Net Geo - Inside North Korea (Also avail on netflix streaming). This video really shows how much of an absolute dictator Dear Leader really was. Worshiped in a personality cult perhaps more extreme than anyone else in History. Everyone is trained from birth to love and worship the Dear Leader, and failure too display your absolute devotion will resulting you and possibility your family to disappear into the dark hole of a concentration camp, never to see the outside world again.

Hummmph! I thought I was the only one who gave up golf after shooting 38 under par with 11 holes in one! But alas! I had no press agent to put forth my misspeak.

Look at the picture on #45

Is that first row of generals composed entirely of midgets? Or are they standing in a trench?

This bozo was said to be only 5’2 (and if they are admitting as much he must have been 4’10 without his platform shoes)

He’s got nuthin’ on Obama ...

Obama parted the Red Sea, made manna rain down from heaven, and personally received the 10 Commandments from God ...

Not to mention, he hit 4 home runs on 4 swings in the 2011 World Series, won the 2011 Super Bowl playing 11-1 [both ways] against the Packers, and won every Gold Medal at the 2008 Olympics [setting world records in every event] ...

..................# 35 -—he an Algore have that in common..................

As well as #40!

“A personality evaluation report on him, compiled by psychiatrists suggested that the “big six” group of personality disorders - sadistic, paranoid, antisocial, narcissistic, schizoid and schizotypal - which were shared by dictators Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Saddam Hussein were also dominant in the late North Korean leader. “

I guarantee he didn’t want to appear shorter than any of them so he had the first row in a pit. All that so the official photographs would make him appear more imposing, the guy was clinically insane IMHO.

Editor fail.

Michael Moore wails in grief that none of his movies were among Kim Jong-dead's favorites.

It was also reported of that famous golf game that Kim asked who those small fellows were out on the fairway and on the greens.

He was told they were the greens keepers, making sure the grass didn’t interfere with the fearless leader’s balls.

Little did he know at the time that his balls were being repositioned next to or in the cup.

Probably.

ROK /DMZ (watching the NKA) was the only place I’ve ever witnessed a soldier executed on the spot for disobedience .

Nope. In North Korea, time runs backward. Kim can take credit for that.

At university it was claimed in his biography that he wrote no fewer than 1,500 books in three years

ZKim apparently produced a patriotic 100-part documentary series on the history of his North Korean homeland as well as writing a book titled On the Art of Cinema.

Kim also apparently composed six operas and enjoyed staging musicals.

The sheer genius and talent of this man. What will the world ever do without him? (Cue North Koreans wailing in the streets.)
