But who can know how far is 1.5m? Is that three feet? A hundred?
Those who's done Lamaze class :) I remember spending one class first learning what is 1 cm, then 2 cm and so on up to 10 cm. Just take that times 15 ;)

Re: Schools K-12 shut down in Louisiana till April 13th due to Coronavirus

Half of the actual medical community thinks the WHO actually recommended against using Ibuprofen. Not so strange considering that the WHO did recommend against Ibuprofen. But then two days later they retracted that recommendation. literally based on the tweets of some random doctor in France who de...

Re: Spoiler Alert! BLOODSHOT MOVIE Discussion...come in only if you have seen the movie.

I was sitting next to my friend from South Africa in the theater, and she pointed out that the chase scene through London was actually the streets of Cape Town. As was the scene at the end of the movie, in case anyone was wondering what they filmed there. Ah, I was wondering what kind of licence pl...

Back on topic I'm a bit scared over the Swedish health authorities. They have lots of strange ideas, like that the virus cannot spread in schools. But many schools close despite what the authrities say.

Re: ECCC & Coronavirus

Mixed feelings. Currently it has the same death rate as the spanish flu (might however be revised if it turns out there are infected that has not been counted), and we have no vaccine, so it is worse than the flu. Might also be more contagious. But still the reactions seem exaggerated. One aspect co...

Re: 1993 Valiant Index Heroes and Villains Roster

The VEI Livewire uses the name of the VH1 Livewire and the VEI version is loosely based on - maybe inspired by? - the VH1 version. Beyond that starting place, Dysart really made the VEI version his own. You guys misunderstood my question. I was asking if VH1 Harby Livewire is the same as VH1 Secret...

Meaning that in both VH1 and VEI Livewire starts out as a thug for Harada? See I had been under the impression that the Harada link was all VEI Been wondering how related t...
