Not bad at all.

I can't wait for the comments of a certain China basher
Human lives mean little when those in the WEST see a bigger gain through war

A lot of hype about very small changes to life.
I see not one new "invention", though. Surely high-speed trains have been around for three times as long in thee West as they have in China? So how can China claim it has "invented" them???

The train in this picture was made by CAF in Spain. Turkey operates Spanish-made high-speed trains. What has CHina to do with it?

China is the world's top maker of drones. There are many competitors as drones can be made by many producers in many countries, yet a Shenzhen-based plant has wrested the top place and has a virtual monopoly in the global market. However, drones were not invented in China.

I comment not to bash but to set the record right. There are no Chinese "inventions" among the things shown. There are some novel applications of existing technologies - yes.
