While it is an undoubtedly splendid idea to have a country permanently ruled by Kims, these North Korean Kims seem to be letting the side down somewhat.

The juxtaposition of these two quotes helps explain part of the problem:

North Korea warns the world: no change in policy under Kim Jong-un

“Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results”


  1. My friends and I love English teachers in China. Every Friday night, we get ready tight and beat the shit out of them. They’re all little fairies anyway.

  3. Thanks pretty harsh Gary. We do a thankless job here in China. My collegues are all good people.

  4. “I think the purpose of Ishihara was to irritate, if not infuriate, the Chinese,” said Kuni Miyake, a former Japanese diplomat, who now runs the think-tank Foreign Policy Institute in Tokyo.

    “The Chinese response was exactly what he wanted

  5. @Alexi, the issue has nothing to do with whether foreign English teachers in China are good people or not.

    The problem is that teaching English in China is all about keeping Chinese kids amused and that gets old after a few months. The real teachers are working in Hong Kong, international schools, or back in Blighty.

    Teaching English in China is a waste of an education and a terrible waste of life whether you’re a good person or not.

  6. Any grown man who accepts money from the fucking Chinese to entertainment their students like a circus clown is a complete loser. The biggest problem with all these foreign losers in China is that they have no pride. If they did, they’d have to commit suicide. There is more pride in being on the dole in Blighty than being a performing white monkey in China. Disgraceful! All of you should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

  7. @Amelia, Patch–Not everyone can be a doctor, lawyer or even a real teacher. I’ve been an English teacher in China for four years. I’m grateful to have the job and a place of my own to live in even if all I really do is wheedle students into practising their speaking skills with me. All my friends who stayed at home and scoffed at me when I said I was moving to China are still unemployed and living with their parents. The joke is on them.
