Родители и компьютер

January 23rd, 2016

Нашел вот такое уморительное видео про то как мама пытается сыну отправить файл по емейлу. Концовка вообще убойная, не ожидал прихода бабушки. Советую всем посмотреть.

Конечно у меня мама более продвинутая, она сама умеет книги на планшет скачивать, но когда-то и она вот так с компьютером общалась.

Kiev Metro – rooftop view

September 2nd, 2015

And that, my friends is how to catch a free train ride. Not just jumping the gates, or evading the inspectors, thats kids play. Sydney, you thought riding on the metal hook between carriages was hip, try tiding on the roof.

Обережно, двері зачиняються, наступна станція Лiвобережна.

PS: Please don’t try this at home kids.

In Latvia, ice spins you

August 17th, 2015

What do we do when its really cold and we run out of potatoes? We cut ice with a chain-saw and then make the ice spin, of course! Now I know what to tell my friends when they ask me what is Latvia famous for.

Aussie slang

July 29th, 2015

One thing all my international friends can agree on is that it is hard to understand Aussies speak. They generally speak too fast, don’t pronounce words clearly enough, and shorten everything. And I mean everything!

This video was shown to us at the UTS Accomplish: Adapting to the Australian workplace lecture/ seminar, and over 80% of the students in the room had no idea what they said in the last sentence. Watch it yourself and see how accustomed to Australia you have become.

If the Internet was a High School

March 26th, 2015

Imagine if all the website we browse daily were living people, teenagers in fact, attending a high school. Wouldn’t that be an awesome combination of personalities! There have been numerous videos showing our websites as real people with personalities, but I feel that this one definitely tops them all! Take a look and see how true most of these depictions are.

Стоп Хам

March 25th, 2015

Stop Ham

Стоп Хам (Stop a Douchebag) is a youth movement which fights against traffic rule violators and arrogance on the roads of Russia. They fight against people who park their cars in the middle of the road, sidewalks or even pedestrian crossings. They also fight against people who think they are the smartest and drive on the sidewalk to save time and go around a traffic jam. Why do they this? Well if its not them then who? Who is going to fix this mess that roads in Russia have become? There is a saying in Russian: “We only have 2 problems in this country: Idiots and Roads”.

What languages sound like

December 8th, 2014

We know that learning languages is hard work, and whenever we hear people speak in a language that we have yet to master (or even start learning) we try to imitate them, which of course causes a lot of laughter and comments saying: “We don’t speak like that!”

Well here is a YouTube video of a Japanese guy doing an impression of that foreign language sound like to him. He is pretty spot on for most of them!

FIFA 2018 Logo

October 31st, 2014

In 2012 it was decided that the next big world football event – FIFA 2018, will be held in Russia! And last week the official logo was unveiled from a place far far away. If you think of Russia, what comes to mind? Snow, bears, vodka and AK-47? Maybe for some of you, but for educated people, Russia is a symbol of feudal culture, old and deep history, and of course the conquering of space in the modern age. So the announcement of the FIFA 2018 logo, was made from the International Space Station on the 29th of October.

With this logo, the creators want to show the heart and soul of Russia, and I believe they did a great job with that.

Its 4 years away, but I am already excited to see how this whole tournament will play out.

August 27th, 2014

Being a developer, you are the only person on the team who has any idea of how things are actually done and the boundaries. Watch this skit and see for yourself just how ridiculous company meetings can get.
