They closed the live bird markets, but not the trade of poultry and eggs

 

The reason why the live bird markets are so dangerous is because the H7N9 can spread very fast to other birds in those kind of markets, and if they are taken back to the farms it will spread again to the livestock of those places. That is not a problem with the eggs.

Because eggs don't sneeze, but chickens do?

That why chicken feet are so good for you, I think they are imported. Every store has 20,000 chicken feet and 5 whole chickens with feet for sale.

It's the same logic that says the water in the sink is not drinkable, but you can rinse off your fruit it in and it will be "clean."

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
