we have these shite little cardboard "dividers" between desks that do nothing
kids stand one metre apart to go to school, clump together at the end of the day
some fumigator guy comes in wednesdays with some half-arsed fumigating - does nothing much, i'm sure. probably should do everyday, if anything
kids sit apart but group together as soon as class ends
kids get their temp checked only after walking through the entire school

it's all for show

[Story about old people mobbing baby pumpkins]

Which all begs the question...

Are Koreans rude and warm??? :huh:

A topic for another thread, no doubt. (Kyndo?)
Yes, absolutely!
 That sounds like a really interesting topic for discussion!

Kids here aren't supervised between classes/during breaks.

I walked into one of my classes and a bunch of them were all dogpiled on top of one poor kid. Great job social distancing folks

Today, one of the most disgusting kids I've had in my class spent a solid 10min scratching every one of his orifices and simply wouldn't stop no matter how many times he's told. I've been assured he has no mental issues and that he's just incredibly gross and oblivious.

Other than that, my experiences at all my schools mirror yours. Korea has checked quite a few boxes for responsibly handling the CCP virus, but at the end of the day, face culture is still going to be around to poison this society for a very long time.

Couldn't have said it better, when it comes to almost everything in Korea, "It's all for show"

Just as a matter of interest, what do you guesstimate Dippedinblush's punishment will be when she gets judged and found guilty of being gay by God? A few years in purgatory, or maybe fifty lashes with a whip of fire, something like that?

I hope it's lashes cause I've recently procured the complete "Buns of Steel" series on VHS tapes....I am working up to the final judgement...and hopefully I can take it in stride (providing the punishment is focused on the "buns" region and not the back...Is there a "Backs of Steel" for sinners edition available?).  Fingers crossed and wish me luck....

The good news is, if you end your homosexual behavior and give water to a thirsty dog, God might forgive you of all your sins. Maybe. It's up to Him. Only He can judge.

Homosexuality is a sin, in Islam, it's not going to change and neither are my beliefs. If I'm going to accept Islam, it's all or nothing, I don't pick and choose.

In Islam, only God knows where you're going when you die. There's an authenticated Hadith of prophet Muhhamed (PBUH) telling a story of a prostitute who saw a dog panting near a well, it was clearly dying of thirst. She fashioned a water pouch using her sock and veil, draw water and let the dog drink. God forgave her for all her sins.
 
Your teacher, priest and even some Imams I've heard have no right to say who goes where, they aren't God. The 99 names of Allah include 'Most Merciful' and 'The Judge'. Only God has the right to judge and forgive or punish you.

I need the perfect sock to try and quench a dog's thirst first..   Is there a pattern of socks dogs like?  Like argyle? Or herringbone?
 
Do i have to deny my homosexual past first?   And then offer water....Or (the best choice for me) can I give the dog the water from the sock and then it barks a few times and I am free to "perform" the homosexual acts I want to, and then God will invite me to heaven?

Or...something I'm afraid of...the dog wants to be a part of the homosexual acts....and then I will just have to say...no....no way ~and accept the lashes?

It doesn’t need to be the perfect sock. Rather it is the holy intention of charity in the act. It is showing compassion and kindness to those in need. Any functional pouch fashioned from sock and veil will do when drawing water from the well. The pureness of heart is what matters.

OK DONE~!  I took my little half sock filled with milk outside and offered it up to a homeless tomcat....and it lapped it up with relish....oh Gosh....do you think that was enough, L I?  It wasn't a dog....did it have to be a dog?

hmm.. are there any religions where the main god isn't a massive cnut* and generally a nice guy? i can't think of any. i guess buddhism is the nicest religion, but doesn't really count as there isn't really a central god

referring to cnut the great, so you can't ban me for this, innit

Or how about we come out of the clouds and deal with the divinity within and around us and heal our beautiful world, our selves and each other with compassion and loving-kindness, because we have won the genetic lottery! 

We actually have the opportunity to exist on this Earth.....(I don't know the odds of us even existing)? (probably a trillion to1 or more)??  How can we know?  We are so lucky to be here!!  Living and breathing.   Isn't that enough magic?  Do we need to hurt each other so?

A holy sock won’t work. The water will run out.

A high-profile Egyptian belly dancer has been sentenced to three years in prison and received a £15,000 fine for sharing photos and videos of herself on social media that were deemed to incite “debauchery” and “immorality” in a country with conservative social norms.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/egyptian-belly-dancer-sentenced-prison-111732559.html

Other influencers were expected to face the same prison terms as Ms El-Masry as they had committed the same crime. The court also ordered the 42-year-old dancer to be put under police surveillance for three years, according to news site Egypt Today.

Ms El-Masry said she would appeal the sentence.

Since President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi came into power in 2014, hundreds of journalists, activists, lawyers and intellectuals have been arrested in the name of state security.

Young TikTok stars have become the latest target of Egyptian state authorities. In May, a 17-year-old girl posted a TikTok video of herself crying, saying she had been gang-raped by a group of young men. The authorities swiftly arrested her and charged her with “promoting debauchery”.

Compassion? Loving kindness? Do we need to hurt each other so?

You, yourself are not exactly off to a flying start.

I took the time to respond to your long story and relay what I thought was a beautiful story of compassion and forgiveness. Did you criticize it? No, not a single constructive argument or response that was anything more than a joke. Are you in the habit of asking people serious questions and making fun of their responses? In the future, inform more that you have zero intention of engaging in an intelligent conversation and I'll know better than to waste my time.

You may have your reservations about Religion, that's fine, but that's no excuse to not have any manners.

You responded to my previous argument by bringing up my family, yes, you did apologize, but I wouldn't so quick to grandstand my "lets be compassionate and kind to others" beliefs so soon after being that nasty to a stranger.

Being a Lesbian and an Atheist does not make you tolerant or open-minded, in fact, your views sound as fascist and narrow-minded as some of the most conservative and fundamentalist Afrikaner Christians, from the Dutch Reform Church, and fundamentalist Muslims (the ones who beat their wives) that I've heard of:

- You aren't interested in discussing or even hearing about the beliefs of others, you simply want to mock and rant.
- You know next to nothing about beliefs other than your own.
- You discriminate and group all people of a Religion into a single mindset because you don't know any better.
- You don't tolerate others having views which don't coincide with yours.
- You believe everyone should be like you.

... sounds pretty fascist and right-wing Southern Baptist/ pro-Sharia Muslim to me.

It's ironic that you ended up becoming exactly like the people who gave you a hard time as a kid.
Being compassionate and kind is step 4, if I were you I'd work on step 1, which is "don't be an asshole".

You disagree? Fine...

Ignore everything and tell me how your "f*ck your stupid beliefs, you dumb f*ck. Lets just be nice to each other" approach ends up working in reality.
