It's too stupid to even explain

I'm not really sure how thinking "they didn't actually use the gas ovens to kill the jews" doesn't automatically preclude one as a potential romantic partner

I didn't think I could be even more confused about moonbrie  :laugh:

Was it two open relationships (one with a guy back home and one with a girl in Korea) or were you just cheating on your boyfriend from back home with the girl here?

I have a boyfriend in America
I had a girlfriend in America
They both knew about each other, no secrets
My girlfriend got a crush on a guy, I was supportive until I found out he was a racist holocaust denier, told her I couldn't continue to be with her if she chose to continue being associated with him, she decided to enter a relationship with him anyways

I have a best friend in Korea
Everyone THINKS we are dating because we are very close
We actually probably would've dated if I was monogamous and staying more than a year
But we're not dating

You are going to find out that your best friend in Korea doesn't believe in the Middle Ages.  :laugh: :laugh:

I do a lot of form-filling in my job, so I decided to buy a date stamp so help speed things up and reduce errors.

The stamp was labelled as 5 mm.

Apparently that is the width of the numbers.

   Well, technically he's correct: they were gas (hydrogen cyanide) showers, and the corpses were then disposed of in crematory ovens afterwards.

    But I'm pretty sure that's not what he meant. Holocaust deniers always confuse me: the Nazi's were meticulous in their record keeping. There are literally entire libraries filled with recorded confessions, documentation, logistics, etc. When the victims, the perpetrators, and boat-loads of 3rd parties all claim the same thing, why in the name of God do people try to wave it off as fictions, exaggerations etc?  :huh: :rolleyes:

You learn something new every day. That wasn't an exact quote though lol

Here's one though: "im not a looney and yet i think i am quite sharp and can assure you with 1000 percent certainty with my life that the Holocaust is a complete and total hoax"

nothing I can do but shake my head, I knew my gf was a bit dim but I didn't know she was foolish enough to get sucked in by someone like that

So. I registered to take the TOPIK test in April for TOPIK I. I have like two months to study and get ready for it.

Is this possible? I can speak passable simple conversation Korean, but I've never had any formal education.
There are practice tests online. But they stopped posting them at the end of 2015. They aren't particularly difficult and the lower level one focuses on comprehension of simple conversations/grammar. I think just simple-present and simple-past tenses. There is also a list of vocabulary that might appear on the test.

I say possible if you learn a few vocab words a week and practice conjugation with verbs. Good luck.

I hate going into a stall and finding the toilet seat up. I know this is supposed to mean they've cleaned the toilet, but then I see urine stains on the underside of the seat, and I don't get why those don't get cleaned right along with the bowl?

So anyway, I karate kick it back down.

Depends. How long have you lived in Korea? Seven years? Passing the beginner level TOPIK is possible if you looked at Korean study books along the way. That test is way easier than the intermediate one. Still a bit challenging though. 열공! 화이팅!

Yeah, seven years, ish. I'm totally comfortable talking with my coworkers in Korean, and my significant other and I probably speak about 40% Korean, and I'm able to read most of the memos and stuff my school sends out. So, my functional Korean is passable. Certainly not what it should be, but passable.

But like I said, never taken a test in Korean. That's spooky.

Yes, you can definitely do it then. Best advice is read the past papers, I took my test in Jan and so many of the questions had been repeated from previous years.

Its only listening/reading so most of the time you are just choosing which word or sentence sums up what you listened to/ read or putting things in the correct order.

I found the time wasn't enough though, at the end I just winged it because I ran out of time.

Still passed though  ;D I also had the flu at the time!

I do not understand. Which happens often. But my school are insisting that I give them a letter of resignation, even though it is the end of my contract. Why? It jut seems illogical to me. I signed the paper saying I am not renewing. I am moving to a different town with a different school. Why should I sign a resignation letter? Korea is so confusing sometimes.

That sounds like it has potential to cut off benefits you would receive upon completing your contract.

Tread carefully.

If it's PS I would be less worried.

Exactly what my concern is. Have told them I will not sign anything. It is a PS but there have been a bunch of weird things done by this school that have previously caused some problems so I have just not signed it. I will keep "forgetting" it at home until they go away.

Why would you design a drawer that only opens 1/3 of the way. It's borderline useless when I have to use a flashlight to see what's in there.

When I felt like I was melting last summer I vowed to never complain about the cold this winter, but I've changed my mind. At least when it's hot I can move my fingers, so I'm going to complain about the cold and not the heat.
