So China is planning on merging the Cities of Beijing, Tianjin and some parts of the Hubei province in an attempt to build a mega-city. If the plan goes through, the city of Jing-Jin-Ji would have over 100 million residents. One city with a population three times larger then that of Canada.

Megalopolises (megalopoli?) have been around for a long time. They aren't actually aiming to administrate the areas as a single city under a single regional government, but to increase co-operation, reduce differences and such. The US has had a few megalopolises of their own: SANSAN (San Francisco, LA and San Diego), BOSNYWASH (Boston, New York, Washington DC).

By "merging" you mean "arbitrarily declaring them all part of one city", then sure... this has literally no impact on anyone except for cartographers.
Skep: Have you ever wanted to troll a blind dating thing and pretend to be one of those 'I'm not religious, I'm spiritual' people?

Me: I mean... I identify as a Spinozian pantheist... is it really trolling?

Skep: That's not the same thing. You're just autistic. These people are retarded.

Really? I thought they were building a train through each of the cities or something.

That's totally irrelevant, though. The reclassification of the three cities into one was not necessary for the railway to be built (or even important in the least), unless you want to argue that most major US cities are really one giant supercity by virtue of them being connected via rail.

Well, it's official, the entire United States is just one big mega city.

Fixed. Dumb backformation on my part.
