#2 What's in it for Russia if Armenia and Azerbaijan go to war? Do the Russians invade both countries and call it "peace keeping," or what?

#7 So - some guy from Azerbaijan gets pi**ed off, carries an axe to his English class - and NATO doesn't even notice???
I mean - did he have a "concealed-carry permit" fo the axe??? What about all his classmates ... did they just stand around taking bets while an axe murder was happening? It bogglers the mind.
Maybe this kinda' stuff happens regularly in NATO English classes ... I dunno. ;-)

#10 Kim's rear-end is a National Treasure. The being said it's impervious to axes so there's merit in the idea.
