    Depressing. Ever notice it's never sunny in China? Is it the climate or pollution?

    That is true. Every videos or pic I seen is always "cloudy". Or ppl are walking with face masks.

    That's actually a common misconception when it comes to the face masks. It's a common courtesy to wear one when you're sick so you don't get others sick and it's also common for people to wear them during allergy season so they don't breathe in pollen. Very few wear them because of smog, especially since they aren't made to help with the pollution and the people know that.

    Wondered that too. Other news sources said the owner also got the exclusive management right of 18,300 sq2 of commercial land in the city for 20 years. That is not a bad compensation at all.

    They did the same thing a hundred years ago in Seattle when they re-graded the downtown area. They didn't force anybody to have their property re-graded, but if they didn't...

    I've also seen a couple of malls that had one little house out in the middle of their parking lot, until some old lady died.
