Strange Sign, Surprising Result

Xiamen University students recently made a survey at a cross road near the university campus, a section where a pedestrian walking bridge was built over a busy intersection.

The test was to see how people reacted towards different types of notice board. They designed 3 notice boards with different content,  displaying them in turn for few days, and in between there would be some days with no notice board at all.

 

The results below show how many people still crossed the road, not choosing to use the walking bridge despite the signs:

 

No notice board 69.78%
"Please use walking bridge" 70.02%
"It only takes 9.4 seconds more to use the walking bridge" 60.97%
"You ugly if you cross the road" 41.12%

The wife of the Deputy Director of a local Health and Family Planning Department, Li Yanzhu, went into hospital on 8th Oct. around 5pm, as the heart beat of the baby was irregular. Soon after the mother was given anesthesia by a physician, the baby's heart stopped, and it was stillborn.

The coroner's report has not been prepared but the next morning dozens of people ran into hospital and attacked doctors and nursing staff in the operating theatres.

The Health and Family Planning department oversees the one child policy and millions of babies have been killed under its control.

The baby's father, Deputy Director of Health  and Family Planning, chose to initiate "physical combat" with the  hospital. Chinese bloggers are watching with interest.
