2007 Russian Riots in Estonia and Estonian Humour in English



I had to find those 4 pictures (widespread on Internet) again, looks like London rioters are not so original.

From a widely circulated e-mail in May 2007 in Tallinn, Estonia. Billed as "Estonia's most expensive advertising campaign ever."


Sprite boy became the poster child of the first night of riots in April 2007. What makes this photo so iconic is that one of the items he looted were maxi-pads.







At last.
A mashup of the Tallinn Riots with 300. Very much loved by Estonian police.

Beginners Movie Trailer and my dream about closing gates



Watched it and loved it.
I slept an hour before going to the movies, saw a nightmare about my father dying and enormous big gates...

the door

...closing before we managed to drive through them. Me and dad where in the car, he was driving and suddenly he didn't move, I understood he was dead.
I had a Déjà vu moment in the cinema, the movie was a lot about the dad and in the end he dies. My dad is very sick also.
What does dreaming about closed gates mean?


1. there are problems ahead.

2.To dream that the gate is closed parallels the notion that you are stuck in the current stage or phase of your life where you are unable to make progress. There may be some difficulties at hand which you lack the power and ability to resolve. Thus, these hindrances are keeping potential for better opportunities away.

3.At this point, you feel very frustrated and confused about where to go. Relax and try to resolve one issue at a time without losing focus.

Seeing the gate closed in your dream is indicative of your fear of letting others into your life. You fear that they will cross the boundaries you build and take advantage of your vulnerability.
