Everyone is complaining about the snow and how difficult it makes walking dogs, getting cabs, getting out of train stations and how ayi is on holiday for the next couple weeks. This Shanghaiist has been inspired by the words of Doctor Seuss:
“When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, when you start to get mad… You should do what I do! Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky! Some people are much more…Oh, ever so much more…Oh, muchly much-much more unlucky than you!”
For example, this guy is muchly much-much more unlucky.
Apparently wild Chinese elephants are not all that fond of certain American tourists:
A wild elephant in southern China picked up an American tourist with its trunk and threw him in the air, causing the man to suffer from fractured ribs and stomach injuries, an official said Monday.
Jeremy Allen McGill, who teaches English in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, was found unconscious around dusk on Thursday at the “Wild Elephant Valley” nature reserve in the Xishuangbanna region of Yunnan province.
“It wasn’t clear why he was attacked,” said an official with the Xishuangbanna foreign affairs office who would give only his surname, Chen.
McGill’s abdomen and lungs were “seriously injured” and he had broken ribs, Chen said. He was hospitalized and had stitches up to 40 centimeters (15 inches) long on his stomach, said Chen, who had no details on McGill’s hometown.
