    Kitteh as always a wonderful post.
    I even got a bit moist in my eyes of the Soviet scientist story.

    Maybe I`m wrong, but I doubt the Soviet scientists would have been able to grow and harvest enough food to survive on before they starved to death. This would also have been complicated by the fact that it was probably winter time. Maybe they could have eaten the seeds themselves, but it probably wouldn`t change much.

    Disregard my comment below as the siege lasted two and a half years, and apparently it was more than just seeds, their were roots and fruits also being stored.

    Would like to clarify that the Santa one is actually about the North American Aerospace Defense Command, not the US Air Defense Command.

    I don`t see why the scientists couldn`t have grown the plants and harvested the seeds from the new plants. I do it every year.

    The Leningrad one has a movie about it I`m pretty sure. @honkeylips they were trapped indoors and did not have soil, enough water, or even enough sunlight to grow any plants.

    The Zappa one is really nice too, gotta love Frank Zappa.

    And the women of Nagpur one is totally badass

    Some are false. Try guess which... I think you`ll be pleasantly surprised.
