Cat vs Bear in a play wrestling match - and the cat wins!Okay, I’ll be honest with you, Frumpsters: I may or may not have a problem when it comes to video content coming out of the former Soviet Union. I simply can’t get enough of it.

I mean, I’m not even actively seeking it out, but when it pops up — be it from a link someone sends me, Reddit, YouTube, etc. — well, I guess you could say it strikes a chord with me.

What that chord is, and why, I have no earthly idea, but it’s struck nonetheless. Oh, and it’s not everyday one gets to see a cat wrestle a bear, let alone inside a dwelling. So there’s that, too.

The cat wins, by the way. Not even kidding (video after the jump)…

Meanwhile, in Russia, taxis picking up bearsHey, remember those crazy ass Russian kids and that makeshift bungie stunt off the side of a Cold War-era government housing block? If not, scroll back a bit with your mouse and click on that bold text that reads “crazy ass Russian kids and that makeshift bungie stunt off the side of a Cold War-era government housing block?

If you like the above video, it follows that you’ll almost certainly enjoy the first installment as well.

Just what will they think of next!

That’s right, Frumpsters — you can add Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, to the list now. Probably a substantial portion of Russia’s citizens, too, but we’ll leave the heavy political satire to some other global media outlet.

Hey, remember those crazy ass Russian teens going walkabout on that 900 foot tower? If not, scroll back a bit with your mouse and click on that bold text that reads “crazy ass Russian teens going walkabout on that 900 foot tower?” Depending on your level of acrophobia, you may or may not regret it.

Well, as if being insanely high up in the air — unsecured — wasn’t tempting fate enough, those rambunctious red rascals are now hurling themselves off the sides of buildings. Just, you know, fastened to a rope, of course.

Is it really that boring over there, guys? I mean, why not waste your youth on something a bit less dangerous — like, train sledding, or something. Either way, I’m just glad the Cold War is over, lest these whippersnappers get their hands on some launch codes…
