English Russia asks:

Are you ready to make an immersion into the glorious life of Soviet Russia? If yes scroll down, this one today differs from other retrospective series we had before by the manner of compilation - it’s not a one collection but is assorted mix came from different sources. Each photo is an individual shot from the fate of some random human who lived in Russia at that times, sometimes those moments were sad, sometimes joyful and photos share this mood with us now: ...

Many of the photos have an educational angle to them, my favourite of these being this one:

Now that the West no longer abounds with fools who conclude from the fact that the USSR contained nice moments that it contained no nasty ones and that we should all surrender to it, we can enjoy nice ones like these.

Re all those squiggles on the pavement, it looks as if I may in due course become something of a maths teacher.  Not because I am especially good at this, but because maths teachers seem to be needed in my bit of the educationosphere.  But, as I often say here, I promise nothing.

Although, come to think of it, I’m not sure that the squiggles are maths, or at any rate only maths.  They could be physics, or rocket science, or earthquake-ology.  Or, to me, pretty much anything.
