    …and that calendar was more accurate than the one we use today.

    It has been six years since Russia classed beer as alcoholic?! What had they been thinking it was all this time?

    They thought it was a non alcoholic drink all this time? I wonder what tipped them off.

    I use a desktop Chuck Norris calendar that’s considerably lighter.

    Take care and may God bless.

    I believe vodka is the cheapest and most available drink of choice in Russia

    The calendar didn’t need a chain to keep anyone from absentmindedly walking away with it.

    Does it matter where vodka replaces tea and coffee as regular beverages? ;o)

    Rock on! The Ancient Egyptians used a stone casket 481 feet high, weighing in at 7.5 million tons!

    During times of drought, the Mauretanian Crocodile can survive in the Sahara desert in self-dug underground tunnels for months.

    In Germany, there is an idiom: Beer is no alcohol, but a basic food.

    It took the classification committee until 2013 to get sober enough to work…

    1. Who watched the African lung fish for the length of time of hibernation. 2. Who classified the beer as a alcoholic drink, probably a nondrinker or just a reason to tax something.

    #1. I can’t hang that one on my wall on a nail like my present one so I can’t use it. #2. I don’t think I could get comfortable hurried in mud for 4 years. #3. I’d like to know how they kept that one secret for that long. Especially the way I’ve heard they drink in Russia!

    And they really hated it when they had to reschedule an event that they had “chiseled” onto the calendar.
