Yeltsin is still alive? Who knew?

During the final years of his presidency he was dogged by health problems, retreating regularly to his country residence outside Moscow and spending days, sometimes weeks, away from the Kremlin.

well, at least he had health problems as a reason to be away from the capital

This guy is the poster boy for stinking mutant stone cold clear eyed dead ass old man drunken-ness.

And I salute him.

And, it was cool when he got up on a tank and helped to reject the old commies when they tried a coup, and locked up Gorby.

Of course I am just a hipster who thinks its cool to be aware of history, even recent history.

Them farkin' wacky Russians.
2005-09-07 01:42:36 PM  
Now if he had fallen on the red button, THAT would've been scary.

This, not so much.

After destroying his country's entire economy I fail see what else he would do then go on an extended bender. He and Bush will have plenty in common in the coming years.
2005-09-07 01:43:15 PM  
I heard he was out drinking like Ted Kennedy.
2005-09-07 01:44:08 PM  
But is Omarion ok?
2005-09-07 01:44:27 PM  
This guys liver must be made out of iron.
2005-09-07 01:44:35 PM  
porto rotundo!

does that mean fat tourist?
2005-09-07 01:45:02 PM  
Is he the guy with the jelly donut stain on his head?
2005-09-07 01:45:13 PM  
In Russia, leg breaks you!
2005-09-07 01:45:46 PM  
All Russian livers are made out of iron. They drink more Vodka than they drink water.
2005-09-07 01:46:00 PM  
I heard he was out drinking like Ted Kennedy.

If that was the case, he probably would have driven to Venice

Bart: Thank you, thank you. So, you're from Russia huh?

Russian: Da.

Bart: Ya drunk yet?

Russian: [depressed] Da.
2005-09-07 01:46:34 PM  
He met Bender in Italy?
2005-09-07 01:47:09 PM  
Broken thigh bone? You know how hard it is to do that? How high was the barstool he was on?
2005-09-07 01:47:58 PM  
Boris sure likes his wodka!
2005-09-07 01:48:07 PM  
He should've had a Hoveround.

"But is Omarion ok?"

Wasnt it Omarions publicist who said pray for him, not Omarion?

Too late now I guess, the cliche is written in stone.
2005-09-07 01:49:16 PM  
Now that's not really proper use of the "scary" tag is it?
2005-09-07 01:49:25 PM  
It's the ultimate drinking test... Can you hang with the Russian big dogs? Back in my prime, I could've had a good chance. But now, aged 37, my liver hurts thinking about it. Especially when it comes to Vodka.
2005-09-07 01:49:29 PM  
ahh yeltsin. when are these guys getting rid of putin?
2005-09-07 01:50:29 PM  
What a pisstank.

It was a banner day at the Bender house...
2005-09-07 01:51:29 PM  
Brilliant memory.
On side note, my girlfriend is Russian but I'm the drinker. The only exlpination I can come up with is when Russians get involved everything is backwards
2005-09-07 01:51:32 PM  
I've broken my leg, badly. It's quite painful.

/was 10 yeas old
//was not on a bender in Italy.
2005-09-07 01:52:11 PM  
that Yeltsin dance video makes me think of the morbidly obese girl on the couch bouncing all over the place when her mom offers her a twinkie...
2005-09-07 01:52:11 PM  
Yeltsin is still alive? Who knew?

Are you kiddin? The guy is pickled.
2005-09-07 01:53:25 PM  
Oh, like YOU'VE never done that.
2005-09-07 01:54:14 PM  
Boris Yeltsin broke his leg.

Past tense.

2005-09-07 01:56:53 PM

2005-09-07 01:56:55 PM  
dc-kid: when Russians get involved everything is backwards

Having studied the language, I'm forced to agree.

2005-09-07 02:00:05 PM  
yeah, why is this "Scary"?

The dude is 74 years old. OBVIOUS would have been a better tag.
2005-09-07 02:03:14 PM  
Remember the time that Clinton tore his knee "getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom at Greg Norman's house in Florida"? That had to be one of the best excuses to cover up a drunken fall down the stairs EVAR.

/not a Clinton bash
2005-09-07 02:06:48 PM  
I KNEW it wasn't just me.
2005-09-07 02:06:51 PM

It was that squirrel that broke my leg.
2005-09-07 02:19:44 PM  
What a retarded use of the 'scary' tag. Wake up submitter.
2005-09-07 02:27:16 PM  
An American and a Russian were sitting on a park bench in Moskow, drinking a bottle of vodka.

"This is really great vodka you have here," the American said. "and cheap, too. Only problem is, oine you get the bottle open, it's almost impossible to close it."

"But once you get the bottle open, why would you want to close it?" the Russian replied.
