Russian documents including and facial recognition experts have been used to confirm that Alexander Petrov is actually Dr Alexander Yevgenyevich Mishkin, a trained military doctor in the GRU intelligence services.
Bungling Dr Mishkin even used his own birth date and first names of his parents as part of his undercover identity as Alexander Petrov, and registered his home address as Khoroshevskoe Shosse 76B in Moscow – the headquarters of Putin’s elite military intelligence services.
Dr Mishkin was born in northern European Russia and graduated from the elite Military Medical Academies.

Fuck you Android Framework
Fuck you Android Framework for those horrible XML I have to write for each screen density. Fuck you for your useless layout editor that generates spaghetti code every time I change something. Fuck you for that Constraint Layout which is the most unused library till this date.
Fuck you for those horrible core components like activities and fragments. Fuck Android OS that can not even manage state changes by itself. Fuck you for those TransactionTooLargeException. I can’t even simply pass the data between UI. Oh, I forgot to fuck all those IllegalStateException from FragmentManager. Fuck you for making me so ill to write this fucking boilerplate code for content providers.

Here it is! Courtesy of Parade magazine from a few years ago. I don’t usually read parade but my room mate does, and she asked if I knew “who this guy was”. As a rabid Sookie books / True Blood fan I was floored. I looked online but never found a digital version so I scanned it in.
Kept it secret. Kept it safe.
In honor of Joe finally getting decent billing in a major motion picture, I give you Joe’s Day! Enjoy 😀
