    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    I saw a photograph some time ago where he was kissing a horse. He must be an animal lover...

    Dolphins are bastards. I saw a documentary about them once where they played tennis with the corpses of baby porpoises.

    Those are actually the new Russian Submarines. Less crying families to deal with when you decide not to rescue downed sailors.

    They're trying to tell Putin that the world is about to end. And that the mice have no more money to commission a new one.

    Putin is often photographed with animals, and in 'action man' situations. He's quite the outdoors-man, considering he's a politician.

    My feeble attempts cannot hold a candle to the Great Lord. Always in your honor, Gregoshi-sama, who assuredly descends from Ahemha the Pun. I don't think I'll ever be rid of you; whenever I hear a good one, you spring to mind, along with a hearty grin.

    Well, it ain't dancing with wolves, but just another day for Russia's action hero.

    Maybe it is just using some peoples belief that if animals think he is ok maybe he isn’t all bad?

    Now, wasn’t there some German Politician in the 30s and 40s who liked being photographed with his dog, or something?

    evidently, whereas the rest of the world's people play with dolphins, there in Russia, the Dolphins play with you. what more can I say?

    let's all face it, everything is backwards in Russia: Tanks ride you, Horses do, and Wiseau tears Lisa apart there as well.
