Dear Altman Martin and Doug Mexico and LIST,
 The 1ton stone would have hammered that Nyjazov right
on the head, as he was an especially idiotic example
of the meanwhile rarer species, called " the
megalomaniac dictator"; you forget to mention.
  Nyjazov wrote the incredible rubbish often described
as a pseudo-religious book. The examinee seeking a
diploma, being able to recite the word content word
for word, would have not understood the subject or the
context of Nyjazov`s content.
  In TV shows his people danced around his book (even
though his book was banned in libraries world-wide
and yet he refused to accept the fact that they
rejected the copies that he presented them).
  A golden statue of himself, in the capital, set to
rotate with the sun always shining on his face was
erected. All months were officially re-defined by
him; even one is named after his mother!
  Song contests were frequently arranged with the
requirement that all lyrics were to praise his
splendour, glory and wisdom. Even after some time he
was bored and did not attend the spectacles anymore.
In the capital he started a project, that on each
intersection underpass that was built, in which every
citizen by law had to avoid, to avoid disturbing HIM
just in case his car should pass.

Note: Tired!

  He bleed his people dry, destroyed the medicare,
which is now worse than in Africa, he cited the people
to hard labours, arbitrary imprisonments &
torture were the orders of each day.
  Thank God he wasn't so militaristic like e.g. Kim
Jong-il, but in the row of dictators a Lukashenko is a
choirboy in comparision. That man was mentally insane
unlike George Bush who is just a plain stupid idiot
and a fascist pig.
  I've some hundred grams of his "Sapamurat
Turkmenbashi" H5 left. Small rusty fragments. But I
will store them a few years, as they are still
suffering from the Russian disease and under-rated.
Yep, it has 1ton tkw, but 1ton of that 1ton is a
single stone. No supply anymore.
  Happy those, who bought in time!
