~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: The EGF triangle looks like abstract art. Reminds me of this hilarious piece of 1930s art I once saw in a museum: "Invisible mountain with red arrows". It was just red pencil arrow drawn on a white canvas.. What a genius artist to get people to pay you for that.
~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: As someone who sells fine art for absurd amounts of money to people with absurd egos, I can confirm that many artists get their money for nothing, while many others are incredible artists and eat ramen because the absurd egos don't like it.
~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Jackson Pollack's No. 5 sold for over $140,000,000 but it looks like a three year old got their hands on mommy's makeup.
~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I can also confirm that the Mona Lisa is da Vinci in drag.
~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: So you're saying I should become an artist?
~09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: If you can invent a style that is influenced by other famous artists but doesn't at all resemble them and can find a rich person to sponsor you and drive up the price of your art or an auction house that is willing to take it and try to make a name for you, then yes.
~10 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: You don't know shit about the Congo. And by the Congo, I mean modern art.
~10 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I know what's worth money, so when I see it cheap I buy it. That's all I care about.
~13 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Do these phases ever end
~13 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I have finalized my orders.

On the game:
I must say that the machinations between England and Germany have been very interesting to spectate. No idea what E and F's motives are for 5(!) years of zero growth, trying to break a record? ;)
