What if China and Japan's recent tensions escapated to a war?

Relations between China and Japan normally aren't the best, as I'm sure you're aware and recent territorial disputes haven't exactly helped matters. But what would be the global economic impact if the dispute over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands were to turn into a full-blown war?

I was recently sent an interesting video on this very topic. It's quite a cleverly made short film that explain the many interconnected issues involved. Worth a watch...

Funny Chinese Person alert!

His name is Joe Wong and he's very funny. Check out the two videos below.

The first is a joke-packed monologue at an American gala dinner and is notable as much for the funny gags as for the slightly suspicious reactions of some in the audience.

The second is a shorter appearance on the 'Ellen' chat show. Both are very amusing. See what you think.
