Russians Plant Flag on Arctic Seabed
"Two deep-diving Russian mini-submarines dropped a titanium capsule containing the nation's flag on the bottom, symbolically claiming almost half of the planet's northern polar region for Moscow."

No, no, no, no. I don't think so. According to historical tradition the proper way to symbolically claim a chunk of terra-firma is to physically and in person stake your countries flag until it stands up out of the ground on it's own. To do otherwise constitutes a wimpy, cheating maneuver.

Fly by night littering of a titanium capsule doesn't count. America didn't just fly over the moon and slam dunk our flag onto it's surface. You're supposed to walk a few steps and say a few choice words. Popping up a YouTube video of the event may even make believers out of us.

Good try Russia, but come on. You're Russia for Pete's sake. I'd expect better.

    Amen, sister.

    I can't believe this sh*t. As you said, I expect better from Not-So-Soviet Russia.

    Let's go drop a titanium capsule on Russia. I think it should work.
