Mother Russia

The Russians aren't reproducing much. You may find that comforting.  But the Kremlin finds it troubling. So they have organized a youth movement:
Nashi's annual camp, 200 miles outside Moscow, is attended by 10,000 uniformed youngsters and involves two weeks of lectures and physical fitness.

Attendance is monitored via compulsory electronic badges and anyone who misses three events is expelled. So are drinkers; alcohol is banned. But sex is encouraged, and condoms are nowhere on sale.

If you're a loyal Russian,
you don't need much discussion.

For the good of the state:
hurry up and procreate!

OJ Sentenced

Do you get overconfident when you are found not guilty of a big crime - even though you left blood evidence behind?

you might argue away.
- The science is hard to follow.
But it's hard to escape
when you're caught on tape.
- All your denials ring hollow.
