Some places it IS the 13th century.

In some places, depending on how far you have to walk for water, it's 4,000 BC.

Hell, we got so much food, here, even our poor people are fat and we STILL like to watch shows about "gangstahs" who be killin' mothahfu*kahs over who gets to wear what colour bandanna.

We've come a long way from the trees. So far, about 20', depending on the height of the tree.

The story began banally enough, with a traffic incident on April 14, 2008. The motorcade of Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov was driving through the city of Gudermes when it ran into a convoy carrying a member of the powerful Yamadayev clan. The convoy did not yield, and a gunfight broke out.

Do you bite your thumb at me, sir?

Nice.
The violence was not the answer, but allowing violence to rule out of fear is not a good second choice.

FTA-
At the same time, Kadyrov, a devout Muslim, has increasingly started to rule the republic as his own caliphate, with his personal militia of around 5,000 men at times acting like a Taliban-style religious police, harassing women for smoking or failing to wear headscarves. Kadyrov has even insisted that Islamic Shari'a law supersedes the laws of Moscow, ...

Nope, nothing to worry about here, everything is smoothed over now.

The Zax
by Dr. Seuss
From The Sneetches and Other Stories
Copyright 1961 by Theodor S. Geisel and Audrey S. Geisel, renewed 1989.

One day, making tracks
In the prairie of Prax,
Came a North-Going Zax
And a South-Going Zax.

And it happened that both of them came to a place
Where they bumped. There they stood.
Foot to foot. Face to face.

"Look here, now!" the North-Going Zax said, "I say!
You are blocking my path. You are right in my way.
I'm a North-Going Zax and I always go north.
Get out of my way, now, and let me go forth!"

"Who's in whose way?" snapped the South-Going Zax.
"I always go south, making south-going tracks.
So you're in MY way! And I ask you to move
And let me go south in my south-going groove."

Then the North-Going Zax puffed his chest up with pride.
"I never," he said, "take a step to one side.
And I'll prove to you that I won't change my ways
If I have to keep standing here fifty-nine days!"

"And I'll prove to YOU," yelled the South-Going Zax,
"That I can stand here in the prairie of Prax
For fifty-nine years! For I live by a rule
That I learned as a boy back in South-Going School.
Never budge! That's my rule. Never budge in the least!
Not an inch to the west! Not an inch to the east!
I'll stay here, not budging! I can and I will
If it makes you and me and the whole world stand still!"

Well...
Of course the world didn't stand still. The world grew.
In a couple of years, the new highway came through
And they built it right over those two stubborn Zax
And left them there, standing un-budged in their tracks.

Let your friends park their cars in front of my house for more than 20 minutes and see what happens...

Honor and Premium Parking would be enough for me.

This. We're really not as advanced as we like to tell ourselves. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.

Everybody knows it was because Great Grandpa Hatrov was a no-good, dirty pig thief.
