I'm doing a bonus post today because while not doing my homework and surfing the internet, I discovered that my favorite Russian had a birthday. yes, good ol' Vlad had a birthday on October 7th. He's 60. I didn't know that until I stumbled upon this nugget of info. I also discovered that 1 in 5 Russian women would marry him. ahh the lure of a badass translates to any country or language. Happy Birthday Vladimir Putin. sorry I was late wishing it.
