The first days of Chernobyl disaster

One of the most tragic disasters in the human history happend twenty seven years ago. It was Chernobyl disaster. I wanr to post here a film which was filmed exactly during the spring and summer of 1986.

Dancing on the voting station

Last voting for the future Presiden of the Russian Federation, which was held on 4th of March, was world wide famous for online video translation of this process from all voting stations. By the way, there were more than 90 000 of such stations and at least 2 cameras were installed in each one.

And of course there should have appeared some dudes which could use this situation to make something funny. And they appeared!

Here you can see the clip with one of such dudes performing a dance on the voting station:

I would try to add some more clips with dancing on voting stations in comments...

But if to put a light bulb into a mouth is a very easy task, the getting it out without doctor’s assistance is almost impossible task.

Here you can see a person who failed this test:

How do they punish for the wrong parking in Russia?

Here you can see the answer for this question.

Unusual but extremly effective punishment. Once being punished you can not commit a new offence of this kind (at least with your old car).
