big shithole

My buddy Tom sends me a link to a Yahoo! News article about a 74-year-old Korean dude in Suweon whose house is shaped like a toilet. I shit you not. The article says in part:

Before [owner Sim Jae-duck] moves in, anyone who is flush with funds can rent [the house] for 50,000 dollars a day -- with proceeds going to his campaign to provide poor countries with proper sanitary facilities.

I think this is a noble undertaking, but given the number of truly nasty toilets in Korea, I'd say... physician, heal thyself. Then, and only then, can Korea worry about the rest of the world.

(Including some of the skanky rest station facilities along Route 95 going north from DC to New York.)
