"I had some info about a sushi restaurant in Hongdae that was 13 000W . Anyone know what it is?"
Probably the strangest sentence ever written

There's now only one possible thing that you can do: do an exhaustive search and procure the information he's looking for... and then post it directly under his comments.
Then you can sit back and enjoy the fact that he's now the only person on that entire thread who does not know where to find 13,000 won sushi in Hongdae.  :azn:


I can't, it's his post. hahaha He blocked me so I can't even see his post, nor his profile anymore.

This whole thing is a pretty good illustration of why I've avoided expat communities like the plague. I do wonder if I should join one of the Facebook groups every now and then but always think better of it

I had to block a guy cuz in Oink, regardless of what I wrote or said, he would bring up some adult stuff that I'd seen on reddit, months prior. I blocked him because it was just foolish.

I get made fun of a lot in OinK and EKM because I ordered an Americano and got an iced one and I thought that if you didn't specify hot or iced, the default should be hot. And I got made fun of for that. Whatever, I posted it in OinK, people disagreed, and even now people will ask "Well, does this make you as angry as getting a surprise iced coffee? huhuhuhuhuh"

That's fine. I can take my licks. But dickless OinK boy would always say shit like, "You should see what he commented on in the Asian Porn subreddits."   Like, dude, F off. He even screenposted a few comments under an earth sandwich OinK post that I hadn't even shared in there. Someone else had shared the photo cuz it's Korea related. The pic of my comments was up a whole half day before it got deleted.

a) I didn't share the photo
b) the comments are not even from facebook/expat groups
c) get a life.

I blocked the guy on facebook, but I have a feeling that that loser is still lurking around somewhere on the internet. He may even be here on waygook.org.

Yeah, me too. As George Carlin put it, individuals are great; you can see the universe in their eyes. But people in groups are stupid and petty.

Collins says either is [ok/okay].

https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/woah
Well, Collins can go phoag itself. 

First, they are pronounced differently.  "Whoa" is like what cowboys say to their horses, the other is "woe-uhhh". 

Just because people are wrong, dictionaries shouldn't go paying them any attention.  BTW, my OED concise does not offer this "variant" (aka deviant) spelling, but it does have "wo".

You might find this bit of Dave Gorman amusing, and possibly instructive (you can start at 10:00, but then you've missed 10 minutes of Dave Gorman):

Years ago, I joined that Oink group, had nothing better to do during deskwarming. Good God, the admins on that group. The "admins" were nothing more than a 3rd wave feminist goon squad. As soon as someone said something they didn't agree with, one of the admins would tag all the rest and go after whoever it was like a swarm of piranha. I quickly left and last I heard, the admins and mods predictably tore each other apart.

Was told I'll be doing a summer camp from 9am to 5pm. Eight 45 minute class periods. (A K-teacher - who may or may not contribute - will be paid for the camp, but I won't.) Did this happen to anyone else? Will be a struggle to keep the students engaged the whole time I think.

Oof. Is it just one day, or...?

I'd honestly much rather have less hours spread over more days, good luck keeping the students occupied throughout a full school day.
