OK, it’s time for a nice relaxing day on the ski slopes. I’ve got my lift ticket and … OH MY GOD.

It happened at Pyeongchang, east of Seoul, South Korea today, as more than 400 U.S. and South Korean Marines participated in a joint military training exercise. It’s the forst time the two countries have done this in South Korea.
