Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

If you’re using another browser, I’m sorry. I don’t find fixing browser quirks very interesting, I do enough of it professionnally.

Sympathy and shame in South Korea
2007/4

By BURT HERMAN, Associated Press Writer Fri Apr 20, 6:23 PM ET

SEOUL, South Korea - The reaction to the Virginia Tech massacre in the nation where the shooter was born has been an outpouring of sympathy mixed with feelings of shame. There are also concerns that going too far in apologizing would make it appear South Korea is unjustifiably taking some blame for the killings.

President Roh Moo-hyan has expressed condolences four times, the first before it even emerged the culprit was a South Korean immigrant, followed by words of sympathy to the American people and to President Bush.

J’attends le jour où les américains vont s’excuser pour toutes les personnes tuées par leurs compatriotes à l’étranger (Iraq anyone??). Comme c’est mentionné plus tard dans l’article, je tiens à rappeler que le tireur d’ORIGINE sud-coréenne a passé ses QUATORZE dernières années aux stazunis…
