UPDATE: For those of you who enjoyed the Russian bombard of one of their own cities, they’ve only bloody gone and done it again. I have little confidence in Russian naval capabilities any more
Russia. Russia, Russia, Russia. You know, I’m starting to think that Russia cultivates this reputation for doing bat-shit insane things on purpose. You can’t really do some of this shit by accident can you? Unless they’ve gotten so drunk from vodka (another stereotype! Hooray!) that they’ve said a collective “Fuck you!” to their brain cells and now pleasantly inhabit a world of make-believe, fuelled by potato-based spirits.
Now it seems obvious that when what you’re currently seeing is vastly different to what is actually there you should maybe slow down a little, keep things calm for a bit until the hangover comes, but not Russia! No, that’s when Russia starts to party! This means Russia is a great source of insane headlines. Your scores for the day:
Easy Mode: Just read the headlines.
Normal Mode: The first five.
Hard Mode: All of them.
Legendary Mode: All of them, plus get all the way through this video.
