    As you know from MASH, the 38th parallel divides North and South Korea. Is where you live North of this, South of this, or right on this?

    Personally I'm at the 38th Parallel. Come to my house for terse diplomatic meetings.

    Well below. During the war I would be fighting for Freedom and Democracy under dictator Syngman Rhee. [face_ROK_flag]

    At my house in the DMZ, BTS attempts to bring both Koreas together, but fails miserably as Kim Jung Un thinks the little heart finger gesture is an insult.

    You're so close to being able to just get in a car and drive along one parallel from your house to my house then Jay's house.

    Sounds like a fun road trip. Maybe I’ll do it sometime after this Covid business goes away

    I’m somewhere just north of Fushun, China. I'm pretty sure nothing of any significance has ever happened here.

    There was that one time Red Velvet performed in NK and everyone just sat there like mannequins afraid of being shot.

    Wait are we dragging other countries into this if we're up too high? Because then I'm in scenic Heilongjiang province. Yes, whether it's our freezing cold winters or our eclectic mixture of Eastern Orthodox and traditional Chinese architectural styles, there's something for everyone who likes Russia but is stuck in China in Heilongjiang. Heilongjiang: We're Not Just a Province, We're a Province Near the Jewish Autonomous Oblast.™

    Gotta go with SK. As embarrassing as this is to admit, if I’m being honest with myself I’m probably sitting in the GSL studio watching a live Starcraft tournament.

    If you're actually in MN you are in North Korea.

    Oh, I get it. Oops.

    The 38th parallel is just a capitalist construct anyways.

    As a student, in the days before youtube, a friend used to play North Korean propaganda videos at the end of parties.

    Anyway I'm past both Koreas and China, but feel welcome to visit Kamchatka, Russia, it's lovely this time of the year. Probably warmer than Texas.

    Amazingly, the 38th parallel puts me on par with San Francisco, DC, and Spain. These places have wildly different weather and climates in spite of this.

    Anyway, climate change is a hoax or something.
