According to Russian search engine Yandex, Muscovites traveling on the metropolitan subway during the morning peak hours search for the texts of prayers and dream books most often, reports RIA-Novosti.

The most popular topics searched for changes throughout the day. After the morning searches for prayers and dream books, the first half of the day is dominated by searches for directions and various addresses, especially to courts, museums, and shopping centers. “On the way home from work, users are already beginning to think about preparing dinner, or they search for where to order dinner. Theater-goers are returning home from 10 to 11 PM, and from 11 to midnight—football fans.” Just before the metro closes, users most often search for nighttime bus schedules, the Yandex message reads.

Moreover, throughout the entire day, Muscovites are interested in religioun more than the state, job searches, games, children, movies, and animals. In general, metro riders are 10% more interested in religion than the rest of the capital.

Passengers rarely search for information on the weather, and for pornography and sex services.

Well I guess it's pretty much a given as to why Russkies wouldn't bother searching for the weather. As for the other two subjects. Well phew/

Deacon Nicholas,

Yandex is a secular company, and doesn't have any discernible interest in fudging the numbers in religion's favor. The Yandex report itself ( says: "Популярность некоторых тем в течение дня меняется. В утренний час пик люди чаще всего ищут сонники и молитвы" -- "The popularity of several topics changes throughout the day. In the morning peak hour, people most often search for dream books and prayers."

I really want to believe this, but this is so self-serving.
