    Doesn't even feel like Aubrey when it doesn't have you missing the Dominoes cashier that told you to enjoy your pizza 6 months ago. Only Redeeming point is Too Good.

    No, Firstly swirly said he watched Qos. Lyrical prodigy said who watches Qos at ten years old, I said I probably started watching it just before 10.
    The other line, which is not interdependent to the line regarding Qos stated that I remember watching motd and teletubbies when I was younger. Didn't say they were at the same time though, just use to watch all three.

    Today will be a good day.

    Got approached by a school to run a couple of 1-off reward courses for some of their highest acheiving students.. said they wanted something very English, that the students would not normally do.

    I thought why not.. and suggested a football/language course. and they loved the idea.

    So today I have to take 8 young teenagers to a football pitch for 1.5 hours, do a few drills, play a couple of games, and teach them some football words. All for 1500rmb, (about 165 pounds) - not bad for an hour and a half of playing football! Contract lasts for another 4 weeks, and if they are happy, will try and negotiate a 2nd reward course, based around a different english theme.

    Tonight afterwards, need to host a small model-united nations, for a university.. not quite as well paid, only 60 pounds per hour, but should be a good day.. football andpolitics, and a couple of hundred quid earnt for not much real work!

    How pervasive is crime in your locality? and in China generally speaking.

    much disappoint

    whole album is boring and too long and too much of a blur, decent production value though.

    thoughts on hova being in the dog house though?

    Crime over here is huge compared to back in the UK.. but its a different sort of crime.

    There is a lot of 'wiggle-room' over here.. and many things that are illegal, but are accepted anyway.

    I mean, I could walk down the street outside my office, and Half of the business I walk past will be illigal.. either not paying tax, or not registered/licensed..

    There is a police station at the end of the road, they know all about it.. but they wont do anything - its just the way things are here. Every few months they will come around looking for illigal businesses, but warning will leak out 'somehow' and not-surprisingly all the business will be closed on that day, and the temporary food places mysteriously gone.

    There is just a lot of accepted ways to break the law, that wont really get you in any trouble. For instance If I need to get a train and I cant get a ticket (quite frequent due to holiday times) - well.. my wifes father knows a train captain, who is friends with all the other train captain.. they will get me a 'black market' ticket, escort me through the station, wave me past seccurity (the seccurity guy is in on it) and onto the train.. Goverment knows all about train captains doing this, but.. no one does anything.

    Same with migrants, half of the western people here I have met are working illigally.. Most have legal jobs to keep them in the country, but then work on the side illigally for more money. Its so common, but just accepted.

    ---

    Actual crime, in the UK sense, is pretty small though. I have travelled a lot in my city, and there is no where I would not feel safe to go. Drug use is mild at most, violent crime is not to bad here, etc. Once I saw a fight on a train, and it was the most pathetic mild thing ever, compared to UK standards.

    I am sure the crime exists, but to my eyes I see less then in the UK, and statistically its not to bad

    ---

    This ofcourse is only true for non-major cities. If your in shanghai, or Beijing, or anywhere near the centre of a major city.. you obey the law.. tons of policemen and army officers everywhere, and they dont **** around. But out in the less important parts of the country, life is pretty unregulated.

    Spoiler:

    I actually really like how they are very lenient on small business not paying tax.. yet big business must pay all they need to (usually due to being owned, or part owned by the state) - although its a wierd system, that involves many small companies breaking the law.. it works a lot better then the UK, where big buisness can avoid paying tax, but little business are hit with a full bill.

    Just finished football time. I am rusty as hell at playing, but compared to these Chinese kids, who only ever play basketball, I was a footballing god.

    Good fun, nice kids, girls actually did a lot better then the boys and won the final game we played, hopefully can keep this contract going!

    Yeah, I've heard good things too, so maybe it's just me. I feel like avengers has just been done to death, it's getting a little stale. Story was quite weak imo, too. Plus no Thor, who's the best
