What a ferry line

Estonia is a small country nearby St. Petersburg. It was a part of Soviet Union before, but after 1990 this is an independent state. Ok, nevertheless a lot of people there are speaking Russian and there are some things happening there that might be of our interest. There are a lot of islands in
Estonia, mainly the islands are in Baltic sea. On these photos one can see a process of making a life on an island more comfortable. Somebody wanted to have a Lexus car cruising from one end of his island to another. So he rented a fishers boat to move the car to an island.

Gregory Perelman and Bin Laden screenshot

This a screenshot of the article about Gregory Perelman, the mathematician who refused million dollar prize  and Fields medal, by which he was awarded for Poincare conjecture solution, one of the hardest mathematical tasks of 20th century. And now he cannot be reached by any media for an interview or photo. In related posts down at this page you can see a link to an article how Russian TV media number one took his old photo and changed his appearance
(his suit and tie) to present it before hundred million audience in night news programm. And here is a screenshot of Gregory Perelman article in Yahoo, and Bin Laden, the terrorist number one photo occasionally was placed by banner rotating system of Yahoo on the same page. You can call it artificial intellect but they really look alike, and not only in the terms of appearance, but both cannot be found for a simple interview.

Photos made in Moscow subway

If you ever think about travel to Russia and visit Moscow, you might like visit Moscow subway. It's definetely worth looking. First of all architecture of Moscow subway is astonishing, I think I'll make a separate post about architecture of Moscow subway, because each stop, each station is so nice. During Soviet era
amounts worth of millions dollars were invested in the construction of Moscow subway. Each station is like museum, with huge patchworks occupying some walls, high ceilings and antique type chandeliers. And in those magnificent interriors nowadays you can meet people that look like really weird.

Unknown creature was found by soldiers

This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan, it's the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5000 miles to East from Moscow (Russia is huge). People don't know who is it. According to the bones and teeth - it is not a fish. According to
its skeleton - it's not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur. It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away.

4 First Channel Russia photoshopped Perelman photo

First Channel Russia photoshopped Perelman photo

In modern Russia there are around 20-30 TV channels, but the most important to any Russian middle aged person is “Channel 1” or “The First Channel”. This channel has the most wide coverage area and is being watched regularly by the majority of the population in Russia. I think that every citizen of Russia who owns TV-set watches “Channel 1” from time to time. So a few days ago there was a “Fields Medal” event, and Russian genius, Dr. Gregory Perelman, the bright mathematician who solved the “Poincare Conjecture” refused his award. It’s a well known story now, being discussed a lot. What is interesting – Mr. Perelman has left St. Petersburg where  he lived and worked, and nobody knows where is he. And even the national media number one, “The First
Channel” could not find him for an interview. They had to have him in the night news regarding his unclaimed Fields Medal and another 1 million dollar prize – but nobody managed to find him. So they decided to take a picture of the professor from the source known for anybody now, from Internet. They dug a little and got Associated Press image that was shown on different other medias. But editors in “Channel 1” decided that the exterior of the genius is not cool, they couldn’t imagine they would broadcast somebody with a brilliant mind and not wearing a tie and a suit. That are the traces of the Soviet thinking, for many years people were kept very strict and nothing changed now. Look what they have done:
110 ATM mistake lead to $700,000,000 credited to bank account

ATM mistake lead to $700,000,000 credited to bank account

This story happened a few days ago in Ekaterinburg city, in Ural region in Russia. One man decided to add some money to his bank account via ATM. He went to the nearest one and put 2,000 roubles (around $74). The ATM took the money and returned him a slip. Here is the
photo of that slip: The amount on the slip was 2,006,699,00 RUR (around $7,430,000). He was astonished, he has got another slip – and still the amount was the same. So he decided to go the bank and tell them about the mistake ATM made.
