2015 has given us another crazy summer. A heat wave has swept across east Asia. The road surface is a natural hot pan—the sun can serve you breakfast if you throw eggs and ham onto the road.
Let’s take a look.
#1: Tree branch
Pros: Easy to get; free; light-weight; environmentally friendly, and easily disposable.
Cons: Probably only one use; limited coverage; it looks lame…
#2: Giant straw hat
Pros: Wide coverage; durable; could share it with a friend; has other uses, like a rug for the floor.
Cons: Blocks the side view; style-wise, it’s not working for him.
#3: Cardboard box sun visors
Pros: Recyclable and environmentally friendly; many DIY design possibilities; light and handy; available for multiple users, turns a motorbike into a car, boom.
Cons: Not durable; limited coverage; looks like a halloween costume; not recommended for adults.
#4: Bed sheet… or table cloth
Pros: Covers entire body except feet; light; breezy; readily available; literally no construction necessary or DIY expertise.
Cons: Risk of catching sheet in bike chain, wheel, or passing traffic; no face shade; looks insane.
#5: Lotus leaf outfit
Pros: All natural; smells good; flexible DIY choices; makes you look like a cool character from the Monkey King; may attract pond fairies.
Cons: Not durable; one time use; hard to attach to the body; may attract frogs.
#6: Bee keeper’s outfit
Pros: Fullest coverage possible; durable.
Cons: Sweaty; looks like creepy stalker.
