There's not much that illustrates potential brain damage or the pinnacle of utter stupidity more than crossing the street while staring at your damn phone.

a guy I saw in January cycling down the pavement no-handed, messaging on his phone, comes close.  thing was, his handlebar caught a lamp post and he flew off his bike.  i couldn't help but laugh.  no sympathy.

Were there any animals taped to the lamp post?

yep, it was my practice lamp post.  i started at the top alphabetically with an armadillo, but I gave up when the yak squashed the zebra.

Yep, thanks!
     I did (eventually) manage to find it after some online research, as it's definitely not actually printed on the keyboard I use at school. To get it to work on my keyboard setup, I had to hold down the 한자 key next to the spacebar and then hit "₩".
   Of course, I only found this after  I went to all the effort of going into character maps, finding it in the unicode list, and hotkeying it to "Alt+`".  :rolleyes:

Anyway, so now, if I face-roll my keyboard, it'll probably just output "\\\\\\\\\\\\"  :smiley:

My new CT is 5 for 5 in asking me if I'm familiar with the food at lunch.

South Korea, I have a damn surname you know!
Did my medical check today, only my first name is on all the forms and all the hospital staff call me by my first name.
Parent teacher conference today, as well, the principal lines up all the teacher in front of about 50 parents.
All of them are introduced by name and surname, but me... Oh no! Just the first name.
Feels great to by introduced in the same fashion as one introduces a house maid from the 50s.

It's really getting annoying that no Korean computer system is able to recognise Roman letters, so as far as Korea is concerned, I'm pretty much like the rest of the Korean population was 150yrs ago, no surname.

Yea and it actually looks like a ₩ symbol on Korean Windows when in fact itís a back slash \. It was an insanely dumb decision imo as the ₩ symbol is a different character all together. So if a Korean Windows sent a message to a non-Korean OS or iOS/Linux(Android)/Mac, ₩10,000 would look like \10,000.

Side note: How experienced are you with coding? Also what resource are you using?
Iíve been meaning to pick up C++ as well since I work with Arduino so much these days. Letís do some coding challenges :D

I'm boss at Basic and HTML.  :laugh:
But am still very much a beginner with C languages:
I'm messing around at the moment with Codecademy, and have only just recently graduated from
int main()
{
   std::cout << "Hello World! 
\n";
}

and am currently trying to absorb the very very very very big list of input/output variables.


My friend has introduced me to MonkeyX where they're building a 4x/rpg with some ridiculously complicated tech/magic/crafting/skill trees. They want me to catch up by the end of the semester so that I can contribute. I guess I'm gonna be spending an hour or so everyday torrenting and reading C++/C# course books *sigh*.

Ask me again in a few months, and maybe I can take you up on that challenge!

Any suggestions where I can get some decent, free (preferably legally free) resources?

Woke up super late this morning, pretty sure I turned my alarm off in my sleep because I went to bed really late and set the phone too close to my bed.

Had no time for breakfast, had to brush my teeth at school, and I forgot my allergy meds today. I feel like shit.

The VP decided it was alright for him to lock the bathroom door while he brushed his teeth...

Nevermind anyone else who might need to go in... Especially when it's the only bathroom with toiler paper

go and brush your teeth while sat at his desk, wait for him to come back, but don't move, leave him waiting for a couple of minutes, see what he does.

I'd like to take this opportunity to reiterate how much I hate 회식 (hweishik). Two staff dinners during graduation week, another one this past Thursday, and yet another scheduled for next week.

I can't wait to work for myself oneday (possibly gongbubang) so I can be rid of this awful tradition.
