Soviets were AntiSemitic!? Oh Wait, Duh

The math department at prestigious Moscow State University would give special problems on their oral entrance exame to Jews and other “undesirables.” The solutions were simple, but nearly impossible to find — so the university avoided scandals or complaints, while keeping anyone they didn’t like from entering. These problems were “Jewish problems” or “coffins.” Read the new article about them here

We do not want a war, but again
enemies try to violate our peace,
For peace and happiness, we are ready
for a difficult fight, we are ready to fight.
Should you attack us, we are ready to respond,
Land of the Soviets and China
Pole and Czech, Romanian, Bulgarian -
Try to count us!

Chorus:

Friends, friends, keep the powder dry,
Friends, friends, form a strong line!
For the children’s laughter on the sunny open spaces,
For free labour, for free labour, we are ready to fight!

Enemies are hoping that an atom
will give them victory, but it wont be so.
Through Labour and intelligence of our soldiers
We have answer to everything
Let them have their cowardly atom,
But we know for sure:
Beating heart means more,
Fire commands a hand!

Chorus:

Friends, friends, keep the powder dry,
Friends, friends, form a strong line!
For the children’s laughter on the sunny open spaces,
For free labour, for free labour, we are ready to fight!

Our land fires with willingness
Just dare you, mean enemy and attack us
Half of the mankind is ready to step up with
an armoured fist
We are ready to fight you anywhere you should choose
We, like a one man, will march forward
The unity of our fraternal armies
will save Earth once more!

Chorus:

Friends, friends, and keep the powder dry,
Friends, friends, equals the strong line!
For the children’s laughter on the sunny open spaces,
For free labour, free labour for we are ready to fight!

One of the only two existing solar furnaces in the world completed in Uzbekistan in 1987 and showcased in Архитектура СССР (Architecture USSR), Issue 3-4, 1988. The grainy photos of the furnace in the landscape make it seem like an etching of an ancient temple, an image heightened by Helios in his chariot, seen in the section drawing.
