    i watched this national geographic explorer show on north korea yesterday. it was awesome to see an insider's perspective on north korea (national geographic personnel pretended to be staff assistants but instead just taped and interviewed locals... since americans are not allowed to go there), and even more awesome to see this group's mission. The doctors performed over 1000 cataract surgeries in 10 days, and trained some north korean doctors on how to perform the procedures with their limited supplies.

    Makes you want to save the world, yes?
