That guy with the green cap is a real bonehead in the tool-use department. I think Arnold is going to have some major flaw that causes him to turn on them and kill them all.

I learned Cyrillic in a high school Russian class , so I stopped to slowly sound out the last one word comment I saw on the page letter by letter sesame street style. "Супер!!!!!", phonetically is "Super!!!!!!".

I was thinking before I got to the end, the best you may be able to do if building a Terminator on the fly out of scrap parts would be to point and tell it go kill those guys.

The link comes back to me as Ñåðâåð ïåðåãðóæåí, ïîïðîáóéòå çàéòè ïîçæå\

If I go to via, what am I looking for?

I can't read Cyrillic, but "Ñåðâåð ïåðåãðóæåí, ïîïðîáóéòå çàéòè ïîçæå" looks to me like "This site has been MeFi'd to death."

I do like the way the newly formed terminator has a swig of vodka before he gets his skin and face.

This is well done. I like the tiny details, like the officer checking his watch, or the dog absconding with a hand.

They should have gone with the head with the big nose instead.

I suspect some of the characters to be actual persons.

Awesome post, juj.

Well, this completely explains the T-800's Germanic accent. Clearly it was programmed to sound at least vaguely local when asking directions to the Führerbunker.

Those guys are quite articulated for russians.
