and bears crap in the woods???
Gmail, and 99% of google api's havent worked for me since arriving in China nearly a month ago; I also find that various innocuous sites (such as a car forum), are heavily restricted and barely function most of the time.
Porn access and torrents are fine though!!! (Well I CAN access them, but at speeds so slow as to make them pointless).
On the other hand, the weather today has been a bright and sunny 20+C, so who needs porn??
