Nope. You will not get a TV series with that. Americans cannot read Cyrillic script. They will simply think you are Russian.

 

Wait so you're telling me not everyone east of Germany is a Russian? God damn Faux news been lying to me.

It is voting ticket.

2. Nikolic

Which is all irelevant.

As someone sharply noticed comments are in English (well, not propper queen's english but still).

 

 

...They will simply think you are Russian.

 

Which works both ways with two friends scaring shit out of the clueless restaurant stuff in NY who thought they he is from Russian mob and his GF was high class escort*... :D

*They came straight from a club to eat, she had '20s flapper outfit ad he looked like Clark Gable...

Sharply? I'm a blunt object at best, my neural pathways are more dirt tracks.

 

And yes, it works both ways. Working the doors, I've been punched for being Russian, Albanian, Polish, and throat jabbed and arm locked the other guy before he got his in, because he thought I was a Yank telling him what to do in his own country.

 

Thought I was from New Jersey. I have no idea....another thought I was from Kentucky. An American couple thought i was American, and tipped me with a two dollar bill.

 

NOBODY has punched me yet for me being a Serb though, though other Serbs have been physically stupid in the attempt (managed Doors for a Serb club in London - little Roma Gypsie guy next to me was former fly weight boxing champion of Ex Yugoslavia; 220 fights, 178 wins, never knocked out. Weighs 64kg with the stomach he has put on)

That's sadly hilarious. You need a custom T-shirt that says, "Punch me, I'm PolishRussianSwedish_________________!!"

 

Now that the hideous TV show "Jersey Shore" has propagated out over the airways, next time someone accuses you of being from New Jersey you should just cold-cock them right off the bat. ^_^

Any comment by the Israeli contingent on their election outcome? From outside, looks like it will be hard to form a government since neither the right-wing and religious block nor the center-left got a majority of their own, Likud-Beitenu is still strongest group, second-placed Jesh Atid will only enter a coalition that includes at least one other center-left party, third-placed Labor will not go with Netanyahu at all, the remaining centrist parties don't have the seats to achieve a majority without another right-wing party too, but there would be little love between the fourth-ranked pro-settler House of Israel and Jesh Atid, and outright hostility between the latter and the orthodox parties ...

You got that quite right, whatever coalition will be formed will be very unstable. I personally am unhappy with the results, it seemes like the Summer 2011 protest votes went to Yesh Atid, which is bizzare and goes to show how little the voters really care about the agendas of the various parties. This year I went on with Eretz Hadasha (literraly new land/country) which is an offshot of the Israeli occupy movement (only got 0.74% of the votes and hence nothing :(), and what seems really bizzare is how voters who got cold feet and switched their vote to Yesh Atid which stands for the completely opposite values.

 

All in all, my money is on another round of elections in 2 years or less. Unfortunatley I still think that the majority here is getting more and more hawkish and it doesn't sit well with me.

I couldn't sleep last night and ended up clicking thru the channels until O-dark-thirty. The overnight news shows in the US were all a-twitter about Bibi's narrow win. The talking heads seemed really pleased he (well, his party) got fewer votes than expected.

Klaus Iohannis wins Romanian presidential election

 

Ethic German mayor narrowly beats favourite, prime minister Victor Ponta, in runoff after first-round vote was too close to call
Associated Press in Bucharest
The Guardian, Sunday 16 November 2014 22.56 GMT
Romania’s prime minister conceded defeat on Sunday night after an extremely close presidential runoff against an ethnic German Transylvanian mayor. Victor Ponta had been the favorite to win, but was narrowly edged out by Klaus Iohannis, the mayor of the city of Sibiu, who has promised a crackdown on corruption.
Ponta said he had personally congratulated Iohannis. “We are a democratic country,” Ponta said outside the headquarters of his Social Democratic party two hours after polls closed. “The people are always right.”
Ponta called on 15,000 protesters gathered outside his offices to listen to his message in an apparent attempt to defuse tensions encountered by expat Romanians voting abroad.
Exit polls put the results at neck and neck. The official result is expected on Monday.
About 300,000 Romanians who live overseas voted, many against the government. There were protests that they had been unable to vote in the election on November 2 that led to the runoff.
“Romanians, you were heroes today,” Iohannis said before Ponta’s concession, calling on authorities to count the vote correctly. “The vote was phenomenal!” He went on to say that voters had come “out of their houses to defend the right to vote” 25 years after the Romanian revolution.
Some Romanians waved toothbrushes in protest at long waits at polling stations abroad. Romanians living overseas had to vote at polling stations in their adopted countries, and thousands grew exasperated when they had to stand in line for hours in cities such as Paris, London, and Munich during the first round. Some were unable to vote. The government said it had improved the voting procedure this time.
Ponta led by 10 percentage points in the original vote, and corruption probes of senior Ponta aides appeared not to have dented the 42-year-old former prosecutor’s chances. Iohannis, 55, has promised an independent justice system if he becomes president.
The winner will replace Traian Basescu, who is stepping down after 10 years. In Romania, the president is in charge of foreign policy and defence, and names key prosecutors and the chiefs of intelligence services.
