Xi’an University of Science and Technology, located in the city of Xi’an in central China’s Shaanxi province, celebrates its 70th anniversary on October 13, 2011. On the afternoon before the celebration day, the university authorities had all chairs in student dormitories pulled onto the square and neatly arranged for the mega-event. Students left bereft of chairs and yet programmed to lead a sedentary life invented ways to come to grips with the standing issue.

    The guys with computers are all playing video games. Only one guys is not because his desk doesn’t even have a computer on it so he is reading a book. I taught for a semester at a university in China and this doesn’t surprise me at all; the boys did absolutely no homework or projects. Only girls do any assignments. I don’t know how the boys stayed in school. I assume their parents pay off the administration for grades. Keep this in mind when looking for entry level hires out of college.
