50 Pimp Up Your Tank

Pimp Up Your Tank

This vehicle was made from Russian “BRDM”, if to translate literally it is “Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle”, armored scout car made in Russia. There were plenty of such in Arabic countries like Iraq or Iran or Syria also. But this is not a regular military vehicle. It was bought by a Moscow entrepreneur and was pimped up heavily. First of all it is an amphibian vehicle – it can both move by roads and swim by rivers or lakes. It is powered with V8 5.5 diesel engine  to carry its multi ton body across the Russian roads. It has four general wheels  but there are four more, hidden under its bottom, if somebody comes to a road like this he
can push a button and use four additional wheels to make his road. It has of course a multi speaker sound system, GPS navigation, TV, DVD and a periscope to see clearly what’s going on when you are swimming across the nearest lake. Also there is a sonar mounted with which the car owner can monitor the water under his so to say car. Night vision system is there too. The car is fully registred in road inspection so the owner can drive across the normal roads, and then go to the lake for some fishing or water skiing, after that at night he can come to Moscow casino without visiting home.

35 Postal Trick

Postal Trick

Many USA ecommerce shops don’t send their goods to Russia or to the countries of the Ex-USSR. Some shops send but delivery costs differ greatly from the homeland ones, they are usually much bigger. So what did some Russians invented? They got a way to fool the delivery. It’s no secret that many bigger shops use electronic systems processing orders. So in order to see if this address is in USA or Canada it uses ZIP code, state or province name  and words “USA” or “CANADA”. So what was possible to do is to put totally Russian address in the order delivery form,
like: Moscow, Lenin St. 20, Russia in the address fields, usually there is a plenty of space to enter long things like this, and in the field country they put Canada in the field ZIP code – Canadian zip code. What happens next? The parcel travels to Canada, to the area to which the specified ZIP code belongs and there postal workers just see it’s not a Canadian address but Russian. They consider it to be some sort of mistake and forward it further, to Russia. Here is a sample parcel that a guy in Russia got this way:
