Germany, now is the time to attack! But seriously, is it just me, or is Russia crazier than usual? According to YahooNews, the mayor of Moscow, Yuri Luzhkov, is promising to keep it from snowing this Winter. I'm not kidding.
For just a few million dollars, the mayor's office will hire the Russian Air Force to spray a fine chemical mist over the clouds before they reach the capital, forcing them to dump their snow outside the city.
Some are not thrilled about the idea. For one, those who live in the Moscow suburbs are not thrilled about having extra snow. And secondly, environmentalists have not yet given an endorsement.
And thirdly, WTF?! It was bad enough when the Chinese were shooting at the sky to make it rain before the Beijing Olympics. Moscow is in the North. It snows there! If you don't like the snow, don't live there.
And, seriously, Moscow without snow is just down right un-Russian. What will your poets write about?
