Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

That would make sense. No one, not even someone as control-hungry as Putin, could consider Seagal to be threatening in any way.

Absolutely. It reminds of the complement to this scene from Ghost Dog. (Safe for work. You'll hear "hell" once or twice, maybe each time in French.)

I observe these harlots are not wearing the obligatory Burka and demonstrates a horrifying lack of modesty that is offensive to any Muslim man or woman.

Thank you. I have been puzzling over this. I initially thought of Orthonorm, but the absence of jealous side-glances told me otherwise.

Is this a mosquito?
No. It's an insect spy drone for urban areas, already in production, funded by the US Government. It can be remotely controlled and is equipped with a camera and a microphone. It can land on you, and it may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin. It can fly through an open window, or it can attach to your clothing until you take it in your home.

It is subtitled "exhibition in some Ukrainian ethnographic museum". IMO, they've overdone it a bit. But the picture it still epic.

And it kinda looks like a church.

That is probably because it WAS a church at one time.  I have seen this in Ukraine.  During Soviet time the non-existence of God was preached, and the churches were sadly converted into other things - museums, night clubs, grain storage, etc...or just destroyed.
