A mainland facepalm moment

After several days of chaotic RL and certain PC problems, still unresolved, I logged in to spend some quiet time in my retreat up in the mountains of Sansara. I was thinking about going fishing until I was ready to go to bed, when I spotted this:




That’s right - a huge statue of Stalin, next to my next-door neighbour’s builds on those impossibly tall poles (which until today I naively thought were the worst thing that could befall me in that neighbourhood).


This again makes me wonder, what is it about mainland that brings the craziest in people? And more importantly, how do I top that now?
