  1. That may be due to the fact Discovery Communications, not Hasbro, has majority ownership of Discovery Family (formerly The Hub). From 2010 to 2014, Hasbro and Discovery had joint control of the channel. Hasbro then decided to cut its losses and sold its majority stake to Discovery. Discovery has been cruising on reruns (apart from new MLP episodes) ever since. Investing money into Discovery Family really isn't cost effective in 2021, especially when Discovery has shown little interest in taking risks.

  3. As a followup to the previous message, the lab results showed that Caesar, my cat, had carcinoma. My dad and I decided to have him humanely euthanized. He passed around 4:00 this afternoon.

    The world is less rich without this handsome beast.

      Skin cancer?... Is it that severe? RIP

      Thank you for the condolences.

      Carcinoma is a type of cancer that grows on the surface of organs (including skin). The growths were in his thorax, either around or on the surface of his lungs. It likely caused the pleural effusion (fluid building in the chest cavity) that precipitated his loss of appetite, lethargy, and difficulty breathing.

  4. One of my cats is sick. There is a high probability that he has some form of lung cancer. Yesterday may have been the last time I will ever see him.

      The crown didn't really seem to matter in the end, did it?

      You'd think Frederick and Arianna would've been madder at Eugene for stealing from them. 

    3. Yellow Diamond

      Yellow Diamond

      Well, considering that Eugene returned their lost daughter, I think it more than makes up for stealing the crown.

    RIP Tom Terrific. He was integral to turning the Mets from lovable losers into miraculous champions. He'll always be the face of the franchise.

      if you're talking about armor, (which you actually might not and i'll sound like an idiot) then they actually do, they tell the enemy that you're someone who invested alot in that armor, therefore someone to be feared, intimidation wins battles on it's own

      To your point (because I can't resist!) -- Snake's comment (as echoed by Ocelot) is that the engravings won't offer any essential benefits in combat. The wielder won't become more skilled as a result, and they may in fact overestimate their abilities. This is reinforced in the prior scene when Snake is all but drooling over the M1911 EVA provides him: he favors its technical value above the aesthetics.

      But Ocelot obviously is full of crap when he lectures a random Diamond Dog merc about the impracticality of theatricality. After all, this is a man who rolls into battle dressed like a cowboy and gets a thrill out of the slow reload time of a revolver.

  21. I know of at least one friend of mine who had it: he suffered through two weeks of fever, labored breathing, and lethargy. To say he felt miserable is an understatement. Thankfully, he recovered despite being in his later 60s with a prior history of obesity. It was torturous in part because he wasn't able to take his daily walks. I sometimes wonder if I contracted it, even if that would have meant I was asymptomatic. I traveled into Brooklyn in early March before the lockdowns went into effect. (I had to go for a hearing concerning, of all things, my medical coverage.) I felt the beginnin
