*Yawn*

Goodevenin'

It's 4:30. I gotta go to sleep 5 hours from now (in bed at 9:30, asleep by 10).

What shall I do this evening?

A question I happily have asked myself for the last 3 years.

No gym today, so going to the gym isn't an option. Corona situation isn't great in my neighborhood (big spike last weekend) so slaying at the coin noraebang is out....

Tabula rasa...video games it is

Get yourself a Korando, then take that bad boy out for a spin to find some hunnies.

Or better yet, just ride share with Van. If the 2 of you combined can't catch, uh, hunnies, then nobody can!

Also, Tabula Rasa was a great game. One I never got around to playing, unfortunately.   :sad:

"Get yourself a Korando" is soooooo 2006.

A Ford Mustang Mach-E is the way to go these days.

Here’s an interesting stat:

“Seoul has 4.38 square meters of green space per person, far below New York’s 23 square meters and London’s 27 square meters. The World Health Organization recommends that cities offer at least 9 square meters of green space per person.”

http://m.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20210407000282

The good news is a group is lobbying for more.

Other good news from the article:

“According to a Forbes article, it is predicted that twice as many bikes as cars will be registered in Europe each year by 2030.

Cycling is a common mode of transport in the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Denmark. Paris is set to remove about 70,000 parking spots from its streets to make the city greener and expand bike lanes.”

Apparently the origin of using the word "doughnut" or "donut" as an insult comes from a 1970s UK sitcom called The Double Deckers, referencing an idiotic character named Doughnut.

At least this is what a short 30 second google search told me. I didn't spend any time trying to confirm this, so I decided to post it here instead of the "tell me a little known fact" thread because why dafuq would you call someone a donut as an insult?

Now you know a possible and I personally feel a satisfactory why.

One of Gordon's favorite insults, it seems.

Absolutely one of my favourite lines from Kitchen Nightmares.

The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I started calling people a donut of my own accord back in the late nineties.  It just had a good ring to it.  Same reason why I thought it was funny calling someone a lunch bucket back in the eighties.  It just sounded like an insult.

Yeah, you can call anyone literally anything and it'll sound like an insult.

You ten-toed banana juggler!

You're the kind of guy who goes to his room and finishes his math homework.

Okay, breather. Why don't you go cell divide somewhere else?

Oh, sure, anything can be an insult, it's all in the tone and context.

But some insults make zero sense without some background, and doughnut is definitely one of them.

An individual could just choose any random thing to turn into an insult, but when it comes to something that is or was in widespread use, there's going to be an origin. And yeah, certain insults become popular because people think they're funny, even if they have no idea where they came from to begin with.  :laugh:

Donut is an intuitive insult because it's also a zero.  There's nothing in it. 

As in, "You really came through with that poutine, didn't you, you donut?"  Perfect.

My wife started calling the dog “You donut!” So now “donut face” is when the dog lays on his back and shakes his head back and forth asking for a belly rub.

I saw this on an edgy poutine meme site I frequent just yesterday. 

"Some people talk about making poutine.  Some people make poutine"

You get the hint there, you dirty Farnsworth?  I'm only on this site to hear how the poutine worked out.  Well, that, and to hear what Hangook feels about the current state of salaries in the Korean ESL industry.
