There's no way to escape tourism is the last time on the level of cannibalism started.
I'm not saying that, I think that Alexey should have died, good, saying that there is a lot of stuff that wouldn't have happened yet
he had died or even of,
big bird had picked them up. It's all right, I'm usually we are under rescued in part for and two Henry's point. The only reason why ass bill was ever around was because this kid was sick, but you know he's there. Trying to save a life in that's important needs. Very employer. Russian empire is hanging by a thread,
Every single time you, like man, everyone hates Rasputin. We should get rid of them. They're gonna, fucking come up here, they're gonna, kill all of us and that they will look over
like seeding, goes
and they don T get Malaysia's about myself. Six more months have been Rasputin's right is ever going to king can, if your kid can play ping pong but other storm, our gas Allister,
one correction right up top. We are always honest with the ADI and always the very first
I said about world war. One was wrong.
Well yeah, I meant to say a bunch of kids assassinated Franz Ferdinand in Serbia and so that, instead I sit a bunch of kids assassinated Franz Ferdinand,
Serbia I utterly mark has sent me a text at two o clock in the morning being like I said this
stake, an act
sleep. I can't just like it's ok market history teaches us is extremely small eyes they, wherever you die. That's where your boots, not extremely small transfer, and I was actually Austro hungarian Archduke and the Austro hungarian or allies of the Germans will Serbia was an ally of Russia. Hence the conflict between the two Ferdinand was of Serbia. None of this. What are your entire mistake, contains four letters. So it is a small mistake by by January there, though, yet for letters couldn't get changed. A lot of shit
instead of someone's hey, you want to come.
Over and help the maids riders
we're come over it help I've got. You worry to work
come over. You don't need to help. I have maids and instead
Maids is also mortal entering the idea could come over help. You don't worry about it because I got a
Totally did not work. Arterward ale! Think that you stay in Afghanistan. But
and remember if you really want to know a good vague, vague lived, the best breakdown of war, one any one of us have ever heard, which was the blueprint for em again for debt from a hard core history. He really goes into because we had to simplify a bunch of shit last episode, because it's true, I mean
what we will say that again is there were one essentially was inevitable, was inevitable, and then it was written by a bunch of idiots and everybody fucked everything up
there. It is like ass, well, ass, you and, as we know, the world would have a much better place. Had Russia kept their nose out of it completely. As we said at the end of the last episode, the war had been going terribly in the first year. One thing: I'm not sure we really hit home hard was that Nicholas was actually very religious, but it seems, like his religion, only went in so far as to how it applied to him being tsar and
the place of the tsars in russian life? Are you telling me he was hypocritical? Always someone who is religious is also a bit of a hypocrite. I usually, oh so weird you mean it only worked towards this benefit, and only somebody like validate his position. That was handed to him randomly that he had no business having and he did very well.
I will not bore the brunt of you guys, but I gotta go to your all stiens Mega church, whom a thousand bucks God chose me to go, get eggs bennydeck that cause seventy five got up,
It was believed that God flowed through him personally to the russian people like a sort of Pope king and this belief would have disastrous consequences for Nicholas his family and the rest,
of the World Nicholas,
as he was praying one night. A mysterious voice told him that the only way to lead the russian people through the hell that World WAR one had become was to fire his head commander and Lee
the russian Army himself. Would you gotta do here is what you gotta do. Is you got it? What is the deal we have in this head? Command do deserve. Bear donor, Ronnie, Dangerfield, Jerry, Seinfeld, type thing
Ok, I as they that that is a so aggravated to me when people, like God, flows through me in among you, re cashier, Piggly, wiggly, God has not flowing through you. Those are thoughts that you have, quite frankly, your big it. It
Piss throws flows through you. One thing that does robe now
told story says that Rasputin Alexander supported the idea of Nicholas taking over the army from the very beginning, even suggesting that it was their idea, but in truth, letter suggests that nobody knew
even Rasputin's in Alexandra thought that this was a good idea. Ok, it's past
that the confusion comes from the fact that once Nicholas made the decision Rasputin in Alexandria supported it wholeheartedly, but not a sin.
Person in Russia thought Nicky had the jobs to pull it off. So Alexander kept calling him a pussy. Essentially thing I'd here is being weak.
The amorous speedily seem like we gotta be stronger. If you wanna be Tsar, you have to really like rule.
Russia, with an iron fist and using all yet I'll, do again I'll, be in charge of the army, hand, government Nevins, like
about all that and then decided to firmly do it. They, these echo chamber a care yea, it's great boss here. Would you gotta show support here? This is the biggest hours massive army for this gotta have to take control over
It's the biggest army is the biggest arming the entire world difficult, but it also seventy
and push it beggars, and
people fell like yams next to the crack they go down and Djibouti and, like you are now tank amended, is like a heavy aims. I am he aims, and so big the russian Army was huge and also because of that, because they were just go all these conscripted peasant people there were forced to join the army and the Nicholas
I mean he was just such a fucking. Moron, I'm gonna be just be said enough
they he's very stupid.
Farmers are strong thou, whom one rank your hand day. There's got him day when I was growing up, and I learned the hard way when the farmers punch for fun. They mean it. They don't know how to play. Five of farmers are produced. A punching quietly punching own actually know. I always thought that was me. Mad cow, I mean cow punching. That is Sunday. Just bunch got deleted. Farmers punch cards a lot. No one!
good point. Firemen makes an untold story is this idea about Nicholas,
leading the army, might have worked out at least a little bit better
Comb had Nicholas appointed someone with true government experience to make decisions in his place because, after all,
If Nicholas, was in charge of the largest army on earth in the largest conflict in the history of the world, he wasn't even gonna, be in Saint Petersburg, much less able to make day to day decisions, but instead
appointing someone who knew what they were doing Nicholas
appointed someone he could trust his wife AL.
Sandra Smart Little nepotism, their cases,
moorland he's, so stupid g hangs at all day with all of these that faced idiots
coterie, Jesus, like yeah,
CS? Brady's good should have bread and what did they began their people that are starving here? Would you get them ridge? Noise?
for me, keep a little olive oil in the wreck and, like the olive yard, no go! Your family stand the act out with the words you said she was stupid and then she just said something. Super smart also actually was emulated in all of garden dinner, which is again brilliant Nicholas, would have the final say in everything, but the government ministers would still report to Alexander and who should be allocated Andrews, closest adviser, put Rasputin's Manny did it again, it has just listen. This is amazing. Just allow
over a decade after arriving in Khazar as a filthy wandering. Nobody rest
beaten, found himself as our
Thirdly, one of the most powerful people in the world yet guilty of filthy wandering cool guy has now always got on because rebels at this time. This is
really where you always wanted to be. He is he
that would desire Rinaldi. He loves hanging out with the Czechs. He's got
little coterie of chicks around. I mean absolutely everything in total this just devastation and Iraq.
People are about to literally murder, as many aristocrats they can get for, can hold up, Rasputin's sit and pretty
Ben is digging out or whatever he can dip in it just spoke. It does lived. The life and given favours
people haven't people into his house and be like yes, yes, yes, I talked to Minister for you and you just loves to fling plan, let em all that he is the living definition of the deal with it mean that there is often only we emphasise one with it because, and then he did thing is true that it is a waste, is to talk with people that love rescued and guess who loves respite in five people.
Those five people every one of them are thwarted. The word
criminals junkies in all
Russia that are also filled with money because of Aristotle
there you go ridge, friends, oh yeah, but being one of the most powerful people in the world did not.
Press beaten from also being one of the drunkest people in the world. Yes,
Boris Yeltsin, Gorbachev, the Russians have a long history of drunk leader, Rasputin drink, so much that his security detail had to come up with an elaborate classification system for US intoxication level. I think we're gonna go with shit, fuck wasted. That's me! That's me that the seven problem I can drink so much of all of us, a bit like my clothes, are on backward set out, walking around normal obey and all of us up my jacket blood backwards. Unlike what the fuck am I crisscross about of these were the drunk club
vacation, ok, slightly
barely drunk drunk, very drunk, completely drunk dead, drunk and finally,
totally overcome with drink. I drink. You missed the one confident enough to drive wow. So all of us are drug all those redress and it's like the terror scale, used to be with the colors, but it's all just deeper shades of brown, eight class,
locations of drug. So what? While I will? I would love to see each of those acted out. Nothing separate which one is which I mean you feel like. It's just him Tipp forward to all the way
estimated that on
an average day, Rasputin drink at least twelve
bottles of wine well and hears,
where we have to dispel another myth, one that we ourselves help to perpetuate. Ok, despite what the quick
Google search says Rasputin was now.
The been sized six for man. We previously thought I'm sick, seven, I'm mad
these closely. He was closer to you. I told we originally thought he was like your size, but according to both untold story and Dan Carlin Rasputin
Actually, a lot closer to Henry at five nine real era: net contact
That is quite kind to Henry. I must just say that Damn Carlin is also violence because he's like four seven, I think the incursions very small, so they gazed bias and he's making everything smaller for himself on his scale. Rasputin's like right halfway between me and Henry, isn't that some thirty Potomac drinking all that more impressive, really does he drinks on poor? Almost with Andrey the giant, we learned that HBO Doc Andrea would go through four five bibles, just a dinner along with seventy five beers, but rescued and could probably have been with
I think he could so at what point do you accept the party
with recipe and good. I'm sure, like the first couple of bottles, gotta be a good time and then at some point you have to realise that you're in over your head, you gotta, go yeah. Yeah all depends on what level you're right you go to his parties in the first place, reasonableness rock and parties, which is true but the problems. At some point. He would go to Domini used the word gypsy because that's what they use it on all these books, it go to gypsy bars. Now was always the end of the night. Someone got him addicted to Gypsy bars and he'd go, and it would just be him spin. It has just been in and grab and grab a definite cause. It's difficult are all covered with jewels and stop, and so here
playing with the jewels there like Baker, S built in Vienna, and these us, like a good while vulgar markers. I've got to ask you to do that.
Were that in Anastasia up up up up up their goods that poor that desire that animated classic they actually didn't really get into the the general life of Rasputin's, with Rasputin's story kind of began at the end, with a did give him the penis spear right. They gave him a big green dildo that contained all of his power about they didn't get talk about like his drink embodies, but they dig him a cute little battening Bartok, that's great
is to buy. It makes all the lines on earlier. You get go also murdered in the revolution, and I on seventeen August.
Rasputin drank a ton, but
the man who did Rasputin's autopsy said that Rasputin's, even
his drinking an interim injure, probably would have lived to see his eighties, meaning it's just possible, and this gives you an idea of how Europe near,
the past is actually was it's just possible that rests. Beauty could survive long enough to watch Elvis on Ed Sullivan. Why anyone have any would have really see what I heard someone describe Elvis
to him, while he was in Siberia, there was an app and that's criminality made earthquake and poets never see need these blue solve shoes like two kites generally backing for the women screamed as if they were afraid by
Of course, there were no one was afraid, Elvis
go away. You do not HBO and others a great dark, eyed Elvis check it and, I was afraid Elvis Goo lay Gould
Do I who the heck is? Ghoul, lay the actor yeah
Why would you for it about robber he's, got an actor he's a singer. What use also- and I make a gun to have as yet? No they actually had a like a longstanding viewed in every time, Elvis would see rubber goo lay on the tv he pulled out his gun and shoot the tv we might cut my cover that inside stories that we can get into their there might be an hour we allow. No, we ve got an Elvis echoed in the few. Ok, all right, don't worry about that
thing. That's a little more complicated than we might realise is Rasputin's sex life, at least in later years. It's quite possible that Rasputin was at times impotent
yeah. He was real important to the russian government
Bravo, yourselves, fill you feel interrupted. Mark is war that I'm clinging to whatever makes me smile every daisy struggle just get up at about one about the boat.
Ladys of the night, including one named peach, who was interviewed in the seventy said
sputum, never huh
than for sex. She,
said: Rasputin would hire them just so he could stare at and while they were naked, groping them at the very most some say. Rasputin was doing this to test himself to see if he could resist the devil within
times those same people claim that Rasputin would walk down the street wave in his arms and slap in himself, all Tipp to drive the devil from his body. Cleveland, really understand land or stand I've done. The same thing is like a character out of faulty towers hanging out with everyone for Mario Car. What is happening? I don't even guide this man is based.
Golly, second, in command. His rod me Dangerfield. He is new money that has shown up from the falcon products who does it know what else to do he's? Just it always dreams come true.
I remember what happens to somebody when all your dreams come true. Sometimes you get fuck it
Does anyone know why
beaten, definitely did walk down the street slap in himself. A wave in his arms probably wasn't fight, not the devil. He was probably just very, very drunk think about how creepy this as though you get paid by respite.
You already know the Rasputin's, the fucking, the evil dark monk that controls he has the kitten into hypnotic powers over the tsar and arena
he hired. You here
keys. Him he's welcomes we're gonna go to Google. The name is locked himself in the face you go to a hotel room. Is the girl, your clothes? She takes off our clothes,
an easy sister scorn,
No respite, not today, not nano, not lucky ones, they what ones these not. Nevertheless, situation. That sounds like Joker after a concert that is a horrible, but then you have to put your clothes nickel metal, leave that
thanks for the money and is thus ignored. Thank you put the money. What you know. It's like a thing with therewith doesn't have a nice light. Did you say you do your brain region? These great economic might have an ice life
beauty had other trashy tendencies as well on one trip back com, but to petrol. Scalia Rasputin got into a drunken fist vie with his dad. That's fine things we ve talked about on the show with rest been that's the most normal thing has done so far is genuine unconfessed vie with his dad Arkansas Saturday, Alabama Monday. I guess that's totally normal and he did this after his dad called him quote an ignorant old fool who only knew how to fondle banya soft parts. His father was right because the whole time they had a very rough relationship him and his father and his father would get into several public fights like
on a wrestling on the public square. This is not just this happened like several times, and it was because,
Freedom saw right through Rasputin. The whole time is like you just
drunken due to say whatever the fuck. It is the need to be said to get on to the next level and Rasputin's like yeah
you mean they fucking winner, got really mad about that. He didn't you can never stand of respite. Norway Rasputin would bragged we the respite in, would come and give everybody gifts, and everyone would show like take. He took over
old town. They told the whole what there
we'll town became a fucking hot spot of of,
activity and leave the of of weirder aristocrats come in and out now learn assassins and secret police ITALY. John.
Cash in his father? Very harsh, very
very hard relationship, and they didn't
Along enjoys a data made at number one on the charts and then so Johnny would talk. He says you're still drunk loser to me. I'm not sure. I know what I know what the respite in that fight with his father, his dad got a black eye. Rasputin heard his hip, which gave him a permanent limp and the two never spoke again. But despite all this example is still thought that rescued in it hung the moon like grasping.
Do no wrong, she would say
Nicholas Rasputin's artifacts,
as almost wholly relics while he was commanding his army out in the field
They also came what these artifacts came, would like instructions on how to use them
she sidham Rasputin's greasy comb, telling Nicholas to pull it through his hair before making any big decisions. This guy's fighting a whole lashes war. Everything is a nightmare, he opens up a box and it's just a dump
old car, Mattel globally, and it's just like the last person to do that since was Rick. James really was worth much issued, even said Nicholas, who is by
one of the most powerful people in the world. She
send him cross from Rasputin's left over bread. She could.
These little cross rest
beauty rusks in great
Brandon. She could sell. Yes, anything yes and G told nickel is to eat these for the safety and victory of the russian people, and that's where croutons were invented aids. Very I, the this or not
An explanation to the people of Russia was really bad.
Because everybody knew in all leaked all of this stuff leaked, because her quota,
He would hear these little secret until everybody and Alexander would always get so mad that other better her secrets between
her husband would get revealed, but it's because every single person that was involved
equally with them that wasn't a total criminal was trying to get Rasputin the fuck out of here, including the secret police. There were reading all their male Rasputin's was wasted. I'm sure Rasputin's was telling everybody all this stuff himself to yeah yeah. He was now in use even go and further men like he was creating his own men like you, would never come right out and say, like I'm fuckin empress right, he would hit towards it constantly and give a shit
obviously, was getting really out of hand back and say Petersburg, and by the way, this point Saint Petersburg had changed its name to Petrograd, to some less german and more slavic cool.
It's always a good thing to do up? Yes, yes, but that's very that's very kind
cause you, member window funding. We didn't cover that always wanted to have forgotten when Rasputin first got to Saint Petersburg, the first thing ethnic.
Was to do said. He we could change its name to Rasputin
like a numerous like new Coke loathing year, my crystal clear, resolute. Could then I would call you cursorily Rasputin, but you're pretty doctor
right now you almost your visibly intoxicate you're, not getting the
Rasputin began when Rasputin's sturdy
it involved in domestic affairs, thereby
at a time of what one government official called quote.
Now we call that when senators fuck each other in the bathroom, the with several good errors ministerial leap, frog ministers were being dismissed, left and right in each time a minister was replaced and see
The only thing that mattered about the new guy was how he felt about.
Rasputin's for exam
The prime minister was replaced with a guy named Boris Tumor, who was
notorious for picking the least likely spot in a room where someone would catch him. Napping during important meetings is ethically just the russian equivalent of Garfield.
But he was in charge of everything in this guy was appointed by Nicholas at the urging of Alexandra who wrote in a litter pleading the case that Starmer quote very
its values Gregory, which is a great thing. Ok, oh my god. It's just
stupid in everybody's watched it unfold.
I want you to all these people get shuffled around and it's all just be
All the worst of the worst are gaining these positions of power, but I do think it's a mistake to believe that Rasputin's, orchestrated all this, it seems
Alexander and rest Putin's, were simply working in a feedback. Loop Alexander would give an opinion tourists beaten in respite in wood parity back to her or vice versa, and then they would congratulate themselves on how smart they were all right and then Alex Andor would go to Nicholas with the idea, while telling him how smart incapable he was, which would fuel Nicholas's ideas about him being a great and powerful tsar powered by God, and he would approve the appoint.
I like that. Yes- and this is how we got the Neil Young Electronic I'll, not as best we would. I at one point that I read. I thought there was interesting again Remo.
I think we're covering as much information as we can and stay a comedy show, but if you could read the book, Rasputin's faith power.
Twilight of the roman ops. It's fucking great! It's very, very interesting in this, so many fun characters in it. But one thing that the kind of spell
but Rasputin's ideas to accept. Didn't you
you seem necessarily that evil. He was like like Russia forward
He was against more one. He was simply trying to fix it.
Food problems. I was his big. These big thing was saying that the people of Russia were starving. We need figure out how to like good food or soldiers
looking at these ideas, will mainly be to someone like they were naive, but you sound like a do that problem.
Had no business speaking about military or domestic policy whatsoever that somehow got to be an important aid too?
a tsar that now too busy to run shit and his wife, who also just think its cue from
empire, because she's a fork and more inexperienced people in power
ray looters. They may also gives up thinking to kneel young playing the piano, unlike the move, member Tom bags in big Vieira would be. That was so fundamental, and you can imagine here you ll around based obvious to me, he's so frowny the whole time disappeared step on the big keys, really thought that this would
more bad ass. If trying to do it about the deep, the american people, there is nothing greater than angry old folks. I love them.
The longer this ministerial leapfrogging went on the lower
the quality of the appointments became
One guy, who was appointed to a high spot in the church, opened up and ancient monastery to these
wild parties where he would encourage guest to drunkenly terrorized. The monks were,
It sounds literally something Jeremy peered from peace, as that would add to its true. This is that this is a port of where I could see the infantile. What were we could
I'm going on. I can see this sort of like the idea of you would be fun to watch everything being chaos Jeff like an see, watch and politicians pull their hair out milk S Butte, and this is what happens when its reality, when a wind rescued and really is in charge of its just
from House hazy needs these guys. Spanking monks, shit and porn bought go over the going all the way at the altars and ship just poor vodka, all over millions got that total adopting who is the perfect world and no and we just worn a violent creatures. This response yeah
kind of this didn't have like very real right consequences that digging up still touch our lives to this danger. Superfine were then respite
got a friend of his named Alexander Proto pop off upon
throughout Europe above brought the pomp of brought the purple
Bob Bob Bob Bob as well as our Blaine. I would point out that road he got appointed to be minister of the Interior, which is pretty similar to being appointed head of the Department of Justice Arrest, beaten, had met Proto papa.
A clinic where he was recovering from that stab wounds from the woman with no knows they would do is what my fucking, God, Scott sought. Still man, I still fuck. I still get grazing argued flow me thou, but they do in Provo wasn't in therefore wound programme what they would happen to you, but that would go down with you man, I gotta maidens Jews on under the governor. He was recovering from a nervous breakdown because of advanced syphilis. You know, all you got fearful is due to go fucking thing. You should be prime fucking, Minister up
great xujans. Basically, the head of the d o J for the Russian. Do I wasn't even just that to make matters worse, while proto was in the clinic, the doktor got him hooked on what was then called arousing powders. What have that, in other words, Rasputin managed to get a simplistic coke had appointed as the highest ranking law enforcement officers, all of Russia
As you know, we had the energy had they get up and go, but he said that his arm syphilis, who so advanced he had become completely insane porthos above
would walk around yelling at himself, an answering himself in interviews, chemistry. We need already gotten a job of being and you ve got the job and then he's one around me and, like you are the king of butterflies, guess I am thank you very much god you're, a handsome man. Do you wanna make love to me every single day of our lives together, just him alone. That's one of the strange times where you have to be like well with any luck, he's just a Scientology, not absolute grace,
To give you an idea of how much turn over there was in the span of about eighteen months, Russia had forward
Prime Minister's five
stars of the interior, because the simplistic coca did not last long, you would cry spontaneously just start crying and having these like fucking fits Rasputin's, really good guide. Writer I met them. Would, by God we're all fuckin carved up. When I met the beach with no knows they didn't they
and Russia also had four ministers of agriculture, which was pretty goddamn important in a time when the entire country was starving to death. What can a country? Where do you think it is Henry
Really that's what I'd heard laughter,
December S, breast leninism air, and I saw the other thing. There was a man. There was an
Kyle is a lot of mechanisms for so many names, lots of dams and everyone from top to bottom blamed Rasputin's for all of this, rightfully so in a lotta. Well, actually I don't think so. You really wasn't involved in that much. There was a light handed the loyalty.
Was to him not in every case like it was a new is in some cases, but not in every single case was a loyalty oath tat to just to hand. It was a powerful guy. He was a very powerful guy, but it was only his fault. A lot of it was a lot of. It was because Nicholas with left in outline inexperienced person in charge. You know- and it seems like two I there was that thing up-
I was thinking about our reading is but the idea of an autocracy and the idea that
one guy who's, the decider, because when it comes
to Nicholas is like you could say there rescued and had all this power, but it was really up to him and its
about like be the it. What is it
the danger of having an autocracy and then a vacuum of power somewhere
between it. Somewhere in the decision making process were he became paralyze like mingles would talk about how like he would know what to do in that a part of it was like trying to get in front of whatever he felt would make the people happy. So he would
because he was he was balancing the Duma with all of
here's the end and running the army and the weird bureaucracy of the russian government ought once he's the kind of
allowing rescued in Alexandria to give him ideas because he was just for containing.
Good luck and more on what he would do is he didn't even have a secretary because he was paralyzed. He was paralyzed with the responsibilities that were put in front of him, but he what he would do is instead of actually faced
the big decisions before him he'd concentrate on little tiny, minuscule details like shit than in the scheme of things didn't really matter, but because you didn't want to make the big decisions he
based on these small things is part of what we are right and the whole thing from sight. He kind of went with the fainting goat,
you gotta too bad. I like you're, gonna, get. You didn't, go to the hours good and really
even the Rasputin wasn't like wholly responsible for all of it. I mean again that perception
all that matter, but to the russian people, like date, already thought from the beginning that Rasputin was a low key pro german guy because of his anti war stands because that type issued eight new keynotes. I one of those things which are all your against the war than you must be against you now, and then there is the matter of Alexander actually being of german ancestry. All this point
towards the belief that Rasputin's was wrought from the inside a trader that needed to be removed and remember. Russia was losing people by the millions in World WAR, one it's
weeks insane. The war was so brutal and therefore
throwing people at it fully
like this small per timely for millions of people at it and their own sitting back and still living these lives of luxury, while the other half of Russia is starving and Lithuanians did, it was a very tough spot. I mean I would make a concrete wall Jessica humans. Not everything can be a human shield, horrible what they did to them, though they treated them like legos YAP, and this wasn't like it was a world war to America, where, like everyone, pitched in on the war effort with pride, lay it wasn't like it was clear where people had to go without rubber for a little while
in Russia. They were working in the factories, non, stop for very little pay and they were going without food altogether. There
these rights, food riots and the cops would show up to shut down the riots, and then they
during the rights they realize. What do they do? They were doing this. She, where they were they were too
to clamp down, but the it was dead. The tide was common form. One can you do
So when the Hoy Polloi and even the higher up look to the Imperial Mps
see a well meaning woman. Trying to do her best alongside her magical peasant pal in charge of the princes well being
all they saw was a german empress and her drunken but ploughed making the decisions that were resulting in the deaths of their friends, family and country. I prefer a clown fop drunken clown. Fuck fuck cloud is an official title. It's not an official title of other people saw I like today's less

So at the end of nineteen fifteen, the aristocracy scene,
riding on the wall, decided
It was time for Rasputin's too
oh now, it's cyborg Mars close. It get out
it also took part of it, is also put the aristocracy whip with the autocracy. Is that like
Nicholas put it made him leave any time
boy, I think I'm gonna send for you. Do you got your going to appoint that's supposed to be the ease and the structure of a dictatorship is supposed to provide. This idea of that's like devaluation right is that it's like provide stability and that somebody can come in there.
Like somebody that will always make some final decision. It make sure things are always sat we'll. Do it a specific way and he didn't maybe got addicted
did to the bread crumbs years ago. Only Rasputin's can make the good breadcrumb with his disgusting teeth. Can you imagine the leftovers from Rasputin
derives its giscard column Pooh Dots.
What I mean it wasn't just that you know Nicholas could have made him go away at any time because he could, but it was also something that he just didn't want to deal with these wife, one automatic right. That's what you know. Some historian says that, like it was a lot of
Nicholas just wanting to make his wife happy happy wife, Abbe live. We lead because its erasure, you're running an entire lives.
Time that that Nicholas would like put his foot down say like no we're not gonna. Do that Alexander, I was going ok, I great
some like, she was a tyrant or anything better than he was afraid of her anything like here.
Just trying to keep her happy guy, like you, ok, I know em away from home because they were very much. Love is like a normal way from home, but maybe if your friend Rasputin's around that might make things with the kid with Alexey a little easier now, I'm thinking about the scene on Roseanne last night, Work John Word Johns
are dead, Goodman scared. I think it's John Notes, Dan Downward Dan told Rosea, be nicer to Becky the older sister. Is he wouldn't so scared after he told her to be nice by some of my mom when she gives me the weekly run down of big bang, love that I wanted Sheldon get up. Do this, we shall do you know he said you with something about. There was a spider man,
it's a mouth Spiderman, oh, how does even get into it.
But there's no separate, not true. I don't see how does love Sheldon? I will love how I wish we were all Sheldon, certainly not like. If there was a patrol revolution, this country, that he should be the first against the wall. The first
plan for Rasputin's assassination was descent Rasputin's on a pilgrimage with a friend a guy named another vacation. Another pilgrimage we're gonna Cinema way with a guy named Father, Marty, Meehan. Ok, I suppose
Thirdly, a dick.
Minister of the Interior, who would replace the coke had paid that priest?
to throw Rasputin's from terrain either. Mama edible movie outlined our lives, but it's possible that Rasputin either
about the plot or just got a feeling, because rest
and cancel the pilgrimage at the last minute. Ok, but Rasputin,
definitely knew. The end was coming o because people were being quite clear
but their intentions. This point right right whose Rasputin
started getting letters from someone who call themselves the avenger
story, has everything all men avenger, a drunken monk.
Of these letters read in part.
Her father land is in Paris. There is even talk.
Of concluding a dishonourable peace, the very fast
that you receive coded telegrams from stavka prove your great insulates. Thus we the chosen ones.
Ask that you arrange matters so that the people are granted minister responsible for them and that the state Duma
reconvened, so that our countries safe from ruin,
If you do not comply with our order, we shall kill you
mercy shall be shown to our hands.
But Frank, as did go, severs hat wherever you go, death was follow. You die has been cast.
Ok, I like to rule first sneak, might be twenty first snake I may get the gay e g. I make it the gay under the radar, dungeons and dragons, roughly very good, but he h,
Could they were same put up until now? I mean like. There was a point where,
final time, they all got together Nicholls, they had a launch and rest mutant.
Was not a spawn, as he had
apparently since basically, since he got stabbed he had long
kind of his magic do lost a lot of out of his yeah. You lost my. He lost that sparkle though,
have come to know and love like you know, like him, dancing around he's, not shop alone, and one time they had lunch and Rasputin's like he go
would give the blessings to everybody and then turn Nicholas he's just like this is not the time for me to bless you. This is the time for you
bless me, an heroic rear view owes you blessings any he laughed and they said that he went. He knew
Something was coming and also because they were literally publishing a thing in an
paper every week, sings someone's gonna kill, rescued and it's kind of interesting. They also do you think you could go against the russian government and not get Vulcan motored alright.
Remind me of Sean Michael's when he lost his smile, a sad he had to hire their further. While that was actually a big coup by the way was it after a big injury. Well, he actually fate in injury. Bread art, I believe, had to give up the champion should be changed. You totally ruined wrestle mania. There was undertaker had to go yet said Anne
and he set up a better wrestle mania later it was a lot of work behind the sea, the lot
What he wanted to push stone cold to the top is stuff.
Actually allow stop there because he was not injured.
This is a normal, or should I say that there are so many things that are understanding. It's a small needler yeah. It's definitely much more deserving of a nerd alert than my fuckin ran about. You know like the ramifications of arrests, beaten in the case of world history, but I got a couple weeks ago: don't talk about trying to square the circle? Defies man notes?
that the mood around Rasputin's apartment was intense during this period and that Rasputin row
his apartment, like an exhausted wool, is so cool the exhausted wolf image and then, in everything thing he said, is that he felt tat. He was of drift in the river of his powers,
His shit had just like like when we talk about with K S magic and that didn't he had been on the phone
He had been in the zone
so long like enchanting p
and getting making his will come alive that it just kind of
over everything and drag him towards death.
Your stressed out of your exhausted solely from pacing your apartment.
The tsar had given Rasputin's security detail after the incident, with the known

Wash em. Peep now
that really matter, whether Rasputin's actually had pre cognitive powers or if he was just a smart, do the new, which way the tide was turning the recipe
Prediction was almost exactly how this
of the entire Romanoff dynasty, ended all right called it. That's the last thing that your death bed you can be.
Called it yourselves nailed
There's a lot of debate as to who it was that was truly responsible for Rasputin's murder. One story says that one of Nicholas his cousins, nickname bimbo, was the one behind the plot making
previous statement. A complete prophecy, nay, agree
it's never one
of them at the parties, nickname bimbo, Bimbo now's the family, that common name, I guess it's some kind of zero ha main aim,
This is one of them is that tends to get perpetuated by the more sensationalist biographies as it certainly true that Alexandra blamed Bimbo for Rasputin's death, but real,
the man behind the assassination was only family by marriage. Rasputin's
sure killer was the husband of Nicholas's needs a flamboyant dry,
Dodger named Prince Felix. You support who is
bending his time during the war more on a social calendar than in the field. You support is a character.
That has got my attention the eager upon reading, getting into he's very fascinating. He was over
gay until he got married,
he was just straight up. Just just do one would ever slander and bombs everywhere. He could very handsome beautiful, beautiful man like piercing eyes, and he got married to his wife, who was like he steps are
sometimes, but he still fun and because he was using upon guy, but he got
into occultism like he goes,
was very, very obsessed with shit, and his big thing was that he came from Aristotle, Cramp, Erst, aristocratic fame
and he had tiny little hands risotto hands. But you wanted to see some fuckin action. He reminds me of the
Eddie Dude from funny Games are you describing,
bang theory again what is happening? What did
then, do up up up up. That's why he killed it right. He killed her spirit, attention that Z Felix. He wasn't what you would call a cold blooded killer. He said
motivations motivation were patriotic, that he was killing Rasputin's to save Russia, but in reality, I think,
looks have more in common with Rasputin them. What he wanted to admit really like Rasputin's Felix, wanted to be a great man and how
a man. Would he be if his actions in it up saving an empire? My feeling is that Felix
justify Beggin off military service, while millions were dying in the fields of Europe and do it in a way that
him a greater hero than any of them.
Milo, killing rescue you sort of like a russian John Wilkes Booth design
degree thought he was gonna, be a hero and emeralds like you're gonna have to die too.
The most open,
I think that's very true. I think that's a very get a good pull. It's very smart, but you'd also about him is he reminds me a lot of ain't, your command in the language we also talk about when we were recently it had Andy. It's kind of the same thing. Work comes out were the weighted.
Talk about his death and the way they were talking about killing. Him was so matter of fact, and it sound like such, like are all alike
What can be fun? We get to experience something like something outside of our normal, I'm like they. They thought it was like a thorn in cool to do and so be weird psychotic edge of heating realise what he was doing and he was doing it just for attention Andrew Brunette and we're gonna cover him, Roger, my god forbid. The verse aren't, you think, talks about him, but I don't think it can't be
overstated enough. What a mastermind this guy women talk, let he just killed everyone who was super wealthy and know. What's nuts, I guess crate
he's crazy. Thank you. Ve killed bottle people as nuts and Felix hated Rasputin,
Besides just disliking him as a person Felix come to believe Rasputin's was a german spy and even
more than that feeling
as Henry said was a believer in the occult and he actually believe that Rasputin with some sort of supernatural beast, he told the friend quote: I'm involve
The occult so I know the truth, I assure you that rescued and has a power you find only once in a hundred years. So this was the plan.
Looks and three other co conspirators. Where do we fight Rasputin's to make a palace where Felix lived, poisoners, sputum with cyanide and throw his body into the river, it would hopefully drift off to see. Ok, but since these guys were rank amateurs when it came to murder more suited for costume balls and tee than assassination massively fucked it up and just about every turn, it sounds like the people from what was that Movie Mc Caully culture was the storm at monster, already monster, actually he's. I write em ordinarily monitor, if not also its very similar interests are a part of the it's, the feeling of the time to where it's just so. People are openly talking about Rasputin smarter, when there are
for the murder you spot. Would you would
into various government officials, offices and says: hey, I'm,
murderer spirit, and you want to help, and they all we're like. Don't you
come in this room. Talking about murdering Rasputin and anyway, we ve been
planning for a month or kill rescue. They also the same. She was again we try to, but then right the he caught the other train earlier trade in and we didn't do anything like it's just something about its like the movie sliding doors. I think I've heard the reference expire versus by the mad cartoon, like what could Rasputin's have done. To avoid this, I mean he would just had to dip out. I mean really. I yet has resigned to. I wanted to tell you tat. He knew his own story arc now. He knew where what he knew. I honestly
but he was supposed to be murdered. That's the only way for it to fucking, for that, for the story tat good way for it, and yet they don't get him in Petrograd. They went and got him in Petrol Goya and he wasn't gonna be able to escape to Europe, because Europe was on fire wall or one was still raging in wood for another couple of years. So they said that he faced life with a courageous resignation. Ok, he also their hid. The two bodies,
putting together this fucking murder adventure with you support, told
every body was found little gossip to tell everybody did they were gonna murder, Rasputin rescued nerd, it several times like why? Because you support also like what I'm
do as so many go. I'm gonna be best friends with recipe, for we are letting feeling like Eli. That's me doing the finger in the fog Much Ivy League, we're gonna, be just as close as you can be, and then a man a spring the trap autumn and he's gonna be like Y gotta Odin
enrichment, like essentially in the other room hearing him say that name. So you support, went to go
he went to him to Rasputin, said Rasputin, I'm so glad you,
the last minute, and I know that we have problems before they had met? They had met
and rest beaten and him didn't get along Rasputin was like oh and you
both the glue, but when they sat down he's like Rasputin. My back hurts a memo link back thing, I'm having like

We were already Putin's just having a great time. The only partying in an empty room again
legume field centre with recipe. For an hour.
And men Rasputin looks over into the corner of the room and sees a fucking guitar. As I blame you sing, songs arrived so read so as fields is playing the guitar and singing Rasputin's songs or has been kept nodding off, which made Felix things like ok, the poisons finally work now with just one Felix like stop playing for a second recipe would jerked his head up thinking pipeline. Blaming none at all of these should not be that easy to kill. Someone know no right to come up with deep cuts. Bisbee alike he's on the be side of the house, will, I hope, you're dead, so mad.

Dived Felix excused himself to go talk to his conspirators. Ask em, look: what should we do? They they were just as baffled is Felix was so they said to health issues for can shoot, em, they're your lamb, replant every elaborately and ends with to shoot him even in this, because he said
We're gonna use like through you going to go upstairs and get your go now then factual, be pretty sweet of you pay, because it's starting to get really I'm so full you might as well just blow my brains, lore, so Felix took a small revolver went back to.
The basement made a bit more small talk and pull them
over out as Rasputin was drunkenly, admiring a crystal crucifix. Felix then pulled the trigger and shot Rasputin's Rasputin's fell with what field
called a wild scream and collapse on the
skin rug quote like a broken down.
You're dying so loud respite trying to cover it. That's what they thought to be politically plead music and they had a fake party going on upstairs. You would cover up the sounds of murdering Rasputin's rapierlike, so risks
the next year, and I think it's Rasputin's, whereby people we like to think big
on their hands and really set up and around to make. It seem like their dancing with somebody else by through here. In the screams, the conspirators came down to the basement and watched Rasputin's twitching convulse. Until finally, he stopped moving
then began face to the consumer.
Dressed a guy named Sir J up to look like Rasputin's and drove him back to Rasputin's house, hoping that no one would connect Rasputin's disappearance to that, because if they dropped opera, sputum or guide
look like I've been rescued, walked up to his door. Oh no! It definitely wasn't Felix who made this a brass beaten disappear. Last night, Sir gave you're gonna be raspy nominee to play the part. Ok slapping yourself. I need you start spinning. Looked at with this lonely spin like this, no foul. Ok, this make it work moment. We need to do this. Right are right or we're all going to jail, and I am not ready for the yard unbeknownst to them. There was a new directive on the force. Detective Colombo, I think you'll be able to solve this gave us. This is straight. This is like such a abc crime.
Many, alas, drama, didn't fuck ups, just keep common, so the guys they go by
to the palace to relax until their next move, but Felix couldn't help it go see the body again
I just want to see a more time than for me will use that use elucidate fields.
We was you just consumed with rage because he felt that Rasputin's had made him kill. Em, you maybe they're, really scary. Could honestly that's very scary. The guidance in Turco. That's also
funny on one side and on the other side, this is like a really
cut. It reminds me of like, when the little girl space stab there, the other girl to death. In the name of slender man knows user majority faulty did live nets. You gotta play a part of, it is to say the amateurish. The amateur,
nature of the murder, is kind of creepy cause, beating, really know what they were doing and was a bunch of people all just kind of confusedly. Hey goodly piglet
murdering somebody and his rage became very scary, and I have to ask you Henry: when your father came back after being really overweight, police officer did he does
I've a murderous, Higgledy PIG illegal or is that more of just you're gonna take on it not on not on my father, always would just chuckle and feel like some time

be a ghostbuster something I don't know what to do. Go dance, the dancing you theater games with you and your other gay kids. All right I'll see you when you fifteen,
he likes you consume with his rage. He went back to Rasputin's body that was still lying in the basement. Any storage shaken him, but his feet
stared in Rasputin's face one of respite.
His eyes, open and then other

Rasputin's stumbled to his feet, though many at the mouth during his anger wildly calling it the air above blood trickling from his love, glad the prince by the shoulder, ripping it from his univee Rasputin, was repeatedly growlings, tormentors neighbour guttural, voice to arouse beer of Felix responded to that with a series of terrified high pitched scrutiny. Isn't it upside down cake of a scenario we ran upstairs to his buddies? Rasputin went into the other direction and what brings Europe through the snow eating screaming that he was good, telling Alexandra everything, usually oil from young Frankenstein. Let's go

Thank you so much for putting into bed. But before you go, can you please put
an episode of Dave's world. It's the only thing that relaxes me Harry Anderson,
parry, our Ip America's judge, the other guys that were left rolled Rasputin's body and a curtain bundled him into a car and drove them out to bridge. There
ass beautiful body.
Thrown over the side. Ok, but their plan,
Rasputin's can sink your own. Then again
eventually get wash out to see yet
to rob the body in the chains dropout away just go about waiting there very, very stupid with regard to, but I like attach the weights. Do we know if their cartoon dog seems extremely stupid and when they threw one arrests, beans goloshes over the bridge behind him, the Galoshe just landed on the ice in the river below so
because the whole thing was that were rescued, will be thrown to the river he be washed out to sea. As far as anyone else knew like Rasputin's just disappeared, where's Rasputin's, I don't worry, we'll come back one day with them when they found where Rasputin's goloshes there, like oh
one killed Rasputin's yeah. I guess the river didn't read the script way that they wrote it and, as part of the river, I saw Pocahontas evoke honest sit at the river. Is you everybody that a relationship with that? Ok up
because guys episode, love it. So you Earl
then, a few days later. The suspicion,
were confirmed when Rasputin's frozen body surfaced in was dry.
From the river. With a hook,
One thing also remember, though, is that when it comes
to be the story of Rasputin's murder. This all came from a novel that you support put out later on their would could turn into a movie. You support did technically it is
technically, though, the only source of this story, and so
There is obviously much contention as there is with every single insure Rasputin
What was real and what is legend and theirs
because of his daughter. Maria was like this would never happen, because Rasputin would never eat cake and it's like well when it comes down to it like a mean, if you're drunk enough journey
Is there a need? Some of the details are operated like not the and the entire stories. Not corroborated, there are some details that only you support put in their by enough of it is corroborated for us to know. You like this is roughly what happened or a Yanks it I only, but because it so dumb and that's usually how all this stuff happens. That's you, edit enough Cohen, brother, idiocy and right for it to be real there. S, beautiful death is probably the biggest source of myth. When it comes to a supernatural, powers, some say: rests, beaten, even survived the gunshots and managed to free himself from the ropes that held him and succumbed only to the freezing cold of the river. Since a thing, only Russia itself can kill Rasputin, ok, but the autumn.
He told a different story. First of all,
no poison found in his stomach, but that
necessarily mean that that part of the story isn't true. It's possible that because of Rasputin's intestinal surgery that he couldn't acts
produce large amounts of stomach asked anymore and that's how cyanide work cyanide with the stomach acid and that's what actually kills you. So if you don't have a lot of stomach as an cyanides, not really gonna hurt you. So the irony is that, though the woman with no knows it may be saved,
apply for a little longer at least a little bit, and that explains why resting complained of light symptoms of cyanide poisoning but didn't succumb altogether like when he said he couldn't swallow and he was feeling a little light, headed but others say the sweetness of the cakes lessen the power of a poison. But
research assistant Rachel pointed out to me. Favorite is full of sugar, and that did not
up cyanide from working, Jonestown, ok
We also know he was definitely dead by the time he had water, mostly because Rasputin had a big
balkan bullet hole in his forehead. The thing tat the thing, even I can be a detective. China had died of a broken heart, but also Rasputin had no water in his lungs so deftly no. He was dead, nice
So in the end, it's possible that Rasputin was
unceremoniously shot by a russian dandy hopped up on delusions of grandeur who thought his act would say, the roman jobs and, by extension, the whole
an empire, you gave it a no! No! No! No! No! I mean you gotta whammy. That was aware. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. Ok, surprisingly,
after Rasputin's was killed. Some of the peasants resented the government for allowing him to die. Saying that's what happens when one of ours gets too much power. Was their representative think about this because all time because you kicked him out yet you really we
asking for you did
Put him on a train and sent him out there. It's a we didn't want him dead because we wanted to have a tv show Giovanni TV show why? Why would you kill him? They were really like? Oh so you just gonna kill em gallic wall. We thought you ask us to go on. No, no. We ask you to fire Everett this year. They gotta have a point, because I just for example, a cure in Amerika, like bootstrap anew
off into a position of power like that was expected. It's the hope
Weight of America that someone like Abraham Lincoln can go from a log cabin to president, but in Europe this
among the first times in modern history, that a poor person had actually made a difference up until this point, the whole of european history was depended on. The aristocracy is dependent on people that were born into this, but now you ve got poor. People are
You ve got peasants up there actually affecting chain cool,
while some of these people were sad and angry, others were at stake,
sounds like the motor on Petrograd was
find a similar to what ground zero is like. After Bin Laden was killed, like people were crying or hugging their singing the russian national anthem as loud as they could. They thought this was the turning point. We were singing the russian national anthem at ground, zero
Yes, they were so somewhere thrilled, Tomer, thrilled, some absolutely love and actually cut. Looked like Bin Laden and a weird way, we'll just don't die with, as does the air then got you clearly has a nice is ending with a dog one in wild wild countries. A reason why I want to get a big long beard cause people, trust you more value more. So I think that that's true
when you get close and they smell of oil will senorita limit, relies mail for nickel
his part, it was reported,
Tsar Nicholas got the news that Rasputin was dead alive,
of serenity and happiness washed over his face was so like Charles Garden from Beethoven, rational Dreyfus or more about Bob Fame. The look of relief- oh it's over it's over now, Alexander though she
prized everyone by facing it was
because everyone thought like Alexander, which could fall apart. You know she would never be the same, but she just
all the whole thing quote a sad fact, but nothing more
and then they have their enough in Russia. When you eat a popsicle on the popsicles, they didn't have fun
they have said, and nothing more and nothing, nothing but more, but it's a kind of feels like a break up
most of them were they like it's this whole thing they thought will we could never get rid of Rasputin and then the moment is dead. They're like oh wow, I guess we're guys got
look at me like you could have got rid of a fortune
two years ago, these more shared with she must have been there. But now what happens to this kid now? Well things, and he didn't have time to think about you think tat. Maybe if I make anything nice Betty, I could be upper instead of working. I can fly
you really fuck, it bother me out. Things fell apart. Very
really for the roman eyes. After that, we world war, one had only gotten worse. Three out of four were soldiers were casualties and farmers.
We're being taken off their land by force to fight making shortages even works. I do not want to be the fight, I'm scared of core I'm doing this job manner. The freaks me, I just horrible odds, ear area for three items here, the fourth one of like injured or in this leads well yeah. So,
International Women's day, thousands of women joint, striking factory workers in a march against the war and against the,
Hocker see that day soldiers
bade the orders of the imperialists and open
on their own people now good, but the next morning, after a night of thinking about
a year ago it was that the adjust fired on people who only wanted bread soldiers,
which sides and the February revolution began,
no. No, I don't like good bad. It's just what have you in our development? All family? You don't know
You don't know how this story ends. I beg you Brad level, the bread they dont get bread,
you get the bread, Lenin Bigots. Stalin, legged style is easily bigger generously. Stalin do that, then you need to get some bread, bigger linen. First, they get a little bit of light and then they got stone.
Do you know what happened? The Roman of life
although there are horrible, knew there, nor did they stopped there be
no we're not good. They were not used. Worry the people were stormy. There were dying, they did not deserve
the death, but they will not get into a death
the joint decision after ever, you might want to re. Read, rethink that after we tell you how the Romanoff died, including there
I feel like I do. I'm gonna put it this way. If you wanna bite,
your right to be addict,
which is a whole sadder version of that's. What do you want to say? I'm a dictator I deserved,
it was given to me will be given to me by God. I mean
I want to say I mean this is how dictators goes out is what you want, but let right it is this. What you wanted
you wanted to be the guy that the fate of Russia would fall upon. The very end final equal sign would be
put on you and be if you and you knew, if you didn't win this war, they were going
kill you and what you do? You fucked it on your Macedonia for container Joline, reformers you're, killing your people, but anyway, let's get into it so with the people in revolt, the generals finally abandon Nicholas after letting him bumble is way through to you
of commanding sir
in order to avoid a full on civil war in the middle of world war. One tab Nicholas,
lots of wars advocated the throne, so after the
education, the provisional government ordered Nicholas's arrest and the entire Romanoff family was imprisoned in Alexandria, palace or people would come to dock at them.
People Nicholas called capers.
We're not gonna get into that we're gonna man who now highly very talented women in the sand valet now about the gave her that's. Why? Then,
Toby Revolution, came the bull
the Red Army, overthrew the provisional government,
civil war broke out between the reds and the White Army
I'm gonna have meanwhile had been moved.
A house in the mountains
likely, never know who gave the order for what happened next, but we do know the rationale the White Army was approved.
The location where the roman army were being held in the Red Army was word, the roman jobs could be used as some sort of rallying point, plus Vladimir Lenin, leader of the Bolsheviks,
We held a grudge against Nicholas ever since the tsar had ordered soldiers to open fire on peaceful protesters. Back
first revolution in nineteen o five killing hundreds. Why
me moving in was likely just the excuse, looted I've been looking for ever since the Romanoff sipping captured and so the whole family Nicholas Alex
Sandra and their five children, Olga Alexey Maria Tatyana
and Anastasia were taken down?
to the basement of the house where there were being helped having been told there
the move to a different location there in the basement.
The commander in charge told Nicholas that the decision had been made to execute him.
The last word spoke
the last half hour of Russia before Bolsheviks ended their rain forever. Nothing
where special, then what what
ok, all right where there is no not time. No,
Nicholas and Alexandra were killed almost instantly as the Bolsheviks opened fire, but the children weren't so lucky
Jewels and diamonds that have been sown into their clothing by their parents for transport had worked is crude bulletproof vets and the children survive the first onslaught relatively unharmed, and so
The soldiers spends, the job up close and personal Tatyana
Maria and Anastasia, were stabbed to death with bayonets Olga the oldest was shot in the head.
Poor little Alexey, whose hemophilia had been the door that
Rasputin's into their lives, was killed by a gunshot to the head as well
That's all you got is all right. Yeah murdered there won't be. Everyone is warble in this story than I do feel bad for the children. Yes, I do remember the children, but I'm telling you you can't stop your own people at expect, not to have ramifications for your actions. They were horrible leaders, they let rescued and answer the door
my zombies is
I rise, or at least I loved the children of easily I loved you and I love it, you another, certainly when I learnt one about what they did with the children, but the people were struggling.
People were were absolutely struggling by sea end, but that's the thing is I I, I think
Nicholas and Alexander, are tragic figures of history, so bad, I think their tragic figures, because this job
was thrust upon them at the end of the day. It's a job in this job
thrust upon them, they didn't really want it.
And they were bad at it,
the good looking awful at it and because they were so bad at it. People
you know no else was charlatans to current events,
Why Assad Assad's older brother was supposed to be enshrined in Syria, but he died and then decide which does not tolerate Eurystheus like now. I have to lead it doesn't
good night, absolutely elitism payment. Absolute ignorance turns
some point at some point, just being like I'm bad at your job like what it wanted.
All those things you d be punishments are also high stakes that if you can't figure out how to run your shit, this is supposed to be some. This was a blue. You have to be very capable d run something complex like it's an honor.
Proceed. That's matched with a yes. It is in government.
It also has a whole branch of the church has also involved in your fighting a revolution within your own country and what wars against multiple people that are out gunning you like debt, would take it
Yes, I do not know just just do keep together young men to be emotionally sympathetic, I have
dreams and we run a pod cast herself. Yes agreed with me. If you are well beauty and just this shop, they get on medication, so I can handle it. So I, yes, I understand very difficult positions that they were debate very difficult. They it'll it's a lot more complicated than just they deserved it. Oh, of course, of course, the people who did it we're horrible Lenin installing them in their also just that, and then you get into the whole line at their disposal and orders. Nato know what
there's a whole level of blame.
Is very difficult in the context of international. You know why I guess of automation, but I know for a fact I would not follow orders, because my work to talk about a double this, our group, double the cheese, doubled his. Why you're always loved me and I was fired for not following orders, because I wanted to feed the people if Stevens Point was gone and you just sit there, but I use guys eight years. I difference between legal and right, topical abandoned will follow me
This whole family was killed. They were true,
their bodies were transported to abandon mine, sprinkled with sulphuric acid,
dumped inside as the soldiers sat around eating boiled eggs. So Russia, where the boiled egg things their nest,
within stick under get on it. It's what we sit over. There collects particles and felt like dirt, and everything gets Otto. Many like I did not the Greco bringing pepper, but by what I do.
But when soldiers realise someone might find the bodies, they
brought him back out and took them to a second deeper mine, actually surprised.
Add the art getting rid of bodies in radio during every now and then suddenly they could really handle I'm skipping over so much here as far as them transponder. This watching this is a what actually happens, the full story. What happens just to the bodies of the Roman OZ is horrifying,
It is it's more than what I want to go into. Do they covered in an anticipation also allowed and glazed over that as well get so there taken the bodies over to a second mine, but the trot carrying the bodies got stuck in the mud, so the men decided didn't really matter where the fuck, the Romans were buried and they were all drunk and tired because they ve been up all night. So the last tsars of Russia were buried in the middle of the road in a place called
Higgs Meadow, so they look
where does this all day? Also do everything is right? This is just about drugs, about about drugs with power. Yeah, yes, so decide
what the legend say: who's concur,
simply proved in two thousand and seven that all of them
manoeuvres, including Anastasia, died, horror.
Three deaths in a basement in Russia, one hundred
years ago, this summer, night of July, sixteenth, nineteen eighteen July, sixteenth, were who woke
and as far as what happened to others in the story, respite
his daughter. Maria fled Russia in died, in LOS Angeles and nineteen. Seventy seven, though she lived in a later in the Sixtys and Seventys yeah, he was crazy figure in history would like tension,
I did a horse train, she did buncher like you too.
Of circus performance and like- and she was on the scene for a while.
Far as what happened to Alia Door goes member alien, our residents greatest spiritual nemesis. He ended up
as a janitor in the met life building here in New York City talk to every janitor. You see, I'm not ever know if there are secret wizard.
He really heat in the janitor here in the city, he spent his weakens preaching at a russian Baptist Church
and then he had died and Bellevue. Nineteen. Fifty two histories also Asbury at someone using other Haljan like what what's that janitor muttering about for the rescue
continuity, urging that can you imagine like the old guy at work like on it during break time, bitch
Rasputin's I had a personal beef Rasputin born yeah,
Meanwhile, some kid just PETE himself and always gotta go go a bit.
And then there is the matter of Rasputin's cock. There is
Isn't there a matter about that? That's our demand this whole some say that after Rasputin's death, his junior
we're sawed off
spirited away by his followers in worshiped, is a relic for decades, after ok, eventually the cock
mysteriously ended up in a sex museum in Saint Petersburg, where it is still to this day on display in a big way,
the jar, formaldehyde big, want it's a real bell top to it's got a real, thick bottom and Abril thin top
It's interesting. Looking,
Fortunately, we ve got one last month to dispel, while Rasputin's certainly had a pretty big hog can take that away from can't. Take that away the member
on display in Russia, is in all likelihood a well
skies horse cock. I just
chicken meat that artists lop suggested turn it into a fake human, Dick and Collar Rasputin's got I'm sure that he was a good man, a good father
my own. Where there's a horse, Miss Nicaragua, that's most likely. Rasputin's cock was unceremoniously cremated, along with the rest of him on site,
The road leading out of Saint Petersburg and his bones
were thrown in the river to wash down.
