Party in Iran

After the latest events in Iran, their elections and all this hype with their nuclear program one Russian blogger decided to go there to check how the things are on place. Iranians always were of positive opinion of Russia and Russians so the trips there are not considered dangerous or unwanted for Russian people. He spent some time there and told later in his blog that what he has seen there is a society of dual standards. From one side there is a dictatorship of Islamic revolution guards who prohibit many of the Western fun activities, such as drinking or public Western parties etc, like ladies can't go outside without hijab or in short skirt, alcohol is
forbidden, you can be executed for being gay, also there is an Internet censorship going on, so he couldn't update his blog while being there. But all this things are just a format state of society. When the doors closed people change their cloths to Western and make big parties with lots of drinks, women, satellite TV. Tech genius sell and install the internet un-blocking devices that can get around the censorship means and let you surf freely. He has made some shots on one of such parties. You could never thinkg those shots were made in Iran, it looks like just common party of the West.

The Ivory Chess

In Russia chess is a very popular game, almost every schoolboy used to know how to play chess since Soviet times when the Russian chess grandmasters like Karpov or Kasparov were rocking the world chess scene. Since then many years has already passed but still it's considered a must to have a
chess playing set at home. The better looking the board is the better it is, some lucky ones get hand made sets, carved from wood or ivory coast. Here are works of just one author, mainly from ivory, some of the might look nsfw, but those are just chess pieces.

20 Exhaust Pipe Smoking

Exhaust Pipe Smoking

People struggle with smoking worldwide. Sometimes they use as argument to ban public smoking is that if not children see and getting a bad behaviroal example from the smoker. Well, and what about the dogs? Seems that in Russia dogs are smarter than average dogs elsewhere. Remember the tube travelling dogs of Moscow? Now another strange habbit is being seen
across Russia. Dogs try to imitate smoking, but still they are dogs so they don't understand that not all that has smoke can be smoked, so sometimes they smoke... exhaust pipes, as you can see on this footage. Of course it's deadly bad for them, but once tried the dog can't stop getting back to this habbit because it feels high.
