    @Ziich Nice!

    Although sex plays a huge part of most people lives it’s insane some of the misinformation that floats around.

    Definitely should be some interesting questions/conversations that come out of this!

    I’ve only visited but I remember a couple things.  It’s near-to Shanghai, as in easy day trip by fast train near.

    That’s it actually.  Nothing else really struck me in any way.  It has more canals than Chengdu.

    Maybe you could find more info at SuzhouLiving?

    For the most part I enjoy it.  I get a big kick out of the arrhythmic pattering sounds of rain on the eaves of balconies in old apartment complexes.

    And you’ve got to admit, after a long, grey, dry, dusty winter when it starts raining frequently in late spring into summer, it does clean things up.  More so than a place like Beijing at least.

    I was riding around last night when it was raining lightly and rode past some of the parks along Renmin and 3rd ring and it smelt super fresh.  Like earth and grass and tree blooms after a clean rain fresh.

    I’m going to list my positives.  Spend too much time complaining as is so just going to focus on the good vibes.

    -Great city for riding bikes in

    -Friendly people

    -Access to Western Sichuan (and Western China in general)

    -Dynamic environment

    -Smaller – not big and overwhelming like Beijing/Shanghai

    -Sleepy shaded side streets

    -Growing craft beer scene

    -Long shoulder seasons

    -Rainy days

    The worst part is, he can’t drink away his sorrows.  This sort of situation is terrifying for any small upstart and even if you’re not a beer drinker it’s definitely one of those karmic things:  put yourself out there for someone in need!

    Fiete plays the sweetest jams.  Definitely worth going just to pick up some killer new music.

    So word is that PLGRM (projection arts specialists) has some insane new light set up they’ll be bringing along.

    Music & visuals!  Should be cool.

    [I]t is every Friday at 8pm and you can definitely come. You should come, it is a lot of fun. Tell your friends with bicycles also, the more people that join the group rides the more enjoyable they are.

    This is all true.  If you don’t have a bicycle we also have a few for rent.  You can always call us at 8504 2450 to confirm rental availability.

    Would be cool to see you there!

    Huh? What service is that? That sounds extremely useful..

    There’s another service where the driver rocks up on a folding bike.  He drives you where you need to go.  Once he’s deposited the passenger and car he just zips off.

    I’ve seen a whole lot of the drivers lately.  They have these little 12″ wheel folding bikes. The front’s outfitted with an electric motor.  You’ll spot them in navy blue vests with twin reflective strips.

    I don’t disagree with the points either of you make, but these questions are equally pointless. This thread is supposed to be about discussing Johnny 5, entrepreneurship in Chengdu, Johnny’s background, and pastries. Donuts are a thing of joy. Please lower your alert level, social justice police.

    In truth I think his original response to the question was tasteful and did plenty to already pre-empt even needing to ask it.  Just didn’t want to get pegged for not asking a question.

     “Ask me anything.” The question is not ment to be anything more than what it is you see – just a question. If you rather take things personal, that’s okay too, but I’m afraid I can’t help you with that.

    You’re original wording is crude, dude, and you got called out.  It is a thinker of a question and if looked at the right way, really can tickle the ol’ skull pickle.  But if you want to ask anything, why not do it in a way that doesn’t rain on someone’s parade? Judging by the eloquence of your last remark, you seem quite capable of it.

    I think that’s what the conflict here is digging at.  We probably could hash out half a dozen blanket statements we could say that would piss off most of this forum’s viewing audience: Regardless of one’s ability to keep a cool head or label something as personal opinion. But where’s the value in that?

    Let’s just move forward and remember that women eat donuts too.  As well as lanky white guys, Chinese people, African medical students, English teachers, etc.

    Perhaps it was in poor taste, but it was clearly a joke and not an actual attack upon women.

    Let’s boil the question down to a more basic would-you-rather format:

    Would you rather fuck your mom’s body or her mind?

    Tasteless?  It’s the same kind of cornball machismo shit you’d hear horny bike mechanics prattle out in bravado, behind a counter, surrounded by a bunch of other horny likeminded dudes.

    Or we could go back to joking about how many donuts we could hang off our dicks.  This is the very type of hilarious question that when kicking it with a bunch of girls you’d hear thrown around off hand.

    Problem is, as a public forum, regardless of a lack of active input from different women in the community AND an undeniable imbalance in sexes amongst the expat community, I can see how women might see this sort of joke and think of it as what it is.  Lame.

    I can’t go all high and mighty cause I might say this same sort of thing in the comfort of my dude zone, surrounded by other horny dudes aiming to have a sword fight.  But here there are apparently women within the community and if they are voicing their discomfort then maybe this sort of thing shouldn’t be taken so jokingly.

    I for one feel guilty that I saw these questions, passed them off as just crude jokes and didn’t stop to think that it might offend someone out there and played the part of a voiceless bystander.

    So here’s my question finally! Johnny!  What are you thoughts on sex equality?  Do you feel these kind of questions for your “ask me anything” convey the open spirit of a constructive format to introduce yourself to your community and potential customers?

    That’s an awesome stretch from Longquan to Taiping.  You can also follow the edge of the range down to Sanxing and on.  Great climbing if you’ve got the gall to hook it up into the hills!

    How many calories are in your donuts?

    Really?

    What about favorite tunes for listening while working?

    Heard some great things about the first drop-off/sales event.

    What kind of products do you accept and/or sell?

    From what I’ve seen and heard I think the big thing is clothing, but they’ve also expanded into other things like toys, costumes and other odds-and-ends.  Definitely worth contacting them or checking this out though!
