Gary's random little things about China:
You can search long and hard, in every drugstore and sundries market in China, and you will not find underarm deodorant for sale anywhere.
After traveling all over China, I know this to be true everywhere in China except Hong Kong.
If you ask a Chinese person why there is no deodorant for sale, they will tell you plainly, "Chinese people do not smell bad".
My reply is, "Have you never been on a crowded bus in the summer?"
