I figured a lot of the things I wanna talk about are fairly mundane and cannot fit into any topic at all so I'll make this thread for the mundane things in life no one can pinpoint and make a thread with.
You can talk about anything in this thread that you don't feel making a thread over

So to start, as of recently barbershops have been using this lamp outside their stores to signal they're barbershops.
I quite like it, it's not something I thought was neat at first, but it's kinda neat seeing that places are going for the gamification route and having things that make them distinct from each other.
I am fairly confident this is brought from somewhere else, but I could be wrong. Do barbershops where you live have this lamp post? Did they always had it or they just started using them recently?

We have a designated blogspot thread >>41511, but this is fine too. I have to restart archiving the threads (just saving them to disk for now).

I think that's an USian thing, and I don't think I've ever seen it live. Maybe Budapest has some barbershops, and not just generic "coed" hairdressers, there could be elsewhere too. I don't even notice these institutions, my hair grows until I give it a buzzcut, on 'bout monthly basis. It's cheap and relatively quick.

Seems like it's more of a barbershop thing and less of a hairdresser salon thing.
I mixed the two together

I did not notice that.

>Do barbershops where you live have this lamp post?

I've seen that thing sometimes, but it is definitely rare. We also have distinction between so-called "barbershop" (барбершоп, used as is in transliterated form) and classic hairdresser salon (парикмахерская, from German "Perückenmacher"). There is also third one - "beauty salon" that is often a typical hairdresser too.

Hairdressers are classic ones and existed for centuries, beauty salons are new form from late 20 century, and barbershop is a new thing from last 10 years or such. Barbershop are solely for men, and they are viewed mostly as modern hipster-like thing, although exist even in poor provincial cities now and slowly becomes acceptable for masses. I didn't visit any of these places for long time though, because I've had relatively long hair and don't care.

I see, we also have certain differences, you got barbershop as "barberia", which would be the one you refer to, and then there's just the average hairdresser of town that we just call "peluqueria". I wouldn't really call them "salons", because most of the time they don't look like one and it's just someone's house, but if the size fits then I guess it should just be called salon

How is the education level in Russia? It seems to be a trend on imageboards for people to promote studying there but there must be something happening in the background I assume.
That being said, I don't think studying there can't be as bad taking into account institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here. After finishing my current studies I would like to get into studying something related to computer science there, possibly robotics, maths or nanotechnology if only to see what could happen.

>How is the education level in Russia?

I can't answer this question completely because I had no education except Russian one, so can't compare. It is very diverse, from relatively good to completely bad. There are "big" universities with long history like MGU, MFTI, MIFI etc, some "medium" ones (also with history but not so famous), plenty of small ones that mostly take your money. Big ones may be very different depending on department. I've studied in big one and can say that it was relatively difficult, but some people from other faculties had easy mode for all 5 years.

Russian high education has some specific that foreigners wouldn't understand. For example, most of men go to university not for education but to avoid conscription (especially in past, when it was 2 years). There is also some specifics from Soviet time, when USSR overproduced engineers and higher education became some kind of necessity for average person, even if he don't know anything after university. There are plenty of jokes about vacancies of janitors that have university education as requirement. These things lead to situation when average student go to university not for education but just for diploma, so university staff also don't care too much about education in this circumstances. Although it all depends on you. If you want to learn something, you will.

I don't really know how different is education of foreigners though. Our group had 3 foreigners from Uzbekistan, they were sent by some industrial company that payed for their education. They didn't study anything and in the end they decided to stay in Russia, tricking that company to "forgot" that they had contract (I guess they've just bribed someone). Only thing I remember about them is that they were ok with drinking beer with us because "Allah wouldn't see us here" (c). There were also completely foreign groups (from Vietnam or Cambodia, don't know) who didn't know Russian and were rarely seen.

>It seems to be a trend on imageboards

I don't think that it is good advice.

>institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here.

This happens here too. For example, we (metallurgical engineers) had course of Russian language (lol), course of Philosophy (where first words of professor literally were "you all dirt and shit, I don't want to see all of you"), oversized math course that is completely unrelated to our profession etc.

>computer science

Pretty weak in any Russian university. Math can be good though, but pretty complex.

>How is the education level in Russia?
I'd assume varying level as everywhere. How proficient will you be on a field depends on yourself what you are willing to learn besides they give you on universities. There is a false assumption that universities give you a working knowledge on a field you can do a job, accomplish a work. They could give you a foundation, or a set of information which makes you familiar with concepts, which then helps you learn your actual job when you found one.
You yourself have to seek out the sources of knowledge, and acquire that knowledge, and do practical things to be a master of the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd of mediocre students and makes others - professors, people working in that industry - interested in you, and help you with your carrier by providing opportunities.
You have to have an entrepreneurial/adventurous mindset to move your arse and actually do something, participate in things and put yourself close to opportunities which you can recognize and exploit. Otherwise doesn't matter what university you are student of.
Or have rich, influential parents with connections, who secure a career for you.
>trend on imageboards for people to promote studying there
I did not notice this.
Do you think it is a good idea to listen anonymous people on imageboards (beside this board ofc, we only give good advis, based on legit information)?

>institutions tend to insert useless subjects involving social sciences on universities here.
>This happens here too
Yeah, filler subjects are everywhere. Sometimes (frequently) they are politically motivated, sometimes just because they have to fill the curriculum, and they have to work with the professors available, who work on certain fields. Sometimes both.

>computer science there, possibly robotics, maths or nanotechnology
Try Imperial College in London for example (assuming you are a burger who wants to study abroad). I heard they are good in those fields.

About filler subjects, I used to think the same but now I wonder.
I studied computer science and I had philosophy and some social thing science and I kind of enjoyed it. Its like it was engaging different part of your brain, teachers weren't harsh on us, so we could relax a bit there while still gaining some knowledge. Not directly related to computer science ofc but might be still useful (since as an engineer you're probably still going to be dealing with other people), and even if this isn't the case it might be helping you grow as a person in other areas. People do philosophy all the time since everyone nowadays needs to have opinion on everything, so might as well get some education to do it slightly better. Even my proffessors of purely technical subjects would do that, like my algorithm teacher lecturing us that yeah we should ban people from driving once we get automated cars good enough since it kills less people and therefore it is moral thing to do.
I think the idea is, and I can get behind it, that people with higher education should be above the ordinary men and not just a specialised worker in a company. Therefore this education should include broader topics, to sort of make you more into this renessaince man. I think it'd be beneficial if both students and their teachers didn't think about those subjects as fillers.
