Russia's Unknown Trans-Siberian Train

The facts are the Russia's rail system is very well developed. ;)

GOOOOOOOD MORNING BIDET-NAM! This is your pilot speaking, Cap'n Brandon. I thought I'd start out our flight of fancy today with a piece of obscure USSR history about trains, because we all know who is unnaturally enamored with Choo-Choos, don't we, Jo-E-Bay-Bee? Yesterday's flight started out from a movie set in the desert SW and took us deep into Russiagate territory uncovering what looks suspiciously like another one of Hillary's revenge killings, which may leave Jack Ryan, CIA analyst, the Hunt for Red October guy, AKA Alec Baldwin in some legal jeopardy, but I doubt it.

My night table reading is indicating a busy flight today with some interesting waypoints along the way. The view out the hangar door at the secret airbase on the back shore of Lake Logan, tells me that we had a hard frost last night, which flight service failed to mention, so we'll have to look out for ice on the wings.

The pre-flight inspection is done, so let's strap this bird on and see where this non-sanctioned flight takes us. Have fun and thank you for flying Air America.

They got a lot of practice railroading Christians and White Russians to the Siberian gulags.

Let's divert from our flight plan for a bit so I can introduce you to my buddy's friend, Aleena. She's a real trooper and total babe! She can by my interpreter any damn day.

You need to see the movie, Doctor Zhivago and you might find it entertaining and informative.

en.wikipedia.o rg/wiki/Russian_Revolution

The October Revolution, officially known as the Great October Socialist Revolution under the Soviet Union, also known as the Bolshevik Coup, the Bolshevik Revolution, the October Uprising, the October Coup or Red October, was a revolution in Russia led by the Bolshevik Party of Vladimir Lenin that was instrumental in the larger Russian Revolution of 1917–1923. It was the second revolutionary change of government in Russia in 1917. It took place through an armed insurrection in Petrograd on 7 November 1917. It was the precipitating event of the Russian Civil War.

The Bolsheviks tried shooting members of the royal family. But the bullets would not penetrate since they had sewn all of their jewelry into their clothing. So they were shot in the head. ;)

You need to see...

...My buddy's friend Aleena. She's multi-lingual, in all senses of the term, hot as a firecracker and has covered a lot of the same ground that I have.

Former USSR, Eastern Europe, North Africa, Cuba and points unknown. Why do you think I like Slavs so much? Just make sure to cover your webcam. I've learned my lesson...

Everybody needs a cover story. That department is two floors up, sir.

You can never get too much Aleena. Unless you're somebody's wife.

Right now there are advertisements from Slavic dating services. Every one of them wants to come to America. Good luck. I do not have the cash to give out to pay your way here.

Oh yes. I know about the webcam scammers too. :-/

I'm trying to coerce a wild-haired Senator to spend the weekend with me. I could tell her all kinds of goob secrets. She'd never be the same. She might even have to change her name plaque from Mrs. to Miss after me.

She's cute as pie, but she's a doctrinaire communist. She just adores Castro and Che. I'm not kidding. Check out the video of her visiting Cuba.

Yeah, I know. Edited for harshness.

I have a friend who had an online Russian girlfriend. She sent him beautiful photos and all. After several weeks of online romance she told him she needed him to send her some money or her internet service would be cut off. My friend is pretty smart, so he started investigating "her" further. Turns out she wasn't really there -- it was just a scammer using her pictures and pretending to be her.

Sounds like fun -- but I'm a happily married man, so I can't think about trying to reform her.
