Rocket Watch 2009 continues...

It's still not clear how South Korea, the United States and Japan will respond to North Korea's successful nuclear test today, but one thing's for sure: there's never a shortage of crazy news from this peninsula. 

After all, The Washington Post reports that the U.S. has confirmed North Korea has "enough weapons-grade plutonium to make six to eight bombs." 

So... that's exciting. 

In other Korean news (albeit infinitely less important than imminent death -slash- possible radiation poisoning):

- Koreans use cell phones for everything. 

- Milan, Paris, New York, Seoul

- Smart people doing a smart thing to save the environment. 

- You can get anything delivered here, any time of the day or night. 

- Busan now boasts the largest department store in the world. 

- Any country that has brawling politicians is worth living in, or at least visiting. 

- Old Boy was seriously disturbing but brilliant. If Thirst is half as good, it's worth watching.
