Skateboard 滑板 (huá bǎn)

I never got the hang of this! Despite it being brainlessly easy to learn, i never got my head around being comfortable on a skateboard! Maybe that explains why I was never really cool growing up! I got a lot of respect for kids who can do all sorts of insane tricks on a skateboard, simply because I know i can't do what they can do!

Rollerskates 旱冰鞋 (hàn bīng xié)

Card description:
In the era where ABBA dominated the radio and John Travolta was actually desirable, rollerskates were the bomb. Credits to whoever invented rollerskates, as it really did give millions around the world a fantastic new form of entertainment.

In fact, it's probably not an exaggeration to say that a whole generation of children were born because their parents met each other having fun on skates.

If you were a merchant in China between 1970 to 2000 and you were looking for a product to sell, you cannot go wrong with selling or maintaining these 28-inch wheels bicycles. They probably transported more people to-and-fro in China than any other form of man-made transport in history.

Even today, you would still see elderly folk riding around town with one of these, with its signature C-shaped handlebars with a little bell on one side, and a bare metal rack to ferry their grandchildren or carry their groceries.

Card description:
"An accident under your feet". That's what in-line skates are if you use them to get to school everyday. Sooner or later you're going to get into an accident or a near miss. Don't get me wrong, I love in-line skating too and i ride a motorcycle everyday, so i know the probably of an accident isn't any higher than on a bike. But since in-line skating is popular among teens, doesn't need a license, and has a lot less protection, the hazards are higher.

Regardless, in-line skates are awesome means of transport if you got the skills. Put it this way, it's still way cooler than roller skates!
