bombardment!

Most significant:

“North Korea is retaliating for a November artillery attack — with an onslaught of faxes to South Korea, an official said Wednesday.”

I can see the conversation in the whitehouse now:

Advisor: “Mr. President we’ve received reports that S. Korea is currently being bombarded”

President Obama: “Dear God, with what? Conventional? Nuclear?”

Advisor: “Umm… Faxes, sir”

President Obama: “Umm. What?”

Advisor: “Yes, sir, Faxes”

President Obama: “Are you fucking with me b/c it’s Christmas?”

Advisor: “No, Sir, Kinda wish I was”

President Obama: “they’re sending messages via communication that was last featured in what? 1995?”

Advisor: “yes, sir”

President Obama: “righty-o, well, tell the s. koreans we hope they recycle”

Advisor: “Sir, yes, sir.”

Seriously¬† N. Korea is sending propaganda via fax. It’s so cute. It’s like their trying to stampede into S. Korea on horseback with sabers waving in the air. It must be odd having missed roughly the last 25 yrs of commercial technological development b/c your country is run by an idiot asylum escapee.

  1. Well, before you laugh too much, I had to send quite a few important documents by fax in the last couple of years, both to companies and various arms of government. They tend to think that sending the documents via email would be ‘insecure’ – after all, if you use a fax, you can include a signature!

    excuse me while I go over here and cry for a bit.

    What is up with fax crap lately? A friend of mine got a fax machine for Christmas. And to tell you how dumb they are, they got it without having a land line at home thinking it would somehow work magically in thin air. Pfft, and they wanted me to set it up for them. Which tells me they aren’t going to read the instructions and they expect me to teach them how to use something I haven’t touched since the 90s.

    I have needed a fax in several different situations on different continents the last years.

    Fax is used by many even today.
