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

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? 🤔🤦‍♀️


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 if 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 what i from now on will call 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…


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 🤔

I think the difference with a game is you don’t seek violent games out for the sake of fulfilling murderous urges. In

when was the last time you played an online videogame? 😅

running around in a busy gta 5 lobby or playing a counter strike match on eastern european servers often makes me think that the most vile, hateful, murderous, abusive psychopaths all came together to play with me, if i didn’t know that these are actually normal people irl

i think many people actively seek to play games to realise their violent tendencies, griefing everything that moves and does’t move in minecraft, just driving around on a gta 5 map and blowing everyone up for no reason

and just like these users posting their abusive conversations with chatbots, in videogames people do post clips of, say, creating a massive car pile up on a highway and then exploding all of them, and it’s not considered bad in any way

Enabling reinforces the behavior in people, it’s like giving someone fake casino games. If they have what it takes to become addicted, they will soon turn to real casinos with real money because the fake thing is just not the same. By all accounts enabling is the exact opposite of what you should do to treat a disorder, which is to curb it.

once again, couldn’t this same logic be applied to videogames? i still fail to see the difference between this and videogames: of course an ai chat bot is very different from a relationship with a real person, with the latter establishing boundaries and saying no to things, but so are the aspects of owning a gun and driving a car different compared to a videogame, where you can behave however irresponsibly you want, which in no way translates into how you’d want to handle a gun and a car in real life


wouldn’t this logic be applicable to videogames also? when i’m playing a game, if at any random point i’d be interrupted and asked whether the people in the game are real, i’d of course say no, but whenever i’m playing the game, i don’t ever think about that: if it’s a good game, i feel sad for the losses of the characters, feel on edge in tense situations, and happy for their gains, even knowing that these characters aren’t real

but even if it’s enabling, why is this a bad thing? for example, bdsm-esque fantasies are fairly common, and as long as people play them out in a consenting, safe manner, there’s nothing harmlful about it, and people aren’t being dragged into mental asylums for it

i’m not exactly sure what the nature of verbal abuse the article is discussing, but i think it’s a fair comparison


i’m not sure, i’m not a psychologist 🤷

there may be some underlying issues causing this that you’d want to seek help for, or there may be not and this is just another of the myriad of weird fantasies people tend to have and you can’t “correct” much about it idk 🤷‍♀️



exactly my thoughts

if anything, a person releasing their harmful-to-a-real-person tendencies on an algorithm is a sign that this person realises the harmful consequences of these tendencies and therefore doesn’t abuse a real person

not much different from videogames, but because of the novelty of this particular case it’s perceived as bad 🤷‍♀️
