I don't care how much "fun" y'all are having. What I do care about is keeping threads on topic. if you want to start another thread fine. but I've deleted all the off topic posts after my warning. If you guys can't stick to the topic, this one gets locked. I don't mean to be 'mean" but I have a responsibility to keep things on point.FA
HEY!
    FA I must say that I think you are out of line on this one! Too often you seem to complain that we are all being too mean to one another, and now when a few of us start larking about on a tangent you come down like a ton of bricks on us. You know, I dreamt the other night that you were yelling at everyone tho stay on topic -- it seems to have been a prophetic dream! We cannot win for losing - can we ? >:(
    I am deeply hurt and offended by this and I hope that you will at least have the decency to jump onto all  the Royal Family sites that are even a bit off topic!
I thought that you would be happy that we were "all getting along!"
Rskkiya

BACK ON TOPIC
  Lenin is usually pictired as bald in his most famous images - and as a few people here found some photos from his youth we had all gathered to compare them and joke about a bit - For those sensative souls who were so offended with our larks and  previous posts -- I hope that all is now clear to you!

I will repeat: I am not trying to be mean. I want everyone to have fun. BUT, this discussion is about Lenin with hair when he was younger. Others have created the appropriate threads for you to "lark off" all you want to.

FA:
you are 100% right but at the "Windsors" thread, under the "Duchess of Gloucester", people also don`t stick to the topic because they are talking about Prince Charles and Camilla titles if they get married !!?!!!
You "have a responsibility to keep things on point" so I hope you go to that topic and post the same warning message you write here.

Thank you.

Best,  
 
Sergio


There is a thread called "Charles and Camilla" on the Windsors forum, maybe someone should bump it if there's new news.


Helen_azar: Thanks for the Lenin bald head story, I hadn't heard that.

Alexander Ulianov   Lenin's brother



Wonder if he'd have kept his full head of hair had he lived?

Here's an idea:  Why don't you both hit the "Ignore" button with regards to each other's posts?  8)

Ok. Back to topic, with fingers crossed that it stays that way without further unappropriate interruption.
Here's an interesting clip from a lecture on Lenin during the days leading to the coup.  It concerns hair (in this case, his incognito wig):

The decision to mount the coup was taken on October 10th. Lenin had returned to Petrograd disguised as a train engineer. At 10pm he crossed the city for the first Central Committee meeting he had attended since July. The meeting was held in Sukhanov's apartment. His wife, Galina, was a Bolshevik, and had ensured that her husband would not return until late that night. Twelve members took part. They all wore wigs and make-up, glued-on mustaches and false beards. Lenin wore a wig of gray hair. It had been ordered from a wigmaker who worked for the Maryinsky Theater and whose normal clientele were aristocrats. He was puzzled why Lenin wanted a gray model since most of his customers wanted to look younger rather than older. Lenin also wore glasses and had shaved off his trademark beard.

Is that his brother?



At first glance I thought this was Leonardo DiCaprio in "Titanic"

That is his brother Aleksandr. As for the diCaprio appearance, this was discussed earlier in the thread.  I posted a photo of Leo next to Lenin, at my husband's prompting.  He noticed it before I did.

He doesn't look much like Vladimir Ilich. Or Maria Ilnichna either.

Yes, Olga, I noticed that, too. I would not have thought them brothers based on the photos.  From what I've been reading lately, though, the two truly were close and VI really looked up to his older brother as teacher and mentor.

It's interesting to know how Lenin was brought up. Was he brought up in an understanding household, or was he beaten into submission as a child growing up ?

Who other than his parent's disciplined him ?

Thanks in advance for your input.

You can find this info in Nicholas and Alexandra, and other books specifying on Lenin also, I presume. I dont have my N & A book right now, but I believe they fought alot and that it wasnt a calm household.
