An earthquake hit Tangshan early
Sunday morning at 3:32am. There are reports
that in the urban centre area the beds and water bottles
on water dispensers wobbled.
Quake centre Tangshan,
150 km from Beijing
The tremor was registered with a weak magnitude 3.3, but
what's noteworthy is the timing when the quake occurred.
37 years plus 3 months plus 1 day ago at 3:42am in
1976, a 7.6 Richter Scale quack buried the most of the urban
Tangshan under rubble, along with quarter a million lives.
On September 9, a little more than a month after the quake,
the founding father of the independent modern China,
Chairman Mao, passed away.
On October 6, a little less than a month after Mao's death,
his wife and trusted political assistants were arrested and
eventually sentenced to death or life imprisonment in a coup
masterminded by Deng Xiaoping and executed by a dummy piggish
figurehead Hua Guofeng.
37 years later after the coup in 2013, China once again lost
its full independence in politics and economy under
an administration heavily influenced by Deng Xiaoping's
son and executed by a dummy piggish figurehead Xi
