Q: How far back do people teach about history in China?

Since China has one of the longest documented histories out of other countries how far back do they teach about that history in China? I've read and bought some materials from bookstores recently at Barnes & Nobles back at home. I found out the book that I bought had paper that was folded differently than any other paper I have ever come across. They said that was how Chinese use to make their books. I know there is other historic things but how far back does the teaching actually go?

They teach that the sanhuangwudi are euhemerized memories of early tribal leaders, approxamately five thousand years ago.

Are you talking about a polyptich? Fellow foreigner, as I am sure you have forgotten, Barnes and Noble is a commercial chain of bookstores.

Michael Thomas, oh how I have missed you.

Perhaps you should visit some of the wonderful museums China finances to share their proud history with the world.

Yes, China has a long history but I'm constantly shocked by how little of it the Chinese people know. The only dynasties most people know of is Qin, Han, Ming and Qing. Seems like schools just gloss over everything else and focus on the "humiliation" of the 19th and 20th centuries and the "triumph" of the communist party.

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
