My name is AHR, and you will never learn what that stands for. I live my life in an abusive relationship with the works of Joss Whedon. I am a fan of writing, drawing, and weeping at my lack of owning a drawing tablet. I enjoy LARPing, and am currently a member of the LARP club at my college. I like to reblog and post things that I have opinions about, because that is what you do with opinions. Things I am a fan of: The Legend of Korra, Harry Potter, One Piece, Pokemon, Once Upon a Time, Arrested Development, Archer, Buffy, Angel, That Guy With the Glasses, and Hetalia. I also have a penchant for reading bad webcomics to the point where I become visibly angry. I don't know why this is. A part of me is powerless to stop it. I like Owls.

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.

Yeah.

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.

yes they are cool! I like the bit about how they feel about human/djinn interaction, especially!

asdfgggg that is the part I cared about the most well ok then thank you so much you’ve just made my week.

Also those Djinns are so coooooooooooooooooooooooooooool :D And out of weird coincidence remind me of a race in my own stories. o-o Which make me inadvertently realize I gave them a bunch of djinn-ish traits. :V

they-they-they’re…cool?

oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh

oh my goooooooooooooooooosh

—flails—

thank you SO MUCH I just…AAA.

I’ve never gotten feedback on them, let alone compliments.

oh my gosh thank you.

Someone suggested I should tell the person I am not mutuals with that they are pretty on anon.

THEY HAVE ANON TURNED OFF.

So I am going to sit in the corner of social awkwardness.

Inuit might not have 100 words for snow, but it DOES have a word for ‘holy shit would it kill you to not distribute misinformation about languages you don’t understand’.

It does have a bunch of demonstrative pronouns, tho \o/

From what I can find that seems to be the case. :p The ‘100 words for snow’ thing wouldn’t even be so bad (since it’s mostly technically inaccurate) if it wasn’t constantly used in some weird sort of Sapir-Whorf thing.

it’s annoying cause there are grounds for said Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, just…not that.

I find the gender ratios of characters that “amateurs” (as in not published folk, like myself) have are a fascinating thing to look at. Heck I find characters in general interesting to look at, because they are a mixture of what the writer REALLY wants to get across, and their own biases.

But the gender ratios are a personal interest of mine.

Nude Portraits series by photographer Trevor Christensen

I went to school with Trevor and a lot of my friends know him. I’ve always loved his work, but I love the new level of spunk he’s added to his personal projects.
