.Kimbap is highly superior to sushi.
Haven't partaken but consider it added to my culinary to-do list

Every kind of pork is delicious, save for bacon, pork chops and pork cutlettes.
Heresy! The "save for" part, at least.:cool:

Physician assisted suicide doesn't exist in Korea.
To be fair, not many countries do have it.

When one is sad, one should eat chocolate to become happy again.
I find watching a Monty Python movie works better but I know it works for a lot of people.

However, one shouldn't eat chocolate while enjoying sad movies.
Because the resulting feedback loop (I'm supposed to be sad but chocolate is supposed to make me happy but I'm supposed to be sad but...) will cause your brain to explode??o_O

I think that's it. She was quite sure that chocolate + sad movies is a bad mix.

Korea is currently 14 hours ahead of Toronto. It's Wednesday, 10:19 a.m. as I post this.

Korea is 13 hours ahead of Toronto when Ontario isn't in DST. Korea doesn't do DST.

I think you're worded is backwards (though your first statement about what time it is now is correct) based on my experience with China, which also doesn't do DST. China is 13 hours on standard time and 12 hours on daylight time. So Korea should be 14 hours on standard time and 13 on DST (your "isn't " should be an "is")

"True. A literal "boner". In fact, we are unique among the apes in not having it."

Thus the occipital bone is the prick of the brain? May be a headache to some unfortunates ...

Are you hearing a lot of Kris Wu music? He's Chinese but trained in Korea to create the boy band Exo.

Education systems are weird and apparently have monstrous great holes. Most kids in Europe and North America grow up knowing about animals that live elsewhere. They show up frequently in picture books for cryin' out loud. What is going on in Korea that the kids don't know the animals?

No. During what little time I've given to listening to music I've listened to North American and British tunes.

They know many animals... Asian animals... African animals... Australian animals... the English books they use at school and at our academy are Anerican, and the kids know American animals. They just seem to not know quintessentially Canadian animals.
