They used to have fake DOT stickers to put on motorcycle helmets, and they
were perfectly legal! There was no law against making your own DOT sticker
and putting it on any helmet you wanted to wear. ... You could wear a French
Beret and it was legal if you had a DOT sticker on it, and you could make up
your own DOT stickers. That's why I hate stupid, unenforceable, liberal
laws. All they do is waste the taxpayers money.

It's not a problem with the law, but problem with enforcers. There
are laws against false advertsments. Who is going to sue helmets
makers, the dead guy? Don't expect the government to do your job,
they are for shows only. The Better Business Bureau is better for
business. The only thing that work is the court, despite appointed
judges. Jury is the only thing that work. So many bad companies and
so little time to sue.

My wife bought me a golf shirt on sale shortly after I got my
gieger counter from eBay (a couple of years ago). For kicks I
measured it and found that it registered on avg a bit higher
than the background levels around our place.
Many washes later, it has returned to background levels.
The level was not high enough to worry about, but was one of
those things that make you go hmmmm... I think the shirt was
made in Korea.

There was a warning a couple of years ago about Chinese rubber.
This had to do with Chinese scooters, the rubbers seem to fall apart
after a year and you can throw the whole thing away.
You want Taiwan.
I had Chinese rubber bands that just fell apart after some weeks.
Bought from a respectable place (Albert Heijn here).
So stay clear of anything that has Chinese rubbers in it.
The cheap 3 dollar 4 some cents Chinese multimeters I bough have also
great lead free soldering, note how the shunt is soldered:
I do no cry easily, but you must have read in the news that Bangkok flooded:
There are a lot of very cheap tool sets around made of steel 10 (if that exists).
Generalisation is a very dangerous thing.
They have good stuff too.
Lots of it.
Inform yourself before you buy, google will tell you how the situation is
for a particular product.
If you did not type the product name and something like 'review' or 'problem'
or 'experience' in google, then you were gambling.
The same goes for any country, or product.
My opinion of my Samsung 3D TV is there as a warning on my site for anybody for
And that is not Chinese.
Sometimes you learn the hard way.
And, for that money you got to accept some things sometimes too,
especially if it can be easily fixed, as with that cheap meter,
