"I would like to die in the most badass way possible: fighting a shark with my fists and drowning at the same time."
Working with dead people and the ones around them who are hurt and upset is not very pleasant. The only beautiful part is the truth.
Few countries can boast a death count as high as Russia's in the 20th century. Twenty million were killed by Hitler and Stalin each, and millions more were lost in the Civil War, WW1, and the Famine.
