Got my teeth cleaned today by a hygienist that the dental office was 'interviewing'. I guess they interview them by letting them practice on patients. She was Russian, and I believe her initial training was with SMERSH. She was using this ultrasonic waterpik thing on me, and occasionally my jawbone would conduct an all-too audible signal directly into my cochlea. Not to mention the fact that the handpiece dribbled a steady stream of cold water on my neck - Russian water torture.
Since North Korea and nukes are in the news recently, I'll just point out a nuclear advance in South Korea. KAERI (the Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute) has recently discovered a new use for gamma radiation from cobalt-60... space kimchi.
