In April, 2011 in the Lower Volga in Astrakhan region a very uncommon event happened. Two men in a boat caught a giant sheatfish with the record weight of 112 kg and the length of 267 cm.

According to witnesses and fishermen themselves, this spectacle was not for nervous people. Of course, the giant had a great strength and it was fighting for its live for a long time.

The company “Concord”, which produces ready meals for social nutrition, supply Russian schools with such dishes.

Meatballs with instant potato mash.

Dubious soup with starch flakes.

Slot machines with sweets were emptied immediately. The reason you can see above.

Japanese technologies reached Russia. Microhotels for tired tourists began to appear in the country. If you do not feel sorry for 500 rubles per hour, you may have a rest in such places.

The first hotel was built in Sheremetyevo airport. Inside it there is a berth, air conditioning, TV, wi-fi and communication facilities. Walls are stabbed with soundproofing material.

    Trying to decide which meal is worse. The Concord school food, or the prisoners’ random metal objects?

  4. Uncledoh says:

    the nails and other “foreing objects” extracted from the bodies shows how people wanted to get out of the “soviet prisons” no matter what… and that is only a very little piece of the iceberg

    Prisoners not getting enough iron in their food?

  6. Jozo says:

    How would eating the metal things help them leave prison? Would it make them die?

  7. Henry says:

    I am Russian, so i can explain why are these nails were swallowed by prisoners. It is all because these times were hard even in jail so people were swallowing all the stuff to get in jails hospital for some time, where he could eat better food rest more (in better conditions) and main thing he was not forced to work while he is there.
