It’s Spring, Say SUNk

It's Spring, Say SUNk

In Russia there is a saying, “Winter always comes suddenly”, meaning that even if the last winter there were some problems with arrivals of freezing temperatures next winter they much likely won’t be ready for those too, and the winter and all problems connected with it would be “sudden”.

Now, winter has already passed but spring was way of a sudden even for the owners of those parking lots.

  1. Nuclear power plants don’t have tall thin chimneys to carry away combustion products, as can be seen in the photo.

    Better to live near a nuclear plant than a coal-fired power station: less pollution to worry about. Unless it’s a Soviet-designed RBMK type: not only a dangerous design, but also without a secondary containment vessel.

    Hence the Chernobyl disaster.

    • Your comments make me rofl.

      First of – nuclear power plants DO HAVE tall thin chimneys (at least in Russia).
      Secondly – no, it’s not better to live near a NPP if you know the risks for the environment. You wouldn’t liketo have a house with garden near a NPP.
      Thridly – Chernobyls’ RBMK type wasn’t responsible for the tragedy, there are still RBMKs working in Russia and they are just fine. At your aknowledgement – it was a constructor’s mistake. The RBMK it self had some flaws, yet they were not responsible for the disasters, when the engineers didn’t follow instructions and ignored safety measures.

      • The disaster was a direct result of the flawed and counter intuitive design of the RBMK reactor, which the operators where not fully aware of in 1986. They were cleared in the IAEA-report INSAG-7 in 1993. The control rods etc. have been changed in the other RBMK NPP’s but still with today’s better safety knowledge it is a very bad design. Thankfully Ignalina NPP is now closed, the most dangerous nuclear threat to Europe since CNPP. Still, Smolensk, Kursk and St Petersburg plants remains.

        • Agreed. RMBK has no cooling provisions on the top reactor lid. Bad design, and bad mistake at Chernobyl during testing.
          Two bads make a BOOM here!

          Also, why in third picture it looks like there is a brake shoe on top of car?

    • We have a big country. And less and less people !!! ( Why??) Plenty of room for garbage !!!!

      We are not silly USA ?!! We only deal with things that matter, like money and power !! ‘Eco’ is for homos

  2. Thesse pictures genuinely made me laugh. Thank you for brightening my day 🙂 Isn’t it odd that winter comes every year and we are never, ever ready for it?

  3. Did the drivers get out shortly after parking their cars in the water? Why did so many park in the water? Are they soaking them before they wash and rinse them? How come there are no bass boats in the pictures? Can bass swim 70 mph in Roosha? Do Rooskies water ski? How big is a moss cow? I like fried chicken.

  4. This kind of thing happens in Canada every year, maybe not to same extent.People never learn!Ice fishing huts now have to be off ice by certain date,too many sank every year.
