Luo Baogen told the Chinese government to get stuffed.

Chinese officials relocated a village of 1000 people to clear the path for a highway in the Zhejiang Province, but Baogen said he wasn’t moving his home until they offered him more money. Apparently, $41,000 or 260,000 yuan wasn’t too tempting an offer.

Hats off to this stalwart. It takes a set to tell the Chinese government no. However it would be difficult to make him disappear since he now lives in the middle of a major thoroughfare.
