Shut Up! Shut Up! Shut Up!

The mating rituals of the Chinese are fascinating. Apparently not impressed by America's speed-dating phenomenon, a company in Shanghai organized a silent-dating event in which blind daters communicated through written notes, drawings, and body language—and their mouths were sealed if they broke the no-speaking rule. Watch:

  1. Kind of cute, actually.

  2. Silent Dating events are not uncommon in this country either. I read about them 2 or 3 years ago.

  3. Alan, really? Maybe good ol' American innovation isn't dead after all.
