In Russia, have redheads traditionally been regarded with
suspicion because there are so few of them?

Chubais comes to mind, but I can understand why he's not so popular!

Seriously, are there any Russian tales or proverbs about redheads?

PS. I haven't Red hair!

Ed, a lot of Russian Jews are redheaded. Quite a few of my relatives were. One Irish friend of mine told me the sad story of how, a few years back, he'd been mistaken for a Jew here by skinheads and beaten up:(
As for Chubais..yes.....the less said about him the better:(

Sounds as if Russian skinheads would have a field day in Edinburgh - you never saw so many red heads and fair complexions in your life. ;-))))))

I don`t think many are jewish, though.....

How bad is the anti-Semitism problem here? Should Jews take precautions to avoid having their asses kicked? Or is it less overt?

:D taking Chubais into consideration and request for a proverb ...;) there is a childish rhyme from one of the cartoons which is still rather wellknown and used mostly by kids:

"Рыжий, рыжий, конопатый...Убил дедушку лопатой" :p

I have reddish blonde hair, and I want to visit Mascow, and I'm not Jewish. So is it a good idea to dye my hair before I go?

Most people in this thread have gone grey by now anyway, given it was about six years since the last post... :jester:

I think many Red Russians come from the Scandinavian sect that partially spawned the white Russo ethnicity. In Sweden for example you'll hear people comment on babies with red hair as having it the color "like the old Vikings".

Can you explain how human consciousness may originate from quantum wave collapse within nueronal microtubules?

... but that's too easy ... conscious life, like the entire universe, is simply a statistical fluctuation in the quantum vacuum. You need to review your lecture notes on the number "42" :soccer:

42.....don't be such a numpty. Everyone knows that muon decay results in the number 23.

The number is 48.

It's the number of the universe.

And the universe is connected to the brain.

Only through stopping the world will you diconnect the universe and find true awareness.


That's why vodka is so poplar.

poppy anyone?

It's just energy that exist on different levels of awareness.

How's that MickeyT?


Anymore?

I am a redheaded myself. No any nation or race stereotypes exist in Russia about redheaded. Sometimes they can make fun of that with jokes but Russian like making fun of people by any reasons because they can speak without any restriction accepted on the West.
As for me, I am OK with this, because I myself can make fun of anyone in defense and sometimes in offence as well.
Freedom is more important than safety. Including freedom of speech.
