Putin, Vladimir Putin
You’re used to seeing sexy and beautiful babes here, but it’s time to expand our horizon. This posts is a milestone for both Pick Me Up News and you, our readers:
1. We’ve created this Big Picture category where we’ll feature only ultra high quality photos (artistic, meaningful, big size, etc.)
2. Like mentioned before, we’re expanding our horizon. We’re always looking for improvement in our lives, so why not take a look at some of the most powerful, strong, sexy and desired men out there. You’ll have a lot to learn, and when you have examples, that’s easier.
We all know Vladimir Putin. At least we know who he is, yet after watching these photos, we had no idea. Here’s a short list of things you might not know:
-He successfully restored the territorial integrity of Russia
-During Putin’s presidency poverty decrease by more than 50%
-Putin was designated the Person of the Year by Time Magazine
-He’s running the biggest country in the world, and did so for the past 12 years.
How can you improve yourself by taking his example you might ask. You’re a man, start acting like one. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
