Now you can just rent one and if you do like the uneducated just throw it into the river when your ...

Yeah, three strike you're out... or in this case three bikes you're out.  My first bike here was similar to the one I had back in the States, a mid-range Giant mountain bike (pretty decent actually)... the next was a cheaper no-name brand... and last was a cheaper yet no-name brand... the flippin' chain and lock cost about as much as the bike.  During the fifty years I lived in the States, never had anything stolen.  I remember a time when you could leave your bike on the porch overnight, car unlocked, house unlocked... of course that was a different time and era... you couldn't do that today (in most areas).  Yeah, I've seen those rental bikes in our town... too bad people are too lazy and inconsiderate to return them.

Responsible and considerate social behaviour is taking a long time for Chinese people to develop. Their history has taught them to take what they can, when they can. Public places are not their concern. So they will steal toilet paper. Slowly and in time, they will learn better behaviour and their example will be followed by future children.... but social change is very slow.

Here is another "obsolete concept" for you to implement/remember: when you board the U.S.-bound airplane at Pudong Airport, make sure before you pass through immigration that you hae enough toilet paper to take with you to the U.S.A. In the U.S.A. you will not find toilet paper to steal so easily.
