A group of 11 super manly men have decided the best way to get a f***-ton of vodka across the Russian/Estonian boarder was to build a gigantic pipeline for it. It works for oil, right?
They decided to do this because vodka is a lot cheaper in Russian, so smuggling it into Estonia means they don’t pay taxes on it and can sell it for a lot more.
The guys sank a pipeline into a reservoir and ended up pumping 6,200 litres of vodka that was of such horrible quality they couldn’t find any buyers in Estonia. They had it stored in a truck which officials finally found, foiling their brilliant plan to take that money back to Russia and buy a ton more vodka.
Because, man, if you had to live in Russia, you’d want to get knackered every second of every day, too. A booze pipeline would scarcely stem the crushing weight of your sorrow. Don’t believe me? Here’s what the Telegraph says:
Hundreds of Russians die each year from drinking ultra-strong homemade vodka, and many who live in the country's poorer regions resort to drinking shoe polish and cologne in an attempt to get drunk.
