Speaking of fucked up countries: Vietnam.

In Vietnam, a major TV show was shut down and a TV star was persecuted by the mob because… get ready for this one: a sex video of her was leaked on the Internet. The BBC manages to capture the Vietnamese sense of priorities perfectly:

Vietnam has been hit by hurricanes, floods and a catastrophic bridge collapse of late, but the nation is abuzz with talk of just one thing – a blurry video of an encounter between two teenagers.

The woman is 19 years old. She has sex. Oh-my-god. That is so shocking!

I wonder if we can solve this cultural problem by sending Vietnamese people off to Japan for student exchanges and such. Those who will not die from a heart attack when confronted with Japanese morality will likely reform Vietnam in no time.
