    I see industrial conditions in Russia have not improved since the first Five Year Plan. Oh, a correction. These guys weren’t shot for running out of the path of molten steel advancing on them.

      Generally speaking,Russian metallurgists‎ are very good. It looked like they had a leaky containment vessel, and were holding it over some spares on the floor. It was about to overflow, and then some kid hit a wrong switch, causing a vat that was still pouring to move along the tracks by mistake evidently. Either that, or they were trying to get it outside as quickly as possible.
      I still want to know the backstory as to how titanium for the A-12 SR-71 made it out of Russia…the late Seymour Bogdonoff might have had some answers to that.–his is one of the names you hear occasionally in aerospace, like Sega Zuppero, etc.

    Industrial Russia.

    I can never pass an opportunity to promote two of my favorite women in the world and their courageous, typical bad-ass Russian, ultra talented, photographic awesomeness.

    Elena’s ride through Chernobyl on her ZX1100: (yes – Chernobyl)

    Lana Sator’s abandoned industrial sites.

    Chilling quote on Elena’s new Ukraine site:

    “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

    (one word: Acorn)

    I feel like I have a vested interest in The Ukraine now that I’m sending my hard earned American dollars there for Amodel kits.

    About 1:57, I think I heard somebody blame the accident on Obama.

      Something about “obamarama.”

      What impresses me is how little freaking-out is occurring. “Oh, this again. ‘spose I better get some photos…”

      Don’t worry. Us “thinkers” know who’s fault it really was – George Bush’s of course.
