19 Road Rafting

Road Rafting

Just a few kilometers from Moscow city where people by cars worth of $1 million life is totally different. Some people living in Moscow may even not know how different it is, but it’s real and it’s there. On this photo just a small example of what happens in rural parts of Russia. Many villages are left by young people who move
to cities in a search of jobs and entertainment, some villages are populated with old people. Here is the glimpse of funeral – an old lady goes on some sort of wooden raft together with a coffin towed by a tractor, though there are some kids so not every young pair moved away from this village.

Kiev Tram Jam

We have seen a 24 hour traffic jam in Moscow a few days ago. This is something different - tens of trams a stuck in Kiev in the middle of the day, so all
the tram traffic was paralyzed. Many people advocate public transportation as a no-traffic-jam alternative. This time it's of no alternative.

Russian UFO House

Now here is another piece of Russian self made rural piece of architecture. This is a building in a form of a flying saucer, painted in Russian old style police car – white and blue. Inside one can see traditional Russian wooden
decoration and opposing it in style round windows and a… firewood furnace. It is not some highly-sophisticated zero gravity UFO engine but at least passengers won't be freezing during long Russian winters.

They have built a big catapult or trebuchet in the middle of common Russian village, right on the snowy field, and… shot fireballs with it. They say that a price of each shot was around $120 and nobody was hurt.

Bar Code Building

We've already had a thread about strange buildings from Soviet era. Today we've got another piece of strange architecture, now from modern Russia. That's a building made in the form of giant bar code, the same bar code we
see on all the goods in a supermarket. It seems to be an office building made of modules. It's from St. Petersburg, Russia, and was submitted by Jolq, would somebody be able to read the barcode?

Russian TV Talk Show

Russian TV Show - video powered by Metacafe This is an except from Russian TV Show. Some think it's fake, I also think it looks more faked than real. But it's
being broadcasted for all 140 million population of Russia without any statement that it's real so most of TV viewers thought such things are real.

31 Cigarettes and Fuel

Cigarettes and Fuel

The jokes about blondes are simply international. I don't think that the colour of the hair changes something in a person's behavior, and this one could be also a joke but it’s real. A blonde in St. Petersburg ran out of fuel, so she
decided to fuel the car herself with a jerrican she had in her trunk. She took it out, then grabbed a funnel, so she was thinking she was doing everything right. The only think she forgot is to put out her cigarette.
