that picture appears to show people using contactless transit cards, so whether or not the text of the tweet is true, it's unrelated to the image

since that tweet is the only source for anyone reporting that, and the tweet itself doesn't link to an actual story, i wouldn't necessarily take it at face value

Contactless cards != Google pay though. In the Kyiv metro you could just use a normal credit/debit card as well.

makes me wonder what the percentage of google pay/apple pay/tap credit cards on most transit systems is relative to local transit cards is across different jurisdictions

Well, actually...

i'm starting to feel like putin is deliberately trying to goad NATO into doing something.

here is putin's legacy as a chart of RUB-USD exchange rate, from the day he took power in may 2000:



the russian economy was slowly growing until the day in 2008 that he invaded georgia, which is the first crash on the chart, and then the day in 2014 he invaded crimea is the second. in twenty-four years their economy hasn't been better than the day before he decided to whip out his dick. and this is just the financial metric --he's obviously also cracked down on gay people and journalists and everything else.

the guy has literally nothing positive about him, his legacy is permanently set as one of the worst heads of state in history, and he's 3 years away from the median russian life expectancy. maybe he just wants an excuse to push the button

yeah, I've been thinking for a while that he's trying to make his legacy spitting out the phrase "this was NATO's fault" with his last breath as a second strike lands a dozen MIRVs on the Kremlin

THE POSSESSION OF WEALTH IS IN AND OF ITSELF A SIGN OF POOR VIRTUE. AS SUCH:
1 NEVER TRUST ANY RICH PERSON.
2 NEVER HIRE ANY RICH PERSON.
BY RULE 1, IT IS APPROPRIATE TO PRESUME THAT ALL DEGREES AND CREDENTIALS HELD BY A WEALTHY PERSON ARE FRAUDULENT. THIS JUSTIFIES RULE 2--RULE 1 NEEDS NO JUSTIFIC
