Dub J's Take On This Whole 9-Day Traffic Jam In China



Well this is probably the weirdest thing you heard about all day. I'm sure it's made the rounds on every blog and news outlet today, but if you haven't heard, China is in the midst of a 9 day traffic jam that is undoubtedly ruining the Yen and the rest of the Chinese economy.

I'm not one to deal with traffic jams well. I get terribly antsy without a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Red. My guess is that this little pod is slowly going to turn into another community. And by community, I mean another country, because China is needlessly large. Minus the shit ton of useless cars and the overabundance of Chinese people, I think this can be the start of a Utopian society. Like, "what's there to eat?" "oh, there's a McDonald's, Burger King, and KFC at that rest stop." And forget about working. Imagine running a little late to work and letting your secretary know, "eh, I'm running a little late", the secretary asks "why and how late?", and you drop the bomb on her: "Well, I'm pretty sure I'm in a 62 mile long traffic jam that has no set end in sight...so i'd ball park around 9-10 days. Am I getting paid for these days." And that's how you get acceptably fired and become a member of China 2: The Utopian Sequel. No more "One Child Policy" or issues with banning Google. It'll be just a quaint experience of fast food, car naps, and no work.

Seriously, people did not want to go on a detour and spend like $0.90 on a toll? Actually, it's Y0.90, which could come out to like 11 dollars, in which case I'd deal with that ol' jam.
