curious about the massive “Unknown” spikes 🤔

does this just mean that the place the where they collected data about OS usage couldn’t get access to the info about that person’s OS, or does that mean that they literally have no idea what OS that is? 🤔


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?


found the american lol


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 🤷‍♀️


the point about nationalism was more so to support the claim that russia is extremely protective of its borders, not really how it manifests into international politics of russia, but even so, you could completely disregard this particular point about nationalism, my overall point still stands


i swear, poor urban planning seems to be the most universal thing ever sometimes 🤦‍♀️…


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…


your comment is clearly formulated in a way so that my reply to it should give my reasons why i believe russia is likely to invade ukraine, which isn’t bad in any way of course (formulation, not invasion), but, i’m afraid there’s not much i can offer besides the existing satellite pictures, convoy footage, articles and other news coverage, intelligence of other countries etc, which you no doubt have already seen

don’t get me wrong, i, more than anyone would like this whole thing to turn out to be a too-far-taken negotiating tactic for russia’s demands to stop expansion of nato, bc i have ukranian friends who are likely to get drafted, some of my closest friends in russia were at risk of being drafted even before this whole thing started, i myself could get drafted in the event of a war

i would be really happy to be able to look back at this comment in a year and laugh at how ridiculous this whole thing was, but, one thing we’ve learned is that we’ll never fail to be surprised by the kind of fucked up shit a crazy, nationalistic autocrat with zero oversight catering to a nationalistic population can do…


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

if you’re truly passionate plant hater you should still be vegan, bc then you can murder plants personally with a passion 😎🌱




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 🤷‍♀️👍


not really that much machine learning, since it’s mostly just baritone, but still pretty cool i thought…

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…


english journalists trying to make an article that doesn’t revolve around the us challenge (impossible)

nice article otherwise though :)

telegram is indeed a peculiarity in the modern technological scene, as the article puts it, at first i was a little disappointed that telegram doesn’t follow the traditional oss path, with all the related challenges and benefits, but over time, i thought, telegram probably has a cocnrete plan, and it’s successful obviously

maybe telegram deliberately chose this on-the-edge position (not fully open source, but not completely proprietary; not fully transparent, but also clearly provides some insight; not completely ad-free, but also not excessively commercialized), and it’s a part of what makes it so successful: combining the best parts of both “sides”, so to speak idk 🤷‍♀️


for now it’s the best option unfortunately

more shitty cars -> less people driving cars -> win 😎


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 :)




really fascinating documentary about shenzhen :)…





The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality | Che Guevara

found this quote on a competitive typing website, and for some reason it really resonated with me, thought i’d share it :)…




after five days, it’s finally ready: split, ortholinear layout, robin choc switches and cool special low profile keycaps 😎 …
