@Mag & Dai,
2/3 of the entire human population might be a bit high, but among certain groups its probably a reasonable figure. Europeans/Mid-Easterners/some N Asian populations are more likely to struggle getting all their nutrition from a vegan diet as they're adapted to process dairy more so than other groups. Similarly younger kids need higher intakes of protein for brain growth (which can be had from nuts, dairy, etc, but they need to eat quite a bit of them), and people with iron deficiencies (esp. women) have a hard time getting enough iron intake without meat or very tailored supplements and specific vegetarian diets.

Yan, just make sure to get an HK to China or HK to US style adaptor. I have a PS3 from HK and I could not get the plugs to fit in most Chinese wall sockets/surge protectors. If you're serious about protecting it from potential shock, try to get an adaptor with a fuse in it (most of the mainland power strips are just splitters, with no surge protection).

@ Alien— yes, from foreigners (including white, black, yellow, green and rainbow). Though most who espouse those ideas keep it quiet in public.
Forums > Living in Kunming > Where for work visa?
Note that if you are applying in HK (and prob Thailand/Vietnam) your paperwork from the employer needs to explicitly say that you will be applying at that location, and not your home country. Last time I wa in HK, numerous people were turned away from the visa processing offices and told to go to the country listed on the forms (usually their home country). HK has become way more stringent than they used to be.

Again, its not really a witch hunt. Mostly its the case of people living in glass houses throwing bricks. The only reason people even care is because CL (yeah, that's him) /TM/MM/LL go on the forum with some superiority complex, then talks himself in circles asserting his superiority on every front while simultaneously telling everyone how he thinks they should act as "guests" of China.
