Q: October 22nd - 400 AQI - Anyone else dying in Beijing?

Air quality index has hit over 400...my throat was killing me all day and I was wondering why.

 

Check out the graph on the US embassy. 300-500 air quality index is considered the last level - hazardous.

I'm not dying in Beijing...because I don't live there. If you don't like it, why don't you move? Didn't you know that Beijing has bad air quality? I was there for 2-3 days, it wasn't as bad as that, and I could tell I didn't want to live there. I could feel it when I breathed, and there was a constant haze.

Close your mouth.

Buy some lozenges.

Move away from Beijing.

 

Any of the above will work.

I agree with Tylerm_PRC... there isn't much you can do about pollution! And i know, i've been in Beijing for 15 years!! 

I think, the first step is for people in general to stop complaining about it as there is nothing we can do about that... except moving away!!

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
