    Default North Korea Threatens to Destroy the World, Decides to Build Ski Resort Instead

    From: http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/27/travel...html?hpt=hp_t3

    (CNN) -- We're guessing this is going to end up on a lot of "world's most dangerous ski runs" lists. But probably for a different reason than any of the other entries.
    North Korea is building a "world class" ski resort on Masik hill in Wonsan with a range of ski runs and a hotel, according to the North Korean state news agency.
    Located in Kangwon Province, Masik hill is 2,520 feet (768 meters) high and typically receives heavy snowfall from early November through early March.

    Construction underway
    A series of photos of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un speaking with his staff in front of the ski resort site was released this week.

    ...

    Kim, who was partly educated in Switzerland, appears to be familiar with ski resort operations.

    ...

    According to the report, Kim also emphasized environmental conservation: "He underlined the need to preserve the ecological environment and prevent pollution while building the skiing ground."

    Who knows he might have elite connections that he wants to invite to the resort, wonder if they'll go?

    Imagine being the guy who used to be friends with him at university or where he was educated or whatever and RSVPing all his attempts to get the gang together again and stuff.

    I be that happens you know, to big old dictators too.

    Does anyone keep track of Jean Claude Van Dame's socialising with dictators and mafia moguls?

    That guy really doesnt mind who he keeps company with.

    I kind of think that at that level is pretty common. The whole academic or idealist debate about capitalism or communism or dictatorship just gives way to blunt end class struggle and hard men at a certain point. You dont get rich or stay rich without going full on Borgias.
