Wait. Russian? Style? Does not compute, Comrade.

Well with one possible exception. Makes me think of a quote from a Neal Stephenson book

“Ask a Soviet engineer to design a pair of shoes and he’ll come up with something that looks like the boxes that the shoes came in; ask him to make something that will massacre Germans, and he turns into Thomas Fucking Edison.”

Do tell more about the sharp, pointy thing. Seems somehow too fancy to be Soviet.

Thanks, Felix. I found somebody in Slovakia selling Air knives.

They look really nice. I might treat myself to one of these: https://www.euro-knife.com/air/knife-air-gepard-birch/

Nice pictures, but to be really Russian, youd have to include cheap rotgut, and crippling depression. :ugeek: :lol: :mrgreen:

I thought Yogi was Hungarian. Can't speak to his use of rotgut or depression.

Not sure.... His blog does not seem to have been updated since 2011, which is to say not since before I used it to contact him and invite him over here.

/heh/ Yep. That was a vamp off the rotgut and depression comment. Hope he's keeping well.

Screw that guy, he's a f'in' troublemaker. He'd start shit, then hide behind a certain ex-admin's skirts. I for one am glad he's gone. :evil:
