    If I moved to China and set up shop as a freelance proofreader consultant, could I make a killing?

    I have always wondered about starting a business making menu maps for Chinese takeout restaurants. The ones they use are always so bad.

    I showed that one to a few of the English teachers(Chinese and Mongolian) here, they thought it was hilarious.

    Who would ever name their menswear company Psycho International?
    And just what is the Scandinavian System? Sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel.

    I imagine a land, like Bhutan, where Barney Miller runs in syndication and he is the most popular person in the country. And then some local entrepreneur tries to cash in on it. And then when none of the shirts sell they ship the stock to the 1st World to sell to our poor people in thrift shops.

    For me, the best part is that they abbreviate the label "B.M."

    Anyway, I've picked up a couple of things (not much) while I've been out of communication, but here's one that I assume is a fake - I've never seen it anyway.

    Bought these in a thrift a couple months ago, they tore apart when I tried them on at home. Yesterday I looked more closely at the labels/print

    Polyester pants, heal thyself. Dead stock pants from the 1970s.
