Such a wild thing to observe: SKorea has developed so rapidly that our language has become riddled with foreign loanwords that our Northern counterpart can no longer understand - even if we speak the same language.

Excited to see technology being used as a powerful medium to better bridge the growing 70-year gap of our now two distinct cultures.

[captions]

Narrator: “27,000 North Korean defectors living in South Korea.”

[Students introduce themselves in Korean]

Narrator: “What is it called?”

[Students name objects in Korean]

Narrator: “Through 70 years of separation, languages of the two Koreas have grown apart. Would you mark any unfamiliar words? North Korean defector students could understand less than 50% of the terms in the textbooks. This led to them being neglected from regular education, and that led to disparity in employment and income. Even Google Translator could not solve the discrepancies in the language. So then we came to create our own translator. South Korean-North Korean translator. We designed it so that a simple scan of an unfamiliar South Korean word with a smartphone would translate it into North Korean. Translating several words all at once is also possible. It was hoped that with this app, the North Korean defectors would be able to get proper education. We of course plan to continue to help them adjust well to life in South Korea. Koreans were shocked, saddened, but motivated after seeing the translator for what had been the same language.”

[Dr. Huttman speaking German]

Narrator: “Nobody knows when the two Koreas will be reunified, but if the two Koreas are able to communicate without barriers through this translator, perhaps that day would come just a little sooner.”

y’all remember in Inglorious Bastards when the nazis all go to see the movie about the “war hero” who sniped tons of jews and was esteemed in the military and by hitler for it?

that’s literally exactly American Sniper sorry

eli roth, who made the short film for inglourious basterds that that nazis watch in the theater, has actually pointed out this connection which i find so fucking incredible

“so what if that book had a bad movie adaptation? it’s impossible to make a completely satisfying movie version of a book, stop complaining!”

‘Cause let’s be real, here. Despite what tumblr will tell you, it’s okay to not be attracted to fat people (or skinny people or anything in between). What gets your motor running isn’t really something you have complete control over. What you DO have complete control over is how you treat people you don’t find attractive. You always have the option to not be an asshole.

not finding someone attractive because of their weight (or lack of it) is having a type.

Treating someone badly because of their weight (or lack of it) is shallow and hurtful. You don’t have to be sexually attracted to someone to be nice to them. 

You don’t have to be sexually attracted to someone to be nice to them.

I want to write an alternative version of Romeo and Juliet where instead of being a little ponce and trying to work things out for himself, Romeo asks his smarter friends what to do about the whole thing and Benvolio and Mercutio come up with the world’s greatest plan:

Marriage of convenience between Juliet and Mercutio.

Think about it.

Juliet’s parents want her to marry into the Prince’s family. Mercutio is a good compromise between no marriage and Paris.

Mercutio probably won’t get his inheritance if he keeps being HELLA FUCKING GAY ALL OVER THE PLACE so a beard is only a benefit to him.

They would probably get along great rolling their eyes at how adorably stupid Romeo is.

Romeo and Benvolio could get a “bachelor pad” right next to Juliet and Mercutio’s house. Every night, Romeo and Mercutio high five as they hop the fence to go bang their one true love.

The second half of the play is just all of them trying to keep up the charade and being “THIS CLOSE” to getting caught all the time. But everything ends nicely because true love conquers all.

Everybody wins. Nobody dies.

I owe a lot to that vanished group. Were you in it? I miss you.
Made this short comic for Dirty Diamonds #4- breakups. If you missed it at MICE and SPX this year, it’ll be at Asbury Park Comic Con in 2014, and fingers crossed for TCAF.

For a lot of Gen X and Gen Y, I imagine that this is going to hit home … it did for me.

ow, ow, ow

I have a couple of newbie running questions: do people carry water with them when they run? I don’t like having things in my hands when I’m running so I’m not sure what to do about water. Also on that note are the armbands for an iPhone worth it (cause not all of my running clothes have pockets) or is there a way around that problem?

Yea it’s a very good idea to carry water while you run, especially with it being summer time. If you don’t want to hold it there’s always camelback stuff if you’re willing to buy that thing.

I’ve never had the arm bands and have almost always just held my phone so I can’t say

runnerthefifth:

All runners should have some form of identification on their person at all times. You may not think you’ll need it, but when you leave your wallet in a helicopter mid-crash and SOMEONE starts to get suspicious, you’ll be wishing you’d taken some time to grab your ID from the burning wreckage- I mean, your trunk.

“Never stop drawing, the day you stop drawing is the day you die.”
