I like smart, attractive, and confident things.
One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.
These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.
They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.
These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.
And the metro is always this clean.
In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.
Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.
We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
And here in capitalist Boston you’re lucky if you can get a train every 20 minutes. And those trains carry you to like ten percent of the city and take about an hour to get to a place on the other side of town.
and New York’s subways are monuments to filth and extortion of the public thru high fares with low ROI.
but you can go anywhere you want.
Neo-Nazis get their shit pushed in by native american grandmothers, who then capture their flag, take selfies with it, and then burn it.
Neo Nazi status: Wrekt.
You will never be as cool as these grandmothers.
literally the most punk rock thing on my dash ever. Nazi Punks fuck off
literally these grannies will beat out every single white dudebro in a game of CAPTURE THE FLAG
