Totally Grant-like dude in Sweden makes a wood-smoke-powered Volvo. The only issue is that Grant has too short a commute to make it worthwhile.

I found a Korean lady who is far more interesting than everything else in my life.

So, I have been learning 한국어. 그녀는 영어 말을하지 않습니다! But she is learning...

It really annoys my South Korean friends when I say that I like certain North Korean pop music. Its a refreshing break from KPOP. Don't worry, I only like the music without overt messages. But, if you look hard enough you can find politics, like in this good song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXTRA...eature=related It's got a generic socialism message, no Keem Jeong Ill stuff... It's hard to find North Korean music without politics since the government releases all of the music!

Two ways to quickly end a conversation with a Korean:
-Talk about North Korea, especially by calling it Cheosonguk (they refer to it as Bukhan)
-Ask what their feelings are on the American Military (good or bad, they often won't touch that subject)

If you want to read a good story, and read about how we should be dealing with most world conflicts, read about this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paul_Bunyan

One South Korean person called it the Axe Accident. He knew the word. I told him that it wasn't any accident...

I need to go rest...

I did a bunch of stuff for work (to get the free trip) and then spent time with a charming lady. I'm going back in 3-4 months if she'll let me.
