Reuters: U.S. experts who have been forecasting an imminent North Korean nuclear test said on Tuesday they were surprised when they viewed their latest satellite images of the country's nuclear test site and saw volleyball games under way. ... "We see that at three locations in the facility -- in the main administrative area, at the support area, at the command center and at the guard barracks near the command center -- they have volleyball games going on," said Joe Bermudez, an expert with 38 North, an independent North Korea monitoring project based in Washington. Bermudez offered two possible explanations -- that the test site could be going into "a standby mode" or that the games were intended to confuse observers, given North Korea knows that Punggye-ri is under constant observation.

Those aren't volley balls, they're nuclear bombs with which the N Koreans are experimenting with new delivery systems.

Reminds me of how Russian navy conscripts who were forced to serve on their early nuclear submarines got a bonus called "childless pay", because the unshielded reactors were making them sterile. The NORK volleyballers probably got an extra bowl of last year's rice.
