There is already a thread to talk about Kim's death. If we talk about in this thread it will get out of control andno one wants to see this thread locked.

I have to say ever since Kim Jong Ill died, this thread has achieved more attention than as usual.

Never had such problems, for instance, in China which is "known" for having a thing for being "in control".
I have been hindered from taking pictures in Belfast (UK) and I was once almost arrested because of taking a picture of the British embasy in Cairo (Egypt).

Great tower! Dear leader didn't invest a cent on it until he got pissed off of the slack concrete giant and decided to give it a lick of glass! ****, that's more than 20 years of construction! Rot in hell.

Yes its great country, they partying all the time:



Sorry, couldn't resist, its hilarious

As for the tower itself with the new glass I think it looks really nice. If they could finish all the interiors too that would be great

What's the betting that this will be renamed the Kim Jong-il tower?
