  5. Live Broadcast of Panda Birth Cancelled: Turns Out The Panda Wasn’t Really Pregnant

    I think I saw a Maury episode like this once.

    Maggie Greene is an assistant history professor at Montana State University, and she says the one of the things she misses most about the time she spent in China was being able to peruse second hand book shops and fairs for lianhuanhua. Lianhuanhua are essentially small, cheaply printed comic book adaptations of popular stories, but with a format associated more with picture books in the West: one image per page, with captions.

    Team China: Imagination Police.

Their Internet and media in generally are broadly censored, but a new report suggests that the country's police have arrested at least 20 people for writing romantic tales starring their favorite fictional male characters.

  10. Seems Reasonable: Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Reportedly Sold for $2 Million in China

    Seriously, have you ever seen a mane so fabulous?

    Tibetan mastiffs are like the fluffy versions of fierce lions. Except, of course, that they're more desirable to have as a pet than actual lions because they probably won't kill you.
