Rest in Peace John McCain, one of the few Republicans I actually liked.

The Boy With ‘Werewolf Syndrome’

Could there be any reason why the parents wouldn't just shave the boy's head every 2nd day or so? I suspect the parents let their boy look like Chewbacca to get fame and $$$.

Regular shaving, particularly around the eyes and nose, is non-trivial. Probably an hour a day, not fun for a little kid and I doubt the parents would have time since they have to work and probably have other kids. That skin is also really sensitive. He needs laser hair removal but that would cost a fortune for them. Didn't watch the segment, but for all we know they're saving up or waiting for an offer. Or it's a god thing.

Oh yeah I should mention that five years ago today, this forum was opened to the public.
Thank you all for the good times we've had! Learned a lot on this forum, not sure where I'd be without it.

For anyone who doesn't know. Boston Pizza in Canada has started serving pizzas with "vegan substitute" as a cheese option, and it's actually quite good, I like it better than Pizza Pizza's Violife vegan cheese, although that might be because my local Pizza Pizza is stingy with the amount of cheese they put on.

iirc BP is called Boston Market in the USA, and I would assume they've added the vegan substitute there too, so just wanted to let y'all know this in case you're interested in trying / letting your non-vegan friends know Boston Pizza is a decent option for you to go together to, if you like pizza, etc.

Also, wanted to say, a semi-local restaurant has added a vegan pasta dish with Beyond Meat sausage and it's amazing. They aren't a chain, so I doubt anyone here would be in proximity to the restaurant, but just wanted to share that some places are doing great things and providing more options for us, and it might be worth looking online at various restaurant's near you and their menus to see if they've added a vegan option since you last checked.
