“It’s a bird!  No, it’s a plane!  No, it’s our $850 million satellite exploding overhead!”

Impoverished North Korea spent an estimated 850 million dollars on a satellite and rocket to take it into space, while its citizens live a starkly deprived life.  The rocket and satellite never made it into space.  It didn’t even reach flight level 350.  I bet it was pretty, though; all that rocket fuel and debris lighting up the sky.  “LOOK OUT BELOW!”   I hope no fishermen were hit by the falling debris.  Later that day, an enormous new statue of Kim Jong Un was unveiled next to an equally enormous statue of his father, Kim Jong II.

Absolutely Mind Boggling!
