bleedin' thing's huge m8s
but do not comprehend
It really is bloomin' massive
under the guise of better patient care.
The Russian dialect I speak is very formal and we use "assistant" as we have no word for "mate", mate.
'sassy assistant vagina"?
there are eleven
You have to remember just how big it is.
the eastern half anyway. nobody's ever been there, photos are just generic stock winter scenes and bands never tour there.
It's a myth created by the USA during the cold war to make Russia seem bigger and scarier than it actually is, so they can justify spending £££s on military projects to stop the commies invading.
I really have.
But no. I cannot grasp how fucking massive it is.
so I don't reckon it counts. Same with Canada. And Scotland.
Even if you cut off everywhere South of, say, Denmark, it's still terrifyingly huge. Also I find the border of Russia and North Korea really unsettling on Google Street View. It looks like a bad dream.
The abandoned old house, the deserted castle bit, the temples in the distance... really weird.
Gonna start watching out for Russians/North Koreans in general.
That the reason the Russian revolution happened was because you couldn't reasonable expect one man to have ultimate power over one sixth of the world's land mass. That stuck with me.
Then we learned that our history teacher had no problem whatsoever with believing the part of the Rasputin murder myth/legend about him being shot multiple times at close range with a handgun without dying because - and he's telling us this with his normal vacant expression and cheery grin - his sister was shot several times in the Dunblane school massacre and survived. Just dropped that out of nowhere. Fuck.
is it? i mean sure it's big but it's not as big as i think it could be.
Russians, great bunch o'Vlads
It's still fucking huge, but not as huge as it seems.
It just doubles back on itself over and over again. you can actually reach all the way from one side to the other if you come at it from the right angle
Not sure how I missed it previously.
which is what made me look at russia and shitpost on here about it again
Kaliningrad = Konigsberg
it's a miracle they've kept relatively quiet all these years
and no kunt even lives there, m8!
is how much of it they'd explored/conquored/annexed this huge area before there were any trains/motorised vehicles
