Sometimes people use things in some other way than their direct purpose. This Russian guy proposes to use your old printer as a bread-basket or a box to store some medicines. He removed all the inside parts of the printer, disassembled it,
washed it with soap and then assembled but without inner parts. What he have got became a bread basket in form of printer, he probably puts it with some bread inside on the table when he serves meals at his parties.
Just a few kilometers from Moscow city where people by cars worth of $1 million life is totally different. Some people living in Moscow may even not know how different it is, but it’s real and it’s there. On this photo just a small example of what happens in rural parts of Russia. Many villages are left by young people who move
to cities in a search of jobs and entertainment, some villages are populated with old people. Here is the glimpse of funeral – an old lady goes on some sort of wooden raft together with a coffin towed by a tractor, though there are some kids so not every young pair moved away from this village.
Now here is another piece of Russian self made rural piece of architecture. This is a building in a form of a flying saucer, painted in Russian old style police car – white and blue. Inside one can see traditional Russian wooden
decoration and opposing it in style round windows and a… firewood furnace. It is not some highly-sophisticated zero gravity UFO engine but at least passengers won't be freezing during long Russian winters.
There are different things that are of personal use. There are personal computers, personal music players, personal phones. Transportation means are also became much more personal in 20th century, personal cars, bikes, skiing etc. This Russian man from St. Petersburg got his personal submarine. He built it himself and it is the smallest submarine in Russia, officially registered as a boat
by Russian boat registry and has got it’s own personal name and number. He can make an underwater trip from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Finland and back without stops, and he can go as fast as four knots. The interesting thing that he is based in St. Petersburg which is in Northern part of Russia so the water in the sea is cold all year round.
This video of some Russian guys, have another kind of fun. So, a group of Russians, lead by guy named “German”, dwellers of Russian capital Moscow city, arrived to a common Russian village and started a strange project. What did they do?
They have built a big catapult or trebuchet in the middle of common Russian village, right on the snowy field, and… shot fireballs with it. They say that a price of each shot was around $120 and nobody was hurt.
There was a computer game industry event “Igromir 2006” (Gameworld 2006) in Russia these days. It was a common even of such kind, computer gaming software developers from Russia and other countries presented their latest releases, tried to establish new partnerships etc. People from Moscow were visiting the event freely, and to attract even more all the
developers used costumed heroes on place. Mainly these were young women, you can see here fifty five different characters. Some might say it’s not so bad to be a computer game fan in Russia, and another question wasn’t it cold for those models all day long there, it’s clearly seen that some visitors on photos are in coats.
