Damage Compensation

It is but natural that under the system of private ownership, possessions and valuable belongings be protected from ill circumstances. It is, however, impossible that damage be kept at bay all the time. What will you do if, say, your nose got a little bit weird-looking after a rhinoplasty? Or what if your job has been jeopardized by someone? These are your possessions and you need to act in order to claim the just amount of compensation from the person who did the damage, wittingly or unwittingly.
Just today I received an SMS from my mom informing me that her car was unintentionally hit at the rear by a woman driver. Both were cooperative and civil enough to just settle the matter amicably. The same situation doesn’t happen to anyone, though, especially if a greater degree of loss has been inflicted to the offended party. And sometimes, the offended doesn’t have the money to fend himself or herself and get his or her rights backed up by law. Herein comes First Personal Injury. It is a service that help the offended their rights to personal injury claims. In our country, where riding the bicycle as a means of transpiration is common, bicycle accident claims are commonplace. And to some universal degree, traffic accidents, which kills more often that heart attack, can entitle one to whiplash injury claims. The latter could be seen in a trivial light, but whiplash injuries could be very distressing and could limit the normal physiological activity of the person damaged. First Personal Injury boasts of its no-win-no-fee legal services to people who are not be able to afford to pay for these services. FPI is also a bastion of compensation experts and lawyers who already have garnered enough experience to flaunt a no-win-no-fee deal. Drop First Personal Injury a line should you need an expert guidance for accidents involving children, including birth accidents and other medical malpractice issues. Rest assured that your valuables would get compensated in the fairest amount possible.

Lunar New Year 2009

This week reminds me of one the most palpably exciting days I had in Korea. Two days from today and it’s Lunar New Year. Being one of the biggest occasions in Korea, and on where most establishments fold up for three days, I know I had to rush to the deparment store to buy presents for friends and to stuff up my fridge. Shopping didn’t take long. I’m not fussy when it comes to food; I’ve gotten over the aversion towards kimchi and I’ve learned to love Korean foods. It was buying gifts for my bosses that rubbed the best off of my Sketchers. Why not cigars, I thought to myself? I just need to look around to get a clue what middle-aged Korean men could want. Out of 10 Korean men I’ve met, only one has sputum-free lungs. Or probably not so because of the sidestream somke he’s already inhaled. Yeah, I thought I’d just get them a box or a special bundle of cigar and that would make them puffing happily this season. As for my Korean girl friends, I just bought for them fashion accessories from underground kiosks. It was dismally more difficult to find items for men in Korea. In one department store I went to, there were like 8 floors dedicated to women’s fashion while only 2 for men AND children. There is less variety of clothes to choose from, less accessories than what you can find for women. I just decided to grab cutely patterned neck ties and thin fashion scarves for my male friends. As for my seniors (“sonbe”, as younger people address older acquaintances in Korea), I just have to settle for bottles of Korean traditional wine and cigars. My erstwhile plump wallet has just gotten...well, gaunt. If only dieting is just as fast. Anyway, I enjoyed buying all these stuff for everyone. Giving indeed feels better than receiving.

새해 복 많이 많이 받으세요! Happy New Year!

Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews & observances of their holy days. The argument was it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day. The case was brought before a judge.

After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed."

The lawyer immediately stood, objecting to the ruling, saying, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter & others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur & Hanukkah. Yet my client & all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Counsel, your client is woefully ignorant."
The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."

The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is 'April Fools’ Day.' Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."
