South Korean Woman Fails Driving Test 771 Times

Thursday, February 05, 2009

SEOUL, South Korea — A woman in South Korea who has taken the written exam required for a driver's license nearly every day since 2005 has failed again — but is hoping attempt No. 772 will be the charm.

The aspiring driver took her first test in April 2005, according to Choi Young-chul, an official at the North Jeolla Province driver's license agency in Jeonju, 150 miles south of Seoul.

She has taken the test a record 771 times, most recently on Monday, but has yet to pass. She said she plans to take the test again but did not say when, he said Thursday.

The 68-year-old has spent $3,000 on fees for the test, he said. Applicants must score at least 60 on the written exam before they can get behind the wheel for a driving test. Choi says she's scored as high as 50.

"I feel sorry every time I see Cha fail. When she passes, I'll make a memorial tablet myself and give it to her," Park Jung-seok, a traffic police officer at the agency, told the Korea Times newspaper.

No other details about her identity were released other than her family name, Cha.

What is up Elderly people.

So today is how can an elderly person test your nerves day. I was at the post office. I had to wait in line because as is tradition only people go to their post office at noon. That is is. I think the hours should be change from 11:30- 1:30, because when else do people really go. So as I was 15 people deep, a lady walks up to me and says, " I am not waiting in a line." Granted she was second from the front. Then she goes on to ask me, " Where can I cash a check?" What? I know most people use banks these days, but your at the post office. The post office is for mailing packages, or if your desperate asking the rates of 300 different packages to everywhere, U.S.A. So I in my infinite wisdom choose to respond by saying, "I tend to use the bank". Well I guess that would have helped most people, but she just looked at me funny, huffed, and said, "Where is a bank? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rules of Engagement at the restaurant.

Rule 1: If in a group of more than two people, always have enough cash on hand if you do not intend to pay the bill.

Rule 2. Somehow figure out who has neglected to pay their fair portion of the bill.

Rule 3. Get a separate check or have check grouped into what everyone ordered separately.

I need someone to explain how you go to restaurants and the money put in is never enough to cover the bill or the tip. If you go out with a group of 6 or more people watch to see how accurate this scenario actually is.

It's been awhile.

Blogger land. I have been on a sabbatical from the peps of blogger. I have been busy. Raising a kid, going to work, hanging with Becky, going to college, watching the Brewers self-destruct and then make it into the playoffs, (Who Knew that would happen?) then to exit the playoffs as quickly as they entered. I have seen a former football icon in this state just act like a complete moron. So all in all it has been busy. I am cranking out a 3.5 GPA in school. I think all things considered that is an amazing achievement in itself. My bowling is not up to speed as of yet. I am embarrassed to say three weeks ago I shot a 465 series. Yes that was a three game total. I am dealing with some mechanical issues(yes, there is a science to bowling. Who knew?) that have not been fixed as of yet. With 64 shopping days till Christmas, this last part of the year should be a blast. Still to come my thoughts on baseball out east, and WOW, New York is GINORMOUS!!!!!!!.

What did we do before the Internet?????

The end of the Internet is near — and in less than three years, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The reason? More than 85% of the available addresses have already been allocated and the OECD predicts we will have run out completely by early 2011.
These aren’t the normal web addresses you type into your browser’s window, and which were recently freed up by Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the body responsible for allocating domain names, to allow thousands of new internet domains ending in, for instance, .newyork, .london or .xxx.
Beneath those names lie numerical Internet protocol addresses that denote individual devices connected to the internet. These form the foundation for all online communications, from e-mail and web pages to voice chat and streaming video.
When the current IP address scheme was introduced in 1981, there were fewer than 500 computers connected to the Internet. Its founders could be forgiven for thinking that allowing for a potential 4 billion would last for ever. However, less than 30 years later, the Internet is rapidly running out. Every day thousands of new devices ranging from massive web servers down to individual mobile phones go online and gobble up more combinations and permutations.

“Shortages are already acute in some regions,” says the OECD. “The situation is critical for the future of the internet economy.”
As addresses run dry we will all feel the pinch: Internet speeds will drop and new connections and services will either be expensive or simply impossible to obtain. The solution to the IP address shortage is an upgrade to new addresses that can accommodate our hunger for online connectivity. Such a system, called IPv6, was agreed more than a decade ago, providing enough addresses for billions upon billions of devices as well as improving Internet phone and video calls, and possibly even helping to end e-mail spam.
