Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What the hell does that say? I assume it is a very VERY poor translation but...

Thanks. I needed that. As a professional writer and editor, I'm hopeful the Chinese won't be able to take my job away.

$205 in shipping!- this must be a special code that foreign spies use. Perhaps it's not really a bike...

He does say that if you are looking for anything else in his country, he'll do his best to find it. How about a new IBM Thinkpad for cheap from the Lenovo factory



and if you need any other special items please contact me and i would like to do my best to help you to find it from our country .

Looks like someone used a translation website without bothering to check the accuracy with someone in the know.

That's great.

I think this will help with the technical part of the explanation.

Oh ****...this is soo funny....
As an asian who grew up in Asia (sorry guys, my mother tongue was English), I have to say that was some bit of Chinglish, whatever the hell it was, I hope it make sense to him/her
Could the culprit be some bad Chinese-English translation program?

Yes...that's a very good assumption based on our assumed intelligence...I'd say we have found OBL's evil twin brother, OCM, aka Osama Chow Mein.
