Here is a collection of 34 pictures of former Russian president Vladimir Putin doing manly things.  Kottke explains in words: 
Watch as Vladimir Putin rides a horse, drives a race car, tags a tiger, does judo, goes on archeological dives, looks at leopards, stands on a boat, arm wrestles, attempts to bend a frying pan, rides a snowmobile, flies a plane, hugs a dog, rides a motorcycle, looks at a bear, swims the butterfly, signs autographs, shoots a whale with a crossbow, plays the piano, feeds a moose, talks with a biker gang, steers a boat, walks through brush with a gun, sits in a tank, blacksmiths, plays hockey, hugs a horse, dives almost a mile in a submersible, and adjusts sunglasses.
I like how several of his activities are done unnecessarily shirtless.  I don't know much about this guy's politics or whatever, but I have a feeling I would vote for him. #politics
