Economic crisis might have affected those who are old, wise, and worked hard for their money. However, it hasn't done much damage to young, reckless Russians who simply don't know what money is or where it comes from.
Lake Geneva, Switzerland, November 21, 11:30 PM: Four Russians in their mid-twenties decided to find out through trial whose car was the fastest by racing their Lamborghini, Bugatti, Mercedes, and Porsche at up to 150 miles an hour. The 22-year-old Russian driver of a Lamborghini was the fastest. In his victorious pull forward he hit the Volkswagen Golf of a poor 70-year-old Swiss citizen, who just happened to obstruct the road with his slow 60-miles-an-hour driving. Young drivers of Bugatti, Mercedes, and Porsche drove up to check on their buddy, and fled the scene. The elderly victim was delivered to a local hospital with head injuries and brain trauma; no information was disclosed about the Russian driver. Furthermore, all the information about the night incident was pulled from the news websites, with only short news lines remaining on Russia's RIA Novosti and Gazeta.ru.
The car of the 22-year-old suffered $1.6 million in damages. One must ask: where do the power and stupidity of Russian corruption and conspicuous consumption end? Clearly, not in Switzerland.
