Livingroom: my God... if people over here in the US only knew just HOW EASY we have it... maybe they'd stop trying to destroy our little eden :(
arcas: Anybody have recs for a decent front- and rear- camera dvr setup here in the US? Most of the ones I see on amazon and various chinese importer websites have marginal reviews and crap for image quality.
Lionel Mandrake: I hope - for his sake - the guy in the second video died. If not, he can't be more than a pile of goo hooked up to a thousand machines.
dr.zaeus: Speaking of Russian dashcams (warning: nsfl audio):Brick through window...
Marine1: Wait, when did the "In Pre-Commonwealth of Independent States Russia" filter get removed?
Geotpf: Marine1: Wait, when did the "In Pre-Commonwealth of Independent States Russia" filter get removed?Headlines are not affected by the filter.
JohnAnnArbor: Marine1: Wait, when did the "In Pre-Commonwealth of Independent States Russia" filter get removed?Why is that filter there in the first place? Does Drew not like Yakov Smirnoff (sp?) for some reason?
Grither: So can you say fark in a headline? Er... you know what I mean.
germ78: I had always wondered why there were so many dash-cam vids from Russia. Looks like my initial guess (shady legal system/corrupt cops) was proven partly correct.
Sylvia_Bandersnatch: germ78: I had always wondered why there were so many dash-cam vids from Russia. Looks like my initial guess (shady legal system/corrupt cops) was proven partly correct.I used to work with a bunch of ex-USSR guys. One told me that cops in Siberia (where he's from) are very corrupt, and will happily shake you down, beat you up, firehose you, whatever they feel like. One time while he was visiting, he got pulled over and pretended he didn't know Russian. (He knew his thickly accented English would be indistinguishable to them from any other kind of English.) They looked at his Rhode Island driver's license in confusion -- they'd never heard of that country. They eventually just let him go, apparently unsure of who he was or who he might know. (He was a former Soviet Air Force flying instructor, so I'm sure he knew just what kind of attitude might make them uneasy.)
