Topic: why is russia so big?

i was looking at a world map at the visa office this morning and russia is huge

whats in all that land?  how come we only ever hear about moscow, what about the rest of all that land?  whats going on in there?  how come we dont hear about all of that stuff on the right above asia?

how come they get to hav so much land?  why didnt anyone go and conquer it?

i bet there's loads of stuff hidden in all that land...

just look at how much of it there is compaired to all the other bits of land on this planet:

Re: why is russia so big?

because no one wants siberia.

it really is the middle of butt fu<king nowhere.

if you've ever flown over it, you'll know what i mean. absolutely fu<k all there.

apart from the gulags. but i think they're all gone now.

i think there's also a lot of nuclear missile base/control areas there... but since september 11 all the websites that used to have sattelite pictures of them have been shut down.

a bit like the american mid-west. but bigger.

Re: why is russia so big?

Russian is longer and thinner on the Peter's Map

Africa is huge on the same map

Re: why is russia so big?

People have tried to invade Russia.

Napoleon tried and failed. It was too cold.

Hitler tried and failed. It was too cold.

As for why it's so big....

:shock:

Re: why is russia so big?

Re: why is russia so big?

That's not fair on Ben - I think he must have the best brain of us all if it can take that much of a battering and still work.

Re: why is russia so big?

Russia's cool, easy to colour in on map during geography lessons, I always preferred to go for a 'Stalin red' 

Sparky, Siberia is the place were Russians send people like you, a few years in the gulag would put some muscles on your bones, you'd have a ring piece that you could pass Jupitor, Saturn, Neptune & Mars through.

It'd be like a planetary love-bead  :shock:

Napoleon tried and failed. It was too cold.

Hitler tried and failed. It was too cold.
:shock:

it's cos they were short

A day without blood is like a day without sunshine.

Re: why is russia so big?

so all that land is just sitting there being cold...?  its just empty free land?

why are we spending money on trying to make mars habitable when itd probably be cheaper and easier to make russia habitable

oh hang on, with the way things are going with our ozone, itll be like australia in a few years time  roll

im not your type, im not inflatable

Re: why is russia so big?

Sparkey = Weak arse socialist who doesn't understand the concept of corruption = swift deportment to siberia.

Not too sure about the love bead thing going on here Steve.

P1ss weak

i don't think the australian outback gets down to -70c...

although i don't think siberia gets up to +50

probably goes someway to explain why no one wants to live in either of them...

Re: why is russia so big?

The following information in top secret confidential property of the world government.

The reason Russia is so big is that many many moons ago a parakeet descended upon the earth and came upon a bunch of pigeons.  Pigeons walk a little funny - thrusting their heads forwards and backwards as they go.  The parakeet found that playing loud, repetitive music to them made them walk faster and wobble their heads even more.  But the energy thus generated caused their brains to expand within their tiny skulls and the flock of mad, pink-eyed pigeons took over the sound system to catapult them and their fellows into ever-higher states of consciousness.  Because of the peculiar frequency of the music they played only their brains were affected (everyone else just found it annoying).  So governments of the world united (especially the UK) to banish them somewhere cold where they would hopefully freeze to death.  Only Russia was big enough for this as by now the pigeons were many (historical note: and it was practical as at the time Russia was inhabited by the Japanese who didn't make efficient use of it due to their agoraphobia - so they were granted Japan by the Aztecs)

So, what do you wanna do?

Have you been to Australia, Lisa?  :shock:

Re: why is russia so big?

do you know much about the green house effect ben?  :shock:

tania, thanks for that  big_smile

it takes me back to my question, wouldnt it be easier to try and make russia habitable rather than mars?

im not your type, im not inflatable

Re: why is russia so big?

space race between russia and usa wouldn't be much use if all the maericans did was make more of russia inhabitable would it.

Plus you can't make it habitable cos there are tousands of discarded, broken and leaking ICBM's in that barren land which is totally polluted. the only thing you'll find there is Osama Bin Laden with a slightly green tinge looking for said weapons whilst the rest of the world stays the fvck away.

CNN did a special out there a few years back, went & visited some old trapper who turned out to be a Hero of the Soviet Union for the amount of Germans he sniped during the the battle for Stalingrad, old coot was a loon, mad as a window, claimed he could still take a Jerry down at 1000m  8)

stoopid, that's how stoopid people speel stoopid
