Kim Jong-il hailed as superbrain

If weapons inspectors ever get inside North Korea, they will know who to ask for detailed technical reports on the country's nuclear programme - its Dear Leader.

Kim Jong-il, according to a North Korean website, has powers of recall and concentration that even the most cerebral of revolutionary socialists can only dream of.

The website claims that the North Korean president can cite a soldier's entire career faultlessly, never forgets telephone numbers and can memorise computer code.

As soon as he wakes up, Mr Kim apparently undergoes intensive mental training, committing to memory the phone numbers of fellow workers, among other essential data.

The website recalls a meeting in 2002 in which Mr Kim stunned his officials by reeling off their telephone numbers "with lightning speed".

The site also carried Mr Kim's tips on emulating his accomplishments: "A person's memory gets better when they use their brain often," was his advice.

Mr Kim's amazing powers also extend into the physical realm. He is, according to those around him, an expert horseman and golfer, having shot 11 holes-in-one during his first-ever round.

I bet KJI invented Al Gore, who invented the internet. I really think that's true. You'd have to be a super-brain to invent the internet like Al did, but you'd have to an even greater super-brain to invent the super-brain that invented the internet!

Not that they are biased or anything.

Doesn't anyone else think that Kim-Yong il should be a rapper.

He's got the look.

If he could shoot 11 aces in one round of golf, then his countries poverty could be eliminated in one season of otherwise despicable capitalist pig PGA tour. I'm sure he outdrives Tiger too.

KJil: "I am Supreme Brain Dictator. Golf hole should be where my ball is!"
[sounds of digging]
KJil: "Socialist victory for the people! Hole in one!"

N. Korea's new, taxing economy: One woman's story



Special to World Tribune.com
EAST-ASIA-INTEL.COM
Wednesday, August 3, 2005
North Koreans who survived the system in which the state provided everything were on their own when the state failed to provide food during the famine of the past decade.

That tragedy, combined with the government's experiment with a partial market economy have now given rise to a huge population of peddlers and retailers throughout the country.

But on top of innumerable difficulties they face — lack of materials, infrastructure, experience and market systems — these neophyte business people face two new tyrannies: mounting prices and taxes.

Lee, a North Korean businesswoman from Hoeryong, North Hamkyong Province, said she had to come to China because she could not buy rice for herself and two sons much less pay for their schooling.

Theoretically, North Korea has full employment since everyone must have a job. Lee was a garment factory worker and still is on its payroll. But she has not been paid since 1994, when the factory stopped operating due to the lack of raw materials.

To make matters worse, distribution of food also stopped. Many people went to cities to become peddlers. Under regulations, however, workers must still report to work every day even though there is no work to do. Those who became peddlers paid the factory 5,000 Won for doing their own business without reporting to work.

The central government still allocates production quotas to factories. "This is nothing but a pretext to collect tax money," Lee said. "Of the money collected from the factory workers doing business, the factory manager and the party official get their portion and send the rest to the government," she said.

"If you think the payment to the factory is the only tax we pay, you are wrong," she said. "We pay another 5,000 Won for the peddler's stand we use at the marketplace. And then there are taxes we pay to our village authorities. Whenever there is a special national project planned, they collect money from us."

The biggest irony for the "great socialist society" is that people have to pay for textbooks and teachers' salaries, Lee said. Teachers have long been unpaid by the state and cannot leave the school because they have to teach the children. So the school collects money from the students to pay the teachers.

"I made about 80,000 Won a month selling things in the market," Lee said "The authorities take half of the money as tax and dues. Sure, I can live with 40,000 Won, but not enough to send my two boys to school."

She shrugged and added, "That's why I bribed the border guard and crossed the river to come here."

That's just the problem with ol' Kim:

The little bastard really does think he is god.

I can't WAIT to see him meet the real God.

Ronery or not, God is going to lay the smack down on him.
