    I can see the difference between Germans, Englishmen and French people in most cases.
    Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians and Poles all look the same to me.
    Poles at least speak different language, but with Russian-speaking Ukrainians and Belorussians there is no way to recognize their ethnicity unless they tell you.

    Don't forget to dig up your worms when going fishing.

    This one needs subtitles (currently autogenerated :undecide:).

    Went to vote today.
    Everything started as usual, "papers, please", etc. But then, scanner refused to accept my bulletin.
    A guy said it's technicall issue, they'll give me a new one and the current must be rejected. I wanted to make a joke, something about "did I vote for wrong candidate?" or so, but decided not to.
    The commission chief was a bit nervous because few observers were watching and everything must be done by procedure.
    They wrote "invalid" or something on a bulletin, as a result few people saw who I voted for. New paper was accepted without issues, though.

    Are people in Russia following the Navalny strategic voting plan?

    Why bother voting? You know the results before you vote.

    Hmm, 25% of votes counted.
    United Russia 44%
    CPRF 22%
    LDPR, Social-Democrats and "New People" (right-wing liberals) 6-8%

    Communists may get a lot more seats than they had previously.

    I understand its less popular in Poland now as it is in former USSR. When I was little I didn't even comprehend that the series was about a Polish tank crew. Still a good series.

    As tastes, worlds that people live in are different.
