I'm walking around and I'm seeing graffiti everywhere. I'm not talking some mural on an underpass or artsy graffiti on a public surface, I'm talking private property- stores and walls. Also, if you're 16 I get it. Over the age of 23?

What the heck is up with that? What kind of mental disorder or completely selfish outlook must you have on life to think that's okay? Why do people do this? Why do people condone this?

Do you think this is acceptable behavior? What's your justification for it? Should our punishments be more severe? Here I think the punishment is those caught should have their house trashed or something.

Funny, I remember you questioning a while ago why the way a city looks  should be important to anyone. When we were talking about how ugly Seoul is. So it seems you do think the physical appearance of one's outside environment affects quality of life?

demartian, contradicting himself?? surely, not.  the end of the world is nigh.  only three of the horsemen arrived so far, they're still waiting on the other, apparently he's still in Neighbraska.

We're not talking the appearance, we're talking the violation of private property. If I want a drab grey apartment, it's my right.

It's the same concept- in both cases someone thinks they know better how a place SHOULD look and they think others should be changed to make them happy. Selfishness.

Where is this?
I've always found Korea to be pretty graffiti free.

Ehh. Less so sure, but it still can happen. Even in smaller cities.

There are two things in life I cannot get my head around, graffiti and smoking. Why would you want to deface property and natural things like mountain caves? Why would you suck smoke into your lungs? Beats the hell out of me.
Everything is not as it seems.

No one owes you anything.... get over it.

NEVER think a failure is the end of the world, it is the beginning of a new opportunity.

There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

Right, so you're objecting to graffiti but not because it looks bad but because of the principle. That's like a deaf person complaining about people playing their music too loud.

:laugh:    So rude! Look at all the others: they came all the way from Haystings, Stallingrad, and Whinnypeg, and yet they still made it on time! Somebody's not getting a lump of sugar!! >:(

Yeah, it's pretty rare in Korea. Do you really think it's increasing or are you just noticing it more? There's quite a bit around my neighbourhood, but the area is "famous" for it, and the majority of it does kinda contribute to the local character, though there is a fairly large supply of illegible tags and random profanity, too.

    Yeah, it can be a complete nightmare! And yet, they still expect you to trot out and teach like normal. Considering how little that accomplishes, it's total foally on their part! You'd think they would understand that it would behoof them to get somebody else to fillyn for sick teachers!

Ah, the 5th and 6th horsemen of the apocalypse who quit the crew before they became famous. I'm surprised mention of them cropped up: most people haven't herd of them!  :wink:

I'm not sure. It might be confirmation bias. I was "triggered" if you will by walking to work this morning and seeing some paint crew going over a small villa's wall with a new coat because the old wall was covered in rather new graffiti.

Maybe but that picture which automatically slid down into a shredder was pretty awesome.
