You're only talking 1000 pounds. That's a couple people. I've seen many apartments jammed with people, here in Winnipeg mind you. Think about some kids partying with there friends. Might have 30 people in one tiny apart. All sitting on the couch or in a big group.
Yes China has high standards:

I know 1000 lbs is "a couple of people" in Winnipeg but here in Regina it is more like 5-8 people!
