I used to troll fanfiction.net. I would post the same story in poor English about a male protagonist sleeping with and impregnating a female protagonist to every fandom and just change the proper nouns to fit each one. Nobody complained until I posted it to the Star Wars page and there everyone went ballistic and reported me. Sometimes you just need to fight the right audience that appreciates you.

Harry Styles is coming to perform next year. So many people are complaining, "WHY IS IT ON A MONDAY?"

Have these people NEVER been to a concert before? Harry isn't going to fly 50 tonnes of equipment, 45 roadies and his army of personnel/management  to Asia so he can do

Sat 1: Tokyo
Sun: Osaka
Sat 8: Seoul
Sun 9: Taipei
Sat 15: Manila
Sun 16: HCMC
Sat 22: Bangkok
Sun23: Singapore

You think Harry Styles wants to rent out 2 floors of a hotel for everyone involved so that they can chill out Mon through Friday?

Sunday wouldn't even work for most people outside Seoul unless artists performed during the day. I've been to a couple of concerts in Shanghai and I find in Asia they usually end in time to get the subway home well before midnight. Also, they don't usually have opening acts so the shows don't drag on like they do in North America.

Spot on. Also, venues here don't really have a huge "Club/Bar" function so there's no real motivation to have you wait around bored forever hoping that you'll spend 9$ on a 330ml Heineken. Get everyone in, watch the show, GTFO.

I went to an NHL preseason game in Shanghai once. The arena didn't have enough staff to serve beer so a couple of fans helped out.

I originally joined for the resources.

And I prefer the Chinese moniker biliwang/比利王 (literally King Billy)

I've just come inside from having a beer on the 2nd tier courtyard garden (no, it's not fancy). I'm wearing shorts and a T.shirt. I sat outside for an hour and a bit before it got just a little chilly. In all my time here, I've never had a beer outside let alone in shorts and a T.shirt, come late November. Usually I pack it in about the 15th of October. Strange climate these days! Also, the mosquitos are alive and well.

Okay, now I know why I'm still killing mosquitos and am able to sit outside in a T-shirt and shorts in the early evenings.

Indeed.

The last month of November, in a town an hour from Daegu (midway from Busan), the temperature was 20 C today (forecasted to be 19, 17, 19, 18... then a cold front mid-next week).

I in the last week got a mosquito bite on the right side of my nose and by my right ear. I dang hope not again until next summer!

Here's a good one.

I went to the corner shop just before, and when I came out a couple of high school age boys stopped me and asked if I would buy them some smokes. Nothing unusual in that. I'm sure many of us get targeted for cigarette shopping every now and then.

Here's the kicker...they also asked me to pay for them. They had no money. I'm still giggling.

Cycled 50km yesterday. Feeling it today goddamn it  :laugh: definitely not as young as I used to be but still fun. Might need to go to a massage parlor tomorrow. Gonna see if it can hire a van for some cycling trips so I can explore some places I wouldn't get to see otherwise.
