Hero tag is appropriate. Good on him.

Hero tag validity is heavily dependent on the type of booze used.

Would've sucked if he'd died from alcohol poisoning, though.

"Chinese cabby does what any quick-thinking hero would do to save a suicidal man, he gets him drunk  assists the man in committing suicide."

Fixed that for those of us who are mature enough to accept that there's nothing inherently wrong with suicide.

No, don't, trust me on this. Baijiu is Chinese grain alcohol, it smells like rocket fuel and somehow manages to smell worse.

I once read that suicide is not officially discouraged in China. Population control mechanism, I suppose.

Good luck. I've tried several varieties of flavored and unflavored, including some recommended by friends, and a sample of supposedly higher-grade Wuliangye. I'll admit the more expensive varieties were less horrible, but I still considered it all worse than similar-priced bourbon imports available in China.

You don't want to mess around with that stuff. "Paint thinner" doesn't even begin to describe it.

That said, sipped veeeeeeeeery slowly throughout a meal, it can be quite nice.

If you're already drinking rocket fuel to get messed up, baijiu is a (small) step up.

If you want to try Chinese spirits, I would recommend huangjiu (rice wine or "yellow wine") instead. You still may not like it, but your odds will be a lot better than with baijiu.

A quick search tells me it can also be known as shaojiu, which has me strangely curious, as I remember long ago trying some Korean soju. The words are of similar origin, but I'm wondering how different the drinks are - apparently, soju can have a much lower alcohol content.

Or even better: 紹興酒, Shaoxing wine. That stuff is awesome, like an extremely dry brandy. I always drink it when I eat Chinese food.

Baijiu... the nastiest thing possible. Perhaps not 100% hero alcoholism as article reveals the cabbie made the depressed guy drink it.

Still, serious...^^
