Video Good Deeds Caught on Russian Dash Cams

  1. Russian dash cam videos are an interesting phenomenon. There have been so many accident scams and frauds in Russia that it has become an insurance policy -- if you have a car, you must have a dash cam. As one who looks at a lot of Russian sites on the internet, I've seen a lot of crazy stuff on these dash cams -- the meteor strike in Chelyabinsk, that one airplane crash, as well as tons of crazy accidents and shenanigans. But somebody put together this sweet video of simple good deeds caught on dash cams -- drivers stopping to help old ladies across the street, stopping to help animals and children who have wandered into the street, even simply unfolding somebody's side mirror or brushing the snow off their taillights. I think it's a wonderful antidote to all of the awfulness that fills up the internet. The best way to make the world a better place is to fill it with better stuff.

    ETA: Oddly enough, this video started a big political argument on my Slavic Studies mailing list. People can't just take a nice thing for what it is. :rolleyes:
