Below is another collection of pictures devoted to different issues and united under the same heading. Enjoy!
A. Bunka here. What island is that where Gorby keeps his money? The film at the end, very funny, reminds me of the silent era…
Look, Archy, you’re first! “Those were the daaaays..”

“Gee, the old LaSalle ran great.”
You were the champ!

Who is F Bunka then?
I use to have something like that analog calculator when I was a child. I loved that thing and then one day it disappeared. I believe it was red and gold colored metal and the stylus had a two prong holder for it on the side.
Arithmometer? Great device, one of my friends discovered similar one somewhere in his grandfather’s house. Great piece of engineering work. Visit also this webpage: http://www.taswegian.com/MOSCOW/soviet.html – museum of Soviet calculators, especially the “Mechanical Monster” section
Not as exciting compare to people who lay on the train track with train running over them.
If I were train driver, I’d stop and beat the &@#* out of Bazooka Boy.
We owe Leonardo of Pisa and his “Liber Abaci” (1202) for bringing math “to the masses.”
After looking at that train restroom, I almost threw up.
That also double as the kitchen
“First” mechanical calculator? Umm, I think the Chinese actually invented one a few thousand years ago- the abacus!
Sorry but I dont see any mechanics if I look at my abacus. And the abacus isnt a chinese invention, if you mean by chinese the normal han chinese. Although the inventation place is near to china.
These railway tickets with all the useless numbers and codes are not the worst thing in Ukrainian railways. The worst thing is that if you are not a russian speaker, it’s virtual impossible to get such a ticket because NOBODY knows any foreign language and nobody has desire to help you. Also, you need to show you passport in order to buy a ticket (probably a remain from soviet rules) which they won’t easily accept because they can’t read your name in latin letters. From own experience.
