+Nathan G for j00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjtE8JWokdI (From Likhaya to Volgograd aka Stalingrad). It's an hour of nothing but train tracks and music as you would hear in Russia, I'm pretty sure it's house, but I could be wrong. The whole video plays at 7x recorded speed, so no, they really don't go that fast IRL. The higher number trains are older and slower, so this is a really slow train. Idea for your next set: scrape the video off of teh YouTubes and use it as a background video in da club.

Lenin.  Stalin.  Painted on top of an Aztec Calendar.  Your argument is invalid.
There's an exhibition here in #Irkutsk  of gifts given to various Soviet leaders.  The description of this one says: "Gift to the 20th congress of CPSU (Communist Party of the Soviet Union), from <<Front for the Liberation of the Working Class of Mexico>>"

Fun with math.  This is a box of Russian generic ibuprofen, 20 pills in the box, each pill is 200 milligrams, which is the max you can buy over the counter in the US.  Target has a box of 24 200mg pills for $1.22 listed on their website, I paid 14 rubles for this box.  XE.com converts 14RUR out to about $0.37USD.  Huh what #WTF  ?  Also, you can buy 400mg and 600mg ibuprofen over the counter here, I had to specifically ask for 200mg.

 A ladybug. Reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Your argument is invalid. For reference, this is the part when Ron gets his first chance to fondle Harry's Firebolt. #OhMy

Bootleg Soviet Beatles albums.  The "official" versions of these weren't published in the Soviet Union until 1983 or so; consider these albums were released in the West between 1964 and 1968.  I think my personal favorite is the cover for Magical Mystery Tour, it's just off enough to make you look at it and go "huhwhat?"  Irkutsk State University Library collection.
