In the UK we use a weird mix of both though which can get confusing, I wish we would fully switch.

Same with parts of Canada. Usually body measurements are taken using the imperial system. Maybe cuz having a 31 waist sounds smaller than 79cm...

If I click on a fitness article and read that someone reduced their weight by a stone I immediately stop reading. Not worth the effort.

Korean Netflix.  Why does it say that it has LOTR:TTT Extended Edition when it is definitely not the extended edition?  :cry: >:(
I'm broken hearted.

High of 92 today


Is it simply being stubborn that America will not catch up with the rest of the world and use metric instead of imperial, and use celsius when measuring temperature?

It infuriates me that I have to constantly convert a measurements when reading american books or websites.  It's like they think no one else outside of America will read it or perhaps they simply don't give a crap if anyone does.

It's habit for me unfortunately, didn't mean to swing my star-spangled wang in anyone's face. I am not proud.

I can't help but prefer fahrenheit when talking about hot temps. its' so satisfying to say 90-100 degrees when you're sweating your balls off.

lol yes it doesn't quite feel right to say 30C when your face is melting off but yes it's a silly system

shedding stones from your body does sound tough, though, much like 100 degrees sounds horrendously hot.

Oof. Imagine how tough it would be if one of those 'stones' were 14 pounds (~20231KRW). :shocked:

My COT wants an explanation for every little thing that ever happens in any video I show.  :rolleyes:

For example, I showed the kids a video of Mr. Bean shopping and being his weird self. My COT asked me "Why is doing [weird thing]?" Uhhhh, it's Mr. Bean he does weird things for humor, I can't explain that. Or the other day I was showing a stop-motion Lego animation to the kids, and I had to explain to him what stop-motion was for 5 minutes and then he explained it to the kids, even though I explicitly heard them say "ooh, stop motion."

Some days I think I will make it through my contract easy peasy, and other days, throwing myself in front of a bus seems like a far easier option than having to deal with the bullshit I face  as a GET.

Too many face palm desk moments in one morning.

Weird things for humor. Isn't that the basis of all Korean variety and comedy shows?

What are the last two? I know makgeoli, but I'm not too up to date on my Korean alcohols. That being said, I'm all about the fruit-flavored life.

Second one is wine, third is distilled liquor (it's the second bottle, but 40%)

On another note, I finally watched "곡성" (The Wailing) last night after nearly a year of anticipation.



God was it terrible. :sad:
