I promise we'll get to kung-fu Ukrainians in winter wonderlands soon. Hang in there.

In the meantime, here are some discussion questions, class:

Who has the cooler hat, Yana, or the kid? (I don't normally tell color on this, but Yana's hat is dull blue, and the kid's hat is cream and red.)


...what IS Yana's legal status at the moment, anyway? Is she a soldier? A spy? A civilian mercenary?

A discussion! Excellent. Okay:
Yana's hat is cooler but the kid's is better on toddlers. And Yana's legal status at the moment is.... fair game. Sorry to say, but at this point it hardly matters since pretty much any side in this conflict, including civilian, could kill her for any number of reasons and because of the nature of this kind of war no one would care. But I guess in the meantime you could call her a spy since she isn't on a government paycheck.

Well, the kid's hat does remind me of the Smurfs, but only a little. And it's the wrong color. However, Yana's hat reminds me of my own hat, which means she has an excellent understanding of style. Therefore, the kid stands no chance in this 'Hats' War'.

As for Yana's legal status... I admit that my knowledge of the international laws is weak (which is why I'm considering becoming a warlord), but I think there's something that says that non-uniformed individuals are not considered soldiers? So, I guess 'spy' would be the closest to truth.

THe kid has the cooler hat. And we can't really answer the question about Yana in absolutes. It really depends on whose POV you answer it from ;)

So, hung jury on the hat -- I'd wear either one, myself -- and Yana shouldn't expect lawyers to come leaping to her aid if she gets shot for spying. :p
