Cost of a Computer

The Education Department of Schwerin in Germany threw away 170 computers which were infected with a virus called Confickr. The department figured it was cheaper than dealing with the hassle. Microsoft has released a Malicious Software Removal Tool, which fix the issue with 'one click'. However, hiring someone to perform the 'one click' cost more than dumping them and ordering some new.

With few exception, computers especially lower end computers are manufactured in China. After they were dumped, they would also find their way back to China to be processed. The reason they are so cheap to build and to be discard is because China does not factor in any cost of damages done to the environment and workers.

Environmental impact in building and recycling computers are highly visible because of many toxic materials it contains. On the other hand, families across the world are throwing lightly used clothes, furnitures and house appliances not because they broke, but because newers one are so cheap. Many of these will impact the environment locally. In this case, whom should we blame?

Education, China's the next Showing of Soft Power

More universities in Australia are accepting the scores of China's National College Entrance Examination. The University of New South Wales joined La Trobe University, Monash University, University of Adelaide and University of Sydney among others to use this exam for admission purpose.

Although there have been sharp criticism on the Chinese testing system, blaming it overemphasizes on mechanics rather than creativity, many western universities find it effective in identifying "students with outstanding ability".

Cheating in Classrooms: Catch Me If you Can

UCLA professor Peter Nonacs informed his students that the Game Theory exam would be "insanely hard", but, it would allow anything including talking, Googling, or hiring an outside expert as consultant, as long as there was no blood draws. In other words, students are encouraged, or, invited to cheat through it.

The actual examine went exactly as Professor Nonacs had planned. The majority of students signed up to share one copy of answers, while three lone wolfs submitted individual solutions.

Professor Peter Fröhlich of Johns Hopkins University had always used the highest points in an exam as the 100% (A), and calculate the rest of the class accordingly. This policy is public and effective to differentiate the differences among students, until they figured it out.

Last semester, in Professor Fröhlich's Introduction to Programming Class, students boycotted the final exam so that everyone ended up with the 'A' with the same highest point: 100%.

Indian American Professor Spearheaded in Boycotting Israel

Under leadership of its past president Rajini Srikanth, Associate Professor in Asian American Studies at University of Massachusetts Boston, the Association for Asian American Studies (AAAS) passed a secret ballot resolution to endorsing the boycott of Israeli universities.

The current president for the association distant herself from the resolution.

Recent Photo of Song Yaowu Surfaced

One red princeling Hu Shiying posted a photo of a private gathering of China's red princelings, in which a infamous red guard Song Yaowu appeared.

The party was hosted by Xi Jinping, then CCP Party Boss in Zhejiang Province. Others appeared in this photo includes Bo Xicheng (son of Bo Yibo and brother of Bo Xilai), Liu Yuan (son of Liu Shaoqi), Wang Qishan (son in law of Yao Yilin), Yang Li (daughter of Yang Shangkun), Chen Yuan (son of Chen Yun) among others. Song Yaowu is the women 4th from left in the front. Xi Jinping is 3rd from right in the second row.

Song, together with another Red Guard Deng Rong (daughter of Deng Xiaoping), killed their teacher Bian Zhongyun, the first teacher to be killed by students in the Great Cultural Revolution. The incident opened an era when red guards across the country were mobilized to take over schools by violence. Many more teachers would be tortured and killed in the next few years.

Royal New Zealand Ballet Canceled Tour in Tianjin

Visiting Royal New Zealand Ballet cancelled its performance of Giselle in Tianjin schedule in April 20-21 because of insufficient heating in cold temperature.

According to RNZB, the room temperature was 10 celsius at the rehearsal.

According to Beijing based Propel, the operator of Tianjin Grand Theater, the room temperature was 18.1 celsius at the rehearsal (confirmed by New Zealand media), and that they expect to raise it to 20 celsius for the actual performing.

The RNZB demands the room temperature to be raised to at least 23 celsius for safety of dancers, and canceled the show a couple of hours before it started when it was obvious the stage would not be warm enough. Angered host in Tianjin responded with a lock out of stage sets and costumes, until a satisfactory amount of ransomsettlement was reached after negotiating with New Zealand's Embassy in Beijing directly. Propel emphasized that the 23 celsius requirement was nowhere to be found in the written contract.

On Weibo, Propel explained the exterior glass facades did not provide any thermal insulation. Furthermore, the entire so called 'cultural center', which includes several centers and museums, do not have independent heating. As an emergency measure, they rented dozens of industrial strength heavy duty heating fans and warmed up the theater for days, in vain.

It is a slap in the face on China's Giant Leap Forward Movement, echoing an ambition to gain recognition of its commanding economic power. The Tianjin Grand Theater costs $300 million, and was viewed as the pride of Chinese modernization, second only to the National Grand Theater in Beijing.

Tianjin Grand Theater is designed by Hamburg based Gerkan, Marg und Partner. China has made itself a gallery of innovative while untested designs.

Online Defamation Lawsuits Swamp Courthouses Around Globe

A lady in London was facing a libel action (HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE, QUEEN'S BENCH DIVISION. Claim number HQ12D05081 Mr Kirby Kearns and Mrs Lesley Kemp) after she complained about her employer on twitter. Lesley Kemp was paid £146 for her translation work by a company Resolution Productions. However, £25 were deducted as bank fees. Kempt rented on her twitter account and called the company 'disgraceful'.

Qatar based Resolutions Productions paid the £25, then sued her for libel over her tweets. They are seeking £50,000 in damages and £70,000 in cost.

Across the Atlantic Ocean, Amy Nicholls of South Carolina was sued (The Court of Common Pleas in Medina County, Ohio, Case No. 13CIV0351) by an Ohio-based company Med Express over a negative review she left at the company's eBay seller account. Nicholls was surprised by a postage-due for products she ordered online which she paid in full plus shipping fees, and left a negative review "'Order arrived with postage due with no communication from seller beforehand." on the transaction. Med Express admitted the comment was true, but nevertheless not happy it might hurt their business.

What was absent from the picture was eBay, the ecommerce giant where the transaction and user feedbacks took place. EBay set up a reviewing system as an essential and critical feature to remedy the uncertainty and unfamiliarity of an online auction place. If eBay did not back up its user who used the system exactly as it is supposed to work, then eBay literally set up a trap for its users. In this case, standing by is not only coward, unethical, but also suicidal.

So you could be sued for comments made on Twitter, or negative reviews left at eBay even though they are truthful and factual. You might find a lawyer who thought your case was significant enough that they would defend you pro bono. However, for every publicized cases with happy ending, there are many who have concluded the other way.

Liberals on Motivation of Boston Bombings

NPR's counter terrorist correspodent Dina Temple-Raston just spoke on air to give a rationale for the bombing of Boston Marathon, where three persons died including a Chinese graduate student Lv Lingzi. Dina said Muslims in Chechnya were frustrated the US's hesitance to interfere. To quote her words, '.. two men might have been upset that the US hasn't done enough to help Chechnya in its battle with the Russians.......one of the things that really upsets them is that the United States took so long to get into Bosnia.......it took a long time and they (the US) dragged their feet......' It's not surprising to hear a liberal to show empathy for terrorists, but it's remarkable that they already started defending them even at this 'very early stage' when police and public are still trying to pieces together pieces of information.

Dina Temple-Raston is an award-winning journalist and author. She was a White House correspondent for Bloomberg News during Clinton Administration.

Fudan University Poisoning Case Suspect Unmasked

This is said to be the weibo of the single suspect Mr. Lin. Lin's last weibo was posted on April 7. He lamented on the limit of reach of medical assistance, and wish he could help patients beyond his specialities.

Lin tipped the cause, Alloxan, of his roommate Mr. Huang's illness via an anonymous message, which helped doctors to make a positive diagnose, but too late to save Huang life. The message also helped police to trace back to Lin. Huang passed away on April 16 after fell into liver exhaustion shortly after April 1st.

Lin was taken away from his dorm room by police in the night on April 13, but it is still not clear as to a cause or motivation.

Rumor has it that Lin's target was a third student sharing the dorm room. Huang wasn't staying at the time, but came back unexpectedly. Huang felt sick after drank from the water dispenser installed in the room. Huang suspected the water was contaminated (from manufacture, transportation, etc.) so he washed the water bottle afterwards.

Lin was originally from Guangdong Province, and attended the Sun Yet-sen University.

The victim's last weibo was on March 13: Dark Knight: No one can eascape moral judgement.

How Chinese Children Go to School

This picture was taken by Lu Qixing in an elementary school in Shanjiang Township in Fenghuangshan (Phoenix Hill) County of Jiangxi Province on July 29, 2012. The sister, a 2nd grader comforted her little brother to take a nap while attending a class. Their parents were hundreds of miles away working as migrant workers to support the family. The boy's head looks big perhaps due to malnutrition.

It's a common scene in many rural schools in China. Children in poverty not only have to take care of their family, but also keep up with school.

The kids are looking up to their parents. They know they have to contribute with their own ways because their parents are working even harder for the family. They understanding going to school is a duty that every kid undertakes as a natural law. That is the secret for the Chinese success.

If the parents can bring home more by not working, thanks to a skewed welfare system, then who can these kids look up to? If going to school in the morning is praised as a virtual, then why do they have to elevate themselves to where they do not see themselves belong?

Children in Zhangjiawan Village, Sangzhi County of Hunan Province went to school, climbing these multi-level high ladders. Although grownups and elders would not go out of village in years, children, beginning at 5 year old, climb up and down these ladders two times a day to go to school in the town. If they drop, it will take awhile to reach the bottom of the valley 800 feet down.

But that no excuse to not go to school, and no one had ever even thought that way. This is how Chinese children go to school, without a school bus, without attendance bonus, without free lunch.

Readers of Daily Mail commented: Those truants in the UK should count their luck seeing how much effort these kids put into going to school; the road to success is paved with snakes and ladders; how amazing to see a five year old read by herself before school; are our politician still trying to figure out why China's the taking over? Hard working and self disciplines; we wouldn't have so many obesities had our kids going to school like that!

Chinese Professor Arrested After Oral Dispute with Administrator

Lei Wu, an assistant professor at University of Houston-Clear City, was arrested after an oral dispute with Sharon White, program chair and associate professor.

Dr. Wu graduate from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) with a B.S. in Computer Science in 1994.

According to news report, the two had a work-related dispute, during which Dr. Wu said, '.. not good for either. There would be blood..' Dr. White interpreted the word 'blood' as a threat. However, without further information on context, it's very hard to link the word 'blood' to blood as blood in a body. In English, the word 'blood' has been used casually to refer to damage and cost on money, reputation, etc. You may read 'Motorola was bleeding ..' or 'the senate meeting last week was bloody. There was no winner out of the fiercy blaming on each other..' It may also mean anxiety, for example, 'this waste of time got my blood up'.

In 2010, a HUST alumnus Dr. Lishan Wang shot his colleague Vajinder Toor at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York.

Dr. White recorded the conversation. It is not clear whether Dr. Wu was aware of the recording. In Texas, recording needs 'one-party consent' only (Texas Penal Code, §16.02).

One commentator KateMullet posted at a highered news site: "If we're going to charge him for saying that, we need to charge a lot of elected reps and politicians and others. It is a common expression. An eye raising one. But a common expression, nevertheless."

A Turning Point of Chinese Students Study Abroad

The Council of Graduate Schools released new data which showed a U turn for number of Chinese students applying to schools in the US.

Among regions tracked by the Council, India, Brazil and Africa saw significant gains in number of applications, while China, South Korea, Taiwan, Canada and Europe saw decline. In the case of Chinese applicants, there is a 5% loss comparing year 2012 to 2013. It is a dramatic change because in three previous years, the number had been growing by 19%, 21% and 20% respectively.

One way of reading this change is that, in addition to many Chinese applied within the US, China had reached the same level of development with South Korea and European countries, when youth are no longer eyeing the US and the only viable path to success.

There are two Chinas on the mainland. Those who benefit from the economic reform and social heritage and those who do not. For the first group, their technical skills, income and purchase power are comparable to peers in developed countries. They are becoming less motivated to looking to the west. The second group which are comprised of roughly half of Chinese population are still too poor to think about studying abroad.

Hopefully, we will see the next bump when the fortune is trickled down to Chinese families who are still struggling for basic life needs.

Senator, I salute your 1/32 Cherokee heritage

One high school graduating senior spoke up on the public discrimination against non-privileged white students in name of Affirmative Action.

Suzy Lee Weiss earned high marks in tests, interned at the US Senate, but still, was rejected by a score of elite ivy league schools.

The admission process of elite colleges has become a black box trading platform of money and political clout. The 'Affirmative Action' label serves as a DMCA recognized fake lock, on no other purpose but to reject public inquiries.

It's nothing about equality; the system has been rewired for the new segregation.

Offsprings from privileged families hard wired themselves in, and covered it with the AA. They claim any transparency, being academic or not, would hurt the AA. The end results are hardworking students from hard working families were kept out, regardless how hard they had worked, and regardless how hard their families had worked their asses off to educate them.

You can't move your eyes off from this obvious trading table without calling it what it is, Discrimination.

It is also the new Segregation. The admission offices at elite colleges controlled by ill-minded racists and their puppies invented this system to permanently separate those have to those don't. The flowability of the society is cut by removing the entire central piece from it.

Like familiar scenes in Blockbuster movies or Nintendo console games, the evil only grows stronger after every defeat. The new Segregation is more effective when the education system excludes the central segment out of consideration, so that no one could threaten the privileged few by climbing up the ladder, as there is no ladder.

The smart designers succeeded in making a deal with some minority leaders to cover this new Segregation as the alias to Affirmative Action. Affirmative Action is portrayed as the treasure, rather than a path. Utilizing their monopoly of news outlets and academic positions, privileged elites make it a political taboo questioning of this systematic Segregation.

The signature of the Affirmative Action college admission is its opaqueness. No quantifiable achievement can guarantee a seat in a classroom in elite colleges. Scoring full grade in SAT or ACT are not a pass to elite education, nor is winning in an international academic contests. Colleges insisted on the opaqueness, and claimed the 'diversity' would have been killed if any internal formulas were revealed. It is no secret that internal formulas were in existence, as the public learned accidentally from the University of Illinois, where each politician were ranked and assessed on their 'clout factor' in making admission decisions on their kids. Your skin color is also measured with help of a 18% gray card.

By waving an AA banner, scam artists hired by the privileged few, convinced the nation the Segregation is what they want.

The Asian community had been the biggest victim in this Segregation. Study had found a high school graduate with Chinese parents needs to score 430 points higher (out of 2400 points total) to get in a good education system than an African American student with comparable background in every non-academic fields. She/he will also have to score 100 higher than a white peer for the same opportunity to be considered by an elite college. Separate study found all elite college who exercise the 'opaque' admission procedure kept a strict quota system on number of Asian students, despite the growing representation of Asian students in high school graduates population.

Suzy's letter hit it right on the head on the scam. New Segregationists use the Affirmative Action as the glorified rationale to reject any measurable factors in the consideration for college admission. However, what they did not say was that only academic measurement was excluded. They do measure you on other factors that they had an advantage, such as volunteering on an African vacation trip. Kids from hardworking Americans do not have money to go to Africa. Instead, they have to help the family flipping burgers in local McDonald's. However, according to rules set up by New Segregationists that did not count.

To (All) the Colleges That Rejected Me


Like me, millions of high-school seniors with sour grapes are asking themselves this week how they failed to get into the colleges of their dreams. It's simple: For years, they—we—were lied to.

Colleges tell you, "Just be yourself." That is great advice, as long as yourself has nine extracurriculars, six leadership positions, three varsity sports, killer SAT scores and two moms. Then by all means, be yourself! If you work at a local pizza shop and are the slowest person on the cross-country team, consider taking your business elsewhere.

What could I have done differently over the past years?

For starters, had I known two years ago what I know now, I would have gladly worn a headdress to school. Show me to any closet, and I would've happily come out of it. "Diversity!" I offer about as much diversity as a saltine cracker. If it were up to me, I would've been any of the diversities: Navajo, Pacific Islander, anything. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, I salute you and your 1/32 Cherokee heritage. Related Video

I also probably should have started a fake charity. Providing veterinary services for homeless people's pets. Collecting donations for the underprivileged chimpanzees of the Congo. Raising awareness for Chapped-Lips-in-the-Winter Syndrome. Fun-runs, dance-a-thons, bake sales—as long as you're using someone else's misfortunes to try to propel yourself into the Ivy League, you're golden.

Having a tiger mom helps, too. As the youngest of four daughters, I noticed long ago that my parents gave up on parenting me. It has been great in certain ways: Instead of "Be home by 11," it's "Don't wake us up when you come through the door, we're trying to sleep." But my parents also left me with a dearth of hobbies that make admissions committees salivate. I've never sat down at a piano, never plucked a violin. Karate lasted about a week and the swim team didn't last past the first lap. Why couldn't Amy Chua have adopted me as one of her cubs?

Then there was summer camp. I should've done what I knew was best—go to Africa, scoop up some suffering child, take a few pictures, and write my essays about how spending that afternoon with Kinto changed my life. Because everyone knows that if you don't have anything difficult going on in your own life, you should just hop on a plane so you're able to talk about what other people have to deal with.

Or at least hop to an internship. Get a precocious-sounding title to put on your resume. "Assistant Director of Mail Services." "Chairwoman of Coffee Logistics." I could have been a gopher in the office of someone I was related to. Work experience!

To those kids who by age 14 got their doctorate, cured a disease, or discovered a guilt-free brownie recipe: My parents make me watch your "60 Minutes" segments, and they've clipped your newspaper articles for me to read before bed. You make us mere mortals look bad. (Also, I am desperately jealous and willing to pay a lot to learn your secrets.)

To those claiming that I am bitter—you bet I am! An underachieving selfish teenager making excuses for her own failures? That too! To those of you disgusted by this, shocked that I take for granted the wonderful gifts I have been afforded, I say shhhh—"The Real Housewives" is on.

Spy Catchers

FBI scored one more hit when Chinese national Huajun Zhao was arrested on Sunday March 31, 2013. Zhao was holding two tickets, according to local media coverage, to China on April 2. Zhao was charged with economic espionage.

Zhao's case is strikingly similar to arrestment of Jiang Bo, an ISA contractor working at a NASA facility last month. Jiang was stopped at the Dulles airport holding a one way ticket to China.

From prima facie evidence, there is little doubt that Zhao was up to something. His supervisor Professor Marshall Anderson noticed three vials were missing from his desk on February 22. Surveillance camera mounted in the hallway recorded only one person entered the professor's room around that time. When confronted by campus security, Zhao did not admit nor deny taking the tubes, but promised 'a resolution' in ten days. The stolen material was a compound C-25 being developed at the lab, that is potentially helpful in fighting cancer. Campus security also found tons of files related to the research on Zhao's laptop. Furthermore, campus IT logged a remote access on the day Zhao was suspended at the lab. The cyber invader deleted raw data related to the development of C-25. Campus IT was able to restore deleted data from backup. On the day of his arrest, federal investigators recovered a receipt for a package to China. The missing material is possibility already sitting on a desk in China.

It sounds a typical spy story. However, CIA instructor Walter Burke told us in 2003 movie The Recruit, 'nothing is what it seems.'

History has found spies in many different life forms, singer, dancer, politician, scholar, etc. That's the way it should be, as it makes it difficult to tell. However, there is a clue, they are all smart. No offense to Dr. Zhao, but he is not a winner comparing to his peers.

Forty-two year old Zhao obtained a B.S. degree from Zhejiang University in 1996, which is about 3 years too late for a Chinese and extremely rare nowadays after the great expansion of college admission. If that is still not an indicator, Zhao had been working as senior postdoc at three institutions in the US, but yet couldn't land a real job. It's evident that setting aside Zhao may be a good scientist, he absolutely does not have any street smart.

It is not a great time to be a 'returnee (going back to China after studying abroad)' at this time. China's universities and research institute are increasingly picky and suspicious of the quality of those holding foreign degrees, partially because they already have a very competitive talent pool with advanced skills produced inside China. A foreign degree can no longer buy you any advantage. When looking outsider, Chinese universities are eyeing on specific traits such as English speaking capability to appease students who demand English lectures or past notable award recipients as attractive wall decorations. Zhao must present something valuable to get the attention.

The understanding in the biological field is that any results or discoveries in a research project belong to the sponsor. There is no question that Zhao was stealing something he did not own. However, based on media coverage, it is highly possible that Zhao was stealing something he created, or in the least, jointly created.

Professor Anderson told the media that the intellectual property of the compound belong to his college and University of Cincinnati, where Zhao was employed before he came to Milwaukee. It is more than a coincidence that readers should move their eyes away from. For anyone familiar with biological research, the only plausible inference is that Zhao had been working on this compound in Cincinnati, and that he was brought in to continue this research. Not too long ago, Zhao posted a question on an Internet forum asking how to patent a compound. A researcher in a university will never ask these kind of questions, because there is an army of patent lawyers who will make sure the school secure any such discoveries. Again, for anyone familiar with biological research, the only plausible explanation is that Zhao found something on his own, but haven't reported it to the lab. If so, it is highly unethical, unprofessional, greedy while being foolish, and potentially illegal.

The C-25 compound itself is hardly of any value. In fact, you can say that all biological researchers are working on something that is valuable, or can be valuable. It may be valuable for publishing on an academic journal, or seeking grants, but in this early form, it's very difficult to assess its potential.

It seems that, Huajun Zhao attempted to use results not belonging to himself for personal benefits, which is by definition stealing. However, a charge of economic espionage is a stretch.

Commenting on Jiang Bo's case is tricky. First of all, anything related to NASA could be potentially sensitive one way or another. But more so because Jiang was not caught for doing anything illegal. He broke a rule when taking a laptop back to China without notifying his supervisor. However, that had been cleared by NASA that no sensitive information was on that laptop and the case closed. He was arrested for giving inconsistent answers to federal investigators, but that happened after several hours detention and interrogation at the airport, while he was trying to catch an airplane to China, fleeing from the US. He fled in a hurry because he was named in a congressional hearing which was carried by a local newspaper, as a case for NASA's circumvention/violation of federal laws by allowing Chinese nationals to work at NASA as contractors. It was confirmed later that Jiang did not carry any information with him. In short, Jiang is either a good spy who covered everything well, or an careless but innocent young researcher trapped by political fights.

Kung Fu Legends: A Sequel

In the Biadu discussion panel for the disgraced former ideology master Dr. Yi Junqing, who was brought down by an affair with his trainee Dr. Chang Yan, a graduating senior posted a shockingly similar story between her adviser and herself.

The story took place in the Chinese Language Department of the Southeast University in Nanjing. A female student, in the same manner of now famous manifesto of Dr. Chang, chronically detailed her relationship with her school assigned mentor, deputy secretary of local CCP branch, Dr. Liu Zhanzhao.

Dr. Liu almost is the opposite of Dr. Yi. Dr. Yi is the mastermind behind the CCP's policies, while Liu is only an entry level player. Dr. Yi is believed to be one of the most handsome and charisma senior officials in decades, while Liu is depicted as short, bald and overweight. Dr. Yi rides on a stable and loyal fanbase, while Liu is ridiculed by his advisees. Yet, the common share of the two was using their power as the adviser in taking advantage of their female students.

The published story accused Dr. Liu of committing many misconducts as a teacher, including:

  • Inappropriate contacts with multiple female students under his supervision;
  • Passing copies of other professors' final examinations to students, using his administrative power;
  • Having sexual contact with the student;
  • Instructing students on how to compromise their professors for better grades;
  • Tampering with attendance logging equipment;
  • Committing fraud in allocating grants for students in poverty to favor his mistresses;
  • Using students as free laborers by assigning job as course homework in undergraduate classes;
  • Allowing late entering in exam despite being prohibited by rules;

Based on the manuscript, Southeast University had been aware of at least some of these misconducts. At one point, Liu was demoted after an unspecified female student who was not known to the whistleblower registered a claim. Still Liu is kept at a position instructing and supervising undergraduate students.

As in Dr Chang's manuscript, this new sequel also had a few brushes on the academic environment and in general the operating and internal power fights which is amusing to read.

Also as in Dr. Chang's manuscript, the new sequel is accompanies vast amount of text messaging conversations between the two.

Some excerpts:

马文把两份试卷打印了出来,梅林:“我可以带走吗?” 马文:“你抄下来吧,抄完了把这个撕掉。”........ 马文说:“答案可以拿走。”梅林:“嗯,不用抄了?”马文:“别给人看见就行。”........ 那些报考我院的研究生 只要找我的 比开会有用多了........ 马文拨开梅林的腿,梅林:“你得带套,如果我怀孕了,你很麻烦,我也很麻烦。”马文慢吞吞的带上,梅林觉得疼,必然的。努力半天,进不去,在疼痛撕裂她的时候,她想,就这一次,忍着。但始终进不去,梅林觉得手上黏黏的,她一看,惊呼:“血。”........ 梅林:我又不是贫困生 马文:我可以帮你弄........ 马文抱住梅林,关了灯,反锁门,搂紧梅林深深吸气。梅林:“有人来了怎么办啊?”马文:“不会有人过来。”梅林:“我只要大叫一声,你就身败名裂啦。”马文停顿,用更大的劲抱住梅林。
