The Big Russian Life of Anna Chapman

That she has since become a sex symbol both within and outside of Russia, well, I'm still not sure whether it is hilarious, pathetic, or both (or neither). Regardless, it strikes me as quite bizarre.

Also: holy photoshop, Batman! That Maxim cover is something else.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure one of those blind cave fish could do a better photoshop job than that.

She was a decoy. The real GLG20s are still in the US under deep cover, busying themselves with ever increasing levels of access to military and industrial secrets.

See what being pretty can do to one's interest in becoming not stupid?

That's a deeply sad article, in every respect. Contemporary Russia depresses me. The deserve better than this.

“These guys in the bank told me I can get however much money I need,” she explained to a friend. “I just tell them, and it’s there the next day.”

Yet according to the bank her compensation is well-deserved. She does nothing less than protect the planet from annihilation: “Chapman will address the theme of protecting the planet from asteroids, meteor showers and other factors that affect the civilization of the Cosmos.”
Hahah

The innocent culture of the West has no defense against the cultural weapon of forthright sexuality.

Oh dear.
