Another week

Sorry, but this site will be dark for yet another week or so. Then I’ll be back with an unprecedented burst of creative, enlightening, impeccably written posts. At least I hope so.

With the coming of the new year Richard must be working on new long term contracts for the Chinese hamsters that power the Peking Duck and talking to the tax lawyers about how to gip the CCP out of the increased tax revenues now due them.

For the new year of 2008, I believe China should immediately start researching a type of nuclear bomb that, when detonated, has the ability to destroy the entire globe and end human civilization.

This type of nuclear deterrance does not threaten America, does not threaten Japan, does not threaten Taiwan, but threatens the entire globe. In other words, this type of bomb should be equipped such that there’s no need for a missile or a bomber to deliver it anywhere, it can be placed within China, and when detonated, has enough force to create a crater in the Northern Hemisphere, to completely smash the Euro-Asia continent, to change the trajectory of the earth, to create a world armaggeddon scenario. So that it is “game over” for everyone, whether you are man or woman, rich or poor, powerful or weak.

Now you may say: Math, you are ridiculous, shut your ugly mouth! But I do not believe this plan is ridiculous at all. Imagine if one day China goes to war with the US, then both sides will no doubt use their nuclear weapons. And the result is that the entire world could be destroyed by those two countries’ nuclear arsenal. Then the most likely scenario is that: China first destroys the US, then the nuclear submarines of the US launches several hundreds nuclear missiles on China, and destroys China, and both countries’ allies start throwing nuclear weapons at each other, and the world is destroyed subsequently. Now, if the world will be destroyed anyway, then what’s difference if it’s destroyed through a big world war, or destroyed by a single detonation of a single weapon? Wouldn’t the second method be a lot easier?

I believe this plan is completely doable. For example, during World War 2, a single nuclear weapon destroyed the entire Hiroshima. Today, any country’s nuclear bomb is hundred times more powerful than the one dropped in Hiroshima. Of course I am not a nuclear expert, but we can put 100 of today’s most powerful nuclear weapons and bundle them all together, for the sole purpose of destroying the entire Euro-Asia continent, for evaporating the entire Pacific Ocean. And we don’t need to worry about the size of that bomb, this way, I believe a bomb with such force can certainly be created.

Recently I downloaded a film called “The Day After Tomorrow”. This film talks about how global warming led to a sudden drop in temperature in the world and created a huge disaster. I believe, if that nuclear bomb can move the trajectory of the earth so that it’s further away from the sun, then the environmental changes on the earth will certainly cause everyone to die very soon. So whatever the result, one thing is for sure, everyone will die.

I believe if China starts building such a bomb, it should not keep it a secret. In fact, it should openly spread this news and tell the world that we currently have this type of bomb, and none of you will escape it. So if you try to push me too hard, then I’ll bundle myself to all of you and all of us will die. Even a rabbit knows how to bite, so if China is being pushed too hard, it knows how to destroy the world.

I believe this type of bomb should be placed where it’s not secure at all. For example, we can randomly pick a citizen in Beijing and put a bomb in his backyard, with no security guard at all. And the bomb should be designed such that it’s detonated very easily without any fail-safe mechanisms. So that if a child was playing in the backyard and accidentally pushed the button on the bomb, then the bomb will go off, not to mention what will happen if the US airforce tries to attack Beijing…. This way, it is even more of a dangerous deterrent to everyone.

One thing we need to consider is that the survival abilities of the Chinese people are very very strong, so if there are a few lucky people who survive this nuclear blast, then they are probably Chinese people. Then we can start another civilization and perhaps unite the entire world again.

I think this type of bomb is very suitable for China, because China does not have the money to build 7 aircraft carriers and 10,000 missiles. So a single bombs destroys everyone. Also, America is already slowly destroying the world, it is the source of all problems in the world, and is the world’s head mafioso, if we do not beat it to its ground, then the world will be destroyed sooner anyway by America.

Math, what would we do without you?

Tom, thanks for nailing it. This site will soon be renamed the Peking Hamster. Just one tip: always know your source.

Know my source? Well I tracked down the IPs and other personally identifying info on my mighty morphin’ name stealin’ troll and it led back to a web browser on a computer in a law office of an alleged China expert back near Seattle.

But another tipster told me that your guys were on a commando mission to run an illegal electricity tap off the generators at the Three Gorges Dam in order to allow mass layoffs of the hamsters that power the Peking Duck to avoid the huge huge huge huge problems for furrin’ investment associated with the new contract law.

I’ll bet Math is not the only Chinese person thinking of this. Playing poker with Chinese people is the same type of game, they put huge amounts of money in the pot hoping others will back down for fear of losing big. But all it takes is one person to match the hand and more times than not Mr. Big Chinese Gambler has a pair of 3s at best.

What a bad, bad country.
