My President could take Your President

The Western media has recently given a lot of coverage to the theme of a 'resurgent' Russia - Russian bombers buzzing British and US airspace, our growing reliance on Russian energy exports, stuff like that

but nowhere near enough coverage has been devoted to just how cooooooool Vladimir Putin is trying to look these days...




so thanks to Noel for sending me a link to this Pravda photo-story entitled...





Hmmm, now that's what I call cross-gender appeal.


Warning!! Heterosexual men looking at this picture run a serious risk of turning Gay


What's it going to be next week? Speedos?

F*ck me I hope this isn't giving Gordon Brown any ideas

But wait, what's that I see at the top of Pravda's on-line front page...




Zoom and enhance...



"Since ancient times the exploration of the North was of immense interest to humans. It was an attraction for adventurers and researchers seeking mysterious land and unexplored islands there...."


The full, astonishing story in Pravda's science section (where else)
here

Fans of this sort of thing will no doubt be reminded that the super-fruity Thule Society once promoted ideas along these lines, before it morphed into the ruling political party in Germany in the 1930s and '40s. Fortunately, we live in more enlightened times and the possibility that fruity little occult clubs or their members could ever wield political power is now virtually zero.


Pictures of the head of state with his tits out AND a Hollow Earth article - that's my kind of a national news agency...

Pravda is used by internet Russiaphiles, who, while not being anything near as bad as their opposite pole in th US:

"a CRISP eating, pod scratching, FAUX "news", WWF watching {thats the wrestling not the fauna} couch potato."

still blind themselves to the problems of their own country's foreign policy, which again like the US, isn't one fraction as bad.

I very kind Russian lady has been teaching me Russian lately. She's a gem. I wonder what she'd make of Pravda? I dont really wanna ask.

I've said this too many times now but Russia under Putin is nowhere near as scary as what Russia was turning into before Putin - for ordinary Russians and the rest of us

Which, of course, is not the same thing as holding the guy up as a saint. As far as I can tell, the KGB didn't specialise in recruiting humanitarians

Cool shades though...

Russia inder Yeltsin was going to be some kind of weird US chimera. Putin has turned it around to try and benefit the good people of Russia. - A kind of Russian Chavez. Three cheers for that, but 3 boos for Failure to destroy what seems like Russia's false flaggers, The wars against the Chechens, the unchallenged assassiantion of Journalists who oppose the bad things in Russia.

Russia must not stoop to the levels that the West has, even thought the power it would allow Russia projected would be immense.

Been there, done that

Stef said...

Of course, Putin like Chavez dined with the Devil on his journey to power. You'd like to think that they were both packing very long spoons...

"packing very long spoons"

Oooooooooh Matron!

Stef said...

I know for a fact that Putin is packing an absolutely enormous spoon - I read about it in Pravda a few weeks ago

In other Putin-related news...

2 points

1. Vlad the Impaler would look mghty fine with some nipple rings.

2. In highlighting the Blobfish - whose existence I was starting to suspect as some giant hoax ,you missed the vital information that Wikipedia offers (and is therefore 100% true)

"To remain buoyant, the flesh of the blobfish is primarily a gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water; this allows the fish to float above the sea floor without expending energy on swimming. The relative lack of muscle is not a disadvantage as it primarily swallows edible matter that floats by in front it."

How can any animal exist in such a state without the ability to watch endless repeats of "Midsomer Murders", "Countdown" "Sell your garage for a Million and retire" etc., ?

I think we should be told.

Talking about children this caught my eye on Boing Boing....

Boy kills snake in petting zoo

A young boy stomped and killed a 10-foot-long python featured in a petting zoo at a Catholic school's festival in Cincinnati, Ohio.

House of Reptiles owner Scott Braunstein had brought snakes, alligators, lizards, spiders, and frogs to the St. Bernadette Festival as he has done for several years. The boy apparently told Braunstein that he hated snakes before, allegedly, expressing his dislike in a much more physical manner. From the Associated Press:

"The next thing I know ... the kid raises his leg and stomps down on the snake's head," Braunstein said. "The snake started convulsing."

Braunstein said he saw a man grab the child and say, "This is why I don't take you anywhere," before disappearing.
