Q: Adjusting temperature of radiators?

When I left for my trip a few weeks back it was freezing in my apartment, now its insanely hot.

 

Is there any way to adjust the temperature output of the city-provided heat coming out of my radiator? There is a 1-5 dial on the side of it, but it appears stuck in place. Is there a number to call or something? Im in Beijing if that helps. Thanks.

Nope.  You can't do it.  The only way you can regulate the temp in your apartment is by opening the window.  That is what I had to do when I lived in Dalian.  It really is a huge waste of energy not to have controls on the radiators.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
