BREAKING NEWS: The people have voted and the results have been tabulated. Here's my take on the Dick-tator of your choice (or by popular vote at least) - KIMMY JONG UN!
I remain intrigued by the fact that a human being like KJU exists and that such an authoritarian regime still thrives in the 21st century. It's crazy how the entire patriarchy has successfully isolated a nation from the whole world.
Here is a man who has simply ignored all of the UN's calls to stop violation of numerous human rights and who still carries out purges and executions like it's year 1825. Let's not forget how the Internet basically does not exist and TV/radio are controlled by a state-approved domestic programming. The state has even regulated the type of HAIRCUTS men and women are allowed to have. Yup, haircuts. It's like being stuck in secondary school all your life. This guy lives on the same planet as you and I.
What a time to be alive.
The better question is "how you gonna get pregnant if all you do is suck dick for a living!?"💁♂️ Remember when #Vice visited #NorthKorea , made cool mini docs on drugs and gangs, and gave us insightful social commentary!? Me either.😏
• 1/Pavilion at the Tomb of King Kongmin; 2/3/Tomb of King Kongmin | Kaesong
• This tomb was constructed for seven years between 1365 and 1372, after the death of King Kongmin's queen, who was Mongolian. The story goes that King Kongmin sent Fengshui experts around the area to look for the right place to build the tomb. Every time an expert identified a suitable location that the king didn't like, he had the expert executed. Then one day, an expert found this location and waited as the king ascended the hill to see the view. The king instructed his staff to kill the expert if he'd wave his handkerchief from the top of the hill - a sign he also didn't like this location. When he reached the top of the hill, he swiped the sweat off his forehead with his handkerchief - and accidentally had the Fengshui expert killed by his unintentional gesture 😅
