Question of the Day

Q: What do a rainbow sherbert brownie sundae and Jack Bauer have in Common?
A: The both successfully challenge conventional wisdom.

Allow me to explain, now at first sound, hearing rainbow sherbert, brownie, chocolate sauce, and strawberries might lead people to the conclusion that all the alcohol in this country has finally lead me to fall off the deep end but I challenge that thought with this, have you ever tried it? The flavors might sound a little bizarre but I'm sure at one point in history people probably thought that dough, a dairy product and meat from a dead pig was probably pretty gross also but yet millions of pizzas are now consumed daily across the the world. There are few things in the world that I enjoy more than a quality sherbert, can't really tell you where it all started, perhaps it was the Carvel ice cream store near my hosue in Bridgeport, CT where I grew up but all I know is, it tastes damn good. Next step, who doesn't like chocolate? If you're thinking to yourself that you don't then maybe you should just move to Russia with all the other commie bastards. Strawberries are tasty little treats and anything that contains fruit must be healthy right? Right! So let's now look at the whole picture, delicious ice cream, gooey, chocolatey brownie, and fresh fruit to top it all off, this equation leads me to the conclusion that if there is a God out there, She truly loves me. Next up Jack Bauer, the incomparable slayer of all things evil on the 5th greatest show of my lifetime.

#1= The Simpsons
#2= Sportscenter
#3= The Wonder Years
#4= Lost
#5= 24
The Shield almost make the list but the tie-breaker came down to more attractive family and no one on the Shield came within a country mile of Jack's daughter Kim, played by the insatiable Elisha Cuthbert who also happens to share a birthday with me. So there!

I didn't start to watch the show until season 5 but it took all of 49 seconds to have me completely hooked, I then spent the following Christmas break watching all 4 seasons on DVD in the span of about 9 days, occassionally taking bathroom and food breaks, but I was forced to do so. He's had everyone in the world try to kill him at one point or another but he never stops, never lets up and apparently never sleeps either. He's the world's most functional insomniac. The whole show is geared around his challenging of conventional wisdom, people say the President couldn't be involved in a plot to release nerve gas on the American public but Jack proves them wrong. People say that he's died, twice, but Jack comes back and proves them wrong. People say that no one would ever detonate an atomic bomb in downtown Los Angeles but Jack proves them wrong and stops it in the process. You get the idea. I don't know how he does it, but I don't question it, he's Jack friggin Bauer. What I do know is season 7 just started and he's back at it, better than ever. If you're not watching, do yourself a favor and start, the world needs him.

No onto Korea. I know I promised to write more regularly but I've gotta admit it's been a little tough coming up with new material lately, I don't know if it's blogger's block or what but I've gotten into such a routine and become so used to the everyday goings on in Korea that not much takes me by surprise anymore. Just to let you knwo how difficult it's been to come up with new things to write about I actually debated beating up an elderly man the other day just so I'd have something to write about, all I know is that guy's lucky my train came when it did. My winter camp is going well, I took on a new challenge this week by tutoring one of the science teachers at my school and today's class involved a 2 hour discussion about shopping and I have no idea how I survived it. I did go on a 20 minute rant on the evils of Wal-Mart and I'm pretty sure I scared the teacher during it. Last Thursday my trivia team was victorious and we look to build on that with another victory tomorrow night. The upcoming weekend will be extremely tame as my bank account is in complete lockdown mode due to the upcoming trip to Thailand, only 7 days away!

Be well Boston and beyond,

Intrigued in Incheon
