2017-07-05 08:59:08 UTC


2017-07-05 19:36:56 UTC


2017-07-05 19:37:33 UTC

tfw china isnt even communist theyre capitalist. usa just likes to blame them saying "theyre just like the russians and russians are evil"

2017-07-06 00:59:02 UTC

lol wow

2017-07-06 00:59:30 UTC

It would be dangerous as hell anyway wouldnt it?

2017-07-06 02:59:07 UTC

no worst than a tunnel

2017-07-06 11:37:03 UTC

2017-07-07 01:17:29 UTC

looks like pakistan

2017-07-07 01:17:33 UTC


2017-07-07 21:50:49 UTC

this is why we keep getting chinked

2017-07-07 21:54:54 UTC

jews infiltrating every group

2017-07-08 13:12:03 UTC

i dont understand this bitcoin mine shit

2017-07-08 13:12:18 UTC

so you can get bitcoins by using hardware?

2017-07-08 13:12:33 UTC

like "create money"

2017-07-08 13:12:36 UTC


2017-07-08 13:13:08 UTC


2017-07-08 13:13:23 UTC

and the hardware after some time becomes useless?

2017-07-08 13:13:24 UTC


2017-07-08 13:13:36 UTC

no, there's just other newer hardware that's better

2017-07-08 13:13:50 UTC

how is that good for the bitcoin economy? wouldnt that create inflation?

2017-07-08 13:13:59 UTC

if everyone can just make money

2017-07-08 13:14:00 UTC

bitcoins get harder to mine over time

2017-07-08 13:15:41 UTC

wouldnt it be possible to someone to create some bullshit program that just makes bitcoins?

2017-07-08 13:16:07 UTC

I think they work off a global blockchain so that isnt possible

2017-07-08 13:16:17 UTC

you can make your own bitcoin yes

2017-07-08 13:16:19 UTC

call it awfulcoin

2017-07-08 13:16:26 UTC

then no one wants it so it's literally worthless

2017-07-08 13:16:35 UTC

bitcoins are only worth what people are willing to pay for it

2017-07-08 13:16:35 UTC

awfulcoin thread on /biz/ go

2017-07-08 13:16:42 UTC


2017-07-08 13:17:15 UTC

for all intents and purposes it's not possible to create counterfeit bitcoin

2017-07-08 13:17:57 UTC

what would even be the point

2017-07-08 13:18:24 UTC

you know what

2017-07-08 13:18:44 UTC

I'm making a new cryptocurrency called wei coin and I'll post it on /biz/

2017-07-08 13:19:07 UTC

I'll tell everyone it's the new thing in china and then watch as they pump it

2017-07-08 13:19:18 UTC

then I will chink everyone and dump everything for fiat

2017-07-08 13:21:06 UTC

I already regret linking that video <:kms:327934280619655179>

2017-07-08 14:28:16 UTC

isn't that exactly what the bus shuttle scam is

2017-07-08 20:07:10 UTC

bitcoins are popular mostly because it's used in drug trade etc. illegal activities

2017-07-08 20:07:27 UTC

also over hype by neckbeards

2017-07-08 20:13:52 UTC


2017-07-08 20:14:00 UTC

it will never be widely adopted

2017-07-09 01:20:52 UTC

what's the easiest way for someone to learn Mandrin? I'm a native english speaker now, and I'm near fluent in Spanish, but what would it take to master Mandrin?

2017-07-09 02:47:53 UTC

easiest would probably differ for everyone, how did you manage to speak spanish?

2017-07-09 03:24:00 UTC

but tbh i failed all 3 attempts to learn language so i shouldnt provide any advice hehe

2017-07-09 04:06:44 UTC

bitcoins are also used in greece

2017-07-09 05:34:35 UTC

anyone use taobao here?

2017-07-09 05:35:53 UTC

specifically the second hand shit http://2.taobao.com/

2017-07-09 05:37:04 UTC

there's this dude selling Raspberry Pi Gameboys, looks rad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7mQvFxuWsg

2017-07-09 07:48:56 UTC


2017-07-09 21:19:11 UTC

Those look dope

2017-07-09 21:19:15 UTC

Wonder how much they cost

2017-07-10 03:36:17 UTC

All the comments are saying "sell on aliexpress please"

2017-07-10 13:43:52 UTC

sent them a mail last night, they still haven't answered

2017-07-10 13:44:21 UTC

they're about 140 assembled for the deluxe version (6 face buttons and PSP-style analog nub) on taobao, not too bad

2017-07-10 13:47:58 UTC

although if you want to go super ghetto this looks more fun to assemble https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mCKVIiTx34

2017-07-10 13:48:26 UTC

and also almost all the individual pieces are still useful on their own if you're sick of it, powerbank, rpi + display, ipega

2017-07-11 23:08:05 UTC


*China is going to start blocking all VPNs next year, though. The government is becoming increasingly isolationist over there. It's a wee bit scary... Now, state-run news agencies have made it clear that the government will shut down the I.P. ranges of all VPNs.*

2017-07-11 23:09:04 UTC

then get a <$5 vps

2017-07-12 03:16:58 UTC

bought a year subscription would be mad if they ban it

2017-07-12 08:20:05 UTC

Mfw I used a VPN the whole time I was there so I could use Google and look at furry porn

2017-07-12 08:21:14 UTC

I paid for it too. This are like the only working ones and even then sometimes they cut out

2017-07-12 08:22:02 UTC

If anyone needs a VPN before China kills them all I recommend Vypr. It server me well. Gives you a gig free and then $10 a month for unlimited. I just canceled after one month

2017-07-12 09:50:37 UTC

Oh nice

2017-07-12 10:58:05 UTC

I use expressvpn

2017-07-12 10:58:26 UTC

seems like a lot of people use it too

2017-07-12 11:09:13 UTC

I do

2017-07-12 14:40:03 UTC

$10/mo for 1TB bandwidth

2017-07-12 14:40:40 UTC

I don't know about the reliability, considering the Germans/Romanians took the server drives for Cockmail one day

2017-07-12 14:41:02 UTC

Oh shit 98% full

2017-07-12 14:46:44 UTC

just get your own cheapo box there are tons of cheap vps sellers

2017-07-12 14:46:59 UTC

but yeah cockli is decent

2017-07-12 14:47:42 UTC

He promised in a video that he'd focus on security of the data. I don't know what he has changed but I dont think the server is run in his house anymore

2017-07-12 14:53:46 UTC

Oh, have you used that before?

2017-07-12 14:53:59 UTC

That looks pretty good. I'd sign up for that if it were good

2017-07-12 14:53:59 UTC

Not the VPS but the email

2017-07-12 14:54:30 UTC

I have a fuckton of throwaway emails from cock.li and the affiliated webmail providers

2017-07-12 14:55:02 UTC

I mostly want a VPS for hosting some minor pointless services though

2017-07-12 15:22:46 UTC

around black friday/cyber monday you can get some for $1 a year from some providers

2017-07-12 15:26:04 UTC

"My kit price is 90 dollars, plus courier about 30 dollars. You can pay me directly to paypal. Send me your name, address, telephone, zip code. And the color of the shell you like."

2017-07-12 15:26:27 UTC

holy balls the 1up gb+pi guy actually answered

2017-07-12 19:25:25 UTC

i don't really trust random services ran by teenagers

2017-07-12 19:25:51 UTC

it doesn't take much processing power to route data since the vps won't be the one generating any packets

2017-07-12 19:26:01 UTC
2017-07-12 19:26:31 UTC

but tbh ur pobably not doing anything important for anyone to impose on any provider to get ur info so bulletproof/offshore isn't really necassary

2017-07-12 19:30:13 UTC

it's not worth to get a vps for no real reason, i have one to host some friends and & shitty art site, but that's cause i'm too lazy to host, on myself

2017-07-12 19:30:30 UTC

i could host it along seedbox on my rpi

2017-07-12 19:30:45 UTC

but it's better to jus find a dedi maybe with some friends & use virutal hosts

2017-07-12 19:30:49 UTC
2017-07-12 21:02:15 UTC

@kenny πŸ‘‰πŸ€› lol I don't need a VPS

2017-07-12 21:03:19 UTC

@kenny πŸ‘‰πŸ€› I was saying I use Cockmail not Cockbox VPS but it was a recommendation -- provided you'll allow a random guy to manage it

2017-07-12 21:09:51 UTC

>trusting terry a davis wannabe to manage your mail

2017-07-12 21:19:31 UTC

ye that's prolly worse

2017-07-12 22:27:37 UTC

@kenny πŸ‘‰πŸ€› @transience >assuming I fucking use a mail provider called COCK to do anything important

2017-07-13 14:29:37 UTC

Can they rent a pajeet?

2017-07-13 14:32:19 UTC

@Deleted User That's mentioned in the first video

2017-07-13 14:33:42 UTC

"We use them very rarely." -"If we use them would it be cheaper?"
"About the same as blacks"

2017-07-13 14:33:52 UTC

2017-07-13 14:35:06 UTC


2017-07-13 14:35:42 UTC

I think the Chinese have already been red-pilled on Indians

2017-07-13 14:36:34 UTC

This video is really well put-together

2017-07-13 14:37:02 UTC

Also that vice video is funny as well, they hire white people to walk around Chinese business conventions pretending to be business men

2017-07-13 14:37:07 UTC

hand over fake business cards

2017-07-13 14:37:09 UTC

Produced by: David Borenstein


2017-07-13 14:37:14 UTC

promising sales

2017-07-13 14:38:18 UTC

I mean these areas look very high-tech

2017-07-13 14:38:31 UTC

Too bad they'll fall apart in 10 years.

2017-07-13 15:50:06 UTC

Shenzen marketplaces look cool

2017-07-13 17:18:58 UTC

It does

2017-07-14 05:51:56 UTC

Yeah me and my coworkers are pissed

2017-07-15 15:47:58 UTC

Now, if you try to say a foreign shows name on weibo (Chinese Twitter), it automatically blocks it and doesn't let people talk about it

2017-07-15 15:48:28 UTC

Government blocked communication of foreign shows. I guess it's to encourage (force) people to watch Chinese shows

2017-07-15 15:49:02 UTC

The Chinese pretty much force people to buy Chinese stuff, and yet no one wants to. People pay 20% more for imported shit and STILL do it

2017-07-15 15:49:04 UTC

westerners should just make shows that're the names of common objects B^)

2017-07-15 16:42:01 UTC

and yet here we are buying chink shit

2017-07-15 18:02:53 UTC

@Stoopeedo Not media though.

2017-07-16 07:15:56 UTC

Ive done my best to enjoy Chinese media

2017-07-16 07:16:04 UTC

Even translated to English subs, it's complete shit

2017-07-16 07:16:20 UTC

It protrays a China that doesn't exist. It's just rich people In super clean places

2017-07-16 09:35:58 UTC

Sounds dull as fuck

2017-07-16 10:28:25 UTC

@kaetaa lfmao its exactly what trump says and the media says it lies

2017-07-16 11:18:47 UTC

trump was right

2017-07-16 11:18:50 UTC

hes always been right

2017-07-16 20:42:46 UTC

Winnie the Pooh is now blacklisted in China

2017-07-16 20:43:28 UTC

Apparently it's because of pic related, they dislike the local internet meme using Winnie the Pooh characters in regards to comparing them to Xi Jinping and other world leaders.


2017-07-16 20:44:12 UTC


2017-07-16 20:45:41 UTC

It turns out the photo was posted in reference to this 2015 picture of Chinese President Xi Jinping inspecting the troops

2017-07-16 21:35:08 UTC


2017-07-16 21:40:07 UTC


2017-07-17 08:12:25 UTC

It's like a little kid

2017-07-17 08:12:51 UTC

"H-hey don't make fun of me!! I'm not a fat bear! Banned !!! G-go away!!"

2017-07-17 10:20:31 UTC

Do chinks not get the irony in the name ''cctv''

2017-07-17 12:58:47 UTC

I feel like he doesnt do it but people behind the scenes do it for him

2017-07-17 12:59:07 UTC

I doubt xi jinping even go on the internet

2017-07-17 13:35:21 UTC

The government was blasted a few years ago when people found out that the guy who created the "golden shield project" doesn't have his internet restricted at all

2017-07-17 13:35:51 UTC

But, of course, it was all blocked from Mass communication

2017-07-17 13:35:58 UTC

it was for simple reason of testing enviroment in his home

2017-07-17 13:36:11 UTC

so he could test the effectiveness of different bypass methods

2017-07-17 13:36:40 UTC

iirc he had second connection what was blocked by said shit

2017-07-17 13:36:58 UTC

my brain might fuck me in this one

2017-07-17 13:37:02 UTC

but thats what i remember reading

2017-07-17 13:57:30 UTC

good idea tbh, i fucking hate being draged to the mall by a girl

2017-07-17 13:58:28 UTC

>not helping her to pick up clothes what youd like to see on her

2017-07-17 13:58:45 UTC

2017-07-18 16:50:37 UTC

When I visited Japan I flew AirChina and got a selection of Chinese films to watch

2017-07-18 16:50:40 UTC

They're uh

2017-07-18 16:50:52 UTC


2017-07-18 16:51:16 UTC

Like, action movies were fine. Same typical big blockbuster garbage

2017-07-18 16:51:33 UTC

But I tried watching a rom com and it was just unbearable

2017-07-18 16:52:03 UTC

Mostly due to China's weird "we hate America but lol our country and society is just like America's amirite?"

2017-07-18 16:55:14 UTC

And in some cases swap America with Japan and it's still true

2017-07-19 00:05:24 UTC


2017-07-19 00:11:40 UTC

I feel everything is copied from koreans

2017-07-19 01:32:10 UTC

@Kilbur nice meme

2017-07-19 13:06:53 UTC

chinese films definitely have its own style away from western films

2017-07-19 13:07:08 UTC

they can be very good but i think shit like romcoms would usually be garbage

2017-07-19 13:21:03 UTC

only hong kong and taiwan films are worthwhile

2017-07-19 14:16:23 UTC

Most /g/ approved technology youtuber right there

2017-07-21 23:27:58 UTC

2017-07-22 15:56:30 UTC

I hate the xrays and shit in China

2017-07-22 15:56:58 UTC

literally mini TSA every time you take public transport

2017-07-22 15:57:41 UTC

plus they're always lousy and full of openings, making them pointless and just an inconvenience

2017-07-22 15:57:51 UTC

kek yeah

2017-07-22 15:57:56 UTC

people would just walk around them

2017-07-22 15:58:32 UTC

or they simply don't work

2017-07-22 15:58:51 UTC

Why do Tibetans have to set themselves on fire

2017-07-22 16:01:50 UTC

i heard its just a warm up

2017-07-24 20:01:26 UTC


2017-07-25 01:55:16 UTC

The mini tsa in China is a joke. It would be so easy to bomb stuff here

2017-07-25 01:55:39 UTC

So many sleeping guards, unworking mahines, or apathetic crew

2017-07-25 01:56:03 UTC

I just walk by the security checkpoints and 90% they don't care

2017-07-25 01:56:19 UTC

I just walk by the security checkpoints and 90% they don't care

2017-07-25 01:56:25 UTC

no more of a joke than USA TSA

2017-07-25 01:56:42 UTC

no more of a joke than USA TSA

2017-07-25 01:57:09 UTC

they fail 95% of the tests or something dumb like that

2017-07-25 01:57:59 UTC

@fedora thats not techmoan

2017-07-25 19:44:06 UTC

Now get lost

2017-07-25 19:44:27 UTC


2017-07-26 06:39:17 UTC

Cmilk has lived in China 8 years and he never figured out how to pay with your phone??? I did it 3 months in

2017-07-26 06:39:31 UTC

He says Chinese people are only ones but that's not true

2017-07-26 06:43:38 UTC

is it alipay or wechat that's the main one there?

2017-07-26 07:53:23 UTC


2017-07-26 07:53:35 UTC

But people seem to use alipay a little bit more.

2017-07-26 07:53:59 UTC

But it's both, really.

2017-07-26 07:54:00 UTC

But it's both, really.

2017-07-26 17:44:29 UTC

when i was there like no one used ali pay they all used wechat

2017-07-26 17:44:54 UTC

it sucks tho cuz you need a chinese bank card and youa have to be a citizen to get one so i coldnt i al;ways had to use cash

2017-07-26 17:45:17 UTC

but id just pay my friend for renting bikes and stuff cuz they only took wechat

2017-07-27 04:39:45 UTC

I see people using wechat more

2017-07-27 04:40:41 UTC

shit is dumb though, cause people are always spending 5 min to get it up
