Sh*t, Chinese mining industry, get it together!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Quote: "China's mines are the deadliest in the world, with more than 2,600 people killed in coal mine accidents in 2009 alone. . . Another gas leak in 2008 at the same mine killed 23 people."

And this is why China will someday, very soon, rule the world: an almost hilarious lack of respect for life combined with an insatiable lust for natural resources. We have taught them so well.
