Fear & Loathing in Las Ukras

Russian matryoshkaThis post was sponsored by a Russian drug cartel.


In Russia there’s a running joke about ‘British scientists‘ because many pseudo-scientific or yellow journalism articles (in Russia) refer to ‘British scientists’: “according to British scientists unicorns do eat marshmallow pies”. It looks like ‘British scientists’ will be accompanied by ‘British journalists’.


I slightly modified a quote from the film based on Hunter Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” (btw the book and the film are very popular in Russia):

We had 2 bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, 5 sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a case of horilka… How long could we maintain? I wondered… This same lonely steppe was the last known home of Chikatilo; will he make that grim connection when my attorney starts screaming about a column of Russian armored vehicles and huge GRAD rocket comes down on the car?


I’ll just leave it here & here.

Any ideas?
