The Card Game Blew Up

“Beijing – Four people died in northeast China after a dispute over a game of cards ended in bloodshed when one of the players returned with a hand grenade which later exploded, state media said Saturday.

The four were playing cards on Wednesday in Meihekou city in Jilin province when a quarrel broke out, said the Beijing Times. One of the group later returned with a hand grenade and it went off during a scuffle.

Three people died on the spot while the fourth died in hospital the next day, it said. Two passers-by were also slightly injured by the blast.”

Who needs a gun when you have a couple of grenades lying around the house.

    The Chinese are famous for their hacking deaths as well. Practically every day we were in HK, I read in the newspaper of some guy hacking up his wife or some weirdo guy hacking up a bunch of people… crazy…

    Is it safe to guess the Palestinians don’t play cards much? In following the various work accidents, I don’t notice the casualties coming in sets of four.
