Putin's an awful autocrat but damned if he doesn't make the best facial expressions.

Also, the bareback horse riding!



Also, I like how they picked the Smallest Horse In the World so that no one would notice he's only 170 centimers tall.

That just means his hotness (evil hotness! but still!) is of the condensed variety.

I say "only", but actually he's got four centimetres on me. Mind you, I wouldn't be ashamed to be seen on full-sized horse.

Oh, god, Putin. He's insane in a way that's terrifying and awesome all at once. My new favorite thing: like in any collective work, group sex is good because people can slack off a bit

Well put ...

Intellectually, I want to refute the word awesome, but I take your point. If I had ever thought that an ex-KGB agent would end up being President of post-Soviet Russia, he certainly wouldn't have been as quirky as this one.

Re: Well put ...

Awesome in this sense could be used in the more concrete sense of "looked upon with a sense of awe" not necessarily the more common sense of "so cool and amazing!"

Because he is terrifying; and watching his actions and his public persona is like watching.... I dunno. The polar bears, the guiding birds on their migration, etc. etc. etc. It's... incredible. And I suppose since I'm so far removed from his sphere I can look and laugh, a bit, while tucking the terror firmly away.
