        Uh, even there you can find a flame war between Yanks and Euros It's scary to think what you can dig up in a similar discussion of an article on some B-345-polypropylethylene

        As for gays - I've heard there are gay cruises coming to St. Petersburg occasionally. I wonder if I get one of these groups once and the company wouldn't tell me who they are.

          Having talked to many gay guys here in San Francisco, I can reassure you that St Petersburg is a top vacation destination for them. There is also a great big tour that seems to very popular that they call "The Big Five", which is a package that includes Munich, Prague, Budapest, and St Petersburg. I can't for the life of me remember right now which is the fifth city.

After my wedding when I get my finances in order I will be purchasing the entire Oblast.

                Its OK, I have already convinced Zubkov to open up a timber division of Gazprom, and we have agreed in principle to a deal. Once deforestation is complete by 2012, Poland can have the place.

                  Everything I needed to know about the Russian people, I learned from Family Guy

                  It was a lot funnier when included in the flow of the show. It loses a lot of it comedic value when just showing a 22 second clip.

                    Deforestation by 2012? Good luck. With most of the able-bodied men either employed by the Russian Mafia or migrated to Israel, and the remainder being "engineers" or former fighter pilots/submarine captains, you just can't get a labor pool together! The younger women are all either dental assistants or have entered the "catalog" dating program. All you have left are the babushkas!

                      You don't really know who the babushkas are. They will beat roaches in surviving a nuclear war.

                        No doubt!

                        A great mystery to be examined by History Channel in the near future. Why and how did the Great Babushkas come about when Russian women are among the beautiful to grace this world?

                        It must be a conspiracy!!!!!!!!

                          Actually my plan calls for only 2 babushkas to work on her days off from selling flowers and gloves outside a metro station - so that is only 1 Sunday a month, that is the reason it will take until 2012. If it were a team of six working daily, it would be done by July of this year.

                            Basically Russian women see no point in caring too much about their looks when they are already old, and they are no longer hunting men or competing with each other. It's just a matter of cultural perspective. I'm wondering how the modern-day Western girls in their baggy tracksuits and feminist "I'm just fine without makeup and bodycare" attitudes will look like when they get older?

                            Well, on the other hand if of one of them looks pretty she really IS pretty without any" cheating"

                              Actually it was even translated and shown on Russian TV a couple of months ago. The clip included this episode and their conversation with Putin.
