Just a Giant Panda Wearing Iron Man Armor
I guess I’m out of the loop on this one, because I had no idea that the Chinese loved Iron Man so much. They really do. Of course they also love pandas. Like, really love pandas.

This University Looks like a Toilet: Crappy Architecture

This University Looks like a Toilet: Crappy Architecture
I would think that a college that looks like a toilet would not be the first place that students would choose to attend – unless they want to flush their money down the drain.

Chinese McDonald’s Get World of Warcraft Makeover: McWarcraft
Why is it that the McDonald’s here in the U.S. don’t get any of the cool, and weird foods that the chain gets in other countries? Here in the U.S. we also don’t get cool restaurant makeovers, all we get are the playgrounds taken out.
