R.I.P., Turkmenbashi

The most insane, all-powerful world leader not named Kim Jong-Il died suddenly this morning. Read up on his bizarre cult of personality, naming cities, airports, and even months after himself.

Update: Wikipedia says, about his mandatory-reading book Ruhnama,
An enormous mechanical replica of the book is located in the capital; every night at 8:00PM it opens and passages are recited with accompanying video.
You can read the book for yourself in English here.

If you're going to post blog spam, shouldn't you direct me toward something you're selling?
