    Why moron Americans visit North Korea and end up with this..........

    Morons is being said nicely

    The comments are hilarious but dead on.

    Why is it that no other countries people visit this place? They know better. We have a bunch of f*cking morons in this country thinking they can change the minds of that ignorant government.

    Dennis Rodman is the only one allowed you know, because he is like them but born on Jupiter.

    Maybe he's trying to preemptively build an insanity defense

    I've definitely read of people from other countries going there on work programs or just as tourists. You generally don't get in to any trouble unless you don't follow their rules (although I've also read it's a good idea to not tell everyone you're from the United States).

    I think most countries have people that visit there with no issue except the USA and SK for obvious reasons.

    Goldfly would go over there. In fact maybe it is goldfly. Perhaps we should offer to trade five of our posters to get goldfly back.
    From your favorite message board poster (me).

    Yeah, I really don't get that decision either. If someone wants to get killed or just disappear all they have to do is go to Detroit, no need for a passport, all that expensive air fare, etc. As for trading posters, who gets to pick which 5?

    I visited Pyongyang four years ago, when travel restrictions into the country were eased up a bit ... arranged through a Chinese tour company. I was living in Seoul at the time, and figured why not. Without going into too much detail, I really enjoyed the trip and felt extremely safe (although, timing was everything -- two weeks after my return the North Koreans shelled Yeonpyeong Island, which was a pretty big deal).

    The visa in my passport always got a long stare. Thank goodness I have a new one now.

    You are batsh!t crazy!! There I said it. It must have been on your bucket list. If I were 7 inches taller, they might think I was Rodman minus the tats if I visited but no way in hell I would visit that place.

    Have you ever seen Rodman in person? I have (unfortunately), you couldn't possibly look like him or act like him if you tried.

    Actually I have on several occasions.

    I was a bouncer at the "Beach" nightclub in Vegas (closed a few years ago) and he rented it out a few times when I worked there.

    You made me actually laugh. Maybe it's not quite time for you to hang it up.



    (I'm just trying not to be one of the traded posters.)

    I'll trade them O'Reilly, Hannity, Coulter, Limbaugh, and Franken for Goldfly.

    I'd love to visit North Korea. The mystery factor I guess. I'd leave my Bible in some other country tho.

    I'll never have the guts to do it, but the pictures I've seen are so......odd that I always get sucked into the blogs that publish them.

    A prevous boss of mine visited North Korea on business. He's a programmer/analyst who went there to implement some system of such. That was 1994. I also bet he used either his German or Australian passport as I don't believe he'd moved to the states yet. Sadly I always forgot to make him tell stories about it.

    Risk taker?

    I might get away when visiting there. All I have to say I am so and so pro player, LOL, we looked the same to them.

    I think ANYONE who has some sort of military background in the US should not take a chance of going to NK. Doesn't matter if you weren't a Korean War vet or not. They'll look at your background and see you served in the military and think automatically you were an undercover spy looking to commit war. So yes AA that includes you too.

    Guy was an idiot. They tell you in the tourism literature with North Korea do not bring in Bibles and you have to sign a paper on the airplane saying that your not bringing in a bible.

    I feel bad for the poor worker who found the bible. Hope she's not in the prison camps.

    I was at the North/South Korean border on 9-11 and just barely got back to Japan before flights were grounded. I'd go to North Korea with Dennis Rodman but wouldn't go on my own. I didn't like S.Korea. Just a dirtier version of Japan and you can get better Korean food in Japan.
