These Two Neighbors Got Into An Epic Snow Fight That You Have To See

These Two Neighbors Got Into An Epic Snow Fight That You Have To See

Blog
It's been a long time since I've been involved in a good snow fight. That's mainly because I live in a place where it's warm all year. While I like it here, every once in a while, I really wish I could pack a good snowball and lob it at a friend. Recently, two Russian men were shoveling snow when they must have thought the same thing, because they got into an awesome snow fight that you just need to see. The two are just shoveling away...until they decide to have some fun. Read More: You Like Snow? Maybe These 22 Reminders Of Powdery Hell Will Change Your Mind What a hilarious pair.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); First, a disclaimer: This article is not going to be suitable for anyone with a fear of heights. Seriously. If you're afraid of heights, turn back now. But if not, it's SO worth it.Alright, now that we have that out of way, let's dive in. If you had to wager where the world's tallest crane is currently located, where would you guess? If you picked China, then you're correct. The world's tallest crane is sitting atop the future Goldin Finance 117 building currently under construction in Tianjin, China. The rickety crane sits close to 2,000 feet above the ground. Russian thrill seekers Angela Nikolau and her boyfriend Ivan Beerkus decided it would be a good idea to climb t...

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); Urban exploration even under the best of circumstances is a risky proposition, but try telling that to photographer Mikhail Mishainik. Mishainik is well-known for his daring explorations of various abandoned industrial sites around Russia. While Mishainik has a dizzying array of photo sets to choose from, one of the most interesting is his exploration of abandoned ore mines in the Russian Ural Mountains. It wasn't until the outbreak of World War II that the Ural Mountains were mined. Mines of Ural googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); The crush for natural resource

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Chances are, you've found yourself stuck in traffic more than once or twice. It's terrible and such a waste of time, but sadly it's the way of the world (at least until robot cars hit the roads). Well, the next time you're stuck in traffic and hating on life, be thankful that at least you're not behind an exploding sewage truck... Just imagine how horrible that must have smelled. (via Reddit)This gives a whole new meaning to dump truck, am I right? Even imagining the smell of raw sewage in the hot summer sun is turning my stomach. Yuck.

This Footage Of A Soviet Grocery Store Right Before The Fall Will Make You Hungry

This Footage Of A Soviet Grocery Store Right Before The Fall Will Make You Hungry

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); It's no secret that life in the Soviet Union was tough. Food shortages and an oppressive regime made for uneasy conditions, to say the least. However, toward the end of the Soviet Union's reign, there was a slight thawing in relations with the West. That thawing (some might argue) led directly to the downfall of the entire Soviet way of life. While there are some things about the system that are truly missed by those who grew up under it, many facets of it are better off forgotten.Like the average Soviet grocery store, for example. It's hard to imagine a poorly stocked grocery store with more empty shelves than cans of food, but that's what people used to live with. Luck...

Being a refugee isn't easy -- and it's an experience most of us can't even begin to relate to. Even if you can make it safely to your destination, there are so many challenges to face in your new life. Often, the journey to your destination can be fraught with roadblocks, disappointment, and suffering. With the ongoing wars in Syria and Iraq, countless families attempting to flee to brighter and safer futures get stuck in foreign European countries due to complicated bureaucratic hurdles. Sometimes, governments work out the kinks in a reasonable amount of time. However, it's common for refugees get stuck in limbo with no end in sight. Hasan Abdul Ahmad's family of six has been stuck at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport for almost two whole months. ABC News ...
Ever Thought About Eating A Rat Burger? One Russian Restaurant Is Serving Them Up Right Now

Ever Thought About Eating A Rat Burger? One Russian Restaurant Is Serving Them Up Right Now

Blog
Rats aren't really what I think of when I think of food. Rats are disgusting! There is, of course, pizza rat, but I'm talking about eating the rats themselves. In Moscow restaurant Krasnodar Bistro, river rats have become the new delicacy. In addition to river rat burgers, they are also serving river rat hot dogs, dumplings, and river rat wrapped in cabbage leaves. So what is a river rat? It's actually a huge rodent called the coypu. Wikipedia They were originally only found in South America, meaning that their presence in Europe and Asia is invasive. Coypu, also called nutria, are considered pests. Restaurant owner and chef Takhir Kholikberdiev told The Guardian that people who are skeeved ...

You know those days where you think everything is going well, but then chaos erupts? The driver of this semitruck can definitely tell you a thing or two about that.

It's like the guy holding the phone just knew this would happen. Well, that was a complete disaster.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Although I've always humorously wished that I had the power of teleporting everywhere so I'd never be late again, I never considered the possibility that it could really happen. However, after seeing the footage below, I'm not sure what to think anymore. While this person was driving on a Russian highway, their dash cam picked up strange footage that can't really be explained. As a truck swerves to the left, it looks as if a woman appears out of nowhere. Many viewers believe this is evidence of time travel and teleportation. It could be that the woman had been standing in the road and the truck driver just didn't notice, but something seems off about that. Why wouldn't ...
