      • Epitomizer

        You misspelled douche

        • https://www.facebook.com/chadd.allen.3 Chadd Allen

          And you didn't use proper punctuation.

          • Epitomizer

            Holy Shit. Good call. I almost fucked up my whole internet comment career. Thanks man, you saved the day.

    • EDUB

      Almost funny…


      • kidn

        it would have been funny had he used the correct word?

  • Julio_Fungoolio

    At least all of your stuff is always in the same room with you.

    • isaac

      however, i would still manage to lose my phone, keys, wallet, etc….

    • White Devil

      and within reach

  • MOAR

    House parties must suck.

  • Blah

  • John

    • Poop Bucket


  • Shootdarn

    Wow, these people are pack rats…

    • Tankus

      Pack rats? They barely have ANYTHING! All their belongings fit in one room as big as my closet!


      • Dude

        Perhaps you meant packed rats?

  • NIXem

    as Biggie said " thinkin back on my one room shack"

  • guest

    Gives new meaning to walking in on your parents.

      Seriously, you’d think there would be less of the fuckers. I guess sex will find a way.

  • sfb101

    Their a lot messier than me…
    Go clean your room!

    • C.Ro

      Go learn some grammar!

    • Spelling Police

      *they're – a contraction of "they are." Stay in school.

      • Yeahhh

        You've worn out your welcome.

    • sfb101

      You're right I screwed the pooch on this one.
      I need some grammar crackers…

  • Epitomizer

    Me No Rikey

    • twd22285

      I don't care if this is offensive..I think it's hirrarios!

      • McBeastie666

        You own more than one Policy Academy movie don't you?

    • Wing chong chi

      Im offended

  • the390

    Like my college dorm room

    • http://www.facebook.com/marcjwrzphoto marcjwrz

      actually…11.60 a square foot does equal out to housing costs at most American Colleges haha…

  • BigDave

    I don't know what they do with the rag and the bucket.

  • Guest

    It's like prison…

    • Steve-O

      prison cells are bigger than that…

  • KCCO

    Wow, those are poor representations of HK. I emigrated from HK in 97; it's nowhere near that condition.

    • thom

      I think more and more mainlanders are moving there for economic opportunity. Thus there are even more poor people than before. Their original home back in mainland china was even worse, so this is their first step to improving their life.

    • Wino

      A lot can change in 16 years.

      • KCCO

        Haha buddy…You have no idea how advance HK is with a comment like that. You'll be lucky to get a job with your college degree with how strong the competition is available. I'm not one to put my birth country higher than the rest of the world; but it's just facts.

        • thom

          I have been to HK, and I loved it.
          But that is the reality in every major Chinese city. Poor villagers are going to the main cities for economic activity. This will make for areas of extreme poverty.

  • alex

    And these people keep having children like they're going out of style. If you're living in a shithole like this, maybe you should rethink the whole starting a family thing.

    • Aaa

      You can't really be that uneducated, can you? Please say this is sarcasm…

      • http://www.facebook.com/brent.mallmann Brent Mallmann

        I think it's a fair remark. If your living conditions are unfit to raise and maintain a family, and overpopulation so rampant, it's only responsible to be cautious about procreation.

    • dedubs

      How do you know that "these people" keep having children like they're going out of style. Most of the massive growth in childbirth in China is in rural areas.

    • Side Show

      They're limited to one child per family unless they're part of a national minority. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?stor

      • j55

        thats China. you are allow to have as many children as you want in Hong Kong.

  • Guest

    I'be been to Hong Kong. Other than the harbor area, it is a complete and utter shit hole. Just a nasty place. Like NYC in the 80s.

    • Bob

      I love how tourist like you who have only been to HK maybe 2 days and talk like you know every corner of the city. Get yourself educated first mate.

    • Ray

      You're just foolish for saying that. I've been to Hong Kong several times, before the handover and afterwards, and while there are dirty areas, like any great city, it is vibrant and exciting, rivaling any city in the world in that regard. And I also don't see it to be similar to NYC was in the 80's

      • Sheesh

        Jesus Christ Ray, have you ever heard of a period.

  • Jonathan

    Is no one else going to ask what the hell a "toilet cubicle" is?

    • Jonathan

      I assume it is the same as a bathroom stall. I guess the term "toilet cubicle" is a west coast thing. I have never heard it before.

      • Duber

        Its a UK thing. Most of the content on here is just copy and pasted from another source. I am not trying to be "that guy". Just stating facts.

        • Yeahhh

          Well you are "that guy", so shut up.

        • Jonathan

          I thought you had to be named Jonathan to reply to this thread.

  • Penasco

    And the Mexicans were all like, "Child, please"

  • Nick

    Why are they all home? Get back to making my toys!

    • Jen

      and ipads! slackers.

      • Biff

        Idiots who don't know the difference between China and Hong Kong!

  • Leigh

    #3 so basically you want the smallest space with the tallest ceilings from the looks of this place.

    • TrueStory

      It's the fisheye camera lens.

  • blue_bronco

    Bob wants us "rich people" to feel bad

  • usually-censored

    Unless you're dating Jennifer Lawrence or a COTW, this pretty much means you don't ask your girlfriend to move in with you.

    • Kris

      COTW… Cock Of The Walk???

  • yermon

    thats same shit just about everywhere in china

    • KCCO in HK

      …except that it's not really China.

  • LCR915

    I stayed in one of these flats when I visited Hong Kong in 2005. It gave me an appreciation for my 200 sq ft apartment.
