    Not really, just wanted an excuse to post this:

    "10. Kijong-Dong is a city built in the 1950s by Kim's father, set on the border as an example to South Korea of their superiority. No one lives there, but every effort was made to make it function like an actual city. The buildings have no glass in the windows and no rooms: They are just concrete shells. It's also home to the world's largest flagpole."

    This is from Gawker's list here: http://gawker.com/5869210/giant-rabbits-and-double-rainbows-the-10-most-insane-delusions-of-kim-jong+il

    I'm wondering if our resident Socialist Hunterâ„¢ from Ward 7 York West is aware of this.

    Apparently the North Korean flagpole has been topped (from the wikipedia entry on Kijong-Dong at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kijŏng-dong):

    I think we can beat Tajikistan.

    There's a certain family resemblance.
