Leisure Time of Soviet People

Posted on September 16, 2010 by team


Let us remember today how people of the Soviet Russia used to rest.

    The chess picture; one guy in the center of the tables, is he taking on all players on the other side? That’s about 26 games at once.

      Yep, some people do it. Amazing. And, they’re much faster than the guys sitting down. They get to sit and think about their moves, where he generally just walks around rather quickly making moves.

        That’s phenomenal, I really do admire a gift like that. I can’t even remember to zip myself up after a bathroom trip let alone take on 26 other things at once. Probably why no ones wants to play chess with me.

          It’s sort of a parlor trick. You use the responses of one player to be your move against the next one, essentially playing them against each other.

          It requires a little chess skill, but nothing like being a grandmaster.

      Yes, the interesting question is, who is he? And where did the photo come from?

    A Socialist society.

    1) Looks very restful, when you weren’t getting rounded up to be sent to a Gulag.

    2) I wonder how many of these people would be dead by 1943. A lot, I’d guess.

    3) In ze Soviet Russia, break takes YOU!

    On September 17 1939 the treacherous Soviets ruthlessly attacked Poland, already under attack by Germans. Russians signed a pact with Germans to cut Poland in half and share the loot. Poland was once again betrayed and attacked by Soviet Russia. What followed was 50+ years of effective occupation by Russians in terms of communist government and presence of foreign army in the territory of Poland. May the memory of this hideous deed never be forgotten, in spite of continued attempts by Russians to rewrite history. Long live Poland!

    I was born into the wrong country at the wrong time

    Sad that not many years later the people in the pics would be facing the worst war anyone has ever experienced…
