Beloved readers: I am not really sure how I painted myself into the "blogs are fully researched documentaries" corner, but I no longer wish to write those. So for now, I shall use this space for brief observations from daily life on a university-owned mountaintop in rural Korea.
Today's Korean newspaper reports that a small fishing boat hit a huge reefer ship in the night. In a strange decision by the writers (and editor), this little detail was reported:
"One sailor was found around 1:25am. He was not breathing and did not have a pulse. He died soon after."
Huh. Yup. Sounds dead to me.
P.S. I had to look up "reefer ship." And, indeed, it is NOT a big old marijuana transportation device, but a refrigerated cargo ship. Ah.
