To say his curse "worked" is silly. Thepeople of Russia were dying from neglect. They rose up exactly like the French did. I prophesy the citizens of the USA will rise up in violent revolution. If it doesn't happen I lose nothing. If it does, am I supernatural?

I don't care how endowed he might have been, if he smelled like a goat I think I would sooner have some whoopee with the goat. At least the goat would be better-looking than Rasputin.

Just the thought of having sex with somebody so thoroughly filthy-unclean leaves me shaking my head. Yes, definitely hygiene acceptance levels were a far cry back then from now. I would say that the majority of his partners were deeply "under the ether" and truly in a hypnotized state from his demonic aura prior to the sex.

well, his vision of russia being soaked in blood was true in the end. Maybe he knew how much of a moron he was; I'm fairly sure a lot could have been prevented had the royal family listened to him much less and more clever people a little more...

Ther lived a certain man in Russia long ago He was big and strong and his eyes a flaming glow Most people looked at him with terror and fear But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear He could preach the bible like a preacher Full of ecstasy and fire But he was also the kind of teacher women would desire ra ra rasputin lover of the russian queen Ther was a cat that really was gone Ra ra Rasputin russias greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on He ruled the russian land never mind the czar But the cassock he danced really wunderba In all affairs of state he was the man to please But he was real great when he has a girl to squeeze For the queen he was no wheeler dealer Though shed heard the things he’d done She believed he was a holy healer Who would heal her son Ra ra rasputin lover of the russian queen Ther was a cat that realy was gone Ra ra rasputin russias greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on But when his drinking and lusting and and his hunger For power he became known to more and more people the demands to do something about this outrageous man became louder and louder This mans just got to do declared his enemies But the ladies begged dont try to do it please No doubt this rasputin had lots of hidden charms though he was a brute they just fell into his arms then one night men of higher standing set a trap there not to blame Come visit us they kept demanding And he really came Ra ra rasputin lover of the russian queen They put some poison into his wine Ra ra Rasputin russias greatest love machine He drank it all and said he was fine Ra ra Rasputin lover of the russian queen They didnt quit they wanted his head Ra ra Rasputin russias greatest love machine And so they shot him till he was dead

I've worked with europeans - russians and czechs, they really smell bad because they do'nt usually take a bath. They wore the same dresses and jeans every other day, and their smell left inside meeting rooms that our company's housekeeping team have the everyday rounds of how to get rid of the smell because air filters is not enough. If you're europeans and living in a humid & very hot weather like southeast asia - please take a bath everyday and change your dirty clothes to fresh ones. Humidity and hot weather can catch germs that cause body odors. Be mindful of the health of the people around you please

On a personal note. While watching a program on television regarding Rasputin, my mother, out of the blue said . . ."My father said he was quiet mad". Very odd thing to say. My grandfather was in fact a Russian Colonel (born in Siberia) when he died in WW2 (although NOT a communist nor Bolshevik unlike his brother and remained in Poland after WW1). Being from a Russian military dynasty it was not uncommon to be placed at the Imperial Palace after completing his officers training. He wasn't part of Rasputin's execution (I'm sure he would have liked to be) as he was busy fighting the Imperial German Army, but he was in fact very familiar with him. The young lieutenant , as it happens also played tennis with some of the young tsarinas. My great, great, great grandfather is still honored during the Russian May Day Parade. Weird.

The problem with Alexi and his hemophilia was not a cut or scratch but a bump especially in a joint like knee or elbow that caused excruciating pain d/t swelling from blood seeping into the joint. The speculation is that Rasputin was able to relax and calm Alexi so he could heal as the blood was reabsorbed by the body

Other experts claim that Rasputin's death was organised by the British secret service. They wanted him out of the way to make sure Russia fought against Germany and Austria and took pressure away from France, UK and it's allies.

Rasputin was a member of a sect called the "Khlyst' (хлысть)", meaning "whip", not "killists". Much more importantly, it is now widely know that Yusupov exaggerated his involvement in the killing of Rasputin and almost certainly fired only the first shot of three that eventually killed the man. The second was fired by an accomplice of Yusupov almost immediately afterwards and both were fired within the room in which they were all drinking. One bullet entered his abdomen and badly damaged his liver (1st shot) and the other entered a kidney (2nd shot). The third and fatal shot was almost certainly delivered several minutes later by a British Secret Service agent called Oswald Rayner using a service revolver fired to Rasputin's head from the front when he was lying on his back near an entrance to the palace gate where he had probably been carried to be whisked away in a waiting car. The third bullet was a different calibre to that of the first two bullets and exactly matches the type of weapon carried by SIS agents of the time. Convincing documentary and other evidence has been found that supports this theory whilst Rayner is known to have been in the palace on the night of the murder. It may be that the body was dumped in the river after the killing but the liquid in the lungs may just have been wine that had 'gone down the wrong way' - I don't know. The British and French governments were terrified that the Russians were being talked into pulling out of WW1 by Rasputin, something which would have freed up around 350,000 extra German troops for the western front and this could have changed the course of the whole war, so the SIS cell in Moscow, (forerunner of MI6), planned what was probably a rogue operation to rid themselves of a threat to national security. The SIS codename for Rasputin was 'Dark Forces'. Oswald Rayner burned all of his papers shortly before his death to try to keep the operation secret.

They did laced cakes with the cyanide, which was why he was not poisoned as easily (cyanide theoretically binds sugar)- also is he had from boozing lowered acidity in stomach, the amount needed to do the dead would have to be slightly higher than normal. Also he was left alone, who knows how many he consumed instead of throwing it out of the window. I think that the poison survival is possible. The first round of shooting might just mean that the shooter was shooting without any vodka (not well). I am extremely hopeful that there really was water in lungs though as that would have been so amazing as proof that some humans are like cockroaches
