We live in a world that’s anything but shy of conflicts. That’s why I’m constantly amazed by how much we citizens of the world share many similarities in our taste in uniforms.

Every time when I tell my friends in U.S. that China does not have a pornography industry–not legally at least–they appear to be shocked.

Traditionally, marriage is an important mark of maturity and accomplishment for Chinese. Marriage, to many Chinese, doesn’t only requires “love,” a more or less abstract concept, but other conditions such as material means and the responsibility to produce offspring for the family.

Just a little more than an hour after IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York on sexual assault charges, news and comments about this incident are circulated wildly on t.sohu.com, a leading microblog hosting website in China.
