  1. What?.. Is it uncommon to place ads in toilets too?
    Some companies in Lithuania even advertise it as a service on their websites. For example: http://www.bim-group.lt/en_US/pricing/bim-i-p-2

  2. I think this is pretty common now. I have seen quite a few restaurants in the US and Canada with TV monitors above urinals and in stalls. Almost every club I have been to also has these static ads.

  4. I’m currently taking my first semester of Russian, but was bored and curious as to what exactly they said. Here’s my dictionary translation. The third one I can’t make much sense of. Any more knowledgeable people out there wanna help interpret #3?

    1. Get ready for the new web-technology generation!

    2. The new level of safety and reliability.

    3. Support for IPv6 each iron – the IP address. (doesn’t make sense to me, is iron slang?)

    4. Proven platform for your data.

    • As for the 3rd item, it means that any kind of consumer electronics (be it a kettle or even an iron) should have an ip address since the range of IP addresses provided by the IPv6 protocol is more than wide to satisfy this requirement 🙂

    • We call almost any type of computer hardware that way 🙂 Because ‘hardware’ in our language would be sound like ‘technical supplies’ or smth. So we call it ‘je-lEh-zo'(железо), because all those pieces go in steel box 🙂 Well, It’s hard to explain it 100% clear, but I hope you understand it 🙂

    • Ah, I got it. That happens when you translate железо into English an get ‘iron’, then translate it again into Russian and you most likely will get ‘утюг’-electrical iron, not a [Fe] from Periodic table 🙂

  6. Do you guys want to know where these pictures have been taken?
    I have the answer. It’s Microsoft office in Moscow, 1st floor. There can be no mistake. Seen it there many times.

  7. PP,
    Sometimes I wonder if typing such posts just makes folks like you feel better.
    I cannot find any rational explanation for such behavior. This is like writing a 4-letter word on a wall. Where does it put your own level of intelligence?
