The man doth protest

The tall structure in the center is a part of Peter Paul fortress complex, where Alter Rebbe was imprisoned.

No, the sky is not always of this color in Petersburg. Only when Putin kills especially many oligarchs on the particular day.

s?

e said...

sheesh. he was correcting a typo.

The Real Shliach said...

I gathered, but what was the typo?

e said...

I shall leave this riddle unsolved, so that non-mathematicians can also use their noodles.

The Real Shliach said...

Sheesh. Just because you don't know what the typo was...

e said...

I know exactly what it was. Don't try that silly trick on me.

Dovid, I like the way you think.

Btw, I think this might set the record for most comments to start off a thread that have nothing to do with the body of the post (all right, so CA's first was slightly pertinent, but for argument's sake will say that it wasn't).

That's a bloody red sky. Bloody nice photograph too. Lamposts seem much bigger now than they used to be.

One more piece of municipal officiousness to be ignored.

The Real Shliach said...

Altie: I was relying on our local Russki representatives to answer your question, but evidently they have not. For shame.

Modeh: huh?

Crawling Axe said...

It would be shame if they did.

The Real Shliach said...

You mean, it would be shame to respond to stupidity?

Crawling Axe said...

Well, if I said that, it would sound rude.

The Real Shliach said...

I'm glad I have less scruples than you.

e said...

trs: fewer scruples, not less scruples.

The Real Shliach said...

I have so less scruples, I don't even write good anymore!

e said...

oh dear.

"grammar started to dissolve in on itself and whole sentences began to die."

And thus was the empire forged.

e said...

you're forging your empire on faulty foundations.

The Real Shliach said...

You don't forge foundations, you pour them.

e said...

but you forge on top of foundations.

Only if you live in a castle, and are putting up a vast gate. Otherwise most people make do with wood.
