From a psychology perspective, it's kinda interesting, though.

It's pretty common to hate on youngster noise when one gets older.
I'm guessing it has a lot to do with it being a sign of the passage of time, and how it robs us of our relevancy, our place in society's spotlight.
As the things around us progress, we hold on to the norms and ideals of our youth tighter and tighter, afraid that letting go even a little would be conceding to time's inexorable wheel, would force us to confront our own mortality and accept that our lives on this Earth are but the briefest of fleeting moments.

But this is all a side discussion to the issue of why does it bother you that young people now like different music?

It's just you making it an issue. Never said it bothered me.

Just be honest with yourself and admit it does bother you a little. You'll be better off admitting certain things bother you, even if they are irrational and petty.

The flute fails lmao

So this takes me back to the Pirates of the Caribbean memes they had going a while back. They'd take that scene from PotC where the guy goes, "That's got to be the best pirate I've ever seen," then play the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song while showing a vid of people doing something ridiculous and/or epic on the water. But then someone found a recorder fail of the theme song, and made this gem:

Viral vid that inspired it:

**** !!

If Korea had beaten Sweden in their last match on Thursday, then both Korea and Canada would have gone to the semi-finals; instead, simply because Korea lost, both Japan and Great Britain (BOTH of who Korea had beat in this tourney) go to the f'n final four instead, where at least of them will win a medal. Ugh.



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.

Imagine thinking 'admitting something bothers you' constitutes therapy and requires the recommendation of a doctor and such a person giving said advice is claiming to be a psychologist.

Wow.

Do you ever worry that the billions of dollars made by pharmaceutical companies over the last two years might get them asking: How do we keep this fountain of funds going?

They certainly will not be happy with folding their tents and going home. Shareholders don't appreciate a reduction in sales, let alone a plummet in them.

I fear that an industry has just been born. And it has been too lucrative for companies to let die.

My b.s  meter and wariness to participate much more in it is waning.

If you studied history in uni (not sunshine high school history) then you know it is full of ****. Countries attacking their own ships, killing many, just to blame it on the enemy. Governments and companies colluding to monopolize the market, unsafe products rushed to market to profit before the science catches up. Note I didn't use terms like false flag or military-industrial complex because people who know little history cringe and look for a mental shutoff valve. I was a journalist in the 90s when the govt finally unsealed, after 50 years, documents showing Nagasaki and Hiroshima were not bombed to stop the war - the Japanese were willing to surrender - but because the Japanese would only agree to surrender if the emperor were to be preserved, and documents showed American politicians and business execs worried their already planned post-war development of industry in Japan to serve American interests might be threatened if the emperor later objected, that it was better to have an American-backed elected leader of Japan do what they want him to do. SO THEY KILLED EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD IN TWO CITIES FOR THAT REASON UNDER A FALSE NOBLE PATRIOTIC DEFENSIVE PRETENSE. The New York Times wrote two stories on it, but Clinton and Monica pushed it off the front page. It didn't even survive a single news cycle.

My Google search turned up gay interracial midget clown porn.

It's possible I didn't correctly enter "The real reason the US dropped the atomic bombs" and instead Googled "gay interracial midget clown porn."

I did, and found nothing about it being a business decision...just the known history, in every search. Help me out here and put up some links, please. You have me interested.

Apparently it was in the best interests of business development to totally destroy the infrastructure of two big cities in order to not change anything about having the emperor remain as emperor.

Thanks Mr C. Now I'll spend the rest of my day obsessing about what you just said and trying to figure it out  :huh:      But, I think I get what you are saying, and it's what I thought, so... maybe I'll just bake my 30 hour bread instead ;D


Glad I could help.

The output of instant noodles, or "ramyeon" in Korean, stood at 1.93 million tons in 2020, up a whopping 231 percent from a year earlier.

http://m.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20220222000171

Carbonated drinks ranked second in terms of output with 1.87 million tons in 2020, according to the data, followed by flour with 1.82 million tons, beer with 1.5 million tons and sugar with 1.43 million tons.

The text from the apartment manager is short and sweet. My contract is up in one month. Rent is going up 100,000 won a month, and I'll have to put down an additional 5 million key money if I want to stay.

I ask why. I already know what she's going to say. It's the answer they give to justify everything.

The answer comes back. Corona.

I now have more questions. But I don't ask. Why would I? The answers I seek can't be answered by her.

 I take another shot of my Jeju Island tangerine juice. Down the hatch. It's smooth, but hits hard. I reach for a Pepero to light. Package is empty. Must have smoked the last one this morning. Damn.

When exactly is the contract ending? If you have at least a month, then you have the right to use a so called 계약갱신청구권. This ensures that the landlord can't raise the rent more than 5%.
He was supposed to let you know about the planned raise from 6 months to 1 month before the end of the contract. If they let you know with less then a month remaining, then they have no right to raise. If there is more than one month left, you should text or call the landlord immediately, and tell them that you will use a 계약갱신청구권. Record the call. Don't wait with it untill tomorrow. Best would be to text, kakao and call as well. Timing is crucial.
And you can ask for advice tomorrow from a co-worker or a budongsan. But not the budongsan where you signed your current contract. They will likely be on the landlord's side because they keep bringing them new business. So they would just feed you some bs how you are wrong.
