@Wood-Ape - OK/MN well they were scared of you duh lol

2018-12-30 04:01:32 UTC  

I had to get real rural for a reaction

2018-12-30 04:02:19 UTC  

Wood, that's because they thought you were a fuckin' giant (you are)

2018-12-30 04:02:29 UTC  

Big if true

2018-12-30 04:02:44 UTC  

Bruh I think you were taller than a good 99% of the native population

2018-12-30 04:03:01 UTC  

taller than 99% of people in general

2018-12-30 04:03:09 UTC  

Their anime looks like us

2018-12-30 04:03:38 UTC  

The Asians that did freak out (I guess Japanese are too polite) were South Asians living in Japan. Several Thais, Phillipinos, Viets and Laos approached me.

2018-12-30 04:04:02 UTC  

Did they think you were someone famous?

2018-12-30 04:04:20 UTC  

@Salo Saloson No I was clearly a lost dork

2018-12-30 04:04:30 UTC

2018-12-30 04:06:33 UTC

2018-12-30 04:06:39 UTC

2018-12-30 04:07:23 UTC

2018-12-30 04:08:12 UTC

Dude jealous

2018-12-30 04:09:46 UTC  

Always wanted to go to Nepal

2018-12-30 04:09:46 UTC  

I had a Nepali co-worker in Japan (they are so desperate for English speakers they hire Nepali). She was the first person I ever heard proudly tell people she avoided dating non-Nepali because she wanted to carry on their bloodline / legacy. And no one called her racist.

2018-12-30 04:09:56 UTC  

You’ll have to post a lot of pics

2018-12-30 04:10:51 UTC  

I keep seeing adverts for English teachers in places like Japan or Korea

2018-12-30 04:10:57 UTC  

and... I would be so godamn nervous about doing that

2018-12-30 04:11:38 UTC  

I don't know exactly what I'll be doing there yet, but my buddy went last year for the same reason and they spent a week in Kathmandu, a week at the Military Academy there, and a week building mud huts in some village.

2018-12-30 04:11:58 UTC  

how much work is involved in building mud huts?

2018-12-30 04:12:13 UTC  

step 1: get mud
step 2: make it sorta brick shaped
step 3: build hut
rinse, repeat

2018-12-30 04:12:32 UTC  

It should be interesting

2018-12-30 04:13:03 UTC  

Physical labor but uh. Not mentally taxing yeah.

2018-12-30 04:13:17 UTC  

The roads over there are spooky

2018-12-30 04:13:26 UTC  

@Salo Saloson you could also do a mud hut with wattle at the structural element and mud smeared on

2018-12-30 04:13:32 UTC  

I’ve been to a part of India near there

2018-12-30 04:13:38 UTC  

Roads are 30000% yikes

2018-12-30 04:13:59 UTC  

Railroads were all built by the English

2018-12-30 04:14:15 UTC  

I was on some pretty bad roads today. Went up to some tiny town by the Canadian Border

2018-12-30 04:15:44 UTC  

I want to say some airport over there near Sikkim or Nepal is the most dangerous on earth

2018-12-30 04:16:05 UTC  

Woah some of you have white names discord is not working

2018-12-30 04:16:31 UTC  

Normal on my end

2018-12-30 04:16:57 UTC  

Also yes new rule: if you go abroad post cool pics

2018-12-30 04:17:10 UTC  

I want to see all the Buddhist temples in Kathmandu

2018-12-30 04:17:40 UTC  

Are they mostly Buddhist or Hindu?
