A queuing gone horribly wrong
For a moment I thought the queuing day imposed by the authoritarian regime is going to have an effect. But apparently not! When push comes to shuffle, a seemingly normal routine can easily disintegrate into something chaotic, as is proven here. Beijing should have known that "an old habit dies hard," and is nearly impossible to eradicate overnight. Same goes for the cumulative effect of pollution. You cannot expect to erase pollution overnight, unless a miracle occur. But then, considering an atheist China, miracle is indeed in short supply there.
