    • I contributed far more than I should have to the madness, but in my defense we did just finally finish remodeling our kitchen. After all the stress of DIY'ing far too much of the work put our young marriage to the test, we're still riding the pink cloud of our kitchen's new look and making our own food together again after several months of takeout. So that top-of-the-line KitchenAid mixer I've always wanted will see plenty of use and is worth the splurge. The new 65" Samsung TV for the basement family/rec room, OTOH...

            like, it's fine as a mass transit system, but beautiful it ain't.

                  To be fair, he did say “most beautiful.” We’re talking about a low bar, here….

                    Precisely.

                    Any subway is going to reflect the Great Unwashed. The measure of beauty is the art, not the cargo.

                        I have heard great things about Budapest in general. Architecture, art, transport, people. Too bad the guy in charge is Paprika Dump.

                          Orban's government set up a memorial to Hungarians killed by the Nazis, but the opposition put up and keeps up (since it gets torn down regularly) a counter-memorial pointing out how the (also fascist) government of that time was complicit with the Nazis in all of that stuff.
