Whoa, Kim Jong Un Can Control the Weather

Whoa, Kim Jong Un Can Control the Weather

Just like George W. Bush!

That Kim family in North Korea is so magical. The hermit kingdom claims that dictator Kim Jong Un can control the weather! From USA Today:

After releasing images this weekend of a smiling Kim on top of Mount Paektu, an active volcano on the China and North Korea border, the nation’s state media said the “peerlessly illustrious commander” can control “the nature.”

The evidence for this weather modification?

When Kim “ascended” to the top of the 9,000-foot mountain through thick snow wearing his signature double-breasted winter coat and black leather shoes, a blizzard gave way to “fine weather unprecedented.”

Kim was apparently responsible for this moment of sunshine on what should have been, according to a North Korean government statement, a dreary winter day.

“Mount Paektu presented charming scenery showing magic peaks and dazzling sunshine on its clear and blue waves,” the account of Kim’s journey up the mountain published in North Korea’s official state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said.

According to the account, Kim’s trek also put him in a nuclear frame of mind.

“Imposingly standing on Janggun Peak, the respected Supreme Leader gave a familiar look for a while at the dizzy cliffs and the sea of trees, recalling the emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment and with the indomitable faith and will of Paektu.”

During the run-up to the Summer Olympics in Beijing, I blogged about an article describing how President Hu Jintao was ordering that cloud seeding be used to keep the rains away from the Olympic Village.

The caption I gave the blog post was:
“Hu’ll Stop the Rain”

But can he control his metabolism? Seems like a more useful skill.
