Yasukuni. It was a big deal here too.
Yeah. To both countries. What's frustrating is the way in which conservative politicians in Japan treat that part of their history.   And in Seoul, of course, it's way overblown. For example, everyone here knows how Japan produced a history textbook that basically ignored anything Imperial Japan did to Korea and China. Nobody knows that that book sparked nationwide protests in Japan, that only two high schools in the entire country ended up using that book, and neither...
No worries mate!
borderline offensive.
Most of the college kids I know, with the exception of a few freshman, probably are more in the "ewwwwwwwww.....let them do their own thing but not around me" camp as well as folks in their early mid 20s. Adults our age (early 30s late 20s) tend to be more of a "uhhhhh.....weird...I guess....it isn't right and gross....but whatever" and you get older than that and you start running into "Korea doesn't have any homosexuals." High school kids, especially those who go to the...
Coworkers definitely different from fellow students. Also, you could get sued. He brought it up and discussed it relatively academically. A few people snickered at first, but most listened with a look of mild shock and legitimate interest. Yeah. But you know how massive generation gaps are in Korea. And really, one would need "sub-generations" to really comprehend how quickly social norms and values change here. There is a visible difference in values in a group of kids...
The majority of those kids are in college (college professors here tend to lecture from powerpoint and test from powerpoint...they take the whole "let me research go away I don't want to teach please please go away ok fine but I'm not going to enjoy it and neither will they" archetype to a whole new level). Which is where I come in (someone who actually enjoys teaching this stuff). The crazy thing is I get paid more than most of them. Education here is just nuts. I could...
They do now. A lot of torrent sites are blocked as well. You get a blue screen with a bunch of warnings and shit.Also, why is my student dumb for basically admitting he watches porn? Almost every guy does and a surprisingly large amount of women do as well. Pretty sure several girls in that class have a hidden folder or two on their hard drive.(The only person allowed to call my students stupid is me)And Asiana is where it's at.Also, I think I'd rather go with the...
The shorts. Low crotch. Will give it a proper treatment in the next week or two.
I had a (male) student complain about the government censorship of porn websites in class the other day. There were some young women in that class as well. Ain't no shame in his game. It wasn't out of the blue (though fairly tangential); we'd just read a paper about moralist economic policies. But still. It was an awkward moment. Which didn't stop him from spending a good 3-4 minutes making his point. With references to specific websites.
