i don’t really know what else to add, might have been an honest mistake, but tbh it sounds very suspicious 🤔…

i’ve seen a lot of such footage where conductors spend like 30 seconds trying to forcefully pack in a entire train carriage in order for the doors to close and i’ve always found it to be so weird

like, if your metro is so busy, i’m assuming you have trains running every 60-90 seconds, which translates roughly to the minimum safe distance between trains, therefore they literally just spent like half the time they’d have to wait for another train to come simply trying to shove in one passenger, delaying not only everyone on that train, but also everyone is subsequent trains

where is the logic?



no, refuse to elaborate

idk, i’ve never heard ppl say these things about brutalism 🤔

maybe a somewhat similar sentiment in protest of high-rise and boring social housing, which happened to have a somewhat brutalist style, but never brutalism itself

if anything, some of the most interesting brutalist works are located in western countries such as england and japan


phone keyboards are so small, that, in my experience, however good they are, it’s basically impossible to type quickly without mistakes, so i always have autocorrect turned on on my phone

however, i compensate for the diminishing knowledge of spelling by turning off autocorrect on my computer, works fine 🤷‍♀️


i don’t understand

is the implication that brutalism does take inspiration from random objects and people dislike it because of that?


well, i hope you’re right in the sense that this entire thing is actually a negotiating tactic, however, i can’t help but still remain pretty worried

i guess we’ll just see what happens, bc we will probably have a relatively certain answer soon 🤷‍♀️


russia is a country with the most number of nuclear weapons in the world, being extremely sensitive about any border disputes, fueled by an unfortunate self-perpetuating symbiosis of a large portion of the population being nationalistic being catered to by an equally nationalistic autocrat…

no sensible country would touch such an explosive combination country with a long pole, let alone try to invade, which would virtually guarantee mutual destruction with nuclear weapons…


massive accumulation of russian troops, weapons, hospitals and other supplies along the border with ukraine, 2014 annexation of crimea, withdrawal of russian diplomats from ukraine…

look, i’d be the first person to want this whole thing to be some kind of massive misinformation event/a scaring/negotiating tactic/whatever, bc i have ukranian friends who are likely to get drafted, some of my closest friends in russia could get drafted, i myself could get drafted

i’d be very happy if in a few months i can go back to this comment and laugh at it, seeing how dumb this whole thing was, but right now it’s a tangible fear for all of us

whatever your position is on this, you’ll never fail to be surprised what kind of fucked up shit a crazy ultranationalistic autocrat with zero oversight catering to a nationalistic population can end up doing…


guys about to be invaded by russia and they’re protesting nato/us imperialism? priorities??

til some people walk around with shoes ON in their houses, wtf? 🤔🤦‍♀️


first pic: damn they’re so close to discovering a tram lol

in all seriousness though, this looks great, the british isles is not a place often mentioned in the context of great human-centric infrastructure, but here we are 🤷‍♀️👍


eeeehh, i don’t know 🤔

soviet russia had some of the most advanced technical education curriculum in the world, with most jobs being also in the engineering field; this partially carried over into modern russia, which still has a very strong focus on technical subjects in its education system, so A LOT of russians were not only raised by engineers, but also educated, to an extent, as engineers

this factor, combined with underfunded, subpar quality infrastructure and goods and a poor population practically forces people to demonstrate engineering ingenuity and creativeness with severely constrained resources in order to get by or have fun, which, distorted by the subs you mentioned, creates a superficial perception of “jankiness”, which in reality, again, is nothing but engineering creativity within constrained resources

i don’t think it’s really offensive and i don’t know anyone who thought that overextrapolation of engineering creativity onto the entirety of the russian population was offensive, most just think it’s kind of amusing, maybe even proud really, bc you have to appreciate the ability to get by and have fun when life is so shitty, idk of that makes sense…

the perceived lack of regard for safety is also a combination of poor safety regulations (caused mainly by corruption) and, because life is so hard, people really just stop caring at a certain point, bc if everyone were wholly concerned with ensuring safety at all times, the little time people have to actually enjoy themselves would be wholly consumed by that worry for safety

i agree that this post is a poor example of russian engineering ingenuity, because, well, tying stuff down with a rope is hardly creative, and a pretty standard practice really, emerging thousands of years ago probably

plus, on this occasion, it’s a goddamn funeral, these people just don’t have the money to get a catafalque and the person driving a car prolly works as a taxi driver, therefore has an uber sign on the car…


this is the ostankino-medvedkovo tram line in moscow, completely separated from any car traffic, goes primarily through parks and forests, absolutely beautiful as you can see from the pics, and it’s also the most popular tram route in moscow

if you ever visit, definitely a recommended ride :)



these types of seemingly absurd combinations are not intended to be things you wear on a regular day, to school etc, they try to encapsulate and present design concept and ideas, sometimes rather vague ones

all of that, combined with the fact that you need to accentuate certain aspects you really care about, obv in the end it doesn’t come out as something super practical



does anyone know what kind of moderation 4chan has? tbh, if it didn’t attract all racists, nazis in the world, i think that kind of forum would be onto something interesting 🤔






we do have admins from both european and north american time zones, which is where the majority of english speaking trolls reside, but i’m afraid that in terms of response time it’s not easy to get it under an hour (unless you have ppl working full time on it, which the vast majority isn’t),

but to a certain point could definitely be mitigated through more moderatiors with more diverse timezones


thank you reddit for singlehandedly curing my reddit addiction with their awful redesigns lmao 🙏🙏
