A 1540 square feet (144 square meters) model of Moscow is now being exhibited in one of Moscow exhibitions. This model has been built in 1988 and is being used for Moscow planing. Each house is a separate piece and from time to time is needed to be cleaned and
polished in order to look nice. If the house being reconstructed in Moscow the same new model house appears on this epic model, same thing happens when new house is being built in Russian capital. The scale of the model is 1 to 500.
In Russia they sell monopoly game devoted to Jesus and 10 commandments. I am not sure if it is Russian invention, or Western world inspired one, but seems it is. They have made this game in monopoly style dice-throwing ahead-going bonus getting game. Four children can compete by throwing a dice and trying not to be caught in the trap of one of the deadly sins. The winner is the one who has got bought, no not bought, just got all ten commandments cards in one hand, earlier than anyone else. One can trade his collected commandments cards with other to get better commandments set or just to speculate the commandments set if he has plenty for those who has
none. Also according to the rules there are also situations when nobody wins - if the commandments cards are evenly distributed among other and nobody gets all ten everyone in this case considered to be a looser, but the guy with the most of commandments cards is the best player of the set. The one who has traded most of the commandments cards is considered to be the winner or the most righteous guy of the set. It's not quite clear was this game devoted to teach Christianity or to show the flaws of the concept. It is aimed to "children age 8 and older" and is being sold for $2.00 in Russian toy stores.
There are some countries where is racing is banned at all. In such countries they don't have racing teams or competitions simply for that reason. In Soviet Union, the place where a lot of stuff was banned, they still had races held and available for general public to visit the racing and there were sport sections training young men from early age for becoming a race driver. Maybe the biggest difference between Soviet race and race from other world was the absense of commercial stickers on the cars. In Soviet Russia they didn't have any competition since all commerce belonged to the state and all the goods were manufactured by state - so there
was no reason to advertise anything, so racing cars were clear - just with numbers on them, and sometimes the name of the team. Also there were no foreign car makes participating in Soviet Russia races, only the serial cars manufactured in USSR. There were no any V8 or V6 engines, no turbos or compressors - just plain 1.0 liter small passenger cars that were sold to Soviet people colored in some racing colors. Though sometimes the enthusiasts of racing made some tuning by themselves sitting late evenings in their garages to get one or two more horsepower from 60 horsepower engines of Lada.
Russian MIGs are the most famous Russian jets. They were in production since 1959. They become true legend of Russian aviation and were exported to many countries. Sometimes they were used to fight against American or French jet fighters like in Vietnam
or in Israel. Mig factory was always top secret place during the Soviet Times. Such photos like we are having here today were impossible to make or publish at that times. But not now. So this is how Russian legend is being born.
There were some photos of dirty appartments on Internet lately. But this one for sure will beat them all. That was for sure the dirtiest appartment in the world ever. According to the original Russian story behind those pics, there was an old man living in this flat. He had a weird passion to collect different garbage whenever he traveled and bring it home. So as time passed, he got as much garbage that he had to clean up his way thru
the flat when he wanted to go from one room to another or to the entrance door. And then one day the pipe was broke, and he had to call the plumbers. When the plumbers arrived (on photos) they were shocked. They had to waste hours to take just a part of the garbage out so that to enter the flat with their equipment and the garbage from the flat occupied all the loby and area behind the lobby.
