    That 4chan think the supposed gas chambers that were supposedly at Kwan-li-so No. 22 are for real, unless it is indeed a coincidence.

    If it is the case its highly ironic really, as the only testimony about the gas chambers comes from a former officer of the State Security Agency (sometimes referred to as the National Security Agency by North Korean defectors or as the State Security Department or Ministry of State Security by North Korean authorities) by the pseudonym of "Kwon Hyok".

    If it is indeed true, the anarchists are following the word of a North Korean security cop, they're 50 times worse than the Stasi (depending on your Songbun status) and about as corrupt as the RUF were in Sierra Leone. And this one's actually killed people as opposed to just scaring the hell out of them and extorting them like most Security Police in North Korea.

    The possibility of these fools following someone like that highly amuses me, as dark a thought as it is.

    There is no Tim Cook.

    That's a Paul O'Grady character.

    Here's the proof.

    Slap a Bet Lynch wig on him and you'd have Lily Savage.

      @dogged, a million thanks. The "Tim Cook looks like someone and I can't quite place it" thing has been bugging me for ages...

    Marissa Mayer only got picked because she is fit.

    Obama won then, how predictable

    Not that I have anything against him, but Malala Yousafzai should have won this one by a country mile.
