    On the Russian Far East island of Sakhalin, it's totally normal to open your front door and find a wall of snow on the other side. One local tried to kick down the wall of snow, only to poke a small hole through it, but he was able to see his barking dogs on the other side. Winter in Sakhalin usually dumps between 2 and 9 feet of snow on the island.

  • Siberia Kids Pour Buckets of Water Over Heads in Winter to Stave Off Flu

    As part of a traditional method to prevent influenza, Siberian schoolchildren often pour buckets of water over their heads outside in the winter, when temperatures hover right around 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course, the children sit in a piping ho Russian sauna first. This traditional remedy was practiced for hundreds of years and Siberians swear it works. At the beginning of the academic year, parents have to confirm whether they permit their children to join such cool outdoor activities.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
