I'm not familiar with Doctor Who, but don't they change history a little bit but not fully? Or is it completely?

If this audio-book ends with any of the Romanovs dying, especially the children, I'm going to throw hands with this new Doctor Who team and the bloody writer.

Although I will be fine with the team helping them escape, beating their would-be-murderers asses (a thing we all want to do) and letting them go into hiding. Make the world believe the Romanovs are dead in the Doctor Who universe; better alternative then the one we're living.

And if not...see with something like this, you can't just write about leaving them to their fates. This is the problem with that live action Anastasia with time travel thrown in.

I can't believe how people accept that narrative of the bullets bouncing off the corsets and not killing the girls more quickly and more humanely. What percentage of the bullets would have hit one of the stones and bounced off? More likely a bullet would have bypassed a stone or smashed it and continued on or pushed the stone into the body. Seems like common sense to me. I've never handled a diamond but you can break emeralds and sapphires easily with a hammer. That's how you mine them. More lies from the killers, methinks.
Last of the Romanovs by Jonathan Barnes
The TARDIS lands on Earth near to an eerie and familiar house... with the only witness a regal man watching from inside through a broken window. Leaving the ship the crew immediately find themselves in trouble - because they have landed in Ekaterinburg early in the twentieth century. The man inside the house is Nicholas, the last Tsar of Russia, imprisoned with his family... and one of the most notorious crimes in history is just about to happen.

I was watching the election episode of Blackadder the Third and I noticed the joke that when the "Standing at the Back, Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party" guy is explaining their policies, he DOESN'T qualify that "free corsets for the under-fives" means little girls. Heh Heh Heh.

1. The reason the jewels were not found was that they were actually sewn into their corsets, so then when they tried to find out why the bullets were bouncin off them, they tore open the corsets to find the jewels.

2. I believe that they weren't mear jewels, but diamonds.

My in-law family is just like this.  Honestly its nice to have an open minded family.  My wife and I bought a bidet for our toilet best thing ever and our in-laws were surprisingly obsessed.  They bought one after visiting, and now the whole family relies on them.

I think its normal among goofy families.  Nothing wrong with it, so long as its not the topic at Koto Japanese Steakhouse during the hibachi performance

The Imperial Family / Plaque to commemorate Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna

The Riverdale Historical Society (Toronto, Canada) has announced they will erect a plaque next fall at the site where Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna died in 1960. 

After emigrating to Canada in 1948, the Grand Duchess lived in a small farmhouse in Cooksville, outside Toronto.  After the death of her husband, and in failing health, she lived with a family of Russian emigrés in a small apartment above a hair salon in Toronto at 716 Gerard Street East where the plaque will be installed.

Awesome video, gleb.  That a bombed out shell can be restored to such splendor using the various techniques is amazing.
