When smart people turn stupid


It’s now a proven fact. Living in China does indeed make some people a bit dim… Latest victim: my bf. Just look what he came home with the other day.

Yes, it is. And yes, feel free to ridicule it. It’s a bike with a motor. A BIKE with a MOTOR?! (And then he makes fun of people that drive mopeds?!) I was speechless when I saw it, and I still am. What comments can be made about a giant, black, ugly thing that is now occupying space on our balcony?!

To my bf’s defend: everyone from his company ended up buying one, so maybe he fell for the group pressure.
But still

Liknande cyklar börjar visst också bli mer och mer populära i Europa har jag hört. Pga av CO2-debatten. Det går fortare & lättare att ta sig till jobbet än att cykla helt själv samtidigt som det är miljövänligare än att ta bilen. själv håller jag mig dock nog till en traditionell cykel ändå! *hihi*

Lullun -jag med. Kan inte fatta att vi har en motor-cykel (haha!) parkerad på vår balkong?! Det var inte något jag förväntade mig att vi skulle köpa när vi flyttade till Kina... :)
