an epiphany

A good portion of my generation hears the "Korobeiniki" and thinks of Tetris. It haunts us in our dreams. When you think about it, it's true that nothing reveals more of a people than the games they play. What does Tetris say about the Russian mentality: "It's all very simple. It can all fit together. But it will keep coming faster and faster. Success only causes more pressure, more soul crushing tension. You cannot win. You cannot win!" (said in a thick cossack accent).

Yep, that's Russia. dasvidanya
