Also good to enjoy a sound doenjang jjigae after overdoses of delicious cheese and kofte.
|40 degrees in Paris. How do we frogs fight the heat? |

And finally, "good" to see that nothing has changed while I was away:
- In South Korea, Samsung narrowly won the votes needed to pass the C and T - Cheil Industries merger. Elliott Management hasn't given up yet.
- In Japan, Shinzo Abe won the non-vote for his war bill, bypassing democracy to force the restoration of militarism down the country's throat in spite of a majority opposing it (see "Japan taking a stand against ABEIGNomics?").
- In North Korea, Kim Jong-un's regime won local elections with a 99.97% turnout, and a 100% approval rate. In total transparency, the dictator holds one ballot paper in each hand, just to make sure:
|For Kim Jong-un like for any other dictator, elections are always a walk in the park (20150723 - twitter.com/theseoulvillage/status/624129742157971456)|
Democracy-wise, we're all EARS (East Asia Respiratory Syndrome).
Of course, Europe remains an even better model of governance. Note that one of the Europe in the Greek mythology gave birth to a few of the famous Danaides - you know, the young ladies who murdered their husbands, and have ever since been forced to fill with water a pierced jar.
