Hey, I did a Google image search the other day for fun. Searched for "ugly Russian woman". I only found clearly Photoshopted pictures as jokes. Are all Russian women at the very least pretty? I know Russian women are a big thing but I have never seen a Russian woman that could be called ugly. It is almost scary.  Cheesy

I suppose there are actually but an ugly Russian woman only has two options. In the words of the Poet she must be told, "Get thee to a nunnery!" Or she must find a blind man. Poor ugly Russian women. Sorry, been reading serious stuff all day and needed to make a joke.

The Russia you know has come from books and online. Those of us who have lived among Russians know that there are, indeed, Russian women who aren't pleasant to the eye, just as there are less than comely women in every nationality or ethnicity. The phrase "Olga from the Traktor Faktory", and spoken with a heavy Slavic accent, was coined by Russians, and it doesn't take much imagination to imagine what this not-entirely-mythical Olga looks like.    Shocked Shocked laugh

Those ugly Russian women are not really Russians. They are Freemason alien babies from Krypton.

I'm sure most Olgas are quite pretty.

I'm not fascinated with Russian women but how they dress like. Most that I've are sort of bling bling version of femininess. A kind of antithesis for Finnish way of dressing since we tend to dress fairly badly and overly casually

I would post a picture of some ugly Russian women, but somehow I feel as if posting someones pic off google images as the personification of Russian ugliness would be rather damaging to that poor person's self esteem if she ever happened to run across it.

Good call. If "beauty lies in the eye of the beholder", then so does ugliness.

I read once that if you took 50 American girls and 50 Russian girls and stood them up in a line naked it would be hard to tell them apart.  (Assuming similar body shapes...I.E. the American girls were forced to cut down on the Ben & Jerry's.)  The major difference between the American girls and the Russian girls is one of class.  Russian women typically dress better and take better care of themselves than American women do.

Now, a lot of this is probably that it takes a bit more work and determination for Russians to come here, so their numbers are somewhat low.  They can't just swim the Rio Grande and be home free.  This leads to apex fallacy.  We probably aren't seeing the Gopniks and other gutter scum coming over here, and of those that do, they don't really seem to make it as far as Nebraska.  I was having a similar discussion with someone the other day.  They asked why so many Indians are doctors, and in general seem like good people.  The answer is simple, we aren't seeing all billion of them.  Only the educated, upper caste ones.  This is the same continent where some of the kindest, smartest, most beautiful people I have ever known have come from, and it is the place where a girl got raped to death with a piece or rebar.  So, I can say that almost a hundred percent of the Russian women I have known have been beautiful (and stunningly so), classy, and educated.  But I am sure there are some hideous ones who are dumber than a box of broken rocks.

I suppose requesting pics so we can examine this phenomenon for ourselves would be out of the question.

I thought so.  Embarrassed

I think it is good Ed Snowden is at least seeking temporarily and perhaps permanent asylum in Russia. He is a nerd but decent looking, and unlike the nerd that made Facebook, Mark Zuckererg, not trying to sell our private info to the NSA but to show us the NSA is spying. Zuckerberg got a pretty hot Asian girl, and maybe she really loves him, but if he did not have all that money and fame she would not be with him. But maybe to give him some relieve from all the stress Snowden will find a hot Russian girl and marry her. Then he can get citizenship and everything without a problem. I think he should send President Obama and email after he gets married to the Russian chick with marriage pics saying:


Dear Mr. Obama,

There is no need for you to hack my computer to read this or see my wedding pics. Your wife is not bad looking but my wife is a lot better looking. Russian girls age a lot better, too. Just imagine you will have to get a mistress when Michelle gets old. I forgive you and could send you a nice Russian prostitute if Michelle gets too many wrinkles or gets fat. I mean I know she is pushing eating healthy, but my guess is she's going to get old and fat. You are already murdering people and breaking the oaths you made, so I doubt a little adultery is going to matter.

Yours,

Ed Snowden

Actually they don't. Google "babushka bomb." Also google "black don't crack" - black men and women don't wrinkle nearly as much and age a lot better in general.

Beauty somewhat subjective.

That being said, I don't find Russian women--or most any European women--attractive at all, save the Spanish. I'd much rather marry a Latin American woman, simply because I'm more used to them. Yet, strangely enough, the only girlfriend I've ever had who I love is a German Filipina.

I have certainly seen many beautiful Latin American women, but I don't know how anyone can say that this is not attractive.



BTW, do you have any idea how hard it is to find an attractive Russian girl on google images that is not in a bikini?  Not easy at all.  Don't they wear clothes over there?  It's like -40 degrees for pete's sake!

Hah.

Just what do you think will happen when all the cute Russian girls realise
A. Snowden can't get them into America (at least not without him going to jail)
B. He is a very low level mostly untrained computer tech, mostly related to stealing info
C. Has no money
D. Who hires someone everyone -knows- isn't capable of not divulging company info? His employment prospects are not grand. Unless he writes a book entitled 'my life in Russia' or something

He will be alone in his small apartment, trying to learn to speak Russian, until he goes to Venezuela

I'll quote my sub-deacon with this one,  "It must be something in the water." As he is referring to his trip to Russia and seeing all the beautiful women.
