Forums > Living in Kunming > Dragon's breath

Seeing as how I started this POS thread, I thought I'd ought to finish it, hopefully without offending anyone else. There are two issues that I see. First, is, for lack of a better word, dental decom, that is rotting teeth. That is always bad. Second is intestinal flora. That can be good or bad. I have heard that Asian have more intestinal fortitude than Westerners generally, because they eat spicier food, which has many health benefits, as anyone from New Orleans will tell you. However, here it may come from hotpots, and that could be good or bad with regard to the quality of oils and ingredients. The best I can say is two bad reasons and one good reason for dragon breath, but no numbers or empirical evidence available to examine the issue beyond that.

According to the Urban Dictionary:

To have breath that of which smells as if one has licked the butthole of a dead skunk for several hundred years.

Oh my god, have you smelled aliennew's Dragon Breath... there aren't enough packs of gum on earth to help that!

The term 'dragon breath' was used in the 2017 film, Maya Dardel. I mistakenly added the 's. I'm not sure exactly what it meant, but after being in China for a while, it seemed like a likely interpretation. In my opinion, it was a good film, with an interesting script. So @new alien who seems to want to pick a fight, I'm guessing you have dragon breath, too.

It is definitely cultural, but I think it goes beyond social class. For example, I think one of the reasons Chinese like very spicy food is because they can't taste it if it isn't that spicy. Smell and taste are inter-related. At Starbucks, and admittedly, I don't like Starbuck's coffee, the only coffee you can buy are these really dark roasts. Once again, I think it is because the Chinese can't taste a lighter roasted coffee.

'Fresh Air' also refers to a NPR radio series that focuses on liberal politics and women's issues. I'm almost certain she is referring to something like that. It may also refer to one's first significant travel to a different culture and the feeling one gets when one realizes that some cultures offer benefits that one might not have thought existed. Finally, this woman is a kid, and any political hyper-sensitivity is unnecessary, uncalled for, and pathetically naive. I don't care who said it.

One more thing. The Chinese usually drive relatively slowly. This one aspect of their driving culture is the key to survival on the road in any culture. It makes bad decisions avoid becoming fatal ones.

I don't like the Hollywood happy ending to this article. Road rage is a serious problem.

Rule number one here in China is everyone in front of you has the right of way. I don't care who it is whether it be an aggressive mother shoving people out of the way with her baby stroller or an 18-wheeler pulling out into ongoing traffic with horn at full tilt. Number two is if it weren't for cars, the taxes on cars, and the aholes that pay gas taxes to drive them, there wouldn't be the roads for us to get upset with them in the first place. Finally, I have seen many fights between cars and motorcycles. In my lifetime, the car has won every single battle. Don't push it.
