Yeah, we all know you have a thing for moms, but I’m still high on noon.

A more interesting concept to me than noonchi is noon-ssulmi and kwi-ssulmi, but funny enough ssulmi itself isn’t a word, or at least I haven’t been able to locate a definition. A term so untranslatable, even the Korean dictionaries are stumped! I like it enough that I thought Solmi (the aspirated SS might be a bit strong) would make a good name for my child, but my wife nixed it because “mi” is more typical of girl names. In fact most of the names I make up and think have a nice ring to them, when I perform a google image search of them (“김XX”), female faces are typically populated. I guess Bum-suk it is... :-[

귀썰미  and 눈썰미 are about talent and the ability to pick up something quickly just by listening or seeing.  I suppose 귀썰미 would be good for languages or for music once you've heard it, it stays with you and you can recite it well.  눈썰미 for art and painting.  Once you've been taught the first time, it stays with you.  'Sharp eyes' maybe?

I always thought 'Mia' would be a good name for a Korean girl.  Until I found out it meant 'missing child'.

Right. My thinking was that if you can have noon-ssulmi and kwi-ssulmi, then ssulmi itself must have some definition akin to “perceptive”, but I couldn’t find a single entry for 썰미 in the Naver dictionary.

I wonder if Mia isn’t some portmanteau of “미싱” and “아기”...

A plurality of Republicans (44%) believes that Microsoft founder Bill Gates wants to use a mass vaccination campaign against COVID-19 to implant microchips in people.

Half of Americans who watch Fox News as their primary news source (50%) indicated that they believe the statement about Gates is true.

Most people in the US are opposed to the form of numerals you cited.

American education of the Roman numeral system is obviously lacking.  :wink: Solution? Multiple Superbowls per year.

Really hate my Tuesday school for this year.

- 6 classes (5 before lunch, with a 5min break between every other class)
- 4th graders are cognitively infants and 6th graders are getting ruder
- CT either stands at the back and does nothing or "needs to go to the staffroom" every 5min during each lesson
- Teaching in the homerooms, which means running between classes and up and down staircases, always fun when it's 35 degrees
- Construction has been going on, inside the school, since the beginning of the year, so the sounds of clanging metal, hammers and drills is omnipresent.
- 45min drive to get to the school

Allah, get me through this day in one piece.

Sounds like one school I taught at, not having your own classroom and a COT that is an ornament really sucks. Good luck, hope things get better.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

A poor rhyme, and I hope you’re not trying to make light of this situation.

A few things I’ve noticed regarding his case that may be material:

1) colburnnn left without removing his vile post signature.

2) Onnut’s recent post harshly critical of Ronnie’s profound interest in the US election. May have hit harder than was intended.

3) The sudden reemergence of chinguetti.

I admit, #3 is driving me to the edge as well.

But hopefully Chinguetti can pick up some of the slack left by Ronnie's departure!
