this morning I see it mentioned several times ni letters to newspapers. The fact it's so blatantly obvious to so many people is rather scary.

In response to the discussion about stereotypical Russian drinks, of which vodka is probably most often cited, I found a pretty cool etymology of the word.

The word for water in Russian is вода ('vada'), and so vodka (водка) is actually an diminutive term meaning something like 'little water'. (I learned this from Babbel.com's Russian course).
