☯ ISSTH Chapter 510-511 ☯

Yin Yang ChinaNegative: Public drunkenness is pretty much acceptable. It’s not uncommon to see people (barely) walking around blind drunk, supported by less drunk friends, even after lunch. If seeing people throwing up on the street isn’t a common sight for you, it means you don’t go out much at night, in which case the pools of dried vomit you see the next morning are. I’ve even seen people faceplant onto the pavement on more than one occasion. Positive: Well, it’s not illegal to drink in public, and you don’t have to worry about being looked down upon for being three sheets to the wind!

  1. Hmm, as I don’t drink alcohol (I think it tastes awful) I wouldn’t get any of the benefits. I would only have to dodge yucky puddles of vomit 🙁 And since I don’t go to bars, hence have no experience in the matter, that would be a bad walk for me. Do they get drunk at “family” type restaurants too, or just the bars?

    1. Welcome to the club. I also binged for 1 week (and practically ignored my work) before I caught up at chapter 468. Now it’s the agonizing daily wait while wishing I could read Mandarin (and not doing anything to learn)

  2. Thank you for the chapters … oh, the long awaited return of the Lord Fifth dancers!

    What you describe in China would be frowned upon in current USA, but it wasn’t always this way. When I was just starting out in the working world many years ago drinking and being a drunk was not necessarily a bad thing. If being a drunk hurt your work performance, made you violent or cost your family, then it was bad. But many could hold their drink well, and were very good-natured drunks. I’m not sure when it went from this easy going attitude to the current inquisition.
