Q: Has anyone else been feeling the electricity when you go out?


I'm not exactly sure what it is, but everytime I go out I always feel the electricity. Whenever somebody touches me it always happens. What can this be, is it something I have to watch out for?

That is called static electricity, and it does happen during dry spells on winter time.  The layers of cloth you put on to feel warm, as you move create friction aqnd build an electrical charge on you.  When you touch something, it will discharge and only then you will feel it.  It is normal, nothing to be worried about.
The only way to avoid it will be to tie a bare copper wire to your ankle and let it run on the floor, so the electrical charge will disipate as made,m and will not accumulate and give you a shock when touching something.  But since it is not practical, no one does.

A:Hear me out on this before calling me crazy - First of all, I am not praising the Chinese healthcare system. It is well-known that most doctors are unqualified (I work for a medical school and my boss estimates that 90% of doctors in the mainland are unqualified). Doctors regularly engage in overtreatment while running unnecessary tests and prescribing useless medicine. Antibiotics are grossly overprescribed and the the number of patients given unnecessary IV's is laughable.  These criticisms acknowledged, there is a certain efficiency in the system. When you need to see a doctor, there's no need to make an appointment. You go to the hospital, line up and within 20-30 minutes you can usually be seen by a doc. If tests are needed, you can quickly have the tests right then and there. Compare that to the systems in may western countries where you often have to wait lengthy periods of time to see a doctor. Then, when the doctor prescribes a test you have to wait an additional  time for that, it often takes longer to get the results and many doctors aren't even taking new patients in America due to the shortage of primary care physicians and certain specialists. I'm not saying the healthcare system in China is exemplary but it is efficient and generally meets the basic needs of a massive and mostly poor population in spite of its major shortcomings. It would be nice if doctors were more accessible in America at least.  -- dongbeiren
