Awesome video, but it totally needs more Sigur Rós. Untitled 1, to be specific.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Very nice video, it's still amazing me how that many people got out alive, just think of the children sitting in school that day like any other when suddenly being told to get out as quickly as they can. It's like looking into a massive time capsule in some of those pictures, where nothing has changed since that faithful day with stuff left exactly how it was on the day.

Untitled 1 just feels so appropriate, I mean... well just watch and see!

Great pictures BLH (will watch the video in a bit). It's somewhere I'd really like to go myself to see, thought I'd probably be too scared to go. Did you just go alone BLH? Or with friends? And how many other people were on the tour with you? Also what's with the (freaky) graffiti, who's responsible for that? Gutted you didn't get a photo of the freaky clown train though. Did you see it?

:lol: Sorry for overloading you with questions.

freaky clown train?? never heard of it! :shock:
Yeah i went alone. [arnie voice]I VERK ALOONE[/arnie]. I realised that noone was ever gonna go with me, so i said strawberry float it, im going on my own! It was either go on my own, or wait forever for someone to do it with me. There were 12 people on the tour, including me...and people you wouldnt expect too, 2 middle aged finnish women! No idea abou the graffiti, i heard yuri saying something about it but didnt quite catch it, i was too busy crapping myself at how amazing the place was :lol:

I'm far too much of a pussy to go all the way there on my own. Hope I can talk someone into coming with me one day, sure I can persuade someone.

As for freaky clown train. This is freaky clown train (sure it originated from that website which had all the chernobyl tour pictures on):

The main bit of the sign (the yellowish bits, I can't read the small bits) says: "Complex *the second word I don't know, and I'm talking to a russian friend who also does not recognise the word and she is russian!* vector


Image

The word "молодцы " on the left means "Well done!"

on the right "новости" means News

The subheading below that means " Well done for searching" or something...

Image

Top orange bit means something like "Signal, Warning, signalling of OCD and actions done according to it's warnings" - This may be a bit wrong...

Image

First line I can't read the first word... it's not all there. Its something like "teachers in schools should teach children rules of using means of protection and actions according to the signals of civilian defence
or civil defence" .. I needed a translator for 5 or 6 words of that... so it might be a bit out
