The_Cakemeister: Unemployment has a tax form, I believe.
TheMerricat: UE isn't incomeless tough :)
The_Cakemeister: F
The_Cakemeister: But in any case, under like 10K doesn't need to fiiile.
TheMerricat: And since I still made enough in 2019 before I got let go, I didn't get any stimulus money, which is why I even have to report for 2020
badpandabear: In 2019 I didn’t file taxes because I didn’t have enough income, but that may be delaying my COVID relief check now

accountmadeforants: Do you feel this is best summarized by the Stonks meme photo or the Stock Broker with Beej's hair stock photo?
EvilBadman: the only real "games-related" part of it was that the Hedge Funds dude were expecting Gamestop's stock to fall
Juliamon: (until someone seriously is trying to tie it to the Animal Crossing stalk market, which would be WILD)

BrowneePoints: Yep. They have to liquidate their stock \
pyronils80: the main difference is: everyone is crying cause "amateurs" are doing the thing! If pro are doing this every agency etc. is blind! see the Wire Card scandal!

TemporallyAwry: Globalization is kinda messed up SirSad
r10pez10: booray
SnowBuddy18: @LoadingReadyRun for the longest time Roots clothing cost, say, $60CAD in Canadian and $60USD in the US, because they knew they could get away with making the extra money from the Americans who would never notice
F1SHOR: welcome to the family
TheMerricat: NordVPN :-P
BrookJustBones: Why do all your different currencies use the same symbol? That is the confusing part to me
The_Quiet_Alestain: I stopped buying games for over 15€. Ever.
r10pez10: importing makes very little sense for digital items
ogundiety: Import fees for digital games are pretty amusing
TheOtherTrevor: Also, doing it instantly is silly with how supply chains work and the fact that the things they are selling were paid for prior to the rate change
lirazel64: That's called "sticky prices." It happens here as well, when, say, the price of oil falls. Gas prices *never* fall in tandem.
fubargames: Wait, are taxes not included in Canadian prices either when you go to a store?
cuttlefishman: I mean, how much was the Atari back in the day?
NotCainNorAbel: that doesn't help me now
PixelArtDragon: Steam never changed its location for me from when I lived in the US so I get American prices despite not having lived there for 7 years now
LurkerSpine: I find that comparison to be kinda BS
RvLeshrac: But also, corrected for inflation, we're making a *shitload less money*.
SnowBuddy18: @fubargames no
Defrost: fubargames, Nope
BrowneePoints: PREACH IT BEEJ
LurkerSpine: Games are a lot cheaper to distribute
RandomTrivia: Wages not being equated to inflation but yeah let's not open that barrel of worms
F1SHOR: todays a real finance point lol
Arclight_Dynamo: Burn down the economy, eat the rich, etc. etc.
couldntpickausername: if we want to compare to what games used to be then we can start talking about games used to come with shit that now is "special edition" only
PharaohBender27: Yep. Federal Minimum Wage has been $7.25 for a loooong time
fubargames: I thought that was just the US.
KinoGami: depending on where you live in canada buying digital games can be tax free
TheAwkes side eyes 7th Saga on SNES that was over $100 on release in 1993.
couldntpickausername: how they used to come with guides and maps
xantos69: Hang on now....are you saying the economy makes no empirical sense and isn't always fair?
RandomTrivia: Also prices SHOULD have come down because manufacturing techniques have become more efficient
accountmadeforants: Apparently console games are going for 75 EUR now (I just went to look what the latest Call of Duty costs). Which is 116 CAD.
shadowmaster132: I was disappointed that America didn't get called Canada's underpants
GapFiller: couldntpickausername eyyy someone else who remembers Working Designs
GlennSeto: @TheAwkes Big cartridge or limited run?
TheAwkes: @GlennSeto neither.
mystikblue35: Hello
RomanGoro: Fun fact, 25 or so years ago some local shops were importing US comics and selling them for "cover price times 1.7" (the peso was 1 to 1 to the US dollar at the time). While calculating that was annoying, it usually was close enough to the canadian price which was also printed on the cover
pyronils80: wow I just converted into Euro--- Canada is REALLY expensive!
adi_pie: This is further proof that Canada should stop calling their currency dollars, and use a different name. Like Cannolis.
GlennSeto: damn
Arclight_Dynamo: Consoles are loss leaders.
DeM0nFiRe: accountmadeforants does that include VAT though? Isn't VAT something like 25%?
TheMerricat: @adi_pie I don't think that'd be a Canadian currency. :P
EightBitDreams: People were just silly. If Nintendo wanted to raise the price of the console, they would just release a new device with a really cheap new feature to justify the price
SnowBuddy18: @adi_pie Canadias
F1SHOR: @adi_pie brilliant idea
GlennSeto: Nintendo usually does not sell hardware at a loss.
accountmadeforants: DeM0nFiRe That's including VAT. Why wouldn't you include VAT?
ButButTheJesus: oh boy
Snowcookies: oh my
PixelArtDragon: I'm really curious to hear some of this
drawnbinary: the switch here is $469 (nice)
iambatmeme: is this called chillpoint bc of the copious amount of marijuanas injected on stream?????????
RockPusher: Current price if I wanted to buy a switch right now - $533.60 NZD lrrAWW
Snowcookies: Wow
Gadora: You mean console prices aren't keyed to stock prices?
Fruan: Remember - If you're able to 'explain' anything right or wrong, then you can't actually explain anything.
cuttlefishman: Beej, if you could explain HST and how it differs province to province and how that impacts pricing also?
EightBitDreams: Wow
SnackPak_: lrrWOW
GlennSeto: Heather, would you like some red yarn to illustrate this logic?
RomanGoro: Sorry, What's the nintendo pro supposed to be?
DeM0nFiRe: accountmadeforants Well I just meant that US (and I assume CAD) price doesn't include taxes, so the EUR price might actually be pretty close to the USD price if you compared pre-tax to pre-tax
r10pez10: geez
Easilycrazyhat: Fwiw, I made a xbox comment just to say it's not *insane* to think Nintendo was going up. Just a matter of timing, really.
ToastyLoaff: But then they cant make conspiracy theories! Why would you deny them that?
BrowneePoints: That hurts my brain
ButButTheJesus: i dun get it...
TemporallyAwry: People want the kick of "insight discovery" that they're willing to believe some silly conspiracy theories.
GapFiller: it IS ludicrous BUT the sad part is its ludicrous inna way thats perfectly believable by conspiracy theory standards
Orgmastron: That's some real 4d chess nonsense
Arclight_Dynamo: What I'm getting is that the Switch Pro only exists in Canada. Kappa
GapFiller: THATS the worst part

EightBitDreams: Just like Project Reality, the best console name that never was
GapFiller: Super Game 64
shea_wolfe: Super Breath of the Wild
accountmadeforants: DeM0nFiRe Oh I see, but they were talking about games costing 70(80?) CAD (or something sub-100 CAD with taxes).
PixelArtDragon: I just check the prices, and if I were to but a Switch it would cost equivalently $366, which on one hand, :( but on the other hand, better than the average for non-Americans?
BrowneePoints: You mean like Project Scorpio?
Snowcookies: Super Legend of Zelda
ToastyLoaff: Super Star Fox
ButButTheJesus: Super Super Mario Bros
SnowBuddy18: Super Super Mario Brothers Odyssey

RockPusher: "Look, we love you, but you have quite the blind spot here…"
EightBitDreams: Those people who got outraged *should* get a ribbing :)
elmyra23: @nathanlonghair lol
F1SHOR: don't take it personally Americans the aussie's get it from beej aswell benginLol
PharaohBender27: I think those of us in the US who are fans of LRR can take it. Especially after *gestures at recent history*
Arclight_Dynamo: No.
r10pez10: that's how you read it out loud
Snowcookies: That's only if you're fancophone
Arclight_Dynamo: Quebec only.

keroan0: My husband is Canadian living in the US with me and he loves when you talk about Canada because he never gets to hear anything about it here XD
fubargames: So why do you wonder where they are from?

cuttlefishman: They do do it in Franco parts of NB

TStodden: They use the european decimal standard.
The_Quiet_Alestain: here
cuttlefishman: Some of them
ArcOfTheConclave: 20.000,00$
RvLeshrac: Good-natured American ribbing involves a drone and a small incendiary package.
RockPusher: 69.420,69
Easilycrazyhat: That just feels so wrong XD
TemporallyAwry: Oh Quebec - even France would be confused :P
spurius: yeah in latin america is the same
NotCainNorAbel: Q just wants to watch the world burn
BrindleBoar: 20.000,50 instead of 20,000.50
PixelArtDragon: Just read it right-to-left, like Hebrew or Arabic
Akaiatana: I will say that it's common in Ottawa, but we are directly across the river from Quebec
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun and now you know why programmers hate localization tasks. :D
coldhands0802: The $ thing kinda makes sense. You say, "This thing costs X dollars." Not, "This thing costs dollars X."
F1SHOR: that sounds horrifying as an outsider
pyronils80: that is continental european to differ from Britain
ToastyLoaff: i read it like an IP address
NoxStryx: number with the dollar sign on the end makes sense! you don't say "dollar 20" you say "20 dollars"
GapFiller: yo Canucks non Canadian w/ a question here: does Quebec use Civil Law like France instead of Common Law like everyone else too?
SnowBuddy18: @PixelArtDragon and suddenly it becomes 50 thousand dollars
TheHaCoFo: thousends seperator and comma almost screwed me on my first DB in the donation form
F1SHOR: ahh like metric :P
Snowcookies: Yeah, they do it in franco-ontario and in french school
sarahwatchin: Quebec provincially uses civil law
gibbousm: reasons I want to add the interobang and inverted ! and ? into English
RockPusher: Just give me ISO 8601 dates
The_FlyingDutchman: no
Arclight_Dynamo: Bloody American numerical dates mean I never know if things are expired in Canada.
NotCainNorAbel: yyyy/mm/dd is the only way
TemporallyAwry: Day / Month / Year !!!
Driosenth: YYY-MM-DD ISO 8601
RandomTrivia: Heather pls, day month year
xerjen: Day Month Year makes so much more sense
ArcOfTheConclave: YYYY/MM/DD hype!
BrindleBoar: Yeah, I don't care what the standard is, I just want them to be the same.
PixelArtDragon: Why year-month-day instead of day-month-year?
pyronils80: Day Month Year !!!
EvilBadman: $ is a modifier for the numbers
QuietJay: yyyy-mm-dd or death
Easilycrazyhat: Same
The_FlyingDutchman: Least confusing date is DD-MMM-YYYY
ButButTheJesus: yeah i name files with yyyymmdd
TheAwkes: YYYY/MM/DD HH:mm:ss
Foxmar320: Ive adjusted to year/month/day because of the LRR replay spreadsheet
LurkerSpine: @PixelArtDragon Sortability
SpacePotato01: (I'm really sorry, who was the other mod who responded? The old message isn't in my chat anymore.)
shadowmaster132: @pixelartdragon because america ruined it for everybody
BrindleBoar: Year Month Day is correct, deal with it.
r10pez10: 2020 $
Arclight_Dynamo: @PixelArtDragon ISO standard. Also, lack of ambiguity.
gonvillebromhead: YYYYMMDD is best for computers (filenames, etc), dd mmm yyyy fo other purposes
RandomTrivia: Context is important
dividesBy0: km1.3?
GapFiller: nothing irritates me more irrationally then the Month Day Year ting
TheWriterAleph: you're supposed to read Japanese backward Beej Kappa
GapFiller: like gdi America
Defrost: SpacePotato01, What's up?
octavia__scratch: I want more anarchy mm-yy-dd
beowuuf: YY-MM-DD lets you sort files, etc with those dates in date order
shea_wolfe: Year/Month/Day works really well for sorting too
The_FlyingDutchman: yyyymmdd is only for filing systems
BrowneePoints: Year Month Day makes less than zero sense from a grammatical sense
cuttlefishman: YYDDMMYY
PharaohBender27: I date my journal entries month day year because of cultural habit, but I'm getting better at organizing my photos by year-month-day, since that's actually the standard for dating in my profession (archives)
NoxStryx: that doesn't parse! it should be 75$ because you say 75 dollars
Invitare: yes
TheMerricat: @PixelArtDragon DD/MM/YYYY is to easy to mistake for MM/DD/YYYY if the MM and DD are the right values. YYYY/MM/DD is unambigouus
PixelArtDragon: @LurkerSpine If you want sortability, use epoch time, otherwise you still get timezone issues
fubargames: Sweden writes dates that way
EightBitDreams: I think it's common in Europe
SniperPumpkin: 29 Jan 2021 forever!
coldhands0802: Nobody says today is 2021, January the 29th.
SpacePotato01: @Defrost I will send a whisper.
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat 100% this.
xerjen: Germany doesn't do it
NoxStryx: or we should change how we speak and say dollars 75
Snowcookies: I use month day year cos that's how it's used in francophonie
Foxmar320: SniperPumpkin bad!
LurkerSpine: @PixelArtDragon Eh, timezones aren't really a big thing for dates though.
gonvillebromhead: It's to do with how people say dates. UK will say "4th of July", not "July 4th". Hence the difference
xerjen: Germany is day month year
SnowBuddy18: @NoxStryx but numbers are meaningless until you have a qualifier, which means you have to reread the number once you know what it's for
TemporallyAwry: YYYYYMMDDHHmmss-LatLon :P
r10pez10: you mean you don't do <week of year> / <number of day of week>
coldhands0802: Too laaaaate
LordZarano: Japan does, but with dots instead of dashes
niccus: we're all weeds, baby
The_Quiet_Alestain: Germany does DD/MM/YYYY
Qvdv: Netherlands is also DDMMYYYY
BrowneePoints: @gonvillebromhead Americans also say 4th of july
KinoGami: NoxStryx it's a difference between looking at the $ as a prefix denoting the context of the number vs viewing $ as representing the world "dollar"
pyronils80: In Germany its Day Month Year
PharaohBender27: Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS), the standard for archival description in the US, asks that materials be dated year-month-day
ZioMatrixMars: europe does mostly DD.MM.YYYY
r10pez10: as long as people can understand you it's fine
PixelArtDragon: @LurkerSpine It is when you have times written both in local time AND UTC which is data I've had to work with recently
Stoffern: Norway also does DD.MM.YYYY
DeM0nFiRe: r10pez10 Ah so you're going for the Heroes of Might and Magic date format
NotCainNorAbel: DD/YYYY/MM just for the lols
Laserbeaks_Fury: AT least we use 4 digits for Year now
cuttlefishman: Problem with using Minutes / Seconds is you can easily confuse with geographical locations
beowuuf: funnily americans and UK will generally say day and month the opposite way around to how it is written
sarahwatchin: Just never schedule anything on ambiguous dates
Invitare: there's no argument in favour of mm/dd/yyy
GamesAndInk: DDYYYYMM fight me
shadowmaster132: Here we use dates d/m/y but because of the americans we tend to display it DD MMM YY so everyone knows the format
The_FlyingDutchman: NL does is 30-01-2021, I generally use 30-Jan-2021 as that is the intenational scientific way of writing
bytecaster: As a software developer I just want to not have to deal with all those headaches! Timezones are already bad enough.
EightBitDreams: The Switch costs ¥29,980, everybody rise up and protest, Nintendo is raising the price!
TemporallyAwry: Monday as the start of the week though, can we all agree on that?
Driosenth: Bee the monster YYYY/DD/MM
xerjen: But don't listen to us Germans when talking about numerical things, we're weird with numbers :D
DoodlestheGreat: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 30:52.
beowuuf: British would say July 4th, to americans it's 4th of July
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
NoxStryx: @snowbuddy18 so are words. like context clues matter. Lead < what does that word mean?
ButButTheJesus: LUL
r10pez10: is quebec not all of canada?
gibbousm: Quebec is weird
LurkerSpine: @PixelArtDragon Sure, but in a typical sense, like if someone is dating a check or something, you aren't worried about the hour. Everyone works differently. I still like Julian Day and year.
rainbowleotard: hey paul!
cuttlefishman: Quebec is like 30 frances
GapFiller: r10pez10 Quebec is totally all of Canada Kappa
BrowneePoints: Quebec is almost as self centered as America let's be honest
TheMerricat: @NotCainNorAbel No, interleaved dates, Y1Y2-D1M1D2M2-Y3Y4 :P
cuttlefishman: That's most of Canada
gonvillebromhead: @BrowneePoints There is some overlap, but MMMM DD is very a recent thing in the UK. I suspect DD MMM is more common in the US - I notice it when I lived there

SniperPumpkin: the smaller individual US states do the same thing
Foxmar320: Thats how I get everytime Florida comes up. I think this might be my chance to escape

coldhands0802: I'm from Kentucky. Nobody mentions us, and when they do, we're lucky if they think we have paved roads. : p
xantos69: So....Am I understanding correct that Canada feels about Quebec kind of the same way that the US feels about Texas? We acknowledge that they are part of our country, but they have their own weird laws and ways of doing things to the point where we don't even really count them for normal conversation.
pyronils80: I have to correct the German date use: we have a law to use the ISO standart BUT NOBODY even government agencies are using it!!!
radiowasabi2014: also hi beej!
radiowasabi2014: long time no see haha
Arclight_Dynamo: BRITISH Columbia, I bet was the reason.
RockPusher: Are you telling me the log driver's waltz might not be a documentary‽ lrrBEEJ

r10pez10: pwaaah
GapFiller: sure yr didnt Paul
r10pez10: paul you're among friends you can just admit you did
DeM0nFiRe: You throw the penguin that is the wrong penguin off the level. There's 2 baby penguins and one is the wrong one and the mother penguin yells at you when you bring the wrong one, so you throw the wrong penguin off
Snowcookies: Paul, the only good person
GapFiller: anyone here willing to own up to having done it?

r10pez10: the ouya
RandomTrivia: Wait that was also a real thing?!
Snowcookies: THE DEVICE
Juliamon: The babies are there no matter which star you're going for, so if you don't need the penguin star you don't need the penguin. Remove unnecessary obstacles.
warboss5: @Snowcookies Oooooo, OMINOUS!
DoodlestheGreat: Say, did they talk about the ooops Twitch made last weekend? Giving an award for "Most Raids" to an account that turned out to be a bot?

Arclight_Dynamo: "What, you're gonna sue Walmart for breach of contract? We'll drag this out for a decade and bankrupt you. We're keeping your money."
DeM0nFiRe: Ignatiuspants Also the game puts the wrong penguin closer to the parent penguin, so it dares you to bring the wrong one lol

Juliamon: Molladia Got it, getting an answer for you
r10pez10: hey fix our game! no not like that

gonvillebromhead: Civil Servants the same
fubargames: So, has "Penis 3" been modded in yet?
DeM0nFiRe: That is one reason why Bethesda traditionally has got a pass on their buggy games, they make modding easy so people just fix the bugs on their own
LurkerSpine: Sounds super Bethesda like
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Last year I audit-edited an oral history of a judge who had a similar philosophy, and he had a story about a law school professor who asked his students to write plainly and concisely, and he got pushback from students because the big successful firms weren't doing things that way, so why should they? :\
Arclight_Dynamo: @fubargames "Penis 3" sounds like the sequel to "Song 2" by Blur.
gibbousm: Pretty sure there's a law from Crispin Glover and Back to the Future II
Arclight_Dynamo: @Phailhammer Aaaaaaagh!
gibbousm: Personal Likeness ownership and such

gibbousm: yeah, the camera unlock let you see the nude model which was otherwise obscurred
Arclight_Dynamo: @matthaus_c sergeJustRight
Juliamon: Molladia Let me know if you got my message, there seems to be something fucky with Twitch whispers
GapFiller: awkward
RandomTrivia: Which begs the question: WHY DID THEY BOTHER ADDING THAT?!
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 Like "I'm the judge who decides if you win the case or not" seems like a good argument to do what he says, huh?
BrowneePoints: That is very gross
red_shoes_jeff: Um... WHY?
r10pez10: "deepfake kinda horseshit"
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Well, in this case it was a story about a professor who had once clerked for the judge in question
GapFiller: yeh theres a whole ting abt Angelina Jolie there
toenolla: "We put some nipples on it and some hair and whatnot." needs to be added to quotes lol
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 Ah, right. Still, though. Geez.
r10pez10: it's actually a clone database
fubargames: I liked the point/joke that this body usage rights-thingy was more dystopian than the story in the game.
LurkerSpine: Or even prop makers - they do full body scans now too
r10pez10: you wouldn't download an A-list actor
red_shoes_jeff: @Arclight_Dynamo Yeah, I remember that one.
RandomTrivia: It's approaching the "Kidnappster" episode of Futurama
ArdCollider: the NDA and legal penalties for body scanning technicians seem fairly impressive, based on old officemate stories.
RockPusher: There are many things tech has enabled now where we haven't established social norms for dealing with… there are going to be issues for many many years to come
shea_wolfe: What if they put your Con likeness in a game
accountmadeforants: Put me in, but at NES fidelity
NoxStryx: at what point will there be no actors, and all actors are just CG versions of previous actors. and when do we get copyrights our our likenesses
ArdCollider: (there's also a lot of likeness stuff around Bruce Lee, involving films where they wanted to digitally duplicate him, that you can look up if you're bored.)
fubargames: Graham's closing remark on Johnny Mnemonic Keanu was on point though.
r10pez10: scan me into minecraft
PixelArtDragon: Could the EULA of a game theoretically restrict use of game assets for things like in-game pornography?
RockPusher: See, what to do about dead peoples' social media. Families wanting virtual avatars of passed relatives… all sorts of Black Mirror stuff
Mysticman89: as tech goes forward, it's going to be even easier too, so people could get photorealistic videos of any of you as people on the internet, even without any scans
Arclight_Dynamo: This is going to happen more and more, and there will need to be laws.
xantos69: I totally understand why people would care about that. It does strike me as an important issue, but if it were me and my likeness I wouldn't care.
warboss5: I swear to the gods, if I ever become famous, I'm just going to do a Playgirl spread and remove ALL the mystery, lol
Arclight_Dynamo: "I want the guy who they scanned for Dr. Manhattan."
GapFiller: Arclight_Dynamo the problem ofc being the laws will only come in AFTER somebody does something
Pteraspidomorphi: Love, death and tombs?
warboss5: Speaking of digitizing actors, who here has seen the movie "The Congress" with the Princess Bride herself Robin Wright?
Arclight_Dynamo: @GapFiller That's kinda how it always goes, unfortunately.
r10pez10: wait netflix made carmen sandiago??
Foxmar320: The first reboot was like 101 Ways to kill Lara Croft
r10pez10: awesome
Easilycrazyhat: I always remember Conan's horrified reactions to the kill screens in the first game
TheMerricat: As someone mentioned in the YT comments, they could still do the "Kill Laura horribly" fetish via the Dragon's Lair cartoon option (showing the options before a commercial break then the 'real' choice after)
LurkerSpine: that was the exact reason I stopped playing, was basically torture porn
GapFiller: Arclight_Dynamo indeed tho itd be nice to live inna world were people have the presence to bring in laws premptively rather than just waiting for the wrong person to say 'aint now law' eh
BrowneePoints: I mean, she also Mercs people super brutally
r10pez10: ah yes, ESSO GOO
sevenishmagpies: beej no
warboss5: So you're saying ESSO is going to get their GOO all over their players in the near future?
F1SHOR: I just want my new single player Elder Scrolls already haha

lirazel64: It's... ok?
RandomTrivia: It's a BMW. Most of what you're buying is the branding
DeM0nFiRe: In the game it's a necklace isn't it? Why did they make it a ring IRL?
PixelArtDragon: Gold rings aren't actually that expensive, as I found out when buying mine and my wife's
FinalShowFilms: There needs to be more polyamory in video games in general really.
Orgmastron: ^
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, there's also a sterling silver version for $85 USD, which is very reasonable.
r10pez10: i love wagon wheels

Juliamon: A nice quiet evening to catch up on some of the other 8 Famjammers
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon If you weren't watching lrrKATHLEEN 's stream live, might be hard to do all 8 - she was playing music during it, so no VODs
Juliamon: That's why I said some
PharaohBender27: Ah! I misunderstood :D
Juliamon: I know not all were being VOD'd
cbtbftf: they are going offline?
