Chinese

There were over 25,000 Chinese working on the American railroads. They bathed and change their clothes between meals. The Americans at this time only bathed once or twice a year.

Whilst working on the American railroads, the Chinese drunk lukewarm tea kept in 40 gallon whiskey barrels besides the railroad tracks.

China has more English speakers than the United States.

The Chinese equivalent of “say cheese”, to get a person to smile for a photograph, is to ask the subject to say “qieza”, which means aubergine.

If the population of China walked past you in single file, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.

13% of the Chinese population have the surnames "Lee" and "Zhang."

According to a 2013 report, there are 20 million more men in China than there are women.

30% of Chinese adults live with their parents.
