As our world continues to plunge itself into the too-on-the-nose dystopia of our collective nightmare, Russia--who we are skating on thin, climate changed-ice with--has seemed to (once again!) one-up us all in the Hell on Earth department.

Russian businessman Yevgeny Pyatkovsky is financing a new reality TV competition called Game2: Winter, described as the "ultimate ninth month Siberian survival test."

"You must understand that the police will come and take you away," the rules state. "We are on the territory of Russia, and obey the laws of the Russian Federation.
