I think there is a systematic error in the data.  Disney animated movies are the modern "musical."  They have lots of songs tied to the story and are often centered around romantic themes.  But I'm doubting they are counted as musicals.

Also, the count does not seem to distinguish between wide releases and art house releases.  Look at the number of "documentaries."  The number of them that play outside of the largest cities which have art house film theaters is pretty nil.

I am now able to successfully startup the F/A-18, taxi on a carrier, launch, take out two Mig-21s and land.

I now need to look at counter measures to stop being shot down and BVR engagement. Then I'll ramp up the opposition.

Love this baby - but it's just making me wet for the Tomcat tbh.

Iím very comfortable with the Hornet too...which concerns me about the tomcat. The F14 cockpit is so analog, it is practically medieval. Itís going to be hard to go back to flying a plane, as opposed to being in one that flies you.
1 MFD!! How do we manage with that!?  ;D

The guy sitting behind should have more screens.

If no one else is successful and if there are no possibly negative outcomes other than failure then Iíd let Cato take a swing at the persuasion

The only possible negative outcome would be if you sacrificed cash on the bribe and failed -- then he'd keep the cash. But Cato doesn't have any personal cash, so...

On the other hand, if AzTank fails, Terence will have 3 extra cash, which will scotch Cato's chances completely. So at this point, with AzTank having confirmed he's going to try, and that he'll pay to maximize his chances, it's a moot point: Cato has no chance one way or another. Sorry.

I have at least one reason not to continue with the Persuasion roll yet, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon. Maybe early afternoon, though, since I'm planning to let the crew off early for the weekend as a reward for them finishing this week in powering through a heavy work schedule before and after (and somewhat during) the holidays.  :coolsmiley:
