Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

"A sophisticated pea-shooter with a range up to five hundred hards and deadly accuracy in close quarters. Blown transversely to confuse the enemy, it can be dismantled into three small pieces, for easy concealment."

A flute is an instument made of siver and produces a tone that is the highest in a band(tonewise that is, although if you don't breathe properly, you get light-headed and start acting funny).

A flutes range varies on the experience of the person playing it.

A flute is concert pitch, which means you don't have to transpose

The best instrument in the world. People like to make fun of it for the whole American pie thing and how high it is, but they're really just in awe of its supreme glory! You know that saying, about jealous people? Yeah.

Anyway flutes are generally made out of metal (silver, nickel, gold, platinum, alloys, etc) although Baroque flutes are often made out of wood. Flutes can play lower than most people expect.

Did I mention it's prettyful?
One day, flutes will take over the world. Until then I'll just sit here and cry.
