Korean History ...

If you are thinking of coming to work in Korea and are wondering what Korean people are like , or deal with Korean people a lot , you need to watch this video .

Koreans aren't the most care free or light hearted people you are ever going to meet. I don't know what the korean word for "chilling out" is concerned , but I imagine it's something like "uncomfortable sensation and loss of self resulting from lack of work commitments or social convention".

Of all the things I don't love about Korea...I don't love the blind nationalism the most . Korea has recently indulged in the process of re-writing their history and let's say somewhat "over estimating "their importance in the grand scheme of things.

This sums up a few things about Korea quite well : the tendency to measure their position in everything in correlation to others countries, the rampant Anti-japanese sentiment and passive aggresive nature are quite well captured here . And I dare say the imitation and accent are pretty accurate .But those are topics all for their own articles...

No hate mail or shooting the messenger please ...

Korean women : an introduction

Women . God bless them .

Personality wise somewhere between a cat and a leech . Chiefly the thing is a cunning manipulative parasite, oh but what a beautiful parasite !

And as beauty goes they don't get much more gorgeous than Korean women. The perfect combination of your modern educated women, with a little old throw back feminity and grace added to the mix. But let's not complicate the equation with the pretence of caring about women's "personalities" and get straight to it...

Korean racing girls....

Korea hasn't gotten caught up in issues of gender equality as much as the west yet. Sexual objectification is everywhere. A day doesn't go by that scantily clad women aren't promoting the opening of some store or marketing some product with total lack of irony or pretense. Of course the hard truth is that girls love being sexually objectified. So unlike the west where women are expected to only objectify themselves within a context( Just look at women's tennis, fashion or myspace in the west.) in Korea they are encouraged to sexually objectify themselves as randomly and frequently as possible. Now that's real gender equality .

Personally all my grand ideas of playing the foriegner card with a harem of Korean women got put to a swift end . The day she walked in...

Enter "Hahn" .

Whilst "Hahn" represents to me all that is achingly beautiful about the universe, I don't think I've yet registered in even the lower dimensions of hers. She's the most perfect and alluring creature I'll ever enountered. I only mention her because I suppose in one way or another the more personal aspects of this blog will involve hahn ripping my heart out in one way or another.

So as that goes...."To be continued"

Introduction : A manifesto of self loathing .

Some people are good at life . It comes easily and naturally to them . Oh they prance and prod around generally achieving things and hardly screwing anything up . Smug bastards .

I , on the other hand , fail at life . I'm just no good . If the universe was one big rock concert , I'd be the portable toilet .

Now I hope you don't confuse those sentiments for some form of self pity . I find in general in order for me to pity something I need to have some sort of empathy for the thing , and I hate myself far too much to manage any form of empathy for myself . Nope , if there was any group or orginisation out there who proposed feeling sorry for me and allowing me to live , well they can count me out .

You see....I'm human . There can be nothing as detestable in the known universe than a human being . I feel if one is unlucky enough to have been born as a human it's ones moral prerogative to hate oneself as much as possible .

Antinatalism aside, I write this blog in the spirit of a sound warning to my fellow sentient beings in the universe . Also perhaps one could see it in the light of some form of gallatical suicide note , as I expect extermination will be high on the agenda of any intelligence beings reading this .

I hope you enjoy reading this , or at least , don't suffer too much .
