    I have been told that the (mainland) Chinese refer to the “after 90s” generation almost like North Americans say “millennials”. Roughly, those are the ones who have grown up with  influence from the outside world and have a more global perspective: they are very different from their parents.

    So the closest culturally-aware translation is probably something like “keep your pants on, hippies”.

    Edit: I can’t find much (English) reference to that cultural divide, but this mentions it, at least: http://articles.cnn.com/2010-07-18/tech/china.post90s.generation_1_internet-analyst-wild-card-generation-tencent?_s=PM:TECH

    Oh man, people born in the ’90s are allowed to have sex now?

    I would have assumed the image on that sign meant “no CPR allowed.”

      The first time I rode that thing, they were playing Cher’s greatest hits all the way up. It was very weird.

        There is or was a large framed picture of hard-drinkin’ Leslie Nielsen in his wilderness years (pre-”Airplane!”) in the departure lounge, which I found a bit bizarre and not as funny as the original “Naked Gun”, but waaay funnier than “33 1/3:  The Final Insult”.

    Wait, those kids were totally not doing what the sign showed. They were doing more of a face to face, not cowgirl. WTF, China? WTF? Oh wait. Is that a pun?

    The sign reads
    “There are risks in high places,Love Love be careful”

    The first sentence is self-explanatory.The second sentence’s meaning: 

    “Love Love” – referring to intercourse, or simply sexual activities in general 
    “be careful” – probably intended means “think twice”Therefore, the sign can be interpreted as “There are risks high up in the air, think twice before you act sexually.”However, it can also be interpreted as ‘There are risks high up in the air, be careful when you act sexually.’

    But… everyone wants to join the 100 M high club!

  10. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    So are other positions allowed?

    Fondola?

    Wait, it’s confusing… since the nineties per se began on January 1, 1991, do people born in 1990 count?  If they don’t, then people born in 2000 surely DO count, as the “noughties” didn’t begin until (you guessed it) January 1, 2o01.

    It shouldn’t be a problem now, but just wait a few years, when the hormones start a-flowing!
