I've sometimes been accused of being too dumb to come in when its raining.  The acquisition of a waterproof camera gives me a new excuse. ahahahahah

A waterfall into a pedestrian tunnel.  I'm sure this is perfectly normal. ahahahahah

Chinese don't know how to "carve" meat, they hack it into bits with a cleaver.

It's the same in Korea. They have absolutely no concept of dis-articulating a bird at the joints - they just hack it up 'willy nilly' with a cleaver. Consequently, there are shards of bone (especially from the hollow, long bones) and you have to be very careful when eating.

It is my understanding that poultry is carved, "a la shrapnel" because it better exposes the marrow, hence, providing more flavor. Seems common in asia. Makes me think of roadkill a la Buick Roadmaster.
