Not surprised at all. It was $1800/mo for a 1BR when I lived in Pacifica, and that wasn't even in the city, nearly 20 years ago.
Renting by the week is the norm in Australia. My landlord thought it was weird that I wanted to pay 4 weeks at a time in advance, but not too weird for her to take the money.
Who lives in Stockholm and pays less than $1500/month for an apartment? (Or did they exclude second hand rent, which is 300% of list price?)
Stockholm isn't exactly cheap, granted, but if you're paying that much for a flat there, you're doing it wrong. My mortgage + maintenance for a 105 kvm (almost 1100 sqft, which is huge for Stockholm) 3BR ("fyra rum + kök") is about half that, it takes about 5 minutes to walk to the nearest stop on the Tunnelbana and it's about 15 minutes to ride the train from there to Centralen.
ProTip1: You do NOT have to live on Kungsholmen or Södermalm to have a nice home in a nice neighbourhood with easy access to downtown. I'm right next to Nacka Reservatet, too.
ProTip2: The rental market in Stockholm is the most completely fucked up I've seen anywhere, and I've lived all over the US and 4 other countries. Buying is heaps cheaper, and that way you get equity as part of the deal.
You can call it just a superstition if you like but psychologists, sociologists, and economists have made connections between Christian tradition and a healthy society. I'm not saying following every Christian belief will bring an ideal society, only that we've seen Christian societies excel where others did not.
I'm not gonna mod you down, but I will lay a big  on you.
Not me, in case anyone's wondering.
I would have put it more politely, perhaps in terms of "spending quite a lot of time trying to appear clever rather than actually being clever".
It's not a graph, but rather a diagram illustrating the wide gulf between two things.
It's also not especially original, but rather a fairly old and (I thought) well-known Internet meme.
One does not have to be an Islamophobe to be repulsed by killing, whether done in the name of honour or otherwise.
Are you being sarcastic or stupid? I can't really tell.
What we really need is that car rentals be banned outright.
Never again would anyone be able to rent a car to run people down in the street.
Honour killings are not limited to Muslim countries or Muslims.
I quite often fly SAS to and from Stockholm, myself.
Coming up with something would require planning, negotiation, and "horse trading" skills. Trump is not known for any of these skills.
Oh, come on. I think the President is a buffoon but even I still recognize that if he has one legitimate claim to competence in any field is it "negotiation and horse trading." I have no doubt that he is genuinely good at it.
The real problem, as Trump is painfully beginning to discover, is that running a government involves a kind of negotiations that are exponentially more difficult and unsatisfying than business negotiation. Here's why:
In a business negotiation, one of the most vital factors is the fact that (generally speaking) you can always walk away. You're trying to buy Company X or real estate Z and your negotiating partner wants an unreasonable price or unacceptable conditions that there's no breaking the impasse over? Walk away. No deal gets done, but the world keeps spinning on its axis just fine with no real consequences. (Mostly.)
But in government? You don't get a debt ceiling increase passed, you don't get to walk away while the government stops paying its bills and torpedoes the world economy. You don't get an acceptable deal with Iran over its nuclear program, you don't get to walk away and just let them build nukes. You don't get a Middle East peace agreement that you want, you don't get to walk away and remove the US from the region while wholesale slaughter starts. There are real stakes in much of what the government does and no option to just walk away.
So I think that while Trump is undoubtedly good at negotiations, he's having to do them in a completely new environment with a different set of variables and new stakes. And with a 35% or whatever it is approval rating, he doesn't have as much leverage as he's used to. All in all, it's pretty much a perfect recipe for anyone to fail at being a negotiator even if they're otherwise good at it.
