最新》比誰錢多! 大陸土豪比賽火燒人民幣

傻眼! 陸土豪比錢多 竟火燒鈔票#發發編:不要就把錢給我啊~東森新聞 報導#土豪 #人民幣

For those of you who are not well versed in the way of the mythical Chinese characters, well… I actually don’t think there is a need for me to translate what’s really happening here.

Basically, a bunch of idiots from Anhui, China, are burning their money as if they are in a competition to show off their wealth(Case in point, they actually are). With a 100 Yuan note in each of their hands, two of men set the notes ablaze.

Granted, they have been drinking as part of a celebration because one of the two men just built himself a new house—and we all know that alcohol makes us do stupid things at times.

However, that’s still no excuse for burning money. Oh, please, they don’t even sound that drunk to me!

And the best part, is perhaps the fact that the video was taken and uploaded by one of their friends. There’s nothing quite like unintentional damage, huh? The video has been circulating around ever since, and netizens were enraged by their actions.

In other words, it didn’t take long before the authorities caught wind of the video. The two men were subsequently apprehended and fined RMB1000(Approx S$210) for their display of stupidity.

According to the laws in China, a person can be fined up to RMB10,000 for deliberately damaging bank notes.


They were also given a warning, if that actually means anything.

As usual, let’s look at what some netizens have to say:

“Don’t burn the money now! I’m sure someone will burn them for you guys after you die!”

(Nice one. I had a good laugh at this one! Though, I’m not sure if I would even burn them any paper money if I’m related to them)

“The money might be yours, but do think the starving children in the rural parts China! If you really think that you have that much money, donate them to help the children! People will respect you instead of seeing you as an uncultured idiot!”

(Precisely, but I doubt they have the mental capacity to understand something like this)

Just so you know, it is illegal to burn your money in Singapore too(or anywhere else, for that matter)

Anyway, I’m pretty sure you’ll be fine as long as you don’t commit acts as such!
