  1. More people ride TTC per day than CTA, by about 200,000. It’s close, but they’re certainly comparable by ridership, and pretty similar in catchment area as well.

  2. But you're comparing entire systems, not just the rail network. Toronto's bus network is much more reliable, and they have the streetcars too. But Toronto's heavy rail system is much smaller by comparison.

  3. I really don't think there's that much of a cultural difference. A marginally different political situation, sure. But there's nothing on a cultural level preventing us from having a world class public transportation system like Toronto's. There are dozens of cities all around the world with vastly different ideas about "the role of government and respect we owe each other" that have incredible public transportation systems.

  4. Does anyone smarter than me have any idea why mass shootings are almost always men? (And I'd suspect tend to be white as well?)

  5. I took your advice and went to women's wellness but all they said to me was "sir this place isn't for you, please leave." 😞

  6. How does one find out when these things happen? Do I need to be tuned into network tv? I just found out after brushing my teeth and swallowing some tap water. Should I go to the ER? Just kidding kinda. I have Afghani refugees in my complex, lots of them. Who’s gonna tell them?

  7. I don't mean to be a dick, but if there are people from Afghanistan living in your complex they are Afghan, not Afghani. Afghani is the currency, Afghan is the people.

  8. I’m with you. The term “unlivable” is such a 1st world problems term IMO. If Anchorage is “unlivable,” what does that make somewhere like Kabul!?

  9. I don't think "better than Kabul" should be our standard as the richest nation on Earth.

  10. That’s not my standard lmao. But saying any American city is “unlivable” begs the question, is anywhere livable? It just sounds extremely privileged to say that simply because public transportation is not up to par, a city is “unlivable.” First world problems my man.

  11. Liveability is a term that urban planners, sociologists, and economists use. It doesn't mean whether it's literally possible to live in a place.

  12. If you have any factual disputes and can point to evidence contradicting any of the claims here I'd be happy to read them.

  13. I guess, but in this particular case it's pretty straightforward reporting on a report from the governor's office. If they're a propaganda outlet (and I'm inclined to agree they could be considered that) this particular piece is counterproductive to that aim.

  14. Courtesy of the Federal Government’s COVID money

  15. The biggest increase came from sales tax revenue, actually.

  16. TrueAnon just had a great miniseries series about this framed mostly through the growth of Synanon. (Which Robert has also covered here)

  17. "All that shit - sorry, all that stuff."

  18. Most of the Russians I run into are in the various software piracy subreddits. (Makes sense I guess.)

  19. Interesting read. Just 1 problem, from their own website: The Cato Institute is libertarian in its political philosophy, and advocates a limited role for government in domestic and foreign affairs as well as a strong protection of civil liberties.

  20. Lmao have you never heard of Cato before? They're huge Republican backers.

  21. Partially true. There have been an increases in crime for some cities bucking the trend of decreasing violent crime. I highly doubt she lives in said city though.

  22. Even then, "destroyed" is such a dramatic statement.

  23. Idk if this is weird to ask, but do you think Oz being Muslim had anything to do with him losing?

  24. I doubt most people who voted for him were even aware he's Muslim

  25. That is what I say about Florida! It may look like Florida is turning purple early during the election night but Floridian elections are never over until you are disappointed.

  26. Honestly I think we should give up calling Florida a swing state. It's deep red at this point.

  27. True, but I'm thinking more like the 1960s where politicians were being assassinated and activists were being murdered/imprisoned.

  28. It's kind of odd to me that we're not there already. Trust in political institutions, national cohesion, etc is at an all time low. We're experiencing deteriorating economic conditions and still reeling with the aftermath of the pandemic.

  29. This was an attack on Nancy Pelosi. Paul Pelosi happened to be the one who was assaulted in the process.

  30. The intention was to attack Nancy, but the actual, physical attack was on Paul.

  31. I live in RN and I think sitting in the street is tacky.

  32. lmao this is such a River North opinion.

  33. Same! Visited two times in 2021 and earlier this year and my family decided to relocate here from Texas. It's only been a few months. Preparing to build thicker skin this winter hehe.

  34. Welcome! I moved here from Texas a few years ago and haven't looked back 🙂

  35. Same. People keep asking me when are you going to visit Texas? When I have to ...

  36. My neighbor! I'm glad you like it here too. I'm sure you've been warned about winter. My unsolicited advice would be that it's easier to deal with if you make an effort to get out and do activities. There's an awesome Christmas market downtown and Maggie Daley Park becomes an ice skating rink 🙂

  37. The Loop has the Theatre District, the River Walk, and Michigan Avenue along Millennium Park which are all lively until around 10 or 11. Then there’s the a South Loop, West Loop, and River North, Gold Coast, and Old Town, which are lively until around midnight or so …

  38. We must have different definitions of "lively." Michigan Avenue, sure. But the South Loop is pretty quiet even during the day. The Gold Coast is home to middle aged and older people who don't tend to party out late. River North, West Loop, and Old Town habe some more activity, but I'd consider those to be some of the trendy neighborhoods I mentioned earlier.

  39. SF is definitely not a 24 hour city. Especially post-COVID.

  40. eh, I wouldn't consider Chicago a 24 hour city. The Loop is pretty dead after 6pm on weekdays and it's only the trendy neighborhoods that are lively at night.

  41. You sound really chuffed though I don't really understand what it means. You can borrow double the amount than you could before?

  42. Credit scores are really important in the US, it determines whether (and how much you'd pay) for a new car, could determine whether you can rent an apartment, get a loan for a house, and sometimes even jobs require a certain credit score. It kind of sucks shit imo, but that's the sytem.

  43. I skipped this one. Whatever happens there happens. I have no connection to it.

  44. You do, to a huge degree. Even if you consider climate repurcussions alone, it will have huge effects on how much of the Amazon rainforest continues to be preserved.

  45. I'm on openmediavault. My system is an i5 10400 with 8gb ram, I'm using it as a NAS and Plex server without any issues. It's quiet enough (the main noise comes from the drives, nothing to do with the case itself really) and the build quality is honestly pretty nice.

  46. Why’d you choose OMV if you don’t mind me asking? Not sure what os I want to run yet.

  47. It's got good documentation, it's free, and runs well on low end hardware. For my purposes it's great. I think if I wanted to do anything more complex though I'd go with something else, maybe unRAID.

  48. You can say that all you want...and everybody here is going to agree with you. The problem is, the people who are able to vote for the downstate politicians don't give a shit and will quickly give the boot to anybody who does.

  49. People downstate are what, 15% of the population? Why does it matter what they think and how they vote if the overwhelming majority of the state's voters live in the Chicagoland area?

  50. "Fuck you, give us money and shut up" hasn't worked in the past for whatever reason...can't imagine it's going to start working now.

  51. "fuck you, give us money and shut up" is exactly what downstate Illinois has been saying to Chicago for decades and decades now.

  52. It's a bit old, but I've been really enjoying MASH lately.
