It's about Men + violence. If so, must be about Toddler + violence? Wrong idea about gender equality issue.


I saw this tweet:

And I felt 'it wasn't bad thought' but I don't think it can help gender equality issue or can help reduce gun violence in USA.


So I will simply prove 'why that is':

Fact: Toddlers Killed More Americans than Terrorists in 2015.

That facts are true. So base on the fact, I can say that it's about toddler + violence.

So does make sense to you?


So how it will help gender equality issue? And how it can reduce gun violence in USA?

Illogical idea ruled internet--especially social networking sites.


When I login to tumblr, I saw below post as today's blog:

screenshot of (@tyleroakley) tumblr's post
The Weeknd Hair tweeted - "if you cheat on ya girl once a month thats only 12/365 days..you still 97% faithful. That's an A+"
Thanksgiving Kirkey tweeted - "Actually, if you ever read the syllabus, getting caught cheating results in an automatic 0%"
source: http://tyleroakley.com/post/158464093506


Three hundred twenty six thousands and six hundred nine people are shared--reblogged or liked this post or reacted this post.



If you think that is good excuse or funny, I will ask this:
So you are saying your are soooo handsome and cool guy that you can hook up a girl in a second? And make romantic involvement in a day?
And you are saying you are staying--not going to work or even go work with her?--with your girlfriend for 24 hours a day and 365 days a year? And you are saying you think about her every moment for 365 days a year?
* Are you Korean? Not whole Korean couples do but many, probably young couples do video call(or voice call) for long hours. Some of them even turn on video call during their work.

If that’s the case, you can say one day(not once, exact amount for one day) a month cheating on her for one year should 12/365 days. If not, you have completely wrong idea about real life.

And don’t think about some illogical way to excuse yourself for do some bad things.

And stop reading those gibberish ideas from internet--especially social networking sites. And stop thinking that those gibberish and rubbish ideas are funny.

P.S. See. Those gibberish and rubbish ideas became extremely famous. But so many good ideas or very important things like society and political issues, people made them to shut up--those are very negative things they said.
I remember a few weeks or a month ago, so many people talked about Trump's wrongdoing. But now they all--even I can call it completely shut up in social media. He was doing same thing but social media, especially people shut up about it because people saying they were sooo upset to see negative things.
People became more and more mindless.. Of course, that's why Zombie movies and Zombie TV shows are soooo popular.


P.S. Slightly different but almost same story - This is the reality---how Apple fanboy dominated this world. - Reality of web storage service. @ March 29, 2017 - my other blog.

Gangnam subway station, so much space for making money, so little space for the people--toilet



Gangnam subway station, so much space for making money, so little space for the people--toilet #1



This is Sinbundang line's Gangnam subway station.
You have to wait for the using the toilet because very small toilet and this area was one of busiest and crowded area in Seoul.

Compare to the toilet, as you can see the photo that huge public area and those places were filled up with huge advertisement--screen.

Korean version 한글 - 비싼 신분당선. 비싼 땅속 강남땅. 그래서 화장실은 줄서서 이용. @ March 3, 2017




P.S. This can be one example about the capitalism. Here they think about 'money comes first' so they don't think about anything else. Only put more place for the making money.
Who spent money there? Who was watching those advertisement? People, right?
So if you want to make people to spend money, you have to make convenient and comfortable place for the people.

Why I wrote this blog post, you think? Because they thought about 'making money only, nothing else'.

Simply I can put this as bad product. Do you think bad product can make good profit?
If you think that, I don't have anything say to you. Stop reading my writings please.

It's not capitalism problem. More and more people are only focusing on the money.

Terrorism facts are there. But nobody believe or can see that.

This is my initial thought on this:
Figure was there probably 10+ years. But strangely nobody knew about it.


It was very strange. Because whenever some mass shooting(or similar thing) was happening in United States of America, I am hearing it's terrorist attack--probably all the time.
I don't really read any newspaper or news websites but I still get the news from my facebook or twitter timeline.
Also I can see so many blame going on toward to Muslim.


But once in a while, I saw this kind of post:

Source: The Freakonomics Of Extreme Extreme Vetting by Todd R. Miller @ Sep 02, 2016


This is actually nothing new because it probably has been there after 9/11.
Here is the other one that I've seen it before--at least, a few years ago.
src: BBC News - Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence @ 5 January 2016
Source: Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence - BBC News @ 5 January 2016

Those stats were all came from government so it was very reliable source.

I can't remember when I've seen similar one before. (I'm not digging up this time.) But every year government release that stats so I can guess--probably exist around 2012 or 2013.


More recent one you can easily find in CNN website:

This is tweet from CNN:


This is the stats:

That's until 2013. And this one is until 2014.



This is the stats:

Source: CNN - American deaths in terrorism vs. gun violence in one graph by Eve Bower @ October 3, 2016



Gun violence was almost 1,000+ times more but they don't seem to bother....

1,000+ times more were exclude year 2001 stats. Include year 2001--it became 100+ times more.

BBC news said like this:
According to figures from the US Department of Justice and the Council on Foreign Affairs, 11,385 people died on average annually in firearm incidents in the US between 2001 and 2011.
In the same period, an average of 517 people were killed annually in terror-related incidents. Removing 2001, when 9/11 occurred, from the calculation produces an annual average of just 31.
quote from Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence - BBC News @ 5 January 2016


And you can read BBC's article--Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence - BBC News @ 5 January 2016, which you can find about the statistics behind violence--such as mass shootings, school shootings, homicide rate, etc.

So above figure prove this statement was right:
Gun violence and terrorism: The US spends more than a trillion dollars per year defending itself against terrorism, which kills a tiny fraction of the number of people killed by ordinary gun crime.
quote from Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence - BBC News @ 5 January 2016



Gun violence stats

If you do google search about gun violence, you can get this kind of result:
screenshot of Google search with gun violence @ January 31, 2017

How many people are killed each year by guns?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2013, there were 73,505 nonfatal firearm injuries (23.23 per 100,000 U.S. citizens); 11,208 homicides (3.5 per 100,000); 21,175 suicides; 505 deaths due to accidental/negligent discharge of a firearm; and 2818 deaths due to firearms-use with "undetermined ...

If I talked about this, it will be long. So I will just quote my tweet and


you can go Gun Violence Archive website and see it yourself.

And you can see year summary from Past Summary Ledgers in Gun Violence Archive website.

Now is year 2017 and one month was passed. As you can see their homepage--incidents were more than five thousands already.
screenshot of Gun Violence Archive website.



So you think those people were all killed by terrorist--Muslim?



I will keep this screenshot of past year's stats--for just in case.

...just sit there and let some rich men ruled whole country?


I've seen this tweet from @MelissaStetten:
It's Sunday. RT @aubrey_huff: I mean seriously what the hell is going on? If you have time 2 march, protest and riot. Maybe it's time for something called a job!
https://twitter.com/MelissaStetten/status/825928110130421760

So I re-tweeted with this:
If government won't listen people, what they do?
Just sit there! Let some rich men ruled whole country? That's what you call democratic.

RT @MelissaStetten: It's Sunday. RT @aubrey_huff: I mean seriously what the hell is going on? If you have time 2 march, protest and riot. Maybe it's time for something called a job!
https://twitter.com/thinklogically/status/825958064046043137

I wrote those yesterday afternoon. And I'd like to write about it so I was checking the source--tweet. But twitter said unavailable.


And I found that @aubrey_huff deleted tweet: Exclusive: Ex-Giants slugger Aubrey Huff apologizes for Twitter rant that began with pro-Trump tweet @ January 30, 2017.


I think it was lucky that I copied whole thing.


Anyway, march, protest and riot were part of democratic act, you know.
You probably don't believe riot wasn't democratic act but it is. Think about this: If president do things like dictator or king, people will go crazy, right? So if that happens, what angry(crazy) people will do, you think?

USA has banned 7 Muslim countries which USA is currently bombing 5 of them and....


One of my friend share this post from Muslims Are Not Terrorists facebook page:

screenshot from Muslims Are Not Terrorists facebook page
USA has banned 7 Muslim countries which includes Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Sudan and Somalia.
USA is currently bombing 5 of them and killed more than 1 million of them.
Source: https://www.facebook.com/MANTofficial/photos/a.210236958572.162395.206186953572/10155008927833573/

I was surprised. I probably can see those countries but I'm not sure about the figure. So I did some digging--not much though.

It looked like hard to find exact figure--I did very simple googling so I couldn't find, maybe.
Even if it was there nobody can tell exact figure because bombing--invasion is still going on.

But one thing I can say is those figure could be probably right because America dropped 26,171 bombs in 7 countries--it's not recent 4 to 5 years figure. Just last year alone--2016.




If you dropped a bomb, do you think it was perfectly possible with zero civilian casualty? Of course, it was always possible in Hollywood movie.
If you think that, I don't have anything to say to you. Don't read my writings please.

Not just 10 or 20.
Or 100 or 1,000 bombs.
It's 26,171 bombs in 2016.

In 2015, 23,144 bombs.



And this:
misconception about other country – story continue from The Image Hollywood Created of Africa @ December 5, 2015

Don't complain they are in dictatorship or inequality issue. You have your own inequality issue and dictatorship–through media brainwashed people and control them. You can't solve your country’s problem but you can solve other country's problem???
That's why you are brainwashed by media.

So 'invasion', we called 'war'.


If you are serious thinker, you should read this:

misconception about other country – story continue from The Image Hollywood Created of Africa

Originally I wrote this in my wordpress blog at December 5, 2015.
I moved to that wordpress blog because strange Koreans who read my Korean blogs(about learn English properly and other things) came to this blog for complain about my English--because Korea's English education systems are completely corrupted.

Now I am thinking about getting back here to continue. So I will write here.




article from The Image Hollywood Created of Africa | Films For Action


Part of reason is this: Majority people never even been to other country or they never meet people from other country. So they have no idea what it's like living in another world–another country. But media and some stupid propaganda making this huge misconception–that some country's people are inhuman or even call them as 'evil'.

Cultural differences became some kind of demonized act. These things, some political leader and media take advantage of it–no, unfortunately these people also brainwashed by media. So they think other country or other culture are evil so they have to destroy–correct them.

Don't complain they are in dictatorship or inequality issue. You have your own inequality issue and dictatorship–through media brainwashed people and control them. You can't solve your country's problem but you can solve other country's problem???
That’s why you are brainwashed by media.

So 'invasion', we called 'war'.





P.S. A few other factors:
– Travelling to other country doesn't mean understand other country's culture–some people know very little about other culture but they said they knew everything.
– Simple fact, media (and government agency) keep reporting that it's dangerous to travel some country. Think about the other side, if that country is so dangerous, how people live there? Have you ever even thought about this? We are all human being, after all. They are not evil, you know.
– Think about this. Do you think people will even read this? Just unknown guy's talk, why do people even bother, right?
And do you think people believe what I said? Or people will believe what newspaper, TV and magazine said.
Whatever it is, in the end, people will listen and believe (even follow them) what famous newspaper, magazine, TV said.
Unfortunately, that is the fact.

And this misunderstanding, misconception will continue.

If your society isn't so barbaric, how come your country always attacking other country?

Don't get me wrong. I am not big fan of some of Muslim's practice like women must wear hijab and other dress code and etc. (I actually don't like it but at least I am respecting their choices.)
And you can argue or discuss about it also fine. But if you talking like that kind of practice is pure barbaric thing to do, that's seriously wrong with your society. (Should I talk about how barbaric western's Catholic is? Try to research what Pope or priest done things. You can't solve the your problem but you are so right to attacking other religion?)

(Of course, that's how media brainwashed to the people with tagline 'Muslim is Evil'. And start invasion.)

So if your society isn't so barbaric, how come your country always attacking other country?
This world became more more pathetic.

I wrote this because I heard when someone describe about the practice with so much hatred in it and surprisingly talk show's host completely agree on that–It means their producer and people and their channel agree that it is right to hate the Muslim, isn't it?



I wrote this at 8:42pm 12 December 2013 in my facebook account here.



P.S. Many of western media attacking Muslim. And then so deceivingly put slogan like 'world peace'. Are you kidding me?

Of course, most problem is people fell for it.

My english got worse and worse.

I came back to Korea around end of November 2007 so I haven't been speaking or writing English almost 3 years now. Yes, sometimes, I spoke English but not for long.
And my writing English skill wasn't good at all. Truthfully, it was really bad.

Now I really need something to write in English and my horrible written English makes me crazy. :-(
I did thought about recording it or make video but my English was horrible so I couldn't afford to do that, either.

Oh, maybe you don't understand what rubbish I am talking about. so here is one of good example. I couldn't even spell out "suffering" so I have to find out from dictionary. :-(

Darn. I'm seriously hoping that there has real English town in Korea so I could go there and practice my English again.

I am really missing the Cameron Highland in Malaysia. Because that is my favourite place for writing. You can look at some photo from here
