Chinese Intravene Exams

Im chinesischen Internetz gehen grade Bilder dieses Klassenzimmers rum, in dem grade 'ne Arbeit geschrieben wird und in dem Infusionsbeutel von der Decke hängen. Laut einem Herrn Xia, dem "director of Office of Academic Affairs", werden die Schüler intravenös mit Aminosäuren versorgt. Dystopian Future has arrived, willkommen in der Matrix.

Mr. Xia, director of Office of Academic Affairs, said that what is delivered to the students intravenously is nothing but amino acids to restore their health.

“The state grants a 10-yuan subsidy for amino acids to each graduating senior that will participate in the gao kao (National College Entrance Exam). Any student that feels not well can go to the infirmary and take amino acids on the IV drip,” Mr. Xia explained. He said that some students had been below par recently due to the sudden weather changes in the city of Xiaogan, and the school infirmary had been packed with students. In order to spare students the trouble of running back and forth between the infirmary and the classroom and save their time, the school decided to arrange IV drip sessions right in the classroom.

[...] 成虫爬啊爬:There is one thing more refreshing than amino acids. It’s called cocaine. Fight, dear students! Our motherland’s tomorrow depends on you with IV drip dispensing bottles and syringes!
