Russia, Nation of Morons

In yet another epic humiliation for Putin’s Russia, the country has once again been totally excluded from the list of the top 200 universities in the world.  Anyone even vaguely familiar with Russian universities, where professors are paid slave wages and students cheat and bribe the way normal students in other countries drink bottled water.  Russian higher education is corrupt from top to bottom, and decades out of date, mired in neo-Soviet politics.

Or take a look at the list of Nobel prize winners.  Good luck finding even one Russian, much less a significant contingent there.  Russian universities prize slavish adherence to authority and bureaucracy, not the kind of creative cutting-edge thinking that leads to advances in knowledge.  The result is, just for instance, the totally humiliating revelation that Russia has been reduced to using spies to steal simple microchips available on the U.S. commercial market because it can’t produce such basic technology itself.

We firmly believe that the Putin Kremlin does not want it to be any different. A real university system would mean educated, powerful young people who are difficult to control. Putin wants Russians sick and ignorant, because they are so much easier to dominate and control that way. Why else would Putin take the appalling action of kicking UNICEF out of Russia, denying thousands of Russian children a healthier, better life?  It’s the same attitude the rulers of the USSR had, the same attitude that drove the USSR to collapse onto the ash heap of history.

    >> Russian universities prize slavish adherence to authority and bureaucracy, not the kind of creative cutting-edge thinking that leads to advances in knowledge. >>

    Absolutely correct! Russia would never produce such scientific breakthroughs and astute, educated people that’s so characteristic of this awesome, breathtaking, super-duper blog!

    Putin — you should, at the VERY least, consider to appoint Ming, mccusa, and Bohdan as your personal advisors. Better still: Maybe Kim could launch “La Russophobe Consultants Ltd.” or something, specializing in providing Western Supremacist expertise to allegedly incompetent governments in need of enlightenment. As my humble reward, I’ll kindly settle for 10% of the revenue during the 1st business year; agreed?

  2. Leaving our name to the country, my ancestors colonized the Kievan neighborhood, sold a lot of local folks to the ay-rabz(thus their name, “Slaves” )then figured , after wearing out their knouts on the mujiks’ back, that Zeuropa was a more juicy prey and conquered Normandy…

    Then Bill the Conqueror enslaved the Jerries in Great Britain, beating to it Harald Hardrada (mean asshole or hard ass in Norwegian)…after that, it was the British Empire and now the American Hegemony!

    MANIFEST DESTINY, MONFREDDIE!!!

    You skandic folks stayed behind and are now green with envy!

    Haha, La Russiphobe has moderated this comment out earlier today.

    Epic humiliation? Why? Because some NGO did not place Moscow State University in top 200? Uh, Goddamn real, huh? Rephrasing Joseph Stalin’s quote: “It doesn’t matter what is the real rank of a university, what does matter is who calculates the ranking and how”. In fact there are three broadly recognized Universities Ranking Systems.

    1. First and the most respectful is ARWU: http://www.shanghairanking.com/ which places Moscow State University at 77th position in the world.

    2. QS World University Rankings: http://www.topuniversities.com/ which places Moscow State University at 116th position in the world.

    3. And finally the least respectful is Times Higher Education World University Rankings http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk which places Moscow State University at 200 – 2025th position in the world.

    Times Higher Education gives much importance to citations on their ranking. This has been criticized for undermining universities that do not use English as their primary language, like for instance Moscow State University, as well as all Chinese, Brazilian etc. educational institutions. The outcome is truly weird, thus Times Ranking places Caltech at the first place in the world in 2012. While the rest of the systems praise Harvard, Stanford and MIT.

    No, professors are not paid slave wages.

    No, students don’t cheat and bribe the way normal students in other countries drink bottled water.

    Yes, there are some Nobel Prize and other Awards winners.

    And so on, and so forth till the end of the post – pure drivel from irresponsible author as always.

      We didn’t do anything of the kind you raving jackass, WordPress did it as it routinely does when there are a large number of links in a comment, which is common for SPAM posts. ALL such posts are moderated on this blog by the Aksimet system. You should apologize for your disgusting lie.

      You think Russia can be proud that it doesn’t have a single university in the TOP SEVENTY FIVE in the world, by your own admission?? Were you DRUNK when you wrote your post? Are you SERIOUSLY SUGGESTING it’s not reasonable for Russia to be at least in the top 50?

      And do you have ANY support for your contention about who is “respected” or is that just your own deranged opinion? “Has been criticized”? Where’s your source material, you blazing hypocrite? You sound like somebody educated in Russia.

      YES, they ARE paid slave wages.

      http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/02/world/europe/02iht-educlede02.html?pagewanted=all

      YES, students DO cheat and bribe.

      http://themoscownews.com/society/20110704/188810913.html

      NO, Russia has VIRTUALLY NO Nobel Prize winners.

      http://larussophobe.wordpress.com/2010/10/07/editorial-when-is-a-russian-not-a-russian/

      Why does Russia have to steal simple microchips, if it has decent education?

      http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/world/europe/russian-agents-smuggled-us-microchips-fbi-says.html

      Why is Russia’s PRESIDENT a PLAGIARIST if it is not corrupt?

      http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2006/mar/24/20060324-104106-9971r/?page=all

      NO, the Times ranking is NOT limited to citations, it has THIRTEEN SEPARATE FACTORS, you damned liar.

      You are a perfect example of the type of “mind” the Russian university system creates. A self-deluded liar who wants to perpetuate the failed past rather than reform and succeed. A neo-Soviet man.

      • Rare_F5_Twister ⋅

        I’m not going to apologize for anything as long as you never do that as well. However, yes, I do apologize for blaming you instead of the WordPress software for having my comment delayed, you psycho.

        Yes I think Russia can be proud for having its university in Top 100, because there are only 15 countries in the world that have its universities in ARWU top 100 and Russia is one of them. I’m not suggesting that it is not reasonable to be in top 50! Have I ever stated the opposite?

      • Rare_F5_Twister ⋅

        I haven’t said “respected”, you idiot. I said “respectful” that’s different word. I said that ARWU is the most respectful towards the Moscow State University and Times is the least respectful.

        Here is my material containing criticism of Times Ranking system: http://www.eua.be/Libraries/Publications_homepage_list/Global_University_Rankings_and_Their_Impact.sflb.ashx
        It’s a fundamental research from an authorized organization summarized on 85 pages. I never said that Times Ranking is limited to citation. I said it gives much importance to citations, you goddamned liar. Each ranking system has many parameters, but in Times system the citation factor is given excessive weight. Thus the result for all non-english language universities

        Russia had many Nobel Prize winners. Those who still alive and hold Russian citizenship are Alferov, Novoselov and Gobachev.

        You can stop now trying to carpet bomb me with the links to the moscotimes, themosconews, nytimes, thewashingtonpost and the like. Those are not reliable sources but rather private opinions. Sometimes they are good and accurate, sometimes biased, sometimes totally lying. As I said several times before your activity can be summarized to taking some news articles and making psychotic conclusions based on them. If that’s all you are capable of. I am not impressed.

        “Epic Humiliation for being excluded from top 200 in Time Ranking” – Totally psychotic exxageration. Also “epic humiliation” is a slang of hallucinating video game nerds.

        “Professors are paid slave wages” – Exaggeration. Wages are low but not slave. Slaves have not salary at all.

        “Russia has no Nobel Prize winners” – lie.

        “Students cheat and bribe the way normal students in other countries drink bottled water” – Totally psychotic exaggeration. Corruption exists to some extend but not that terrible as you describe.

        “Putin wants Russians sick and ignorant, because they are so much easier to dominate and control that way. Why else would Putin take the appalling action of kicking UNICEF out of Russia, denying thousands of Russian children a healthier, better life?” – Totally psychotic exaggeration. UNICEF activity has no significant net impact on Russian children’s health.

        Now, recent microchip story. Here is the list of US Export Regulations Violations:
        http://efoia.bis.doc.gov/exportcontrolviolations/tocexportviolations.htm
        It’s the link to the US government, not the themoscowtimes, by the way.
        In that list the most interesting is Arrow Electronics Inc. case. Arrow was selling some regulated microchips to Russia http://efoia.bis.doc.gov/exportcontrolviolations/e988.pdf
        It is clear that the US companies had been selling regulated components worldwide for decades. The US government knows that very well. The fact that this story turns into a broad scandal now only indicates that it is politically motivated.

        “You are a perfect example of the type of “mind” the Russian university system creates”
        Stop hallucinating, I received MEECS degree from MIT. What is your degree?

  4. Bohdan ⋅

    Well said, yes indeed well said Ming. To the point and spot on! But you are wasting your efforts and time on these lying “untermensch” like ‘Twister’ – of the truth and that Swedish baboon Manturd.

    • Bohdan ⋅

      Oops I meant larussophobe!!! not Ming. My apologies for that slip.

    • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

      Bohdan, my precious little Ukro:

      Your infinite experience as a BOSS comes in very handy here indeed. Are you willing to take on the role as Chief Execrable Offal for the abovementioned consultancy firm? Moreover, your allegedly stunning wife would amount to “Gefundenes Fressen” with regard to the firm’s PR!

      Is it a deal, Bohdan? Pretty please…!

      • Bohdan ⋅

        I would never lower myself to do any type of deal with a communist arsehole, especially one of your stupid caliber.

        May I remind you once again comrade vegetable swede! that I am of the firm believe that all communists are brainless idiots to believe in that crazy murdering communistic garbage!!! Take a deep look at any communist and you will find an abject failure devoid of all logical thinking in all aspects of life.

        Bah! Manturd, you are one hell of a wasted space. That’s for sure. Or as the Aussies say “I would not urinate on you, even if you were on fire.”

      • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

        “…of the firm believe”

        Silly Ukro unable to differentiate between verbs (believe) and nouns (belief). You would really live up to the title of “Chief Execrable Offal”, Bohdan. Can’t you change your mind, for once? I mean: Here I am overtly promoting a would-be capitalist enterprise, even flattering you with a CEO appointment, and you start psychobabbling about Communism? Is psychobabbling/swearing all that it took you to become a boss, Bohdan? Is your stunning wife really happy about her piggish, ugly husband (the beauty and the beast) ?

        Seriously, Bohdan: You have the moral and intellectual stature of an old, rotting, smelly drunkard on a park bench. You were stupid and vainglorious enough to try on that little mathematical exercise which I explicitly told you to stay away from — with a view to have you swallowing the bait, and I proudly reeled you in.

        • Bohdan ⋅

          You’r a lying jackass Manturd – still!!! For your information turdbrain, I drink very rarely! So stop judging me by your own drunken, decrepit, lying and untermensch standards. If bullshit was a cent a ton, you’d be a millionaire.

          Now comrade, stop romancing with yourself and instead why not tell the truth about that mass murdering idol of yours, you know the greatest mass murderer of all time – your beloved – J.Stalin.

          Bye, bye comrade turd (= shit) brain for now. Back to the permafrost of Sweden’s arctic north for you.

        • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

          Haha, you don’t even really NEED to drink, Bohdan. You already have the charming characteristic traits of a long-time drinker, at least mentally/morally. Intelligent and compassionate people like Stalin and Putin should be a source of inspiration from which you could improve appreciably.

          • Bohdan ⋅

            Like I said before and repeat ‘ad nauseum,’ – STOP LYING YOU ‘COMMO’ TURD BRAINED piece of scum.

            Your stupid and irresponsible comment “Intelligent and compassionate people like Stalin and Putin should be a source of inspiration from which you could improve appreciably.” only cements what a sick in the head imbecile you really are. Yes indeed you’r sick, really sick, in the head.

            Remember comrade the above mass murdering scum’s “inspiration” turned you into a brain dead vegetable, bereft and hopeless to all truth and real facts.

            In the meantime have another big swig of your Absolute Vodka, so that you will blissfully succumb to your usual drunken stupor.

            Ooh, and by the way, you forgot to mention that Stalin and rasPutin pigs can fly!! naughty, naughty, you little nonevent commissar.

          • MCC ⋅

            Hey, kleine schwaine, aka, obosranye russkiye barkahlo, what a quotation!!! – quote ‘Intelligent and compassionate people like Stalin and Putin should be a source of inspiration from which you could improve appreciably’. If you mean by ‘appreciable improvement’ reopening and upgrade of existing gulag system in russia to finish off the whole russian population, I agree 100%.

            • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

              I meant first and foremost to contrast able men like Stalin and Putin to mentally depleted people like the two of you 🙂

              • MCC ⋅

                kleine schwaine/russkiye barakhlo, did you switch from the Afghan heroin to the ‘krokodil’; the deadly russian ‘improved’ version… Guopsodin pomilyui, ++forehead, foreskin, right, left..++

          • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

            You’re so cute and inspiring when you throw tantrums, my precious little Ukro. Does your wife caress you as your due reward, Bohdan? 😀

            • Bohdan ⋅

              I don’t throw tantrums, imbecile swede – it’s below my dignity! instead I leave that to you, as on many occasions your replies have left me with a very strong impression that they were written by you, frothing with impotent rage at the mouth. Does your Russian KGB lover boy caress you as your due reward, Manturd?

              Go on comrade commissar, tell us once again what a great man that mass murderer Stalin was or how great rasPutin – another murderer – is!!!

            • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

              Bohdan, honey: Adding three exclamation marks and littering your posts with swearwords and/or pejoratives do, in fact, amount to throwing tantrums. As for me, I’m simply having great fun at your expense — it’s called ‘refined amusement’, love. Very far from ‘frothing at the mouth’ indeed.

              Stalin made the USSR a prosperous country with a steadily growing economy and ditto population, standing up to the West and its Nazi/US barbarians. Ditto Putin. Again: Intelligent and compassionate people like these two men could actually turn you into something better than a vile, psychotic little Ukro, sweetheart.

              • Bohdan ⋅

                Dream on, dream on comrade Manturd, you piece of soiled and warped communist trash.

                For your benefit, it is you that is a vile and psychotic brainless commo swede, I use invectives because it is the fitting truth about you and it also was/is the gutter language of your beloved murdering scum J. Stalin and V rasPutin, respectively!!!

                Your ridiculously comment “Again: Intelligent and compassionate people like these two men could actually turn you into something better.” is pure lying propaganda. Dream on, dream on, imbecile.

                It’s time that you face the fact that you were born an idiot and you will happily die one. Ha,ha,ha.

              • Bohdan ⋅

                And another thing comrade. You have the audacity to trash everyone, including larussophobe and her magic blog, who disagrees with your warped view of how great murdering Russian communism is.

                But should anyone disagree with you, then you cry crocodile tears. Also comrade your English is passable, and yet you are pedantic enough to try to correct those, whose mother language is English. Sort of like me correcting you on your command of Swedish – and which not in a million years would I attempt to do. But then I am not in your ‘untermensch’ category.

              • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

                If I where you, Bohdan, my believe would amount to Russia’s coming des-integration. See? My English suddenly improved by leeps and baonds! It’s almost on a par with your fabbuluss troginymetro 🙂

                It might very well be that, yes, I was born an idiot — admittedly, I was grossly ignorant — but it’s fairly evident that I’ve matured sufficiently to make a couple of Psheks and Ukros look, ahem, rather ‘underdeveloped’, if that’s anything to go by.

                Moreover, speaking about your overall immaturity, the REAL reason as to why you resort to your silly invectives all the time is because you get totally lost as soon as you have to explain anything in a rational, sensible manner. Granted, I wouldn’t go so far as stating that your blatant idiocy is congenital. Rather, I feel disposed to believe it’s your vainglory and infatuation with being a boss that’s trashed your common sense. Add to this the poison being provided 24/7 by the Western Corporate Media, and the verdict “vile psychotic” makes perfect sense.

                As regards the prospect of dying an idiot — no idea. So far, I have not been convinced of the infallibility of Russophobia.

            I’ve watched the videos. Would anyone in their right mind get in a car with a Russian driver. Within the space of ten minutes vehicles will be destroyed and mangled, mutilated bodies scattered across the roadway. What the fuck is wrong with you people? But then, it takes a whole lot of brains to keep a vehicle under control. I just wish I had the GoPro franchise in the motherland.

  6. Because of English? McGill in Montreal is mostly french and rank in the twenties…Maybe the poor Russian showing is because Russian is the most difficult language ever, that student in University are still struggling with their mother tongue and that all the educated and smart Russians have been exterminated by the Bolsho….remember, the KGB use to identify hiding Vlassov’s soldiers just by having them say a few words…those that did not talk like mongol baboons where deemed “educated” and thus traitors, just like the Pol Pot gang used to kill all those wearing eye glasses because only total morons are allowed to live in a “worker’s paradise”…

    Now, after the extermination of all the intelligent humans, all Russia have left is cretins like Auriga and the twisting Babushka!

    • siber_troll ⋅

      russian is an old bolgarian language, that means strong turk roots+plenty later tatar words+european terms borrowed for theft european technologies. old mongols called russian language “horde dialect”. i have suspicion russian imperial and its descendant contemporary russian full of semantic traps stimulating slave psycology. that is why useful to speak natural dialects as german, spanish, english, mongol etc.

    • Manfred Steifschwanz ⋅

      Were — mind the spelling here, Ming: “WERE” — you made by Russians? If so, your judgement does have some merit, admittedly. On the other hand, from your blog barf above it’s tempting to conclude you WERE too lazy and stupid to pass the examination in your Russian language course. Just as is the case with Kim Zigfeld’s raging and fuming against Sharapova, your imbecilic noises reveal everything about yourself and absolutely nothing about what you’re “opining” on.

      Doch: Verlier nicht die Hoffnung, kleiner Freund! Aller Anfang ist schwer. Ich brauchte ein wenig mehr als ein Jahr bevor ich gut genug die russische Sprache beherrschte. Gemessen an deine Intelligenz, Ming, zehn Jahren vielleicht.

        Read my lips, kleine schwaine/russkiye obosranye barakhlo – the russian language quickly becomes a local, meaningless dialect; if russians want to commmunicate with the outside word they simply have to speak English – a ‘lingua franca’ of the world. A propos sharapova – poor thing, she truly has a sex appeal of a fly [ask any male] – and it is not her fault she was born unattractive, and those bloody, revolting noises she makes really don’t help. I wonder who is running this pathetic campaign to make sharapova a sex symbol in the USA.. truly the waste of kremlin money….

      Do I have to remind everybody that twenty minutes after the collapse of the soviet union, ALL Central Asian republics dropped a cyryllic alphabet and went back to their own linguistic, cultural and religious roots; hence the slow but inevitable ‘upgrade’ of the russian language to the status of a local dialect….
