  2. This is from Putin or at least his hierarchy. He has been openly pushing for more births as Russia has a birth-rate problem and publically vowed to do something about both that and the declining Russian population. It’s part of his “Russia is the moral compass of the world” garbage he peddles, such as at his last state address, and that message doesn’t work with a drop in demographics.Report

    Does not anybody think to consult lawyers first? We’re great at pointing out how things like this are bad ideas.Report

    I’m wondering if they’re gonna require paternity tests, or take the mothers’ word for it.

    Still, this is a bad idea, but in 2018? This kinda thing doesn’t exactly *surprise* me that it’s a thing.Report

    Do Russian subsidiaries of companies like Burger King have the same sort of bureaucracy and PR culture that would catch this as a bad idea?Report

    I always assumed that college cheerleading started with just this in mind. Line up the prettiest girls in the school along the field/court and see what happens. Odds are you’ll get some babies with good athletic potential brought up in families with high levels of school loyalty.Report

      College cheerleaders were men for the first few decades of their existence. Most women didn’t go to college. The modesty culture of the time was kind of against young white women shaking their bodies around. The dress didn’t really allow for it either. It was only when more women started going to college, the clothing got less restrictive, and mores lightened up that we started having female cheer leaders. I think female cheerleaders really didn’t become prominent until the 1920s and didn’t dominate until the 1940s.Report

  7. Id\s this for real? I mean, 3 million rubles and a lifetime supply of hamburgers sounds like the Onion.

    (By the way, a ruble is worth about a cent and a half, so that’s roughly $45K. The burgers could be the more valuable part.)Report
