comment What is a good place in Las Vegas for a scotch and cigar?
Actually we try to avoid tags in the singular and unless we expect many questions on a topic and that topic is sufficiently differentiated from other topics, we don't usually give it its own tag. We thought about this in meta and decided nightlife was the closest we had for cigar bars.

comment Where to buy a second-hand smartphone in Seoul?
Sounds like a business opportunity for an entrepreneurial weegook (-; Thanks for you excellent information. Some friends in Korea did tell me that you usually hand over your old phone when upgrading to a new phone. The fact that these old phones don't show up visibly on the market made me think there's probably a hidden side of the business that ships bulk trade-in phones to poorer countries like India perhaps, where I saw tons and tons of used phones. I guess a quantity are recycled too.

I've added the terminology tag since many feel this question is about the definition of country.

The couple I knew were Norwegians. He had quite a few quite big tattoos, but of course not in the style of East Asian gangs. I think she also had several, but smaller.

@AndrewGrimm: Oh sorry, people from many if not all of the Caucasian republics and former republics such as Chechnya, Dagestan, Georgia, Ingushetia. I don't know many specifics, just some horror stories I heard from Dagestanis and Ingushetians I met in Georgia backed up by a Ukrainian friend who said the same (about Caucasians, not about Ukrainians.) Wikipedia has some information.
