Gorilla Guru (NorK fertilizer — not the propaganda kind)


The prevalence of parasitic worms causing health problems in North Korea may be the result of a personal intervention by Kim Jong Un, who urged farmers to spread human excrement on their fields to fertilize crops.

The hermit nation’s leader issued an instruction to farmers in 2014 telling them to use human faeces with animal waste and organic compost on their fields. With a lack of livestock to provide animal fertilizer, agriculturists poured the human excrement, also known as “night soil”, on their fields.

Next thing you know, Kim’ll be importing human feces from Cuba and Venezuela.

The nutrition and widespread health problems that blight North Korea have been highlighted by one North Korean soldier who has recently defected to the south. The army sergeant was found to have dozens of flesh colored parasites in his digestive tract, one of which measured 10.6 inches in length.

The soldier, who has not been identified but is reportedly in his mid-20s, was flown to hospital on Monday after being shot several times while making his escape to South Korea. He was hit in the buttocks, his armpit the back of his shoulder and his knee as he was struck by a hail of bullets from his former North Korean comrades. [story]

What kind of ideology makes its soldiers shoot fellow soldiers in the back?
Okay, right, stupid question.

    This question brought to mind: Bergdahl.

    The most commie part is that, supposedly, the military is treated better than The Masses.

    ^ Vegetables are what food eats.

    ^^ Yeah, you nailed it: they’ll still shoot ‘em in the back, and they’ll take a portion of his family’s rations and salary until they pay for all the food he ate and ammo used.

    ^^^ Yeah, but I couldn’t think of a good segue for that.

    Further to Veeshir’s comment, this guy was one of the NORKs’ elite soldiers, and he’s in that sort of condition.

    Bottom line: All the bluster aside, the NORK army is NOT fit to fight a war against anyone, (And the ROK has one of the toughest bunch of SOBs in the world in their army.)

    Ain’t nothing gonna happen war-wise there any time soon.

    Lord of the Fleas, that was why it was so embarrassing to the Russians when Viktor Belenko bagged ass to Japan with that MiG-25. He was of the elite, he was “The New Soviet Man”.

    When I did my tour in S.Korea back in ’71-’72 the farmers were spreading animal and human waste on their fields. Stunk to high heaven. Maybe I should get checked for worms……
