    King Stout III is recovering from heart surgery that took place on April 12. (Kim Jong Un) As an obese heavy smoker with a bad haircut, I would not put his longevity as great.

    Don't google coconut cream pie recipes. Not actually a good cuisine topic.

    Yes, he is in the news tonight. I suspect he is less healthy than the NK press says.

    Then again North Korea has had this weird tendency that, if you think they're alive, they're dead; if you think they're dead, they're alive, for the last few years.

    A city the size of Belgium, built from scratch in the desert? How would that work even if there weren't people living there?

    They are going to build it from scratch and make it cosmopolitan and less restrictive than other Saudi cities. Big plans. Ambitious plans. The results will probably be much smaller.

    I'd say this is super-villain stuff, but villains usually have grander ambitions than "steal tourist dollars from Egypt".

    That would be hard to do without the Pyramids or Abu Simbul.
