But is it language-divergence crazy and film-splicing crazy? I think I would have seen that on Boingboing if it still happened.

Well, latter-day craziness is rarely as interesting as this:

"The Soviets, who maintain seven scientific stations here, have already applied one lesson: According to NASA psychologists, cosmonauts have been forbidden to play chess in space ever since a Russian in the Antarctic murdered a colleague with an ax after losing a chess game."

That is the single most Russian thing I have ever heard of.
