Venting Thread (Don't break the rules tho, keep it civil and shit this isn't a place to be all like "hey this guy on the forums really pisses me off" it should be about other shit)


#1684

No, it isn’t. It is because the english-speaking countries decided to adopt the period as a decimal marker while literally the entire rest of europe used a comma.


#1685

And we weren’t colonized by Britain.


#1686

It’s pretty clear that, given the other uses for a period and a comma, the english way is better (for once)

$1,000,000.00

$1.000.000,00

The “.” as a delimiter is awkward and contrary to how it is used in non-numeric contexts. The top way looks much cleaner, and allows the comma to continue seperating things within a whole and the period to bring an air of finality to whatever precedes it.


#1687

It is cleaner.
It just isn’t gross or wrong.


#1688

Hyperbole pal


#1689

#1690

I’ll start to do it in the medieval way and no-one will stop me.

#1691

It’s just very annoying that they are different to be honest.


#1692

At everything else we do

Farenheit sucks

Imperial units suck

MM/DD/YYYY sucks

It’s all garbage except for 1,000.00

#1694

Meanwhile, Britain comes to a standstill due to 4 inches of snow

Like c’mon

I know we’re massive complaining layabouts but this takes the cake


#1695

That’s actually sad NGL


#1696

and they said we could survive on our own

ha ha ha


#1697

Britain is a myth it’s not real continent


#1698

I think you’re thinking of Australia, which is an elaborate hoax


#1699

It’s Austria lol


#1700

No, Australia is America but upside down
It’s Canada which doesn’t exist


#1701

Coming super early for job interview or just on a normal time is nervewrecking. You’re either just stewing there for what feels like eternity or you stress so much about making it on time. (45 minutes early, because I thought snow might be a bitch)


#1702

Just pretend the interviewer is in his underwear


#1703

meanwhile in Britain:

shitshitshit there’s like 1 mm of snow abort abort quickly everybody CLOOOOOOOOOSEEEEE DOOOOOOWN
