dos1http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/09/05/team-fortress-2-poster-mistaken-for-us-propaganda-on-russian-state-television/ :D21:04
wpwrakdos1: and what if it is anyway ? ;-)21:32
eintopfwho is more trustful usa or russia21:56
wpwrakeintopf: neither ? :)22:04
DocScrutinizer05it's actually a proof fro *russian* propaganda22:05
DocScrutinizer05and I'm afraid it's pretty in line with the usual crap they feed their people in russian television22:06
DocScrutinizer05no matter how stupid and silly the made up story, it's still good enough for russian TV22:07
wpwrakoh, that goes back a loooong way. already goebbels wrote eloquently about such things and i'd suspect that he merely stole them from some roman or greek texts :)22:10
wpwrakthe basic idea is that, no matter how nonsensical your accusation, something will stick. hurl enough faeces in the general direction of your enemy and he will get dirty.22:11
DocScrutinizer05actually I failed, it's not the magic tunnel leading you out from the center of a nest of one-way-roads. It's just one of thr usualy crossing-bypass tunnels you see frequently in Paris. But I can't spot it in google maps. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Arc+de+Triomphe/@48.8743606,2.2925335,3a,75y,117.42h,74.73t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s2ufTBLsiFk2EDi0CandTKQ!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xd9b5676e112e643d22:31
wpwrakmaybe they improved things a bit since 1883, e.g., when these self-moving carts came into fashion22:34
DocScrutinizer05cool now! google maps works better in konqueror than in FF22:34
DocScrutinizer05think I found it22:38
DocScrutinizer05google-map cam-car didn't scan it. Wonder why ;-P22:39
wpwrakhmm, your link shows a completely open wide road. no obstacles all the way to the horizon.22:41
DocScrutinizer05"Hors Garabit"22:41
wpwrakah, could be22:41
wpwrakplenty of warning sign plus police presence :)22:42
wpwrakmaybe the could also add a moat and drawbridge ;-)22:42
DocScrutinizer05definitely "2m40"oops ECHAN, sorry22:53

DocScrutinizer05yeah, I should at least give the starting point of that spam I posted here above:  <wpwrak> DocScrutinizer05: 3.6 m ? here's something much better: http://www.2m40.com/23:06
DocScrutinizer05I tried to spot it on google maps23:13
