A 27-year-old New Zealand man, who taught English in Wonju in 2006, was murdered in Jamaica standing up for his wife after she got pistol-whipped on the couple's second honeymoon.

Who the fuck goes to Jamaica? It's one of the most violent touristplaces on earth, next to Mexico and South Africa.
He is a braver man than me. I would have let them smack my girlfriend around a few times and then apologize to her later.

Moral of the story: When an armed robber wants your cell phone, let him have it.

Human life > $200 cell phone

Woulda coulda shoudla. Hard to judge until you're seeing a loved one being pistol whipped.

As well, maybe the wife didn't see the gun. All she saw was some guy trying to grab her cell phone and run for it. If some punk Korean grabbed your iPod, you might put up a struggle. If some punk Korean pulled a weapon and demanded your iPod, you would probably rationally hand it over.

Ah, so that's what p-whipped means.

Low-Quality Teacher: Huh?
Punk: i-pod-uh, you, want-uh
Low-Quality Teacher: I already have an iPod.
Punk: no i-pod-uh you, give-uh me
Low-Quality Teacher: Oh, you want my iPod?
Punk: OK, K
Low-Quality Teacher: No.
Punk: I love you! Handsome guy!
