It's normal to those people that do it because that is their habit. It's a bad habit and it is something only they can change. I would hate for somebody to fart while I'm eating and spitting in front of people always is a gross site to see.

That's because it is normal. Sometimes they spit on the bus too; it doesn't matter if it's a normal 10 minute ride, or a 7 hour trip on a new bus. Learn to grin and bear it, or it will drive you crazy. A lot of the younger people think it's gross, but they can't change it either.

Two years ago, I was on the school bus to the second campus and the teacher next to me kept on passing gas afgain and again and again. Finally, unable to stand it anymore or move to another chair I openend the window. Every time someone tried to close it I would stop their hand. Finally, Gassy demanded I close the window and I just pointed to him and said loudly "feng pi" (fart). Those immediately around laughed and no one else bothered me with the window.
My fear was that I was going to toss my cookies, so I resolved tht if I did, it would be right on Stinky's lap.
Peeee-you!

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
