Not sure why I was so down-voted for the Trinity movie. It is an award winning and truly mind-boggling film about perhaps the most important issue currently facing our species. Have my nay sayers even seen it?
So I will try again on a different note (literally) - Woodstock (1970) / Let It Be (1970) / Gimme Shelter (1970)

Big G does look a little lonely. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the debut of King Ghidorah and the 40th for MechaGodzilla. Why didn't they give him some other famous companions to play with?

Why not simply round them up and send them home?
Why not simply round them up and send them home?
This is much more difficult than most can imagine. The abductees have had intimate access to some of the DPRK's top spies and their training programs. The DPRK's spy agency is not likely to just 'send them home'. And abductees also have been subjected to prolonged brainwashing and indoctrination by the DPRK's secret police. They most likely suffer from abject Stockholm Syndrome and are probably unwilling to return.

The DPRK is not a 'rogue state'. It is the world's largest criminal junta and organized mafia syndicate. The DPRK is the world's largest producer of illegal synthetic drugs, counterfeit currency, and banned weapons of mass destruction. Such actions negate any reference to a 'country' or 'nation'. Kidnapping and extortion are indelible tactics of the DPRK agenda. Such methodology is not 'bizarre' but typical and expected of organized criminal cliques - although the scale at which the DPRK operates its misanthropic campaigns of terror and oppression are historic enough to be deemed 'bizarre' in a sense that the rest of the planet has allowed this paranoid genocidal travesty to continue as long as it has.

Bergbilder - the US - and nearly all other nations are signatories to the Geneva protocol which bans the possession and deployment of chemical and biological weapons. The DPRK is not a signatory to this treaty and possesses the world's largest arsenal of antibiotic resistant anthrax and bubonic plague, as well as huge stockpiles of tabun, sarin, and VX nerve gases - enough to kill everyone in South Korea and Japan with ease. Despite the momentary concern about the DPRK's ability to launch a missile borne nuclear weapon, the real threat comes from these tactical rockets which can poison Seoul or Fukuoka for decades in a matter of minutes. The US and it's allies routinely test tactical rocket weaponry, however, those projectiles are not filled with tularemia or phosgene. And for all the other posters above making smirky remarks, do you have a smallpox vaccination?

Another day, another rude awakening here in Iwate. Comes on the 6 year anniversary of a deadly tremor that struck Ichinoseki and killed 12 people. The epicenter of today's quake was a little further north but uncomfortably situated beneath some of Tohoku's active volcanoes. Even earthquake resistant buildings don't hold up very well against pyroclastic eruptions.

A great engineer and driver. Shame he wasn't able to translate his track success into selling a street-legal British supercar like Lola, Chevron, and McLaren did.

Just watch LiveLeak or BestGore to get a daily glimpse into the horror of this semi-failed state. A nightmare nation whose most successful music group is Sepultura = The Grave. But then again, is a soccer really a sport worthy of all this effort and expense? My cousin from Sendai and her new husband just got sent to Sao Paulo for his job. I told her not to go and she has been a virtual shut-in living in mortal terror ever since she got there. Kowai desu ne.

These topics were standard fare on classic TV shows like Star Trek, Kolchak - The Night Stalker, Ultraman, and The X-Files from many years past. Movies such as The Andromeda Strain and The Stand, Blood Type Blue, and The Terminator called attention to these scenarios long ago.
