Complaining about American capitalism while hacking the 2016 election to elect the biggest capitalist pig president.

That old Soviet flag that they used to have. It says Russia more than the red, white and blue ever did.

I once saw a bunch of these former Soviet propaganda posters warning about work safety. They were pretty creepy and graphic. They showed workers getting their hands chopped off or suffering head trauma when a sledge hammer fell on their forehead, with blood gushing out and everything, and even a woman looking horrified as she gets her hair caught in some machinery. She had her hair tied back but her bangs are exposed and twisting around some metal pole thing that's probably going to take her scalp off along with her hair. 8O

For some reason I just really love the word "babushka". It means "grandmother" or "elderly woman", and also the Russian headscarves they traditionally wear.

There was also an unknown woman known as the Babushka Lady, who was believed to have taken photos of JF Kennedy's assassination.
