Serious question. Why do homosexuals always say "significant other" or "partner" instead of boyfriend/girlfriend? The vast majority of (western) people do not care and are not going to be shocked.

I have a Xiaomi Air 2 in the mail right now, as we speak, currently.

It's a present to myself.

They're great. If you live in a one room, your air will get super pure. If it's like a three room or something you might need a little more umph. Congratulations, though!

I live in a shoebox. I'll have the cleanest goddamn air in the country. hahahaha

Why is the ground beef here so grisly?  It has hunks of nastiness in it and it stinks when fried.
i buy this one. it's good

Wow. I just did the math on this.... it would cost roughly 31,000 won for one pound of ground beef.  Ouch.  No wonder I never buy ground beef here.   :cry: :cry: :cry:

I bought this one ( and a second for my inlaws for when my daughter is there).  It is designed for microdust.  What is more, it has a charcoal filter for smells, and both are washable, so you don't need to replace the filters and spend a small fortune once or twice a year.  It is the upgrade to the 5500-2 model, and that was recommended online in a few reviews as the best purifier for samll areas.  No app witg it, but the "plasmawave" means that the technology it uses emits no ozone or other harmfull stuff.

I like the idea of washing the filters vs buying new ones:

I think your maths may be off, 500g for 6900 + postage

A pound is 454g making this about 6300 + postage a pound, this is possibly the cheapest beef I've seen in Korea (unless my maths is off)

Just a referral to people who are interested, there's an FB group called "Clean Air Ideas In Korea" with many members who are on top of this sort of thing and are incredibly knowledgeable about what's currently available. You can take a look in there and ask more detailed questions. They're really helpful and are very good about answering questions in general.

It's also way better quality than my local butcher. I just buy a few packs at once and keep them in the freezer. If anyone has any links to other cheaper minced beef deals, feel free to post them...

This guy doesn't mince around.  Straight to the beef.  Lean as a butcher's dog.

I find out this morning that I'll have Open Class this Friday in my Afterschool Class, and there will be parents there.
We're off tomorrow, and I'm at my travel school Thursday.

I have a plan, but I wish I'd get more notice.  I guess I should be thankful I got told before Friday.  :rolleyes:

That's what I get for a quick glance instead of paying close attention. I just saw 100g next to the price.... I didn't see they list the price per 100g. Wow. So this is a great deal! I'll definitely be taking advantage of this! Thanks!!!! :-D

I have money on my gmarket account already, and don't have a coupang account set up. So it'll be easier for me this way :)

things that would make me not vote for you:

- illegally parking your 'voting' van
- blaring music really early or late at night. actually, blaring music any time
- singing
- dancing
- blocking the subway stairs while trying to hand me a leaflet
- spamming my phone with SMS messages
- cold calling me at all hours

I found some Australian beef that's edible as steak, if a bit chewy, but also not so good that you feel bad using it for curry or soup or whatever. It was like 5,900 per 400g. Let me see if I can find the link.

Another rant...  a new Co-T that never listens to anything i say and keeps saying "Ya -ya" after everythingand just focuses on getting his message across, anything i say after that he pays no attention to.  He assumes everything is a yes or no question, says his annoying "ya-ya" and then gives me a wide fcking smile afterward. When i wait for a proper response, he looks at me with a confused look making me repeat it.

Today I asked a simple question which was not a yes or no question, I know I spoke loudly, slowly and clearly 'cause even the kindergarten teacher with an extremely low level of English understood and responded and guess what i got from him? an answer that had absolutely nothing to do with what i asked!

On top of that, he has no idea what personal space is. Whenever he has to say anything to me, he has to come right up to my face and say it softly. He does this a lot during class where he's at the other end of the class and I have to patiently wait for him to walk around just to ask me a stupid question.  I lean away hoping he'll get the hint and reply loud enough for him to hear so he doesn't need to move closer, but he only asks me to repeat myself and then moves closer. 

URG he frustrates me so much!!!

He's a new co-T and i really want to form a good working relationship with him, but he's so damn annoying!!!
