    Well also if they’re not actually from America it’s a bit weird to call them African American :/

    It’s taken in the Moscow metro for sure. Like any metropolis as huge as Moscow, most people living there aren’t actually native to the region.

    And living and being born in the same country?

    In English the word Russian usually refers to citizenship, only sometimes to ethnicity. So yes, actually, he is Russian. Российский, not русский.

    [–] Poll: Whose side should your country take in a conflict between the United States and Russia? leafolia 5 points ago in europe

    Agreed. I understand re: Finland since it's not a NATO member state, but it's a shame that the Baltics weren't polled to compare with Scandinavia, Poland, and other European countries sharing a land or maritime border with Russia.

    I was under the impression that in pop culture references, WW3 usually implies direct nuclear attacks on US soil?

    [–] Poll: Whose side should your country take in a conflict between the United States and Russia? leafolia 8 points ago in europe

    The only reason why Russians would ever go to war with the USA is to take control over areas in Europe.

    Exactly why you see the variances that you do; it depends on how immediate of a threat Russia seems to a country. If you're in Austria, surrounded by all these other NATO member states, you're not going to feel like a conflict with Russia would be a big deal. For Poland, however, this little sliver of land between mainland Russia and Kaliningrad causes a lot of worry, which explains why Poles might be more interested in being on the US's side than others. This proximity factor would explain Sweden and maybe Denmark too, since they also share a large maritime border with Russia.

    Admittedly I would have liked to see more specifics too (if they had used the word 'war' instead of 'conflict' I think we might have seen different results), but nevertheless, most people know that a 'conflict' is not the same as a twitter feud.

    Tbh I didn’t even want to touch the Xinjiang aspect of this map with a 10-foot pole

    Country name: Turkestan

    I admire your ability to trigger all of Central Asia at once here

    You forgot the one where even after you clearly enunciate Kazakhstan, the person keeps calling it the wrong word, Kyrgyzstan/Tatarstan/Rajasthan/Kadjakistan/Kqwaksjdojrhdhstan

    Edit: remembered another one... after Game of Thrones first came out people would ask me if Kazakhs were like the Dothraki :|

    [–] The final test to pass kindergarten in Siberia leafolia 19 points ago in ANormalDayInRussia

    Swimming in winter is considered healthy & supposedly strengthens your immune system, at least according to the Russians I know. There is a holiday in the Russian Orthodox calendar in January celebrating Christ's baptism, when believers and non-believers (including Putin) submerge themselves into icy water.

    [–] The House of Commons leafolia 4 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago) in AccidentalRenaissance

    I tend to agree that he’s an alright dude & White funny to listen to, but I’ve known a lot of leftists who dislike him just for being a posh Tory as well, not just the far right

    Edit: *quite

    [–] The House of Commons leafolia 90 points ago in AccidentalRenaissance

    Some Remainers and some Brexiters see him as having kind of used/abused his powers as Speaker to help his preferred version of Brexit (even though he himself was pro-Remain before the referendum).

    Then of course there's the simple fact that he's a Tory with an irritatingly posh accent, so many Brits (especially the reddit demographic, which leans centre-left) will find him annoying for those reasons.

    Someone recently commented on Twitter that his job is basically to take Molly McKew's conspiracy theories & give them a veneer of seriousness.

    I love how this theory assumes that Russia itself wouldn't have any issues because of global warming. It's not like they have any ecosystems in the Arctic and sub-Arctic that rely on cold weather or anything, and the heavy pollution in Norilsk and other industrial areas, causing black snow, yellow smoke and bright green lakes, definitely won't cause any health problems among Russians!
