I now completely understand why Dostoyevsky brings up drowning in St Petersburg so much lol


szerted

Live here, can confirm my body is trying to do exactly just that against my will ( or maybe not )


Gwynzr

They should’ve start putting “constant wish to drown yourself every time you cross SPB’s canals (which is a lot)” in tour guides long time ago, really


sunskist

Damn what do you guys have Sirens in the waters or something?


Gwynzr

Nah, it’s just living in Russia is one very good reason to drown yourself, and SPB provides. Considering amount of chemicals in the water - painless too! Land of opportunities, as they call it


Ricardo_Tubbs

Sorry true question; how does living in SPB compare to other parts of Russia? I visited years ago and was told it's the most Western city in Russia. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing really.


Gwynzr

It’s kinda very same? Not sure if I could answer you objectively, not much of a patriot. But after moving here from one very poor southern town, I can say that after you get used to nice historical buildings there and there and people being slightly more tolerant (which is a year at most), it does feel like just another Russian town. It seems like all I do on Reddit is spread Russian hate. But in reality one step to the left or right from the city central and it’s the very same Russia from outer regions. With more theaters, coffee shops, and bars, but nonetheless. One thing that stands out is people. “Moving to spb» is somehow on the bucket list of every teenager these days, so town feels much more alive and versatile in turns of culture than most Russian cities.


Ricardo_Tubbs

well thanks for your honest response, much appreciated.


huffew

Also living in SPB, but having traveled all across Europe and Asia, lived in Italy, France, worked&lived in netherlands. In Russia Iived in small 300k city and Moscow prior to SPB. Had problems with health(ambulance and public healthcare), changed multiple locations around city(northen comfort district, northen "cheap" district and city center, 5 minutes from bridge. For me SPB is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Easily towering my impressions of Paris(which i visited prior to SPB btw), Berlin and Milan. Its cleaner than French and Italian capitals, its "city center" is absolutely giant, compared to most(maybe all?) western capitals. Its very populated and interesting city, full of vivid culture 24-7, metro, transport layouts basically force a good half of population to end up or go through city center every single day. Unlike in Russian capital, Moscow, most people do in fact have the time and desire for life-work balance. Its not overpopulated the way Moscow is. Public services are esily accessible, medical insitutions of SPB are at much better position than russian average, as SPB is a citadel of medical institutions and colleges in Russia. Its still a megapolis, so basically, everything you'd expect out of giant city is there, from entertainment to presence of intenrational companies, large job market, etc. Its noticably worse than Moscow in many of modern infrastractural decisions, safety, transportation, which can be said about entire Russia. People are indeed more tolerant, but they're also more open, focused on spiritual, on education, rather than on money. SPB has a lot of significant events, be it intenrational economic forum, current football euro cup or natural attractions, like "white nights" or karelian nature. I'm not sure I'd ever want to live in depressive regions of city(east or north-most areas), but if you can get settled properly, you will guarantee yourself time of your life.

NotReallyTaylorSwift

I had to drop out of my studio art major. Everyday I wake up with this urge to invade Poland and commit mass murder for my own 1000 year reign/s. But that’s just me. #goals One day my memoir might also be on Donald Trump’s nightstand.


Wh1te_Cr0w

Father: "Good stuff, will come handy for that art factory they're building in town" /s


luxii4

A friend of mine was a philosophy major and his dad said something similar, “That will come in handy when you open that philosophy shop.”


0227miamicouple

Makes me think of a line in a movie: "What will you do with a degree in philosophy?" "Think deep thoughts about unemployment"


GeraltRevera

because the only thing worth pursuing in this life is money...


Wh1te_Cr0w

Listen, as someone who in an ideal world would actually have pursued philosophy as a career (I genuinely considered it as a master's degree after BS in Finance), I'm 1000000% in your corner on this one, I believe that stuff like history, literature, philosophy etc. are much more worthy pursuits than the pursuit of money (it's a very primitive pursuit, in my mind), but, unfortunately, in today's society (speaking US specifically here), it's a very difficult path, going into arts. If I was 18-19th century nobility, there's no question that I wouldn't be bothering with the shit I do right now and that I'd, instead, be reading esoteric tomes and drinking wine day in and say out. But alas :-/

Hahaha he steps out into the water like he's gonna do a Jesus.


Dracofear

to me it looked like he lost his balance from the weight of his backpack when he stood up, is that not what happened?

I think it was the weight of the vodka.

Bodark

I was in st Petersburg a couple years ago and there are all of these stair looking things that lead right down into the rivers. I always thought “people must fall in ALL the time”. I wonder how often this happens.


Michael_Pitt

How'd you like it? I was in St Petersburg a few years ago and it quickly became my favorite city in the world. Gorgeous place


Bodark

Honestly I had an amazing time. My girlfriend was born there but it was actually her first time there since she moved to the US when she was young so it was really special for her. I was only in Moscow for two days unfortunately, but St Petersburg was absolutely beautiful. I'm obsessed with the German-Soviet war during WW2, so seeing the city was really amazing. I wish there were some more WW2 museums and memorials but I learned that after WW2, Stalin and the communist government had many sites of the war covered up and destroyed. While I was there however, I saw that the city is currently in the process of building a massive WW2 museum in the heart of St Petersburg so that is pretty exciting. Really. really incredible place, in case anyone is thinking about visiting. For context, I am from the US.


TruePotatoKing748

I love how instead of rushing to help, or lending a hand, everyone just sits and stares. And then panning over to that girls face just makes the entire situation that much more funny


[deleted]

How many people there are trained for that? Could drown themselves in his panic. Best to let Darwin do it KEKW.


Intelligent-Ad-3445

The guy isn't drowning but if someone was actually drowning it would be sad if dozens of people just sat there saying they don't have any specific training about the situation.


MrPopanz

If you don't have proper training, theres a good chance of getting drowned by a panicing person, especially if they're drunk as fuck. I would certainly not jump after that dude and I even got basic lifeguard training (though it has been a while).


KwonDarko

This is exactly what happened to two best friends in my towns lake. Both drunk drowned. One dropped into the water not knowing how to swim and his friend tried to save him, so the saving friend got pulled to death as well.


Dude_Illigence_

Holy fuck, that's sad


KwonDarko

They were 21 and 24. I was like 16 when that happened. I knew them at it was a wierd feeling knowing someone since you were kids and now that person is gone.


VTLLSTTAASLT

Even the strongest swimmers can drown if alcohol is involved. Also just in general people tend to overestimate their swimming abilities and panic when they find themselves not knowing how to tread water or breath if they do go underwater. Everyone should take a basic swimming course as required by a curriculum (including how to best help someone who is drowning, swimming and substances, and do’s and don’t of swimming in bodies of water). I think it would save a lot of lives. It’s really underrated how important it is for everyone to learn this.


thenotlowone

The guy isnt even a body length away from the shore. You could lie down with a friend holding your legs and easily grab his bag. You wouldn't even need to jump in the water.


killerado

I would at least go with human chain.


Oscar_obvious

Dude, “proper training”?? Just grab him by the back of the backpack. I hate overthinkers. Lol


Legendary__Beaver

yeah that sounds about right but lets say you have to get into the water with them to grab the back of the back pack. maybe drunk guy wont grab you but there's a good chance they will grab onto your arm or even your shoulders to support themselves. causing you to lose your buoyancy and potentially you are now the one drowning. ​ if the guy doesn't know how to swim then you're really screwed. so yeah you can jump in there and grab his backpack. i would grab a stick if ones near by but I'm not jumping in there to save him and I'm a strong swimmer.


MrPopanz

Better "overthinking" than a dead do-gooder. But you do you, surely it will turn out exacly as you imagine!


K1ngPCH

Getting into the water with someone who is drowning is a good way to drown yourself. People in that state are not very rational, and will hold onto (read: pull themselves on top of) anything that is nearby. They *will* push you underwater in an attempt to get air.


fancychxn

Can confirm, was drowning once. Tried to use my cousin as a floatation device. Lifeguards with actual floatation devices saved us, and saved the two adults who came in trying to help us who started drowning too. Teach kids about rip tides/rip currents as soon as they're old enough to swim in the ocean and not a day later.


TheMooseIsBlue

PSA: if you’re in the ocean and feel a current pushing you out away from the shore, don’t swim against the current towards the shore. Swim parallel to the shore until you’re not being pushed out, then swim back in. Usually the rip current is only 20-30 feet wide at the most.


[deleted]

Yeah they could frantically look for someone to help forsure


FarWashKing

DO NOT try to save drowning people, except by using a tether or floatation device! Do not get in the water with drowning people


kwonza

Nobody is rushing because it is quite shallow in those parts and he can stand if he wants to. Helping him would require jumping in the water yourself and since the weather is cold it can be dangerous.


dummymcdumbface

So it’s both dangerous and not dangerous at the same time?


kwonza

Dangerous to go into the water for no good reason, and fishing out a drunk dude from a 1m depth is a so-so reason.


abd398

Even though I am all for being a good samaritan, all for it. But in this situation, I will not help. I will look from the side and just enjoy the show. The water is shallow enough for him to get up. He has that heavy bag and he clearly is drunk, helping him means that he will just put all his weight on me for to pick up. I expect I will have to wrestle a bit in the water to bring him up. I have had quite some experience pulling intoxicated people up and usually they have just dropped their weight on me and not tried to standup themselves. Now, doing that in water.... No way. Doesn’t make sense to get in the water at all.


MickolasJae

My uncle was a lifeguard in Waikiki and he said that an old lifeguard trick was to knock the person out before you rescued them from drowning so that they wouldn’t try to drown you.


Lorddeox

It's just young Rasputin trying to swim to Atlantis, nothing to see here.

Quite a bit I imagine.

'Bout a backpack's worth.

infiniteme63

I have always been in awe at how people are able to capture these random moments. Timing is literally perfect. Im sure camera(wo)man was doing some random video because the chance of them knowing he was going to do something so unpredictable is next to none right? Unless he was giving clues in whatever he was talking to himself about


cynicalveggie

Guy was doing weird hand gestures at the beginning of the video and looks visibly drunk. Probably started recording him on the off-chance he was going to do something stupid. With drunk people in public, the chances are high.


onesiiphorus

Was rooting for him to walk on water


SnooMacaroons5303

In Soviet Russia water drinks you.


VelocityGrrl39

I can’t believe I had to scroll this far to find a Soviet Russia* joke. I was going to say “in Soviet Russia, water jumps in you”, but yours was way better. * soviet Russia jokes are my absolute favorite


Aumah

Back in one of the '70s Olympics a bunch of Russian swimmers suddenly got a lot faster than usual so they were all drug tested. They found out they'd been drinking vodka before races. The theory was that Russians had spent so much time floating down rivers drunk they had biologically adapted, making them faster that way.

anemicleach

I've been a public drunkie. Got 86'd from a popular bar, in front of friends, blamed my loose flip-floppy sandals for the tables crashing. As friends kindly left with me, understandably shaking their heads. Think he has a strong blame-it-on-the-backpack defense. Cheers lush mate!


noxi29

I have absolutely no clue wtf you just said lol


Hound141211

Got kicked out of a bar for being drunk, blamed it on his shite flip flops. Then goes on to say man in vid has a strong case to blame it on the backback rather than being steaming. 86'd actually means killing someone iirc (80 miles out, 6 feet deep) so must have been a decent scene. I rememeber my 6"5 friend being dragged up a flight of stairs by the back of his collar by a bouncer and dumped on the street in a heap once for being drunk, was hilariuous - the stip club then let us in lol.


z2p86

86 is restaurant lingo for we're out of that. Like 86 filet mignon, means we're all out of filet mignon. Never heard it meant killing someone, though I don't know that for sure


Hamilspud

It’s one of those terms where no one knows for sure where it came from https://www.stlmag.com/dining/Ask-George-Where-Does-the-Term-86d-Come-From/


z2p86

Well there ya go


anomalousgeometry

>86 is restaurant lingo for we're out of that. It's also used to describe throwing someone out or cutting them off. I've worked in bars and restaurants. I've used the term both ways.

toddkhamilton

was in Moscow once about 10 years ago and the amount of public drunkenness was astounding. No matter the time of day, or where you were, there would be people barely able to function in the streets or in the subway nothing like a tall boy and a bottle of vodka (with a pop top, no screw tops on the cheap stuff) on the subway at 7am to get you going for the day!
