Do you know how many people try to sell their kids a year.

Question marks are your friend. Embrace them. Just sayin'.

OT: Wait a minute, doesn't China still have that law forbidding families from having more than one kid? If so, are we sure they're being arrested for selling the kids rather than having more children than is legal? It's a horrible thing to do either way, I guess I just have a morbid curiosity about this.

You need to be a teenager to do that

Wait, what were they sold to?

Cheap adoption. Adoption costs money (and not just in China). Most likely the child was sold off to a lower class family that couldn't produce their own children.

aaaah, earth sucks, im going home.

but for gods sake, selling their kids! for videogames!

Well, children are treated somewhat as property in the western world, and if you want to get rid of them why not for profit?
The question is who would buy children for that amount of money in china, it's not like they are difficult to produce.

Am I the only one who doesn't see anything wrong with this? It's simple logic
You need money to keep playing games
You and your wife can make something that is worth money
Make thing and sell it
When in need of more money make another and sell it
It's a simple financial problem with a simple solution.

You know, I should be surprised, but I'm not. That saddens me.

Arent you only supposed to have one kid in china anyways ? not saying this is right ....... but i think if the chinease govt are going to take kids away if you have more than 1 , you should have some form of compensation

Look above where I quoted somonels - same thing goes to you. Can't even believe the posts I am seeing.. .. seriously.

Let me explain the part you probably took offense at with somonels post "The question is who would buy children for that amount of money in china, it's not like they are difficult to produce.". He did make a good point, there is a large supply so the cost should be low (I don't know the demand unfortunately). As far as I know I said nothing offensive, just stated simple economics.

I can only hope that, 15-20 years from now, those kids become warriors and hunt down their parents like reverse batman.

Especially the girl. $500? WTF?

Wow... how awful. Its even worse how the parents didn't even care about their children, and how they were not even going to raise them. And selling them for a gaming habit...

Infernai:
Ok, seriously people: There's this little thing called adoption...

Adopt more kids
Sell those kids
Infinite profit as long as you don't get caught
OT: Who the hell did they sell them to?

I must admit, this does sound intriguing.

Glass Joe the Champ:
If they like videogames that much, I have a good punishment for them:

Stay in prison until they beat I Wanna Be the Guy on Impossible!

add without dieing once and having to beat it 3 times in a row at same time or just cut off there fingers so they cant play anymore

OT: These people are horrible people and worthless pieces of rotting meat and I would never want to be around or know them

i can't live on this planet anymore

Seriously, why? Why do something like this?

Buccura:

Do you really want to know? Who do you think the sort of people are who buy children? Modern day slavers? Possibly the child porn industry?

You don't get arrested in China for having more than one kid. At worst you get a fine and you'll probably lose your job.

Well...think of it this way; if you're willing to sell your kids 4 realz, you weren't parent material to begin with.

$4,600? Damn--that's a lot of video games.

Well, time to go sell my kids.

*Waits in anticipation for people to jump on this and start preaching about how games are the root of all evil* :D

Proof that some people simply need to die.

simple response is....

WHAT THE HELL MAN!!!

seriously things like this push gamers (parents)back 5 years. this is why i only play free mmos.

I think that even atheists can agree with me that those parents are going to burn in Hell. Selling another human being is just unforgivable. Especially when it's your own child!

What? ...I ... Just... WHAT?! There are so many problems here, many of them quite insignificant in comparison to the big big issue, but at the risk of sounding like I need to reexamine my priorities, I'll list them anyway. (For the record, I am appalled that they'd sell children for video gaming to begin with, but you guys have already expressed the outrage for me.)

First of all, isn't China still under the 1 child per family law? Second, why didn't the girl go for much higher? Girls are rare in China these days due to point 1 and families are importing brides from out of the country. (Not saying babies should get married, but I was expecting girls to get a bit more respect at least.) Third, that much money, and they're spending it on gaming in Internet Cafes? Can't afford a game console, TV, and library of games?

Hooray! I have two more people I can add to my "Disgraces to Humanity" list.
Congratulations, You two have just won an all expenses paid trip straight to hell!

Wait, I thought China had a child limit on families due to overpopulation. How can these idiots have 3?

vansau:
Stating that you didn't know it was illegal to sell your child is pretty ludicrous.

This is China, however. So I'm not entirely sure. I mean, a lot of people just get rid of their first born there if it isn't a boy, so...

ObsessiveSketch:

They probably didn't have all of them at the same time. They probably got rid of them as they were born.

thiosk:
Nice work, kids! GENIUS.

Says something about asian culture when a baby girl goes for less than 1/9 the price of a baby boy.

Anyone who opines that the west is morally bankrupt just saw their investments in asian culture vanish before their eyes.

Theres awful people everywhere

No, I think the real issue is that any of the kids were worth money to someone.

im not surprised. to be frank, humans are the plague of the planet.

>.> Pfft pointless outrage, you all oversight something interesting, in China overpopulation is so common that it likely is very close to legal to sell your children, theres the whole "just leave them in the forest for the wolves" thing, but generally you have to look at it the same way north america deals with cats and dogs, they are just too many no matter how much you say you love them. As such these two probably did their child pretty damn good thing because if they were more interested in games at least the childs got some slave labour, likely more food then it would have gotten from those two and at 4500$ they could actually take care of themself unlike the what 1billion other chineese who are dieing in factories and such everywhere? Not to mention your reading news "Sold them for gaming" is of course out of context of something. Nubs, eat some troll.

The kid was stupid. This isn't. It's just evil.

Viewtiful Dan:
There really is nothing else to say but just wow. Why would they have kids when they are under 21 anyway?

Exactly

You need to consider, a person born and raised in China (within a developed city) is intellectually superior to any one here; however they lack common sense and so in this light their mental age is usually -5 years that of their physical. A lot of Chinese don't know about the birds and the bees until they reach university. We have a great deal of children in the western world who are already sexually curious by the age of 12!

Of course, this is a terrible act x3! However, is it any different from a surrogate mother offering to birth a child for two strangers (more often that not with money thrown into the equation)?

China has video games
The western world has meth

I know which one I'd rather my parents were addicted to

This might sums up what I wanna say:

Seems like an entirely rational and logical conclusion to me.
You don't want to raise your children, but you want to play games, so sell the children to buy games.
You know, except for the selling your kids to play games part.

NOOoooooooo, games aren't addictive, not at all...

*headdesks at the sheer stupidity of the situation*
