Russian Unorthodoxy

RussianUnorthodoxy Photo Here are some strange, odd, weird, definitely 'unorthodox' facts, trivia and superstitions about Russia and Russian culture. I am reminded as an example of the sign in the lobby of a Moscow hotel across from a Russian Orthodox monastery that is supposedly translated as follows:

"You are welcome to visit the cemetery where famous Russian and Soviet composers, artists, and writers are buried daily except Thursday."

Who knows if it's true though. It was one of those Internet examples of "Badly Translated Signs From Around the World." Who knows if this one's true either, from the annals of the 1999 Darwin Awards:

MOSCOW, Russia - A drunk security man asked a colleague at the Moscow bank they were guarding to stab his bullet-proof vest to see if it would protect him against a knife attack. It didn't, and the 25-year-old guard died of a heart wound. (It's good to see the Russians getting into the spirit of the Darwin Awards.)

In any event the following items are certainly unorthodox. And Russia-themed.

It is physically impossible for a woman to bear 69 children.
This is probably in the same category as all these Russian
oldsters claiming to be 125 and being only 95 or so.
