To premiere our new video section, here's a Russian video-reportage about policeman Eugene who's been raising his daughters to perform dangerous stunts, lovingly subtitled by RUSSIA! Watch the circus-man without a circus as he throws darts at his daughters, has them walk on swords and broken glass, and assaults them fire and daggers. It's kind of sweet, actually.

So, the other day BoingBoing featured a link to a seemingly harmless blog called rolcats.com. The site's author purports to be offering translations of images he takes from a Russian lolcat site called kotomatrix.ru. The twist is that they're not real translations at all, but an excuse to make Cold War jokes about Marxism and the KGB. BoingBoing seemed to get that it's a hoax, but in the past few days we've received queries about the site's authenticity from friends who aren't stupid. So let's put an end to the madness! After the jump, a real Russian lolcat caption for the photo seen above.
