So, friends — today will be a post about everyday things that remained from the times of the Soviet Union and that are typical symptoms of Soviet poverty and give its owner the rogue. What is most interesting — in fact, people can be wealthy enough, but for some reason (whether habit or something like that) continues to use these things, why it happens is a big mystery to me. Whether habit or something else.
Remember — if you don’t want in the eyes of others look terrible rogue, all these things and habits you need to urgently get rid of. In today’s post — the story of them) make Sure you check out the article below, write your opinion in the comments, and of friends added do not forget. And telegram channel also subscribe)
1. Kombucha on the table in the kitchen.
A terrible thing that appeared in the USSR and in some places continues to be used. For those who don’t know what it is, briefly — in three-liter jar, covered with yellowed gauze, poured tea and placed the part of a substance called “tea mushroom”. Then there’s all the oxygen, and the exhaust produce a drink, something reminiscent of kvass. Once back in the USSR I tried this drink (treated neighbors), but when I saw how he turns out, hunting to drink it is gone — Bank of Kombucha. looks extremely disgusting and reminiscent of any hospital ssaninu, or pickled pancakes, or some pickled alien from the Cabinet of curiosities. And Yes, it is inside alive and periodically propertyval in water bubbles.
If you still for some reason continue to use Kombucha — immediately discard it, along with a jar from the balcony, do not frighten his guests.
2. Blue sports wear and t-shirts-alcoholics.
Surprisingly, many old habits are continuing to wear blue sports clothes a La the Soviet Union — something similar is still made in local sewing factories. If you don’t want to look like a rogue, never buy — now knitting factory produce many beautiful, inexpensive and comfortable clothing.
This also can be attributed to stretched t-shirts-“alcoholic” — in the Soviet Union wore them because the spaghetti strap was the cheapest available, and since Mike’s so firmly associated with poverty. By the way, in the movies of Perestroika Soviet alcoholics (take heroes Brondukov) — all entirely go in these shirts.
3. Tableware with gold and flowers.
If you have still preserved the old Soviet sets with pseudo-gold stripes and pictures in flowers — immediately dispose of them. Or at least never put them on the table when you have guests — do not disgrace. We all know that these sets remained from the Soviet times, where they bought just to fill the cabinets, and most likely when you move to a new apartment you just gave it away parents “will for the first time, save money!” Now this dish on the table looks creepy in nosebridge.
4. Things, rolled up blue tape.
If you have at least one thing “repaired” with blue tape — get it now in the trash because it looks scary, covering themselves in blue duct tape sneakers I have not seen even in impoverished Afghanistan. In the USSR, where all the years existed a permanent trade deficit, it was considered normal to duct tape, for example, loose pickguard kitchen knife — but now, when kitchen utensils are sold everywhere and cost a penny, it looks awful and says a lot of unflattering things about the owner.
5. Boxes with trash and rusty nails in the bathroom.
In the apartments of Soviet panel houses have a double cupboard in the toilet — in which many still continue to keep rubbish from Soviet times — mainly all sorts of rusty nails, files without handles, pieces Cycling chambers, rusty staples, Soviet ploskostyami screws, aluminum coils of wire, wooden spools from under the threads, wine corks, metal balls of mysterious origin and the filing of a magazine “Science and Life” for 1986-1989.
All this stuff it’s time to throw if you don’t want to look in the eyes of their guests as rogue-scopitones. And in General — it is better to regret what is at hand there some sort of screw this and go buy it in the khozmagazin than 30 years to see this rusty stuff.
6. Three-liter jars in the attic.
Many families now are not engaged in the preservation of vegetables and fruits, but of habit, continue to keep banks on the mezzanine. Dreary rows of three-liter cylinders can also is stored in the wardrobe on the top shelf that looks especially ridiculous. If you do not conserves compotes — immediately dispose of all these banks, they just take up more space.
7. Rubbish on the balcony.
In the USSR it was accepted to clutter up the balcony with nonsense, like a frame from a broken Bicycle “Eaglet”, old jackets and broken ski “Telekhany”. If you on the balcony still stored stuff — it has to be emptied in the trash, these days it is very embarrassing to have a cluttered balcony or loggia.
8. The carpet on the wall.
And finally, perhaps the most obvious sign of the Soviet poverty is to have a home on the wall carpet. Carpet one of its kind, able to transform any interior in Soviet squalor and has no useful function — only collects on the wall the dust. If you still have the carpet on the wall — it is an urgent need to roll and throw.
Here’s a list I managed to do all of these things give their owners rogue hails from the USSR.
What about the list? Can I add to it?
Write in the comments interesting.
