Beautiful day out there, no doubt thanks to cmxc’s presence here, without a doubt the greatest act of sacrifice since the Romans nailed Jesus to a 4 x 4.

Cmxc, a grateful nation salutes you!

Enjoy the long weekend, folks. And remember who you can thank for it.

Open Thread – The Turkish Deep State Edition

For this edition of the open thread, I would note that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said a 15-year-old boy who died on Tuesday from injuries sustained in last year’s anti-government protests had links to terrorism (link).  Of course Erdogan had to take a swipe at this kid since thousands turned out in the streets to protest his unjust death (link).  Mind you, this is the *same* Erdogan that put scads of Turkish scientists, military, scholars, etcetera, in jail over phony treason charges (additional link) and has had allies and family members tied to money laundering and corruption charges.

Open Thread – The Soju Edition

Yogi Bear - Touch and go-go-go

This open thread is dedicated to that primordial cure for the boredom that strikes before real Spring weather comes.  Mind you, the stuff in the green bottles is the cheap version and if you want a better experience, you should try these.  Also this youtube piece should remind everyone of the dangers of using drum machines and soju together.

Open Thread: The 대한독립만세! Edition

Have a lovely March 1 holiday weekend, folk.

And on a completely unrelated note, I’d like to say that Russian militia groups seem to dress a lot better than their American counterparts.

Open Thread: In case anyone still wants one

I figured the Kim Yuna thread was going so well, we didn’t need a separate Open Thread. But just in case you need one, here it is.

Open Thread: the Olympic Edition

Lovely Saturday morning in Seoul. Hope it holds.

Have a good weekends, folks.

Open Thread – Getting Around Edition


The times sure have changed.  Getting around Seoul and Korea can be fun and for some, relaxing, as per Jodi Kantor’s fluff piece for the NY Times on spas (bathhouses) in South Korea.
