When I first saw this in the hopper, I read it as "How the Russians start a war with a dead battery." My mind didn't question it at all.
I don't see shit, but I really want to see this.
Can anyone tell me what is up with my submission?

In the hopper, it was a white screen to me, so I was surprised to see it made it to the frontpage. It's working fine to me now, but obviously some of you aren't so lucky...

The hell did I do?

I didn't either, but looked it up.

This is awesome. Must store in my memory bank in the 'Important shit to remember, just in case' file.

Can't they just push start their cars like we Americans did when we were young and poor and just starting out?
It's much safer to start a car this way after a few bottles of vodka.

I've done this on lawnmowers and stuff like that with small engines, and honestly I'm impressed. There's a certain part to the compression stroke of any engine, even small ones, that can cause you to get sucked back into whatever you're pulling on. To start your crap-ass Lada this way is pretty cool.
You sound like you understand engines better than me: this is only possible on a manual, right?

Yes, but to be really creepy and specific there were certain automatic transmissions made until the late 60's where you could actually push start (or do this) to the car. Otherwise has to be manual.

How did they start it though without popping the clutch? I didn't seen anyone in the car.

It was left on and in gear, probably in 3rd, there is a lot less resistance to push start in higher gears in cars with smaller displacement engines. Once it gets running the guy jumps in to take it out of gear

Clear the prop!
While I know they are drunk, does anyone have the full clip where this ends in a fight?
I guess they couldn't find a hill to push it down? That tends to be a much easier way to do this...

They do something similar as a Viagra substitute.
