29 June 2018. ENJOY LIFE! Comandante Fidel Did… So Should You

________________________

Some people think that they have to be serious and earnest all the time. Comandante Fidel disagreed with them. In this photo from 1960, Fidel took a break from making the Revolution and went fishin’. He landed himself a 25-kilo marlin, lookit that! Now, there was a man who had his priorities straight… he knew when to work (and work hard) and when to relax (utterly and completely). Steve… this one’s for you… now, go and do likewise… grab a fishin’ pole and a cooler full of brewskies and enjoy the summer!

You’d be interested to know that Patriarch Kirill and Comandante Fidel were good and close friends. His Holiness sent a beautiful letter of condolence to the Castro family. He made an oligarch-loving rightwing cleric deliver it to the Cuban Embassy… and made the creepo-supremo smile when he did so… now, that’s REVENGE…

17 November 2012. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This, Visual Version… Goofy Russian Cops Unwind

______________________________

Goofy Russian coppers letting off steam at the station house. Oh… I forgot… I’m supposed to excoriate them for their supposed “excesses”. Trust me, most Russian cops are like their Western analogues; they go out, they do their jobs, they face a lot of danger, and they do it for peanuts. Before you attack these guys, let’s clean up our own house first… we could start with the Southern sheriffs who like roughing up union organisers and ordinary folks… that is, we’ve got dirt on our shields, too.

Live and laugh… that’s human…

The British newspaper Daily Mail reported that a scientist from the University of Sussex discoverd a formula for the ideal holiday. In his view, the meaning of holidays is to give the human body an energy boost and to help people return home refreshed and invigorated. For those residents of Moscow who can’t get out of town, we’ve prepared a list of the ten most exciting events of the summer in the parks.
