Comic: The Difference Between North and South Korea

If there's anything that best illustrates the differences between North and South Korea, then it has to be this The Oatmeal comic, comparing one simple idea of collecting resources. While the comic is funny, the truth is that you would have to combine those images to get the true nature of North Korea: by day a prisoner works in the freezing cold, and by night they farm gold or resources to earn real world cash for their keepers. Yeah, sorry to be a Debbie Downer…

You can see the second half of it here.
