I’m kind of surprised they used the correct Korean flag. At any rate, I soon moved on to better views.

How are the dregs of the weekend treating you? I did my writing this morning, so now I’m playing Kerbal Space Program. I bought the new expansion and started a new career mode game; I’m trying to make it to (and, the tricky part, from) the Mün.

This Is How You Do It

I applaud this woman. But I also remember that last year someone was stabbed while doing something similar, so each situation is different.

I am ashamed to say this happened in Colorado, but happily, another Coloradoan stood up and the sheriff arrested the offender.

BTW, if you’re on twitter, follow @_SJPeace_ StanceGrounded, he’s a good guy: “Also, if you don’t know a Muslim or have one as a friend, more than welcome to follow me. Trying to dispel Muslim stereotypes and End the hate. One Love”
