From Communism to Cannibalism

Wonder why North Korea is becoming more hostile? They're hungry and want to be fed. If the US draws out of South Korea, it'd be all out war for their resources. If China cuts off their ties (China = 70% of trade for North Korea, while North Korea = less than %1 for China), North Korea would starve further. Any humanitarian aid would go straight to the government and military. In short: they're screwed, and militarizing themselves is making things worse.

The chimes of communism is resorting to cannibalism after famine struck an already impoverished land.

Those who eat their families get executed by firing squad:

“In my village in May, a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad,” an unnamed citizen journalist told Asia Press, which is based in Osaka, Japan. “While his wife was away on business he killed his eldest daughter and, because his son saw what he had done, he killed his son as well. When the wife came home, he offered her food, saying: ‘We have meat.’“

“In a village in Chongdang county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was arrested,” - official from the Korean Worker’s Party told Asia Press.

New grossest article of all time

We ran out of reporting on the poo ship that got stranded in the gulf
of Mexico and was covered in sewage while people defecated in plastic
bags. That was a great media feeding frenzy. Vomitous. Now we've got a
new gross-out: young lady comes to LA from Canada, immediately dies,
and her rotting corpse ends up in the hotel's water tank while guests
drink the cadaver tea flowing through the pipes.

"The water did have a funny taste," Sabrina Baugh told CNN on
Wednesday. She and her husband used the water for eight days.

"We never thought anything of it," the British woman said. "We thought
it was just the way it was here."

What she described was not normal.

"The shower was awful," she said. "When you turned the tap on, the
water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going
back to normal."

India ravaged by commerce

"Since 1997, 182,936 Indian farmers have taken their lives and the numbers continue to rise. According to a recent study by the National Crime Records Bureau, 46 Indian farmers kill themselves every day – that is roughly one suicide every 30 minutes – an alarming statistic in a country where agriculture is the economic mainstay"

Peasant farmers are killing themselves at an alarming rate because their crops are being ruined. Everyone is to blame for this scenario. Monsanto defying nature while manufacturing manipulated seeds; Indian farmers not knowing what they're buying. It's safe to say that the creators of agent orange that are using Indian deities to sell their products aren't doing the world a favor.

Political infighting in the Vatican

There is no single person responsible for the child abuse, so my guess
is that the Pope's political adversaries won and have hung this on
him. He's a tempting target because he's far more traditional than the
"reformers" would want.

A plastic doll or simply a creature of appearance only?

When Charles married Diana, people worried about her deviation from
tradition. All the wise liberals told us no, no, she's a lady of the
people. Now we see what she wrought: royals who like commoners choose
by appearance instead of function/content. The result is that a prince
marries a bar girl and we're supposed to cheer. Remember he picked her
because she basically exposed herself to him in a sheer dress. Can't
wait for the royal divorce. She'll retire rich.

Texas is the reason

The state is growing like mad because of energy money and cheap
living. This is a disaster waiting to explode. The infrastructure
isn't geared up for this, nor is the social network ready for
California-style "everybody do it YOUR way" chaos. Watch for Texas to
implode soon, with the benefactors being smaller cities who will
harvest the cream of the crop of the exodus (brain drain).
