here’s a crow using a jar lid for a sled, if you’re interested in that sort of thing. i know i am.
it’s the only sort of thing i’m interested in, to be quite honest
But for real though, this video makes me feel more connected to life itself.
When the Russian president put a bid in for Sochi to host the games, he was hoping that the feeling of unity and allegiance the Soviets felt towards the state would reappear among today’s Russians. But his near-sighted desire to recreate the image of Russia as a strong, autonomous empire might have ultimately gotten in the way of rebuilding a sustainable city. Some research groups and experts have little faith that Sochi could be the dream destination that it once was, let alone that it could take care of its new infrastructure in a way that is both responsible and profitable.
Putin’s here-and-now image is evident. Olympics stadiums and hotels weren’t created for long-term profits, according to Martin Muller, a professor of geography at the University of Zurich. Muller estimated that the Russian public is paying 90% of the cost of the games, so you’d think they would want the infrastructure to last.
