  •  On the vids I watched... especially the BOOM!... (5+ / 0-) to a factory like structure... with breaking glass and caving in BIG windows....  those Rooskies sounded a LOT calmer than I would have been.

    •  Hard to get excited in subzero temperatures (2+ / 0-)

        Rooskies are always complaining that we don't give them enough credit and, at least once-in-a-while, they prove it.

        Even if just in the spirit of international relations I'd like to hand  it to the guys who did that video that I refer to... as one Prole to another.

        Drunk, stoned or tripping your brains out, to stay that calm when an unexplained  bolt out of the blue explodes on top of you?  That's a bit beyond the influence of pharma.

        Maybe that reaction is part of that dark Rooskie spirit.  But maybe at least some parts of that spirit are less about negative dark and more about positive zen.

          anything about Russia.  To be perfectly literal - and you can actually hear it in some of their voices - I think some of the people in those videos were happy for the distraction.  

          Pour yourself into the future.

            If something terrible or explosive happens here, it promptly attracts lots of curious people.
