This comic is about uncertainty, not suicide.

After my trip to Hong Kong for Lunar New Year's invalidated my work visa, I had to go to Japan to get a new one.

I was so mad at my employer that I quit, so all month I've been trying to get a new job and apartment.

These are the kinds of things that I hate to do, but have to do.

A belated Gung Hei Fat Choi to all of you. :)

The Japanese and Chinese are very tough people to read if you're not one of them :) I found out the tough way!

Hope you found a place to work and live.

I have.

Last night, I saw ';Planet of the Apes' and Cornelius and Zira struck me as very liberal Koreans and a wicked idea for a satire was born.

Good things worked out.

Tell me, do they make "Google Translator" English signages in Korea like in China?

They just Chinese -> English google up the characters and write in the English translation.

It leads to the most weirdest Shop/Location names which sound "Weird".

One example was... "The Champ Elysees Hectometre Plaza World"...

It was a dirty little run down pool/snooker centre. rofl.

I don't think Korea uses google to be honest. They use homegrown Daum.com and Naver.com .

Everyday, I see some inexplicable English phrase.

Some of my favorites include a mother and her 10-year-old son walking down the sidewalk. The mother's shirt says, "This is my girlfriend" with an arrow towards the boy. Or two fifty year old women walking and one's shirt says "She loves the cock" and an arrow pointing at the other woman. (The arrow thing is reminiscent of the "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt. I saw a 5-year-old boy at a natural history museum who's shirt said "Cannibal Cannibal" and recently I had a student with an "I (heart) heroin" sweatshirt.

This phenomenon is not restricted to shirts. Just Saturday, an ATM asked if I wanted more INFOMATION.

My advice.... do not get a tattoo in any foreign language.

hang in there...it'll come good...the old saying...a picture says a 1000 words holds true for this one...

though its not a sad feeling i get from it...its more an acceptance, an at ease feeling...like the ending of vanilla sky...

all the best :)

In my opinion, the comic strip is only about uncertainty up until the last panel. Then it seems pretty straight forward and certain what he's doing.

Maybe he'll live.

I guess that's possible, but I think he'd be pretty disappointed if he did.
