The original Soviet "Say no to vodka" poster:
"It’s -36C in Siberia, but they just call it bracing" (Times Online)

BTW, actually it was -37C with some wind this morning.

A Soviet poster of 50s: schools and education in USSR vs. USA
In USSR: in 1951-55s building of schools in towns and villages will be increased by about 70% comparing to the previous 5-year period.
In USA: 1% of budget is assigned to education and 74% for military expenses. In USA there are over 10 billion of illiterate people; about one third of all children do not study.
(The sign on the second picture reads: "The schools is closed".)
