Q: For those bug enthusiasts what types of bugs am I likely to find in China?

I haven't seen butterflies, caterpillars, ladybugs, fireflies. Can't remember the last one I saw. I did see some mosquito's and maybe some spiders are there any more you can name?

  I came across a praying mantis on the stairs of my flat once. Cool looking f****r too. He was there later on my way back as well, just much much shorter. Also seen some major big-arse spiders. One was the diameter of a tennis ball. Scared the life out of me, i'm really not a fan of spiders. Stood my ground once when someone set an alsation on me, but one look at a daddy long-legs and I s**t my pants. The bugs that i'm looking for though are the ones that sit in the trees in the summer and rub their legs like crickets. The sound is unbelievable, these things must be huge and there must be millions of them, but I can never spot a single one. Been pissed on by a spider in my sleep, bitten on the ear by a cockroach and drunk centipede wine. Most important thing to remember is don't stomp on cockroaches; if you get a pregnant mother you could end up causing an infestation. Right.....gotta get my boy to sleep, he's bugging me.

A lot of cockroaches were killed by me because my roommates did little clean work.  There lives many earthworms in our flower pots at my hometown. It was also really fun to feed the ants with the millets in summer. Sweet childhood memory.

In Hunan, I've seen Giraffe Stag Beetles (Prosopocoilus giraffa) everywhere. They used to infest the wife's parent's house. She would just rage-smash them against the wall, and discard them.

 

Here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosopocoilus_giraffa

Very happy bugs. There is garbage everywhere and most of the birds that would eat them are dead because of the smog.

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
