  1. Anti-pollution face masks?

    Um...your air mask says its for PM10....which its why its called a city mask, for car exhaust..this mask isn't doing shit for pm2.5 buddy, lol.
  2. Can you share some more details? What are the seminars for? Are you targeting university students in particular and for what reason?
  3. Anti-pollution face masks?

    To add to this, I looked at the official test results....the filters were tested for 1 hour and the bacterial/viral filter for 4 hours, lol. I'm not trying to knock em,but I don't think an hour of having a useful filter is going to make that much of a difference. Better to have an air filter in your room and get some lung cleansing through the night as you sleep.
  4. Anti-pollution face masks?

    I was having this conversation with several fellow masters students in one of my bio labs a few years ago back in the US. Because of the level of pollution, lets say in a city like Beijing, even surgical mask wouldn't be of much use for longer than 1 hour. These websites always show these wonderful air mask but they never mention their limits because they are never really tested in environments that have air pollution scales greater than 500+ for days at a time. In my opinion, I think they are useless after 24 hours in a beijing like smog. I'll give you a week in the zhou when the whole week is over 200.
  5. Business visa to china

    You are coming to live in China on a business visa? Aren't business visas only good for 2-3 months at a time?
  6. bottled water 5 gallon delivered

    Yeah, WaHaHa water isn't delivered to you by WaHaHa here. Usually the small shop downstairs from your building has the water, grab a card and give them a call when you need water. They will just deliver it to you. If you don't already have a 5 gallon jug, then they will ask you for a security deposit (not trying to steal your money). Wahaha for me cost 12 yuan per jug and the other brand is 8yuan. But some shops charge like 1 or 2 yuan more.
  7. salsa on Fridays at Carbon bar

    I believe Kevin doesn't have Barossa Bar on Tuesdays anymore. It was moved to a new location. I could be wrong though. I'll ask the Mrs when I get home. Thats where I met my wife! That bachata dancing was just too hot . Kevin school is awesome. I've seen lots of the other videos coming up from other schools arounds town and they are trash. Kevin is a solid teacher and pretty cool guy.
  8. Ever lose your passport far away in China? Are you fkd?

    Now, yes, but back in 2009, there use to be a guy just chilling outside who already bought tickets and he'd sell you one quickly. They didn't put names on them and you didn't have to match it against ID's. Times have changed.
  9. seeking other men

    @san5324 haha! Wasn't there two G+'s back in the day? Like '08 '09? I could've sworn one was gay and the other for lesbians, and then the lesbian one got shut down or something like that. I have a picture of me on the strip pole at the lesbian one, lmao! I know there is an app called Blued, suppose to be like the chinese jackd, or the other one that is more popular in the west. My roommate a few years ago was gay, I went with him to a gay bar on BaoShan Road, next to 88 bar. I don't know if that place is still open. Maybe just post a new ad?
  10. I remember when Eudora first opened, it was the place to get REAL pizza, haha. It's gone down hill, getting worn down, and they aren't keeping up with it. Still seems packed though. It had to have been sold and changed management.
  11. I LOVE Slims. There service keeps getting worse but their steaks and burgers and legit. They need a new bartender as well.
  12. VPN

    You get a free beer, or shot, I prefer shots.
  13. VPN

    Send me your email. (that way i still get my referral benefit!)and i will send you what I use. It's fast, awesome, use it on my phone, computer, tablets, all good. No way they are blocking this one! Must keep it off the forums as well.
  14. Have any NFL fans in hangzhou?

    NY Giants baby! The problem with the sports groups is it ends up being 90% NBA, which I have ZERO love for.
  15. Ever lose your passport far away in China? Are you fkd?

    I didn't read that whole thing but I've lost my passport before. You need to FIRST go to the entry exit bureau and tell them you've lost your passport. They give you a slip of paper that says you have 30 days to get a new one. Take that slip to your embassy, then they will reissue you a new passport. The slip is necessary. I did it backwards, I first went to the embassy and they told me I needed the paper from the entry exit bureau. That piece of paper is good enough to get on trains. Then you get your new passport, take it back to the entry exit bureau and they will put in a new visa. Done
