I love my national identity and this is not fraud, nor is it a joke.

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2011-03/02/content_12103351.htm

My grandfather told me today and I thought he was kidding. As it turns, Hong Kong has a lot more money than everyone expected that they're giving away $6000 Hong Kong Dollars to every Permanent Hong Kong Citizen. That's equivalent to $771.79USD or £472.91GBP.

I'm expecting the lumpsum any week.

I thought I'd just make a thread about it because it's so awesome.

I love this. Everything about this is awesome.

They have more money than expected. That sentence alone is awesome, just listen to it.
More money than expected.

And they give it all their citizens! That's fantastic.

I wasn't talking about your grammar. [or my bad grammar in this case ]
I was just saying how awesome it is that they have "more money than expected". It's such an awesome line.

I highly doubt that money makes up for the fact that the people who receive it are still living in Hong Kong

I kid, I'm just jealous

It's a good way to stimulate the economy actually. It's a smart move.

Actually, if they really wanted to stimulate the economy they'd target it at the obligate spenders rather than just giving money to everyone; but this is a great PR coup.

I guess so. But it is a way of stimulating the economy. The PR thing would be hilarious. "Come rive in Hong Kong! Free dollah! Happy ending!".

Yeh but they have that in Hong Kong, we've got nothing on them

I actually find it a little weird, that these two theist groups believe in the same thing (Muslims absolutely MUST believe in Christianity and Judaism) and yet continue to despise each other.

Well at least we atheists get along fine and dandy.

Also, I would definitely use that $6000 for some nice new equipment. (Desperate attempt not to start a religious debate)

£472.91? Pffft... I earn that a month working part-time.

I once got a £122.07 tax-rebate from the Government for fluffing up my taxes when I was 17. I spent that shit on FIB ticket
