Want Cool Friends? Make Your Own.

A Chinese pensioner from Shanxi province (North China) has invented an electric unicycle which he calls “cool friend.”

It took Li Yunian only two months to design and build the electric cycle, which travels at 12 miles an hour and up to 40 miles on a single charge. The retired factory worker hopes to see the cycle mass-produced commercially, and is already working on improvements to the design.

All of which teaches us three important lessons:

1. You are never too old to pursue and achieve your dreams.

2. No matter how weird your ideas may seem to others, they’re surprisingly awesome when you see them reduced to practice.

and finally:

3. If you haven’t got any cool friends, you can always make your own.

Your dreams are waiting for you. Get moving.
