Just watched part one of Michael Palin's visit to North Korea. Wow. Clearly it was hard for him to peel back the propaganda but it looks like you can be reasonably happy there if you live in the city and go all-in for the cult. Can't wait to see part II where he visits the countryside.

 
If you were watching that on SBS  last night haresfur they ran part 2 hard up against the end of 1 without intro.
Was very interesting , can't say I would like to live there in North Korea tho. For a start I would be troubled to keep up with them and their obligatory consumption of rice wine.

 
Yeah, but I was saturated after the first part. Going to watch the second part on demand

 
Did watch his Himalaya shows. I could see living there if they could just up the oxygen level in the air.

Scotland isn't perfect, but it's progressive (free menstrual products!), it's affordable (bread costs £1=$1.25), the people are wonderfully accepting (yes, there are assholes!), and the country itself is remarkably beautiful and rich with culture.   

I'm living exactly where I want to be and will take my last breath in this, my new country.  Plus, I get Radio Paradise here!


 
Yeah, but are you learning to swear properly and to eat deep-fried anything?

The pants were rolled up beside me.  Calgary police stopped by and seemed genuinely shocked.

Gathered everything into my pack, put on my shorts, walked into the downtown, bought a pair of pants, and then had a guy in Tandy Leather help me make a belt.   Wore the same belt for a few decades until the buckle no longer worked.

This all ends well with me staying in a friend's house in a rather nice part of town.

So funny....  when did being near the doctors become more important that adventure, freedom, exploration?  I think the third body-part replacement surgery might have done it.

Heading soon to Central Portugal...for good.
This place is so f^$ked. Thanks, Commies!

Population almost 60 million. Taxpayers about 3 million, who pay 92% of all the VAT as well, too much of which is lost to outright theft. 17 million on social grants, irregular electricity supply, expropriation without compensation, crumbling infrastructure, cadre deployment, corruption without consequences, prescribed assets, laws that are not conducive to business both big and small.
Hence, that tax base shrinking fast as enterprising people move their enterprises elsewhere.
Hey, but.....freedom!
