They often drink rice wine, and they sometimes drink Chinese Beer (the only brand I know of is TsingTao). They are fond of a wonderful plum brandy.

But I don't think the public house system of drinking is a Chinese custom, for whatever reason. Interesting historical question.

But surely carbide precipitation will only occur under conditions of thermal acidity thereby leading to abnormal inwardly facing calcium deposits. At all other times the No.47 bus will only go to Scunthorpe via Beijing on Tuesdays.

Carbides and carbide materials include silicon carbide, old coffee tins, tungsten carbide, sausage rolls and titanium carbide and because Knight Carbide Spade Drills are designed to fit the most popular style of buses they have changed the numbers accordingly. The tools are interchangeable at lower cost and in most cases increased performance is guaranteed. They take pride in their ability to quickly turn around your sharpened tools. There on line collection and delivery service is now the No.47 bus and will go to Scunthorpe via Beijing every day of the week. Tickets please...

Most of my Chinese friends are very moderate drinkers. They get flushed with only one drink and intoxicated quite easily. Its not a pleasant 'high' for them. Not to say that all Chinese don't drink but its pretty common that most of them refrain except on very special occasions.

Yes Chinese drink, mostly just the men, few ladies here drink alchol of any kind, or if they do in strict moderation.

There are many many different kinds of Chinese beers, Tsing Tao (pronounced Ching Dao, the name used the old Wade Gile's system o pronunciation. There are over 200 brweries in China.

Most of the most of the beers are lager type beers. There are joint ventures with Budweiser, Fosters, Steinlager, Heineken etc etc. The Budweiser is even worse than the Bud in the US, better off just pouting into a urinal and cut out the middle man!

There are even some shady operations producing fake's of the international brands. It is something when the fake beer tastes better than the real stuff, particularly true of Bud and Heinekan.

Chinese rarely drink in what we would call a pub as a pub is a western concept but bars are making a huge appearance. There is one street near my drinking hole 'The Blarney Stone' which is just bar after bar after bar....... Very busy as younger Chinese like to go there on the weekend in particular.

There are many ex-pat style pubs and bars in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and they are now attracting more locals.

The Chinese actually prefer to eat and drink not drink and eat so most drinking is done in resteraunts. Eating togehter is a very big social thing here. I have tried explaining the UK type pub culture and why I like to just drink, meet friends, play music and not always eat to my wife who is Chinese but she cannot grasp the cultural ramifications of me needing a visit to a pub, but hell she puts up with it.

Apart from beer the Chinese like baijiu, a high alchohol spirit made from sorghum wheat. Leaves me belching all evening. Truly only for the dedicated drinker but at times I have to drink it when I am entertaining clients etc. You can get it with snake, scorpion and deer penis added to it. According to the Chinese traditional medicine doctors it is good for the libido but too much would only mean the dreaded 'droop'.

Wine is also made in China, but I stick to imported wine as the Chinese stuff often makes you want to gag.

And yes you can smoke in pubs, bars and resteraunts.

Dianavans comment is 99% true. Chinese, Japanese and many other Asians lack an enzyme which helps break down alchohol quicker, resulting in red faces, speedy drunkenness and the usual inability to stand upright and make complete sentences. But I have met some hard drinkers in my time in Asia.

Sorry Sooz but there is public transport in Lincolnshire. I know this to be a fact as I have personally picked up the droppings from the pony that pulls the trap. Very good rhubarb it produces too.

Did once see a bus in Sleaford and another in Spalding (not the same one). Perhaps they were lost. They should have put the road signs back after the war!

Who did put the service in Scunthorpe and why would particles need to wave twice. Could this be a Chinese wave, the oriental equivalent of the Mexican wave. Soy sauce instead of salsa.

Come to think of it there used to be a cracking chinese restaurant in Market Deeping. And I've seen a chinese bus driver - going sideways but not waving. Now wondering which of my brothers is chinese, can't be me I'm buddhist.

Sunhorpe doesn't make sense, that's why they were put in. Which c**t did it nobody knows.

It certainly wasn't the Vikings, they took one look at the place and decided it would need rebuilding before it could be pillaged and moved up river to rearrange Goole. Legoo, however, wasn't very popular with the locals and the name was sold to a toy company in Denmark. Something got altered in the translation however and the rest is history. Had this not have happened, Logo world would now be owned by the Goolies.

I have a friend who travelled to Nepal and China in the 80s. he brought back a taste for a drink called Maotai - 55-percent spirit made of wheat and sorghum. Served in a little pottery cup, it is so alcoholic that it virtually evaporates on the tongue.

China has the same tradition as many other countries that over the centuries poets, calligraphers and artists have created their works when drunk.
