This is not Auschwitz

I guess we all sometimes feel that we hate our everyday job and environment. Still we keep fulfilling idiotic tasks and wear smiling masks for clients and bosses. Dropping out is an alternative but I wouldn't go for it.
The last photo shows vodka called "The Source of Joy" and small bottles of drinkable "eau de cologne".
Take a note of the blood on the floor. Somebody's legs are bleeding.

Ice Dick

What ever happened to Leon Trotsky? He got an ice dick, I guess, if he ended up in Nõmme (part of Tallinn that used to be a separate town before WWII). The source of that beautiful photo taken in the beginning of 2009 asked to remain anonymus.

The Ring of Power

Paparazzi gather around Estonian president Toomas "Wild Cat" Ilves and the first lady. It's the Estonian independence day reception in the mostly Russian-speaking North-East of Estonia. Have you ever seen so much respect from the photohunters? They form a geometrically correct circle. We envy you, Tom!
