So people can love him long time?

I have seen Lenin on display in his tomb. Or at least I've seen the wax figure they claim is Lenin. One of the creepiest moments i've ever experienced.
 
2013-03-07 08:41:31 PM  
Let's hope he didn't go Full Lenin. His successor was one of history's greatest monsters.

I've never seen Lenin, but I agree that it must be creepy.

I really don't believe there is any human that has ever lived that is so great that their body should be preserved for posterity to see lying on their back dead.

When I die, I don't care if I'm cremated, thrown into the sea or buried in the ground. Hell, you can even throw me into a landfill if it will save money.

Wasn't Argentina going to do that with Eva Peron, but didn't follow through?

How'd he make it off the island?

If this shiat was in his will, it just proves that his ego simply could not comprehend the idea that people were not completely thrilled with his despotic actions during his tenure.  He couldn't conceive of the notion that one day the people would vandalize his body and arrange a lovely new art project involving farm animals.

Did Lenin cry like a little girl and beg the doctors not to let him die, too?

It will only last until the next revolution. Then someone will incinerate it.

Yes. Because you have to be a conservative to hate someone who brutally tortured and intimidated dissidents.

/derp. you has it.

Learn something about other cultures, subby.  He went full Latin America, and basically just old school.  Bodies are displayed in glass cases during their version of a "wake."  And that goes for everyone who can afford a traditional funeral.  They did the same thing for Pope John Paul II.

I need to expound.  They embalming is not a common practice in Latin America; hence, the glass case to keep out the smell.  They do the same thing in caskets and even take pictures of of bodies in caskets to keep as a memory (yes, odd here, I know).  You can see it for yourself in high profile cases such as William Burrough's wife and and Selena (and that shiat was televised all over Mexican TV).

Crap that just reminded me of trouble Howard Stern got into for stating he would like to have sex with her corpse.

Even so, Chavez will be permanently displayed in the Museum of the Revolution. That's going full Lenin.

He wasn't syndicated where I live at the time but his comments made national news and ticked a lot of people off. Remember that was the mid 90s we had the luxury of getting pissed at that kind of stuff.

Just a small clue.  Nobody really wants their oil.  It's the worst sludgy dinosaur crap on the planet.

I guess.  Revolution used to be the spirit of Twisted Sister's "We're Not gonna Take It."  Now it's "You are a bad bad man."
