Misconceptions About Russians
1. Everybody is a rocket scientist or a spy
In all honesty, when I first packed my bags a few years ago and told my mom fake rolex I was moving to Moscow, what I wasn’t telling anyone was the true reason I wanted some of that awesome action! All the stories I had ever heard about Russia always involved a cover up, some forged documents, secret agencies, and even the dullest stories had at least a nuclear bomb somewhere, waiting for someone to push that red button with weird looking letters all over it.
And at first i did see spy stuff like that everywhere! The cab driver looked a little suspicious, the lady in the bread shop had that look as if she had just completed her hourly update with the KGB in the back room of the bakery. My head was fantasizing 24 7 and I lived in a movie for about 6 months.
Unfortunately, the truth turned out to be different. Almost nobody is a rocket scientist here. The most popular occupations are Economist, Manager and Lawyer.
The business of espionage and misleading information is very much alive. If you d fake rolex on’t believe me, ask this guy. The name has changed from KGB to FSB, and the’re fake accent has probably gotten better, but there’s still jokes about the KGB building (only 4 stories high) being the tallest building in Moscow. This has to do with the fact you can see Siberia from it’s basement, you know, cos of the incredible gadgets in the12 stories underground.
There’s also a secret underground metro, called Metro2
It’s parralel to the regular metro and connects the Kremlin to the FSB buiding (it was probably the only building with a 12 story basement,so they just went with it), the goverment airport and some unknown little village called Ramenki. The latter, obviously, should the gentlemen of the government find their throuserd have ignited due to vigorous fabrications. (liar,liar pants on fire)
6. Vodka, vodka, vodka.
Myth: Russians drink too much. Truth: Russians drink more than you can imagine in your wildest dreams. Of course, not all of them, and of course not all the time, but there are records of people who drank 40 days without a break, and wh fake rolex en i say drank I don’t mean frappucino’s with a dash of cherry liquor.
It’s not everywhere you can see a business woman on the way to work drinkin fake rolex g beer to get in shape after last night, or the dancing policemen from earlier. It’s also a great feeling to know that if it’s a holiday you’re welcome to every party. And if it wasn’t for all the vodka and cucumbers, I would probably never have seen the two old twins dancing on the red square, Masha’s grandfather playing the accordeon in his pyjamas, Misha and Grisha singing the worst version of “La isla bonita” or gotten this for my birthday:
