    This thread is about photos, videos and news articles about Chinese people from around the World. Feel free to discuss the items you see in this thread. And hey post recent photos and videos of Chinese people from around the World!

    I've cleaned out the first 60 pages of the old thread because of issues with tinypic. Some of you may have seen porn in that thread. That is because tinypic deleted my pix and gave those urls to perverts. Never post porn in this forum. That is a no-no!

    Enjoy the thread!

    Re: Chinese Daily Life Photos!

    That is an interesting point.

    After a quick search, it turns out that the Miss Asia pageant includes central asian states such as Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, etc. Also found the list of the finalists on the official homepage for the pageant (english version):

    http://www.missasia.com.hk/profile-e.html

    If I had to hazard a guess, the finalist you are refering to is likely to be Vita Tsybulska from Tajikistan (no 8 in the link above).

    The Fastest Train in the World is in China!!

    :china: This is just awesome...Popeye loves trains...
    We in the US may never see trains such as this because of our addiction to air travel. Maybe someday in the US we will have hi-speed trains in the Northeast and maybe California. I know the Governater is keen on hi-speed rail.

    I'd love to ride on one of these beauties!

    Enjoy the photos!

    Why is train service in North America so terrible compared to Europe and Asia? We really need to invest more into it

    ^It's a result of initiatives that moved away from public transport and investing into private car ownership, as a result the public transport sector suffers.

    If high speed trains means you can get to places without going through a naked scanner or getting groped, I'm all for it!

    Re: The Fastest Train in the World is in China!!

    Because as I stated above.. We in North America are addicted to air travel for city to city travel.. and as Player 0 mentioned somewhat we are addicted to our private cars.

    If you ever see high speed rail in the US it will be in either California or in the US Northeast corridor from Washington DC to Boston MA. Just my opinion.

    The USA once had the most extensive passenger rail system in the World.

    The height of US rail travel and usage was WWII
