List of the search terms filtered by China

This is the list of 236 terms that China filters from web searches. These include "fetus soup". Apparently it's a delicacy. Yum.

rides it up to GENERAL GREVIOUS and challenges him.

I'm not really sure I want a blog...

But I'm going to try it anyway, as a repository for all the interesting stuff and nonsense that exisits on the internets and flies around in emails. I will try to add at least one thing a day. Though to be honest, that's never going to happen.

Ever gone into an exam without revising?

This one came from Karen. A real answer from an exam. Class.
