Q: Why are the streets of Beijing so aweful?

Every time there's a downpour here, you literally have lakes at every big intersection flooding the place and making it impossible for pedestrians to cross. Who designed these roads???

In china they build things so that it looks pretty the very second they've finished building it. after that they dont care.
thats why so many highways get washed away, bridges collapse, , high speed train run into each other and other things we will never know about

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
