what and mir???
I can't believe my ears. Alex just gratuitously tossed in the Russian name of War and Peace. Except he said Ivana i mir. I replayed it twice, thinking he'd maybe said Vana i mir, which would have been a bad mispronunciation of Vojna i mir (that's /vɐjˈna/, the vowel-dipthong is sort of uh-eee, sounds a lot like vie-NAH).
Worst thing is, he had no need to say it!
