Not all blonds are cute, attractive, and bimbos. I'm sure he has come across quite of few female math geeks (young and old) at math conferences. Like someone said, he was desperate for a White wife who was from a sh!thole country in Eastern Europe. Russia has always been looked down upon by other European countries. The Nazis made half of it their concubine when they invaded it during WWII. He should have known that women in Eastern Europe are not to be trusted. They've basically been used and abused for centuries.
The thing is those math geeks dont want geeks themselves. A woman geek who is a 4 or 5 can sleep with the same man a 8,9, or 10 woman can sleep with. Men are mostly concerned with getting their penis wet. The difference is she wont be able to hold them.
A guy like this has few choices in the modern market:
1) Get with the geek after she has been pumped and dumped by the chads.
2)Get a much younger woman
2 only works if you have resources out of this world. A professor may make a good living, but he isnt a ball player. Due to this he has to go somewhere where his funds stretch even further, hence the Russian mail order bride.
I have no affinity for Russia or Russians but the vast majority of your post is offensive. The Russian people played a HUGE
part in destroying Nazi Germany. For that they lost nearly 30 million people. To put that into context there are only 45 or so million African Americans today
. Back then that would be the equivalent of America losing every black person at that time. To stop the spread of something which looked to be the end of this very earth. They deserve nothing but respect for what they gave in that war.
The battle of Stalingrad alone saw them lose 1 million people, in what will go down as one of the more brave and important stances by a people ever seen in modern history.
