Ok, welcome to our third part of the daily fun stuff review from Russia. As a reminder those things first are being posted to English Russia twitter account and then late at night being compiled into one big posting on the website for those of you who don’t have a Twitter or just want to read them all at once. Photos, videos, news, fun facts we have it all today. So let’s start.
And we’ll start with a screenshot from Russian section of the famous ASOS clothing website. “ASOS Russia online store looks like a gay bar”, said somebody and here is a pic he posted as a proof. He has some point (no offense to actual gay population of course) lol.
Someone posted this photo from his school P.E. class. “The only useful lesson at Russian school” was the top rated comment for this one. Well, well there is something to think about here.
By the way, there was a new fire in the mall today! Almost three days in the row this things are happening, this time in St.Petersburg. Luckily nobody hurt. There is a brief video above of the fire seen thru the shopping mall windows.
An interesting historical fact:
Two month before Germany attacked USSR their officers were marching on the Red Square and greeted by top army generals. As people pointed out this is Ernst Köstring, the military attache of Germany to the USSR with his retinue, among other military attachés of other countries. They were invited by Stalin to demonstrate military equipment at the parade.
And to stay in historical context here is a caricature that can characterize that times.
Ok moving on to the more modern times:
However, can you call this modern? At least the engineering here is brilliant for sure.
And talking about the engineering there is a joke, connected with Russian (Soviet) Lada cars:
And what happens when your Lada car doesn’t have an airbag? Here is what:
There is a big LADA logo in the middle on the steering wheel. Now stamped into this poor man forehead.
Just a shot from the Moscow city with an example of the Moscow Soviet architecture. As someone said The Pizza guy must get lost all the time here. However it’s not all that depressing, the view from these apartments is like this:
So it’s not all that bad really.
Now something completely different.
A girl, a prostitute if you like that word, posts her ads on Russian’s Craigslist, Xbox console gaming section, offering quote: “Will rent you my console to play. One hour for $80. Have two working connectors, all cables safely rubber wrapped so no prob. I have a Mario Brazzers game to start with.”
Imagine how someone is going to be disappointed when he comes to play and discover she doesn’t have an Xbox really. Or won’t he? Or will he be more disappointed if she actually offered him an actual Xbox on his arrival? Anyways eight people already favorited her ad today.
Talking about the girls, here is a funny pic. You can call her “Big Olga”.
Talking about funny pics, here is one more:
When you accidentally kicked your cat and now want to make up for him. Do you think the guy is pardoned? Probably.
By the way, remember the story when US ordered to close down Russian consulate in Seattle. In response Russian embassy official twitter now started a poll in twitter asking followers which US embassy should they close in Russia – Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg or St.Petersburg?
The people have been voting for three days, 57,526 votes were casted and guess what, today Sergei Lavrov announced they are going to close US consulate in St.Petersburg Russia. The one that won in the poll results. And who said democracy isn’t a thing in Russia??
Talking about democracy and freedoms, here is a report from the courtroom about an incident happened two days ago.
“While the judge went to a room to think about the verdict, the convict and his wife started doing oral sex in the court room while the victim (woman) was also present in the room. This was interrupted by a court bailiff later. They got caught on the court’s webcam.” Sort of Natural Born Killers attitude.
You know what? We have that webcam video from the court room lol. Here is a frame from it:
Bailiff here is already interrupting the couple. We won’t post here the whole video of course for sort of moral reasons but if you are too curious we have it in our Telegram channel – they don’t censor things there. Available here.
Germans played a Soviet anthem (instead of Russian) during the German-Russia rugby game. Some Russian players were singing along. Then stopped singing and won with whopping 57:3 score. Have they got Stalingraded? Last time this anthem was playing on the German soil probably was when the Stalin arrived to sign the victory in 1945. (Well of course not, there were plenty of other occasions afterwards. Just for the sake of a joke.)
Do you want a business idea?
Someone is taking usual 10 rouble coins and…
Sticks his ads on the back of the coin. Sort of he gets 50/50 chance this is going to be spotted when he hands it to a cashier or wherever, and then hopes another customer will get it as a change. Head or tails probability basically.
Did you know that in Russia you can get yourself an “ASUS” bran jeans? Probably fake of course. “I bought them just because of the brand name”, says the guy.
Next guy is a fun guy too.
This isn’t some fancy weird costume no. It ain’t a human at all.
Here’s the context:
“I work as a shipping courier. One day I had to deliver a dummy, this was my brightest trip thru the Moscow yet”
“People I met were mainly reacting very positive. Many were making photos too”.
Sure he got some nice trip with that big black doll.
And now something different.
A city administration decided to blow up ice on the river, to let the spring waters flow more easily, sort of a normal practice on the rivers in spring, since the Soviet times. But this time the explosion was too strong, scared heck out of the people, broke windows glass. Check the video above for the moment of the explosion.
And this video (above) is a video of the explosion aftermath. “All glass is shattered” says the woman. Well, looks like not all but a lot for sure.
Another history fact:
Did you know that Czhechoslovakia (1949),
..Turks and Caicos island and..
..and Hong Kong has been minting coins with Stalin on them for some time (in different years). Did they know who the man was or they just picked a random image from Getty images as somebody suggested?
And last but not least!
Somebody got caught for growing weed inside his apartment. Growing weed in an apartment is a pretty sophisticated business – just take a look (video above) how much of technical equipment has been needed. The guy is just a space colony researcher probably…let him be free!
And that’s it for today, people! Did you like that? Yesterday’s edition of our report is available here. We thank all the Twitter commenters for adding up to the material, we appreciate that. If you liked the stuff, please consider it sharing/reposting we really appreciate that too. Have a nice one!
