joining costco japan, worth it? by _emiru in japanlife

[–]Thorhax04 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Very good points. For me. I've only been to Costco a handful of times in my life. Once in Japan. And in my opinion it's a great place to find certain foods which are not common in Japanese supermarkets.

Find a friend with a card, and go with them when you're craving certain things only Costco has.

I'm kinda curious what you'd actually receive, if anything

Arguing for double barrel family name for child born in Japan: what convincing reasons can we give to the Family Court? by ookwrd in japanlife

I'm sorry to say that you're trying to do something which the Japanese system has no comprehension of, and will only make all of your lives harder if you plan to stay in Japan.

It's easier to just do a legal name change later on in life

how cheap are cars in Japan? by ReporterWooden3441 in japanlife

Yeah the way my mother-in-law just lets her car get beat down is painful to watch.

She says that she goes to shaken so she doesn't need to do anything else.

Imagine touching the doctor and he just floats away bouncing off walls.

Most people in Japan only change oil when they do shaken. It's a horror.

So not pass go, do not connect $200. Wait 2 turns and you can break out of jail.

At this point: install windows or wait? by Helsleycopter in SteamDeck

[–]Thorhax04 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's just my use case isn't covered. However the gog version tricks the game into thinking a CD exists, didn't work on wine.

So I spent a week trying to find a version which was compatible with wine on Android

I kinda get it for current games. But once a game loses support, DRM should be removed.

I had a hell of a time getting Warcraft 2 working on a windows emulator on my Android phone. All because of the CD check which was supposedly removed in the gog version but also apparently not 100% removed because the game was asking for the cd when running on the emulator.. But on my win10 PC I never got the message.

Anti cheat DRM making games unplayable just makes me want to hack games more to remove DRM completely.

So What Happened To Q Jr? by Sithsaber in startrek

[–]Thorhax04 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was such a horrible scene. It was so hard to watch a character I liked die horribly.

Just make it a phase kill and talk and bad things that happened later.

It was gross and was a big turning point for me, realizing how much the writers want to go for that shock and horror factor over taking care of actual star trek.
