    I thought I read somewhere that they inject dudes with poison. I can't remember if some of it was radioactive.

    Those Russians sure seem to be accident prone.

    Remarkable string of misfortune.
    I have a Lenten confession to make: for the last 3 years, I often wish this strange malady would fall onto one particular leader; the one who likes shirtless horseback photos of himself. Mea maxima culpa.

    This picture of him is no more inspiring than the shirtless ones, but I do like his car. I like quirky, odd cars and the 1972 Zaporozhets certainly qualifies. Stanislav, wish any kind of malady you prefer on the leader, but nothing must happen to the car! I posted this picture years ago on another forum and I think it was Steve Foerster who remarked that he "didn't recognize him at first, with his shirt on."

    The leader - hmph. But c,mon, you gotta like the car!

    Zaporozhets rocks, a legend on wheels. The plant that made it, ZAZ (in Zaporozhye, Ukraine) followed it up with Tavria, but that car had much less character - it was essentially Ford Fiesta built with really, really low quality.
    I frankly do not care about the way His Dickness would leave us. With any luck, someone close to him would slip him some Polonium.

    "Can you hear me now?"

    Strictly speaking this is off-topic but it's got a Russian guy in a grave so it's not too far off the mark. Soon to be a cellphone commercial?
