I know you mentioned diapers, but that is a small element in the total discussion. The topic includes water pollution, land pollution caused by overgrazing and bad farming practices, deforestation, desertification, water usage by it's coal firing industries polluting streams, coastal pollution causing algae blooms. China is failing in all these areas.

16 of the worlds 20 top polluted cities are in China.

Slowly...slowly, the people in China itself are starting to put pressure on the government, in spite of it's rigid structure, to enact rules and regulations.
I said behind the times in terms of not using diapers. I never said anything about pollution or anything else. Talk about making things up and then arguing about the made up stuff.

Yes I realized that and that's the reason I mentioned it in context - the point being mentioning diapers is so immaterial to the total pollution discussion as to be irrelevant.
No one is arguing about made up stuff, what was made up?

But anyways, this discussion is about manners. Let's get back to spitting...

Funny stuff. Get out of your HDB flat in Singapore and walk down to the local food court with the locals and have a few Tiger beers. They have endless stories about the PRC's. With the culture class and even the language differences a lot of old time Singaporeans feel like they're living in a foreign country with the influx of mainlanders.
