Perelman, “the maths genius living in property”, today officially refused Field’s medal

We already have mentioned the strange behavior of Gregory Perelman. Today the Fields medal congress has started in Madrid, and their press service officially declared that Perelman refuses to accept his Field’s medal, an award that’s being considered as important among mathematicians as  Nobel prize  among other scientists.  It is not known why Nobel chose not to establish a prize in Mathematics, although there are several
theories about the lack of one, nevertheless the  history of the Fields Medal begins in the Committee of the International Congress set up by the University of Toronto in November of 1923, with the purpose of organizing the 1924 Congress to be held in Toronto. This decision of the bright mathematician confuses the Field’s medal commission. They actually now don’t know to whom they can award the prize.

Russian road patrol policeman gets sodomized (video)

Short amateur feature clip depicting the humiliation on a road patrol police guy. In Russia road patrols are very easy to bribe, a person might never in his all life
pay the road tickets in the bank - all the "situations" are resolved right on site with the help of a few bills. Probably this is a reason for such videos.

Bentley in snow

People in Russia who became rich very fast ready to spend hundreds of thousands dollars on the top luxury cars. Moscow is the most populated with expensive cars city in Europe. You can meet them practically on every corner of Moscow downtown. Visitors from Europe say that Moscow is the only city in Europe where you can meet two or three cars worth of more than $200k each at once in one street or standing at one
traffic light. Probably it reminds Arabian countries, where sheikhs love expensive cars also. One difference is that in Moscow the most expensive cars in the world are surrounded by a huge Russia itself, where the average salary of a school teacher is around $1200 a year. That's not a typo, an average school teacher in countryside gets paid not more than $100-$150 per month.

First Russian Laptop

This is first Russian laptop, made under the brand "Elektronika". The production started in 1991 and lasted not very long due to the high price of the device - none of the common people could afford themselves such
devices. The price for the computer was around $6000, that equals 25,000 roubles according to that time's exchange rate, when the average salary across the country was 500 roubles (50 times less!).

How to buy alcohol after 9pm and on Sundays?

different bars are allowed to sell alcohol and you can drink to death there. But the prices in bars often much higher than in shops, and there might be a lot of reasons why you don't want to drink in the bar.

3 Police in action

Police in action

 An awful video, made with cellular phone cam.  Russian police patrol takes  a guy from a street, leads him to a quite place and then one policeman punches him in a kidney, demonstrating the techniques he was told in a Police school. The man can’t walk after he was punched, he makes a few
steps and falls down. Here is the transcript of voice-over: - Spread your legs! - Now smile! “So how it was? I didn’t punch too strong” - And now say “I love Police!”  - Yeah tell, if you won’t tell I’ll beat you more! - Say “I love Police!”
