Huanggang, with a population of 6 million. Amazing how a city that most of us haven't heard of in the middle of China has a population close to London's.

It's nuts innit.

But in this case the city is small (366,769). It's the county which surrounds it which has 6m people.

Why is it that hefty disease tends to break out in China? The other day they had a few cases of plague! I have heard hygiene in China is so so

It’s basically a Vorort (as the Germans would say) of Wuhan.

They’re slightly different things - a Vorort is part of a conurbation. slough is a Vorort of London, and a part of the London conurbation.

There are well over 100 cities in China with a population greater than one million (size of Birmingham).  Loads more with a population greater then 500,000 (size of Athens or Lisbon)

the fact that Wuhan has 11 million people and so far only 500 of them have checked in with coronavirus is in itself reassuring tbh

There's nine hundred million of them in the world today
You'd better learn to like them, that's what I say

I don't see why we need to use a German word. There must be a perfectly good English one. We didn't fight two world wars so we can go around speaking German.

There are nine-million bicycles in Beijing,

That's a fact,
It's a thing we can't deny

heh @ ducks

I didn’t fight in no god damn war, and I like speaking German.

But then sneer at the French when they try and de-anglicize their language 

we use far to many English words

but change is underway 

Excellent - does this mean you're permanently fvcking off to a German lawyers discussion board for German lawyers?

No, you obtrusive dicksuck, I shall post on here just to annoy you 

"But then sneer at the French when they try and de-anglicize their language"

Literally no-one does this.

Und so beißt der kleine Hund manchmal am Fuße einer Statue, ohne zu wissen, dass sie tatsächlich ihre eigenen Zähne bricht, während sie auch ihre eigene Piss leckt.

System up with the top down 
Got the city on lockdown 
Drive by in the low ride 
Hands high when we fly by…

Oh wow bright carver has discovered google translate 

doesnt work btw it’s gibberish 

 City sizing all wrong.  
 

Either size by administrative boundary OR by travel-to-work area but don’t mix them.  
 

London is 6 or 7 million by admin boundary but London TTWA is 18 million.  

I went to China and the guide referred to her home as a town. I asked the population she said about 2 million, I said that’s a city, she said no, the nearest city was about 40 mins away for her ‘home town’ and that had 6 million pop.

I'm up to 1000 cases and 2000 suspected cases devil

Buy gold folks, and canned goods.

have u actually killed anyone yet u doss fucker? ALL TALK

36 million people in lock down and 26 dead....and it's only week three devil

 

HBO will be begging for the film rights

No it isn't. Your countrymen love English culture. It's everywhere.

 

I'm currently reading Inferno by Dan Brown.

I wonder if it's were they got the idea from
