I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
Not mutually exclusive, I’m afraid.

I finally managed to finish downloading all four seasons of the "Men in Black: The Series" cartoon show last night.

Took forever, but worth it. This show was ahead of its time. Has a lot of jokes that went over my head as a kid, lol.

You're on a roll with the good cartoons lately. MIB had one of the best opening theme songs and into animation. And the animation itself was really neat.

Another show that had a ton of way-over-the-head jokes that kids wouldn't get at all was Animaniacs. And also the Pinky & the Brain show.

Also, not nearly as good as MIB but completely forgotten and also still pretty good, was the Godzilla animated series based on the 1998 Roland Emmerich movie.

I know a lot of people have had issues with buses refusing to go to certain cities or being shutdown altogether. Has anyone experienced that with the KTX?

Another show that had a ton of way-over-the-head jokes that kids wouldn't get at all was Animaniacs. And also the Pinky & the Brain show.

Gonna have to download those next. I never watched Godzilla, either, but I know my brother loved it. Will give it a go later.

Where can I get a good 1000 pc puzzle? The prices on Gmarket are a bit silly.

Jigsaw puzzles are expensive here. 30-50k won for a good puzzle at your local stationary or book store

One of the hottest groups in Kpop makes their American television debut:

Looks awkward and cringy. Low budget with poor lighting and camera angles- this is the biggest program they could get to have them on?

Hottest groups in Kpop.

Never heard of them.
75% of foreigners regularly hang out in Itaewon. Only about 0.001% of Koreans do.

Emart and Homeplus will sometimes have them on sale, so you can check those places out while you happen to be there.

Other than that, the cheapest I've seen them is on Coupang. Most of them range from 10-20k won.

I found the prices on Amazon are pretty good, and shipping is still cheaper than the Korean sites.

Right, because pop culture revolves around you. I've never heard of them either, but then again, I know I'm past it and have the dignity to age gracefully and pass the torch to the next generation without being bitter and haterish about it.

Gotta love the people who think "If I haven't heard of it, it must not be popular because I am the center of the universe."

‘I’ve never heard of X Kpop group’

‘Bitter and haterish’

FFS, I know you’re bored because you’re stuck inside, but strap on a mask and go for a little walk. Will do you good.

This is next level.

Colburn - I've never heard of them
DM- I've never heard of them either.

1) = griping, bitter, haterish, I am the centre of the universe
2)  = aging gracefully with dignity.

You couldn't make this stuff up.
