  1. Doom's mask isn't stuck to his face. He's taken it off in many comic issues. It just hides his disfigurement. Bane's mask in The Dark Knight Rises provided a constant supply of anesthetic to numb him to pain. I saw nothing in the movie to suggest he couldn't take it off if he wanted to -- it's just harnessed to his head. But maybe someone else has more information.
  2. You are correct, and I can't believe I was so stupid as to overlook that. Besides the Panthamech (shaped like a giant hunting cat) and Shining Warrior Epsilon, there's also full character sheets for a Black Scorpion (with a grenade-launching "tail") and a Transmatron (Multiform between humanoid and fighter shapes). The chapter on Mecha in TUV includes four pages of design guidelines, mostly applicable to Sixth Edition.
  3. Aside from Trump acting childish as a matter of course, it's always his reflex to shift any hint of blame away from himself and onto someone else.
  4. I've been cutting mine for over four years. Had to develop skills. Still doesn't look perfect, but it's adequate. New Zealand isn’t just flattening the curve. It’s squashing it.
  5. The Chinese state-controlled media floated the theory that the virus was deliberately released in Wuhan by the United States to cripple China's economy. I'm sure Trump doesn't want to give that more traction.
  6. Trump considering suspending funding to WHO "They missed the call. They could have called it months earlier. They would have known and they should have known and they probably did know," Trump told reporters at a White House press briefing, suggesting the WHO failed to sufficiently warn the global community about the virus. Yep, he's settled on a new scapegoat.
  7. Trump is talking out of turn again about things he doesn't understand, giving people misleading advice. In this case that could actually cause deaths rather than prevent them.
  8. She actually looks pretty impressive in a Star Fleet uniform. BTW I think it speaks to Elizabeth's rep that with all the monarchs in the world, whenever anyone mentions just "the Queen," she's the person most of us think of.
  9. Totally unfair that giant pandas get all the attention. Red pandas have at least twice the cuteness and adorability factor. This has been linked here before, but we all need more smile inducement right now.
  10. Closest I can think of is the movie, Elf starring Will Farrel. Despite being a comedy with a different context, I do think it offers a few insights. Said human may not realize he isn't a Gnome for some time, at least if the Gnomes don't make a big deal about it. But his size should make it obvious before he reaches maturity. OTOH if he's ostracized to any extent he'll probably develop a chip on his shoulder. Bullying, though, would stop once he gets his growth. He'll probably try very hard to fit in, to adopt the attitudes and practices of the Gnomes around him. He'll be uncomfortably out of place with everything scaled to Gnomes, unless his community regularly interacts with humans and includes housing, furniture etc suitable for them.
  11. Isn't survival rate supposed to be calculated out of people who actually contract the virus? On that basis, New York's would be 96.4%.
  12. What's the prospect for plastic? That's what Canadian bills are made from.
