Re: Play smart, or less so?

When in press, should you pretend you are smarter than you actually are, or less smarter than you actually are? There's pros and cons to each, thoughts? Depends who you’re talking to like any diplomatic consideration. What do you think the opponent wants to hear that will sway him to do what you wo...

Good one. I’d forgotten how Lindisfarne were until this reminded me.

Re: Missed turns

Yes, Gunboat &/or other maps/variants (or more than 5 games simultaneously) They upped it from 3. Significant improvements were made.

Can you play protected games without paying?
Yes, it’s not a “premium” characteristic. Neither do “Anonymous” or “Live” any longer require payment.

Re: Missed turns

This system is working on the playdiplomacy.com. I think it is the worst on that site. Or maybe the messaging system. It is hard to decide. :) I play PlayDip & webDip & this is unfair criticism. Firstly on PlayDip, there are “protected” games that work similarly to webDip, so you have a choice (unl...

Re: Announcing the 2020 Masters Tournament

Who are you calling crazy tits? (for politically correct and overly sensitive readers, tits in this case refers to the birds) In England tits always referred to “birds”. That’s what’s inherently wrong with you people. :) No recall of “The Liver Birds” vintage 70’s? Now there were some wonderful pai...

Re: Happy ThanksEating Day

Tommorow is the day many folk speak of thanks, but mostly we eat... So... I guess grace at the dining table has become even rarer nowadays... My family and family's family have usually prayed at mealtime. Not just at thanksgiving/eating. But probably this is merely another example of my weirdnessos...

Re: Devaluation of specific fields by society

An interesting review of some the issues relevant to US Education. It emphasises a point that such arcane BS would unlikely to be allowed to influence, a law practice, or a top of the line cancer clinic, or an NFL team, or a University research department, or a technology company, or I’m sure you’re...

Devaluation of specific fields by society

OK, these are new thoughts for me & might not be brilliantly expressed but I’d be interested in comment... NB I am an ex-salesman. Not any of the following; lawyer, doctor, teacher, sportsperson, police officer or creative artist (you’ll see the relevance of this later...) We all know that people wh...

Yep, all sadly predictable. My teeth are far from great, but I’ve made it to 61 & still have most of them:-) My mum limited soda to Christmas only!
