JosephFinn: Look, sue me, but the Bille Dee Williams line was funny.
Fista-Phobia: The Bestest: Maximum range does not also imply accuracyAgreed.I call it... semi-ballistic!
bluorangefyre: Did I actually get the Ja Rule/50 Cent bit of comedy?
buravirgil: Infernalist: I was merely remarking in my Boobies that 'oil' isn't the only treasure in the world that a nation would necessarily go to war over.I agree with that. Developed nations make no bones about "protecting their interests", but that patent explanation is interpreted in all sorts of ways.And considering China's efforts in the RRE market, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't eventually see a slow-motion occupation of NK by the Chinese military, to be slowly absorbed into Greater China.Yeah, but would it be along the lines of Honk Kong?

Lee Jackson Beauregard: Cagey B: JonZoidberg: How many times does N Korea get to make threats before we pre-emptively carpet bomb Pyongyang? If a real country made those kinds of gestures, wouldn't we respond?1. Everyone knows North Korea isn't actually going to nuke the US. For many, already discussed reasons.2. We don't generally go to war because someone "made some threats".3. We're not going to go to war with North Korea for a host of tactical and strategic reasons, which have been discussed at length.4. While we have kind of a history of being dicks to the world, I don't think even the US would initiate an armed conflict because a guy hurt our collective feelings in a press release.5. "Pre-emptive" wars haven't worked out too well for us in the recent past.6. Indiscriminately bombing Pyongyang would not do anything to harm North Korea's nuclear capacity (in this case, the fictional launch capability they have to supposedly nuke us). It would, however, be certain to ensure the enmity of every regional power (including South Korea), except maybe Japan.7. North Korea does not have oil.
iron de havilland: sand_in_my_vagoo: Number 15 (Sallie Mae forgiving student loan debt) just needs happen regardless of whether or not North Korea has nukes. Imagine what it would do for the economy...But that would
Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: JosephFinn: Look, sue me, but the Bille Dee Williams line was funny.I'm going to need some contact information for your lawyer.
TV's Vinnie: It's hard to take Best Korea seriously when you've seen those "Squirrel and Hedgehog" propaganda cartoons they've been putting out. The fine upstanding citizens have been having a field day drawing fan art of "WOLFMURRICA!" (the American bad guys in the cartoon are portrayed as wolves) and have latched onto "Lt. Fox Vixen" as if she were the new Derpy.[rule34-data-002.paheal.net image 588x729]
neongoats: You know, its rare that I read something from fark so unfunny as to actually make me angry to have wasted 3 minutes. But there you have it, my easter gift from fark.
ArcadianRefugee: How about things less likely?* Cracked.com publishing an article on a single page* Gizmodo.com publishing 100% original material* FarkTV making a comeback...
oukewldave: Sure this isn't just a list of random rappers?
3rdtimearound: That was so insightful and witty - great list. Found myself nodding my head in agreement at every slide. Oh wait. That's not true. It was terrible and dull. The person who wrote it should read this post, and feel horrible. First they will think I liked it, and then their hopes are crushed by my bitter disapproval! Then, if my plans work out right, they will live out the rest of their existence on a daily balance of antidepressants, anxiolytics and lithium, until one day it all becomes just too much and they have to beg an understanding relative for airfare so they can make their way to Switzerland where Dignitas can put them out of my misery.
