Well, predictably yet another Black man in Minnesota has been pulled over for a minor infraction and wound up dead. And just as predictably, we’ve all taken to the internet to debate his culpability and that of the officer involved.

I used to consider myself a somewhat experienced subway rider. From Boston to Buenos Aires, Santiago, London, Rome, and that shuttle at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (you know the one), I thought I had just about seen it all.

I was wrong.

Just a simple, easy-to-read subway map that, believe it or not, doesn’t even show all the lines in the region.

Japan’s rail system is truly something to behold…
