Is this real? Really? This is somehow disturbing.

Guy’s a freakin’ bozo, man…
Darn fermented apples!
Weird. Saw this on reddit this morning. I am surprised by this. Apparently the fat boy was there, but he’s not in this vid. Couldn’t find much online, but it’s apparently real. Although it is old… from 2018.
There is seemingly, besides the reddit post, just this piece out there, from the BBC:
Kim Jong-un watches K-pop stars perform in Pyongyang
1 April 2018
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his wife have watched South Korean K-pop stars perform in a rare event in Pyongyang.
Mr Kim clapped along and then met performers backstage where he conversed and took pictures, said reports.
It is the first musical delegation to visit in more than a decade as the leaders of the two countries on the divided peninsula prepare to meet.
More than 11 acts are in Pyongyang for two shows.
The North sent performers to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea earlier this year.
The exchanges come amid thawing relations between the Koreas after months of tension.
The concert, titled Spring is Coming, took place on Sunday evening local time at the 1,500-seat East Pyongyang Grand Theatre, said South Korean media.
The delegation, which combines K-pop, rock and other genres, is set to perform again on Tuesday.
It didn’t work, though.
Although the North and South have recently reopened the hotline between the two countries and some efforts at cooperation in a couple of projects are now in place, the North is currently having major crackdowns on citizens who view any sort of foreign material. Immediate punishments include public executions, being shipped off to the political prison camps and sending the families of offenders into exile. They are even building new political prison camps to house all the offenders, as the old ones fill up. They’re up to Camp #27 now. You don’t want to be in one.
Awful photo quality, on some of them, but some are quite good, and, they’re the real thing.

A set of UFO images taken in the Arctic and believed to date from 1971 is currently igniting the various conspiratorial and paranormal discussion forums around the world.
The images are believed to have been taken from the submarine USS Trepang SSN 674 while it was traveling between Iceland and Jan Mayen Island in Norway. Several UFO hunters say the photographs are evidence of secret US aircraft tests, while others claim they are alien craft looking for places to drill for oil.
Alex Mistretta, a paranormal investigator, studied the images after their first appearance in French paranormal magazine Top Secret , according to Black Vault . Mistretta claims that his source told him that the photos were taken from the American submarine, under the leadership of Admiral Dean Reynolds Sackett, Jr .
Official documents seem to confirm this claim, but the information is so readily available that some have said it does not prove the validity of the images. An inscription on one of the photos reads: “Official Photograph. Not to be Released. CT ”Another:“ Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate (sic) SSN 674. Criminal Sanction ”.
Commentator Bill Smillie suggests that all the images may be of a single object that has the ability to change shape, according to news published in The Express . “This is a selection of photos that feature types of UFOs that have been regularly spotted by witnesses in all parts of the world,” said Nigel Watson, author of UFO Investigations Manua .
“Cigar-shaped or airship-shaped spaceships have been reported since 1896 when there was a large wave of ‘ghost’ airship sightings across the United States.” Watson notes that explorer Benjamin Trueblood had seen it on a polar expedition in 1908, the Eskimos he encountered were keen to talk about an airship they had seen. “I am not sure of their authenticity,” says Watson. “There are definitely going to be ufologists who are going to scratch their heads and speculate that UFOs have a base in arctic regions,” he concludes.

Mysterious physically distanced Martian pebbles
Jun 27, 2021
Episode 12 A thin layer of stones known as desert pavement is common in Earth’s deserts, but the desert planet Mars has its own version. The pebbles somehow manage to maintain physical distance.
Oh, nice, another oddity!
Photograph of a Helicopter and a Rover from a Spacecraft orbiting Mars at an altitude of 279 km (173.4 miles) on September 24 2021, Local Mars time 15:30.
After a dramatic landing in February, the Perseverance rover and its Helicopter sidekick was re-imaged by HiRISE about 700 meters (2300 feet) from its original landing site. The rover doesn’t drive in a straight line though, and has covered much more ground than that (faint wheel tracks on the nearby ground are visible). HiRISE images like this one allow the rover team to choose the best route to get to their primary target and help put the rover’s observations in context within Jezero Crater.
- The distance between the rover and the helicopter when this image was taken on September 24th was 175 meters (574 feet)
- MRO Spacecraft altitude 279.0 km (173.4 miles)
- Original image scale range from 28.8 cm/pixel (with 1 x 1 binning) to 57.6 cm/pixel (with 2 x 2 binning)
- Map projected scale 25 cm/pixel and North is up
- Raw images: www.uahirise.org/ESP_071077_1985
- Viewed and cropped with HiView software from the 390 Mb HiRISE image
- The HiRISE camera is onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) that’s been orbiting and imaging Mars for 15 years.
- The HiRISE camera was built by Ball Aerospace and Technology Corporation and is operated by the University of Arizona.

Pfizer Scientists: ‘Your [COVID] Antibodies Are Better Than The [Pfizer] Vaccination.’

The notorious Aoji Coal Mine is renowned as the worst place to be in North Korea. This guy, amazingly, made it out of there alive and well.
Story of Geum Hee, A Bud of Hope in Aoji Coal Mine
By Daily NK
[imText1]There have been over 10,000 North Korean defectors arriving to South Korea since the beginning of 2007. Although they came to South Korea in hope of a better life, they realize that the reality is quite different. They claim that, “The only thing that has gotten better since we’ve been here is that we are no longer starving.”
Familiar to the bloody violation of human rights in North Korea, we often mistaken that North Korean defectors arriving to South Korea would only have horrendous memories from their home. We also believe that now that they are in the South, they will be happy enough that they are no longer starving and that they are away from that bloody reality of North Korea.
However, in the hearts of these North Korean defectors lie the deep, unquenched nostalgia for their home. A book written by Choi Geum Hee, who defected from North korea when she was 15 years old and studies Chinese Literature in Hankuk University of Foreign Studies was recently published. Her book is titled, “Geum Hee’s Journey”
Geum Hee was born in a coal mining village, Aoji which means “A village of burning stones” in the language of Jurchens (Tungus people). Although, Aoji is known as a place of exile, for Geum Hee, it is a home where she had spent days running around and playing care freely with her friends.
Before there was a severe food shortage, Aoji was a good small village. The book reveals that North Korean children are not always in the state of starvation, poverty and indoctrination, but rather that they have their own ways of living seeking for their own naive happiness.
We can read about the sweet bitter love stories of her parents. Geum Hee’s father has confessed his love to Geum Hee’s mother through the romantic love letters, which led to an eventual marriage between them. The marriage that transcends all social class barrier, as shown from the marriage of Geum Hee’s parents.
The story about television in North Korea sends nostalgic remembrance of the situation that South Korea was in during 1970s. When Geum Hee’s family got a television, every kid in the neighborhood gathered around her house at exactly 5:30 pm to watch the child movies, singing along to the theme song.
Geum Hee’s favorite show, “Animal Kingdom” was a show- a sole method- that allowed them to know more about animals even without going to the zoo.
However, the reality of North Korea was not as colorful and beautiful as Geum Hee’s childhood depiction. In her young years, Geum Hee had to witness a brutal, cruel execution. It was a instruction of Kim Jong Il that all students must witness the public execution. After seeing the scene of the execution covered with blood and scattered brain, the young Geum Hee had nightmares for a long time.
Afterwards, the “March of Tribulation (Mass starvation period in the 1990s)” came which led to stark starvation and poverty for Geum Hee and her family. Her family lived each day through eating porridge. Geum Hee would go hungry every day waiting for her mother. There were times when she resented her mother for not being able to come home late at night without any food for them.
Their situation worsened and her older siblings would go up to the mountain to hunt for food. When her neighbors begin to die one by one, her family decides to flee to China.
After going through a hell arriving to China, Geum Hee’s family obtains a small boat and jumps into the ocean. When their small boat was on the verge of sinking, Geum Hee prayed for survival. “Please, God, save us. I don’t want to die. I am still young. I want to live. I don’t have to go to South Korea. Please save us.” After a long time, a Chinese ship nearby came to rescue her family.
Her family was able to enter South Korea by journeying through Myanmar. However, the South Korea that they had long anticipated was not the South Korea that they had imagined.
“It was so scary for me to mention that I was from the North. I was so scared so I couldn’t say anything – and I lied that I was from Kangwong province. By denying my root, my entire identity was discolored with lies and my identity was lost.”
Geum Hee reveals that the differential treatment by the South Koreans to North Koreans was extremely painful and difficult for her.
However, Geum Hee learned about love in South Korea. She said that the friends in her school and her teachers had changed her. The people who taught her passionately, allowed her to talk about herself and her story without disguise had brought Geum Hee to be where she is now.
“Just when all the prejudice on South Korea was forming, I was able to meet all my gracious friends and teachers. Through their support and love I was able to find myself and love myself. Because of the people who accepted me, believed in me and loved me for who I am- I am able to gain peace.”
Geum Hee shouts, “I am a North Korean” confidently. Although she went through a difficult time back home, her love for her country still remains the same. Before crossing the Tumen River, she bowed towards her homeland, making a promise that she will come back again. Keeping that promise deep within, Geum Hee aspires to see her promise and wish come true soon.
Wild. The DPRK has fascinated me ever since the reports started coming out a few years ago about the incredibly cruel prison camps along with the bizarre conditions underway for 70 years in the country. I remember the times the Vice people went there, showing weird scenes; and that was all just in the parts they let people see. It is still exactly the same. The entire country, technically speaking, is a prison, as you cannot leave and you need permission to even go across town.
Search North Korea here for a lot of posts over the years. I regret that my super duper categories list was destroyed in the past along with the who;e database and it lost all that, but if you search specific terms it will find stuff. Sigh.

Lockheed Exec Refuses To Comment On Video Exposing Mystery Aviation Technology

This video is making the rounds online and I am not even close to any kind of expert, I hope some of you can shed light on what this actually is. Sorry cant embed the video.
The general manager of Lockheed’s most secretive arm, known as “Skunk Works”, refused to comment Tuesday on a mysterious aviation technology spotted recently at a Lockheed testing facility in the Mojave Desert outside of Palmdale, California.
A video began making the rounds on Twitter Sept. 22 exposing an oddly shaped, sleek aircraft being loaded onto a flatbed trailer.
The video was re-posted by Ruben Hofs, an aviation enthusiast, who he says stumbled across it on TikTok.
Defense One’s Global Business Editor Marcus Weisgerber hosted a conversation with Jeff Babione, Lockheed Martin’s vice president and general manager of Skunk Works on Tuesday.
Weisgerber asked Babione about the video of the alleged Skunk Works’ aircraft technology.
“Alright, Jeff, we’ve gotten a number of questions about this, and it was about a video last week that surfaced on Twitter of an AFA [Aerial Rocket Artillery]” at “allegedly a Lockheed facility in some shape if you will on the back of a flatbed truck,” Weisgerber said. He then asked, “Are you able to tell us anything about what we saw?”
Babione smiled and replied, “I can’t.”
“Ok,” Weisgerber laughed, “Has your security posture changed?”
Babione chuckled, took a deep breath, and responded, “Uh, we’re, we’re in good shape.”
If someone could post this video from the link or twitter it would be great. Thank You!
Mmmm, yes, evisceration is sometimes a good thing. But I am too emotionally exhausted to write much about it. But “Whatever one thinks of Rand Paul, is there anything not true in what he said here?” Nope.

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Bacerra travels the country calling people “flat-earthers” that dare question whether or not their natural immunity after having had Covid-19 is as good as that from the pharma jab.
As Rand Paul points out, Bacerra is not a medical doctor, nor does he have a science degree. Bacerra wasn’t even aware of the studies showing that natural immunity may even be better, yet Becerra never misses a chance to insult those that even question the possibility.
I hope the natural immunity issue continues to be front and center in the debates.

Now, when the day goes to sleep
And the full moon looks
The night is so black that the darkness cooks
Don’t you come creepin’ around
Makin’ me do things I don’t wanna do
Can’t believe that you need my love so bad
Come sneakin’ around tryin’ to drive me mad
Bustin’ in on my dreams
Makin’ me see things I don’t wanna see
‘Cause you’re da Green Manalishi
With the two prong crown
All my tryin’ is up all your bringin’ is down
Just takin’ my love then slippin’ away
Leavin’ me here just tryin’ to keep from followin’ you

This Telescope Just Observed Something Huge Approach Our Moon That Can’t Be Explained
Sep 24, 2021
This telescope just observed something huge approach our Moon that can’t be explained. Today, we take a look at what this telescope observed close to our Moon.
The Moon is one of the most studied celestial objects outside of Earth. In 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon, marking a turning point in humanity, in which space agencies promised to return.
As mentioned by spacex, only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history, noting that no one has been back since 1972. Spacex have announced that they plan to send their Starship spacecraft and Super Heavy rocket to the Moon, noting that Starship will have the ability to carry in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit.
Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!
This one, I like, as it actually appears to be real, as opposed to the other vids I have seen in this genre, which do not appear so. So… what is it?
