The North Korean government loves to call itself a socialist state, but no one can miss out on the evident similarities that it has with dictatorship. Leaders such as Kim Jong-Il and Kim Jong-Un have led everyone to believe that the nation doesn’t believe in equal rights at all. However, if you go through the absolutely hilarious and craziest things that these North Korean leaders have come up with, your inquisitiveness about the country would know no bounds. Both bizarre and highly alarming, here are some of the things that these leaders have claimed.
North Korea Believes It Can Cure AIDS And Cancer
In an obvious effort to boost the nation’s progress made in the field of science, the North Korean state media claimed that their researchers have come up with a new kind of a miracle drug in 2016. It is believed to be manufactured from rare earth elements and is capable enough to eliminate cancer, cure AIDS, and eradicate the Ebola virus. Wow! That’s interesting! Who wouldn’t want to lay their hands on such precious stuff? But as North Korean scientists have refused to share the name of the ingredients that are used to produce the drug, you can consider yourselves unlucky! Wink.
North Korean Leaders Prefer Not To Use The Toilet
Can you believe that? This is perhaps one of the most outrageous claims you might have ever heard. It has been a calculated move from the state media to structure up a certain image of the Supreme Leaders. The weirdest and the quirkiest claim that Kim II-Sung and Kim Jong-Il have never cleared their bowels can leave you in splits! Do you think this has been purposely created to portray the national leaders as supernatural and godly? Otherwise, how can people around them beat the smell?
Kim Jong-Un Had The Steering Wheel In His Hands At The Age Of Three
You might have gotten to know from 2015 reports about a brand new curriculum that forced teachers to incorporate an updated biography about Kim Jong-Un. As per the biography, Kim Jong-Un could drive as soon as he had turned three! Not only that, he had been winning yacht races at the age of nine and had extreme musical skills from a pretty young age! Woah! Is there even a single truth in his biography?
North Korea Claims To Have Invented The Hamburger In 2000
If North Korea has kept itself isolated from the outside world, it implies that you won’t get foreign food here. But, you can surely gorge on a hamburger that Kim Jong-Il had introduced back in 2000. Famous as the ‘double bread with meat’, its creation was attributed to the Supreme Leader. So chefs and hamburger enthusiasts, what say you?
North Korean Researchers Claim To Have Found Unicorns
The Korean Central News Agency revealed in 2012 about how researchers have been successful in discovering a unicorn lair inside North Korean territory. This lair is supposed to have belonged to a unicorn which was ridden by King Tongmyong, an ancient Asian leader. A team of archaeologists from the esteemed Academy of Social Sciences at the History Institute was primarily responsible for the discovery. The dwelling place of these fabled unicorns was at a stone’s throw distance from a sacred temple in the capital city of Pyongyang. Hmm, quite intriguing!
You Will Never Find A Disabled Person In North Korea
It has been claimed by the North Korean government that the country doesn’t have a single disabled citizen. But, as per rumors that have been doing the rounds, the leaders are believed to dispose of such people. Inside sources have revealed that disabled babies are taken away by the hospital staff and discarded somewhere unknown. Men affected with dwarfism are castrated and compelled to live in a village somewhere far off. That’s cruel! Clearly, the North Korean authority knows how to hide or distort the reality. Socialism anyone?
Such claims can drive anyone crazy, and it’s tough for an individual to maintain his or her sanity after coming across such ridiculous, not to mention disturbing, stuff. It’s normal for people to get confused whether to laugh or cry under such circumstances. Funny is an understatement, to be honest. So are you going to North Korea anytime soon?
