9 Subway Incindent

Subway Incindent

A while ago there was a story about one Moscow city street advertisement agency. What made them famous? Their attempt to install a new street ad stand, so they had to hammer in a concrete pile into ground. They started doing this and suddenly the pile came down through ground layer and disappeared somewhere down there. Yes, they were shocked but they had a task to accomplish so they started to smash in another pile – it
also broke in through the ground. Now they got really puzzled. So where have their piles gone? They gone right into a subway train, nailed a full of people subway train moving at 40mph (70kmh) down to the ground – right in the middle of the working day. They got extremely lucky that the subway car in which they hammered in a pile was almost empty and nobody got seriously injured.

Russian Gazprom Building

"Gazprom" is the biggest Russian corporation, worth over $200 billion, translated as "Gas Production". It serves gas and oil to the whole Europe, people in Russia often make jokes that Gazprom keeps Russia just like a servant for itself, and if there would be some need for "Gazprom" to join Europe to Russian Federation it would be done next day without any problems because all the Europe depends on Russian gas. Also some analytics say that Putin after his
presidency ends would head Gazprom. So here are the projects of Gazprom main corporate building in St. Petersburg (they have already a complex in Moscow). People of St. Petersburg demand to stop this projects in coming to life because they want to preserve "cultural and architectural unity of the city". But if Gazprom wants something nobody can say something to it. Look what they going to build in St. Petersburg:

Kazakhstan at 70s

It has been said on some news sites today that people of the village named Gold located in Romania (which is 2000 away from Kazahstan and in Europe) try to sue "Borat" movie creators in court of New York. They claim that they were told it's a just a documentary about poverty in Romania, and were shocked when they found themselves in a comedy movie about... Kazakhstan. I don't know how big are their odds to win the case, but here are
the photos of Kazakhstan 30 years ago, from Soviet archives at Soviet Museum. Soviet chronicles of course tried to tape mostly the merits leaving behind all the poverty etc. Still Kazakhstan even at that time had industry and was famous for its coal mining and cotton production. Also I've read on different websites that Borat is speaking Hebrew to his fellow villagers in the movie trailer.

Soviet Robots

This is an authentic photo from official Soviet Russia archives. Can it be so that Soviet Russian goverment concealed their plans of replacing Russian people with human like robots or androids? It could be a great step forward towards Soviet ideals - an average robot
is much more convinient for a Soviet goverment than an average Soviet citizen. According to the photo first species of those robots were treated with all honours, I wonder why they closed the project? Was it a lack of budget?
