the fact that you think this is laughable points to how left you are compared to the average user.

Here's some data on reddit vs the US average. Admittedly from some time back but it hasn't changed much. https://www.statista.com/statistics/517259/reddit-user-distribution-usa-political-spectrum/

Aren't forums technically social media as well?

puts him pretty solidly to the right of most people here.

i feel like lemmy is pretty left of reddit, which in itself is pretty left-leaning... so saying "right of most people here" is a really low bar

News headlines gonna be like "millenials are bankrupting an American institution, the fast food industry"

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago

I mean, that's basically what restaurants do...

My friends and I were hanging out at my mates' place (he used to work as a line cook), he made us all pasta and it tasted amazing.

Turns out the secret was to add a scary amount of butter, and then add some more.

Salt, butter and MSG is the secret behind half the restaurant industry.

Next you'll be seeing bs gaslighting articles saying "American carmakers are being driven to bankruptcy thanks to millenials' changing preferences"

Isn't that just a game of whack a mole though? Ban VPNs ending in Charleston, people hop to another location. Rinse and repeat

I mostly use All as well. I have the following blocked:

  • all the meme communities that pop up. It's just spammy posts

  • all beehaw communities. Mostly because they were defederated with the largest lemmy communities, and I didn't want to talk to only a small subset of users. Not sure if they've changed anything since

  • hexbear because... Hexbear

Many mobile games are just thinly veiled attempts at monetization. Get people hooked, then start adding time-bound gates you can unlock, add PvP with loot boxes and multiple types of premium currency that's hard to keep track of. Doesn't matter what the game is about - you can do this to racing games, fighting games, gardening games, whatever.

That said there are still mobile games that are fun and genuinely good gameplay - I used to love Minigore too, after it was available on Android. But these are few and far between.

For people who DON'T need to be in office, forced RTO is stupid because it wastes commute time.

For people who DO need to be in office, forced RTO for others is stupid because it creates more peak hour traffic and lunch rushes, making their own commute/lunch suck more.

For urban planning, forced RTO is stupid because again it increases road usage and creates unnecessary clumps of high-density areas, causing inconsistent use of urban infrastructure.

For landlords, forced RTO makes sense because it props up inflated real estate prices.

Guess what's happening now?

Just got into this game recently, so maybe this is well-known knowledge but... is there a point to upgrading to Central Market and Wall Street?

Using values for Hard difficulty:

  • Marketplace costs $1350+$270+215+$3130=$4965, and generates $320 per round.
  • Central Market costs $21,165 (Marketplace+$16,200), and generates $1120 per round (+ boost to merchantmen).
  • Monkey Wall Street costs $85,965 and generates $5120 per round (+ 5 lives).

Looking at the math, Central Market generates 3.5x as much income per round as Marketplace, but costs. 4.26x more. Wall Street generates 16x as much per round as Marketplace, but costs 17.31x as much.

So unless you have a lot of merchantmen, wouldn't it be better to spam empty spaces with Marketplaces rather than upgrade them to Central Markets?

Similarly for Wall Street - without any knowledge points, I can see why the +5 lives generated by Wall St makes sense, but if you have the "Healthy Bananas" knowledge point, 16 Marketplaces is strictly better than one Wall Street - although I suspect available space would be an issue here.
