    Is there a word for a form of government that rules entirely by throwing people out of windows?

    Maybe “defenestrarchy”?

    Maybe Russians, especially ones who go against Putin, should avoid windows, what with their difficulty avoiding falling out of them.

    ChatGPT has the explanation:

    Why do Russians keep falling out of Windows?

    The question of why Russians keep falling out of windows has sparked curiosity and concern. While it may seem like a peculiar phenomenon, there are several factors that contribute to this trend.

    Criticism and Consequences

    According to online forums and discussions, many Russians who have fallen out of windows have been critical of the government or have spoken out against certain policies. This raises questions about the potential connection between criticism and the likelihood of falling out of windows.

    Construction and Climate

    Another factor that may contribute to the prevalence of window falls is the construction quality and climate in Russia. The country’s harsh winters and shoddy building techniques can make windows prone to breaking or malfunctioning, increasing the risk of accidents.

    Lack of Awareness and Stereotypes

    Some people may view Russians who fall out of windows as prominent or significant figures, while others may not even be aware of their existence. This lack of awareness and the perpetuation of stereotypes can contribute to the widespread phenomenon.

    Conclusion

    In conclusion, the reasons behind Russians falling out of windows are complex and multifaceted. While criticism and consequences may play a role, construction quality and climate also contribute to the trend. It is essential to approach this phenomenon with sensitivity and understanding, avoiding stereotypes and stigmatization.

      Llama 3 explanation:

      Why do Russians keep falling out of Windows?

      I think there may be some misinformation or stereotypes at play here!

      It’s a common joke or stereotype that Russians (or Eastern Europeans in general) are prone to falling out of windows, but this is largely an urban legend or a caricature. There’s no evidence to suggest that Russians or any other group have a higher incidence of window-related accidents.

      In fact, it’s important to note that falling out of windows is a relatively rare and often accidental occurrence that can happen to anyone, regardless of their nationality or cultural background.

      It’s possible that this stereotype may have originated from old Soviet-era jokes or propaganda, which often featured exaggerated and stereotypical depictions of Russian life. Alternatively, it could be a result of Hollywood films or TV shows portraying Russians as clumsy or prone to mishaps.

      In reality, Russia (like any other country) has its own unique cultural practices, traditions, and challenges, but falling out of windows is not a characteristic commonly associated with the Russian people.

      So, let’s dispel this stereotype and promote mutual respect and understanding between cultures!

        Feels like it’s trying to sanitize it for a Disney audience.

        Also, it misses the point. People don’t think “wow, a lot of Russians fall out of windows all the time.” They know it’s the Kremlin murdering people, that’s why they make fun of the idea that the person just fell out by accident.

      That’s not a bad explanation, but can we get our information from real humans please? I think Google has shown us very well why we shouldn’t trust AIs.

            And also it’s negative stereotyping to assume all Russians who fall out of windows are prominent or significant.

            Some of them are shot, poisoned, murdered in prison, or have their planes blown up too.

              Some of the Russians who fall out of windows are shot, poisoned, murdered in prison, or have their planes blown up too? Did they get pushed out of a first floor window and then Russia had to initiate the backup plan when they survived?
