That's good to hear. Are you tall, or are your ceiling beams low?

I'm about 6'2" to 6'3", not really sure? I banged my head in the dog kennels, which have fairly low ceilings...It won't happen again, once is enough ::)

Korean commercials are not short on suggestive imagery.  I feel ashamed to have not hit the "skip ad" function on youtube

So, apparently, I'm to receive 300 bucks from the government for my compulsory participation in voting in an election... My parents told me not to talk about it, because the government might think I'm doing it for my money, not for patriotic reasons and whatnot, but damn, 300 bucks. We've been living on hard times recently. 300 dollars would make it easier for me to get by (my parents received higher sums of cash, naturally).

You know anything about this, jdc? Since you're in my country and all.

Not heard about it but doesn't surprise me.  Hopefully it doesn't influence you or others too much who they want to vote for.  I have dinner with a few friends this Friday, I will ask if they received such things. 

Certainly the system seems very biased coming from an understanding of the US system though I can't say I have ever voted maybe after my 8th grade class president election since it is not required.
