The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / Re: How Do I Ask for "Movie Shop" in Chinese?
« Last post by old34 on Today at 11:31:52 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm now head of a movie appreciation club.  I want to show some classics of the Western canon, like "Star Wars" "The Godfather" "Titanic" etc.

Back in Beijing, there are places that will sell copies of movies for about ten RMB apiece.  And, they are definitely good quality.

1.  Does anyone know of any of these places in Suzhou or Shanghai?

2.  If not, can anyone tell me how to ask for it in Chinese?  I am guessing a big city like Shanghai must have some.


DVD. that's all you need to say.


In Suzhou if you go to Shiquan Jie, look for Yang Yang's Dumpling Restaurant. There's a small alley almost directly across the street and the first or second door on your left has a small DVD shop. Not much selection. If you keep walking west from Yang Yang's when you get to the next main intersection. (a) turn the corner to the right and just on the other side of the canal is Rock Station DVD shop. Best DVD selection of any DVD shop I've ever seen in China. highly recommended by Raoul himself when he was around.


Or turn left at that intersection and walk about ½ a mile until you see Tom's Bar. The guy who owned Rock Station opened another branch next door to Tom's (and may have moved the original to there) If either or both are still around, they'll certainly have all the classics. Also many films from other countries. Rock Station not only had the best selection ever, but it was also the best organized. Separate sections for genres and then all the DVDs sorted alphabetically.

I thought the replies by these posters were amusing, odd, and left of center: The Local Dialect, Con Ate Dog, Stil: Your comment through me off completely. And I thought I was crazy. Decurso: Rare condition...ha ha

My reason for coming to China. I love Asian pussy, but I am not going to fall in love ever again. But I do hope to meet a compatible partner. Some men get off on screwing every vagina possible. You need a big wallet for that, which leads me to state, my second main reason is teaching and making some extra money. I think when I was younger I should have been a sex instructor, or a porn film actor. According to a few womens comments of size, you know what I mean? You want to see a picture  ahahahahah

No I won't fall in love ever again.

But, my son whom lives in Australia is my financial priority. I would like to see him have a robust informed education. And he is such a good sculptor of pottery, I couldn't believe what I saw when he made a clay sculpture of an owl. And he made it when he was in fourth grade. Prodigious.

On a formal note. Yes I'm a formal English teacher and would like a break from Australia. I may possibly get back in to Kung Fu too, if I have time. It's such a great way of staying fit, focused and best of all excellent for self-defence. My reasons! :)

China to Permit Lab Poised to Study World's Most Dangerous Pathogens

Maximum-security biolab is part of a plan to build more of these facilities across the country

A laboratory in Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world’s most dangerous pathogens. The move is part of a plan to build between five and seven biosafety level-4 (BSL-4) labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025, and has generated much excitement, as well as some concerns.

Some scientists outside China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations. But Chinese microbiologists are celebrating their entrance to the elite cadre empowered to wrestle with the world’s greatest biological threats.

“It will offer more opportunities for Chinese researchers, and our contribution on the BSL‑4-level pathogens will benefit the world,” says George Gao, director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Key Laboratory of Pathogenic Microbiology and Immunology in Beijing. There are already two BSL-4 labs in Taiwan, but the National Bio-safety Laboratory, Wuhan, would be the first on the Chinese mainland....



Game over, man. Game over. All hail shambling, bleeding, vomiting zompocalypse!

The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / What Police Clearance Is Needed for Visa in Suzhou?
« Last post by Ivyman on Yesterday at 05:24:47 AM »
Hi Everyone,

My workplace says the visa rules changed this 2017 year for Suzhou.

That, to apply for a working visa, I'd need an original college diploma and a US state, not local, police clearance.

1.  Are both counts true?

2.  How would I get a local police clearance from the State of California?

50 Shades of Grey, By Pam Ayres

The missus bought a Paperback,
down Shepton Mallet way,
I had a look inside her bag;…
T’was “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
Well I just left her to it,
And at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread.
In her left hand she held a rope;
And in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.
Well fifty years or so ago;
I might have had a peek;
But Mabel hasn’t weathered well;
She’s eighty four next week!!
Watching Mabel bump and grind;
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse;
She toppled off her Zimmer!
She struggled back upon her feet;
A couple minutes later;
She put her teeth back in and said
“I am a dominator!!”
Now if you knew our Mabel,
You’d see just why I spluttered,
I’d spent two months in traction
For the last complaint I’d uttered.
She stood there nude and naked
Bent forward just a bit
I went to hold her, sensual like
and stood on her left tit!
Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out;
My God what had I done!
She moaned and groaned then shouted out:
“Step on the other one!!”
Well readers, I can tell no more;
Of what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey!!
