|display_description||A cult of blond-haired, blue-eyed murderers are going around Moscow kidnapping people, tying them up, and then beating them on the chest with hammers made out of ice (kept in portable refrigerators) from a Siberian meteorite. The purpose of this injurious behavior is to awaken the celestial beings who are residing within them; however, only a tiny percentage of the victims survive this painful "rebirth." The survivors are given new names, a healthy bank account, and are sent out to "awaken" more of their kind.|
