“We have self-care”: bones, runes, tarot and coffee


In previous articles (“Forces and signs of fate. Prophets, politicians and generals ” и “On doomsday scenarios, false prophecies, and the benefits of sanity”) we have already given five, I hope, very useful advice to future prophets and seers. Soon we will continue the work of educating them, but in this article we will talk a little about "lovers."


"Do it yourself"


The services of professional astrologers, fortunetellers and magicians were always expensive, and in this area, with a high degree of probability, one could run into not a "graduate specialist", but a charlatan who only pretends to be a "learned husband." But even if there was money and a desire to turn to some seer, this was not always possible: for example, on a campaign or during a sea expedition. Therefore, various objects and artifacts appeared and became widely used, using which a person could independently make a “request” on any matter of interest to him. These included, for example, beans, which soon replaced the familiar bones (grains) and carved on bone sticks or pebbles runes.

“We have self-care”: bones, runes, tarot and coffee

Recall the "Word of Igor’s Regiment":

"On the seventh vjat Trojan at once Vseslav lots ..."


I like the arrangement of N. Zabolotsky:

“It was the seventh century of the Troyans.
Prince the mighty Polotsk Vseslav
Threw the lot, looking into the future ... "


"Threw" Vseslav, most likely, it is the bones.


Vseslav Bryachislavich, miniature from the Radziwill Chronicle

Despite the apparent simplicity of this method of divination, there were pitfalls. First of all, it was necessary to be able to ask the question correctly: the answer to it had to be unequivocal: either "yes" or "no." And therefore it was pointless to try to question beans or bones: “Who is to blame?” And “What should I do?”

Working with runes is more difficult. First, decide what it is. Initially, the word meant “all knowledge”, later it was used in the meaning of “writing”, “letters”.

In the translation of the Bible into the Gothic language (Ulfil, IV century), the word rune is found in the meaning of mystery and secret meeting. In the Old Germanic language, the verb runen meant “speak secretly,” and in the Anglo-Saxon language the word run (rune) was used in two meanings - “letter” and “secret”.


Runestones, with the first written mention of Denmark as a state, are kept in the city of Elling

In magic, as a rule, the so-called older runes were used (futark - according to the name of the first six runes). There were 24 of them in all - a series of signs divided into three “families”: Freyja, Hagel, and Thure. Each rune had its own name, and inner magical meaning. Later, the futark was modified into younger runes (Scandinavian - Danish and Swedish-Norwegian versions), of which there are only 16. Germanic and Anglo-Saxon ones were created on the basis of the Scandinavian ones.

According to the Elder Edda, in order to gain knowledge of the runes, Odin sacrificed himself to himself, 9 nights sag pierced by a spear on a tree, and since then the “Father of the Hanged” has become one of his names.

The runes obtained in this way were written by Odin on the shield in front of him, on the teeth of his horse Sleipnir and on the traces of the sleigh, on the paws of a bear and the claws of a wolf, on the beak of the eagle and its wings, in the language of the god of poetry Braga, on the hand of the liberator and on the tracks of the doctor and etc. Then these runes were scraped off, immersed in sacred honey and sent to different parts.

The oldest runic inscription found is the inscription on the tip of a spear from Evre Stabu (Norway) - about 200 g, but Tacitus notes the use of runes already in the XNUMXst century. n e.

By the way, note that some Scandinavian female names end in “runes”: Gudrun, Oddrun. This ending means that this woman can keep a secret entrusted to her - the Normans considered this quality of their wives and daughters to be very valuable (and many would probably agree with them).

Each of the runes has its own meaning, in addition, the meaning of the symbol changes depending on the position - (direct or inverted).

The ancient Icelandic inscription explains the meaning of some runes in this way.

f (fehu) - wealth, good property:
“Fe is a friend’s hatred,
River fire
And the snake trail "

(One by one, three keningas meaning gold.)

u (uruR) - fine rain or scrap iron:
"Ur is a crying cloud,
And ice is powerless
And the hatred of the shepherd. "


th (thurisaR) - tours, giant:
“Tours are women longing,
Mountain peaks cloister
And the husband of the runic milestone. "


Already without any fortune-telling it seems complicated, doesn't it? But still continue.

The easiest way to do such a fortune-telling is according to one rune: it should have given an answer like “yes” - “no” to a short and clearly formulated question. Much more complex - according to three runes, the first of which described the situation at present, the second - indicated the direction of development of a particular event, the third - answered the question of how it would all end and “where the heart will calm down”. In the first case, fortune telling was limited to one attempt, in the second, the answer could raise additional questions, and then the already dropped stones or sticks with runes were again placed in the bag, a new question was asked and the fortune telling continued. Here, of course, it was already required to be a true expert on runes.

With the spread of Christianity, fortunetelling in the Bible became popular: after praying, they opened it at random and read a line that was supposed to be the answer to the asked question. It was such a method that Saint Francis chose to learn the fate (of his and his two comrades).

Coffee grounds


In 1615, coffee was brought to Europe through Venice, which was soon replaced by another overseas drink - cocoa (chocolate). The next step was taken in 1683, when the Turkish army, retreating from Vienna, left many bags of coffee in its camp: the fact that one of the reasons for the defeat was officially declared "excessive consumption of the shaitan drink", and coffee in the Ottoman Empire for a while was even banned. And the crowns of coffee were then "tasted."

But the way of this drink in Europe was still thorny, because the Church opposed its use, the hierarchs of which called coffee "black blood of Muslims", which adversely affects Christian souls. The Capuchin monks found a way out: in order to purify the “sinful drink”, they began to add milk to coffee - this is how the “cappuccino” appeared.

And people who did not like the taste of coffee contemptuously called it “Turkish soup”, “soot syrup” and “decoction of old boots”.

Some doctors claimed that drinking a newfangled drink was extremely unhealthy, however, they also doubted the benefits of tea.

At the end of the XVIII century, the Swedish king Gustav III conducted an interesting medical experiment.


Lawrence Pash the Younger. King of Sweden Gustav III

On his orders, the twin brothers, sentenced to death, were replaced with a life sentence under the condition that one of them will drink a large amount of tea every day, the other - no less than coffee. At first, two professors who monitored the health of the participants in this experiment died, then the king (March 29, 1792), and only then, at the age of 83, the first of the experimental subjects died. Do you think he drank tea or coffee? The correct answer is tea.

In general, as the unforgettable Kozma Prutkov said, "and the wise Voltaire doubted the toxicity of coffee."

In 1672, the first coffee house was opened in Paris. And in the XNUMXth century, London cafes were called "penniless universities", since sitting in them you could learn a lot of new and interesting things during a conversation.


English coffee shop, engraving of the XNUMXth century

And after such pleasant and informative conversations it turned out that at the bottom of the cup with ground coffee there was a precipitate, sometimes taking very bizarre forms. People with a rich imagination could see in it the faces of people, and figures of animals, and astrological symbols - anything. The Italians were the first to guess fortune-telling on coffee grounds in the XNUMXth century, then the weather spread all over Europe. The trouble was that not every person has a developed imagination, allowing you to see at the bottom of the cup "amphora" or "constellation Bootes". And then there were enterprising people ready to do it for them - for the appropriate payment, of course. It was proposed to slowly drink a cup of freshly brewed coffee, thinking about what worries most, and then, taking the cup in his left hand, make three circular movements clockwise and turn it over, placing it on the saucer so that one edge of it appears at the bottom, the other - on the edge.


Do you see anything here?

The method was, in general, not new, because before they tried to do similar things with molten wax or tin. But the process itself was more enjoyable and refined.

The legend claims that some gypsy, fortunetelling over the coffee grounds, predicted to Paul I the term of his death, but personally I relate to this stories skeptical.

Another legend says that Charlotte Kirchhoff prophesied to the young A.S. Pushkin’s service, receiving money and two links, and in 1837 she advised to beware of the “white head, white horse and white man”. But at the same time, it is known that Pushkin was not in the least afraid of a quarrel with Dantes, who was blond, and was not afraid of himself. So, it is quite possible that this legend arose after the death of the poet.

And then cards appeared, fortune-telling on them pushed to the second and even third plan all the other methods available to "amateurs". But professional fortunetellers and fortune-tellers on cards appeared almost immediately, especially gypsies who were previously fortunate enough to guess mostly on the palm of their hand, were especially happy about their appearance.

It is curious that gypsies, as a rule, do not use the Tarot deck, but the most ordinary playing cards.


John Scott Cavell. Gypsy with cards

"To take, perhaps, cards in hand ..."


There are many myths associated with the Tarot deck, it’s enough to say that some “researchers” found their traces in Ancient Egypt, whose priests supposedly encrypted secret knowledge in the symbols of the Major Arcana cards.

Proponents of another version claim that the tarot cards come from 22 letters and 10 Sephiroth of Kabbalah and appeared around the III-IV centuries. BC.

Modern Papyrus Tree of Life Sephiroth

Still others are trying to prove the connection of the Tarot deck with the Vedas.

In fact, for the first time, a game similar to modern card games appeared in China in 1120, when a court officer (his name didn’t keep his name) got the idea to put four groups of symbols on 32 records dedicated to heaven, earth, man and the laws of harmony . Soon this game came to India, the Arabs borrowed it from the Indians. And the first Europeans who got acquainted with the maps were the inhabitants of Spain - they learned about them from the Moors no later than the XIV century. And already in the second half of the XIV century, the Italian artist Nicolo Cavelutstso wrote about the card game "Naib" brought "from the land of Saracens."

The first documented mention of cards in Europe was connected with an attempt to ban them: it was in Bern in 1367.

Starting from 1377, already throughout Europe, playing cards begins to be equated with other gambling, is prohibited in monasteries and is condemned as sinful. In Bologna, at the request of Franciscan preacher Bernardino from Siena, all card decks were burned in 1423. On February 7, 1497, cards, among other “vain” objects, were burned in Florence on the orders of another monk - Dominican Girolamo Savonarola.

All this resembled the notorious “struggle with the mills”, and the prohibitions only sparked interest in the new fun. An example was given by those in power who were not going to deny themselves entertainment for the sake of the "holy fathers" and fanatical monks.

In 1392, Jacqumien Gringonier painted three decks of cards for the French king Charles VI - some of these cards have survived, they are currently considered the oldest in the world.

Some educators have attempted to use maps to educate pupils and students. Thus, Thomas Merner, bachelor of the Krakow Theological Faculty, suggested using them to teach logic - sharing its main provisions by suit (essay “Chartiludium logicae”, 1507).

At the beginning of the 1428th century, the first symbolic cards appeared in Milan and Ferrara - the predecessors of the Tarot. The oldest of those that have come down to our time is the Visconti Sforza deck, which was commissioned by Bonifacio Bembo in XNUMX on the occasion of Bianca Maria Visconti's wedding with Francesco Sforza. These cards did not yet have numbers, letters of the Hebrew alphabet, astronomical symbols, or even familiar names.


Major Arcana Decks of the Tarot Visconti Sforza

The name "Tarot" comes from the Italian word tarocchi (trump card). It appeared about 100 years later than the cards themselves and meant not only a deck of cards, but also a game similar to the modern bridge, which in Italy was called “Taroki”, in Germany - “Tarok”, in France - “TarO”. The cards of this deck are called "lassos" - from the Latin word "mystery" - in alchemy and in homeopathy, so-called compound substances whose ingredients were kept secret. There are 78 cards in total: 56 numerical and court cards of four suits (they are called the Small Arcana and practically do not differ from ordinary playing cards) and 22 symbolic cards are the Senior Arcana, which play the role of "trump cards". The elders are divided into three series of 7 cards: the first corresponds with the intellectual sphere of human life, the second with the moral sphere, the third with material life. Their modern names appeared in the manuscript “Sermones de Ludo cum Alis” - in 1500.

In the XVI century, poets began to use symbolic cards for a poetic description of the character traits of their patron or lady of the heart - this genre was called tarocchi appropriati.

“Facial expressions without changing, noble kings lie”

And finally, in 1540, Francesco Marcolino da Forlì, in his book “Fortune-telling” (“Le Sorti”), for the first time proposed to find out fate with the help of cards, and two methods were indicated: the more complex, using the Tarot deck, and the simpler, using ordinary cards.

And in 1589, Tarot cards first appeared in the case of witchcraft, which was considered in Venice.

In 1612, the author of the anonymous treatise “Glory and Confession of the Rosicrucians” gave new descriptions of fortune-telling using the Tarot deck - “to obtain advice and information about the past, present and future.”

However, the real popularity of the Tarot cards was received after the publication in France of the books dedicated to them by Jebelin and Mellet (both were aristocrats - had the title of count). It happened in 1781. Fortune telling on the Tarot cards became the "calling card" of the famous Alessandro Cagliostro (Giuseppe Balsamo).


Session of “Egyptian Magic” by Alessandro Cagliostro, engraving

Later, the semantic vocabulary of the Tarot Ettailles, “Predictive Tarot” and “Gypsy Tarot” by Papus appeared. In addition to the traditional version of the Tarot deck, many “alternative” ones were created: the Marseille Tarot (card numbering appeared in it), the Egyptian, Ryder-Waite, and even the Salvador Dali deck.

But what “recommendation to clients” I read on one site: “You need to believe in what you predicted, otherwise it will not come true” (!).

I will not comment: I already wrote about this in a previous article: About doomsday scenarios, fake prophecies and the benefits of sanity): the chapter "Life is bad without a sucker."

Take off the mask



Interestingly, many drawings of cards of the classic Tarot deck have “prototypes”. So, for example, the image on the Hanged Man (Traitor) card was copied from an Italian caricature of the XNUMXth century: it, hanging by one leg, depicted condottier Mutsio Attendolo, better known under the nickname Sforza - “Strong” (it became family ) Having been hired by Pope John XXIII for the war with Naples, he sided with the enemy. On the caricature, by order of the pope, it was written: "I am Sforza, a bumpkin from Cotignola"

In the life of Muzio Attendolo there was also an episode related to fortune telling. At the age of 15, thinking about whether he should join the detachment of Condotier Boldrino da Penikale, he decided to throw an ax: if he sticks into a tree, he becomes a soldier, no, he stays at home. The ax, you probably guessed, did not fall to the ground after this throw.


Muzio Attendolo Sforza

The son of this condottiere married the illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Milan, Bianca Maria Visconti, and became the founder of a new dynasty of rulers of this city.


Francesco Sforza

Ironically, he was the customer of the famous Tarot Visconti-Sforza deck, among which was a card with a caricature of his father, which, otherwise, might have been forgotten forever.

No less interesting is the card “Papessa” (Elder Arkan II): on the map of the classic Tarot deck there is a woman in a monastic cassock, in a crown, with a cross and a book in her hands. This picture is an echo of numerous rumors about Pope Pope John - it was described in the article Papess John. The biggest secret of the Vatican (V. Ryzhov).


Papessa card from the deck of Tarot Visconti Sforza

In the picture of the map “Justice” we see the traditional image of the ancient Greek goddess Themis.

On the map "Strength" usually depicted Heracles, or Samson (in this case, there is a broken column next to him).

On the map "Hermit" (sometimes - "Time") you can recognize the god Kronos.

The card "Jester" ("Fool") is currently equal in value to 56 cards of the Small Arcana and symbolizes the soul of a person. The drawing on it resembles the depiction of the vice of Stupidity on Giotto's fresco.


Vice Stupidity. Giotto, fresco from Capella del Arena, Padova


The Fool card from the Visconti Sforza Tarot deck

By the way, outwardly similar to the "Jester" Tarot, the "joker" in a regular deck appeared in the United States around 1857 and was originally called "The Best Trump Jack", then - "Imperial Bower". It was used as the highest trump card in the popular game “yukker” in those years, and in poker it became the so-called “wild card”.


Varieties of the Joker card in American decks of the 2nd half of the XNUMXth century

The joker has nothing to do with Tarot cards, he was supplied with a similar pattern later.

Recall again that both the regular deck of cards and the Tarot deck were created for entertainment (games), the function of the tool for predictions appeared later and has no mystical basis.


Luke Leiden. Card game

A variety of fortune-telling on cards are all kinds of solitaire games (from the French word “patience” - “patience”). According to one version, the first solitaire was invented by the French mathematician Pelisson for Louis XIV. On the other, for the first time, the Bastille prisoners began to lay out cards by suits from boredom. Already in 1826, a book “Collection of card layouts known as Grand Solitaire” was published in Russia.


Solitaire Collection, 1882

In the book of the Englishwoman Adelaide Cadogan “Illustrated games - solitaire” 25 solitaire games were described. In total, there are currently 225 of their varieties, and the most popular solitaire is probably the notorious “Scarf”, which can be played on any computer.

But the cards, nevertheless, can be used to predict the future - if you follow the example of Napoleon Bonaparte, who often sat down to play with his generals on the eve of the battle, and, in the manner of their game, made conclusions about the psychological state of the partners. Those who were inclined to take risks, making high stakes, were sent on the offensive, cautious - to defend themselves or to the reserve.

Napoleon had another story related specifically to fortune telling on maps. The notorious Maria-Anna-Adelaide Lenormand supposedly predicted a quick marriage, a brilliant career and the setbacks that would haunt him in the event of a divorce. There really are two versions of the method of fortune telling Lenormand: some claim that she divined to Napoleon on the tarot cards, others - that on the coffee grounds. There is no documentary evidence of this legend, but, in any case, it is hardly possible to recognize this prediction as “brilliant”. After a divorce from Josephine (December 16, 1809), Napoleon bathed in glory for another three years and entered into an extremely advantageous and prestigious marriage with the princess of the Habsburg imperial house.


Georges Rouget. “The marriage of Napoleon I and Mary-Louise. April 2, 1810. " Versailles, Palace Museum

And the defeat in the next war against the whole of Europe (if not in a year, then in five or ten years) and the betrayal of his comrades-in-arms tired of his endless adventures could have been predicted by many other, more serious people. Provided that he would one day have a desire to listen to them.

In the next article, we will talk about the “prophetic” dreams of kings and commanders and talk about witty and not very attempts to decipher them.

      Something you can agree with, but as they say, not everything is so simple.
      The cards are not as harmless as they might seem, and their appearance in the XNUMXth century is connected with the Jewish Kabbalistic milieu, it can take a long time to talk about it.

      This should be thanked by Catherine II, the cards got accustomed to her, before her there were very severe orders for card lovers - to beat with a whip, cut off fingers, prison, large fines and the like. They understood that playing cards are associated with all kinds of devilry.

      Did you miss an article on stars (astrology) in previous articles - in relation to different situations and on astrology in general, in the first - even some experiments on comparing astrology data with real ones?
      On wax - mentioned, but of little interest.
      In general, you can’t grasp the immensity, it’s such an ironic review dedicated to the New Year, when people begin to think about the future, make wishes, read horoscopes, guess fortune, etc.
      And I wanted you and other readers to smile several times while reading articles in this series, so that everyone who reads would have a slightly better mood. Because there are enough serious articles, including mine. And everyone has enough problems.

                      Once a silly samurai, having drunk sake after breaking up with his beloved geisha, wrote a philosophical treatise "The influence of heroic stories on the development of musical accompaniment in the Japanese traditional theater of No". Of course, the treatise turned out to be lurid, prolonged, albeit with humor ... negative As a result, the whole marketplace booed the stupid writer - both proud samurai, and cunning Haiming, and even a couple of warlike monks lurked around. There was a Chinese ambassador and Korean merchants .. no In short, a complete shame! Around the samurai few crowded, who caught the meaning of an unsuccessful work, argue with the crowd ... And then a steppe warrior appeared. The warrior played a saber, looked at everyone, was silent, and said after a pause: "An artist - everyone can offend ... " stop And the conversation immediately went back to normal! And they forgave the strange author! drinks

          The rite of causing rain to meteorology has nothing to do. As for the Marquis of Visconti di Borgorato, Visconti is her second husband, but I don’t know of which Visconti he is. The main line of Milan's Visconti was interrupted in the XVI century, the Leaning line of Pisa - even earlier. Perhaps from some kind of sideline. There are also Swiss Visconti - Venosta.

      2. There is no divination on wax.

      I don’t believe a damn god at all, but I remember when my son began to stutter very much (a very, even say a word, problem) I slipped with him on a sled in a 30 degree frost to the other end of the city. to some kind of grandfather (they gave the address guys at work) it was the year 1990, my grandfather silently put his son on the threshold (the guy was 5 years old), he pointed me to the corner, get up and be silent. and he poured molten wax over the child’s head into a tin bowl, having examined it, the grandfather said for sure: the dog scared, big. , whispered ... and that's it ... go and say home ... well, I’ve been taught by peasants like that, left a bag of sweets and we left ... my grandfather didn’t take any money, his son began to utter words a day later, and after a week there was nothing . the strangest thing is that the son does not remember anything, neither the dog nor the grandfather. Here is such an experience, meeting with the unexplained with me.

        This is called "suggestive therapy." I was told about a very educated person, a leading engineer of the plant, who could not cure eczema and someone gave him the address of "grandfather". He didn’t want to go, but he met with an old professor in the company and he said to him: go! Does grandfather take money? Ten (this is the 80s, a decent amount)? Few! It would be necessary to 25-50 rubles. But nothing will do. The engineer went, paid, his grandfather gave him a vial of black liquid - smeared it - and with his hand it all took off. He took this “magic bubble” and ran to the chemistry department of a local university to do fluid analysis. What do you think it was?
        Black ink.
        These are the miracles our psyche sometimes does.

And most importantly, the pre-revolutionary family “onion” went, which all watchmakers refused to take for repair.

    The name "Tarot" comes from the Italian word tarocchi (trump card).
    I will allow myself clarification. "Trump" in Italian - carte vincenti. And the word taroch at that time was used as a synonym for the word "stupidity." The version is quite suitable, but the etymology of the word "tarot" is not yet clearly defined. There are several versions of origin, from geographical - tributaries of the Po - Taro river, to mystical - ancient Egyptian "tara" - to "consult".

    The signs of the tarot cards are borrowed from the pagan religion of the Jews - Kabbalah.

    In St. Petersburg, in the metro area Narvskaya, there was a fortuneteller. Rather, where she lived, I do not know, but there in one of the apartments of an old gloomy, shabby house she received visitors. The entourage in her “office” was just a glimpse - under the ceiling there was even some dinosaur similar to a pteranodon, or from papier-mâché, foam roofing felts, skeletons, skulls, stuffed snakes, some mirrors, fumes, sounds, aromas, flickering lighting ... In short, the aunt was arranged as necessary. It was in the early 2000s or in the late 90s, people were breaking in for this lady, even the bandits, according to her, accepted payments for the "roof" with predictions.
    I was sent to her by a former colleague (then many believed in this) on the subject of establishing business contacts for the sake of mutually beneficial cooperation - she, they say, can search for missing persons, solve crimes, etc., well, we, like, also what to find out by our methods.
    Somehow we did not find a common language with her, but I fully appreciated the prospect of such cooperation. Call her potential client to make an appointment. Her assistant learns his name and some incoming information, the caller ID determines the number from which they called, she makes an appointment in two days, and she passes the data to us, we scroll through our databases, give her a small dossier with the names of close relatives, car numbers , addresses, etc. The client comes, is amazed, pays, leaves. And in exchange for us, a free service from the master - answers to any questions, communication with the subtle world, fortunetelling, predictions and more. Such cooperation did not suit us.
    But I’ll tell you this: this witch is an aunt, she is clearly not stupid, artistic, cynical, selfish and unprincipled to the point of horror. I think that in the end she still found her "information partners" and the people bred high-quality and not cheap.
    I told this to what?
    Do not think that all these fortunetellers and fortune tellers are charlatans. No, in the end they are, of course, charlatans, but real professionals in the field of information extraction can very well work for them, and as a result, the information provided by these "psychics" has a real value, since it meets the criteria of reliability and relevance at the time of submission. Theoretically, what's the difference where this information came from - from the subtle world just now or from a banal report of outdoor surveillance on the eve of your visit? It’s another matter that hiring a person for observation will be cheaper for you, but paying the extra money for your entourage, for a performance ... it’s also worth it. In the end, do you go to the theater, to the cinema?
    So sometimes (not always, of course) these same fortunetellers, witches, sorcerers, wizards, magicians, etc. - just good organizers of the production process for the extraction and sale of certain information.

                    And today I will answer !!! During the life of the mustache, he drank vodka only 37 times, mainly for the title! Although this year the record is three times, mainly with inspectors. Welcome to dry red wine. I try to look for Kadarka, better than the Fanagoria spill. I can drink semisweet red from Abkhazia. For example Lykhny. Cognac, whiskey, brandy and mustache did not impress the rest! Ammareti, liquors and others. Too much too cloying. This year I got confused by Cherry filling, three liters per week went nowhere! Moreover, their capitalized! In the underground stands, aronia. I want to achieve a rich sweet and sour taste. If something burns out, I brag.
                    Sincerely, Your cat is a naughty cat!

                        Not a friend! Basically it was faceted glasses, with stars from them 6. I washed the younger lieutenant - in Hussar's champagne !!! There was a fool.
                        And so, if briefly from the history of autobiographical drinking:
                        The first time in three years, I confused a stack of vodka with water!
                        The second - at fourteen a dispute half a liter! Then he pulled his opponents home.
                        Third! When they tried to marry me! I did not see the "bride"! Her dad knew exactly one hour. Hitchhiked to his town, and the man was driving home to Tatarstan. After he voiced his "plans" I choked! And he gave a flask, and I washed down the "news". Then the fool tried to "breathe"!
                        Fourth! This is when I came to Omsk to marry my spouse who did not take place! How did I know that her dad was an ensign! Lard and vodka, in the fuel and lubricants warehouse! I agreed with dad, yes, with my mother-in-law (when I brought her missus on myself), and with the bride - no !!!
                        The fifth is a lieutenant! I remember a can of stews and cucumbers! Everyone remained to fall in the service. I'm the only one who went to sleep home !!!
                        Sixth! He brought cadets to an internship! On the day of "Corner"! Separation of operas + I - against two cans of sprats in a tomato and two boxes of a singed wolf! The opera at home took pity on highlighting the fork and the jar of sprats, having remained in every way to fight with everything else! One of the seven rose to the rank of general!
                        Well, somewhere so buddy !!! Fucking me an alcoholic!

                  That’s how it turns out, he threw about “three glasses of amaretto” and that’s it - now I’m nowhere without this liquor. But I am a lover of other drinks. Here is my beloved daughter, knowing on which drinks my generation "grew", brought me a couple of bottles of the magnificent Crimean port (red) right from the factory, they are standing under the tree, waiting in the wings. And last year, the son sent with an opportunity a liter bottle of excellent Roma, with him they celebrated the New Year. And amaretto, this is so, a tribute to the memories of the "dashing nineties," when everyone attacked an unprecedented drink. My wife went to Ryazan and bought a bottle of nostalgia, well, and sentenced to a couple. smile

    Right Gleb Strizhenov played a drunken white officer and performed these verses with a guitar, leaning on a rack in a tavern.

      They believed.

      Wild times were. I remember that I had a connection with one business. There, people complained to the police that a stinking smell was coming from the neighbors from the apartment. The neighbors seem to be a decent family, they both work, the child ... In short, they broke into them, and there, on the semblance of some kind of altar, lies their son, a boy of twelve, or something, already eaten by worms, in short, for about a month, how died. Hands and feet tied, flies, worms, smell ... And parents at least something. He, like, is reborn and, they say, when the mortal flesh all subsides, our son will appear to us in the radiance of heaven, healthy and impeccable.
      It turned out that their son was sick, he had asthma, or something, in short, they were advised to turn to a healer. He tried it anyway - it doesn't help, the boy periodically suffocates anyway. Then they decided to treat radically. It is clear that the evil spirit lives in the boy, he must be expelled. They built an altar, tied a child and stopped feeding, only watered. What was there to tell in the colors I do not want. The healer came every day, conjured something. And when the boy died of exhaustion and began to decompose, he explained that it was just the demons who were coming out and soon everything would be wonderful. Parents believed.
      When the boy’s body was taken away for an autopsy, and his parents were sent to the isolation ward, there was such a show, the guys told me ... How did the matter end for the parents - I don’t know, the investigation was already completed by another unit. But this healer escaped with a slight fright (two months in “Crosses”) - to prove that he could not take money from his parents, there are, in fact, only his words and the words of his parents, who are clearly not inside. And he stood his ground firmly - yes, I was casting out demons, if you had not interfered with the ritual, the boy would be fine now, would not take money, help disinterestedly, would not bind anyone anywhere, would not lock and in general - it was my business to deal with his astral a personality, not a bodily one, it kind of doesn't interest me.

          I don’t know, I don’t really like this time. On the one hand - yes, young, crazy, everything on the shoulder and nevermind, a sea of ​​optimism and happy stupid things ... On the other hand, how many friends I lost (singed vodka, drugs, drunken fights, gang warfare, prison), how much I had to slurp how much bestiality and meanness I saw, grief, poverty, lawlessness ... No, there was an infamous time, if not cool. He probably chose the wrong place of work ... smile
          Reluctance to recall these horrors now, one is enough.
          Let's have something fun ...
          Here, I remembered. Also a little to the topic of the article.
          This I was already in civilian life (hussars, keep quiet!). It was necessary to help one boy. On New Year’s Eve, he met a girl in a tavern (Mani-Hani, if he remembers it, on Aprashka), he really liked her, escorted her home, picked up the phone, was about to call back the next day, and this phone was lost somewhere. For three days, morning and evening, he was guarding under the address where he had brought her, asking the locals for their verbal portrait and name - without result. This one went to the tavern at the same time, questioned there, sat at the same table - zero.
          We started looking for this girl. Naturally, they asked everyone about the guy - what they talked about, how they behaved, made exact quotes of her remarks recalled, in short, completely gutted. There were still few street video cameras, but we grabbed one, got a, albeit blurry, but recognizable image. The girl was eventually found.
          It was suggested that she came to spend the night with her friend, figured out this friend, talked to her and she told us that her girlfriend had recently met a guy, fell in love with him, gave him a phone, and he vowed to call and did not ring. She sits around the phone for days, is afraid to miss a call, she was exhausted. Well, we decided to cheat a bit. This girlfriend made an appointment for our little girl in a cafe, and we at our same place at the same time, they say, let them meet there, and we will observe from a distance - romance. laughing
          In short, they both came to their place, sat down at tables three meters from each other, but did not recognize each other. She's crazy, he sits drinking coffee. They don’t look around at all. In general, the zealous withstood from us, we with this girlfriend (she also expressed a desire to see and participate) in a cafe. We sit down - I'm opposite the guy, both of them side by side. And I'm starting to rub, they say, do not find your girlfriend, she seems to have lied to you all, forget about her, there are a lot of cool girls, look at least around. Hollywood is solid. laughing I told him: "Now call her loudly by name, only loudly." He breaks down, persuading, probably, about five minutes. Persuaded. He is so loud, to the whole room: "Polina!" At the next table, a spoon falls, he looks around, and sees his unearthly passion, and she has it. For half an hour we sat nearby. There, the meaning of the wiring was that the girlfriend of this Polina rubbed the same thing, they say, look how many normal guys are around, and you, like, do not think that any of them is your destiny and now someone will take you and call you?
          It was necessary to see their physiognomy when they recognized each other - after several hours of acquaintance in a darkened tavern and a short walk through winter Peter, it was certainly wise to recognize a person in two weeks, but they nevertheless managed. Then, of course, they were all told how what happened. But then giggled nobly. Here's a New Year story. good
          PS A case on the topic of the article because our prediction came true - we predicted to these fools that their fate awaits them very close. laughing

      Guys, since 1995 I lived and studied at Elmash, it’s near Uralmash! Passions went different, but in the form it was possible to walk at night along and across. Even the latest scumbags understood, you can’t joke with the cops! Three times I openly intervened in conflict situations - one against the crowd, and the crowd retreated !!!
      A little touch in the description of the situation - only with me they threw grenades twice at us! The first time was training. Although the boy was two years older than me, he lay down on a grenade with his body, saving everyone who was at the Sportivnaya stop. The second case, when they threw a lemon in the DC in Chefskaya. The people were saved by a rotten floor, a grenade fell into the basement and exploded there. Although it was notable for everyone.
      Well, somewhere like that!

    The hostess herself was sitting on the bed in the bedroom, and, resting her elbows on the octagonal table, covered with an unclean tablecloth Richelieu, laid out cards. Before her sat the widow of Gritsatsuev in a fluffy shawl.
    “I must warn you, girl, that I don’t take less than fifty kopecks per session,” the hostess said.
    The widow, who knew no obstacles in the quest to find a new husband, agreed to pay the set price.
    “Only you, please, and the future,” she asked plaintively.
    - You need to guess at the lady of clubs.
    The widow objected:
    - I have always been a pure lady.
    The hostess indifferently agreed and began to combine cards. A draft definition of widow's fate was given in a few minutes. The widow was waiting for big and small troubles, and on her heart lay a club of clubs, with whom the tambourine lady was friends.
    Guessed readily on the arm. The lines of the hands of the widow of Gritsatsueva were clean, powerful and impeccable. The line of life extended so far that its end drove into the pulse, and if the line spoke the truth, the widow would have to live to the Last Judgment. The line of mind and art gave the right to hope that the widow quit the grocery trade and give humanity unmatched masterpieces in any field of art, science or social science. Venus’s mounds on the widow looked like Manchu hills and found wonderful reserves of love and tenderness.
    The fortuneteller explained all this to the widow, using words and terms adopted among graphologists, palmists and horse ladies.
    “Thank you, madam,” the widow said, “now I know who the king of clubs is.” And the tambourine lady is also very famous to me. Is the king marching?
    - Mariage, girl.

                Neither dumplings, nor bacon, the Greeks do not eat. To be honest, going to Greece to eat store dumplings is, of course, cool. They have no buckwheat. The Greeks, who lived for a long time in the USSR, asked us to bring buckwheat and sunflower oil.

      In 1671, the coffee shop by the Armenian Kharokyan was not opened in Paris, but in Marseille. And in 1672, he opened a coffee shop at the Saint-Germain fair in the suburbs of Paris. In 1686, the Sicilian Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli bought this shop from Harokyan and nearby, in the Latin Quarter, opened the first Parisian Le Procope coffee shop, which exists today.

          From Paris to Marseille, about 800 km. Marseille has been making coffee since at least 1644. In 1669, the Turks staged a "presentation" at Versailles. I think that those who were able to buy coffee had coffee too. Since the Armenians opened the shop, then there was already demand.

    Only a narrow circle of initiates knows that there was a secret agreement between Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill and Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, according to which two officers of the NKVD department arrived in England on July 31, 1940, by direct flight from Moscow. Both are excellent servants and even more excellent battle magicians who passed the test of strength during the Spanish Civil War: from 1936 until 1938, Russian battle magicians fought against the dodgy and too bloodthirsty sorcerers of General Franco. Already the day after arrival - August 1 - in the town of Newforest magicians gathered, serving in the army intelligence of Great Britain, the best of the local and the most hereditary witches and sorcerers and military magicians of the NKVD. winked
