Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

What the fuck North Korea?

    SOHCAHTOA

    E: Factoring hectopascals!

    I learned SOHCAHTOA as the great Indian chief, but everyone learned it differently

    Junior year we had a student teacher who goes "You guys know SOHCAHTOA right? Some Old Hippie Caught Another Hippie Tripping On Acid"

    Whole class is just like what the fuck dude we didn't learn it as a drug joke

    Some Old Horse Caught Another Horse Taking Other's Oats was the one most people in my school knew

    And then a few of us that had the same math teacher in middle school knew the great Indian chief

    And then everyone in my precalc class remembered it as Some Old Hippie after that

    I make one tiny joke about nuking Africa and suddenly everyone's all about cutting off all emergency aid

    yeah, emergency food aid will not solve the continent's problems

    but if they don't get it millions die

    it's just really depressing

    best way to describe the country is grim

    the guides say what they say, and they show you what they want you to see, but it's not so hard to draw your own conclusions when you tour

    I mean, it's not like South Korea is the best country in the world

    but you just come back from the oppressive grayness of NK and all of the sudden all the glitzy in-your-face commercialism feels like a breath of fresh air

    It's legal, but you should be prepared to give "gifts" or pay an "extra fee" if you want it to actually happen. I don't know if they do it to everyone, but whenever you read about Americans getting in, some official or other will ask for a bribe in order to push it through and threaten to either not file the paperwork or let it take months to happen.

    Who has the link to that Vice video?

    They took us to some major monuments, gave us a few propaganda speeches on the go, nothing I didn't expect. We didn't go to see Il Sung's body, line was way too long and the weather was crappy. But what I remember most of all was the greyness. It could've just been the weather, but it was also the buildings, people's clothes and faces, the fog over the fields. It really did seem like an extremely joyless place.
