    Default North Korea hand clapping ritual

    The hand clapping ritual when the North Korean 'parliament' is in action is fascinating - how do the 'delegates' know when to stop clapping?
    Countless times I've tried to scan their faces, looking for signs of momentary indecision, desperately seeking an expression that says mmm, maybe I should stop clapping now.
    However, so far without success.
    I suspect that the Great Leader (or is it the Dear Leader?) sometimes has fun with the delegates, sometimes seeming to abandon his clapping, then resuming it, hoping to catch a careless delegate at half clap.
    At least, this was the impression that I got when I was watching the transfer of power* event in North Korea on the news last night.
    *No idea what else to call it.

    No.
    In fact, I don't even suspect a terrorist intention.

    If I wanted to put my finger in North Korea's hole, ie. criticise it, which is what I think you mean, I would criticise the entire regime.
    I would not just make a few comments about the North Korean hand clapping ritual.

    Surgical stocking too tight?
    Being questioned on the rack?

    You know the allies do not torture prisoners, GW told us that!

    Hand clapping? Is the hall near water or a swamp are they eliminating mozzies before they start?

    Lol!

    Who cares? Whatever they do, it can't be any worse than what the Taleban etc. do.

    Bring back the rack!

    Serious question. If an interrogator decided to get some exercise while a victim was on the rack, would it be a bit cruel to say "I'm just going to stretch my legs."

    Probably a cue to stop clapping. Anyone who claps longer than they should is taken out by a sniper.
