North Korea

An absolute wealth of goodness in the Internet today

First, check out this thread of spectacular photos from North Korea. Below are three particularly striking shots:

This last one is killer. Apparently, many of North Korea's main arteries have huge blocks of stone lining the roads, which can be toppled over in the event of an invasion to prevent enemy tanks and transports from advancing. Simply incredible.

Quick things:

  • Approximately $1 billion of the money FEMA dished out for Katrina relief was stolen.
  • Google Book Search has a nice handy Shakespeare page now.
  • This guy ran into some trouble when he tried to cancel his AOL account. It's maddening — and I only listened to it.
  • President Bush knows the words to "Sunday Bloody Sunday." Nice mashup.
  • Some (purely evil) scholars are attempting to found a college based on the teachings of Ayn Rand. Not difficult to imagine what the core curriculum will look like.
  • This World Development Movement helps you decide which World Cup team to root for, based on the first of the criterion I outlined earlier: poor countries over rich ones.

Finally, more cool graffiti:

It must be either a Jawa or Orko from Masters of the Universe. Probably the former.
