What did an ordinary Soviet living room look like back in the 70s? The living room belonging to some granny. One Russian girl did a great job to show you how it looked. Her miniature project, made in 1:12 scale, is very impressive. The
author used foam board, balsa, veneer, adhesive tape, LEDs, natural silk, bamboo, glass, mirrors, acrylic paints, wire, leather, various caps and cans... And only the sewing machine was store-bought. The details are awesome!
Lake Baikal is the biggest lake in the world by volume, and there are recreational train trips going around it. Some prefer to go around by foot, it said to take 3 to 5 days to complete the picturesque route, but some, like Evgeny prefer to take a train ride. It's a much faster and easier way to enjoy all the landmarks around the Lake and you can get everything done in a day. They
deliberately make several stops so people can walk around and enjoy the scenery, the local meals being cooked by the babushkas, etc. The trip is called a roundtrip on purpose - the route makes a circle around the lake (or something more like a stretched oval around it). So the first stop is the last stop. Let's follow Evgeny and see some things he has seen and photographed:
If you have the number 666 on your car's number plate, be ready to face religious activists that will use spray paint to ruin your plate, your car and your day. At least this is what happened in Moscow a few days ago. It's interesting that they didn't just spray paint on the
number plate but also deliberately painted out the "KIA" logo of the car, like they have something against this word too. Also it seems that the number 777 is not what they like, either. Also the paint color choice was some tint of gold or bronze.
In Belarus they also have parades. Pavel, photographer, has visited the event to see the army of this country on parade. "This is murder!", says Pavel, "a murder of the pavement of our city! Yes, we have a glorious past but why should
we destroy roads paved with our tax money with those tanks?" Looks like this what people think about their parade. At least Pavel does. But here are some photos he took, so what does the Belarus army have in store?
Ok, I haven't seen anything like this before. Please meet a 1:1 wooden motorcycle replica with intricate detailing, all made from wood, all real life sized. As the source reports, a guy called Yury decided to make something
unusual as the new year (2014) dawned in January. He has chosen a Soviet IZH-49 motorbike as a target to apply his wood crafting skills. So this is what he did. Tires, exhaust pipe, everything from wood.
