Spotted on Weibo: Everybody’s Doing the Split

Two days ago, a photograph of a girl wearing a white vest and ballet slippers and doing a 45-degree split in her dorm room went viral on the Chinese Internet. It led to what Sina entertainment called an online “battle between beauties.” {{Chn}}[[Chn]]美女争相挑战[[Chn]] Some of the photos feature young women eating lunch or talking on their cell phones while doing the splits. 

To those dear readers contemplating participation in this battle: We should warn you that splits can be painful for the untrained. Indeed, our favorites have to be the last two images in this series. Scroll down and you’ll see why. 

Ouch. Via Weibo

    It’s fascinating to see the insides of so many dorm rooms. I’d almost forgotten that China is the Land of Perpetual Laundry, since no one uses wasteful electric dryers.
