North Korea 1976

Platform shoes, eh? Polyester leisure suits, Pong & Disco can't be far behind. I knew that North Korea was slightly behind technologically, but damn.....the 1970's? Really? At this rate the X-Box should be available in North Korean department stores, in time for X-Mas of 2047. It also says that more cell phones will be available. It would be funny to see North Koreans carrying around the Motorola DynaTAC ("The Brick"). I wonder what movies will premier at North Korean theaters? Star Wars: Episode IV? Jaws? The Godfather? Hey, maybe they'll open a "Studio 54" in Pyongyang? Does anybody know how to say "Hey baby, what's your sign?" in North Korean? LOL
