Sure, it's +37 now. But in a few weeks it will be -37, and shortly after that winter will come and the weather will turn cold.

According to facts pulled from Wikipedia, as long as your vodka is over 160 proof it will not freeze in a Siberian winter. (Siberian climate, ethanol-water phase diagram)

Meh. Springtime in North Texas. When it punches holes in windshields and leaves dents in cars you can't reproduce with a hammer, give me a call.

Everything is more depressing in Russia.

Seriously, though, I know there are many beautiful aspects of Russian history, architecture and art, music, etc., but every farking scene I see in photos and video of modern Russia seems to have this dark cloud lingering over it.

They do a good job of cleaning the vodka bottles off that beach.

She's got pink colored bikini on. Look closer (I did)

+1 for video showing it actually coming out of nowhere as advertised.

-1 for 2 cm diameter hail at most.


Come on out to the Great Plains in the springtime, we'll show you how to party:

Recently had the roof of my car cut off and a new one welded in due to hail damage.  Roof on house also needed to be re-shingled.

Our water feature out back looked like it was a serious fountain from all the splashing from the hail stones.  The road had a good inch to two inches of hailstones when it was done, lasted probably less than 10 minutes.

A Czech friend has told me that in pre-1989 they considered Americans crazy, telling such stories as "In America when they get a hole in their sock they just throw it away!"

Yeah I got caught in one of those while visiting a friend in Reading PA not too long. The next morning it was funny/sad to see all the trashed cars up and down the road. Smashed the crap out of the mall skylights

One of the guys in my office immigrated from Novosibirsk when he was 14. He says there's not a lot to do there and they start drinking at around age 8.

Wow, that is the most evil looking hail I've ever seen. It's evolving to hurt you. What did you do to make it so angry?

Novosibirsk is in the middle of the Eurasian continent. Surely they are used to extreme weather.

I found it interesting that the fifth-longest river in the world is called the Ob.

Which are longer? Off the top of my head, without looking ... and not in order ... Nile, Amazon, Ganges, Mississippi. If one of those is wrong, then I'll guess some other river in Russia.

Russia is big. It's got a lot of rivers.

I'm actually reading the Brothers Karamazov (yes translated into English, by MacAndrew). And I get it.

But why think the "syndrome" is specifically Russian? "A dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for..." That sounds pretty universal to me, a personal temperament rather than a "national type." Maybe some Russian intelligentsia in a certain period wrote about it more than "we" do, but what do you find in Dostoevsky that you don't see in say Flannery O'Connor?

As for Nabokov, well, in culture he was more German/French than Russian. It's hard to think of even Gogol writing Lolita. But then I'm biased: to me an American college town is Knoxville or Columbus, not Cambridge or Palo Alto.
