186 An Abandoned City

An Abandoned City

Here is a little photo-session of an abandoned city. When the Soviet Union collapsed, government didn’t have much funds to support some small cities around strategically import objects. People of these cities were left all by themselves. Nobody could support them because any communication with this places terminated after the army decided that they now don’t have money to support those objects. People had to leave their places and move. Some were lucky to find their place under a sun of the Army of new Russian Federation, some less
fortunate had to leave such places without any hope to find a new home, just because the shops stopped working, water stopped coming out of the facet and nobody cared about them any more. It has been said that even president Putin was thinking to retire from KGB in 1990 and go to work as a taxi driver. Many people are now probably express great sorrow that he changed his mind at that time. Ok, so here are the photos: Just imagine how magnificient those buildings were before abandoned.

8 Russian Urine Is Being Imported by USA Citizens

Russian Urine Is Being Imported by USA Citizens

This website come to my attention recently due to the strange production it is offering. The first thing that you can see on the site is a massive slogan “Russian Urine Against Doctor’s Scalpel”, in Russian this sounds rhymed. So what does sell the site with such a slogan? It sells urine, it exports Russian urine mainly to the USA, who can’t for some reason pay a visit to their clinic by person, can order their “unique” products online. They claim that they discovered some healing power in Russian urine, and that their discoveries were backed by hundreds of years of traditionalists using the urine for healing purposes. They say that urine comes from the most important part of a human, from the “life giving part of the human body”. There are a few types of the product that are being sold on this website. Their names are astonishing: “The Sea Breeze”, “Hunter’s brew”, “Not Filtered, Original”, they differ
in taste and in pharmacological characteristics. Also they sell a big bottles for gathering the urine, made of special plastics that automatically makes the urine gathered in the bottle ready to use, and some more sophisticated apparatus called “The Separator”, for brewing special sorts of urine at home from your own raw source. They say that device was awarded at UNESCO contest of innovations, and was developed by Russian Sechenov Institute. There is also an appeal for the donors who can submit their urine material for their institure as a source for the end products. They say all the donors are being tested heavily and interviewed. You want my opinion? That's disgusting. Links: The original "Russian Urine Production" website The translated version, by automatic web translator. And here is a big article from Nexus magazine on the subject

Japan Cars, Serve Chilled

Have you ever owned a Japan car? I had a few, and after seeing at those pictures I wonder if my car also looked like this when it was travelling across the ocean to the dealer. These are actual photos of Japan cars arriving from their travel from Japan to a port of delievery. The reason is that winters
in Japan is that when a ship leaves a port in Japan in winter the temperatures are pretty low, and together with the wind and plenty of waves, especially during storms, cars that are on the upper decks of the ships carrying them are being turned in something like this.

14 Music video of Kazakhstan

Music video of Kazakhstan

After watching this video it is more easy to understand what was the Soviet Union. Different nations were united under one flag and one goal - achieving of the world reign of communism. All those nations studied Russian in school as the main language, in fact all the lesssons were in Russian only. All the govermental system was the same everywhere, in European regions where people look and live like in Western countries and in distant Eastern and Southern regions where people are got used to live like in Afghanistan or Turkey.
But this was all a one country with one people and one language and one capital - Moscow city. This video shows how Western culture can penetrate some not Western by geolocation regions of Russia. Actually this is Kazakhstan already, but former it was a part of USSR, and in modern Russian Federation there are some other regions looking like this. And by the way this video is 100% serious and was used for TV broadcasting across that region. I hope you enjoyed the video
