FRENCH AND BRITISH ELECTIONS SHOW THE FLAWS OF SINGLE-CHOICE VOTING AND RUNOFFS
  • I just downvoted your comment.

    FAQ

    What does this mean?

    The amount of karma (points) on your comment and account has decreased by one.

    Why did you do this?

    There are several reasons I may deem a comment to be unworthy of positive or neutral karma. These include, but are not limited to: • ⁠Rudeness towards other members, • ⁠Spreading incorrect information, • ⁠Sarcasm not correctly flagged with a /s.

    Am I banned?

    No - not yet. But you should refrain from making comments like this in the future. Otherwise I will be forced to issue an additional downvote, which may put your commenting and posting privileges in jeopardy.

    I don't believe my comment deserved a downvote. Can you un-downvote it?

    Sure, mistakes happen. But only in exceedingly rare circumstances will I undo a downvote. If you would like to issue an appeal, shoot me a private message explaining what I got wrong. I tend to respond to PMs within several minutes. Do note, however, that over 99.9% of downvote appeals are rejected, and yours is likely no exception.

    How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

    Accept the downvote and move on. But learn from this mistake: your behavior will not be tolerated on here. I will continue to issue downvotes until you improve your conduct. Remember: lemmy is privilege, not a right.

  • A cool Guide to Film Popularity over the Years
  • Think of thrillers more like rollercoaster rides - they’re fun because they’re exciting and sometimes scary

    Horror is more like haunted houses, they’re fun because they’re scary, which is sometimes exciting

    This is the interesting thing about genres - they’re often abstract and can blur definitions easily. The same way we don’t consider a hot dog or a pop tart a sandwich, even though you can often find the definition of a sandwich in each.

  • The problem with these charts is that it all varies so much from person to person. I would put the entirety of the waist to the back of the knees as red. Nothing sucked to me as much as the back of the thighs and butt.

  • Costs of living in Montreal
  • Depends entirely what area you’re in. Public transit passes tend to be $100-$150 per month, depending what zones you’re going. More on that here.

    Gym memberships can typically be $40-$70 per month, which will, again, depend on your area.

    Groceries and rent are really what vary the most, and are the hardest to answer, especially when you’re just looking for a room. You won’t be able to find a 3 1/2 for less than $750-800 (and that’s far from the city,) but finding a room for $500-600 a month (nothing included) is a bit easier, if you put in the research and time.

    For groceries, if you decide to hit up places like IGA, you can easily spend $150 to fill up just a grocery bag or two. If you can get to a Sami’s Fruits, however, you can walk away with a full shopping cart of produce for that much.

    I haven’t lived in or near the city in years, as I’m in the west suburbs right now, but from what I can pull and what I can adjust for inflation, you may have something that looks like that.

    Your best bet is to make as many new friends as possible with punks, hippies, and the rest of the misfits - they’ve always got the best spots with the cheapest things.

  • This timeline is wild...
  • Also, you can definitely criticize something whilst participating in it, even if you have a choice to abstain. Like I don’t have to eat spicy burritos, but when I do, I’m going to still complain that they haven’t made antacid suppositories. You can ask for a better life.
