Experience the Joys of the USSR





(Photos below from azillphotos.)

Many of you may be a little too young to remember the communist Soviet Union. It was a jolly place where munchkins and good witches . . . whoops, sorry. I must have been thinking of Oz. The Soviet Union was a little less magical. In fact, you could say it was downright depressing at times. And I hear the toilet paper was really scratchy.

But now those of you who missed out on the fun have the opportunity to experience the delights of the Soviet Union first hand. A new theme park has opened in Lithuania in an underground bunker once used by the Soviet army. For a mere $220, you can live the life of a Soviet citizen for two and a half hours!

During your stay, you'll don threadbare clothing, watch 1980s television shows, wear a gas mask, be forced to learn the Soviet anthem, eat a typical Soviet meal, and undergo an interrogation and medical check.

Sounds like a good time to me! Read more about it here.

"oops...must have been thinking of Oz."

You're a Wicked fan, too!?! I saw the musical when it came to Atlanta!! The ending in the book was waaay better, though.

Wow, that is really cool! It's important that people who expierianced that get to pass on their experiances to younger people, like us. It's the same for people who survived WWII, they are dying out. If you have great-grandparents, ask them about it. Many of them will remember it.

well, she could have been referring to the book/movie of The Wizard of Oz.
that is a pretty awesome theme park, hahaha. We need more like those
(lol. calling it a "theme park" instead of a "museum" is a sneaky way to attract people who hate history)

Oh...kay.
This tops the weird-o-meter for "theme parks" but yeah, I think we can say it's a museum. But the $220 kind of wigs me out; who's going to pay that to get sort of tortured?

...people are strange.

I wouldn't spend 220 dollars on it (maybe $20 or $40, I would), but it sounds kind of fun. I can think of a number of people off the top of my head who would go. ^^
