In an effort to consolidate my blog posts (and create content with minimal effort), here are some items pulled from my tumblr trial run of early 2010.

A fun typing experiment

Here’s a fun game.

Click your address bar, then, as fast as you can, go go goggle.com. That’s goggle, as in swimming goggles.

For some reason shelves full of neatly stacked stationery make me happy.

The G20 is just an excuse for a photo-op and a cocktail party, but we’re not invited. It’s unequal and really drives home the point about who has power in this society. We have a fence, the interruption of our lives, soldiers in the streets and armed helicopters in the sky. On one side of that fence is us, the underlings, and on the other side, the, for lack of a better term, aristocracy. They’ve drawn a line right down the middle of our supposedly egalitarian society, told us to pay for it and they’re getting away with it.

We can receive the S. Korean TV signal better than its North Korean counterpart in the Haeju area,” Kim said, “TV sets are pre-tuned by the North Korean authorities to limit the access to TV channels. However, that does not bother us because we can use a stick.” (North Koreans call a remote control as a stick) In the border areas with China and South Korea such as Hwanghae and Kangwon Province, the North Korean authorities try to prevent people from watching S. Korean TV by soldering and pre-tuning TV sets to Chonsun (North Korea) Central TV. Lately, the authorities also attempt to restrict the usage of remote control by covering the sensor with silver paper. However, North Korean people circumvent the regulation. Instead of giving away their remote control to the authorities, they purchase an extra and watch the TV as they please after removing the silver paper. After all, the authorities’ efforts to control TV channels turn out to be futile for those who have remote control TV sets.
