Just wondering if anyone could read this?
Uh, oh. Here we go....
Seriously, that doesn't look Chinese to me. But then again, I don't even recognise Arial when I see it.
Can't read chinese, but I can read Chav.......my guess is that they are all tags
"Man who goes to bed with itchy bottom, wake up with smelly finger"

Its upside down.
It's Chinese for:
lol, I went to see Aladdin at the old vic at christmas, and they put the words to a song down in chinese, and some kid yelled that out .
Don't they write top to bottom not left to right?
They used to, though now they seem to be copying the western style of left to right going down the page.
Quite possibly top to bottom, right to left if memory serves.
It wasnt me i promise
It looks like an adress to me though, so prolly doesnt mean anything interesting. Not getting it as a tattoo are you? Its deffo Mandarin though, not "Chinese"
No, I'm not getting it as an address! If it's an address that would be a good sign, as it would be an address I'd like to find out !
I was trained by the Shaolin Master of Itcheenee.
That states clearly:
"Is it in yet?"
I reckon its deffo an adress, but my Mandarin is very rusty. I dont think there is an english translation. Most Chinese businesses have a PO Box that can be translated internationally but your avarage house or business wouldnt have one of these so translating is a problem.
Its deffo upside down and Mandarin though
THAT ... is not chinese...its mandarin ... it looks like a warning of some kind
Funny, last time I checked, mandarin is aka modern standard chinese, and is the official language of china :\.
Doesn't sound to good
Chinese and madarin is one and the same.
Mandarin is simiply a speaking form.
The written form has 2 version
Simplfied (Thanks to Chairman mau for butchering the elegant form of...)
The one there is Traditional Written Chinese, no it isn't upside down, or say ORLY? My reading and writing of Chinese has literally gone down the toilet so I can't tell you what it says. It does look like one of those 4 word sayings thou. Chinese language has a lot of these 4 word mini poem/sayings where sometimes has a back story to it and it can mean a hell of a lot with just 4 words. Its a language where simple reading of the words at face value doesn't cut it.
That too, it could say "EXIT"
kidding, it doesn't say EXIT.
You got most of your stuff right though that Chinese writing is indeed upside down. It is also in simplified Chinese although whoever wrote that has horrible handwriting
If I am correct, that shot is taken from an parcel sent via airmail or something, first two words say "Airport", the last two words, I can hardly make out though the third word looks like "approx.". Taking a rough guess, I'd say "Airport Destination".
Separate names with a comma.
