Clouds cast thousand-mile shadows into Space when viewed aboard the International Space Station. Photos by geophysicist and current astronaut Alexander Gerst.
realest thing I’ve seen in a while
this was so amazing. so thought provoking. an eye-opening social criticism.
This kinda fucked me up
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.
1. We like to think of romantic feelings as spontaneous and indescribable things that come from the heart. But it’s actually your brain running a complex series of calculations within a matter of seconds that’s responsible for determining attraction.
From the TED-Ed Lesson The science…
Mmmmm… Just saying :p
she did a lot of acid//neutral milk hotel
she had a mental problem
she couldn’t concentrate
she was her own delusion
she was her own mistake
she did a lot of acid
to put the voices down
and one day at her birthday
they found her hanging upside down
they say she lived her life on the avenue
they say she cried from the weight of her spit
they claim they were the only ones that she ever knew
ah, but why are they weeping now?
when she was alive they were not around
they were locked in their own abyss
