How does North Korea send its threats? It doesn’t load up an angry video on YouTube, or send well-worded tweet. It doesn’t even use the post office to send their words of condemnation. It uses a good old fax machine. I wonder if their top ranking officials have even caught up to AOL.

In 2013, following an anti-North Korean demonstration in South Korea, officials from the North threatened to bring a “merciless” strike via the outdated tech. The rallies marked the death of the North Korean leader, Kim John-Il.

The letter said that they did not appreciate the “repeated extra-large provocations to North Korea’s highest dignity taking place in the middle of Seoul,” threatening to strike with a “merciless retaliation without warning.”

South Korea responded back via fax saying that if North Korea did any such thing, they could expect a “resolute punishment.”

In 2009, a Christian group from Oklahoma sent North Korea bible passages via fax for about a year. The group said they eventually got a message back saying “something very bad will happen” if they continued sending messages.
