it seems odd that when I google Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, The phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" doesn't immediately accompany it. That seems odd to me. You would think when you google Seungmin Cho the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" would be the first thing that popped up.

Try it yourself. Search Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up.

It's not just Koreans. I was shocked to learn Dr. Dre got his PhD online.

Haha, this thread is now the first link the Google finds. Great work, and welcome to my favorites list.

But you didn't include his american name, which is Samuel


We're talking about Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant, right? We're supposed to Googles Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up? I just want to make sure we're talking about the right Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant and not some other Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant.

Christian Bale
Bondith: Students also typically write a thesis to attain a master's, and yet Lee admitted that he never wrote one. (His program didn't require a thesis.)

Ahhh, so it wasn't a real Master's.

Still sucks that some jerkwad ruined this guy's life and shat upon his legitimate accomplishments (real or not, getting two degrees in less time than it normally takes to get one is still an accomplishment) out of petty jealousy.


Is that as confoundingly stupid as you wrote it, or is there even more stupid lurking behind it that we can't see?


*sigh*
I probably shouldn't bite, but...

The first was me faux-snarking. I have an M.Sc. (the hardest of the hard-core thesis programs), so I tend to look down on any other Master's degree in quasi-good-natured interdisciplinary rivalry. The next bit was a "But seriously, folks" moment where I put the snark aside and gave kudos to the guy in not only getting an accelerated degree but attaining distinction over and over the requirements.

Now go fark yourself.

So you read on the internets that Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, said that and immediately began witch-hunt


Do you mean to say that I read on the internet that Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, said "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" and then started a witch hunt like the one Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, inflicted on his cousin?

I would say two posts do not constitute a witch hunt. And if Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, were to be subject to such a thing it would undoubtedly be called a biatch hunt.

rwfan: (Pardon the misuse of the phrase but) this story really begs the question, was part of the hate towards this guy due to the fact that he gained fame as a rap artist? Perhaps that is a little too american, particularly african american, for the haters to stomach.


Not really. Stylistically rap in Korea refers strictly to the quick 'singing' style. It doesn't hold the negative, or self centered theme that american pop and rap holds.
Epik High is one of the less controversial groups in Korea. Topics are not sexual or violent. Often highlighting legitimate social issues that should be addresses like suicide (look for there song One), social abandonment of the disabled (Run), and monsters that eat your girlfriend (Wannabe).

On one hand, this was a viscious and cruel thing to do, with tons of outright false accusations.

On the other hand, it's K-pop, so at some level it's justified.
