    They never get it easy in Beijing. One day it's a smog warning, the next day a sandstorm!

    While it's dangerous, it looks kinda cool in the photo.

    I'll agree it looks pretty cool but it isn't very good for them. [​IMG]

    You guys think this shit is cool?! It's fucking horrible! We had a sand storm yesterday from 3 AM to 5 PM!!!!
    FUCKING DUST IS EVERYWHERE! All my consoles are collecting dust [​IMG]. My fucking wii and 360 and all my handhelds! My PC and laptop! I'm really tired of this shit. I have to use like 4 compressed air cans to clean all of 'em [​IMG]

    Here's a couple of pics I took from a different sand storm a couple of months back. It was the worst sandstom ever!

    I took this one very quickly. Dust was getting in my eyes and in my fucking mouth.

    Assuming your eyes and mouth were protected, it would be pretty amusing to watch.

    Yeah, this shit really does suck to live through. It's like pollution, but in your face and fucking your eyes and throat and ears.

    I remember the dust storm we got in sydney a year or so ago. It was great. Sure it was bad for people with asthma but I liked it. I will admit that the first thing I thought of was that it looked like the end of the world. Dunno why but I did.

    That photo is beautiful.

    I didn't know Beijing had sandstorms like this...can't even imagine what it'd be like to go out.

    I'll never get to see this in Canada. We still get snowstorms, though.
