Fact is, you just sound like you don't like animals and that's totally cool too. But you're going about this in a really egotistical and arrogant way. And that's the uncool part.

Fact is, the point I was making is clearly over your head.  What’s really “uncool” is your simplistic reduction of argument and clear pivot straight toward an ad hominem fallacy.  Sad.

I like how out of everyone here and the rest of my argument, you took me saying "cool" and "uncool" so hard you had to reply literally only to that and call it sad.

Sad.

I haven't had boshintang for a while. If anybody has a dog they need adopting, shoot me a PM.

And that is why using an ad hominem at the end of your argument delegitimizes and voids every point you've made prior.  Glad you picked up on that.  But you're right, I should reply to more posts, thanks.

I don't have a pet here, and wouldn't want to get one and leave it alone in the apartment all day. Gotta say though, this long, late night post says a lot more about you than these pet owners you are projecting onto.

...8:39 PM is considered late?  :huh:  죄송합니다 할머니, I will try to post earlier next time.  Fighting!

Instead of killing animals on the street, which there are many things wrong with that but sanitation being one if we ignore personal morality here, isn't going to fix a broken food system.
Who said on the street? Round them up and take em to some local butchery/processing

Point, Mr. DeMartino.

Actually to reply to this you misunderstood me, both of you haha

I didn't mean "kill them on the street" I meant "animals from the street" and sanitation meaning diseases and parasites that strays and ferals quite often have.

And btw Hodor I don't have any issue with you on a personal level.

OP: Wow, that was one lengthy bitter tirade.  The fact that you've thought that much about what's involved with foreigners owning a pet, ironically suggests that you are in deep need of companionship.

Was it really THAT long?  :rolleyes: Can’t one have companionship AND deep thoughts?  Not everyone finds a companion and automatically empties their skull of all thought and reflection.  You'd be amazed at the arguments and reasoning you can think of while walking down a stank-ass hallway every day.

Neither I, you Bingsu.   8)

However, if this is the case, which it seems to be.. The point awarded for brilliant trolling has been hereby revoked and the match deemed a forfeiture from both sides.  Better luck next time.

My wife has always had a dog. When we moved here, our elderly (8 yo) Bernesse Mountain Dog went to live with my SIL.
We saw a dog as being not compatible with our expat adventure (more so for a 80 lb lap-dog!)
Small apartment, contract uncertainty, no off-leash outdoor time, and vacation travel considerations have stopped us from getting a dog here. The new muzzle laws make us glad we resisted.

The other issue the OP brings up is important too - there is a risk of becoming a "crazy cat lady/gent" if the pet replaces human companionship.

Even introverts need *some* human contact outside of work.

It's totally cool to get a pet here if you're responsible. Now having the hallway on your floor smell like sh*t is a big nono.

Update: the guy sprayed Axe(?) up and down the hallway today.  I mean, I didn't see him do it.. it could have been one of my other neighbors. Not sure if it's worse or better.

Hi, Turtle. Nice to meet you.

Not sure what I did to deserve that, but if you don’t mind, I prefer the term ‘gammon’.

Perhaps something I said during one of your previous incarnations? :afro: :afro: :afro:

Start her up; I’d be curious to see what kind of responses that might get, too.

Well you're quite the character, aren't you?  :undecided:

Why do you want to be addressed as `gammon` ?  8)

Don’t worry, alls I got is French’s, and it’s not going anywhere near sausage; I’m saving it for a nice ham mustard glaze.

Still baffled, but I’ll leave it at that~
