(Newser)   Disguising your vodka as "water" in an old Evian bottle? Seems like the realm of the college-aged, but apparently such deception is also all the rage among Chinese government officials   (newser.com) divider line 59

Sneaking straight liquor out of a plastic bottle? Ah, college. A time I remember fondly but would never want to return to.

Naive?

College?  Try 7th grade.
By college nobody had to hide their booze.

So you're the reason we weren't allowed to drink from anything besides water fountains and stuff bought in the cafeteria.

Well, on the bright side, taking a politician out for a night of partying is only costing like $200 a night instead of $10,000+.  So they have that going for them.

A friend of my maternal grandfather's used to like to have a nip or two during the day.  His wife did not like this.  My grandfather, over at his friend's house one day, saw him take a drink from a garden hose without turning on the tap.  My grandfather asked him what the hell he was doing.  He had filled the hose with his favorite beverage, put a sprayer head on it and was able to have a nip whenever he liked.

Step 1: take a couple of big gulps out of bottle of grape juice
Step 2: top up with vodak
Step 3: profit!

When I was in school, a good portion of the upper class Engineering students were openly drunk. By that, I mean attending the lecture, popping open a tall boy and taking notes. For exams, a bottle of Wild turkey or Jim Beam was a common sight.

I used to bring Kahlua for my coffee into A's games inside baby bottles. Just tell the attendants that the wife and kid are already inside the ballpark. Never had any trouble.

CSB!!!

In sophomore year of high school some 15 years ago, two female classmates of mine decided it would be a good idea to bring vodak in a water bottle to social studies class at 10AM.  They got sloshed, and one of them passed out during class.  The teacher, a popular fellow well liked by the students, had a habit of waking up sleeping students in amusing ways.  So, he proceeded to grab the water bottle sitting by the passed out girl and sprayed vodak all over her.

Awww yeahhhhh.

We used to do that in high school band during football games.  Sneak a thermos into the stands filled with vodka or another alcoholic drink and pass it around.

Call me a cynic, but meaningful change in terms of corruption is going to take a looong time. During my time there, I recall a Chinese colleague telling me the only crime with corruption is getting caught.  Chinese legal counsel advising clients plenty of times to give gifts to court or govt officials to make an issue go away.   Tax collectors outright asking for bribes from foreign company officials.  Oh good times.


If you are a corrupt official, the chances of you getting caught are small enough that not being on the take is considered foolish.  You are really considered stupid if you are a Chinese businessman and not buttering up the local officials.  Not to mention, you aren't going to be very successful.

Reminds me of high school honors chem. Passing vodka in a Poland Spring bottle or cheap whiskey in a Snapple bottle.

I have a similar story. A classmate of mine in a big lecture class would bring in a water bottle full of vodka, and he would drink about half of it in that class. This guy had a problem. Anyway, one day he drinks a bit too much and breaks the seal, so he's getting up and down to go quite a bit. He gets up to go to the bathroom again, loses his balance, and just knocks everything off his little arm-desk and off the desk of the guy next to him. The whole class comes to a complete stop to see it. He apologizes, they put everything back on their desks, and he hobbles off to the bathroom. The guy next to him laughs a little and takes a big drink out of his water bottle - and sprays vodka all over the chair in front of him. They had accidentally switched bottles in the confusion.

Yeah, that was pretty much my point. I just couldn't believe China's culture of petty (and not so petty) corruption was going to change simply because the new boss decreed it. Human nature doesn't work that way.

CSB:
there was a clique or girls at my highschool who used to sneak their liquor by drinking Midori mixed with Mountain Dew in 7-11 Big Gulp cups. (In my book: quite the disgusting combo.) Then at some point someone spilled one in the computer lab and destroyed an Apple IIe so we couldn't bring sodas in any more.

The level of sheer panic these girls had was telling. You'd think they were being denied food and water by how they acted.
 
2013-05-01 12:45:16 PM
I distinctly remember a high school trip where one of the students had one of those mouthwash bottles that measured out a single shot.  It seemed overkill to have that much mouthwash with you but no one thought that much of it.

... ingenious bastards had taken vodka and used food dye to make it match the real color.

On top of the fact that the big boss is being sort of hypocritical, as I believe either the western media outlets and/or the HK papers reported that Xi's family worth was worth billions of dollars.  And as I'm sure you know, no one in China amasses a fortune based purely on hard work.  And certainly not on honesty.

I know honest people in China.  They're either poor or purely middle class.

Yes...yes it does.  If you're hiding liquor in a water bottle, juice drink, or garden hose on a day-to-day basis, suffice it to say, you might have a problem.

Things are a bit better.  A relative no longer has a no-show job over there. 

If you are a corrupt official, the chances of you getting caught are small enough that not being on the take is considered foolish. You are really considered stupid if you are a Chinese businessman and not buttering up the local officials. Not to mention, you aren't going to be very successful.

Agreed.  Corruption isn't news.  Someone actually standing up to the corruption is.
