Intresting thread with pictures of life in North Korea. Don't think I've seen any other picture besides KIM Jong Il or of starving children. Lot of pics, more on the second page.*
yet some people believe that country is a threat when it cant even feed its own people LOL, its been in population decline for quite some time
I think the leaders are quite well fed, and they're the ones pushing the big red buttons. But I had to laugh today when they launched six missiles, then waited a while before launching a seventh.Originally Posted by pedex
For those interested in North Korea, I'd recommend reading an online book entitled "A Year in Pyongyang". I've been making my way through it over the past few days.
I had two 40 year-old North Korean classmates last year who were a lot of fun. I mentioned that I'd like to visit North Korea some day, and they were very excited. I said the same thing to a 20-year old North Korean classmate this year, and he just looked at me and asked, "why would you want to do that?".
Edit: Thanks for the link, Jerseysbest.
those missiles broke up in flight too
some things most totalitarian and malevolent regimes share in common:
brain drain, the smart people leave
food is often scarce so people leave or quit having so many kids resulting in population decline
the economy cant support long term protracted wars
per capita income and lifestyle is usually fairly low
just a few things a place like N. Korea have to deal with, only threat they are is to themselves
Listen, if you guys keep criticising Kansas I'll move this to P&R.

I thought it was quite humorous that they chose that time to "test"
Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
"Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
So many sayings, so little sig space.
I kind of liked Kansas for the three years I was there. Horrible wind though!
Ironically, before Kansas I was in South Korea. I did go about 15 feet inside North Korea in the building where the armistice was signed. That was a very odd place!
