Looks like I will need to get a teaching job in Fiji then. Nobody will nuke Fiji and it's probably far away enough from any radioactive fallout.

Ahh damn, all the fish will be radioactive. Ok, maybe Tibet. The mountains should help stop the radiation and I can live off of Yak milk.

The Russian government is also trying to invest in its people:

For those of you who don't read Russian, the article basically says that the Russian government will pay for graduate students to study in Western universities...provided they return after they complete their degrees.

I have to say this is an admirable move by the government. I also think that English teachers in Russia should branch out and learn to teach GRE/GMAT/LSAT Smile

This is accurate except the part about completing their degrees. There is a fixed amount and it does not necessarily even cover a course for one year (not with expensive UK fees anyway).

Putin might be a lot of bad things but he is not stupid enough to allow the Russian economy to collapse! This would cause an uprising and he would be swept from power, something him and his thieving cronies are not yet ready for!

This is the kind of thing which bothers most Russian people much more than politics or '*beep* girls' who would do better to take care of their kids, rather than try to overthrow the regime with noisy, lurid but ultimately ineffective protests!
Rising food prices could spell serious trouble for the govt. and I'm sure they are well aware of this?

Mmm-hmm, and some of us are noticing decreased salaries.
