Thanks, subby, I was having a shiatty day, that helped.
 
2013-05-03 02:31:01 PM  
Holy jebus, who isn't watching their toddler?!
 
2013-05-03 02:32:20 PM  
Damn.  It's a bit dusty in here.
 
2013-05-03 02:41:23 PM  
Thanks for the video subby. It really does help to see these things happen. Makes you think more of the world instead of less.
 
2013-05-03 02:44:53 PM  
Good stuff.
 
2013-05-03 02:53:43 PM  
I needed this video very badly today.
Thanks Subby!!

There's hope...

Things I noticed:
1 - Russia apparently has a LOT of little old ladies wanting to cross the street where there's no cross walk
2 - No one seems to say thank you or even wait around for a thank you.  They just help and immediately leave.

If you've seen the usual Russian dashcam videos you'd know why they're in a hurry to leave. They're about to be rear ended by a speeding Lada with no brakes or sideswiped by an old dump truck full of goats.

Soundtrack a little overwrought, but a nice vid.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing.  Could just be that "thanks" isn't part of their culture.  In any case, good to see humanity being good to each other.  Life can be pretty shiatty at times, why make anyone's life worse when it's so easy to make their day just a bit brighter.

Ok, the kiss at the end got me a little bit.
 
2013-05-03 03:36:29 PM  
That video cheered me up a bit.
 
2013-05-03 03:38:20 PM  
Why do sites link to ripped off copies of youtube vids rather than to the account that actually created the vid?

Gotta start somewhere, and they wear lots of layers over there.

/even I don't know what that means
 
2013-05-03 04:11:57 PM  
As heatwarming as that is, I still take the keys with me when i get out of my vehicle to help someone on the street...
 
2013-05-03 04:27:24 PM  
I thought the toddler dropped a deuce in the road until I noticed it was a spot on the windshield
 
2013-05-03 04:31:51 PM  
That was so sweet I think I need an insulin shot. Especially the helping little old ladies across the street. Do we even do this in America?

Good on ya, Russia.

As someone who walks a lot I almost never see little old ladies. I think they are supposed to stay at home or be driven in cars. When I've had to ride the bus I do see a few.

It probably depends on where you are.  About once a month or so I'll help a little old lady up or down the stairs in a Métro station, or give up my seat on the bus to one or whatever.  Good public transport can the elderly a lot of freedom where in a car-oriented locale they'd be trapped in their houses.
 
2013-05-03 05:17:49 PM  
Every last one of them was creating an obstruction to the flow of traffic.  Throw the book at them all!
 
2013-05-03 05:17:54 PM  
a bit dusty...good stuff.
 
2013-05-03 05:24:16 PM  
Nice way to end the week. Thanks.

2013-05-03 05:50:16 PM  
I guess the Russians do love their children too.
 
2013-05-03 05:54:36 PM  
I'm glad I live in a country where people STAY OUT OF THE farkING ROAD.
 
2013-05-03 06:31:10 PM  
Clearly a fake. Russians are heartless and bloodthirsty beasts.

SurelyShirley: Clearly a fake. Russians are heartless and bloodthirsty beasts.


Not to mention the fact that they're trying to steal our precious bodily fluids.
 
2013-05-03 06:40:37 PM  
At first I thought it had to be a hoax, that there was no way they could actually be Russian dashcams... then I saw what the guy helping the first toddler was wearing.

Are old women forced to walk everywhere in Russia? I can't tell you the last time I saw an elderly person trying to cross the street.

Did that pedestrian just pick up that car?!?
 
2013-05-03 06:48:55 PM  
I really feel a little bit better about the world after that. :)
 
2013-05-03 06:49:31 PM  
Great. Now a bunch of copycats are going to go around and start trying to "out-nice" people...so disingenuous
 
2013-05-03 07:05:22 PM  
In Russia, love finds you
 
2013-05-03 07:22:40 PM  
I'm not gonna lie, with all the other dash cam videos coming out of Russia I thought they were all in a hurry and could care less about their fellow human beings.  This really did make me realize I'm an ass

Russian to judgment, were you?
 
2013-05-03 07:43:21 PM  
Thanks. I needed that today as well.

Take that Putin!!

You know? i always knew there was something more to those commie bastards than meets the eye.

BunkyBrewman: Damn.  It's a bit dusty in here.

busy chillin': a bit dusty...good stuff.


More than a bit

/thanks subby. :'-)
 
2013-05-03 08:05:57 PM  
But remember folks, thirty years ago every single one of them pinko ruskies had his finger on a big red button, just itching to start WW-III. Even the toddlers. And only their drunken cowardice, godless immorality, and fear of Ronald Reagan prevented them from pressing LAUNCHSKY. It took the power of two insanely hot faux lesbian rock stars to bring them back from the brink of insanity. Thank you, T.A.T.U., for saving the world (and for keeping the feral kitten population in my neighborhood under control.)

/Just kidding. Some of my best friends, etc.
//Definitely one of the dustier videos on Fark this week.

Cardrack Jim: Holy jebus, who isn't watching their toddler?!


We should totally ban roads. That kid could have died from wandering into that one.
 
2013-05-03 08:32:02 PM  
What, no mention of seeing A FARKING METEOR STREAKING ACROSS THE SKY like its nothing?  I am disappoint.

That happened shortly after the kiss

This vid needs Sting's "Russians" for the sound track....
 
2013-05-03 09:37:11 PM  
Mom at 1:55 seems like a biatch. How about a quick wave or nod?
 
2013-05-03 11:01:32 PM  
Russia looks like a shiatty place to live.
