1. Hi! I am not from Scotland but am having a couple of friends there. They told me that they had to vote in pencil! Is it true? It doesn't sound like a serious vote .. the result could easily be faked!

    You could use a pen but only pencil was provided at the ballot booths.

    They use a waterproof pencil, which makes it more difficult to change than another pencil or pen, which was why it was recommended that we use the pencil in the polling booth.

    What? don’t everyone vote with a pencil? We always vote with a pencil at every election.

    lord no. We have voting machines. On the rare occasion someone needs a paper ballot, you use your own writing tool.

    In France, even for presidential elections, you just have several bits of paper (official papers) with names, and you put the one you want to vote for in an envelop. Post it in a huge box, and you’ve voted.

    If you’ve written anything on the paper, your vote doesn’t count for your candidate. You can also post an empty envelop.

    As far as I’m aware the US is the only country to vote with voting machines, everyone else is still manual.

    Well, as we all learned from watching Scandal, voting machines are bad because dodgy people will come along and rig elections with them. I enjoy our pencil paper system, thank you.

    if there’s something to be won, people will find a way to rig it, pencil, pen or machine. Paper ballots are magically “lost” like the odd machine is rigged. Dishonest people will find a way.

    Friendly reminder that Brazil uses actively voting machines for up than a decade and in the old times, when people there still used paper and pens (and pencils weren’t allowed) the results were heavily manipulated. Just a reminder.

  2. Meanwhile, in my serious!job…

    … Everything is pretty. Everyone is dressed.

    I almost can feel as a decent human being.

  3. The fic+music meme!

    I was tagged by nextraordinaire who created this meme, and I can’t step back xD

    The rules:

    List five (5) fanfics of choice and one song to go with each one. You don’t have to think about the lyrics at all if you want - just that one song that sets the mood for that one fic. Explanations are optional.
    Tag five (5) friends and most important of all - have fun!

    I could make an endless list, but here go the 5 first cherik fics that occured me:

    1 - Nine Eleven Ten by subtilior = Pale Horse Phantasm, by Arborea - The music practically translates the fic in symbols, I seriously shivered when I first listened to Pale Horse, because I literally could “see” a story growing there. Don’t give me attention, I usually see too much (and I tend to go too deep…).

    2 - Coax me out my love low by tahariels = Like a Virgin, by Madonna - Once I annoyied Tahariel saying that Erik was singing Like a Virgin after his first time with Charles. I can’t even say I was entirely kidding when I suggested it (and I know there’s a place in hell saved for me, after that)

    3 - Missed Connections by aisle_one = What your soul sings, by Massive Attack - Delicious music that pretty much translates the impressions I got of Charles in this fic, where the unsaid is stronger than what is said. A jump in the cliff.

    4 - Counting bodies like sheep by cm (mumblemutter) = Wake up, by Arcade Fire - This fanfic got written with fire in my brain, and this music relates to it in every single sense, even the crescendo and the open ending that is equally intriguing as everything before.

    5 - The boy with the heart on his sleeve by euphorbic = Beat the devil’s tattoo, by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - I even recced this music to euphorbic, because I couldn’t help but remember of it when I was reading the fic, and because the music itself (in my head) was strongly related to the fic, specially what goes with Erik. I told you, Eu, I tend to go way TOO DEEP.
