Commas being used as a decimal point are the absolute bane of my damn existence. And what's worse, they are used in csv files with a semicolon as a delimiter. It is comma separated values ffs not a semicolon separated comma separated random fucking shit that's against the fucking syntax of every damn language. Fuck whichever dimwit that thought using commas as a decimal separator was a good idea.

    That is why my ancestors left that shithole. Commas for decimal points.

    That and the class system is inherent in the name.

    European -> Your a peon

    Seriously though, I did like visiting france.

    In CSV, I always add “SEP=;” in the beginning of file. Makes Excel (and me) happy.

    Just be grateful that the separator is a semicolon instead of a period. That would be hell.

    The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type any given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

    Semicolon for separator is pretty normal though. In C-like languages it separates commands, for example.
