That's neat.

One unconfirmed report.

However if #2 Insane did have a medical problem, it is lucky that he is also
the countries foremost medical expert and he performed the surgery himself,
outside, on top of a sacred hill, in a tent, in a thunderstorm, in half the time of the previous record.

Both South Korea and China deny this. The rumours apparently began on a N. Korean dissident web site. Picked up in the US and off you go!

A social media report on Weibo from the Vice-Director of a HK Satellite TV channel who claims to be the niece of a Chinese government official.

I think lots of people will buy that. I'll be waiting for something more official though

It took them a couple of days to admit his daddy was dead. By all accounts the younger sister is vicious, Young Fat Wun’s wife and children might want to skip town quickly if he has kicked the bucket.

Happened after pissing Trump off. How many conspiracy minded nutters, I mean folks are chalking it up to the CIA?

Too much good food and not enough time on the treadmill would be my guess if this is true.

His BMI is / was around 45. He had gout in his early thirties, drank like a fish, ate like a pig and smoked like a chimney. I agree.

Does it matter? After a period of ritual weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth they will be welcoming yet another member of the clan as the latest dear leader. Anybody better informed than I am know who the next candidate is?

Fat Un is kinda young.
There may not be a succession sorted out yet.
That, (if he is deaders), could mean some internal upheaval.

I think internal upheaval is inevitable when the Phat Un dies, be it now or 20 years from now. He's been very Stalin like in his elimination of anyone and everyone he saw as a threat to is power.
This reminds me a bit of when Khrushchev was deposed in 1964. I was in 4th grade at the time - and as naive 4th graders we all thought this was a good thing. It took our teacher to explain to us that this could well be worse - Khrushchev was a known quantity - now we had uncertainty. Maybe better, maybe worse, maybe little change - only time would tell.

If you believe the media, his sister may be next in the line of succession.

Traditionally in China, Korea, Japan, etc., the death of the Emperor was kept secret for several months, and only when political upheaval was guaranteed to be out of the picture was the death officially announced. Nothing new here from that perspective.

The last few news tidbits I've seen remain of the "not quite sure yet" sort.
Will check back in 24 hours.

Just a thought: sometimes, it takes longer to recover from a heart procedure than others.
