Starcraft Lessons from an Authentic Korean

At $35/hr for advanced training, this guys sounds pretty serious...

"I'm 100% full blooded Korean, meaning I have been gifted with unparallel talent to master any video game, particularly, Starcraft: Brood War.


My lessons are offered to only non-Koreans or American born Koreans because they lack the blessing from the Gaming God, Norazi. Sun Tzu once said, "Defiler becomes useless at the presences of a vessel." You will be come the vessel against the defilers that treats you like a non-korean, laughing at your pitiful Starcraft skills...however, you will demolish them with the new profound skills."

The best part? - "Korean girls will be intrigued that you're such a good Starcraft player."

I'm a few days behind so...

I'm certain I was the last to hear about this -
Evidently Iran is trying to hold off protests by airing a marathon showing of The Lord of the Rings trilogy on state television's Channel Two.

Sounds like a trap to me...

No More Cash in Japan?

Evidently some members of the Japanese government are considering getting rid of cash in order to achieve negative nominal interest rates.

"In theory, many Japanese could easily make the leap into a cashless world. The country has six main competing cashless payment systems, many of them embedded into mobile phones. Including Oyster-type cards issued by public transport companies, industry sources estimate that there are about 120 million cashless payment chips sitting in Japan’s wallets and handbags, waiting to be swiped."

0.01% of Wikipedia as a printed book

Yeah, this would be hilarious to put on a shelf. It's 1ft 7in. high.

PETA is completely ridiculous...

Apparently PETA isn't happy with President Obama and his fly-swatting ways.

Are these people serious?

Graffiti from AD 79

Interestingly enough, Archaeologists have found plenty of well-preserved graffiti at Pompeii. This page lists the location and the approximate British translation of each of the inscriptions throughout the site. (Just like its modern day counterpart, ancient graffiti was primarily written by the dregs of society. Before you click the link, consider yourself warned.)

Here are a few of my tamer favorites for those I scared off -

VI.16.15 (atrium of the House of Pinarius); 6842: If anyone does not believe in Venus, they should gaze at my girl friend

VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1816: Epaphra, you are bald!

VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1820: Chie, I hope your hemorrhoids rub together so much that they hurt worse than when they every have before!

VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1826: Phileros is a eunuch!

VIII.7.6 (Inn of the Muledrivers; left of the door); 4957: We have wet the bed, host. I confess we have done wrong. If you want to know why, there was no chamber pot

Herculaneum (on the exterior wall of a house); 10619: Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here

Strangest Thing I've Read Today...

From a 1972 Ensign article on the history of Provo -
"Provo played host as the fifty-sixth annual general conference of the Church was convened in the tabernacle there (April 4 to 7, 1886), and again for the fifty-seventh annual conference (April 6 to 8, 1887). Young boys among the worshipers climbed to the rough-finished portions of the building and hung over the rafters, enjoying a view of the speakers and listening to their counsel until their young innards hurt."
