Those Kooky EU Characters! (Updated)

Where do those crazy EU guys go to drown their sorrows after the Irish No vote? Send those nutty clowns to Siberia! Seriously! Get 'em outta here! Wow, that's an interesting eight-sided pyramid....

...but not as interesting as this one! Zowie! You gotta love the Soviet-era name for this; Urgorian Land Pioneers Memorial. I guess "Big Spooky Heroic Peoples Siberian Pyramid" was already taken! And it's a tetrahedron! Wait a minute, do you mean to tell me that those nutty high-placed Hoagland fans are in Russia, too? Oh, now, wait a minute- you're taking this all a little teensy bit too far, buddy!

And Khanty Mansiysk is the future home of a giant glass obelisk, too! Wacky! And a heavenly insemination beam? Those Russkies are a panic!

UPDATE: Hey, wait a minute, you kooky Ruskies! What's the big idea with the illuminated green pyramid! You might have snuck that one by me but not by Daria!

You know, they borrow our green pyramid from our dollar bill and then they're up to some kind of shenanigans with those flags! Man, laugh a minute over there!


  1. That's great. I especially like the slogan "The Pulse of Cooperation". Makes me think of EMP weapons. Nice.

    That memorial is something else. And it glows green at night. phallic obelisk with the heavenly beam.

    Like you, I've been following all of the bizarre development projects in Dubai also. Have you seen the shape-shifting building yet? They want to build one in NYC as well.

    The elites are going for broke.

    The news has been so full of this stuff lately that all I've wanted to do is post it on my blog.

  2. A funny synch between you and Stephen Colbert...I was just watching him talk about the world's biggest building coming to Russia called "Crystal Island". [url][/url]
    27 million sq feet of wild spiraling city!

  3. God, that thing is ugly.

    Maybe Colbert reads the Sun...

  4. Also many years ago, a tea company here (who've since started doing mainstream organic tea, so they're allright in that regard) did a big ad campaign about their 'pyramid shaped t-bags' - but they were actually tetrahedrons,

    so, I phoned them up and complained, to see what they would say. "a pyramid is half an octahedron, an entirely different Platonic solid altogether to a tetrahedron; a pyramid has a square base and four triangular sides, while a tetrahedron has four triangular faces and no other faces" - but it was so long ago I don't recall what the response was.

  5. That top one looks like Wardenclyff, without the big globe-shaped top.

    Don't you think though, that it'd be way better to live in a world - which if it had built up areas, then they're buildings like those (especially that shiny one, and the green one, etc) - to me, if you're going to build anything at all, then it ought to be as good-looking and aesthetically pleasing as possible - otherwise you shouldn't do it, cause then you're wasting Earth resources for nothing, and people do all that work for nothing, you upset the natural landscape and all the plants minerals and animals etc that live there for nothing.

    It has to look good, has to.
