    Personally I quite liked https://www.youtube.com/user/serpentza/videos and some of the people he works with for learning more about life China.

    Anyway most of that seemed aimed at the stereotypical ignorant American.

    1) How many people do boxing or similar with no desire to enter a ring.
    2) They could have explained the traditional medicine concept of keep the person healthy and then payment stops until they are better. Either way homoeopathy is not hard to understand.
    3) I found the following to be amusing

    4) Is it a thing people think?
    5) Are you supposed to eat in silence and speak in hushed tones? Also being loud in such places is a stereotype of Americans which makes that even more amusing.
    6) I suppose if you are the ones defining corruption...
    7) This one does seem to be a more American thing I guess. I once read a very entertaining, supposedly informative but I mainly found it entertaining, called American ways that went into some detail in things like this.
    8) I suppose it helps if you come from a place where they pay a wage worth speaking of to all staff.
    9) Again this is quite the American thing, or at least the part where you have to build a history (a lot of other places are more like any bed debts in your past, reasonable chance of being paid back/paid interest, we're good). Sickens me really but it is what it is.
    10) I am familiar with some of the interesting things which happen in Hong Kong but I had not heard of Chinese nationals going stateside for this sort of thing
