18 July 2011. Only in Russia… The “Healing Waters” of Lake Tus in Khakasiya… Don’t Knock It Until You’ve Tried It

******

Many people believe that the mud of Lake Tus in Khakasiya in Siberia (near the Krasnoyarsk Krai) is good for what ails ya, and that it promotes healing… who knows? They might be on to something… on the other hand, it could be a colossal goof. Give it a whirl… it appears harmless. Stranger things do work, after all…

Even floating in the brackish waters of Lake Tus supposedly has medicinal effects. Who knows until ya try it? This guy doesn’t seem to have a care in the world…

18 July 2011. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… Here’s What You Want to Say to All the “Religious Hobbyists” Out There…

This illustrates perfectly the frustration that many of us have with nattering konvertsy. Fie on their desire (and of some deluded ethnic Orthodox) to drag in heretical Sectarian ideas and practises amongst us. Don’t you just want to hurl when you see their insincere smiles? It wouldn’t be so bad if they’d keep it amongst themselves… but they want to contaminate the Church at large with their “purity” and “zeal”… God DO help us. I’m still thinking of the idiot who seriously named an OCA conference a “Church Growth Boot Camp”… you can’t get much more vacuous and fatuous than that! God willing, they’ll either grow up and shut up, or, they’ll leave us… either one can’t happen soon enough for me…

18 July 2011. No Comment Necessary… THIS is what the American Rightwing Fears…

The title’s simply Dawn on Tarir Square. Note well that the Foggy Bottom Beltway Commandoes (Potapov’s an Inside-the-Beltway Troll and Fathausen’s lusting to be one) all hate the movement towards real democracy, wherever it may be (including the USA… we can’t have anyone challenging the established political duopoly, dontcha know!)… whether they’re Internationalist Democrats or New GOP Neocon pukes. That tells you something about both of them, doesn’t it?
