and asked to find 3 of these things.

Why does it have to be in cyrillic? Ridiculous.

Thank god for online transliteration things.

I'm pretty sure that I agree with most but not all of the things on that list.

Update: I've been handed a biography of this guy and have to summarize it in a paragraph for fund-raising purposes, apparently.

He was born in this place:

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=yakutsk%20russia&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Apparently it's always cold in Siberia. That place is in the middle of freaking nowhere...how did he get out alive?

wikipedia wrote:
Yakutsk is a destination of the Lena Highway. Actually, the city's connection to the Highway is only accessible by ferry in the summer, or in the dead of winter, directly over the frozen Lena River, as Yakutsk lies entirely on its western bank, and there is no bridge anywhere in the Sakha Republic that crosses the mighty Lena. The river is impassable for long periods of the year when it is full of loose ice, or when the ice cover is not sufficiently thick to support traffic, or when the water level is high and the river turbulent with spring flooding.
