You have an amazing collection of handbags. Nearly every brand–none of them hardly used at all. So many colors, textures and materials–from formal to informal and everything in between! It must’ve taken you a decade to pull it together.

Kim Jong-un loves basketball and went to school in Switzerland.  Not only that, his mother’s an opera singer, he’s building the Masik Pass Ski Resort, and he enjoys riding roller coasters and watching 4D movies  at Rungna People’s Amusement Park.

Oh, one other thing, he’s also a ruthless dictator who runs a totalitarian state, purges political rivals, and executes them.  Most recently, his Uncle Chang Song-thaek, AKA “Despicable Human Scum.”
