  1. United States has the same thing, only instead of tents we have trailers, and the people that live in them are called “white trash”. What are these hut-people called in Russia?

    • Those houses are very rare. Only mongol look alike people use them in South of East Siberia. They dont have any special name. Those people prefer to live in their traditional houses. Not just because they are cheap.

      • Many white hut peoples in Moscow. Because huts are mobile, I never get tired of living on the same street. I like it much more than my old flat. Now when I get drunk and need to pee, I can just open my door and go.

    • Yurts are popular with hippies and you can also rent them in certain campgrounds. Sherif is an ignorant to compare people living in a yurt with some beer-guzzling NASCAR reject and their trailor.

  2. Yo slap a 40″ plasma tv and a hot tub and you will totally be pimpin!

    Get one of those Russian Hummers to pull it and you will be popin bottles all over Siberia!

  3. AFAIK this houses named jurt, yurta — nomad’s tent – these days are being used for funerals, etc. as a tradition… OR in the remote/high mountains pastures…

    • Texas 1, Sarah, and Boris … Now that’s a menage a trois!

      Hey, if you two can lay off the vodka and the gay sex for a few minutes, check out the Communist Manifesto set to classic American cartoons.

    • Puuuleezzz! I’ll be like king tut and stock mine full of naked Russian girls. You two can stop over for a few brews though.

  4. Yurt is the origin of the English word ‘horde’. As the Mongols moved into Western Europe from the East, the West Europeans were terrified of the sweeping success of the Mongol warriors. Since the Yurts were a symbol of the army moving forward, the Westerners referred to the approaching Yurt which in their minds became the Horde.

  5. It’s too bad Cheetahs may become extinct because of the opulants that kept them as pets and forced inbreeding upon them.

    • Yes, I know all about the population bottle-neck. It was caused by opulants that kept cheetahs as pets and hunting animals. Now, members of their species are so genetically similiar that one could take a skin graft from a one cheetah and apply it to another with no rejection whatsoever. Try that with a housecat.

  6. I like these little things and they look extremely cheap and easy to build.

    I wonder if anyone has considered starting a project to house the homeless in these things?

  7. actually these “huts on wheels” your talking about originated during the Qin Empire in China many many years ago…

  8. Nothing wrong living in a yurt. Not to far from where I live there is an acreage with a yurt residence. As building costs and real estate became prohibitive, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a yurt community in Canada.

    • Learn to read: he said “in Canada”. As far as i know, trailer parks are way more common in the US. I guess the great canadian weather has something to do about it.

  9. Hey there! In Madrid we have the same problem, the houses are too expensive…..this yurtas are very nice, look at the inside paintings of the door.

    I really like your blog!! I´v started a blog with “minimal” russian language classes, and I´ll post your blog into it for my listeners, is that ok?
    Paká!

  10. I remember reading in a college anthropology class many years ago that cultures with round houses also have a higher incidence of insanity. This same thing holds true for people who lived in round houses in the West or worked in a facility that had round walls. I do not know if this was ever disproven.

      • In Russia? Come on now, you know a well as I do “Inbreeding” is all the rage in rural south, especially Texas – you should know!

        • Just look at Jerry Lee Lewis, he married his 14 year old cousin (Which was legal throughout the southern states). Texans and southerners not in the media spolight behave even worse.

                • But make shure they don’t put me in a gas chamber or burn me alive. It funny how they brought all the Soviet “criminals” to “justice” but havn’t brought “ONE” Nazi criminal before the law.

                  • What are you talking about? The biggest Soviet criminal is the president. HEIL PUTIN! Boris, you would sell your mother out to Putin wouldn’t you? You little Hitler Youth.

                  • Oh I know why, becuse all the remaining nazis are now in Estonian governmemt. Why should they prosecute one of their own? BTW, my grandfather and pleny other Jewish friends who he knew, were killed in the gas chambers similer to those that Estonian “freedom fighters” helped to build for Nazi Germany.

                    You think you’ve done Jewish comunity a great favor for allowing the First ever synagogue to be build after the Holocaust? – YOU HAVE NOT! Jewish comunity will NEVER forget all the atrocities committed by Estonia, until the perpetrators are brought to justice and there will be a public apology from the Estonian government!

                    Go night my Nazi friend, have nice dreams..

                    • What are you talking about? The holocaust never happened. Don’t you read any Aryan newspapers? I’m sure you would know since you live in Russia. There are tons of neo-nazis there. Who are you preaching to btw? If memory serves me correctly, I haven’t said anything racist. Btw, Orthodox Jews have their fingers deep into Nazi Putins pockets. I suggest reading this weeks NYTimes article on it. In Soviet Russia, apology comes from you!

                    • No! I refuse to believe! I cannot believe that Texas1 could have so much hate towards Jewish people. Texas1, please tell me – you didn’t make these awful comments.

                    • Boris! I assure you that texas1 and I are not the same. Have faith, buddy! Let’s not start another cold war! I am not an anti-semite or a racist (don’t know about texas1 tho) I don’t know how anyone got that idea. Please don’t sully my good reputation by saying that I am texas1!!! God Bless!

                    • Redwhite&blue/Texas1 your sister has her legs wide open, go attend to her before she chooses her other brother over you. Hurry! Hurry!

                    • Your jewish and in Russia? I thought they all came to America? Just about all the russians that I know here are jewish.

                    • there are Jews in Russia. However, a lot of them left for Israel after the Cold War. I see a lot of them immigrating to the US as well.

  11. Those are NOT huts. They are yurts. Yurts are were used in Kazakhstan by the nomadic peoples therein. They are also found in Mongolia and are known as gers.

    Yerts are awesome! I would like to live in a yert!

  12. Not to change the subject off of personal insults and vendettas, but do these people ever roll up their houses and put them in a washing machine?

    • due to the constant presence of vodka inside and near the huts, no cleaning is necessary. the fumes act as a sterilizing agent.

  13. Thats cool looking, if they throw in that anchient looking art style, yan live in it and feel the anchient history in what u r doing

    trailor parks in america is just ugly poverty

    • don’t badmouth america, you ignorant liberal. why don’t you and boris go join some estonian hippie commune. my trailor has directv and 3 easily accessible gunracks just in case i see my pinko steppin’ on my property. THE SOUTH HAS ARISEN!

      • Dream on Schiklgruber. Cheney can’t run again because he has alredy served two terms as President.

        • Good thing there is no rules on Vice Presidency. I hope McCain wins this one and sends Obama packing back to boarding school. Cheney can run the country again through McCain. Why do you hate America, John from Kansas? Don’t you love God? God loves you.

          • Cheney is President, and I have no doubt that Cheney would run the country through McCain. I have no problem with America, only the phony patriots who are destroying us with greed and coruption. God feels the same way.

          • America despises Bush and Cheney and the repiglican party has commited political suicide by having Bush as its head honcho

            Democrats will win hands down, which Democrat is the question

            • Lets hope american people will be smarter this time. Just a tip; – keep redncks as far as possible form the ballot papers.

                • People like you should be in prison for Hate crimes and denying the Holocast. No wonder they keep people like you in Texas, as far away from civilised population as possible.

                  • Whaaaaaaat?

                    Although Kazakhstan a glorious country, it have a problem, too: economic, social and Jew.

                    I don’t even live in TX. If I did I would have a name like texas1. I was being sarcastic about the holocaust. I’m not dat unedumacated.

                    • No you not “unedumacated” you are just uneducated. Boris do not don’t steep to his level, he belongs in the zoo.

                    • You’re exactly right, Washington. I am ignorant because of the way I was raised. If I was in a more diverse environment, I would not have turned out this way. Unfortunately for you, I was raised in a zoo. My parents were monkeys.

                • But you said you would rig the voting machines to favor the facists. How is that allowing all citizens the equal opportunity to vote?

                  • You have defined yourself rather well. What you believe to be sophisticated humor is just sneering, caustic remarks.

    • Unfortunately, no. Believe it or not, I graduated college and am studying for the CFA exams. I’m part of the Great American Multi-National task force poised to take part in the greatness of globalization. Go Team Bush! What about you? Shouldn’t you be hugging some trees?

        • I’m not out of a job. Silly. Actually, my firm was mentioned in the WSJ today. Lovell Stewart Halebian Funny thing those liberals at WSJ.

          http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2007/05/16/is-it-ok-for-lawyers-to-copy-complaints/

          Apparently, we are bad. 🙁 damn liberals.

          #2. I wouldn’t be in Baghdad because we can just get young kids who are easily manipulated into fighting for us. Nothing like a squeeze on oil to squeeze the economy! Let me tell, securities/commodities manipulation, even after lawsuits, still pays! Look at US judges and their conservative rulings. Unfortunately, I am on the plaintiffs side.

  14. Cheney can’t run again because he has alredy served two terms as President. Dream on Schiklgruber.

  15. OMG! *_* Very COOL and nice *_* My fathers have and caravan but I hate it, I prefer my little camp tend *_* Is the best!

        • omg. I can’t stop laughing at what is being written on this forum. texas1 and I are totally different people. I think it is hilarious that people think we are the same.

          Boris, you didn’t answer texas1’s question though… Is she ready for the sexy time???

          Boris: This is Sarah. She is my sister. She is number-four prostitute in whole of Russia.

        • Boris really, for a Jew you seem to be a bit naive. Just look at the time sequence, language and the general objective of the comments made by Bullwinkle and redwhite&blue. Texas1 IS Bullwinkle and redwhite&blue.
          He used these names to express his true HATEFUL RACIST opinions! If I were Jewish, I would be truly offended.

          • I am offended. And it just proves that my preconseptions about Texas1 and rednecks in general were right. I guess I was a bit naive..

            • Boris, I am offended that you don’t believe me. C’mon, does this person even write like me? You should know my writing style by now. Also, I think this person posted a few weeks back in a post section and I told him to get lost then. Usually, I don’t attack anyone without first being attacked. In addition, I’ve always included enough absurdities that a normal could not possibly take my comments seriously.

              Anyway, I have suggested to methods to show that this person isn’t me. So either provide some proof that it is me or stop blaming me.

        • No! I would never make such comments. You run this site. Look at the IP’s and do a trace. My guess is that they aren’t even from Texas.

  16. well .. i cant i dont speak russian & so doesnt texas1 & most of us; by the way texas1 does look like eblan!!

  17. You sound like a rally naive little boy who watched far too much Fox news. You have never been in Russia, have you?

    Ok, why does Russia under Putin keeps “Falling and Falling”?
    As far as I’m concerned the avarage salary keeps on increasing and increasing, GDP per capital has increased dramatically form the Yeltsin years, foreign investments are increasing every day, russians are much happier under Putin then they ever were under Yeltsin, mafia and corruption of the 90’s haS virtually disappeared, Russians are enjoying foreign holidays, foreign cars, fashion, etc, russian people can start up enterprises without the fear of the mafia and the need to pay protection rackets. Also, if you have some initial capital there are great undiscovered business opportunities.

    Honestly man, if you go to Moscow or St.Petersburg you will see the bigest amount of luxury cars, apartments, designer shops you ever seen in any city of the world. Modern russia is not about Putin of fake western democracy, it’s about MONEY MONEY AND MORE MONEY! If you have a brain in moderen russia, you will go very far, and that’s what I like about this unique country.

    I suggest, you finish school, ask your dad for some money and go see what russia is realy like, and speak to some people before making totally groundless and childish comments.

    Don’t forget to finish your homework – its bedtime soon!

  18. I think it is Borris/Pacific NW/John from Kansas and FAO. He couldn’t find anything new and interesting to post so he decided to create this drama.

  19. You can distribute your photo tomorrow. You are tired and need some rest. Have you poured that shot yet?

  20. They are probably Yakut Turks of Sakha Republic, North-East Russia… These yurts were so common. Many Central Asiatic nomad nations (Turks, Mongolians and others) used them in past…

  21. Russian huts?? Who the hell provides all this information??
    Those are typical mongolian huts, used by most asian countries. I mean even look a the picture, they all look asian! God I hate this website..

  22. Hey guys those white homes called GER …its a world number 1 movin home. very comfertable easy to built and pack …warm and everything
