When using a public transportation card with a monthly fee, it is common for it to lock up for several minutes after use to prevent it from being used by more than one person.
Some services, like the Moscow bus network and the subway, set this to a reasonable 10 minutes.
But if you happen to enter a Russian Railways station, realize you forgot some stuff at home, go back and try entering a station again, you will be hit by an unpleasant surprise that _their_ lockout period is *40 minutes*.
Oh, great, my mom spent the last 30 minutes watching a TV program about how everything great was actually invented by the Russians, but kept in secret or whatever...
After this kind of programming on national TV, no wonder people can believe whatever self-contradictory propaganda the state news channels are pumping into them.
Speaking of the NES, I actually made this fork of a small NES emulator named "nesalizer" that adds a small kinda mednafen-ish debugger to the whole thing.
Well, it's nice that the idea of universal healthcare is gaining traction in American politics.
I just hope that, if implemented, its effect on American economy (with the entire health insurance industry collapsing) won't cause its GDP to drop below China's.
Because if _that_ happens, then that will be a huge hit to the idea that, out of all currently used systems of government, liberal democracy provides the best results.
