    While the White House is contributing to the raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the citizens of North Korea remain remarkably unfazed.

    Nuclear Volleyball

    The fear of war breaking out between the US and North Korea has increased recently with both sides issuing threats to each other. However, it appears that those fears aren't shared in North Korea, where a Sputnik correspondent arrived last week to observe the preparations and celebrations to honor the nation's most important national holiday.

    Moreover, satellite images from April 16 appear to show workers at the site having a break and playing volleyball. So much for nuclear hysteria!

      Less Popular than United, Hitler, Bee Stings, Tooth Decay...
