“When I was in third grade of elementary school my friend Young-il had a bowel movement and it froze. He said, ‘it looks like Mt. Paetku.’ Others reported him and he had to write statements of repentance in his notebook for a couple of months. After all, Mount Paektu was where Kim Il-sung participated in the anti-Japanese struggle”

-Ahn Choog Hak, North Korean defector. From Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader by Bradley K. Martin.
