Like every other places, you don't want to end in there. You lose freedom, which is a big thing.

I heard the shower-raping is more tolerable because of the reduced size of the Chinese 'brown mushroom'... lol

I guess the food must be the same as the university canteens too...

Chinese prison inmates must work in factory-like conditions. They make cell phones, toys...you name it. They have a very regular schedule and controlled work day: they get up at the same time every morning, are fed regular meals, have their working hours and sleep. I have a Chinese friend who was in prison for 3 years and he got to write and receive letters to friends and family, could occasionaly receive visitors and got to play his guitar sometimes.

I have another friend who was sent to a correction camp a few years ago for living in Beijing illegally and he said that was horrific. People without the correct papers to live in the city were swept off the street during a "clean-up" before a big event, and many women had little toddlers waiting for them at home and nobody looking after them and no opportunity to call someone to look after them so they were in there for months not knowing if anyone was taking care of their kids and home. Suicice rates were high too he said.

Yup, physical labor for half a day, and then farming gold online for the guards to make a hefty profit.

Oh and, those on death row have blood samples regularly taken, as their organs go straight on sale before the body's even cold.

Interesting fact: it's the inmate's family that has to pay for the prison costs.

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
