Check your electronic mailbox, I'm sure there are a few messages that have been rotting away over the past several years. That may explain the smell. Do the climate a service you poor excuse for a meat popsicle.

Glad to see you haven't been convicted yet, sir.


Ahhh, this does feel like the right place to be with that welcome. Well said.

Hi!
I'm Ben. I've known C for around... hm... since I was in 6th grade? So it must be getting close to 15-6 years now.
Anyway, he told me if I didn't come hang out he would burn my house down.

Soooo here I am^^

I'm 29, and I live in Seoul, South Korea. On our way to the round of 16 in the world cup atm.. woo woo (^_^)/
I have degrees in East Asian Culture and Japanese from the University of Oklahoma, and a degree in Linguistics from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan.
That turned into an ESL career that I'm loving to death, and will probably do forever. I now work for a ridiculously expensive English Institute and life couldn't be better :)

In my free time I usually play tennis, rhythm games, fighters (SSFIV, T6 atm), mess with my tech stuff, play on the internet.. pretty much.. normal nerd stuff?^^;

Love: friendly people, beer, and good gaming competition.
Hate: mean people, confrontation, spicy food.
Fav Color: Green

Vitals: 63Kg, 179cm, B Type (blood and personality), Bld Hair, Hazel Eyes, Caucasian Mutt.

...I think that's it. I can't think of anything else introduction worthy.

Ciaossu~/

-Ben

Welcome! And thanks for saving me the price of that plane ticket. :rbg:

Must be kind of rough being in Korea and not doing spicy. There are plenty of non-spicy things of course but seems like something spicy will always turn up in every meal. Welcome though!

Heh, yeah I was a little worried about that at first <(^_^;)

I can handle normal spicy stuff though.. when I say I hate spicy food, I mean I hate -challenge- food.
Basically anything that's so spicy people hand it to you with a giant grin on their face while your friends giggle behind them.

I don't mind a little zing, which you're right is most of the food here; I just don't get taste bud masochism ;_;

That's not food, that's a gustatory offensive. ("Gustatory" is not a word I get to use often.)


I have a particular liking for chipotle, myself. Habanero's good too, but it's really difficult to find the balance where I can detect the actual flavor without being distracted by wondering if my tongue has been set on fire. My little container of habanero chile powder has lasted for at least three years now....

True, a good chili paste/sauce will have more to it than heat, it will have flavor. That is why those hot sauce extracts stink.

I am hunting the elusive ghost chili myself. I found some online sites that claim to sell it but it is also counterfeited a lot. Copying chili peppers is pretty sad.

A friend of mine who can't feel pain stuck a ghost chilli or something similarly hot - making him insane and stupid - in his nostril on a dare once, and started bleeding. :|

Oh, and 179 centimetres and 63 kilograms? Jesus Christ. I'm only six or seven centimetres taller than that, but I weigh over 40 kilograms more than you do. :?

Then again, I am a bear, after all.

Heh, yeah I'm a stick atm ^^;

I've gained a few kilos over the past week though, and the goal right now is to get up to 79~ish.
Think it'll take me at least 3-4 months to do it properly.. ><;

I can't imagine what it's going to look like on my frame to be honest. I have freakin' bird bones.

But I am sure it was tasty blood...? It does sound masochistic to eat one let alone plug orifices with them.

Google's search also does unit conversions.

Don't hand feed him his answers! Make him learn how to find the answers himself or he'll never learn!

I didn't tell him how to convert from inches to feet and inches, does that count? :-P

Wow, Cylor, you told me you'd trimmed your beard, but... shit. That look's a lot more Mexican-y than what I'd expected from you.

Har de har. :P

(BTW, "trimmed" in this case does not mean "shaved", but is more analagous to "trimming the lawn". :lol: )

In my case it's like driving a plough through a field covered in razor wire.

I can see that introductions didn't take long to plummet into facial hair comparisons.

And Ben, hello. It's been far too long.
