Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This wall scroll is discounted because of a minor line in the silk (basically one thread out of a thousand was pulled or missed a weave on the jacquard loom). You probably would not notice this if I did not tell you about this issue. This is a real bargain (less than half price, and way below cost).

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my fortune cookie?

So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
