Everyone and their mother is thankful for family, friends, good health and good food on Thanksgiving. But do we ever really consider how truly blessed we are to EXIST, period?
A TIME Magazine article reflecting on Obama’s administration urged the reader to ‘consider the alternate realities;’ to see presidencies not only in terms of what has been done or has failed to pass, but also in terms of what COULD have happened or failed to happen.
For a moment, imagine the parallel universes in which we’d stayed in Vietnam; wherein Kennedy mishandled (moreso than some critics might claim) the Cuban missile crisis; in which the New Deal hadn’t been implemented. The article concludes that while anyone can pick at the existing faults of our current president and his predecessor, you have to appreciate all they’ve done once you stop and consider all the worse, alternate realities that they’ve prevented from coming to pass.
This got me thinking. How fucking lucky am I to be the REAL Will Jeong and not some alternate reality Will! Of all the limitless alternate Will Jeongs out there, floating in the void of non-reality, I alone was blessed with the opportunity to transcend nothingness and step into actual being. All those other poor Wills will never be anything more than mere hypotheses; theories to be excogitated by the real me in idle times, and even less in all the rest.
This Thanksgiving, I gave thanks for the fact that I exist. When I think of the alternate reality Wills that could be living it up in whatever twisted, Twilight-Zone world they would be living in, I can’t help but be glad that I am the chosen one.

Kids’ shows have gotten more awesome since I left them.
Just to clarify, this isn’t Adult Swim. This is PG Cartoon Network.
Just a while ago, North Korea conducted a bombing operation on a South Korean island, and there was an exchange of fire in response to casualties and property damage.
.__. It makes me a bit tense every time something like this happens. The UN and the controlling nations in the Koreas are usually pretty good about keeping shit like this under control, but it’s such a charged political atmosphere that you can’t help but wonder when someone will cross the line; go too far; step past the point of no return.
Pops asks me sometimes what I’d do if it ever came down to a war between my nation, America, and his; Korea. It seems silly to me at those moments, when all is well in the world, but it’s a reality that I might one day find myself on the receiving end of orders to wage war on North Koreans.
Edit: What the fuck, news reports. First it’s dozens of missiles, then 50, then 200? Sensationalism can I get a whut whuut~
This, but in a manlier color and font. Think IMPACT or ARIAL BOLD, on maybe blue, or gold. Perhaps HELVETICA if you’re feeling it.
I digress. Ask away, mein kind! Whatever strikes your whim.
Also, what is FMKS.

For some reason Pops never bothered to tell me this until now, but it turns out that just eight days after I was born, the Rodney King verdict incited the 1992 LA Riot.
I was eight days old, and shit was going all sorts of crazy everywhere in the city, including in Koreatown, where our family shared an apartment with another family of koreans.
The LAPD were amassed at the riot zone, staring down the rioters but unwilling or unable to lash out for fear of inciting even more anger.The few police squads that remained anywhere else in the city were powerless to stop the masses of looters that seemingly surged out of the city’s underbelly. Pops remembers personally when the first armed looters arrived at the apartments, two policemen hopped into their car and drove off.
This is where shit gets real. Across the streets from the apartment we lived in, was a marketplace/plaza thing. And in that marketplace was the only gun store in Koreatown. I remember when I was five I’d walk by that very gun store and think, “cool, one day I’ll buy a gun.”
Gangs and looters had cleared the entire supermarket across the parking lot in just an hour, and had turned their sights on the gun store. My dad and his friends, along with some other volunteers, had locked and barricaded that shit up and were engaged in a standoff with armed gangs in the parking lot for days before the National Guard arrived to restore order. If those guns had gotten into the hands of rioters, looters and thugs, a lot of people might’ve died.
Where was I during all this?
I was eight days old and could barely open my eyes. :3

Time again to indulge in this most deliciously offensive of tumblr traditions.
Whenever I see a “cute couple” on the streets, in a picture, on tv, etc…
I think, “they’ve done anal.”
BOOM. Cuteness over. This factoid brought to you by TMI Tuesday!
