Having worked on a couple of new building projects, that is impressive.

Prefab…yes…still impressive…definitely!

China is starting to flex it's muscle and show us what it can do. In the last week they have brought thier space stations within 300m of each other (an amazing feat), unveiled and impressive super computer, and is now this…

I'm glad the new world superpower has it's shit together…

Maybe it won't fall down but the paint cuts will be sloppy, the doorknobs will probably come loose and fall off and the plumbing will be a nightmare.

Or it will just fall down…

Even when they build safe they still do a shit job with most things.

I bought an office chair from the deepest darkest part of china. After 3 months all my back hair is gone and one wart fell off. Chair imploded after 8 months.
Not a bad outcome all in all.
