  1. It's a shame that the "consumers" of NK won't be able to do much with them. I'm sure that everything they do on them will be monitored by the government...
  2. Certain words in the spell checker are linked to a small PETN charge under the keyboard which blows the user's hands off ...

    Please assist me with making up the blacklist ...
  3. I think this satellite photo best sums up how much electricity is flowing in North Korea:

    Turn out North Korea has been essentially manufacturing these.....Its essentially a re-branded educational laptop made in China by American and German companies. Not an exact remake but close enough to piss a lot of people off.

    For some reason my work computer is blocking the image. Is that one that shows a virtual blackout of th NK vs. SK?


    Yes, it's the same photo.

    Interesting to see the components of these so called "PC's." Essentially, they are large cell phones without the ability to make calls. Most smartphones these days have just as much, if not more "guts" than the cheap "PC's."
  6. Funny how NK has no lights but SK has them..except during raid drills. The you can't see jack shyte.

    just like North American and Europe then , where all email is monitored and scanned
  8. To a degree, but for the most part we can say whatever we want. The only exceptions I believe would have to do with terrorism. In NK though, if they say just about anything that doesn't have to do with their "dear leader," they're thrown in prison or executed.
  9. What's North Korea's IP band ??
  10. I mean ... what's the IP they gave North Korea ...

    heh heh ...
  11. ^ Here it is:

    1.666.66.6666.66

    Seemed pretty exciting ... I do hope they eventually join the rest of the human race.

    I hope they fare better than the these isolationists did did in the new Anime movie called Vexille.

  13. Indeed. You cannot help but feel sorry for the vast majority of the people there. I'd bet that most North Koreans do not buy the crap that the "government" spews out daily, much less the fact that the "government" claim the first "dear leader" and founder of NK, Kin Il-sung is a "god." Yet, they have to act like they are buying it to stay alive. Sad situation.
  14. ^wait, you mean I won't be able to give Fido away because his meat may be contaminated with Escherichia coli?
  15. Outdated and just plain stupid laws like that need to be taken off the books.
