He’s a Hell of a Guy, eh?

SEOUL (Reuters) –

North Korea‘s Dear Leader Kim Jong-il
never forgets a phone number, a cadre’s career or a line of
computer code.

According to an article posted Tuesday on a Web site run by
North Korea, Kim wakes up early every day for intensive memory
training where he sits down and commits to his keen mind items
such as the phone numbers of workers in his Stalinist state.

"I remember all computer codes and telephones that workers
are using now," Kim was quoted as saying on the Web Site
"Uri-Min-jok-kiri" (www.uriminzokkiri.dprkorea.com), or "Among
our People."

Kim surprised a group of North Korean officials attending a
meeting in 2002 by recalling all their phone numbers "with
lightning speed," the site said.

On a day Kim visited a cemetery, he looked around at the
tombs and he remembered the achievements, characteristics,
tastes and bereaved family members for hundreds of the dead by
a quick glance at the names on tombstones, it said.

"All the attendants were surprised at his incredible
memory," the site says.

North Korean propaganda is ripe with the amazing
achievements of its Dear Leader. The highly controlled state
also closely monitors its citizens to make sure they do not
speak out against Kim or challenge his rule.

Kim pilots jet fighters, pens operas, produces movies and
accomplished a feat unmatched in the annals of professional
golf by shooting 11 holes-in-one on the first round he ever

The Web Site said Kim told all workers they should develop
their ability to memorize. "The memory of a person gets better
when a person uses their brain often," he was quoted as saying.

Wow, what a guy, huh?  He could maybe take a little time to get a haircut, new glasses and maybe wear something other than pantsuits.  Ya think?

  1. Fascinating. I also believed it until the 11 holes in one comment. Even I could only get 9 on my first round. Geez, what a liar.
