Q: Is there any point in buying a humidifier?

My nasal passages are irritated because of Beijing's extremely dry air and am thinking of buying a humidifier as a result. Has anyone ever used one before? Do they actually make a difference?

I have one in my bedroom.  It really does make a difference, so yes, I do think it is worth having.

I used to have one when I just got here, and I remember my skin not feeling like sand paper at that time, so I guess it is effective. I lost it afterwards, and got used to the dryness, but I kinda wish I had one right now.

Glass of water does the job, you'll be surprised how quickly it disappears.

They make quite a big difference. ... Beijing has dry air so getting a humidifier would be a smart move to make. I actually need to start using mine because my lips have become totally dry and chapped as a result from this weather. ..

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
