Heard at Cal. In my Soviet history class today:

Professor Slezkine: "Does anyone know of any major industrial cities in Russia at the end of the 19th century?"
Some kid in the back: "Stalingrad"

Hey, it had a movie named after it.
Stalin was a teenager and the Bolsheviks weren't even in power yet to rename cities after their major leaders.
