imagine that every single day in the uk, there was a tv program (or programs) dedicated to watching people eat fish and chips. and every single episode, the "cast" and audience acted like it's the first time they've ever seen fish and chips, and that it's the most delicious thing they've ever eaten. every single day. and people actually tune in specifically to watch it.
I dunno, imagine if back home there were the same comedy shows endlessly mocking the President while the audience laughs and thinks its getting something done instead of them, I don't know actually doing something about it instead of laughing and having repeated candlelight vigils weekend after weekend to protest them eventually leading to their ouster.

You ever stop to think that their "mindless" noodle shows and lack of "sophisticated" political comedy shows are why they were actually able to get off their asses and make a real change instead of tweeting clips of Colbert and applauding themselves for how smart they are?
you're doing it again.

i'm talking about the crappy, repetitive tv in korea and you're talking about politics for some reason. i'm not american so i have no idea what colburt is anyway

Stephen Colbert is the guy who mocked Bernie Sanders for saying this

"
We have got to look at candidates not by the color of their skin, not by their sexual orientation or gender and not by their age. I think we have got to try to move us toward a nondiscriminatory society that looks at people based on their abilities, based on what they stand for."

So you can see where he is politically

Guys, a late night talk show host has a team of writers, sitting in a room and working to a tight deadline. The hosts probably don't even see their monologues until an hour before the cameras start rolling. The writing team has to reference whoever is in the news that day, and the nature of collective joke creation with a looming deadline makes for some terrible flops.

Sadly, we weren't all born with the singular comedic gifts of the "Too Spicy" guy from Korean television.

Saturday night TV that the wife is watching: "Yoo Jae-seok cooks ramyeon for lots of people." Oh look, a grown man can crack an egg into a bowl.

Be like Ricky Gervais been filmed making beans on toast. "Oh no, he's burned the bread."

It's funny because if you ever do a lesson on table manners (I've done a few for students going to the UK) Koreans always swear blind that in Korean culture it's also bad manners to
1) eat with your mouth open
2) make a noise when you're eating
3) Talk with your mouth full.

Everytime I've checked the air quality in the UK, London is almost always green (there have been a few yellow patches in London here and there, but even then London is mostly green). Meanwhile in Korea, if it's yellow it's considered good  :cry:

Actually London is looking almost Korean today https://aqicn.org/city/london/

I thought toilets were supposed to contain the flush water with some room left over.  I am in the public library here and i flush the toilet before using just to check it works and get rid of some toilet paper that was in the toilet. Everything looked pretty normal. The water level was normal. The toilet ended up being blocked and the dirty water overflowed quite a lot all over the floor. It really overflowed for quite a while. I didn't really hang around to find out exactly how long. I guess when you walk in and see a wet floor with wet footprints everywhere it's a sign that something is wrong. 

Actually i went up and down all 5 floors to find an available toilet and it turned out to be blocked. Busy library.

Oh man, do I have a story about a blocked, overflowing toilet here in Korea... Sadly for you, my pride prevents me from divulging the full details. I will share that I was in a public place, it was the dead of winter and the bathroom was typically freezing, and I was due to teach a class about an hour after the incident. Use your imagination to fill in the rest.

I could imagine. It's the stuff of recurring nightmares.

I work at many places so when the big holidays come, I usually receive several gifts. I appreciate the gesture and all, but now I have 3 boxes! of flavorless pears. That is 15 kilos.
Seriously, I really dislike Korean pears. They've got to be the most bland tasting fruit I've ever eaten.

Asian pears are much less juicy than the "pear-shaped" ones I'd had in Canada and America.

I cut up an Asian pear because I can only enjoy them in wedges. One pear lasts five or six snack moments.

The kind back home I always devoured in a minute, then had to wipe the juice off my face.
