Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

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

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

Sympathy and shame in South Korea

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…
