Father's Day was about 2 weeks ago.
10:42 AM
@Memor-X I dunno but what I do know is mother's day isn't the same anywhere
Our father's day is March 20th
If you guys follow our way of assigning these days then you also probably root it in some religious/mythological/cultural event so it'd make sense for there to be 365 Father's days around the world
Which brings up the old question, if someone's birthday is a leap day, do they live four times as longer, or die young?

Q: Who is this character?

vojtaI have found an old umbrella from 90s with this cartoon character, probably a hippo called “Donky” (yes, it is strange). I thought it must have been some Disney character, but there were no relevant Google results. What story or universe is this character from? Who created him?

Q: Has there ever been a drama film, with an unreliable death scene confession?

StilezThis film is prompted by watching "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". In Venice, the crewman gasps "it was Grey, not Skinner", and dies. Various aspects of screenplay and score suggested this was intended to show a genuine deathbed disclosure. We tend to assume that a person dying has nothing ...
