As you would expect from elementary school students, particularly the boys, they delighted in waving around piss-stained litmus paper, smacking one another with it, dropping the strips and generally rendering the entire process a complete exercise in futility.

The place were logic comes to die.
This reminds me of my EPIK orientation back in Jeonju, which was held in the local university. It was a large intake -- maybe 200 or 250 new teachers -- and were were all doing our medical exams in the convention area (my favourite part was the TB exam where it was discovered that one of the dudes had a paperclip in his lungs) with each different test assigned its own station. As it happened, the urine test station (washroom) was wayyyyy across the convention hall from the counter where we were supposed to deposit the sample. Normally this wouldn't be an issue: the paper cups are big, and most people have the common sense not to fill it up to the brim. Unfortunately, the people in charge of scheduling decided that hosting the graduation ceremony at the same time as the EPIK health exams would be a fantastic idea. So here we have upwards of 200 people weaving through a jostling crown of well dressed folk, heroically struggling to not shower piss all over Minjae's beautiful new prom dress...  :rolleyes:

Ok, so tonight I went to my second viewing of Infinity War (still awesome). I think I enjoyed it this time waaaay more though because it was less packed with noisy Koreans.

Is it just me, or do they seem to have no problem making mouth noises during a movie? It happened a lot when I first went, and it only happened like once tonight.

My local home plus has stopped requiring a 100 won coin for the trolleys, as such no-one needs to return them to get their money back.  this means that the carpark now has many abandoned trolleys from people too lazy to walk 20 yards to return a trolley.  What is more, when one person leaves a trolley, others think it is ok to add their trolley to it and start a new "collection" of trolleys.

In the carpark there are fire extinguishers, abut several are now blocked by stacks of trolleys that have been left by lazy cunts who care only of themselves.  if there is a fire, fook everyone else because i couldn't spend 2 minutes to act like a decent citizen human being.  SAFETY LAST

Remember the sewol!!!!!

No, like sucking teeth, sighing, audibly yawning, among other things that are a bunch of unnecessary, distracting noises.

Nothing wrong with that. I guess if people want total quiet then watch it at home?  :blank:

Yeah i don't like those noises but i would even notice them if i was watching a loud blockbuster. But if you are in a quite elevator like i was this morning then those silly noises become very annoying.

The watch it at home excuse is bull. There's no way in hell you can get a theater experience in a tiny little apartment here. Plus yes, quieter is nice, but I hoped that some people would at least have the consideration to lessen any unnecessary sounds in a theater. Save the usual phone ringing, which is bound to happen (and frankly, DID happen when I first watched the movie). The theater experience is literally ruined when people do this stuff.

I watched A quiet place at the cinema here and it was surprisingly quiet.

The thing that pisses me off the most are people checking/txting on their phones throughout the movie as the light is distracting and you can't help but look at it.

Can buy popcorn from homeplus, a soda from the nearby convenience store (plus other snacks you'd usually buy at the cinema), then get some quality speakers / good headset, and watch the movie from your home PC. It's possible to do it in your apartment here. But it depends on what your view on the cinema experience is.

I hate noise and distractions while watching a movie so much that I've only been to the theaters three times in the past ten years. I get unreasonably angry at the bright phone screens, chatting, and popcorn munching, so unless a cutie wants to go catch a movie together, I actively avoid theaters. Luckily(?), cuties never want to do anything with me, so I don't have to subject myself to it. Hooray?

Don't care enough about the snacks. It's about being in that big dark room, with friends, watching a story unfold on the giant screen, while the noises boom during certain parts. In the theater, the only thing that matters is the movie. If I'm at home, I'm 10x more likely to be distracted, especially by my phone (I can't speak for everyone, but I know it's true for a lot of people). I have no problem with watching movies at home, but when it's something like Avengers, I want that experience.

I teach in the homeroom classrooms. The kids are way more chill than in 'English rooms'. Went to teach 6th grade. The head of 6th grade managed to confuse the three bottles of water scattered across her desk and take mine to her office before class started. I think I'll let her keep it rather than ask for it back with all her germs. Silly woman.

I have no problem with watching movies at home, but when it's something like Avengers, I want that experience.

If I don't go to the theatre 3 times a month, I go a little loopy. I used to be a projectionist, so I'd get free movies. 3/4 of the movies I'd see back home were on the big screen. It's really hard to watch some movies on a 27" screen after 8 years of big screens. Especially with something like Blade Runner 2049 or Dunkirk.

There's something magical about being in a room and having a common experience with hundreds of strangers. Like a concert. The melting together of a crowd into a unique, awesome experience.

Watching Dunkirk by yourself on your phone.......... I just can't imagine. The sound, too. That sound coming out of an S5 speaker? Do yourself a favour and go to the cinema once in a while, the talking isn't that bad, neither are the phone screens.

To me, that's like apples and oranges. Concerts are loud, the crowd should be loud too; but with movies, the watchers should be quiet and not so distracting.
I follow more with Mr. Tim's thoughts. While I don't get unreasonably angry at it, it annoys me a lot.

However, I rarely watch movies. They often lack the great magic and sword battles I have come to expect from anime and video games. :p
