China is Stupid Sometimes.
There's a chain of convenience stores in Shanghai called 'All Days'. The happen to have a store near my house (two actually), but recently I've noticed something: all the beer is warm. GOD DAMN IT. Tonight, via a helpful translator (some dude), I finally got an answer as to why.
As a cost saving measure, they have decided that because it is winter, they need not provide cold drinks. Seriously. They have turned the refrigerators off because it is cold outside, and they now simply act as glass doored light boxes filled with luke warm drinks. The cashier at the store saw this as a smart move. I disagreed.
Warm beer blows. WE ALL KNOW THIS. But here I am, with my beers chilling in the freezer at home like an idiot. Anyone who likes warm beer should be injected with gout and deballed. Stupid China.
