Watch This Russian Soldier Stroll Through A Minefield

Entertainment

You may be cool, but you’ll never be “strolling through explosions like you’re out for a walk in the park” cool.


A video posted to the Facebook page of Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, shows a Russian soldier walking through a testing range in a bomb suit as explosions go off all around her.

In the April 22 post, Rogozin referenced the science fiction film “Terminator,” calling the cybernetic killing machine a “sad excuse,” compared to the woman in the video.

He’s not wrong.

Walking unflinchingly through the minefield, the tester seems completely unfazed by the explosions going on around her.

According to Maxim, the next-generation bomb suit was designed by Russia’s Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering, part of Russia’s defense industry, and focuses on small arms and non-lethal equipment.

At the video’s end, the tester nonchalantly pulls off the now blackened hood, and shakes out her long locks of blonde hair, as a man walks up and gives her a bouquet of flowers.

Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.

U.S. Coast Guard cutter Bertholf left California on January 20 for a months-long mission in the Pacific to support U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, the largest of the U.S. military's geographic combatant commands.

Coast Guardsmen aboard the Bertholf left Alameda on the 30th day of what is now the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. They left a few days after not getting their first paycheck since that shutdown started and without knowing when the next will come.

Leaking pipes. Moldering walls. Condemned offices and balconies. Plumbing that can't handle its load and a stormwater system dumping unfiltered rainwater into the Severn River.

These aren't the issues of a long-abandoned factory. They describe the current condition of the Naval Academy.
