Samsung, corruption, and you - The Verge
"Chaebol is the Korean term for conglomerate. The word comes from the same Chinese characters that form the Japanese term zaibatsu; that those characters roughly translate to “wealth” and “clan” should give you some idea as to how the concept came to be. Many of South Korea’s top conglomerates, like LG, Hyundai, SK, Lotte, and Hanwha, are family-run chaebol where power is traditionally passed down through generations."

Ask a Korean!: The Irrational Downfall of Park Geun-hye
This shi' crazy. Taken down by a Samsung Galaxy Tab...!

"There is a video of Choi's staff smoking and drinking while eating fried chicken, right next to the suit meant for Park Geun-hye. At one point, one of the staff members handled the suit without even wiping chicken grease from his hands, while breathing smoke onto the clothes. Park Geun-hye would wear this suit on her presidential visit with Xi Jinping."

The Road to Tama-Re
"Every idea shifts according to convenience. No rule of law or language or thought applies to them save their own, and under York, their own rules never stopped changing. This is the gnawing emptiness at the heart of Right Knowledge—a cognitive dissonance that reconciles nothing and consumes everything. The result is a fog that can justify or hide a range of violations, from a speeding ticket to the rape of children."

Conversion via Twitter - The New Yorker
"When Brittany Murphy died, Phelps-Roper had seen the disparity between her reaction and that of the rest of the church as a sign that something was wrong with her. Now the contradiction of her mother’s glee and her own sadness made her wonder if something was wrong with the church."
