Fight Against Maturity

Every retired person needs a hobby… but submarines?


A Chinese pensioner has been awarded an official government licence to build submarines. Li Yuming, 68, who has only an elementary school education, has built seven submarines since 2003, reports IC Media.

…The retired shoe maker spends all his free time inventing things: “I like challenges, especially those which seem impossible,” he said.

Li’s first four submarines were not fully seaworthy and the fifth one he built was the first to notch up a successful voyage.
