You want an accident? I will give you one!

You all know about that chinese child who got overrun by a car and those people who saw her and didn't try to help her.

One reason that they didn't try to get involved is that there are many cases where someone acts like he is injured and when you try to help him, he will sue you and claim that you have hurt him.

I've been living in China for three years and have learned more characters in 30 minutes. No talk on an…
