So same as everywhere else, but for some reason in Russian, all of them were noble houses, war leaders, or rich traders :)


I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Moar surnames of common people.

Shishkova - from ancient Russian word Shishko (Devil) - descendant of Russian medieval brigands.

Katasonova - surname of non-Russian people. Two origins are possible:
1. descendant of executor from Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
2. descendant of Turkic ancestor (surname can be translated as strong mountain or fortress) from conquered Golden Horde (despite Western myths about mongol rape IRL everything is vice versa - it's Russians conquer Golden Horde and totally assimilate/russificate Turkic population).

edit video

 

memory is a funny thing.  we spent a few weeks in soviet russia in a time before the wall came tumbling down.  all kinda amazing and unique experiences.  even so, when we thinks o' our trip to moscow, one o' the first images that springs to mind is the subways.  say what you will 'bout soviet era russia (and there is much we can say,) but the subways were amazing clean and almost surreal given our experience with chicago L and nyc subways.  ubiquitous chandeliers.  am not certain if the chandeliers is still part o' the decor in moscow subway stations, but seeing crystal chandeliers in subway stations is an image that has not dimmed in the least over the intervening decades.  so utter beyond our experience, and kinda pretty too.  am hoping there is still big crystal chandeliers in the moscow subway stations.

 

HA! Good Fun!

I was also surprised by the subways in St. Petersburg. Well, first I was shocked by how deep they were but after our journey to the center of the Earth I was impressed by how nice and clean they were. Dunno if they are that deep elsewhere or if that's just something particular to that area since I never went to another big city when I was there a few years back

Meanwhile in Ukraine. Ukrainian  ex-soldier ( veteran of war against East Ukrainian separatists ) kill two Ukrainian policemen. If your government use army for kill/destroy/rape own civilians  it's hard to explain to them why they can't do same thing in other cities of  homeland.

Killed policemen

Strange conclusion. Punishers (and just warriors)  better to die in war instead of stay alive. It's explain well why Russians prefer to utilize such people for Motherland in suicidal attacks  - higher Russian casulates cause better and safer life for society in result. We can predict a big problems for US society also in near future caused by flawless Murikan victories in Oil wars.
