  1. hey, i bet these villagers do these huge holes by they own hands, and charge for the little assistance…

    here in Brazil some hook-truck owners spill oil in the lane and put a ad with their phone next the spot…

    • I think you are correct: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-40

      Amazing that they would have one, much less one that’s still running.

    “The T-40 was widely photographed at the time of Operation Barbarossa and also during the defence of Moscow. The type was very rarely seen after the end of 1941. Some T-40 remained in service as late 1946 in school units.”

  3. It all started many years ago, with a few bottles of vodka and a few girls who missed their husbands who had already died at the front.

    During the Great Patriotic War the crew of this tank was welcomed to the village so warmly that they decided to stay, and stay, and stay, until they married local girls and had children. Their spirit lives on through their descendants, who maintain and operate the tank, as seen in the video.

  4. Looks like Mudville. Are there people raised there who love it dearly, the land of their forefathers? Or is everyone young person in a hurry to move out to where the land is solid and clothes stay clean?

    What is there to do there, besides haul things through mud and drink?

  5. At least the writers would find story inspiration and new writing material. 😉

    The local entrepreneurs could market it as “shock therapy for writer’s block.”
