So, moving. Fun. We managed to get everything packed up and/or disassembled and into the van and got the van back to the house... and for most of the rest of the week, it looks like, we have so very much cleaning, juggling, and unpacking to do. Argh. And some manner of rodent appears to have been living in my room while I was away. I dislike transitions at the best of times...

Eh, despite, I envy you. I'll next be moving when I've graduated (much like you have, IIRC) and have a new job lined up, so fun times.

I rather like transitions, in any case. There's something cathartic about burning bridges, ensuring you'll either never or rarely will be seeing a place or the people associated with it ever again. I feel like I can never get enough fresh starts.

Soooo, I know the next time I got a hankering for a long read I'd do Worm, but I just downloaded an ebook of Finnegans Wake because apparently I'm a masochist. Wish me luck.

Military peoples: not that I expect you to have any specifics, but do any of you have an estimation for how long North Korea's going to remain a threat?
They claim their pact of non-aggression is over, threaten that they've "ratified" the use of nuclear weapons on South Korea, and are just generally gearing up for another series of unprovoked attacks and murders they expect to be met with no response.

I'd really like it if North Korea could be removed from existance as judiciously as possible.

You know why we're in Korea still?

To keep the South from going North. South Korea has one of the largest, best-trained, and best-equipped armies in the world (and is a steadfastly loyal ally of the US, who supplies most of the equipment and training). About two-thirds of the North Korean Army doesn't have weapons at all. They're hilariously untrained and they're so under-supplied that they're issued extra boots as field rations.

If North Korea's finally done pussyfooting and wants to start some shit, we won't even have time to get the phone call, let alone mobilize, before the North gets crushed

I don't want to wait. I know how the fight would end. The fact remains we seem to be waiting for them to kill some more south koreans and their allies. Perhaps with a dirty bomb. Then they're going to sit back and pat themselves on the back since I think they're still allied with China or whatever and expect nothing to come of it. Then they will wait several more years and kill again. And again. And again.
North Korea just needs to be removed.

Maybe I shouldn't have a say in this since I wouldn't be part of the fighting, but their continued existence is sickening. It needs to stop. The country needs to end.

I have no trouble believing that's true, I've heard horror stories of grandfather's diggin up their grandchildren's graves for food and father's murdering their kids so they can eat. Though these are stories that I heard I never went out of my way to look up if this was true or not so grains of salt, good chance I'm talking shit. But hearing they're giving their troops boots to eat I think it gives those stories some credibility.

Anyway if they're resorting to giving their troops boots to eat the country can't last that much longer, can it?

Depends on who they're more afraid of: The US or whoever's in charge

So far, they seem to be far more scared of whoever's in charge, so they keep fighting a war that ended...what...a few decades ago?

One of the things about North Korea is that while they're going to flaunt their nuclear arsenal, they're never going to go beyond that since as crazy as their leaders are, they know that the day they set off a nuke is the day that they go beyond just being a nuisance, in which case they're going to get curbstomped (most likely by China). Rather, they're going to use it to extort foreign aid as they've done in the past.

Another factor is that by this point, the two Koreas have so radically diverged culturally and economically that lot of people in the South don't want to reunify. It's like the Berlin Wall except even more extreme. On one side, you've got an incredibly successful cosmopolitan economy, and on the other side, you've got some of the most miserable conditions in the world right now.

I'm not saying they're likely to set off a full-scale nuke and set off a war. Just that they're going to continue to torpedo the occasional ship, kidnap and kill soldiers and civilians, and continue their "nuisance" behavior of murdering people because the nations involved consider these human sacrifices an acceptable cost for maintaining the peace.
And I find that disgusting. Maybe they'll put together a small dirty bomb and set it off near south korean shores or something. Again, maybe "not enough" to take action on, but easily enough to hurt people misfortunate-enough to be within arm's length of the supposedly incompetent, but still very capable of causing suffering, little despot country.

Eh, Valve has to do what is right for their company. I don't see why they should have to stick their necks out for people whose intention is strictly to make an offensive game that will draw as much negative publicity as possible in order to make a statement... or whatever it is they are doing. If they could potentially catch hell and lose some producers or consumers as a result for supporting one independent game studio,  I don't see the draw. They didn't enter this business to have some kind of integrity. At least, not the sort that supports people just trying to piss others off.
If the people who make Hatred's next game is just about reenacting racial violence, or is a human trafficking simulator, or etc... I still don't see how Valve should be obligated to support it.
When did they ever say they would?

However, they do allow a lot of total crap to stay up in the store, stuff like Air Control, The slaughtering grounds etc.

You mean by removing the game from a service that allows their customers to vote on whether or not they want a game on the store? That's the opposite of a free market.
