    There`s nothing impossibru about it. All those huge factories, like Foxconn that makes all of Apple`s iBullsh*t have suicide nets installed around the building to keep employees from splattering themselves all over the parking lot.

    0.0022% or 22 out of every 100,000 people. Relatively high compared to most countries, but Greenland`s suicide rate is 5 times higher.

    Do you really trust their counting?
    China`s quite proud of their low crime rate, don`t suppose they might have miscounted a few homicides as suicide, do you? They have a very odd legal system.

    @whodat6484 funny fact: suicide rate at Foxconn is much lower than national average. What people don`t take into account is that Foxconn is a giant, with over 1 million employees. In such a mass of people there always will be cases of suicides. I don`t tell the working conditions are great.

    if you figure out percentage of the population.....that amount is less than 1/2 of 1% of the population. I would say that is a good record

    The worst part about being Chinese is even if you`re a one-in-a-million kind of guy, that means there are 1,344 people EXACTLY like you!
