I knew that there happen to be some factories in countries like India or China which make fake soft drinks, I knew that there are in Russia such factories also, I knew that they ship their ready made production to
shops and sell like legit one, but what was a surprise for me is when a lady makes fake mineral water (puts on labels) right in the middle of the big shopping mall in Ukraine (former USSR). Take a look:
A funny video, taken in a Russian university during a maths class. A guy starts to act crazy, the professor lady stands stunned, can’t say anything, other students are amazed. This
reminded me on a bright Russian mathematician, Gregory Perelman, and his also not so common behavior, and I wondered if he was also making such performances while studying maths?
The 1st of September is a holiday for students. The day when they make one more step to their professional top by studying. And by working for some of them. All the time students were considered as the poorest social group. But years go
by and now we can see more and more working students that sometimes seem to be studying workers. In St.-Petersburg there are a lot of ways to earn and places to work. Let’s see the most acceptable for students.
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
Just a few crazy monuments from Russian streets. What do you see here? Look at her smile,
