Again, I absolutely in no way feel Germany's  contrition excessive, at all. It's just they have done it so well that they will forever be the yard by which others are measured. Many would not be able to live up to that.
And I agree Japan would have done themselves a lot of favors, had they apologized more thoroughly and sincerely.

has anyone seen the korean tv show 구해줘 홈츠? it's a show about some celebrities going to these "nice" apartments and showing of where you can live. the apartments are usually garish or tiny or with a shit layout. the celebrities do that weird over-acting thing where they act like they've just won the lottery, when all they are doing is going into a cramped, undecorated bedroom.

"WOOOOOOW! look it has a tiny rooftop area!!!" -> cuts to studio with more celebrities. "OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT IT'S A TINY USELESS ROOFTOP AREA" -> insert canned cheering sounds and lots of onscreen text

then it shows the price: one billion, trillion, gazillion won

You mean a Seoul version of MTV's 'Cribs' only in a place where rent is sky high due to population density and lack of arable land?

as with any TV/reality tv show....they are all scripted to make them interesting and I do not understand Korean humor/entertainment at all. I don't like reality tv in general, no matter what country, but I do tend to like travel/food/cooking shows. I think the US equivalent of that show it House Hunters on HGTV, minus the celebrities.

i don't know what cribs is, but they also show places outside of seoul. if they show really amazing houses or unique, quirky places, then cool. or if they helped actual couples/families find their "ideal" home. but they seem to show nothing but celebrities, who do nowt but look through these bog-standard apartments. but it's the weird fake reactions that annoys me most tbh

Sounds like the total opposite of escape to the sun where you see ordinary British couples turn their noses up at amazingly cheap places with swimming pools in Spain. Just watched an episode where they were looking at places for 300 grand in Cosra Rica. 'Yeah, we like the 6 acress of land, 3 en suite double bedrooms and open plan dining/living area the size of a church hall but the 4th bedroom's a bit on the small side and the pool's the wrong shape ' etc..

Haha yeah, totally agree.

Location, Location, Location is a guilty pleasure of mine.  I can't get enough of it but I get so wound up at people who refuse amazing houses based on things that can easily be changed.

yeah i find this mental too. same when they go to australia (on a similar programme). "oh, we felt homesick". ok, give up your huge house with outdoor swimming pool and wages that were double, and go back to your small attached house in birmingham

Yeah, I'm going to trust my money to a bunch of comedians who know nothing about property, interior design and location..

Some of their choices are just garish.

UGH. Today is graduation and all the students left at about 11:30.  2 of my co-teachers randomly told me yesterday that I could leave early today after lunch. Cue today when one asks if I'd put it into Neis....so basically they were informing me that I was "allowed" to use part of my vacations days to leave early on a day with no students...

I was really looking forward to leaving early.  :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Left at 4:28 yesterday and a teacher who I've never spoken to tells me in Korean that I'm meant to stay until 4:30. I smiled and left. This morning got to school and she mentioned it again. It's 4:24 now ... do I stay or do I go now?  :P

Yeah, but don't know why they even brought it up. Obviously I'd be allowed to use my vacation time (early leave) if there's 0 students and 95% of the teachers are gone, lol.

The English room at my main school doubles as my office. Since I'm stuck here deskwarming for a few days, I decided to do some deep cleaning. The desk in here is really big and heavy, so it probably hasn't been moved since the day it was put in, and I know there's gotta be some nasty shit built up underneath it.

I just found two dead birds. :cry: :cry: :cry:

D: Dead animals are the worst.

In the apartment above me, lives one of my students and her family. Her father is a deadbeat and over the weekend, threw the same dead mouse into my apartment twice. I even caught him the 2nd time. He regularly throws his trash into my apartment, and if I have everything closed, he slides it under my front door, or leaves it on my tiny little balcony.
