Yes, I also love it and hate it, as do most people here. However, there is some really odd stuff in there:

1. everything happens, as the Russians say, “from the c**t.”
(and then continues with the uterus theme a little further on.)

2. "Pimples? Try massaging your face with semen". WTF?

I don't know about not seeing people crying on the street. I notice someone in tears nearly every week.

I won't miss seeing dead people on the street. That was something I'd never seen before I came here but I've seen four corpses up to now, three of those uncovered while a cop stood around puffing a cigarette.

Lots of young girls weeping openly on the metro too. Saw one just last night. Totally uncontrollable heaving weeping. Yet, Moscow does not believe in tears...
