my friend works with a chinese guy (in england). the chinese guy is always installing chinese software which, he believes, speeds up the computer and makes it safer. it drives the IT guy insane. his computer constantly needs to be cleaned out, yet the chinese guy insists on reinstalling this bloatware/spyware, but blames then blames the hardware when the computer slows down or becomes unusable.

so.. it's not just korea :/

actually, my friend thought he was korean (he used to live in korea and was used to korean shitty software) for the longest time

I'm done. y'all can have it.
If waygook.org forums is going to be the one place in your tiny worlds and problematic misogynistic lives where you can gang up to control
and defend your toxic masculinity together...have at it.

I'm out.

   Hey all, I moved the discussion about communications between gender to here because there was a lot of discussion on the topic and it uh, deserved it's own page, but also because some of it was pretty heated and I didn't want the inevitable arguments to wreck this thread.  :smiley:

Was a bit weird playing playstation with some friends in their late-teens and them never having heard of smashing up phone boxes to get a roast beef or an apple for energy.   :undecided:  I mean what are they learning from games these days?  Stealth?  Who doesn't like to smash up a letterbox or phone box and get a whole roast chicken?  Mmmmm, chicken....   :-*

All the games are about healing like Wolverine these days. Shooting games are the biggest offender of this. Taking straight sniper bullets to the chest and healing in 15 seconds.

I do miss some old Arcade elements! Beat 'em ups were at their peak then

oh yeah!  Yuzo Koshiro is an absolute legend.  Did loads of stuff.

My particular favourite from Streets of Rage 2.  From 1992 as well.  Well before its time.

Gotta love a Friday double lesson. Only student shows up 40 minutes late. Proceeds to lay her head on the desk and stare blankly at me for next 60 minutes. I love Fridays.

A student came into class wearing a Smiths, "Queen is dead" shirt. I've been burnt too many times before with people people wearing shirts of things that they didn't know anything about, so i contained by excitement. I asked him nonchalantly "do you like The Smiths?" But,no. He didn't know it was band.
I guess uniqlo or something has put Smiths album covers on t-shirts this season. There are a lot worse things that could be put on the front of a shirt.

Cue this summer's Korean blockbuster: "The Smiths *not starring Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt" and hordes of middleschool students referring to each other as "this charming man (regardless of gender)", and constantly asking you "how soon is now?"

If only more people could learn this trick, this forum, and the internet as a whole, would be so much better.

I mean, most students don't get to choose their own clothes. They just wear whatever their mother buys for them.

I like the Uniqlo / Top 10 / wherever collab merch. The majority of the people buying it may just do it because they think it looks cool, or vaguely recognize it, but for the smaller percentage of people who actually like that brand / artist / IP, then it's some nice, affordable licensed merch.

I teach university age 19-28. I wouldn't even ask if I saw a small child wearing it. But this guy was in his early-mid 20s. I thought it might be worth a shot.
