Googlicious #4

Today, while researching a train accident that occurred during the horrific famine that killed upwards of a million people in North Korea in the mid-90s, I stumbled upon North Korea Day. It is a day for, well, I can’t quite figure it out:

North Korea Day is a day of squandering wealth. Each year, on North Korea Day, participants are asked to take $100 (American) and waste it on something that is totally unworthy of the money. This could be spent on anything from unprecendented generosity to buying something totally worthless to actual destruction of the currency. With North Korea Day, the sky is the limit!

Is this a reference to wasting money on nukes? On Socialism? Something else? I’m curious…
