3/23 Evening Thread


So, I was googling, trying to find out if I am in fact the first person in history to every construct the sentance "The Russians put land mines in my potatoes!" and I found this.

A Russian farmer has been convicted of planting landmines around his field to ward off trespassers.

Alexander Skopintsev, from the eastern region of Primorye near China's border, laid the three devices on his land after building them in his garage.

The 73-year-old had apparently been concerned about the frequent theft of potatoes from his farm.

He was arrested after an intruder set off one of the tripwire-style mines in August and was injured in the blast.

Sadly, there is no picture included of Alexander Skopintsev, but I'm going to go ahead and assume he's the Russian version of Epic Beard Guy.
