They say the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. I don't know who 'they' are or how 'they' know so much. You can use your Mickey Mouse watch too: position your watch with the face up and the hour hand pointing directly at the sun. Halfway between the hour hand and twelve o'clock will be due south. Of course the compass app on your phone may be useful if you haven't noticed NEWS on screen of the GPS app.

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
