The Top Ten
In fear that people will change its history, China banned time travel - yatharthb
So any research on this field, even a mere speculation is banned too? What's the use of banning it anyway, there is no explainable physical law which can help us in going into the past. We only can go into the future, not vice-versa. - Kiteretsunu
That makes no sense, they should keep working on it so they can earn a lot of money! - NerdyPweeps
Time travel isn't real though. - RedrocmV 6 Comments
It's not only ketchup alone, anything that has a tiniest bit relation to the English speaking world is banned there. Like many of the English words (like e-mail, fast food, blog, etc. ) used internationally are banned there, as it can endanger the French language (they say that they have found the French equivalent for these words, they don't need the English words to describe these things) - Kiteretsunu
The ban was originally to preserve the French cuisine, Ketchup is still easily available in France - yatharthb
I wasn't aware of this one, and this is weird, because they are easy to find, no matter where..
Now I know the difference between Chine and Japan. Chine doesn't play gaming consoles but Japan does. - AeropostaleWolf
I know right. When China banned consoles from 2000, to 2014, they were part of the PC Master race. I think we should all know PC gaming beats the console gaming race.
China has lifted the ban in 2014. I think they're making a huge mistake & they're about to have a console war.
China banned Consoles because they make people lazy - yatharthb

I've been to Malaysia, and there were a number of fellow Brits on the plane wearing yellow. And one wearing a SpongeBob SquarePants onesie. I'd hate to think what happened to them. - PositronWildhawk

Voted to say: this is just the "boys first" sexist ideology in the past and is more significant under the one child policy. Now with two child policy this retarded ideology is dying fast, and we didn't ban baby girls at all. Just the influence of a retarded thought. - MChkflaguard_Yt

I have a friend from Singapore and he told me people apparently played too many pranks involving gum and...I guess I'm not welcome because I love pranking. He also told me prank calls are illegal there. Damn, this is one strict government. - AlphaQ
They banned it because they want to keep the country REALLY clean.

Anyways. Why? Why ban something so good? It's harmless and doesn't kill people. - AlphaQ
