Question: Why are you naming it in Dutch and then using a Russian image? Shouldnt you use a Dutch image or name it in Russian.

I am Dutch and the concept of a five-year plan is a Soviet Russian thing.

Hence the soviet rethorics (it goes with the name) and the Dutch name. Why would I give it a russian or English name? I'm going to look for a font that imitates Cyrillic to give it a more Russian note.

I just meant call it 5 yr plan but in russian instead of dutch that way there is unity within the label.

Its would be like calling it Killians Irish Red but putting an American flag on it, just doesnt make sense

Nobody I know knows russian... Wouldn't that make the label kind of useless?

Ok so why not have a Dutch image on it then? Then its all Dutch. Point is it doesn't make sense to use 1 language and then a picture thats blatanly from a different country.

Because we Dutch have always been capitalists... And we don't use five year plans... Which Russians did do since ~1930...

It's a theme...

Thats fine but it still doesnt make sense. Its like making an American Pale Ale and then putting a Mexican flag on the label or a Mexican Cerveza and putting an American flag on the label. The two dont go together and it doesnt make sense.

Whatever floats your boat man... If you don't want to read or you just don't get it, well... Whatever.

In truth it's not REALLY the last day of the Earth, but a phase. Some believe the Earth will tilt on it's axis (as it has in the past). Evidence being ferns in the Artic ice, etc.

If you are really into reading up on all the theories here's a link:
