Chinese bachelors

Here's another hilarious posting by my new follower Mr Li from Lund:

I know it's difficult to imagine that there are going to be 30 million bachelors in 2030, no, no, it should be more, the statistics says that there are going to be 30 million more men than women in 2030 in China.

And also, there are 5 or 6 million Bachelors (of Arts or of Science) graduate every year in China. China is such a country always has huge numbers, it's really a heaven for mathematics lovers. Now one third of these bachelors can't find jobs, majority of them can't find decent jobs. That's life in China, although lots of people are enjoying luxurous life.

But I'm never going to talk about a sad stroy (if later my story is sad, I'll surely never talk about it). I'm going to ask you how to deal with these 30 million male bachelors (and this can be possible only if every woman marries, and the partner must be a man, it's far too difficult)? I'll try to encourage them to have gay-love, the more the better, but avoid AIDS please. To those Bachelors, I'll encourage them to migrate abroad (that was a suggestion from Guo Gan, the fourth or fifth leader in China I guess). Are my ideas ridiculous? Maybe no...

A Japanese bio-genetical professor argues that poor families have more chance to born boys, rich families have more chance to born girls. He proves this, on a way I never understand. Luckily I remerber the conclusion. I will try to born a girl, but a boy is also ok. I'm tolerant, but sorry! Sorry! No bachelor!


  1. Ahha, it's really a little bit stream of consciousness when I read it a second time...

  2. Now Ingrid, tell me, what gave you the idea of posting that particular photo in connection to Mr Li's Bachelor story...? ;-)

  3. AnB: I actually think these two guys probably HAVE wives. On the other hand, if they don't, I also think that they AREN'T two of the Bachelor's of Arts that Little Encyclopedia Li mentioned above! My suggestion for the 30 million bachelors in China is to get off their high horse and start dating Western women! When are you coming?
