Korean companies don't really get branding, do they?

This makes it difficult to determine if things are legit.

I just looked up an industrial automation software company one of my suppliers is using. The sales email address is @gmail.com.

Even my one-man-consultancy has a domain name.

Yes, kyndo, I'm more than likely mistaken about the user, but not about the thread.

Cowboy, I would ask for your understanding, I mean, I have nuts on here claiming that I said people deserved to die when I wrote "life is tragic"

Here are the progression of my EXACT comments in the thread of the couple who died:

Quote
How could the police know they were kissing?

The story just doesn't make sense/add up.

Quote
What?  People were watching them make out/kiss, and then didn't help them?

Who would admit to such a thing?

Could there have been foul play?

On another note, everyone handles death differently.

That said, if my wife and I were kissing at 2am on a rooftop and fell to our deaths, I'd hope our friends and family would all be able to share a laugh along with us.

Life is tragic, but...

Quote
More than a bit insensitive to speculate alcohol was involved.

How about waiting for the facts?

Some could just as easily speculate it was a "suicide" pact, which, like the alcohol card, has no basis in truth.

Quote
Eye witnesses, plural?

There was more than one person watching them make out/kiss at 2am?

Again, that simply sounds bizarre.

Can someone explain?

Quote
Are you trying to be a smart a$$?

They are dead, but you want to paint them as "drunk and foolish" without knowing the truth.

Quote
I could be misreading things, but it strikes me as more than a little inappropriate to accuse them of exercising poor judgement, when we don't know the facts and they can't defend themselves.

Users attacked the OP for the title, but what is being thrown around is far worse.

Quote
Another GFM...

I'm a broken record on this issue, but please get insurance.

Passing the hat is all well and good, but this is beyond ridiculous when we all know we are going to die.

Quote
Twinsauras, sorry, but I totally disagree with you.

When I traveled all around Europe at twenty-four, I didn't leave home without travel insurance.  Most don't.

What person in their right mind would?

It cost pennies a day.

Granted, we didn't have GFM back then, when the Internet was in its infancy.

I have no doubt that I am out of touch with you Millennials, but is paying pennies a day so others don't have to pander really that unrealistic?

When personal responsibility and the like are out, the hand soon follows.

That said, it's wonderful to see CBHL coming together and kicking in.

I hope they require/provide all of their members supplemental insurance for their league, as most of their injuries aren't going to be covered by the national plan here.

Quote
Twin,

I get it, which is why I said it was great CBHL are coming together.

Not sure if you are being daft or what regarding insurance, but you get the insurance you need.

If you are an expat foreign resident, guess what?  You can get insurance for that and it's pennies a day.

If you play rugby, while working here, you'd be an absolute fool to not get additional coverage for your recreation.

I'm advocating for people to protect themselves, and you think it's a stretch?

Is bareback back in?

Quote
I know, right?

The nerve of that guy to advocate for people to get supplemental insurance for less than 1,000 KRW per day.

You'd think he gets a commission from the insurance companies by how often he mentions it.

Pecan=no class.

Quote
Internet forums are filled with people with "tact"...

Regardless, it doesn't change the facts.

Odd, some nut is concerned with others being insensitive, and then gets accused as having no class.

Whatever.

Quote
I'll bite.

Yes, apparently so.

Nothing is going to bring those folks back.  I feel for the loss for their family and friends.

Like it or not, life goes on.

For those that are here today, I hope their untimely deaths can serve as a reminder of how fragile life is.

If you don't want to get insured, then don't, but hopefully some will "get it".

Personal responsibility isn't for everyone.

Quote
That's excellent!

Thanks for sharing.

Quote
plan b,

Have you always been this lacking in self-awareness?

Show some class and use some tact.

As it stands, this is all a complete derail of the point of the post, but it CLEARLY shows that I said nothing remotely resembling what has been thrown around.

Millennials and their revisionist history...

I agree with What?What?

You baiting me for any special reason?

I reposted them in their entirety to simply prove that what is being claimed is revisionist nonsense.

Now, you would like to move the goalposts and "generalize" to say that I said something wrong in one of those posts, since I never said "they deserved to die"? Please.

Let the words speak for themselves.

Rant: maybe certain arguments can not be had all over the ranting thread. Create a thread or inbox each other. It displeases me. I do not like being displeased. It is not the arguing thread, it's the ranting/venting thread. Make a pointless argument thread. That would be good. :laugh: :blank: :P


In other news I am being kicked out of my classroom now (they are having a meeting in here with parentals), with nowhere to go. So I am truly just standing in a hallway with bags of my shit for English Art class waiting for an opportunity to grab a classroom.



YES! Like an argument thread - no rules, always disagree, always debate. It would be like Battle Royale, who will survive? but no hard feelings held outside the thread.

I love having a good row sometimes.

What a stupid idea!!!!!! An argument thread!!! This entire website is one big argument! I'm offended by the stupidy and unlettered way in which you have expressed your imbecilic thoughts on having an argument thread!!!!!  My Lord! What is the world coming to???? Give someone a computer and an Internet connection and they all come out of the woodwork, don't they?

Yeah I'm baiting you  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
I never said that. I said you were complaining that a dead couple in their 20s didn't have funeral insurance. AS though that a normal thing for anyone under 40/50 to have purchased. All this while a member of one of their families was in the thread.
Then you act all "Yes, i'm a caveman hoho. you all need safe spaces".

No, you are just a dope.

I want cheese ramen, but the place I enjoy is at the train station which is a 15 minute bus ride away.

I know it's instant ramen, but there's something about that fancy spoon that makes it taste better.

Maybe I'll treat myself.

So we move into a new place that had been occupied by some Korean girls before us. Was pretty okay except there was blood all over the bathroom. No matter how many times I scrubbed, I couldn't get all the bloodstains out. Or the mold. At least there wasn't visible mold in the living areas, though...
:huh:

Sounds like either these girls were into butchering their own meat or butchering people.

Ate a whole batch of chocolate rice crispy treats all by myself within the span of two nights.  Happy to report there is no sign of cancer!
:)

Had any fairy bread lately?

Tried it once and wasn't a big fan, actually.  Looks better than it tastes.  Got plenty of other sources of poison though.

However, posters from the "peanut gallery" start chiming in "wish pecan were dead" etc. :)


I prefer my pecans roasted.   

As for the cancer comment-- it was an off the cuff remark that I did not perceive as actually wishing cancer upon me.  While there are indeed times when I find some of Pecan's comments to be nutty or even tactless, this occasion wasn't one of them and isn't one to get up in arms about.  This would be in the same vein as calling someone's cigarettes "cancer sticks." 

Anyway... a fight club thread sounds like it has potential to be mighty entertaining!  I imagine a great influx in sock accounts.

There used to be one on Expatkorea called 'Fight Club' which worked well.

Bring that here and Pennypie would be hitting me with her Daily Mail, while swigging from her Bacardi Breezer and calling me a tawt.  I'll just be sitting here drinking ovaltine and waiting for Marks and Sparks to open to 'get me bitz'.

I mean, anybody that construed waygook.org user Pecan's cancer comment as being anything beyond a joke is seriously just looking for something to be upset about.

I didn't actually see the comment, I just remember yirj saying later it was something about her getting cancer.

But if it was just a bad joke and not an especially offensive one, something else must've got pecan muted. Time to put our detective hats back on.

One of the things that irritates me more than almost anything else is people complaining about something, being shown a simple solution, ignoring it, and continuing to complain.

It's seriously maddening. People would rather gripe about something than fix it and have nothing to whine about.

I had this experience yesterday with someone. Honestly, I think he was just looking for attention and sympathy rather than an actual solution.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
