@allquicatic did you happen to change yours since... July? :P
 
12:30 AM
yup
 
Bob
12:41 AM
Hm... I've been serial-upvoted o.O
 
It's rainy and cold out there...
Probably less than 20C
> Since 2001, 7,916 people were killed in Chicago. The loss of American lives was higher than in the Iraq war (4504) and Afghanistan (2385) together.
Oh... Sounds impressive?
> Rio de Janeiro had over 39,000 violent deaths between 2001 and 2015. In the same period, the city of São Paulo recorded more than 34,000 cases of murder, according to their security departments.
Gold medal in crime and violence, yay =/

@ThatBrazilianGuy :(
 
Bob
@ThatBrazilianGuy That... does not sound like something one should be proud of o.O
 
Sep 6 at 0:34, by That Brazilian Headless Horse
In a true Brazilian tradition, I jest of my own misery while I'm sad and scared.
 
Bob
@ThatBrazilianGuy Have you considered becoming That American Guy? :P
 
Although in that case is more desensitized than scared.
And I don't get the impression the entire city is a warzone. It's mostly restricted to the ghettos and slums. Which is really sad, but at least I am safe.
 
Being able to crack fun at things means it hasn't broken you yet.
 
1:04 AM
@Bob I don't know, I'm not sure if I could deal with the cultural differences
 
@ThatBrazilianGuy two words
Cheaper hardware :p
 
@JourneymanGeek But that's the thing -- I don't fell proud admitting it, but... It nearly doesn't affect me.
I'm white and I look wealthy. Well, non-poor at least.
 
Bob
@ThatBrazilianGuy I suppose it is hard to adjust to only occasional murders :P
 
@Bob I don't think I've ever witnessed a murder, shooting, dead body in the street or the like.
 
I've seen at least one dead body.... Not murder tho.
 
1:07 AM
I only fear, for real, two things: bandits / robbers and police. And they're not always two different things.
 
Someone intentionally fell off my building.
 
Bob
@ThatBrazilianGuy At least they're discreet...
@JourneymanGeek O_O
 
If I was black and lived in a poor town, I'd be terrified of the police. TERRIFIED.
 
@Bob it's semi common. And messy.
 
But I am not, so I am "just" scared of walking alone at night.
@JourneymanGeek Someone intentionally fell off my workplace. Early this year, IIRC.
 
Bob
1:10 AM
@JourneymanGeek I've only heard of one accidental (?) fall nearby. In the local shopping centre. The middle. Right in front of the biggest supermarket.
 
20+ floors I think. Punched a hole through a metal sunshade.
 
Bob
ow.
 
Here it was 10 floors, but as I work at...
they managed to hide everything quickly
I didn't see the body -- nor I tried to, it's so morbid when people to that, when there's an ugly accident and traffic jams happen just because of people slowing down to see the gory bits, it's so sick, are we vultures?
So, I was saying, internal security blocked everything, they were waiting for the police and wouldn't let me in into work.
 
1:33 AM
@ThatBrazilianGuy uhh i was just slowing down so we dont Add to the body count, (yeat that's it) but I did want to know what happened , , , so I remember and it doesnt happen to ME :-) I think they should show all the gory details, so there is a better comprehention of why not to drive like an idiot.
did that super safe collapsable car, collapse around the driver? Was they wearing a Shoulder belt (seat belt) that cut through thier juggler? Did the air bags go off or was that one of the recalled units? Does a head really go through a safety glass windshield then get stuck there because of the safety glass?
did the engine end up IN thier lap, or did it drop out below the passenger compartment? did that super safe collapsable steering wheel save them or drive through them like a javellin?
and the #1 question, knowing nobody ever installs a child safety seat properly (according to the stats less than 20%) would they have been better off without it.
here in the very heavy california traffic, they just scrape them off the road, as quickly as possible so the mass of traffic can get on with things.

> Some typical features include the "clamshell" model with large displays (240x320 pixels) and in many models, a display on either side. Additionally the phones have many extra features, e.g. a megapixel digital camera. The displays normally have 65,536 colors but the newest models have as many as 262,144 colors.
