We've already had a thread about strange buildings from Soviet era. Today we've got another piece of strange architecture, now from modern Russia. That's a building made in the form of giant bar code, the same bar code we
see on all the goods in a supermarket. It seems to be an office building made of modules. It's from St. Petersburg, Russia, and was submitted by Jolq, would somebody be able to read the barcode?
The jokes about blondes are simply international. I don't think that the colour of the hair changes something in a person's behavior, and this one could be also a joke but it’s real. A blonde in St. Petersburg ran out of fuel, so she
decided to fuel the car herself with a jerrican she had in her trunk. She took it out, then grabbed a funnel, so she was thinking she was doing everything right. The only think she forgot is to put out her cigarette.
On Saturday November 4th, 2006 there was some civil disorder in centre of Moscow. This day is some sort of Russia holiday devoted to some historical events of liberation of Russia from Polish and Swedish occupation back in medieval times. So there were group of people who wanted to express their opinion about liberation of Russia nowadays from ethnic groups they consider to be
enemies now occupying Russia. Moscow authorities banned this events so everybody expressing his attitude on Saturday in the centre of Moscow were arrested. You can see some photos from this event. People were taken from streets. Some witnesses say that anybody could be caught even without participating in expressing opinion action.
We had some photos from Moscow subway before, now there is a small video of what might happen when you travel to Russia. The guys on video first were just standing and looking around to find somebody to fight with. Then they spotted two guys sitting on the other side of the wagon, they approach to them and start the fight without any reason, just to make a cool video. What amazes me is the behavior of the people standing around. You can
clearly see how in the beginning of the fight some people move away from this dangerous spot and some move closer – trying to stop the fight. It seems that most of people are afraid of such things happening right before them because they can also got harmed by this, but some are ready to help and to stop the violence – come from the distant part of the wagon. A clear picture of how the society works.
