Russian is so cool, Cryllic alphabet looks awesome but it looks a little difficult though. If you succeed you can enjoy Russian metal to the full extent, they're fairly good at it too.

That's pretty cool - I've always wanted to learn russian since playing Command And Conquer Red Alert 2 and selecting the combine harvester where he says "Da!" in a cool accent :lol:

That's the typed out version though, the handwritten alphabet is different from that. When I did it at GCSE we had to learn both of them.

The path that runs along the River Leen near the Hospital has re-opened. Walking that way to/from work takes ten minutes longer but is much more pleasant than walking along the ring-road.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Cursive cyrillic is something to behold - some letters appear to be completely swapped.
