I also am not personally familiar with Kim, but I had heard of it thanks to a story my dad likes to tell.
Apparently, he and his brother were given Kim as a reading assignment. His brother didn't feel it had any redeeming value, and decided to use it for archery practice. After hitting it a few times, he went through, scoring points every time an arrow had passed through the word "Kim".
Anyway, as a long time listener to the idle network, this is what gets me to create an account on the forum. Your non-video game tangents are part of what gives this podcast so much character. Good job, guys!
