>Alongside food and fire crackers, Chinese are adding a new item to their lunar New Year shopping: Adult diapers. Sales have soared ahead of the holiday as travelers prepare for long trips home aboard trains so crowded that even the toilets are jammed with people, newspapers said Tuesday.
Am I reading this correctly? There are so many people jammed into the train that no one can use the toilets on the journey? So instead of making the train companies adhere to rules about safe passenger capacities, people just buy adult diapers in order to deal with the non-working toilets? Crowds and no toilets…sounds like a little bit of hell to me.
