Q: Band-aids: what for?

I noticed lots of my students have various tiny square band-aids on their ears. When I asked, I was told it is for their eye sight. *confused*

I had a student recently get her ears pierced for "eyesight" reasons. I believe that the ear is connected to the eye in Chinese medicine. Rather than getting an actual peircing, these students are probably just getting a new hole punched in the ear to improve eyesight.

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
