It’s been nearly 30 years since the wall came down and the communist East became the capitalist East. However, that doesn’t mean that our Russian cousins have adopted all our fancy American ways.

In fact, as you’ll see from these crazy photos, Russia is still another world.

 

Standing On The Corner Can Be Chilly

9gag

This guy must be really keen to get on the bus he’s waiting for. It looks like it’s 10 degrees below zero. The babushka with him has the right idea when it comes to clothes.

 

The Axe Arrow

9gag

We would imagine that this combination of weapons doesn’t work very well in practice, but we admire just how badass it looks in a photo.

 

Just Putting Some Fuel In The Tank

9gag

Yes, that’s a literal tank, and it’s on the forecourt of a gas station. We recommend that you don’t cut this guy off as he rejoins the highway.

 

4. With A Little Help From A Trolley

9gag

This looks like an accident waiting to happen. You lose a tire, so what do you do? Prop the van up on a sort of metal skateboard. Obvious, isn’t it?

 

Neighborhood Cinema Gets A Trial Run

9gag

We don’t think that this would ever catch on in America. We already have drive-in movies, you probably don’t need sit-in TV.

The headstand is impressive, albeit painful-looking. But why in the name of all that is good has his friend dropped his pants at the same time?

The idea of an Angry Birds game you can play in real life is awesome. The demonic-looking clown attendant? Not so much. We’ll pass.

It makes no sense at all to drive your all-terrain vehicle when you can lay it on its side and wedge it in a long haul truck.

 

The Witch’s Windshield Wiper

Runt of the Web

It’s a peculiar economy when you can afford to buy a BMW, but you have to implement this bizarre window cleaning system. Full marks for crazy.
