Every though nearly every piece of consumer products now originate in China, the World’s Factory still has a name for poor quality control and nearly no oversight. 

This viral video by Mark Bridgman doesn’t help that stereotype. It was actually published a year ago, but has only gone viral now. 

While waiting to depart on his flight from Guangzhou Airport, he was sadly less than surprised to discover air freight employees literally throwing boxes of cargo so carelessly onto the conveyor belt that most of the packages fell of with a great crash. 

After watching the men pathetically attempt at cleaning up their mess, Mark couldn’t help but let off some steam, saying, “What a joke, If you had put them on right first, you wouldn’t have this problem. I hope they’re not fragile.”

As a promotion for the CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos The Hour, they invited world famous martial arts actor Jackie Chan to tell a story as a part of their Best Story Ever series

Jackie recollects how he had the special opportunity as a young man to star in a Bruce Lee film.

He adorably admits how after Bruce accidentally hit him too hard in the face, he purposefully ‘milked’ the occasion to spend a little more quality time with his martial arts idol.

There are few things dreaded more than having one’s flight delayed. Of course, what is worse is being delayed on the tarmac for hours after leaving the comforts of the airport bar behind to board the plane.

Now your delayed, and unnecessarily uncomfortable. 

And that’s exactly what happened to musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra while traveling from Beijing to Macao. After boarding their plane, the passengers discovered they would have to wait three long hours in the cramped fuselage before departing. 

To make lemonade out of lemons, and to entertain and calm the other travelers, the musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra decided to provide a “pop up” performance.

“Absolutely gorgeous. A clear case of music being the international language,” says viewer Alexandra Billings

Last March, the man with the new Terminator arm went viral after he showed the camera how he can now use the fully robotic arm to tie his shoes and play cards. 

Now, Chinese farmer Sun has made international headlines after news of his homemade bionic arms hit the web.

NTDTV reports that after a tragic farming accident, the farmer lost both of his hands. 

Without the resources for a medical prosthesis, and disappointment with budget arms, the farmer decided to make his own. Now, he has recovered many of his lost functions, and can help in the fields again.

Better, other people in the area are now approaching Sun for their own bionic arms, supplementing his income further and helping the community.
