Comments: Color Me Surprised

"Being eaten by a lion, dying of appendicitis, and slowly expiring from malnutrition after your teeth fall out are way no fun."

Except for the being eaten by a lion part, you could have easily died of appendicitis and/or expire of malnutrition while your teeth fell out in the Soviet Union too, especially if you'd gotten on the wrong side of some party flunky. And then again, didn't Moscow have a zoo back then? If so, you might have been able to get eaten by a lion too.
