Sometimes I prefer someone who is an out and out apologist(at least they have an opinion),rather than some people like Anda and Schwa,who try to ride both sides of the fence.Apparently Anda is comfortable...and I bet Schwa is comfy too in his(her?) nice little beach resort at Sokcho.
Too bad some people are satisfied to preserve the status quo...when the status quo stinks.

"Mo-Mo twins.." Your wit, sir, sends me into shame. How can a peon such as I compete with your Wildean urbanity and sharp-edged sense of satire?

Does it have something to do with that QB Doug Flutie,who went to Canada to play football? Nah,I don't follow American football much anymore.Actually,at first,I though "flutieflakes" might be some kind of obscure pun on "Frootloops"(that cereal advertised by the big toucan)...or something.
I used to follow baseball,until they spoiled it with too much expansion and then interleague play.

mody ba,

i am assuming that you are american.............not knowing who or what "flutie flakes" is must mean you have been away from home a little too long....sure he played in the cfl but then proceeded to play for the buffalo bills and kick ass until politics once again got in his way as he was replaced by 'knob' johnson (i.e. he's too small, not a strong enough arm etc.)......now at 40 plus he still kicking around the league in san diego.....

So now we know the "flutie"part emanates from Mr.Doug Flutie...but where does the "flakes" come in? Seriously, a lot of people ,even in the US,do not follow football that seriously.However, I do remember (from back when I DID follow football) that the "knocK" on Flutie was always that he was too small...

No disagreement, flakes, the little *beep* IS one hell of a QB. Now let's all get back on topic about accomodation in Korea. Doug Flutie never had to worry about that....

Well,why not?Everybody else seems to be trying it.It can be his next "career" after he finally retires from football.I did not mean to impugn in any way his football prowess.And now I know "flakes" refers to a breakfast food named in his honor,and not a designation for his loyal followers'"Yay,Flutieflakes,unite!"
Now we have that issue out of the way,or something Laughing let's listen to Mr.Moseley and get back to the accommodation issue.What is the latest on this new"studio sweatbox" scam they are purportedly trying to pull?
