Are the Chinese all ex-squaddies?

#1
Other than an ability to get locked up in any language or wnak in a sanger, the other truly squaddie-special skill I've witnessed is the ability to get some shut-eye anywhere - especially on exercise. I think the Chinese are on one big stag, given this website - some heavy sleepers there:

What the hell were you searching for to find that?

There was a gym in Shenzhen that began hiring out crash mats at lunchtime so local office workers could get their heads down for a crafty gonk. It got to the point there wasn't room anymore for the lunchtime classes. Brilliant idea, wish I'd thought of it.

I could see it catching on!

It’s an Asian thing, my workers suffer from sleep depravation after 4 hours without sleep ,If they miss a food brake they are rolling around on the floor holding their belly crying “PAIN PAIN” less than hour later.

There's a chinese kid in my class who sleeps constantly EVERY break.

Must be the cool thing to do in China.
Why doesn't he copy the british kids, and sleep during lessons?

because the kid's parents will force them to get best grades...

As an ex Matelot I have acquired the ability to kip anywhere, anytime. I am not of Asian origin, whether it be slopeheaded or ragheaded.

My mrs however is not impressed with this feature, dropping off in the Doctors waiting room whilst waiting for my turn is embarassing and out of order, I should be talking to her in hushed tones, not snoring quietly away until my name is called..

Do you think I may have someAsian Ancestry I am not aware of or am I just a lazy Tw@t?

Right with you on that one, I spend a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms, often for hours on end, and would rather kip than try to engage in small talk. Being of Yorkshire origins, my mum has many neighbours of an Asian persuasion, and I must have picked up 'lateral ancestry' during my visits to her.

Time for squaddy bye byes, time for squaddy bye byes.

They're not that obvious, tis' a simple matter of "face" e.g. whilst working in Bangkok in 2002 and on a business trip to Tokyo I was slightly freaked out to realize that the Thai junior I took with me was able to sleep with his eyes open on the flight 8O Response I had afterwards was that he'd taught himself at school - smart kid which is why he was driving a BMW to work and I was walking :oops:
