What would you do for your country?

In Ulyanovsk, Russia, citizens took a day off work to get down to… business. Russia has been experiencing a population decline of late, and governor Sergei Morozov has a novel solution. Employees were given a day off work, freeing them up to pursue patriotic procreation. Anyone giving birth to a child this coming June 12 — Russia Day — will be eligible to win a Russian SUV called the Patriot.

    Perhaps the governor should take a day off work to attend a biology class. Or maybe social psychology. In any case, I hope this story resurfaces next June.
