    Default It's raining society destroying 'better when you're drunk' activities...

    Nation bans karaoke bars, Internet cafes?
    Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:48AM EDT
    SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea's security agency has ordered the shutdown of karaoke bars and Internet cafes, saying they are a threat to society, a South Korean newspaper reported Wednesday.

    Refugees from the reclusive state say such outlets are largely located in the northern region that borders China and are frequented by merchants involved in cross-border business rather than ordinary citizens.

    The North's Ministry of People's Security said in a directive that all karaoke bars, video-screening rooms and Internet cafes operating without state authorization must shut immediately, the Dong-A Ilbo newspaper said.

    The paper did not say how it obtained a copy of the directive.

    "It is so promulgated under the mandate of the Republic in order to crush enemy scheming and to squarely confront those who threaten the maintenance of the socialist system," the daily quoted the ministry directive as saying.

    "Most of the people who would go to these places are people who made quite a bit of money, normally not officials or the average person," said Park Sang-hak, an activist for human rights in the North based in South Korea.

    My best friend lives in South korea (seoul) and say's that the karaoke bars are the highlight of the weekend for him and his wife. I guess he has to find some other type of annoying pastime.

    That's one of the most confusing things I've ever seen. I sincerely don't get it.

    A Phallus Garden in "Love Land"
    By Matthias Streitz

    There's a persistent prejudice against the Japanese, the Koreans and other Asians -- that they're prudish and repressed. But go to "Love Land" on Cheju Island in South Korea and you'll start to question that cliché.
    I can still remember the feeling of disbelief when I turned the corner in a well-heeled, respectable Tokyo neighborhood to find myself face-to-face with a porn cinema. Not only that, but on the shopping street nearby, a poster display advertised the cinema's selection of lewd flicks with maximum explicitness. A respectable-looking man in a suit stood in front of the display in broad daylight, inspecting the images like a true connoisseur.

    In North Korea......

    1. Worshiping the almighty, emperor KimJong-il.
    2. Karaoke and the limited internet.
    3 Remembering rule Number #1 is the most important thing you will ever know.

    The paper also reported that American TomAz is considering the name change of Tomgayz.
