The sullen, old-timer old Murlik and the thin black nouveau riche Djinn. He was taken to raise the tone of Murlik, but instead of the cat’s tone ours,…

It is not by chance that the North Korean “beloved comrade” at one time preferred the railroad to go on a visit to Moscow – he probably wanted to get indelible impressions from the vast expanses and beauty of the Russian land. For sure, received. The most, that neither is, indelible. Charles Darwin would also be happy to travel to Russia by train if he had the opportunity.

All covered with greenery is like? From the cycle “Shuttle bikes from Karpov”

I have one friend – Anatoly Karpov, a serious man, an industrialist who owns more than one production, mainly related to making various gizmos that are extremely necessary in everyday life. I will say so, a wonderful person, a great hard worker and clever, but he has one small drawback. He only needs a little drink – and from where it comes, this solid person turns into some kind of a broken guy and starts telling incredible stories about those…

How to use gravity?

How to use gravity?

Gravitation, or gravity, is possessed by all objects in the universe. Scientists say that the whole thing is in elusive particles – gravitons, the number of which depends either on the mass, or on the energy of the object. In my opinion, complete garbage.

Just people wanted the Sun to always illuminate the Earth,…
