North Korea Claims Archaeologists Have Found 'Unicorn Lair' In Pyongyang

timothy posted about a year ago | from the not-so-horny-after-all dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 182

eldavojohn writes "NPR pointed out a press release claiming that North Korean archaeologists have found a 'unicorn lair' in Pyongyang. The members of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have "reconfirmed" that this site was used for King Tongmyong's unicorn where the unicorn would concoct his unicorn schemes and do his unicorn things if anyone ventured too closely. The last line is, perhaps, the most important line of the article, 'The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.' Fear not that North Korea is surpassing the world in cryptozoology, Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, TX has claimed to have recently sequenced Bigfoot's DNA and he's part human."

Actually, if it were true, and if the unicorn DNA were tested and shown to not be a horse with a dildo strapped to it's head, it would be news.

North Korea has a running trend of wild claims. This one just reinforces their place as "the nation no one believes".

As a group, they are holding the #1 position in the Batshit Crazy Olympics. The only competition even close are conspiracy theorists, and they're a distant second. They'll have to come up with something much nuttier than the emperor's unicorn farm. So far all the best they have are Aliens, UFOs, the Kennedy Assassination conspiracy, contrails, NWO, GMOs, 9/11 myths, and lizard aliens...

Yes my friends.. The mythical unicorn farm ranks far over lizard aliens. Now, stop taking your court ordered meds, and come up with something better than *that*.

But no, we read about unicorns.

While European powers had their own interest in mind when helping American revolutionaries, that seems disconnected from history, even if compared to an over-simplified glance: France only providing supplies in secret after being asked to, and England not really getting involved with the French until they openly join US forces two years later when American forces demonstrated they could win, at which point Spain was able to be dragged into it too. England certainly had some issues with the locals, wanting continue fighting things even though they knew some colonies were a lost cause later on, despite their conflict with European powers.

That normally should be rather easy to demonstrate... but you only chose to show you seem to have some deficiency in both education and attitude.

Oil has nothing to do with it, in this case: even if they had oil, it's unlikely that the west would liberate them. It's more about China wanting a land buffer between US troops and their mainland. The US military is smart enough to realize that China would almost certainly come in protecting NK if it ever did become a shooting war, and there's too much to lose. The cold war between Russia and the US may be over, but the one between the US and China is just getting started.

I don't think there's anything wrong with mocking propaganda. Propaganda deserves to be mocked, it is often the best way of dealing with it (even in Western countries).

Yes, the situation in North Korea is terrible, but remember many Asian countries like to maintain "face" (a thoroughly ridiculous concept) and embarrassing dictatorships like this can be particularly effective.

I don't know. It's not that idiotic, though not necessarily slashdot oriented. Nothing says they found unicorns. They found a site referenced in older manuscripts that gives credence to a certain king having lived in Pyongyang. The cave has a carving over its entrance indicating that it's a "unicorn lair" (ir they translate right). So the press release isn't claiming anything about unicorns, but it is pushing some propaganda about Pyongyang having been an ancient capitol of Korea.

Of course no one carves this on a real unicorn lair, if the carvings exist they were probably put there after the legend started to grow.

It's sort of like if they found some ancient carving above a cave in England claiming to be where George slew his dragon. Clearly not evidence of a dragon but if authenticated it could be evidence of where the legend started or the site of an early pilgrimage or tourist site.

Sir_Sri (199544) | about 2 years ago | (#42158295)

Because it's so monumentally bizarre that it's worth laughing at?

Would you really want to go into work on monday morning, and not know that North Korea had claimed to find a Unicorn lair?

Lets say korea had a myth of a giant cave under pyongyang where a unicorn lived, that was accessed via a bottomless well. I didn't say the legend had to make sense, bear with me a moment. So some archaeologist goes digging around under pyongyang and finds a really massive cave, and there are some remains in it that appear to be people, and it looks like there might have been a couple of places where there could have been a hole in the ceiling at some point in the past. So then the archaeologist writes an article that says 'lair mentioned in unicorn myth may have been a real place'. That's not funny. That's not a /. post unless he did it with some fancy computer algorithm and google streetview or the like. But traditional digging around archeology? Naw, not important to slashot.

But this. This is different. This appears to be claiming an actual real unicorn lair. That's hilariously crazy. And the thing with north korea is you can't tell if it's an onion piece, their version of the onion piece, or something they are seriously claiming. But it seems legit - and that makes it even more funny. Now the dude in question (who rode said unicorn) and the temple this lair is under appear to be real physical tangible things that are a least in part historically correct. And then there's a bit about a unicorn.

The guy who claimed to sequence bigfoot DNA doesn't warrant the front page, he's just a random crazy person. He's only interesting in conjunction with the story. Now I grant you, north korea is institutionally crazy, but usually they're more 'the dear leader is perfect and we're going to fire missiles over japan to please him' kind of crazy. They're still firing missiles, but they're independently claiming a real unicorn lair. That's crazy even by north korean standards of crazy, and it's not threatening, which makes it hilarious.

First Mickey Mouse, Now Unicorns? (1)

A few months ago North Korea's young new leader was seen on TV with Mickey Mouse [nytimes.com] . It was bizarre, and Disney had no part in it. The best theories I've heard suggest that he is trying to bring some hope and light into the lives of his people. I'm not sure if announcing that unicorns are real and that they're native to North Korea is the best way to do that, but that's probably what's going on here.

Re:First Mickey Mouse, Now Unicorns? (2, Insightful)

TFAFalcon (1839122) | about 2 years ago | (#42157921)

Well you have to consider that the leader was raised in a country where such propaganda is fairly standard. So he might not realize how ludicrous the claims are. And at the same time the population might also be fooled - not because they are stupid, but because they've been bombarded with such 'official statements' their entire lives.

It's kind of like religion - If you are raised in a culture where it's common to hear about virgin births and people rising from the dead then you won't be shocked when a person makes a claim that one of those things happened. So similar claims (like the before mentioned zombie appearing in a vision) will much more likely be accepted then in a culture without those 'background' myths.

We don't have a national curriculum, individual school districts come up with their own. This results in certain hillbilly districts trying to teach religion as science. However this is not the case in the vast majority of US public schools, where evolution is not a controversial subject and there is no mention of creationism or "intelligent design".

To be sure, our education system is far from perfect, but this particular embarrasment is largely isolated to the Bible Belt.

This was an accidental Onion reprint or something. The world is too strange sometimes.

Ever since Japan discovered NyanCat the North Koreans had to find something (anything) to escalate the coolness arms-race.

I'll be tuning in at 11 to find out whose 12 inch dick Kim Jong-un has, and what he's doing with it. Slushy diet, maybe?

No, no. The punchline is, "So, I asked the leprechaun for a 12 inch prick!"

You think that's bad? (2)

I heard some lawmakers in the United States are actively claiming that the world was created 6000 years ago by an old man with a beard, who later went on to bed a Jewish girl and spawn an offspring which ended up being nailed to a tree. Also, talking snakes, burning bushes, and splitting seas. no kidding!

Apparently our shit is lacking.

Supreme Leader: Hey there ladies, want to come back to my lair to see my "unicorn"? I can guarantee that you've never seen a more horny beast.

From the previous story: "South Koreans are by far the heaviest drinkers in Asia and the biggest consumers of spirits in the world, according to the World Health Organization." South Koreans, not the North ones!
