12 Moscow Suicidal Club

Moscow Suicidal Club

We have shown a lot of their photos at English Russia. They call themselves climbers, but in fact they are potential suicides. Fear of heights does not exist for them, they do not even know any instincts of self-preservation. Joking with death is just their favorite game. For example, climbing old rusty stairs on a 300
meters top without a safety net or running on the edge of a roof of a 40 storey building. They do it not for any sporting interest or records, they simply like to have fun together in extreme conditions. There are 200 of them in Moscow today. But their number is growing. Most of them are students.

7 Swim Like a Dolphin

Swim Like a Dolphin

"Kolkhuri" is an unusual method of swimming that once interested a citizen of Sevastopol, Oleg Sofyanik. Now he swims with his hands and legs tied with elastic bandage. Those who invented such "kolkhuri" are
sure that a man practising it becomes hardy, brave and is not afraid of death. Oleg decided to swim 400 meters (1312 ft) in the "kolkhuri" style. He had been training for three weeks to do it.

It is hard to explain what happens on this video and why the guy is training like this. We can only guess. The first thing that comes to
mind is that he's a real clubber. But maybe he knows a super secret exercise system? We hope he didn't hurt himself..

17 Hunting Some Phesants For Dinner

Hunting Some Phesants For Dinner

Hunting used to be essential for life in the past as it saved people from hunger and cold. Today it is mainly used for entertainment. A hunting ground next to Atyrau, Kazakhstan that was opened last spring offers anyone to become a hunter. Hunting has never been that easy. It rather looks like a shooting range,
but instead of plastic rabbits you get live phesants grown specially at a farm. When a client arrives a phesant is let into the open space fenced from both sides where the bird even has no trees to sit on. The scared birds rush away from a next group of the armed visitors with dogs.
