    I just tried to search, but didnt find good information.
    How bad is China rail when compared to others?
    Does anyone have pointers to some accident and/or death rates per XXX miles to compare with other countries.

    I've had PDLM and Jay do it to me in the last few days so I think you are nobody on this board until you have your words written for you by a ghostwriter.

    No problem, you are still confused about the whole thing - probably why you're not making any sense.

    Uh oh... Is it possible to walk from hong kong to guangzhou without crossing any roads?

    This is turning out to be difficult. I think I'll just lock myself in a room and never move.

    I've been told I shouldn't eat grilled food because it will give me cancer... Apparently that's why grilled food is so hard to find in Hong Kong - They're worried about cancer so they'd rather deep fry food here for health reasons.

    Fan-fucking-tastic.

    In this case I don't think he was. Bryant was very clear; he said:

    Rather than dragging out the tragedy they've decided to clean up the mess and carry on.

    In England, we used to call that a stiff upper lip.....Keep Calm and Carry On.

    Of course nowadays there would be meaningless snivelling public enquiries that would drag on for years costing millions of taxpayer pounds and making lawyers rich. Later, a three thousand page document would be produced that advises that another layer of red tape and cotton wool be wrapped around the human condition...

    I respect there decision...bury the bloody thing and get on with it..
    But now he's back-pedalling.
