Try It

Google CN opens closed.

Aka Eyes Wide Shut.

So Google China is in full swing. Except you can't find blogs or chat stuff or anything the wrinkled old assholes in Beijing are afraid of. And if you search for the wrong stuff you get swished away to government pages condemning those evil civil rights movements.



But aside from Reporters sans frontières there's only about six billion people who find the whole thing revolting, so that's cool.

If you try to reach Google CN from some places outside CN so you can see how slimy they are you can get this instead.

As if they don't want anyone to see what they're doing.

Which is OK by me as long as you can use Google's language tools to translate 'ASSHOLE' and 'SELLOUT' into Chinese characters and search with that and come up with Jerry Yang, Sergei Brin, and Larry Page.
