Kim Jong Un called Seth Rogan’s upcoming movie ‘The Interview’, “an act of war”. Everybody’s a critic.
In the movie, Rogen and James Franco star as two journalists who, after scoring an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, are ordered by the CIA to assassinate him. In a statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman characterized Rogen as a “gangster filmmaker” and called upon the US to block the film, according to a report from the AFP. “The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable,” the spokesman said, adding that the US would face a “resolute and merciless response” if it fails to ban the film, which is slated for release later this year.

First pictures of North Korea as seen through Google Glass
Google Glass user Kenny Zhu went to North Korea in April, and took his Google Glass with him. NK officials let him go ahead, as long as he took only happy pictures of the capital.
At the first sight they were able to tell it is a photography device. But without Internet — no Internet service available for temporary foreign visitors in North Korea — the glasses are just a wearable video camera. They were suspicious of the Google Glass at first though, asking me some questions about it — how does it work, what does it do, etc. I let them played around with it and they seemed flattered and inquired no more.

NASA spots huge plumes of smoke in North Korea, probably all the meth labs

The above image was one recently captured by NASA satellites, showing huge fires and plumes of smoke running straight down one whole half of the country. NASA says it’s mostly likely famers clearing debris from farmland to help fertilize the soil, but personally, I think it’s all those damn North Korean meth labs that are putting Gus Fring’s operation to shame.

North Korea makes so much incredibly pure meth, it would make Walter White giggle with joy

When you’re one of the poorest nations on Earth, but you need lots of money to spend on all military brass and polish, but you have nothing of real value, what do you do? Make meth. 98% pure crystal meth, and lots of it. So much of it, that the government encourages people to smoke it every day because they’ve got so much of it, and it’s pretty much the only thing that’s keeping the nation afloat at all. Had Breaking Bad not ended like it had, and Walter White wanted more than just the North American meth market, one more season and he could have been going toe-to-toe with the North Korean government. That would have been fun.

The problem with cannibalism in North Korea

Ever since the 1990s, there’s been a bit of a problem with starvation in North Korea. Okay, more like a really big problem with malnutrition and starvation. And in the name of survival, there’s also been a problem with child abduction, because who’s gonna miss one kid when people are dying all over the place every day? So there’s become a rule of thumb in North Korea that you shouldn’t buy meat of unknown origin, because it may be the kid down the street.

Things you don’t read in travel guides: Smoking and growing as much weed as you want is completely legal in North Korea

A couple years ago, it was suspected that Kim Jong Il had been dating North Korean singer Hyon Song-wol, who was famous in the country for her hit “Excellent Horse Like Lady”, which is a song title that would only win the hearts of North Koreans. This past week, Hyon was reportedly executed by firing squad after it was discovered she had been in a pornographic movie, which I guess is punishable by death in North Korea.
