"dating apps tend to have around 10-to-1 male-to-female ratio"

http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20200331001058

Why would the ratio be so skewed?

Because woman already have tons of men DMing them on Instagram?

And why do Waygook forum posts tend to have around 10-to-1 male-to-female ratio?

The teacher is shit! Just move em around!

What a mindset.

And yeah, great point. The kids are there for 6 years. When you have teachers teaching the same school year for multiple years........guess what? They get better at it. And the kids don't get the same teachers. Unless they flunk, haha.

I just don't understand, "Well, some teachers are kind of bad so why burden one school with them?" So what, you're gonna burden a bunch of schools with them? What?

Pkjh, can you elaborate on the corruption thing?
Unions.

He talks a lot of sense but I'm not really into self help books. I'd buy his verson of Douglas Murray's Madness of Crowds.

Whenever I go out hiking, I inevitably get a shock from pheasants or grouse.  Not sure which is which here.  But I'll be walking along in the hills, minding my own business, and then the kerfuffle and noise of a P or G, jumping up and flying off is ridiculous.  No wonder they get shot.  I'm sure if they were quieter flying off then more would survive.  Fukc 'em if they're gonna be daft like that.  Just saying.   :undecided:

Probably pheasant then, by looking at those pictures.  꿩 is one of my favourite Korean words, because you can't really say it without sounding like a church bell ringing on the hour.  뇌조 or brain trillion, as I would call it, to the disappointment of my students...  :sad:  아! 쌤! 노잼!

If you ever have a chance to have 꿩만두, do it. So good. It's really common in the Cheongju/Chungju area, right up your alley PROVINCE

specifically this website, but it applies to the world in general i guess. i notice it most when people are engaged in a flame-war with characters like d'tino (who are game for long "discussions"). to be fair, i've definitely done it a few times too

I think it's fair.  He might have needed a bit more detail to jog his memory of that waygook site.  You know, the site that he was currently posting on.

When I go to Lotte Mart, and after the cashier hands me my card and receipt, she always says, 'this discussion is ended'.  When I'm in GS25 buying some ramyeon, the cashier always says, 'I'm done'.   And when I go to the doctor and after he's told me that my piles are incurable and I have bad aids, he says 'end of discussion'.  Sometimes, I don't know what world you live in Fauntleroy.

You should get a second nickel if they keep arguing after they say that.

OMG hahahaha

Our department has bought 6 new external mics for recording the online lessons. Simple, 20 000W, 3.5mm connection (like a headphone)

So I'm helping film today and say it's always important to do a mic check.

SO we plug it into my co-t's phone. I go up to the phone

 :police: This is me speaking into the phone microphone.

Move over to the external, 2m away.

 :police: I am now speaking into the external.

We listen back. Phone mic is super clear, external mic dialogue is quiet and fuzzy.

All of the teachers have been recording into external mics, for dozens of leesons that their phones aren't recognising. hahahahah

My Shure mic for phone use has a chip in it. It TELLS my phone to use it. Also, I use the Shure app so I can see that it's connected and I have sound bars and waves to SEE that it's working.

These mics are 20 bucks. They're not trash but they're not telling our devices to use them through their firmware........... . THERE is no firmware. hahaha

Now, I have a puzzle to solve.

The puzzle being how to best tell 15 super frustrated teachers who can barely turn on a computer by themselves that they need to redo all their lessons?   :shocked:  :laugh:
