    Not surprising in the least. I knew this kind of stuff would start happening...

    HA!

    Okay, actually, that's rather bizarre. But AWESOME nonetheless!

    Awesome, but it made me think:
    "What's wrong with the world?"

    you mean that so many people are worried about Cthulhu, as opposed to Russia's political problems?

    You won't be saying that when the stars align.

    Actually, Cthulhu mythos and human-killing robots is quite popular topics in russian part of livejournal.com, so there was a flashmob to vote for these questions :)

    Hm...a Communist Gundam, can we paint it red with a yellow hammer and anvil on it's arms? t would look cool to duke it out with the Capitalist Gundams (painted in green and looking like money of couse.)

    Why anvil? There are no anvil in communist symbols but hammer and reaping-hook

    Y'know, I hate to say it, but I think the comment about him looking like Dobby was correct.

    The thing is, those of us who have a Pacific coastline have to worry, since we'll be the ones who have to fend off the first waves of creatures from the sunken deep : ) I'm sure leaders in Switzerland never get questions like these.

    Little does one know that Putin has answered this question, and in his answer he expressed his suspicion of Great Chthulhu.
    He said the following (quote from lenta ru, translation by me)

    ""I treat all such supernatural forces with suspicion, and
    would suggest those seeking thruth to refer to Korane, Talmud and Bible, as it might be more beneficial."
    I wonder what made him so distrusfull of Great One (Chthulhu is nice, at least he is 100% against any discrimination ;) ) and what exactly is Chthulhu suspected of.
    He also did not explain his unobvious conclusion of Bible, Torah and Korane being somehow more favourable than Chthulhu (indeed, that is quite questionable)

    My oh my, we've got to emailt this to Chaosium. Realy. Just think of the possibilities: Russian setting for CoC! Marvelous...

    P.S.: As for Sov Gundams, it is pointless to paint them at all, as they will be, surely, equipped with permamently active failproof cloaking device that will render them invisible, both opticaly and through any but most sophisticated radar systems.

    As everyone knows, there is nothing supernatural mentioned in mainstream Holy Books... :roll:

    I wonder if Kursk disaster is somehow connected with the Chthulhu-Putin affair... :scream:

    No, that was the Cthulhu-related organization known as SPECTRE.

    Wrong yet again! The Cult of Cthulhu is directly behind all of this mess... once they have the mass media under control, combined with televangilists, there will be nothing to stop them from destroying the Gnomes of Zurich, the Bermuda Triangle Organization, AND the UFO Conspiracy Group. :shock:

    We are looking at the end as we know it my friends! Might as well prostrate yourself in front of the Pacific Ocean and wait for The Great One to arise from the depths... this of course to the song Call of Kthulhu done by Metallica. :cyclops:

    you could just have a Zaku for the Capitalists. It's green already:grin: Just paint either a big $ or £ on it. Or whatever.:lol:

    I dunno, I hear that Switzerland has a very powerful navy. Well, a navy anyway. I wish that was just a joke.
