I still don't get why the North Koreans thought it was a good idea to get a Youtube channel; if they wanted to convey that their country was strange and poor they couldn't have done a better job.
Just look inside those "factories" and forget about the fact that everyone's hands are clean; look at the ambient lighting, or lack thereof. This is a poor country.
Considering this post's juxtaposition with the post below, it is very difficult not to feel like an outsider to all of this, and an outsider who's damned grateful he doesn't have to endure this type of media (though George Will's no picnic, either).
What could they have been thinking?
