Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping’s emergence from a two-week absence without any official explanation highlights the uncertainty caused by the opaque way in which the world’s second-biggest economy changes leaders.

Where in the world was Xi Jinping?
Chinese president-in-waiting Xi Jinping has been rushed to a hotpot restaurant, after being found just barely alive following a five-day gaming bender.
The man tipped to become the second most powerful in the world in October had not been seen in public since sitting down last Wednesday to “type a few emails.”
After opening up several tabs and clicking on links, a distracted Xi was soon embroiled in a protracted flame war with an anonymous Japanese forum user who was clearly in the wrong.
That would have been that, say aides, had Xi not then become obsessed with the idea of playing epic role -playing game Skyrim to 100 percent completion before the start of the 18th Party Congress in mid-October.
“Just a few more hours,” Xi allegedly promised aides, before passing out in an internet café while attempting to return the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory, after a 96-hour online session fueled only by ice tea and noodle flavoring sachets.
Witnesses say it was several hours before staff realized the vice-president was comatose.
The incident recalls the glory days of Mao Zedong, when the Great Helmsman would often disappear for months on end, indulging his passion for sleeping, nut-scratching and young PLA dancing troupes.
Xi is expected to return to work and carry on as if nothing had happened this Friday.

Look up the story on the trade deal just signed between China and Japan. Historical would be an understatement.
The Japan-Chinese protests are a cover for what is really going on in Asia. Japan and China are now 1.
