There's Realism, and then there's...

"The outward limits on fandom tightly border total insanity. A squadron of Russian gamers, clad in gas masks, army fatigues and melted mutant rubber masks, bribed Russian officials to take them deep into the mutagenic wasteland of Chernbobyl's Zone of Alienation and cosplay a real-life version of the sci-fi PC game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl."

Wow. Those people are insane. :D

Did they really bribe anyone? And if so, couldn't they have just sneaked in secretly?

Or is this Zone in a different area than the pictures of the girl on the bike from a while ago?

Obviously I need to learn more about Chernobyl. :P
