    Everybody Hates Chris has a lot of these. The wife says she will save money because it's on sale and Terry Crews says that she will save more by not buying it.

    I'll check those other options.

    I think what OSM mostly lack is points of interests. Shops, restaurantes, hotels. At least here in Brazil.

    If i need to go somewhere i need to search the address first on google and input on osmand.

    What do you use to help OSM? The main website or are you using some app like street complete?

    I'm running Void Linux with bspwm as a window manager. It's by far my favourite program along with cmus to play music.

    Well sure. But it would be the same, have the same taste, etc? There's more than hamburguer + cheese going on. You can create a game of thrones clone without the same names too.

    I don't know. I can see your point and i maybe agree. But is watching the new Iron Man or playing the new Red Dead Redemption really that mandatory for me? This exists even in videogame consoles, there are games for only one platform. Like there's only one place that sells Big Macs.

    I think monopolies should take a priority. It's not like you don't have a lot of choices there. That's a lot of providers.

    Every provider will have something exclusive to grab costumers.

    Having a headphone jack is better than any downside. I still can't understand this trend. I will not buy a jackless phone.

    Maybe ISPs could sell packages including subscriptions. But another problem would be which subscription. It would lead to more monopoly if they just offered Facebook instead of other alternatives....

    But another problem would be which subscription. It would lead to more monopoly if they just offered Facebook instead of other alternatives. Which already happens.

    My smartphone's data plan have Whatsapp "for free". If i reach the data limit, internet stops working, except for Whatsapp.

    I saw this some months ago and was a little put off by the pictures in the end of the book with everyone owning Apple and other really expensive products. It reminds me of the minimalist, but very rich people. Minimalism just for the aesthetics.

    I'll put my prejudice aside and read this. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Recommend me a book for someone who will start living alone and needs to be frugal (at least for the first months). It could be a fiction with this theme as well.

    I have panic attacks going underwater in games too. I HATED and avoided at all costs the underwater stage at Super Mario 64.

    In a Tomb Raider game, i killed a shark with the basic pistol before jumping in the water. He did a pattern and i could get one shot per loop. It took me almost 20 minutes, but i didn't jump in the water until it was dead.

    But surprisingly i went snorkeling in the middle of the ocean (it was not deep, but it was hard to stay upright) and i found really calming watching all the fish. It was filled with people tho.

    Yes, this too! The story of the Nutty Putty Cave still haunts me. The ending of the movie The Borderlands (2013) creeped me out too.

    I have some degree of Trypophobia. Some images are really unsettling for me. I'm not giving examples.
