In Russia sometimes they dare to have wild animals like pets. There are no any law regulations on what pets you can keep and what you can't, no PETA, no need to pick up your little friend's poo in special bags. You can walk with your pet anywhere on the street or
public park, no any single "no pets allowed" signs outside. Some call it chaos others call it freedom, you decide yourself. Meanwhile some photos of such wild pet living with people in just a small regular flat in big multistored building.
1) Sergey Brin – Google Sergey Brin, who was born August 21, 1973, in Moscow, became a co-founder of Google, Inc., the world’s largest Internet company, providing users with a technology of search and a number of other important features in on-line world. In 2009 he was ranked as the 26th richest person in the world by
Forbes. He immigrated to the United States in his childhood, when he was just 6, and when Sergey grew up, he began to study mathematics, following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps. First, Brin got a diploma of the University of Maryland, and then he became Ph.D in computer science at Stanford.
There is a piece of what was before a glorious Russian shuttle "Buran", staying in front of one of the Moscow hospitals. It hasn't been placed there as a monument or something. People who know its history tell that once when the Soviet Union collapsed they sold much of high-technology costly hardware for just some pennies to people who didn't even know what to do with all this.
For example, this head module of Buran shuttle in some mysterious way appeared in ownership of the hospital. They couldn't find a better use for it to make a pressure chamber. Then they found out that they have not enough funds to make such chamber, so, they decided, the best use of this piece of space relic is to sell it for scrap metal.
Late 1929. The young Soviet Empire was just getting to its giant feet. Bitterness and tears of the WWI and the Civil War were already behind. The civilized and developed countries were looking at the newly emerged country in a very intent and examining way, trying to predict what this dark horse could come up with on the political map of the half-ruined world. In
Germany National Socialist German Workers' Party headed by Hitler was growing in leaps and bounds, The Triple Entente’s former allies were keeping their eyes wide open as well. That was the right time to convince the world that the new country, formed on the basis of torn and suffering Russia, had new heroes and new achievements.
We all get used to those small "best before" or "expiry" labels stamped on the items from the grocery stores, but it looks like some much bigger in size things like tanks can have an expiration date too. Here's what the Russian blogger, ex soldier writes: "Last summer I visited the army camp as a soldier, in the tanks unit. And that's what we've done there. Every soldier was given a crowbar, hammers, set of wrenches and unlimited free time to crush all you can crush with all those
tools. Dashboards, electronic fillings, plastic fittings etc. can be easily first crashed, then the next step is more challenging - with wrenches you need to loose all screws you can reach." All the tanks are new, just from the warehouse. The only reason why they should be destroyed is their expiration date. They come to this tank slaughter house by their own, not towed or dragged just to become a pile of scrap metal days later.
