Everyone is so pissed off and angry today.

My own week started off pretty lousy, but I'm sitting here in the peace and quiet, and even the manure-scented breeze is kind of nice right now. Better than what's going on outside of my classroom.

Maybe tomorrow I can have life affirmation.

So wait, this manure-scented breeze is coming from INSIDE the classroom?

Coming INTO the classroom. I'm sitting next to an open window.

Spoke a little too soon earlier, though, the breeze is now starting to make my eyes crust up, but I can't close the window because the A/C is broken.

So **** it, I'm splurging on a soda today.

I don't understand why they use the same type of voice actors they use for cartoons to dub over non-animated films.

It's hard to take what I assume is supposed to be a great viking warrior very seriously when he sounds like a villain from Spongebob.

But that's what I get for accidentally downloading a dubbed movie instead of the subtitled version anyway.

There was a scene in "Jesus de Montréal" where people are working in a dubbing company, dubbing porn. Hilary ensues.

Does anyone else here never discipline students?  Browsing the forum I get the sense that it's something a lot of people get stressed out about and don't know how to handle.

I normally hate the "that's not my job" attitude but disciplining students is something I just never do and always leave it to my coteacher.

Umm, yea I do!  No way am I going to let my students get away with being disrespectful to me or other students.  I made one of my 4th graders cry not to long ago.  Little fink was making the girls cry, so I set his @ss up in the front of the class and chewed him out.  Little twerp.....

If you always leave it to your CT, be prepared for your kids to walk all over you the minute he/she is out of the classroom for a significant amount of time.

What's this????  :huh:

My CT told me about classes that will be cancelled TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE!!

What is going on here?? Have I entered some parallel dimension?? Is the world going to end??

Better prepare yourselves, there's no telling what chaos this time paradox will bring!

Gonna have to give that a look, it might be the only time I can appreciate dubbing is when it's in progress.

Keep your guard up, they might decide last minute that classes are uncancelled.

Plankton belongs in Bikini Bottom, where he should stay. He should leave the vikingnings to the vikings.

I think he'd make an excellent viking. He just needs a beard and a viking helmet. :D

Is anyone else constantly confused about what to throw away and how?

I was told that one bag type was only trash, but I always see the Koreans here throwing recyclable things into it.

And are you or aren't you meant to throw eggs into the food waste??

And what in the hell do I do with ripped up bedding???

Korea this is too coNFUSING

Two big things to keep in mind:

The rules are different between districts (gu)
The written rules you see in English may or may not be decent translations.

Eggs... I put them in food waste. The rules I saw for Seocho-gu say "hard shells" are not permitted, so I don't put clam shells in. I heard another opinion that "anything livestock can eat" is ok; hogs will eat anything, and hens will eat eggshells. I don't think that they use it for livestock feed though.

Just do your best... not even the locals really understand the rules.

Whereas I would consider food waste to be "compost" and therefore allow things like the skin of an onion or an eggshell, it actually goes for pig feed in Korea, hence the no bones, no shells or onion skins.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Does anybody know what to do with dead plants and soil? The heat in my veranda killed most of my plants, so I want to dispose of the dead plants and soil, but not the vases in which they came. My plan is to fill the old vases with artificial plants or some other decoration.
