"Got this thing directly addressed to me the mail from Ukraine... no idea what it is. Please help!"

"I don’t have additional info besides that it was sent to me from someone I do not know... so confused how someone from Ukraine got my address and first and last name."

Writes someone in a subreddit I like, "What is this thing?" Here's the photo:



Somebody in the comments says, "I really wish someone would send me random kick-ass stuff like this."

Then, amazingly, as so often happens in this subreddit, someone comes a long and identifies the thing. It's this.

And, for more of the greatness of Reddit (another subreddit I like)... here's a dog retrieving its toy:

That isn't a dof retrieving its toy, those are Belgian Malinois being trained. They are used for security and combat. Lots of youtubes of them. They really do some amazing stuff.

That’s what Obama sent Ukrainians as military aid, along with 3-months if free Netflix

Up to 7 billion in lost aid, that even the imf was somewhat interested in

mikee said...

That aid money wasn't lost, it was directed to the uses deemed most fit by the recipients.
And calling that theft, or corruption, or needful of investigation, is just crazy talk!

"so confused how someone from Ukraine got my address and first and last name"

No reason to be surprised. A bunch of Nigerian "princes" found me years ago.

I like the flying dog. Reminds me of neighbors Siamese cat who would jump out of the tree and knock down a flying bird.

I'm more into shield maidens myself.

CG, from the dof's POV he's retrieving his/her toy from the tree.

What goofy two-leggers think is their problem

Tarn River catfish (an introduced species) have been launching themselves out of the water onto land to snag rock pigeons (another introduced species) at Albi in southern France. All the humans did was bring the two into proximity.

Far more likely that someone invented that story in an attempt to to make a "what is this thing?" story interesting.

Vikings had helmets. Who knew. Kirk Douglas did not wear one in The Vikings. Maybe they used them for pillows.
