When I say different, I think Korean young adults tend to be better at accepting wisdom, working in groups, accepting discipline, maintaining schedules, setting limits on irresponsible behavior, etc.


So, like children?

Wow!  All the Asians you knew from back home turned out awesome!  None of them are even obese.  Not that you have much credibility on here, but when you're just going to make things up out of thin air you can't lay the B.S. on so thick.  If you hope some newbie who just joined (and will take a few days to figure out you have a flexible relationship with the truth) will buy what you're saying you need to tone it down.

I don't think it's possible to generalize with any accuracy the maturity level of people who live at home and people who don't.

I've met Koreans who live with their parents who are absolutely hopeless and have almost no life skills or work ethic. I've also met Koreans who still live with their parents who were competent, intelligent, and hard working. The same goes for the opposite. Lots of people who don't live with their parents who are still super immature and lacking a lot of pretty necessary life skills.

This can also be applied to people in our home countries.

That said, obviously living at home and having your parents do literally everything for you is going to leave you fairly stunted in terms of maturity and competency, when it comes to a lot of things.

Your hallucination about what I wrote has been noted.

Go back and read it again. Never said all Asians I knew.

truth be told, all of them that still lived with mom and dad and spent that time studying

Anyways, you're right. It's impossible that any of these people could be more mature and and stable than you and have made better life choices. You are king shit.

If you have life experience and maturity, you should be able to recognize that living at home is not very predictive of either of those things.

I can't be bothered to go back and read your blather a second time.  I stand by my post.  The second I saw someone mention Koreans being babied and coddled by mommy well into their adult years I knew a contrary knee jerk response was coming from you.  And you didn't disappoint.  You are one predictable poster.  Why do you feel the need to defend Koreans that live at home until they marry?  It doesn't reflect on you.  You were living on the streets and running a gang by 18.

Yeah there's no middle ground with martino. 95% of people I know don't live with their parents and not a single one has had an overdose, killed someone, filed for bankruptcy, etc. They are all doing well, though. What kind of people do you hang out with martino?

1 who died of liver and kidney failure at 26 from alcohol. 2 who OD'd on fentanyl, one of them leaving behind a toddler.

Glad you've never gotten that news.

Entirely depends on why people are living at home to be honest. Living with  your parents (if you can) to save up enough money for a house is a good idea since its technically an investment, plus paying rent is a plague.

I get that the housing market (in the US at least, I don't know about here) is awful, but people who do have to live with their parents should at least be saving for the future. I know a lot of guys that live at home that just blow all their paychecks on weed and shit.

I feel like waygook.org user Mr. DeMartino could literally say something innocuous like, "Some birds can fly," and half the active users would start arguing with him over it.

Conversely, I feel like any waygook.org user could literally say something innocuous like, "Some birds can fly," and waygook.org user Mr. DeMartino would start arguing with them over it.

But he doesn't say those things so it's a moot point.  If he comes out with something innocuous your theory can be put to the test.

That's not true! MOST birds can fly, over 90% of species.

Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

well, i'm sorry to hear that, but i'm not sure you can put the cause of addiction on moving out of your mum's house

You don't think an immature mindset of "I don't want to live in an environment with rules!!!" contributed? You think if they stayed at home and focused on school instead of partying that would have happened?

Fact is many a young person back home moves out simply so they can get laid and party. It's not about learning financial responsibility because if you were being financially responsible you'd realize you could save massive amounts of money by not paying food, rent, and utilities.

"I moved out and took out a massive student loan to help pay for room and board and now I blame the rich for having to pay back that loan, but hey I learned responsibility and developed maturity."

this is a weird conversation train, even for you.

--

me: moving out of your parents house helps to give you more life experiences, and makes you a generally more well-rounded person

you: i know people who DIED when they lived on their own

me: yes, but did they die because they moved out of their mum's house? or is it because they had an addiction and needed help?

you: living on your own is not financial responsible. also, these people only want to party

My younger cousin stayed at home, ended up getting a girl pregnant right after high school, or near the end of high school, forget which; He stayed at home, looked after the kid etc. Then, he gets a great rugby scholarship type thing on his final year of being able to get into a professional rugby career, has a going away party, had sex with a girl who showed up to the party, who ended up being 15 (but was notorious for doing guys that were 16+ just to get them in trouble with the law) and almost got put onto a sex offenders list. The judge knew the girl and showed my cousin a bit of leniency over it.

Kids can stay at home and still party and get laid too AND still make stupid choices in life + not mature.
Kids can stay at home and do better in life.
Kids can move out at 18 and still make stupid choices in life and not mature.
Kids can move out at 18 and do better in life.

I think ultimately how one does / doesn't do depends more on other factors, not just home vs move out.

I know a lot of people who once they went about a year after finishing up university and were still living at home got charged rent.  So, yeah if your parents were going to let you stay until you're married and never have to contribute to costs you could save money. 

Face it.  The fact is that if Koreans were the ones who culturally pushed their children towards independence and moving out, you'd be taking the opposite position and mocking stay at home westerner babies.  Your default position on any issue is defend Korea's practices as the most sound and sensible.  It's why no one takes you seriously. 

And since in your argument here you are clearly acknowledging two different cultural practices, what does that mean for your oft repeated stance that things really aren't any different between here and the west?  Kind of throws that out the window, doesn't it?

Don't worry, L I says that cameras everywhere lower crime.

I'm surprised by the fuzziness / lack of clarity in this Walmart surveillance footage (considering how fast technology has advanced).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50qXWSfozFI

How many will be caught and identified?

I remember when CCTV lacked this vivid color, so that's an improvement.

If the images were more clear (which is probably coming soon), more looters could be quickly found.
