    I didn't even click the link.

    The Chinese have already bombarded our airways with new flight students who have no business in an airplane in this country (can't understand their position reports due to language barriers). They are a clear and present danger to air traffic in this country.

    The idea of them trying to get stuff free does nothing but add to that damage.

    The Chinese govt needs to go fuck itself and stop sending shitholes over here under the pretense of "future professionals of China."

    "There have also been reports of mothers letting their children run around unsupervised while they engage in household work like sewing or peeling of vegetables while sitting on showroom sofas."

    Well that doesn't make any sense at all.

    Why would they peel vegetables on the showroom sofas when Ikea provides those mock up kitchens?

    LOL@Paul.

    For those that didn't click the link. It's an old story about how the Ikea concept is backfiring in China. Instead of going there to buy inexpensive Swedish designed (and Chinese manufactured) furniture, people are going there to hang out. They've essentially made the Ikea showroom a home away from home. Kinda like how we have people that hang out in Starbucks all day and freeload the wifi and cozy seats.

    Maybe I could hang out at an IKEA with some drunk grandmas over Chinese hot pot.
