The First Day of School in Russia Means Going at Gun Point!

It is always an exciting day at school on the first day back. Here are first graders in Voronezh, Russia. Looks pretty normal, right? Look again. Whats with the guns? I always thought the lunchroom was a pretty scary place for first time students, but this ritual has the lunch line and lunch ladies beat! I can'r figure out the significance of this exercise , but apparently it is a "thing" in this community in Russia. The next time your first graders complain about school work and the first day, show them THIS video! It can always be worse!
