He became one with the earth: Mudslide buries feng shui master

Ironically, he was right. It was a good place for burials.

What a perfect spot to be buried… alive: Feng shui master engulfed by mudslide

A feng shui master was buried alive by a mudslide moments after declaring a cemetery plot ideal for a client.

Zheng Guoqiang, a high-profile expert in the art, had been asked to find some ‘good land’ for De Meng to be laid to rest after his recent death.

However, the 55-year-old, described as the ‘go-to’ person for celebrities, was engulfed by the slide along with seven others.

Only one person survived the mudslide. The article notes that just before, he remarked how the vibrations and location were perfect for a burial. Oh dear.

There were huge rainstorms in the area last week, which likely contributed to the mudslide. This is an odd coincident.

Feng Shui is a mystical Chinese practice of harmonizing human existance with the environment. I guess in this case, the environment did harmonize with the humans.

    I am a bit sceptical on the truth of this story. If you follow the news back to it’s source, you’ll find out that it is coming from TomoNews, which is website of a Taiwanese animation studio:

    “Each day, TomoNews will publish up to 20 animated news stories, covering US and world events. These stories will tackle breaking news, combining animation with video footage to help viewers visualize and quickly understand headline events as they unfold. In addition, TomoNews will animate the most talked-about WTF stories on the internet. The craziest, weirdest, most unexpected stories will get an additional twist with our animations and snarky personality. And finally, TomoNews will continue animating satire, bringing to viewers the unique brand of humor for which the Taiwanese Animators are known.”

    TomoNews has put a video on YouTube on this on April 1st (!?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAgNqNIs8To

    But it could still be true. On a website which looks like it belongs to the Feng Shui expert there is a short message (dated April 2nd), which reads (Google translated): “Zheng Guoqiang teacher accident tragic death, mourn Zheng, all the way! A memorial service will be held later in Shenzhen, until further notice” link: http://www.chinafengshui.net/show.asp?id=545
