“15 Facts About China That Will Blow Your Mind”

My favorites:

“Chinese are far more likely to believe in evolution than Americans.

In all other countries, people in China (74%), Mexico (69%), Argentina (68%), Great Britain (63%) Russia, Spain (56%), and Egypt (52%) were of the view that more people thought that life on Earth, including human life, evolved over time either by a process guided by God or as a result of natural selection in which no God played a part.”

“When you buy Chinese stocks, you are basically financing the Chinese government. Eight of Shanghai’s top ten stocks are state-controlled arms of the government.”

“50% of counterfeit goods come from China.”

Pretty interesting tidbits….
