Children with 1.1 meters of relevant regulations are natural born nerds.

All children must be metric. Imperial children won’t fit.

@ Droll not Troll: 2 feet is ca. 0.61 meters, so there’s 3-4 feet of Chinese children! ;p ;p

You must first read through a 1.1 meter pile of relevant regulations books before you can take the cableway of jade screen.

Imperial China doesn’t use Imperial measurement.

If you can see over this pile of regulations, you are an adult, for metering purposes.

1.1 to 1.3 meters long.

I begin to understand why there are so many Chinese people.

This is why Chinese parents are always so strict: if you’re considered an adult not before the age of 18, but rather at 1.3+ meters, it means that high school needs to be finished alot faster.

“The child has grown, free of charge” I should hope so! Damn taxes…

The first 1.1 meters are free of charge. After that, you pay!

@Chuck: Funny, they just played “Ticket to Ride” on the radio here. It would be weird if they followed it with “Short People”.

The jade screen of cableway is much friendlier than the blue screen of death.

I have 2.4 children, measuring 1.8 meters in total. How many tickets do I need?

I guess, I need to get less than 1.1 meters of children if I want to take the cable away of the jade screen.
