Is it just me, or is the general chat in need of a North Korea topic?

Only every once in a while. They pass in and out of the news about once every few months.

Probably a good choice.

EU agrees to cap bankers' bonuses

Quote:
uropean Union officials have struck a provisional deal on new financial rules, including capping bank bonuses.

Under the agreement, bonuses will be capped at a year's salary, but can rise to two year's pay if there is explicit approval from shareholders.

The UK, which hosts Europe's biggest financial services centre, was opposed to any caps on bank bonuses.

Is it surprising that the two remaining members of the "Axis", after the invasion of Iraq, have set about securing themselves by developing the ultimate weapon?
The North Korean nuclear program dates back to the 1950's; the first research reactor went into operation in 1967.

Quote:
In the early 1980s, U.S. satellites tracked a growing indigenous nuclear program in North Korea. The North Korean nuclear program began in the late 1950s with cooperation agreements with the Soviet Union on a nuclear research program near Yongbyon. Its first research reactor began operation in 1967.

Give them amps and loudhailers and a CD full of Jimi Hendrix's best hits.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

It goes back even further: Northern Korea was the sole uranium mining location of Japan during WW2.

and it is usually all the same argument.

KiraY would argue NK needs a good invasion and everyone would try explain to him why the US/China/SouthKorea would not do it.

More like they stop giving "help" to NK, is like giving a bully lunch money:

It's not like they won't be able to make money anymore. They just can't make as much. If they go away, someone else will gladly take advantage of the business themselves...

Though I'm not sure of the efficacy of it. It's exactly solving the root of the problem.

More like a Yorkshire terrier than a crocodile. Sure, giving it treats to get it to shut up is a bad idea, but so is stepping on them.

Indeed. To take a page from their own book, if they won't work for less than a million, we'll find someone to do it for five hundred thousand. For that much money, we won't even need to outsource to some third world country.

I never said or implied they should be squashed, just not feed them anything at all, remember “The Dog that Barks, does not bite!” and they have been barking quite loud quite often. In simple terms, they are prepared to be invaded, but they do not have a chance of invading successfully South Korea, if they had they would have already done it decades ago.

So far, plenty of white elephants.

We have all those ghost cities being built, but with no one in those. It will take more than that to make something useful out of this new project.

Human sexuality is naturally promiscuous, primarily amorous

Quote:
Thursday afternoon at the TED2013 conference got a little steamy. Christopher Ryan, a PhD of Psychology and co-author of the book Sex at Dawn, sexed up the stage by talking about what he believes is the evolutionary nature of human sexuality. “Human beings are not descended from apes," he told the crowd. "We are apes. We’re [genetically] more closely related to chimps and bonobos than they are to any other primate.” As Ryan puts it, the question is “what kind of ape are we” in terms of our sexual natures? It turns out, we’re also closely related to chimps and bonobos in sexual practices—and the latter are famous for their sexual promiscuity and even “homosexuality.”
Spoiler for Shinsekai Yori:
