Pointless things

               Now, I don’t know what to say – should I laugh? Should I cry? Wired reported (a month ago, but it’s new to me) that two non-profit organizations apparently put together a scheme to combat North Korea’s dictatorship by sending them usb sticks with western movies and TV shows. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, do these people have any functioning neurons left? No, not the Koreans, but them god fearing Americans who came up with this crap… First of all, 99% of those currently residing inside North Korea have no computers. Like, at all. And the computers they do have, run a specialized, custom-made operating system that possibly lacks most codecs needed for such an operation. So those donated USB sticks with movies and stuff would only benefit his shortness and maybe a few of the elite, not to mention the fact that if wiped, they could be easily resold on the black markets of Asia. Now, think about it, did Kim Jong-un plant a few of his spies in those organizations and issued them orders to make him more money? Because that’s the only explanation I get for using good hardware they could sell again, untraceable to them, hardware that is or maybe isn’t securely erased (in which case hello espionage my good friend) filled with movies the average citizens pays money to buy, loading those up on carrier pigeons or something similar and sending them into a country without computers, internet access or up to date video/audio codecs. Hell, it’s easier to plant them a virus this way than to overthrow their dictatorship, since you know the PC users are most likely the elite rulers.. Holy shit, people, get a grip on reality, why don’t you..
