But... he's describing how his high school crush ran off  with his best mate Pauly F. so obviously he's got to be a bloke unless he's a Duke.

...or I could be a clam smacker...

..maybe I bat for both teams...

...or I could just be a snail...

(we don't have high school in Angleterre, Mr Chips)

My fictional writings are not indicative of my gender.  It's obviously fiction because my BMX (Strika) was ace, end of, no debate, people swooned, get it. 



Feast your eyes on it.  Sex on wheels.  It had a back-pedal back brake.  Imagine that.  You pushed the pedals backward and that made the back wheel brake, both literally and including 'braking' a lot of girl's hearts.

I had a bike way back in the day that also had back-pedal braking. But, unfortunately, it was fixed gear (no free-wheel cog). This meant that if you stopped pedaling and took your feet off the pedals for any reason at all, those pedals were gonna bite you *hard*. My shins were bruised and bloody from age 7 to around 9 when I finally got my revenge on that sadistic contraption!
    The kind of braking I desperately needed was regenerative braking. As in, regenerate my shins....

Anyway, sounds like it all worked out in the end, except the next bike I was saddled with was bright yellow and had a sparkly banana seat.  >:(
Like this, but more sparkly, and without the chain guard ( otherwise, how would the bike gets its daily ration of pant cuffs and shoelaces?)

Damn. For NZ it's been slowly getting better I think. I usually send a mil won back home every month, and I'm getting about an extra $40NZD than about a year ago.

I thought you get less for your money when it's in the toilet, not more? O.o
Regardless, I'm still getting more than a year ago, so I'm happy. :p

Yeah, I knew that the won has dropped in value in the last few months, but I hadn't realized by how much until I sent some money home, too.

You know that you've been in Korea too long (or are planning to) when you no longer bother sending money back to your home country.  :-[

I have to do it sometimes. I have a Korean credit card, however, whenever I come across the extra security thing for it online, it means I can't use it.
There is a phone app you need to use for the extra security thing. But, when I got my credit card, and we were trying to set it up, the lady who helped me with all my paperwork, my Korean friend, and myself couldn't get the app to accept my issue. So, sometimes I have to send money home, transfer it to my debit card, and use that instead haha.

Hold on, you're telling me you don't all live in an 8-pyeong one-room in Noksapyeong provided by 'The Boss'?   No cutlery is provided at the start as it's earned by giving warnings.  After you ban at least four people, you get the code to the door.  Most of the time you just have to hope someone else is in.  When you make level 3, you get a toothbrush.

That would imply that we are being compensated somehow, which, sadly, isn't the case. I do this out of the goodness of my heart, my earnest pursuit of the betterment of my fellow expats, and because I enjoy arguing with people who constantly hold back for fear of the extreme powers of moderation that I wield.

Now please excuse me: it's lunch time, and I really need to fight gagevt for that lump of week old rice that somebody left in the hallway just outside our communal goshiwon.

So you watched Thanos and thought, 'yeh, I'll have some of that, but how?'  You just need the six stones of Waygook.  One is in CO2's smelly shoe in Cheonan, the other deep in Cowboy's Naver Pay account, the other in Vanlslander's Korando in Jeju,  another in Mayorhaggar's jockstrap, the other is next to the tampon in Chinguetti's celebrated complimentary tea box and probably the most difficult is in Aristocrat's 10kg tub of creatine.  Just get them and then you can click....

As I appear to have accidentally punched a hole in the time/space continuum putting all of our past/future selves in jeopardy, it's best if we just try and navigate a wormhole, minus your smelly shoes, coz they don't half pen and ink.

Without context, this read like somebody is having a stroke.
In context, well, uh, are you currently smelling colours?   :shocked:
