To hangeul: wasn't that created by King Sejeong in the 15th century, but scholars thought too feminine, preferring Hanja (like hiragana vs kanji in japan)?

Kim Jong nam(?), if he had become the Paramount Leader of North korea, would likely face a coup if he tried to open up. He would need to do gradually or face a kruschevian exit or a gorbachevian exit + dissolution.

The emperor was always seen as evil and couldn't just be a guy who was trying to do the right thing, ends justify the means...same with the henchmen and DV.

He was trying to be his own govt. The Americans trained Osama bin laden to fight the Soviets and created Al Qaeda. This man should identify as the American govt so he can never be tried for treason or war crimes.

Posted in: New unlimited cat subscription service in Japan blasted online See in context

Many who disagree with the service will suddenly go silent when asked to take the cats in. Much better than a shelter which may kill the cats if no one adopts within a certain time frame. Geez. Imagine if orphanages were run that way. "Sorry, Suzi, its been a whole month and no one's adopted you. Now hold still, it'll only hurt for a second." Sad

I wonder if people debating whether this man should have been arrested for "just asking a creepy question" would still be doing so if it were their own child involved"

This reminds me of a yes, minister episode. The pm talks about regional relocation and all the civil servants say they're for it in principle, but that it would be just too hard.

How about ending the addiction to long school days, cram schools, and homework? 8am to 4pm at the latest for all schooling. 4pm and after should be play and family time.

I think he's trying to say that both same sex marriage and pædo marriage are both illegal in japan. Opening one could open the other in japan. Not giving my opinion, just what I think the other is saying.

If the govt can give tax breaks for millionaires and spend money on ukraine war and other adventures, it can spend money for higher wages.
