Hey Kim, nice photos ! Thanks for linking them. One of the guys (row: 8 / 4th pic from the left) could be my twin brother ;-)

Have a nice day !

YW! So, you are Ded Moroz then?

Sergej Varsjinskij said...

No, not really ;-)

Oh, that's a pity :( because I really really really want something for New Year's and it doesn't cost any money. All you'd have to do is just make Khodorkovsky and Putin switch places. And in so doing you'd be handling all the gifts for all the people of the entire Russian Federation. So convenient!

Why Khordorkovsky ? Why not Abramovich or Berezovsky ? ;-)

Well, if Putin switched places with them he'd be a rich, free oligarch. I'd prefer him in prison. What's more, I don't think either of them is as qualified to be president of Russia as Khodorkovsky, though certainly more so than Putin (then again, your average lemon is also more qualified than Putin, so it's not saying much).

Sergej Varsjinskij said...

Khordorkovsky is as much oligarch as Beresovsky and Abramovich. So, when being an oligarch disqualifies someone for the 'job', Khodorkovsky is as unqualified as the other two.

Well, I do know quite a few people who are less qualified than Putin. He might not be the best of all possible candidates but certainly isn't the worst.

Bloody hell, another post proving the analytical value of your blog. Thanks for that. I myself came across a site where some idiots just like yourself published photos of Americans with kind comments to them. Believe me, people on the pictures you published look much better.

Cannot provide a link however, cause I was actually disgusted by the pictures and would not think I might ever need to refer to them again.

Well, I can't understand why you get so excited over a couple of photos. They show oridinary people who can be seen on any public transportation. I saw similar faces on the London Tube, the Paris Metro and on many other places. Of course I can't possibly know what Kim intended to express by linking these photos, but at the end of the day the message turns out to be the following ....

Russians are people like anybody else, not different from (let's say) British or Americans. They have no horns and no horseshoes on their feet. And they don't carry diabolic forks.

nice pictures---very realistic and in no way degrading or mean. the folks are all clean, most look intelligent---there's no reason to be offended. russians scowl too much, but americans smile too much. people are different. one sees the best of moscow in the metro at 7am.

NKOURILKO: You appear not to have noticed that these photos were taken by a Russian photographer and originally posted on a Russian website. Likewise, you appear not to have noticed that there is no comment of any kind by us regarding the photos. The absurdly inaccurate and harsh nature of your comment exposes you as a ridiculous hypcrite. If you think your comment is an example of the type of substance this blog should try to emulate, you must be drunk.
