fusillade762: Will it be able to defeat Godzilla?


Wrong country. Godzilla was in Korea.

You're thinking of King Kong.


I know you guys are being tongue-in-cheek.  But, in fact - when it comes to Best Korea, it's this guy:

And yes, I am being obscure。


Pulgasari's not that obscure.

What's really obscure is that there's a second Pulgasari movie out there.

Would have to spray WAY further to reach Japan!

Will they build a giant robot maid to carry it?

Wrong monster.  They're preparing to fight Hedorah ('Godzilla versus the Smog Monster') when Japan sends it against them.

some_beer_drinker: BumpInTheNight: China is a wonderful example of what would happen if capitalism ruled the day, ironically enough.

i live in china, and i think this is quite true.


You don't perceive a connection between business and government? All the Chinese people I've talked to before do. Capitalism is different from cronyism. It means that private individuals own and control the means of production. Cronyism (or corny capitalism) means private parties own the means of production, but it's controlled by the government who get kickbacks for playing favorites. That's the similarity between American and Chinese economics in my opinion.

There's a second movie out there?!!

I have to admit I actually liked Pulgasari (may still be on youtube).  The idea that any movie produced by the DPRK, much less a sort of Godzilla rip off, would be entertaining, but actually it wasn't bad at all IMHO.

China is very laissez faire for small fish.  Lots of mom and pops.  Not necessarily legal.   Local police thugs might try to beat on unlicensed street food vendors.  The local police thugs might, in turn, be beaten by the locals.

But, yeah, at the higher levels? In our system, the rich and powerful make all the rules and run everything.  In theirs, it's the opposite.

fredklein: Um, I guess no one RTFA. This is just being used to keep the construction dust down:

to reduce air pollution caused by the metro construction
...
This is a small-scale effort to damp down the dust. The water will go up as a fine mist, and stick to the dust and form larger particles - and fall back down to the surface under gravity. ... 'it will stop dust spreading over a wider area'. It won't stop pollution elsewhere, though, he added.


1. Use this to damp down the dust while building a 1000-foot-tall tower.
2. Install misters at top of 1000-foot tower.
3. ?
4. Profit!

So there going from world record air pollution to world record acid rain.
 
2014-05-09 08:36:13 PM  
So let's see...

1. Solve smog problem with ungodly amounts of tap water
2. ?
3. Water shortage + smog still hanging around?

Don't those idiots know that all you have to do is spray vinegar into the air?
