Russian Climbs Skyscraper With No Safety Gear

Some may remember “the most dangerous job in the world” video that went viral of maintenance workers climbing to the literal top of a skyscraper. Well, this crazy Russian guy outdid that video by climbing Stalin’s Skyscraper in Moscow, with no safety gear at all. He wore a helmet camera, so get ready for a crazy trip.

Real-Life ‘Fight Club’ Shows How Russians Like To Relieve Stress (Video)

Here we have about 60 Russians forming a beautiful bond in one of the only ways men know how: unarmed combat.

According to the Metro, a few upstanding citizens from the towns of Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg got into a heated discussion on Facebook and soon realized the most satisfying way to quash the conflict was through a massive brawl.

There were 38 men from each town, all of whom seemed to emerge as friends.

The local Russian news site Ura.ru explained,

We are talking about Russian fun. Participants gathered on buses, greeted each other, and after a scuffle expressed gratitude for their participation. No one was seriously hurt.

It seems that once they agreed enough stress had been relieved on both ends, the two sides shook hands and walked away.

‘Can we get it on PPV?’: Emboldened ISIS threatens to invade Russia

http://twitter.com/#!/ShelleyCuz/status/520983244620451840

National news coverage is rightfully focused on ISIS’ move to take the strategically important Syrian-Kurdish town of Kobani on the Turkish border. An article in Ria Novosti caught the eye of focus group expert Frank Luntz, who shares that ISIS has threatened to invade Russia as well.

In a telephone conversation with his father, an Islamic State (IS) commander, Tarkhan Batirashvili, also known as Omar al-Shishani or Omar the Chechen, stated that the militant group plans to invade Russia, Bloomberg reported.

“He said “don’t worry dad, I’ll come home and show the Russians,’” Bloomberg quoted Temur Batirashvili, the father of the IS commander, as saying Thursday.

“I have many thousands following me now and I’ll get more. We’ll have our revenge against Russia,” Omar the Chechen told his father, according to Bloomberg.

For once, Westerners can get behind the aspirations of ISIS leadership.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin I'd love to see them try that. Pass the popcorn.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin With winter approaching??? Those fools!

— James (@Honeymoons_Over) October 11, 2014

@frankluntz @adambaldwin Helpful tip to ISIS: Invade in winter. Don't read any history first.

— GregEsq (@GregEsq) October 11, 2014

@FrankLuntz They should totally do that. In fact, every winter they should be offered a 2 week invasion head start.

— Josh Zaretsky (@JoshZ2012) October 11, 2014

@FrankLuntz Just before winter. Good call.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin Can we get it on PPV?

— Steven Butkus (@Arkhound) October 11, 2014

@FrankLuntz yeah, good luck with that. Ask Napoleon and Germans in WWII how that turns out. The terrain & weather alone would beat them.

— Brent Hatley (@brenthatley) October 11, 2014

@FrankLuntz @FairOaksTrader Putin single handedly will stop that from happening.

— andy (@AndybingAnd) October 11, 2014

@FrankLuntz @FairOaksTrader Good Luck! Putin is not Obama!!

This Look Inside A Russian Mental Asylum Will Chill You To The Bones.

There are few things creepier than a run-down mental asylum. A run-down mental asylum in a shady part of a foreign country? Yeah, that’s definitely creepier.

Earlier this week, Reddit user twoeazy posted a few photos from his stay in a mental asylum in his home country of Russia. Twoeazy says he was sent there after an interview with a psychiatrist prior to his mandatory military service. Here’s how he tells it: 

In Russia, we have compulsory recruitment. Every recruit must go through a course of doctors to check if he’s somehow ill. So, when I had an honest conversation with psychiatrist, he decided to send me to asylum for a whole month for a bunch of reasons.

Twoeazy said the asylum is broken up into three floors. The first floor is for people with severe mental health issues, the second and third floors were for people with milder conditions. If you were admitted to the third floor you were allowed to have a computer, cell phone, camera, and even musical instruments, he said.

Upon his admittance to the asylum twoeazy said he was initially sent to the second floor and slept in a hallway until space opened up on the third floor. Here is his bed in the hallway with a feline visitor.

Believe me, you don’t want to know what’s in this box.

Here are a couple of the paintings in one of the stairwells of the asylum.

According to twoeazy, no one could remember who painted these murals. He suspects that it was a patient.

This one is pretty amazing.

Another depressing hallway, this time during the day.

This is a picture of the bathroom during the day. It’s still nearly pitch black. This is why, said twoeazy, that they never turned off the light in there.

This is twoeazy’s roommate from the asylum. He said this picture was taken as his roommate announced that he was going out for a walk. Apparently he walked around the hospital for four hours after this was taken.

Staying in a mental ward must be a traumatic experience, no matter who you are. But if that asylum is in terrible condition? It’s even worse. I can’t believe what some people have to go through.
