Subject:[auto,quote,fun] Toyota Prius QotD*2
Time:09:04 am

Две прекрасные цытаты про Приус.

  1. The area around WTC 7 where I work has one of the densest concentrations of Toyota Priuses in New York: a lot of them were purchased by the governmental agencies. Whole blocks near Centre street are filled in the followng manner: Prius, Prius, Prius, rusty Dodge Ram, Crown Vic, Prius, Prius, Prius. Yesterday I was almost run over by a Prius double parked near an intersection: it started moving, but it did not register with me because it made no sound at all. Modern cars are very quet, but they all vrooom when starting up, and you kind of epect that from a parked car. This made me remember a scene in The Weeds, where gang leader U-Turn buys himself a Prius because it’s a great car for drive-by shooting: very quiet in electric mode, great for sneaking up on people.

  2. Запарковавшись у Гугла, найти свой Приус совершенно невозможно. Стоят ряды тёмно-серых Приусов, как бывалоча Волги на заднем дворе МинЭнергоМаша.

Как очевидно из моего ника, у меня два тотемных животных — свинья и мышь. Поэтому я конечно сразу загорелся, увидев это! Потом увидел ценник ($4,680) и почувствовал себя грёбаным нищебродом. Update: i_cherski разумно заметил, что такую фиговину можно сделать самостоятельно.

Но вещь прекрасная абсолютно. Обжедар.

Прекрасная частушка нашлась в статейке, via bahareva.

В мою горницу резную
залетели гуленьки.
Думала — пришла любовь,
оказалось — хуленьки.

Такие цытаты обычно очень любит ivand.

But what I found the most enjoyable was not that, but a little episode about Ilya Miloslavskiy, the book author’s illustrious ancestor. Boyar Miloslavskiy was sort of an olde tyme oligarch. In 1600s he headed all of Russia’s most important (and profitable) ministries, Military, Medical, Treasury, etc. He was a man of limitless appetites, and stole amazing amount of money. Miloslavsky’s boss, tzar Alexei was not bothered as much by stealing, as he was by amoral behavior.

Tolstoy quotes Dr. Collins, a royal physician and apparently Miloslavsky’s employee:

“At last perceiving Eliah too kind to some of his Tartar and Polish slaves, he urged him (being an old Widdower) either to marry or refrain the Court. For the Russians highly extoll marriage, partly to people their Territories, and partly to prevent Sodomy and Buggery, to which they are naturally inclined, nor is it punished there with Death. A lusty Fellow about eight years since being at this beastly sport with a Cow, cry’d to one that saw him ‘Ne Mishchay’, do not interrupt me; and now he is known by no other name over all Muscovy, than ‘Ne Mishchay’ ”.

Третья на моей памяти инкарнация флэш-моба про ЖЖ-интересы. Решил поучаствовать и получил от aurisТыреха следующее:

  1. занудство как способ эпатажа: позаимствовано у aurisВити Левина. Как мне кажется, отражает мои особенности поведения в определённых жизненных ситуациях.
  2. хтонические болезни: ничего не означающее, но прикольно звучащее словосочетание, придуманное, кажется, в общении с aurisПчелом.
  3. идиотская самодовольная музыка: Позаимствовано у aurisМагера. Ну, понятно в общем — символ всемирного братства людей, слушающих всякую хуйню.

Всё. Есть у меня интересы и поинтереснее. Теперь, если хотите, отметьтесь в комментах и я выберу три ваших интереса для последующего публичного саморазоблачения.
