Dude, where's my car?
So there’s this new trend that has hit China like a Tamagotchi on crack. That’s right, I’m talking about those Darth Vader sun visors that you probably have seen Chinese women wearing. These things frighten me. For the most part, I’m not bothered by seeing someone wearing one of these while they’re walking outside at a farmer’s market, or walking the dog. What does bother me is when you see an asian woman wearing one in the car. First off, the visor is dropped down over their entire face, which is not what a traditional visor looks like. This makes it seem like the visor accidentally dropped down and covered their face. Something that running into a wall at an incredible rate of speed might do, for instance. Additionally, the visor is made of thick, dark plastic so you’re not entirely sure that they can actually see through it. Add both of these things to the fact that we’re not entirely certain that asian women in cars can see to begin with, and it makes for a very frightening experience. If someone drives with their turn blinkers permanently on and they can’t seem to stay in between the pretty dotted lines, is a big, thick, black mask really a good idea?
