* Communism (not that bad really - just badly done, as usual).
* No country ever being able to occupy it (too large area, too many russians that keep coming to kill you).
* Drunk russians (usually men) killing themselves in stupid ways. "Hey look at me doing!....." Running Naked in a Field of Flowers
* Boris Yeltsin dancing
* Nuclear f**k-ups (Chernobyl, nuclear submarine accidents, the list goes on & on)
* Matryoska dolls
* Tetris
* Its space program
* Chess players like Karpov and Kasparov

Doctor Zhivago crossed my mind, but apparently Russia had little to do with that movie (apart from the storyline).

Lada!

Oh and by the way the nuclear f**k-ups aren't that unique to Russia... just google around a bit.

Guess you forgot about the Russian scientists that made a few discoveries too:

Alexander Borodin
Friedrich Konrad Beilstein: one of the people that made my line of duty possible.
Vladimir Barmin: the guy who invented how to launch rockets

Ohw well thats just 3 of the extensive list of scientists that contributed very significantly to this world. Strange how we mostly forget what Russia contributed to this world.

Ohw yeah we forgot about Dmitry Mendeleev who invented the periodic table
