Today's drive to work was a gauntlet of frustration:

- Pull up at 4-way intersection, where I must yield to traffic. I want to go straight so I wait for
  a gap in the traffic on the road I'm  driving through and for the car facing me to turn left.
  It's a quick wait, usually not more than 10sec, to get a gap. The driver behind me, who
  wants to turn right, is incredibly impatient and can't wait the 10sec for me to go straight so
  he/she tries to force their way on my right, this driver is in a massive 4X4 and the road is
  pretty darn narrow, it's not possible for two cars to drive side by side, in the same lane.
  The driver is forcing their way on my right, coming very close to my car, the car in front of
  me is turning and this asshat is too busy to notice.
  Not  only is Einstein forced to drive on the pavement, scraping his rims, to get on my inside but
  he/she turns right at the same time as the car in front of me turns left. The block each other
  and I shake my head, drive around the car in front and go on my way.
 
 

- Entering another narrow road, with car parked on both sides, obstructing the view into the
  sidestreets. I'm always very careful on this road as drivers from the side streets should stop
  , or at least slow down, to make sure there's no oncoming traffic, yet rarely do. Obviously,
   an Equus  comes charging through one of the side streets, and would've smashed into me if
   I wasn't driving 30km under the speed limit.

- Obviously feeling left out, the pedestrians decide to make their contribution. I'm driving
   down the same narrow road where I was nearly cut in twain, by an Equus. This HS kid is
   walking down road, very close to the middle, engrossed in his phone. I slowly begin to drive
   around him, but he's so oblivious to his surroundings that he begins walking skew and into
   the path of my car. I hoot.... nothing, I'm driving around him, pushing on my hooter and
   he comes within about 30cm of my car, his head doesn't leave his phone. He hasn't
   noticed that he nearly walked into traffic.

-  A member of team cyclists decide to have a crack at it. After finishing War and Peace, while
   waiting for the traffic light to turn green, I move off and as I'm changing to 2nd, this
   cyclist just decides to change into my lane, making me slam the brakes to avoid impaling
   his silly old ass. Trot music blaring from a radio in the basket of his bike, he decides to
   over into another lane, forcing oncoming traffic to slam the brakes as well. He gets the
   special AWDGF award (Ajushi Who Doesn't Give a F)

- Finally, before I can pull into the school parking lot, the entrance is blocked by parents, in
  their cheap little 4X4s who refuse to drop their kids and move off, opting to drop their kids,
  give them a 30min pep talk, then consider moving off. The school traffic guy goes up to their
  cars telling them to move and the pretty much just ignore him.

F*, I hate driving here.

Come to my town mate. There is a roundabout with a giant sign on it that says 'cars on the roundabout have right of way and oncoming traffic must yield'. I've lived here 3 years and never seen a single car yield to a car on the roundabout. The worst part is the cars going around the roundabout stop to let people on.

Here comes Scarn, car on roundabout going around. I yield like the model citizen I am. Car on roundabout stops to let me on. I yield. Car behind me blasts horn. I ignore him. Don't move. Car on roundabout doesn't move. 3 way shootout on the roundabout ensuing. Car behind me blasts horn again. Scarn, becoming seriously disillusioned with mankind winds down window and points at the giant ****** aforementioned sign. Car on roundabout edges forward and moves on taking the hint. Car behind blasts horn again. Scarn pulls onto round about right next to sign, comes to a grinding halt and points at sign with middle finger. Car behind blasts horn and chases me down the street. Scarn pulls into mom's touch parking lot and gets out car. Villian in car who blasting horn suddenly has a case of oh shit, i done fucked up now and decides to keep on driving to nowheresville. Scarn walks into mom's touch and orders a Jalapeno chicken fillet burger with fries to go. Gets in the car and contemplates the drive home and the infamous roundabout that is waiting.

Mom's Touch is the best domestic fast food in the entire country. It's so, so good.

in my neighborhood in my provincial city they are in the process of replacing two 4-way stops that currently have traffic lights with roundabouts. these are two of the busiest intersections in this area.

once they're done i might go down there and park my ass outside a convenience store and just watch and laugh. it should be good entertainment.

The weather forecast has said it's gonna rain on Friday since freaking Tuesday. But the students are supposed to go on a picnic tomorrow... I was told I wouldn't have any classes because of the picnic, just show up to desk warm... I'm really not optimistic that it's gonna happen. ):

Why, just why, do people prefer the mind-numbing boredom of doing nothing all day over what is actually fairly easy work?

I don't always prefer it. But I'm abnormally tired this week, and I have to go out of town the next 3 weekends. So it would be nice to have a day to myself to do lesson planning at a chill pace...

When you buy life insurance, they don't ask you how you take your coffee, but they do ask if you smoke.

I used my real name as my waygook name and as my reddit name. Yes, I acknowledge that I'm a retard. Taeyang changed it here, but I had to scrap my two year, triple gold, 15 000/18 000 karma account on reddit. Someone on r/Korea recognised me from waygook and was causing me problems.

Scrapped and renewal. C'est la vie.

DDJ and MGL are the exact same thing, save makgeolli is filtered with a bag and dongdongju is siphoned from the top down, so you might get more errant rice grains ending up in your glass.

Same process throughout when it comes to actually preparing and fermenting (the key parts).

I feel like the ones that go down the gullet are hardly as bad as the one's that get lodged in my eye. This time of year it happens at least once per run.  And I'm a prolific sweater, so by the time I get home I have dozens upon dozens of nalpari drowned and pasted on my neck, arms, and face. It's a massacre.
