Tell me about it. American roads are terrible. I know from experience that this level of neglect will not be tolerated in other developed nations.
 
Road hazard: Poor condition of American highways is costing drivers

WASHINGTON — The shoddy state of the nation's roads cost average drivers $515 in extra operation and maintenance costs on their cars, according to the latest analysis from TRIP, a national transportation research group. Meanwhile, the Highway Trust Fund is about to become insolvent, and congressional lawmakers can't agree on a temporary fix that experts say is nothing more than a band-aid, and an inadequate one at that.

I guess if they can expand their bigoted behavior to everyone, nobody is being singled out so it's okay. Or so goes their logic.

Yeah... I'm not convinced. I prefer the simple, minimalistic designs rather than the clutter of Korean apps.
South Korean companies are building software for smartphones that’s chaotic, multifunctional and exciting — everything that American apps aren’t.

I like the minimalist design ethos, but feel that it has been taken too far and become an end in itself rather than a way to make better user interfaces. The current, loathsome, borderline unusable incarnation of Google Maps is a perfect example.

I shuddered when I saw "Boingo" on the sign in the picture, but fortunately it doesn't seem like they have anything to do with this.

My grandparents lived nearby, so as a kid I snuck on to the grounds during a summer visit. Couldn't go inside but the gardens were nice.

Oh boy here we go.
Welcome to the exciting new world of the slippery slope. With the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling this Friday legalizing same sex marriage in all 50 states, social liberalism has achieved one of its central goals. A right seemingly unthinkable two decades ago has now been broadly applied to a whole new class of citizens. Following on the rejection...

I think it’s time to turn the question back on them: given what you know about the advancement of human rights, are you sure your opposition to group marriage won’t sound as anachronistic as opposition to gay marriage sounds to you now? [...] I suspect that many progressives would recognize, when pushed in this way, that the case against polygamy is incredibly flimsy, almost entirely lacking in rational basis and animated by purely irrational fears and prejudice.

I must admit that I clicked on the link fearing the idea of polygamous marriages, but reflecting upon it, the said fear was irrational.

In fact, I'm kind of digging the idea now.

Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

Before I start, I must state that I know nothing about cats, but I love them nonetheless. The Cat Cafe is a cafe that has adoptable cats. It's the "adoptable cats" part that I have a problem with. I do believe the intention is good, but for me, I was expecting to enjoy a relaxing time with playful cats. However, I felt that most cats were on edge because the cafe wasn't their home. Many of them didn't want to be bothered, and a few even seemed nervous/hostile. I stress again that I know nothing about cats, but I would think that cats would be a little more friendly if this place was their permanent home. As a customer, I expected the experience to be similar to that of visiting a house with friendly cats, not that of visiting an animal shelter with coffee. Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I do support animal adoption; I just didn't think that's what the Cafe was about.

The signature Apple Pancake is huge! I went alone for a brunch, and the puffy pancake really is for two people. The apple & cinnamon combination is fairly standard, but the pancake is so smooth that it melts in your mouth. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and delicious. I wanted to try their egg dishes too, but it was simply impossible after the giant pancake. The coffee is forgettable, but still goes well with the pancake.

Historically significant, forgettable experience. General admission is $3.50, but despite the relatively low price, I don't think it's worth it. There are a few furnitures inside used by Paul Revere himself, but not a single memorable artifact can be found. The tour is self-guided, and you'll see a few rooms, each with stationed guides.

I've read some negative reviews about the Warren Tavern concerning food quality and service, but my experience was very pleasant. I went for dinner and had the special sirloin with a pint of Guinness, finished with bread pudding. I can't say the food was unforgettable, but it was better than the average pub food, and the unique atmosphere and the kind waitress made up for the experience. I recommend the Warren Tavern.

Went to Puesto for a business lunch and had tacos. Puesto has delicious guacamole and chips for appetizer, and had a variety of fun, tasty tacos. I had the tuna taco, lobster taco, and cactus taco. All three were very good. The atmosphere is also very nice. Puesto fully utilizes the fantastic San Diego weather and provide a semi-indoor environment that is just perfect. I would recommend Puesto.

Union Oyster House is worth a visit for its historical significance, but not for quality. I had the Union special lobster with a cup of clam chowder to start, but both were mediocre. The lobster was no better than a typical chain restaurant's, and that's disappointing for a reputable place like the UOH. As a bonus, I would've been charged for two lobsters when I only had one, had I not caught the incorrect charge on my bill. I'd like to think it was an honest mistake, but I thought it's a story worth sharing. Other than that, the service was in fact satisfactory, but the wait for seating was long. Be sure to make a reservation.

Live jazz and tasty brunch, The Court of Two Sisters gives you exactly what they promise. Be sure to make a reservation early since they fill up very quickly. Walk-ins are possible, but you won't get the nice courtyard seat. The live band will come inside to play occasionally as well, but you won't get the full experience unless you're outside.
