Comments from Sina Weibo:

盖拉多-:

Wang Sicong: Dad, this train and subway… Dad: Buy!

[Note, Wang Sicong is a well-known fu er dai, the only son of billionaire Wang Jianlin of Dalian Wanda Group.]

英语沙龙孙梓晋:

Feels like it’d be rolling along and then suddenly transform.

树庄这孩子:

If this were in our China, you’d have to wipe off the dust off it every two days.

水深十二呎:

If the Heavenly Kingdom [government] were to make this, it’d be cursed and berated to death, for being flashy but not practical, wasting taxpayers’ money, an image project.

ii暴走萝莉:

[拜拜] Other people’s subway.

你的小王子跑到哪里:

Am I the only person who thinks the exterior looks like a coffin…?

闭家嫂-韩:

@Wang Sicong: Buy?

田田么:

First of all, this is a tram, not a subway. Second, this is a concept, not the production model. Finally, the manufacturer said they can only start production at 2017 at the earliest. [拜拜] [拜拜]

sunsuq:

If it doesn’t go into operation next year, the Weibo user [original poster] promises to delete his account.

超意兴守望者-赵铁根儿:

I feel like if a robbery occurs on this train car, even a small knife would become a laser gun.

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
