This ad would be good, but:

1. Looking at the weather, it's not that freezing
2. The pole seems painted so it would be hard for the tongue to stick to it
3. Not sure if there is a pole at all at that position on the Read Square in Moscow :)

Уроки английскага

Фраза "doing french" дословно переводится как "заниматься чем-то французским". В некоторых случаях это обозначает занятие оральным сексом. Известная русская песня "Люби меня по-французски" приобретает интересные оттенки смысла

Уроки английскага

Русское выражение "небо и земля", которое обозначает сильные различия в характеристиках у обсуждаемых предметов, на английском очень часто звучит как "choc and cheese".
Я подозреваю, что choc = chocolate, а cheese в англоговорящих государствах это сыр и творог, включая его производные.

Норвежские ведьмы

Цитата из газетной заметки про Норвегию:

"При встрече с одинокой миловидной норвежкой в лесу незаметно, при разговоре с ней, бросьте взгляд вниз - не торчит ли хвост из-под юбки?"

Nice winter day in Manly

@AirNewZealand #kiwisceptics

Have just watched the video "Air New Zealand Presents: The Kiwi Sceptics. 'Lara Bingle', Episode 5":


Interesting concept to promote New Zealand.

The Guard (2011) Movie

Over the weekend have watched one of the funniest comedies - The Guard:


It's a great combination of good actors, clever scenario and humor.

A couple of months ago I started reading the book by Bertrand Russell "A History of Western Philosophy".
It was interesting to see that he was discussed in the movie.

Nice winter day in North Sydney

It's a nice winter day today +29 C.

Travel to NZ - Some Ideas

This post is about some ideas that may possibly be useful when someone is traveling to Queenstown and plan to do snowboarding or skiing.

1. Flights

We used Air New Zealand and it's a really good service. At the time I searched for direct flights from Sydney to Queenstown they were the only company that has got direct flights. All others were via Christchurch which wasn't an option for us.
Their Web site is easy to use and I like the design of the flight selection and the calculations and the process of buying tickets is pretty straightforward.

I traveled with Air New Zealand in 2008 also. Will use them next time I go to NZ for sure.

 2. Car Hire

I have reviewed the following companies:
2.1. Hertz
2.2. Budget
2.3. Avis
2.4. Thrifty

Budget seemed to have a better price deals at that time.

I think car rental is a good option, but you can easily travel in New Zealand without a car. Depending on your travel plans of course and what places you would like to visit.

3. Transport

Great…

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Over the weekend have watched Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Great movie with very clever story, wonderful actors and awesome music.
It's based on Roald Dahl's book Fantastic Mr. Fox



After watching the movie I have decided to read the book as well.

Уроки английскага

Сегодня на работу один индийский коллега пришёл в спортивной куртке Adidas. Я ему сразу рассказал про гопников с примерами из детства/отрочества. Он уже два раза после этого у меня спросил "Ессь сигарета??" С индийским акцентом, конечно же :))
Как обратно на родине побывал.

Мысли

Принимая во внимание частые высказывания пиздоболов из разных корпоративных уровней и просто любителей высказаться в расчёте на малограмотную публику о сферических ценностях в вакууме, решил сообщить как оно На Самом Деле.
Два основных слагаемых человеческого счастья: наличие тёплого жилища с отдельной спальней и санузлом, за которое не надо платить аренду или ипотеку, и шаговая доступность еды.

The Dark Knight Rises

Went to see The Dark Knight Rises a couple of days ago at the world's biggest IMAX theater.

Fantastic experience! The movie is great and in IMAX it feels like you are part of the process on the screen.
Never had such an involvement effect before.
Also there is a lot of good questions and ideas to think about in this awesome film.
Definitely a must watch in IMAX!
