Just don't lose sight of the possibility this is a real threat that the men and women in government are personnally worried about.

I don't know if the government can profit from shutting everything down and doling out checks. Maybe, this could be a testing ground for basic living income.

So yeah, going forward remember that Trump is responsible for about half of the still counting death count.
If only someone had warned him earlier. Someone other than the intelligence communities who warned about this possibility, or the various studies and reports that warned about this possibility, or the plans and departments and people left to watch for this sort of thing by the previous administration, or even the countless medical experts who warned about this very thing.

I guess he's lucky it's totally under control and just one person from China. And the stock market is fine. And there will be a vaccine soon. And the numbers are totally going down. And it'll just disappear like a miracle. And thousands will just get better by sitting around or going to work. And everyone can get a beautiful test. And they're doing just a tremendous job.

In an entirely unrelated note… I have finally tracked down one of the sources of the logout bug, so while unlikely that I covered every case for why it's failing imo, it's possible that there could be an actual fix for it sometime soon

Well, even if I sound a bit nitpicking, but I already said that the show in the first seasons seemed to be more of a turn-of-the-century 1900 technology. To come around the corner now with pre-war technology, which means a leap of over 40 years, including in particular one of the most dramatic technological upheavals between the two world wars, is argumentatively already serious ammo. But okay, I'll try to keep up.

Although many inventions were certainly made before 1945, I can't imagine that Polaroid-like color photos in photo albums like those in Made in Manehatten would already exist at that time. Vinyl Scratch's mixer from Testing 1, 2, 3? More like the 1990s. But could we argue that these are just Pinkie's Fourth Wall Breakthrough abilities. Various uniforms of the Wonderbolts might also exist at the end of the Second World War, but in my opinion they were only worn in the 1950s to 1980s.

But two things in particular caught my eye. The laser show in The Mane Attraction? The big screens in Manehatten Pinkie Pie hijacked in Shadow Play — Part 2? Neither really pre-war technology. All the entertainment machines in Las Pegasus? In particular, the Dance Dance Revolution Machine in Grannie's Gone Wild? The dance club in The Saddle Row Review? Although the Liquid packaging carton may have been invented as early as 1915, the spread of plastic drinking straws did not take place until the 1950s.

Probably there are many more things that could be found out now, but I already see my argument confirmed. But again, for the record. The mix itself does not bother me in any way. It's more the careless lightheartedness that took place after season four. ;-)

Sorry, had to work late today and because of the time difference I can only answer now. ;-D


@Badumsquish

Okay, the Star Wars joke was good and amusing. ;-) And it's true what you say. It really would have been better if we had seen more victory through effort. Although, to be honest, in most of the premieres and finales of the show the little ponies were trying to solve the problem somehow. It just became downright ridiculous how often there was a MacGuffin that triggered the Instant Friendship Finishing Move.

Friendship Is Magic — Elements of Harmony
The Return Of Harmony — Letters to Celestia (How did she even know to send them back to Twilight? Why has Celestia's capacity for vision always been roughly hinted by the show?)
A Canterlot Wedding — Cadance
The Crystal Empire — The Crystal Heart
Twilight's Kingdom — Friendship Box
Cutie Markless — Non waterproof paint
The Crystalling — Thorax
To Where And Back Again — Sunburst
School Daze — Sandbar
School Raze — Tree of Harmony

I don't think I need to say anything about Season Nine.

Especially when another character just happened to be around to save the day, I always found that this made the actual effort look pretty very weak. Considering the short time of an episode, I can still get over it. But is there actually a logical reason why cartoon episodes are usually round about 21 minutes long? Or is it just too expensive if you have, well, 30 minutes per episode? Or is this still due to the focus on possible TV advertising?


@Latecomer

Somewhere between Power Ponies, Rarity Takes Manehattan and Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3. So pretty much season 4. From then on, the show concentrated a little too much on its own already created world. And also became very careless about the use of modern technologies. But if we're honest, it maybe already started with Wonderbolt's Academy in season 3.

It's not so much the weird mix that bothers me. On the contrary, I even found many things very charming, but at the beginning it all seemed more like an early industrial era around 1900. With season four, I think the balance between the mystical magical world and the introduction of modern technology was completely lost. Only with season 7 and the Pillars of Equestria the own mythology came back a little. And it was remarkable. Flash Magnus fights with dragons? Hell yeah! That would have been the show I was originally hoping for. ;-D

But don't get me wrong. Of course I have always wished for a more consistent structure of the MLP world, but the focus is on all the characters, and I understand that very well. That's why I have come to appreciate and love the show more and more over the years. Because the characters were not only the focus, but also the heart. It's just a shame that the MLP world ended up being such a chaotic mess. But maybe that was also the reason for all the creativity that was generated in fandom. Who knows. ;-)

That does indeed sound promising. Are there any links to this? Anyway, I share your hope. :-D

That's not what I've seen. They've also indicated that they intend to address the pagination issue, but on the other hand that should've been one of the FIRST updates they did while they were testing it (especially since they've been testing it for 2-3 years before this permanent changeover).

Indeed, that thing contains chlorine, it's a base, so that's what it targets. So yes, it's weird, and I agree, I prefer not to have any treatment and be healthy like, right now rather than take anything. And of course, it's not preventive, maybe Trump wanted to prove a point, it didn't kill him. Might have had a shit like he never had though.

So, I'm also wondering, how this drug and the treatment that comes with it, being used in the CHU of Marseilles, had so many good results. Also everyone talks about the Hydroxychloroquinroxoxything, while also the patients have been injected Betaferon as a part of the treatment.
If it really was as many people imagined, a placebo effect many of the patients should have died.

I'll try to grab more info on this. Because i agree, many scientists called Pr. Raoult being a complete cheat, but so far, his treatment brought results that can not be linked to any placebo effect.

It's true, Pr. Raoult does not follows any of the testing procedure or any protocol, and again, the Discovery experiment failed to prove a lack of efficiency of the treatment. We should just know how and why, that's how we'd actually adapt a better treatment. But the EU just wasted a few dozen of millions into a complete lemon.

People still ignore what exactly is Plaquenil/HCQ in treatment of diseases.
Imagine it more like a missile, the payload is interferons ( to stimulate the immune system) and antibiotics, especially azithromycine are the weapon, and hydroxycholoquine is the intermediary stages.
Alone, HCQ is doing nothing. It's like you shoot a missile on a target with an empty warhead, it will sure destroy some building at best. The antibiotic is more like, the nuclear payload in that case.

Earlier we should have had results from the Discovery test, to validate which treatment, and all are giving positive results, Plaquenil/Azithrocin combo are the most efficient. Lopinavir/Ritonavir, antiretroviral drugs have a small effect in reducing the viral charge. At this point HCQ is a more radical trratment. Not the best, but does the thing.
That's why they claimed the "DisCovEry" tests from the inserm have been halted, that's not a perfect combo but all we have right now.

nope, HCQ / Azithromocin is not a magical cure, but it's not bad.
Also, all drugs are technically dangerous. If it's not, it's called a placebo or homeopathy.

Is the 5.45x39 really more effective than the 7.62x39?

Depends on some definitions.

5.45x39 is lower in recoil than 7.62x39mm and is more controllable in full auto fire, even without the big muzzle brakes that are one of the distinguishing features of AK74 type rifles. It's a small caliber high velocity round with a very, very flat trajectory, much flatter than 7.62x39mm and similar to that of 7.62x54R or equivalent Western calibers. The bullets are designed to yaw rapidly and aggressively in soft tissue, so it destroys much more soft tissue than the most common 7.62x39mm round—M43 PS steelcore ball, which generally does not yaw in soft tissue at all.

On the other hand, 7.62x39mm is about 50% more powerful than 5.45x39mm. The greater kinetic energy gives it greater ability to, for example, chew through brick walls and other light cover than 5.45x39mm.


I wish I could see some test results of the Russian's penetrator version of the 5.45x39; I remember hearing something about them being developed after problems in Chechnya due to ricochets and the standard 5.45 rounds not penetrating through cover. (Although I also heard that 7.62x39 rifles sometimes were brought in for some units to use).

Also, I read that Soviet troops appreciated the lighter weight of 5.45x39 as it made it easier to carry more ammo.

You leave out that, he intended to keep them in check to make sure things don't get out of hand, (like with Sombra, he made sure nobody got hurt) but he didn't count on them backstabbing him/Groger, it all backfired on him though, they stole his powers, imprisoned him, and such, (and at one point Tirek tried to kill him) and it did teach him a lesson to not meddle or orchistrate events to "test/help" Twilight, and such. So I believe in a way the writers intended this to ensure Discord doesn't ever do anything like this again, and teach him a harsh lesson as well. They also did it to make sure he was depowered, so viewers wouldn't assume he was ochistrating the main characters' safety during the finale, adding more tension.

Also, no offense, but it's a bit odd you use the "But they're dangerous criminals, so what he did is unforgivable" argument, at the same time of always insisting the villainous trio should be reformed.
If they're "not bad enough to reform," then Discord releasing them isn't exactly an "unforgiveable sin" either. You kinda contradict your own argument, no offense.

Put that TP down! Now!
Hydroxychloraquine may be effective in fighting the Coronavirus afterall. Initial tests done with it that were suggestive of a lack of positive affect may have been conducted improperly.
