Last night I took the gf out to dinner. 4 dishes of really good food...I was so stuffed I could hardly walk afterwards..total price was 32 Yuan...22 hours of work a week, all classes end by 15.20, no rent, beautiful scenery, ordering books from Amazon.cn is faster and way cheaper than Amazon.com....TIFC indeed...a few strange habits can't really spoil the big picture...spitting goobers..hah! Try encountering a bunch of addled Swedes with their gobs full of chewing tobacco, then you will see goobers...No indoor heating...nothing a good, warm set of thermo-underwear won't solve...bought groceries at the farmers market, two huge bags of veggies, fruit, tofu, rice and meat cost me around 50 Yuan, don't even want to try to think of the small fortune it would have cost me in Denmark...China has, all in all, way too many good things for a few insignificant bothersome habits to deserve any notice... agagagagag agagagagag agagagagag

I don't want to get too off topic, but I LOVE my 4th tier tiny boonies of a town.  akakakakak

Seriously, I do love this city with all it's burgerless, staring and pointing, kids going poo right next to where you are eating, and goobers everywhere. Love, love, love. (But to love doesn't mean I think everything is perfect, that is just silly.)

^ Your city must be a bit cleaner than mine. I'd almost not believe my eyes if I looked around anywhere and didn't find a goober, or at least a dried up one.

Your TIFC is a good example of one that wouldn't have bothered me at all.

Ben-Dan, I live in Brisbane Australia. agagagagag I was just having a joke. bfbfbfbfbf ahahahahah

TIFC indeed.

Girls in China wear short shorts all the time, even in winter. Except now the wear them over their longjohns/hose/stockings/whatever. Now by itself, that is not a TIFC momment, but yesterday was. I saw a girl's very short shorts and they were down filled (poofy and puffy) And black leatards (sp?) beneath them

First thing I thought?  Indeed, TIFC

I'll admit that I've personally spit on the street a few times, and I'm in the class-act country of Murrica. I know it varies wildly from place to place, but if you see people do it, in, say, a second-tier city in central China, have some of those people been female? Not, of course, that I'm trying to find out if I can loog freely or anything . . .  ;)

Come and join your sisters in China! Here you can:

1. spend 10 minutes in the bathroom, when you get up in the mornng, tuning up for the day by producing racking coughs that will clear her lungs of phlegm

2. walk down the street and goob left or right with complete freedom. The more socially conscious will aim in the general direction of the gutter

3. in those restaurants where cigarettes are extinguished on the floor, along with any any bones from meat or fish, expectoration is almost mandatory

There is only one sight more spectacular than a vivid orange sunset in China and that is a beautiful girl,immaculately dressed, standing at a bus stop and picking her nose.

Can't remember if I've mentioned this before,but it makes me smile when I think about a similar situation here in Oz. Same manner of dress and very attractive Chinese lass sitting at the meal table at the Casino picking her nose and wiping it on the serviette. I must admit though that she did in fact put her free hand over her nose in a similar manner to the way in which the mouth is covered by some when they pick their teeth. aoaoaoaoao ahahahahah You should have seen the look on the face of the waitress when she had to pick up the used serviettes. It also made the (previously admiring) males do a rethink as well. ahahahahah bfbfbfbfbf

How do you know who's female and who's male here?  I mean, I guess people like Granny are female, and I guess the Duke is male.  But what's with these little icons that look like an attempt to depict an erect penis or a set of drooping balls?

And why the hell is gender relevant to the identity of the poseur (sp?) anyway?

Here's an easy way, blue symbol boy, pink symbol girl.
Now if it was only as easy to tell some of the Chinese apart with the girls having boys haircuts and holding hands all the time  bibibibibi

I guess it doesn't matter all that much, but sometimes you want to refer to someone as a he/she and be able to do it accurately. It also helps when talking about relationships to have a bit of context.

Ah the memories.  Several of us crashed at a friend's house after a looooong day partying once.  Early in the morning, a smoking hot Chinese girl in the group stepped out onto the balcony to do her morning phlegm spewing.  An American friend who had been in China a lot longer commented something along the lines of, "No matter how beautiful a Chinese girls is, I'm always impressed when she can hock up half a lung."
