    Its funny how you rage about „chinas medicine“ even though most of the medicine we have contains parts of animals aswell besides in africa and america are also many traditional medicine methods, which need animal parts, so there‘s really no reason to hate on chinese people just cause u believe in stereotypes. Esspecially funny is that they even say that most of these animals die because of the rising temperature so the global warming, which the US President, not the chinese, denies lol

    Knowing the fact that half the animals are used in Chinese medicines, it makes me hate China horribly incredibly. They are one of the top countries in many ways, but people are starting to hate them. From dumbass false suspensions, to this, I now hate the near entirety of China. Can't take Mandarin classes nor listen to the recent Hololive CN news without hate

This planet is smaller than we have thought for centuries but we are at a time in history where we must once again adapt and preserve our planet. Or invest in space exploration lol.

    You're right . For the existence of many modern animal species, two factors are dangerous: 1) the so-called Chinese medicine 2) Fun of rich Arab sheikhs. Due to the activities of Arab sheikhs, many species of desert antelopes, saker falcons, cheetahs, and other animals are under the threat of extinction.

    That's it, morph everything into a climate change commercial. Those noses are for filtering out Loess, a German word meaning glacial dust. Glaciers pass over rock and grid it to dust which eventually makes its was to the air and water. Vast clouds of Loess were a constant weather feature during glaciations. The Chinese Yellow River is pigmented with Loess, even today. Each of the four major glaciations over the last two million years produced layers and layers of Loess. Yet Saigas survived each interglacial, some of which were warmer than it is today. The downward facing, hooded nose also appeared in humans during these years to filter out dust. Northern peoples today and desert peoples have this long, slender, downward facing nose. Take your climate change and shove it. Only people so ignorant of geologic time and geology would ever say such stupid things.
