evil rotten rasputin was the topic of today’s drawergeeks.


apparently, as legend has it, ol’ raspi was nearly impossible to kill. after several assassination attempts on the guy (including being stabbed and strangled) his body was eventually found frozen in an icy river. he was found poisoned, shot four times and severely beaten. after all of this, the autopsy report showed that his cause of death was hypothermia.

of course, that’s just legend. but it does sound like raspi wasn’t a very popular russian (i mean- he was evil). maybe he just died of a broken heart?
