[Korea] Overreaction or Justice?

THIS STOPS ME FROM COMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE…….This is so Asian.

From ‘Ask A Korean’ blog (Which I recommend):

http://askakorean.blogspot.com/2011/05/ask-korean-news-please-dont-do-this.html

The third most read article on ultra-popular Korean news site Naver was about some ‘foreigners’ who drank beer and played cards on the undeground:

A link to the original website for anyone who can read Korean:

http://www.ohmynews.com/NWS_Web/view/at_pg.aspx?CNTN_CD=A0001563615

.

First of all, I’m sure this is not anti-foreigner prejudice although it is not uncommon in Korea.

I was barely suprised that it was a popular news story (which suggests they were highly unhappy/suprised by their behaviour).
However, I was surprised by the fact that Korean-Americans were also disgusted by these people’s actions.

I have seen people drink and play cards on different forms of public transportation around the world. I would have agreed with ‘The Korean’ if the subway was completely full and they people were vying for airspace. Thus, I am surprised by the reaction of a man who has lived in a western culture since he was 16. If you look at the comments in the blog post, many others seem to agree with ‘The Korean’.

Note: I am also surprised this was a big enough event for someone to write a news article about.

Welcome to Hogwarts – The Sorting Hat

THIS STOPS ME FROM COMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE…….suicide is for mudbloods.

Real Life Sorting Hat:

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart

 

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

 

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil

 

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

Individual

Tuna

Min

 

Leonardo DiCaprio

 

RAVENCLAW

He would be really good at transformations because he’s such a great actor. He’s also creative like Hufflepuff. But his natural smarts put him in Ravenclaw.

GRYFFINDOR

His transfiguration into his character whilst acting would impress McGonagall and Gryffindor. There was also a rumour of him saving a man’s life on the set of ‘Blood Diamond’

Malcolm X

 GRYFFINDOR

 It takes bravery to stand up for what you believe in especially in the face of adversity i.e. breaking off from NOI and still speaking despite death threats

 HUFFLEPUFF

He may have not been loyal to the Nation of Islam (for valid reasons), but he was loyal to his beliefs and ‘his people’

Snooki
(Jersey Shore)

 SQUIB

She comes from an Italian background and can’t speak the language. Therefore she is a squib.

 HUFFLEPUFF

She is loyal to her friends and she will defend them in all circumstances. She is part-goblin.

Xabi Alonso
(Real Madrid)

HUFFLEPUFF

He plays fair and works hard.

MUGGLE

He looks like a muggle.

Robert Langdon
(The Da Vinci Code)

RAVENCLAW

Although I’m highly tempted to say Muggle purely because looking into symbols is not that cool to grant him a place in Hogwarts.

RAVENCLAW

Smart, highly qualified, calm and passionate. Does not have an extreme/volatile personality trait.

Gandhi
(From Gandhi: The Movie)

HUFFLEPUFF

Patient. Civil disobedience anyone?

SLYTHERIN

He liked to sleep next to naked teenage girls.

Kids Say The Funniest Things

THIS STOPS ME FROM COMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE…….as Oscar Wilde says ‘we get more stupid as we get older’

[Guest writer: Pep]

hi kids

Since Michael Barrymore left the world of show business there has been something missing in everyone’s lives. Kids say the funniest things. Fortunately I have the next best thing: actual quotes from actual kids in actual classrooms. I hope they are as funny written down as they were when overheard.

“How do you cut a tomato?”

“Mangina! Mangina!”

“Miss, what’s masturbation?”

“I’m giving up religious views for lent”

“Teleport, teleport, teleporting fat guy” (sung)

“If I get a nose job will my kids have my old nose or my new nose?”

“Toupee machines? Do they even do them anymore?”

“FRIDAY, FRIDAY, GOTTA GET DOWN ON FRIDAY” (sung by class)

“Slap the fatty! Just do it, kid!”

“”When I was asleep and sleep-walking I went into my mum’s room and weed on her”

“hypotenu…hypote…potty training!”

“It’s all fun and games until someone gets a yeast infection”

Acceptance Speech – Thank you!

THIS STOPS ME FROM COMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE…….100 is divisible by 25. 

Thank you for helping reach the 100 mark. It is what I dreamed of since I was a little boy and I can’t tell you how great it is to finally reach my life goal.

There are so many people I would like to thank. But how can I thank every single person who has had a positive or negative influence on my life? So I’m sorry if you have been omitted:

·         I would like to thank my mother for taking lots of multivitamin pills whilst she was pregnant. I think the vitamin D gave me this incredible brain of mine.

·         I would like to thank all the haters. Haters are gonna hate but whatever that doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

·         I would like to thank my gigantic and incredibly hard-working behind the scenes staff, this couldn’t have happened without you.

·         I would like to that the inventor of spellcheck.

·         I would like to thank my lawyers for giving us a 23-1 record on beating lawsuits.

·         I would like to thank my barber for keeping my ‘head-suit’ looking slick.

·         Finally, I would like to thank America for ‘doing what you do’.

 

I love all of you in different amounts

Peace out
