No one has yet confirmed that the North Koreans have fired an underwater ballistic missile in the general direction of the United States just yet, but suffice it to say, everyone is super sure it happened. After all, when you consider that Kim Jong Un once "launched" a full on nuclear assault with an Atari control panel that wasn't plugged in, it's easy to believe that they've both set sail in a seafaring vessel that can operate with impunity in local waters, and managed to send a warhead careening into the great beyond, no doubt terrifying entire schools of underwater creatures.
It is, of course, entirely possible that this all happened in an elaborate Playmobil landcape set up in Kim Jong Un's third bedroom. But for now, at least, the world is standing up and taking notice.
North Korea has carried out a successful underwater test of a ballistic missile, the North Korean state news agency reported.
Leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test himself, KCNA reported on Saturday (Friday evening, ET).
