Q: How about a list of Chinese made items not used in China?



So I am reading this article about Bibles printed in China may not get to the US over trade and tariffs.


I was thinking about all the other strange things made here and not used.


Some bibles used in China but very small, half the guns in the world or more than half and not guns for citizens.


I have to explain to students going to Canada for family homestays what a garbage disposal, (all made in China)  is and not put the bones or shrimp peelings in them, how to use a dishwasher  or a dryer, trash compacter.


I have never seen a garbage disposal in China, or a dishwasher, a  few clothes dryers.


Explaining how to use hot water to wash clothes is always an interesting class.


So what else do they make here that you never see.   IDEAS?

I have never seen a "Yale" padlock in a store here, some are waterproof, bullet proof with lifetime warranty, but I know they are made here. Cheap padlocks here will rust in 4 months and constantly have to replace.

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
