    Tong, keeping bees is one of the most interesting vocations and/or studies in psychology. Luzhkov (mayor of moscow) is a bee keeper. Are you interested in honey bees?

    No. He doesn't understand English or Scottish humour. Is there any difference from English or Russian humour?

    There are quite few but surely:

    1. Russian humour is mainly in Russian (English is in English);
    2. Humour (no matter the country of origin, is based on some local stories (history, politicians, ways of behaviour, ways of living), which can be understood only by locals
    not only s.t happens!

    Yes I agree in a way. But there is a simularity in British humour and Russian humour. About Grannies or Babooskas waking across the road or climbing the stairs and trying to avoid them, and them carrying the big stick. The men acting as ladies, all similar comedy. Look at Mr Bean.

    But Mr Bean is a visual actor, and has been successful. However the biggesr comedy is too complicated for the rest of the world, such as Only fools and Horses. Massive success in UK, But not understood anywhere else.

    If your life was being made into a film and you got to pick the actor who played you, who would it be and why?

    What frightens you?

    In contemplating suicide, what, for you, would be the most important consideration: A painless exit; Going out with a bang; or, not leaving too much of a mess?

    Do you have any really close friends, and what quality makes them so?

    Do you see any merit in Scottish nationalism?

    What is your tipple of choice?


    When were you happiest?


    Thanks

    Matt

    I visited Moscow for 4 weeks in 2007 and felt that I missed out on a lot because then because I knew, maybe, a dozen words of Russian. So I'd like to return with more vocabulary and confidence - then I can go back to Ostov in Novogireevo and give a bollocking to one particularly rude cashier who, several times, made me feel like a retard who'd crapped in his pants.

    There are numerous people from this forum whom I'd love to meet and talk to face to face, and quite a few I'd enjoy getting wasted with.

    Honey bees are amazing. They were the first things to know that the Earth is round (despite having a brain of less than a million neurons) - they navigate by using the sun as a reference point and can calculate its position even when it's on the other side of the world. They have a built in map of the sun's movements and learn local topography, and communicate to other bees the whereabouts of nectar up to 12km away by using a complex language of dancing and buzzing. It takes the lifetimes of 12 bees to make half a teaspoon of honey.

    No, I'm not a bee keeper, but it's interesting that Luzhkov is. In the Western Isles we have a unique species of bee, which has 7 stripes....

    I am not at all familiar with Russian humour....but I imagine that it would be quite sardonic. My Russian skills are probably too poor to understand anything beyond the crudest humour.
