  “Curse of the Fuwa” fulfilled by floods BEIJING (Reuters) - Floods sweeping southern China seem to have fulfilled the final stanza of an Internet curse involving Beijing’s Olympic mascots, but censors have been quick to remove postings that might fuel the superstition. After a devastating earthquake struck Sichuan province last month, Internet users tied four of the five “Fuwa” mascots to the calamities that have struck China in the run-up to the Games, which begin in August. One Fuwa is a panda, the totem of Sichuan.

The others resemble a torch, reminding netizens of the protests against the international Olympic torch rally; a Tibetan antelope tied to widespead demonstrations in Tibetan areas; and a swallow that looks like a kite, linked to a deadly train crash in Shandong province.

The final Fuwa, sporting a fish, was left unexplained in the original superstition as a curse yet to come.

Been absent. Was trying to find a story about a wedding couple in a crummy local mall… Read it in the paper, but could not find the story online. I’m loosing the touch. I see a handfull of other stories I wanted to post but where already done so. Pity, I wanted to be the one to give the news about the Unicorn Deer =P

We should have a locked wedding propsoal story page…. I’ve came across 3 in the past while.. aside from mm programmers wedding proposal within a video game, which I posted some time ago.

Proposed during a sky dive…
Wedding couple go shopping at a mall… all dressed up…

Many stories. Night time for me unfortently. Take care.

I’m sure if you chatted up one of the mods they would be happy to ‘sticky’ a thread like that for you!  After, who doesn’t like a nice unusual wedding?! cheese

Glad to see you back here in the trenches with us.  Have a good night.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?
