  2. Wait, that shit actually worked? Either lucky as hell or he’s Chinese Rambo making traps all over his place

  3. A hole with a light covering over it, one strong enough for humans to walk on but not strong enough to support the weight of the machine, would make for a good trap

  4. It worked temporarily. They'll be back with police to drag him out. When the CCP decides to reclaim land for state projects, nobody can say no.

  5. That's an excavator, my extensive career as a toddler naming construction equipment has prepared me for this moment.

  6. I got a big old bucket and I scoop all the time. Digging holes in the ground wonder what I'll find. I'm an earth investigator, I'm an excavator.

  7. "And then Grandpa disappeared and we never heard from him again, and I lost 1000 social credits every time I looked him up online"

  8. That's a roman candle. What's strange is unsupervised kids often fire them at each other usually without injury and that's without the benefit of an enclosed cab.

  9. Don't feel too bad for him. He legit probably has a decent chance at becoming a millionaire l. The longer he stays the more money the development company has to give him

  10. American media purports that there is no room for dissidence in China at all. In fact, Chinese protest and fight back like this against local government all the time. Much more than Americans do anyway.

  11. DW did a documentary about people like this guy. Demolition crews "accidentally" damage the house and then pay measly compensation. Iirc, the homeowner was legally in the right, but the police weren't doing anything to stop the developer. So it's not clear what would happen to this guy.

  12. Remember reading one guy put posters of xi jinping and they weren't able to demolish.his house cause it was illegal to remove the posters

  13. He won the war even before this battle. Payouts for land drafts are astronomical in China, even if he has to do some time he'll be retired after.

  14. "If we do not wish to fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to throw something odd and unaccountable in his way." --Sun Tzu

  15. It's an excavator not a bulldozer. And probably the reason why he's backing up is because those machines have many oil leaks and the Roman candle could catch the excavator on fire by igniting the oil that's leaked out.

  16. without context the most reasonable explanation i can think of is this guy land leases has expired and is getting taken back. it's even more sad thinking your land and house that you worked for your whole life for is getting taken away because law didn't allow you to own it.

  17. This happened to my grandmothers house in rural shanghai. The government reclaimed the land to build an international school. They also built new development apartment high rises to compensate the people who were displaced. My grandmother and aunts all got their own newly built condos. Its really not as bad a deal as the internet makes it seem.

  18. And he was never heard from again, and neither was his entire family. Good on him, tho. I applaude all defiance to a corrupt system.

  19. LMAO this is me every time I end up driving armor in squad. The gunner's like, "Push up! Push up! Wait, oh fuck, Back, Back, BACKBACKBACKBACKBACKBACK- why'd we flip over?"

  20. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Fireworks, shall not be infringed.

  21. China?! CCP gets pissy if someone walks the street wrong. As awesome as this was to protect yourself and family. I’m worried what they are going to do to this poor guy.

  22. I mean, just get out and run at that point, no chance he harms the excavator more than the driver did.
