    Explosion in Petersburg!

    There was an explosion in the McDonald's on Nevskiy Prospekt!

    http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/world/BO43615/

    The scary thing is that I know the place and have been there several times myself...

    What a horror! I did not even know that there was a McDonald's in Калифории! Maybe the tons of lard used in MacDonad's food was a a source of spontaneous combustion!!!! Or worse, a 900 lb. customer blew up!!!!

    I was just talking about going to St Pete at the very moment I saw this topic?

    That means you are indirectly responsible for the explosion. Nice one DDT

    As if the bad food and heart attacks weren't enough reason to avoid McDonalds... I hope this doesn't affect my study abroad program in Russia this summer =(

    There has been a number of small explosions like this in St. Petersburg. One was last weekend in a supermarket. It's thought to be mafia/organised crime related. The Militsia, are using their favourite word 'hooligasnism' as usual.

    No one died, it's not a big deal, and it's not going to affect anyones travel plans, especially those months and months away.

    no, I read the article in a Norwegian newspaper and since the fewest of us read Norwegian, I did a search on google for the news story... and ended up with the aforementioned article

    Re: Explosion

    Well, I live in the United States and not too long ago there was an explosion in Kansas City Missouri, or was it on the Kansas side? I dont remember, but I live outside of the city and I could see the large smoke cloude from about 45 miles away, and the next morning I could taste the pollution in the air. I think it was a paint factory, were they mix the paint and the paint thinnner...

    Но это совсем другое дело. Взрывчатка в Макдоналдсе была умышленно установлена, а этот взрыв, о котором ты говоришь скорее всего было несчастным случаем.

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Скорее всего, да. Некий сумасшедший знаток огнестрельных оружий вторгся в ресторан, чтобы убить всех американцев, но ему удалось только убить немца, который в конце концов не умер, а наоборот, он выжил!

    КСТАТИ, как русские относятся к Макдоналдсу? Я где-то слышал, что они считают тем, чтобы жрать гамбургеры в Макдоналдсе модным (аналогично тому, как на западе люди относятся к хорошим ресторане ЛОЛ) в отличие от того, как на западе большинство людей только посещает Макдоналдс когда у них или мало времени, или мало денег. Не знаю, правильно это или нет, скорее всего меня обманули. Так что объясни всем идиотским западникам красивую истину этого дела! Нам надо нам надо нам надо знать! ! ! ! ! нДана;л

    There was a boom about McDonalds in 1990 when the first one had been opened in Moscow. There were queues which people had to wait for hours to get there. It was a rather expensive "restaurant" as it had been called. The price of the Bic Mac was 3.50 soviet roubles. (a plane ticket to Sochi was 30 roubles).
    People had been going there "to feel the taste of the West". It was interesting then because only selected few who had been lucky enough to visit some capitalist country were familiar with it.

    Now it's just another eatery (and not among the better ones).
    As far as I am concerned, I think that the term "junk food" fits perfectly for McDonalds.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    ВО! Хороший ответ Рамиль! Ты на самом деле заслуживаешь уйму денег!

    Меня радует, что русские думали, что Макдоналдс - хороший пример западной культуры! Это значит, что Макдоналдс ---- loss of transmission.
