Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

Russia, Yamal Peninsula. The ‘chum’- the Nenets’ dwelling – is as mobile as they are. It consists of long sticks, and stitched reindeer skins stretched over it. The image was taken by Vladimir Alexseev.

The .Gif Friday Post No.523 – LAX ETA 5hrs 7min, Russian Airforce BS Taunts & Cat Opines

That’s a Russian intercept fighter that flew within 5 feet of a US surveillance plane, crossed in front, and forced the US aircraft to fly through turbulence on 29 January 2018. The Cold War is not over.

Nothing Much Happened Today.

Sunday, 28 January 2018

Apparently that’s a Russian missile, fired into the Ukraine in 2014.

В Донецкой области снаряд «Урагана» пробил машину сил АТО, но не взорвался (ФОТО)
Украинские силовики, которые находятся в районе села Дмитровка Донецкой области, были обстреляны из российских “Ураганов”. К счастью, одна из ракет, попавшая в штабную машину, не разорвалась.
Как сообщает Андрей Захаров, «Дмитровка, база 12 БТрО. Очередная “петарда”, купленная сепарами в “магазине”.

Via Google Translate:

In Donetsk region, the projectile “Hurricane” struck the machine of the ATU forces, but did not explode (PHOTO)
The Ukrainian siloviki, who are in the area of the village of Dmitrovka in the Donetsk region, were fired from the Russian “Hurricanes”. Fortunately, one of the missiles that got into the staff car did not explode.
As reported by Andrei Zakharov, “Dmitrovka, the base 12 of the BTRO. Another “petard”, bought by the segregated in the ‘store.'”

Soviet Volga 1962 GAZ-22 Low Rider Prototype Mod

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

Here’s an un-modified 1962 Volga GAZ-22. I don’t think it had a cast-iron carburetor, but who knows?

From Wiki:

“Only those shipped abroad for export were sold to private customers. All domestic station wagons/estates, with rare exceptions, were never available for private ownership. The Soviet rationale was that allowing such a car to citizens would also make it too available and popular with dealers in the grey market economy [which] was allowed but limited by the state.”

USS Porter

Monday, 10 April 2017

ATLANTIC OCEAN (April 15, 2015) The guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) pulls alongside the Military Sealift Command dry cargo and ammunition ship USNS Medgar Evers (T-AKE 13) before a replenishment-at-sea. Porter is participating in Joint Warrior, a United-Kingdom led training exercise designed to provide NATO and allied forces with a unique multi-warfare environment in which to prepare for global operations.

There’s an interesting timeline posted at USNI regarding the missile attack on the Syrian military airbase on 6 April 2017 that I haven’t seen elsewhere, and it gives hints about the strategy behind it… and more.

Nothing Much Happened Today.

Via Google Translate:

In the Chelyabinsk military brought “warm weather”

In connection with the cooling of caring the military brought to Chelyabinsk whole body “warm weather.” The information published on the portal picabu.

In fact, the military truck was taken to the runway a huge load, shaped like a small “sun”, painted by a child or cartoon flowers Sunflower. It is not known what kind of load, but most likely in the photo shows the nozzle for cleaning of road transport. Why are engaged in military delivery is unknown. Just do not understand why it is necessary to deliver the goods to the first runway truck after dump on the road, and after apparently uploaded to military aircraft.

The portal pikabu photo caused a lot of comments and jokes related to the “delivery to the warm weather.”

“Trained in camps NATO fighters with the latest American weapons. Kiev, Ukraine.”

It appears to be a Russian propaganda/snark website, but that caption is amusing. You might want to run it through Google Translate instead.]

Saturday Matinee – Solar System Scale Model, Bonya & Kuzmich, & Billy Woodward

Saturday, 26 September 2015

Building a scale model of our solar system [via]. Were the Earth the size of a marble, take a guess as to how big this model was.
(Hint: Bigger than that.)

Not sure what to make of this, but it kept my attention. It’s titled “Kiesza – Hideaway (Bonya & Kuzmich Russian parody).” I don’t know who Kieza is, but I’m not impressed and don’t care much either. [Found here.]

Since our Saturday Matinee Post is typically eclectic, let’s shift gears.

Billy Woodward is an anomaly – part country, part country blues, part rockabilly. Although I was looking for a video of another song (I Got Bit) this’ll do.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more stuff.
