Video of the day -- Russians!

These people have 8,500 nuclear weapons:

I suppose vodka accounts for much of this, but some of it -- like the upside-down parked car at 6:46 -- how did somebody even do that?

Holy cow! Lotsa, lotsa vodka, I think. Those two old ladies - too old or too inebriated (?) to stand - whacking each other with their purses were the ultimate.

Good video Infidel ... from what I read and heard from folk's, Russia is really a fun place these dayz anywayz, excellent music scene too.

But I was also browsing some of your last link- up ... and the Washington Post piece on bank teller pay was incredible, I mean, I'm familiar with NYC's cost of living, etc and $14K a year is incredible, I still have familia in NY to, and even heard that Micky D's and similar fast food joint's are paying just above $9 an hour in Brooklyn, Manhattan, etc. My new neighbour's (William & Delores) just moved here from the South Bronx (though William was born and in San Juan PR until age 5 before moving to NYC) he told me that the wages all over town are awful unless you work on Wall Street, he is a contractor that wires hotel's for Wi-Fi and does some computer repair work of some sort on the side, and was making a third less pay than what he makes in Dallas and here the cost of living is HALF of NYC's, he just flew up to Washington City (I think Utah), but he is based out of Dallas now, just has to travel to other location's to set up the room's tech's or whatever. But yeah, William said pay these dayz in NY is awful yet the prices and taxes are through the roof, as well as petty regulation's/ do & dont's ... they love it here in Dallas though! {: ) alot different from when I lived in NYC, I'll tell ya that.

Later Infidel ....

Another link article on your last link round up that caught my atencion was the Guardian piece on ALEC and solar/ alternative energies usage. I know that many communities across America, especially in large state's like Texas have been trying to make it more difficult for people to even make enegy use modification's to their home's ... you know what in Hell that's about, eh? $$$$

Just wanted to mention it ....

Some of the shots were confusing until I had a couple of shots of vodka. Then they made sense to me.

Leslie: Given how furious (and probably inebriated) they were, it's probably for the best that they didn't try to stand up.

Ranch: There is some great pop music there, though these days it's not so fun if you get into the political scene.

Shaw: Everything about Russia makes more sense with a couple of shots of vodka, I think.

Well, I have met some dubious Russians in my time. Total mentalists. I'm nicking this i753. My wife is a graduate in the Russian and during her year in Moscow saw some... er... interesting things.

She once saw the Militia chip a hobo off the road in winter and frozen like Jack Nicholson at the end of The Shining.

Nick: It's a very different culture, that's for sure. I'd think a woman in particular would run into some memorable experiences there.

Did you see this?

Wouldn't you have loved to hear people on their cell phones describing to other people what was going on?

Shaw: Hah! Yeah, that's an odd one. What I wonder is, where did the dildo copter come from? Are there novelty businesses that sell that or did someone go to the trouble of making it?
