Q: What do people do here besides teach?

It seems that most foreigners come here to teach English or study, what other jobs or projects are foreigners in China involved with?

Mixture of jobs from international jewel thief, airline pilot, astronaut (though it's not as glamorous as it sounds, I was in charge of the onboard vending machines) and spy, though please, for your own safety, keep that to yourself. But then I came here and got a job teaching English to a bunch of snotty teenagers, and i've never looked back!

Funny how I've never met any English teachers in China, of all the foreigners I've met.

Well, except my high school English teacher.

Your question is a little demeaning, don't you think?

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
