Seriously – another ‘niche’ social networking website?
I recently heard through the grape vine about Chinese Downhill (Interesting name…) which is supposedly a social networking website that caters to skiers and snowboarders.
Anyone else getting burnt out on the literally THOUSANDS of niche social networking websites?
Where did the name “Chinese Downhill” come from?
In the 1980s ski comedy “Hot Dog: The Movie,” the antagonist proposes a Chinese downhill to resolve all conflicts between himself (the hotshot skier) and the protagonist (not so talented skier/cool guy). After they outline what’s at stake -the girl, rule over the slopes, cash, etc. -the comic-relief Chinese guy leans in and asks “Wha te **** is a Chinese downhir?” (A Chinese downhill is a ski race with a shotgun start -first one to the bottom wins.)
