Luckily I don't live in a Korean village...

And I guess I'm happy Koreans are totally desensitized to this kind of stuff because everyone acts like nothing even happened.

Some video here if it will work for you...

Much more troubling are wild boars. Apparently "Wild boars are showing up on highways and in the middle of Seoul."

And it's because of climate change...

Here is the best part...

"The ministry announced a policy yesterday to let citizens capture more boars, from three to six per person, and said it would distribute traps."

Time to get my boar license I guess!

Yeah... Koreans aren't exactly polite.

They are hosting some G20 shit that I know nothing about, nor care about. There are police and special security guards in all the subway stations. And lots of comical ads like this that should be up all the time, not only for the G20 Summit...

And on a totally different subject...

Here is a video of an old grandma that attacked a teenage girl on the subway.

Apparently the girl crossed her legs and got a little dirt on grannies pants, then granny got angry. Girl apologized but grandma kept mouthing off. Girl apologized again. Granny still running her mouth. So the girl got snotty and started talking back to granny in the low form of Korean (the language has different levels of respect and a young girl should speak a certain way to an older, especially much older person. The girl didn't. Very rude in Korea). Then granny went psycho.

Worst thing is that everyone around just watched. This is kinda what Koreans do.

I saw a man at the subway station pull back and slap a woman in the face. She was holding his blazer and wouldn't give it to him. Both shouting. So he slapped her again, and again.

Just like the Koreans, I didn't do anything but watch. But I can't understand what they are saying so I don't know the situation. For all I know she may have fucked his brother or best friend or something and (yup gonna say it) may have deserved a slap.

But, I don't know. But the Koreans know. And always choose to do nothing and just watch. Kinda sad.

(dunno why this shit doesn't fit... oh well...)

Started jamming with the remaining members of my band so we're now a 3 piece.

Had a few names being kicked around... Buckmaster Circle... The Stinkeyes... Jackshit...

Jackshit has won the race until we think of something better... I kinda like it but a little juvenile still...

Might get back on the horse...

It's been a long time since I wrote anything here.

Guess things kinda got pretty routine and there wasn't a whole lot that seemed interesting enough to waste my time writing about.

That being said, there probably is a ton of shit I could rant on about here so I might try to get motivated to come back more often.

So what is happening now in Korea.

Some professional Korean basketball team came to my school last week and donated these awesome basketball nets to the school.

Glass backboards and all.

Too bad they are outside on a sand playground.

I went to the corner store near my school the day they were there and I went to the side which is my smoking spot. One of the pro basketball players beat me to my position and was having a smoke there. Tried to talk to the guy but ZERO english. Tallest Korean I've ever seen.

And my band...

Terry, guy in my band, is gone back to Canada today so me and the remaining band members are gonna start a new band... called either "The Stinkeyes" or "Jackshit".

Our drummer thinks Stinkeyes has some kind of anal connotation that I don't immediately pickup on. Yet, he said to me "Man I got a real good band name: 'The Black Joke'.

He was serious.

I think that has more of an overtone of 'nah man can't use that name at all.'

I'm home in Newfoundland now.

Too much food all the time. I can't move right now.

Awesome weather since I've been here too.

Time to lie down and get un-full...

Oink oink oink...

I ain't even down with this whole swine flu panic.

One of my co-teachers is going to Canada for a training course and she's totally worried about 돼지 프루 (um, pig flu).

So, I showed her this just to be an asshole about it.

Media goes hog wild over swine flu: Millions die

You cannot protect yourself from Media Flu simply by covering your mouth. You must also cover your eyes and ears.

You cannot protect yourself from Media Flu simply by covering your mouth. You must also cover your eyes and ears.

In the two months since the first case of swine flu popped up in Mexico on April 13, we’ve been inundated with media reports regarding our imminent demise.

They said we’re all going to get it. We’re all going to die. Borders were closed. People were quarantined. Trade was halted. We desperately need billions of dollars in research grants. We need a vaccine to keep us from going the way of the dinosaurs. It’s the greatest health disaster since 20,000,000 people died of the Spanish Flu of 1918. Oh, the humanity.

Let’s get back to reality now. Do you know how many people have actually died of swine flu worldwide in the last two months (according to the World Health Organization)?

A. 1,440,000
B. 144,000
C. 14,400
D. 1440
E. 144

ANSWER: If you chose E, you are correct. A grand total of just 144 people have died of Swine Flu worldwide. In contrast, WHO says the three main strains of flu cause somewhere between 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year globally. That’s somewhere between 685 and 1370 per day.

Obviously, it’s much easier to fall victim to Media Flu than Swine Flu. But Swine Flu is easier to cure and much less deadly.

Then she said "But it is a pandemic!!"

I can't find the link now but apparently the definition of pandemic used to include something like "...kills a shitload of people...", like a million or something, but now it doesn't..

Ah, found it...

The WHO Finally Gets Its Pandemic!
By Michael Fumento

For the last several years, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been claiming another flu pandemic is a "when not an if." Of course, it was talking about avian flu. But avian flu refused to comply, for reasons I've given in numerous articles beginning in 2005. So now they've seized upon swine flu to declare their pandemic.

Never mind that the mildest pandemic of the 20th century killed at least a million people worldwide and so far swine flu has killed far fewer people since it began in early April than die each day from old-fashioned seasonal flu. (144 total swine flu deaths compared to 685-1,370 daily seasonal flu deaths).

Further, in the country where the outbreak began, Mexico, swine flu peaked way back in late April. The worldwide crest can't be far behind.

So how could the WHO do it? Simple. In 2005 it rewrote the definition of "influenza pandemic," which formerly required "enormous numbers of deaths and illness." Under its new definition, a handful of cases and zero deaths can nonetheless constitute a "pandemic." And that's pretty much what we've seen. The term "influenza pandemic" has simply lost any truly useful meaning.

Thanks, WHO, for putting politics and self-interest above the interests of public health.

I'm not sure if it's true (read the writers bio and seems he may know what he's talking about) but I don't care. I just wanted to make her stop freaking out about it and she did, at least to me.
