Restaurants in Korea

With the short time I spent in S. Korea a few weeks back, I got to relive the delicious food I had missed for so long. What I had evidently failed to notice years ago was how disturbing some of the restaurant signs were. I admit it. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is contagiously amicable, but those lit up signs in front of these places disturb me at times. For example, a place that specializes in duck meat would put up a sign with a duck eating roasted duck. Does that not traumatize anyone else in the least? The signs clearly depict an act of cannibalism taking place, yet people find it as more incentive to eagerly rush in and eat. In fact, I can bet that the frozen smile of said duck-mascot on the welcome signs is onto a slow and gradual mental deterioration as it is forced to watch hundreds of people stream in and eat its brethren. I'm no vegetarian, but just considering the psychological aspects of putting up a sign like that. *shivers*

Is this ethically correct? 
Haha welcome! I fixedly watch my kind getting butchered and consumed on a massive level for an indefinite amount of time! :) 

I'm so random!!!!! XD

Why do people find the need to describe themselves as random? That often seems like the best word to define a person when that individual, in reality, has no clue about where to classify themselves. Not that there's a huge problem with that. But it gives the asker no idea of what sort of "random" you are. Unpredictable? Impulsive? Or do we take that term literally and perceive the person to change personality and appearance on an hourly basis (which I would loosely diagnose as Multiple Personality Disorder, but I'm no doctor). Most of the time, it's used as an excuse to act flippant, uncaring of consequences and rude and just grouping that to a single, neutral word. Word of advice... when you're at an interview (for a job, school, whatever), when asked what sort of traits define you, don't pluck up and say you're "random". Please. It really irks me, and leaves most of us clueless.

The perfect example of how a simple word like "random" can be ruined due to overuse by a group of like minded teens.

Thank you for your time. I'm going to take a  little break from writing "random' so many times because it's beginning to lose meaning.
