Korean Food Part 1- Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice-uh. Also, salt.

My friends in the US all loved Korean food, no matter where they were from. I'd had it on a few occasions and it never made an impression on me. It was just unmarinated ribeye slathered in the same fucking sauce every time and grilled, like BBQ but less inspired. For what it was, it cost way too much.

I've come to love Korean food in my short time here, because it's delicious, cheap, and makes it easy for me to keep my low-carb high fat diet.

But there are some oddities. Let me explain:

I find Koreans to be a very proud, ethnocentric people. They are very homogenous and relatively isolated, which leads them to believe funny things like Fan Death. When it comes to their food, they think their spicy food is really spicy. 

I haven't had respect for the Korean definition of spiciness since I won a kim-chi eating contest in high school.

How a Korean Teacher Gets Fired

On The Best of Sett

I have the displeasure of working 'with' this piece of shit ajeosshi. He doesn't have the stereotypical slant eyes, balding hair, wrinkled skin, dead tooth, and despite being blessed with all the properties of a normal human, he still manages to be one of the most repulsive organisms I have ever seen. When he showed up late and then left our class, I was fucking pissed, but I realize that his absence is a blessing now. I am as grateful for it as I am for the rise of the sun and the statute of limitations.

The school knows how much he sucks so they've had him teaching music for the last two years to a class that's 50% mentally retarded. It's their idea of damage control, akin to the USSR pouring concrete over Chernobyl, and it's not a bad one. Retards don't have a chance in this society.
