"Made in China" is closer than you think
Saw this article on Digg about how pollution in China is getting worse. As I scanned through some of the comments, this sentence caught my eye: "look around and see if there's at least one object within 10 feet of you made in China." Funny thing about this exercise. If you're reading this, the thing within 10 feet of you that is made in China is probably in your hand (check your mouse).
