@andi I think it's canon that a Dabo girl makes about 1 strip per day, which if we presume Quark only pays minimum wage ($15/hr or $120 for an 8 hour day where I am) and using a rough price for a big mac (about $5 where I am) then one strip should buy you around 24 Big Macs. All things being equal.
I've asked this before but where's a nice place in Canada for a queer person to live that's not too expensive
This, this is what legalization has done to us.
Burning things indoors, in an apartment, probably won't go over well. But my place has radiant heating anyways so I could just route that through the kàng instead for the same effect.
Downside is that I would never want to get out of bed in the winter 🤔
I'm reading a book about life in rural Manchuria and it really sells the kàng ( 炕 ) as a wonderful piece of living room furniture. I kinda want one now... I need a new couch anyways...

I just finished watching the Netflix remake and I want to put down some thoughts before I turn out the lights and am promptly murdered by ghosts.
I really liked the format, they really went all in on character development and it pays off in spades something you can only do with the space a 10ep arc gives you.
Cinematography was excellent. Especially the long single shots that wander around the room and pull you right in. This is how you do horror.
Fucking statuary, no.
I bought a bottle of wine for a thing this evening because the label is a hot shirtless dude. The liquor store clerk gave me a look.
@ink_slinger @Modern_Industrial I was thinking more about all the people who drink at bars, restaurants, or wherever and then self judge whether or not they are too tipsy to drive. In my experience that is by far the norm. Nobody drives to a restaurant, has a glass of wine, and then gets a cab home.
That kind of cultural knowledge of "how much is too much" kind of doesn't exist for the devil's lettuce
@ink_slinger @Modern_Industrial yeah, here we're already prohibited from bringing booze on site (along with drinking on site) so it's pretty reasonable to just add jazz cabbage to the list of intoxicants we're not allowed to have.
I'm interested to see how this is going to work once edibles arrive. Presumably restaurants and cafes will want to get in on that, but in a city that's built around the car and no real roadside tests yet...that seems problematic.
