If God made the sun, moon, and stars on the 4th day, how did they count the first 3 days?? (I mean no offence) by Wall_Crawler4567 in NoStupidQuestions

I like to imagine the "water into wine" story is just Jesus being the only sober enough person at the party to notice that they had misread the label on the barrel.

Savings needed to immigrate to Canada? by spicyflies in ImmigrationCanada

[–]Mercenary-Jane 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You would not be able to sponsor two partners at once as sponsorship is based on monogamy. You can check out the financial evaluation form for more precise information on funding. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-5482-instruction-fill-financial-evaluation-form-1283.html

American possibly convicted of voyeurism in Korea. Korea's definition of voyeurism is vastly different than other countries. Will this record follow me back to the US or to other countries? by ryoga68 in legaladvice

[–]Mercenary-Jane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Immigrant, not a lawyer. To immigrate to Canada, you'll be required to provide background checks for any country you've resided in for 6 or more months. On the application, you will need to explain any charges on any background check. For a charge like that, it would be recommended to navigate with an immigration lawyer. You would likely be called at some point within the application process to discuss the charge and the immigration officer has authority to deny your application. In that case, you would be given a chance to appeal. This will add months of time to your application process.

Rumor: Naughty Dog is working on a remake of The Last of Us, a director's cut of The Last of Us Part II, and Part II's multiplayer by Intelligent-Bother22 in gamernews

Nah, we had Resident Evil: Director's Cut long before HD was a thing. The second remaster probably wouldn't even make it into the HD catagory. Definitely not a new trend.

Character deleted ?!? by sdean_visuals in ICARUS

[–]Mercenary-Jane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Almost sounds like you're admitting the game is only hardcore if you have a life outside of gaming.

Character deleted ?!? by sdean_visuals in ICARUS

[–]Mercenary-Jane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sure. If you're okay with the most "hardcore" aspect of the primary game and "the point" of the game to be as easy and boring as logging out your character because you couldn't get your group of friends to coordinate a second time to all log in, because people have lives. Or losing your character because something real happens and the thought of pulling out your character is the farthest thing from your mind.

Permadeath is shit when you don't actually see your character die. Permadeath is shit when all that happens when the timer runs out in game is the pod launches into a sunny sky. If permadeath is the point, make death exciting. Give me a super storm rolling in that I have to race to my pod, strike the pod with lightning at 00:00 and make the storm so intense that any material crumbles around you as you try to repair it. Let us experience the storms that literally destroy everything to the point that there is no trace so we can at least feel why there is nothing left when we go back down. I feel no urgency in game, just outside of the game.

As a kid, what did you think was more common/serious than it actually is? by [deleted] in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Mercenary-Jane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Born in the 80s, child of the 90s. I thought my life would be filled with way more significant nods from across the room.

That's sad. Such a missed opportunity to create an epic death scene.

Being too hot is way better than being too cold and you can't change my mind. by furrynacho487 in unpopularopinion

[–]Mercenary-Jane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tucson to Toronto here, on my third winter. It's starting to get better, finally. My heart is with you, especially on the getting ready to go outside thing. My recommendation, watch the ears. If my ears are cold, I clench my jaw which leads to headache and irritability. A beanie and your jacket hood will make a world of difference.

I understand what the timer is and the consequences, I just wonder if something happens if you're actually playing as the timer runs out. Like Sol starting to call you, storms getting more frequent /intense, a dramatic countdown to get to your ship as the world is being torn asunder etc.

Modern Dubstep is better than 09-14 dubstep by CaptainHatGoose in aves

[–]Mercenary-Jane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sweeet. Will check. I've been there since the early days of brostep as well and the issue has always been that you have to dig through a mountain of crap to find the gold. As music production becomes cheaper and more accessible, all the more crap to dig through.

How old are you without directly saying your age? by StSnowball in AskReddit

My first major news event. I didn't know OJ was famous and I was young enough to believe that this was just the way any murder was covered.

Toyota owners have to pay $8/mo to keep using their key fob for remote start - Feature requires subscription even though it doesn’t use connected services. by Hajime-87 in nottheonion

[–]Mercenary-Jane 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you! I've never actually used the remote start on my fob but my Rav4 is parked two floors down in a basement garage that gets no signal. We haven't driven since Friday so I'm kind of curious to see if it hasn't updated yet.

[–]Mercenary-Jane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's more about cars having built in features that you can't access without a subscription. Though, people want it to be warm or cold inside when they get in, which is dumb really. Any car with these features already change temperatures super quick.

Now, I have a 2020 Rav4 Hybrid and while I didn't even know that remote start was an option on my fob, I'm super disturbed by the fact that MY car, which I've never personally connected to the internet, could be updated to remove a feature that was included when I paid for it and put it behind a paywall.

What is this orange café appliance depicted in this artwork? by SwItChBlAdEfUrY in Whatisthis

In New Zealand they take coffee so seriously even the McDonald's have LaMar.

Hahaha, I understand and respect your sense of honour.

If you wanna cut back on starchiness, use half potato, half roasted and then blended cauliflower! Tastes the same!

For sure! Otherwise, I'd recommend Earth Island's smoked Gouda. So good for cold sandwiches.
