Re: I am a stable genius

You really think everything Obama said there was straight forward honesty? I think we may have stumbled across the answer to why you don't have a top 200 ghost rating ;)

Re: Chelsea Manning Running for US Senate

I don't recall Ogion ever being Obama's greatest fan. I think you're mistaking vehement anti-Republicanism for being pro Obama. Ogion is very much a leftie. Obama, not so much.

Re: I am a stable genius

Trump's told his fair share or more of porkies, certainly, but he gets criticised just as much when he's being honest. Take the subject of Haiti, for example, and compare and contrast Obama and Trump. Obama said "It’s a great pleasure to welcome President Martelly of Haiti to the Oval Office. The bo...

Re: Chelsea Manning Running for US Senate

At the end of the day it should be up to the people whether they believe her past actions make her unsuitable or not. If you don't trust the people to make the right call, you might as well give up on democracy.

Re: Post here if you live in a Third World s***hole

Only beating Western countries like Portugal, Italy, and the infamous quasi dictatorship of Belgium? You'd better behave yourselves, mothers tell their children across the globe, or we'll send you on a city break to Brussels! All that proves is that the US falls happily within the category of civili...

That's how I think it works on PlayDip, anyway. And we've largely adopted the same system.

Re: Self-Improvement General: New Year's Resolutions Edition

I like Jeff's list. I've already considered going on a ketogenic diet (concluded it wasn't a great idea after only half a minute, which I thought was pretty good going), and defined social media hours as "hours spent on social media". Kicking arse so far!

Re: Post here if you live in a Third World s***hole

The US is a free nation, which is a fact backed up by a great number of these indices. That a handful of countries may rank a slightly freer (for want of a better word" doesn't change that fact. Amusingly enough, Trump's "shithole" countries rank rather badly on these indices. Almost as if Trump was...

Re: Civil Disorder..players in a game should get the option of switching from their country to one that has no player

It gives the person who joined slightly more information then everyone else. If you have access to all past messages from two different nations then you can use that to your advantage even if only on nation is still alive. At least that is what someone else told me. Not sure how much of an advantag...

Italy may well be perceived that way by some players, but all those players are wrong :p. Plenty of errors from everyone in this game, which is what you'd expect. Pointless joining it if you weren't making mistakes. Hopefully it's helped iron some of them out :). For me, most impressive player award...

Re: Post here if you live in a Third World s***hole

He is indeed not necessarily wrong, but it is not smart to say so. And if the US doesn't need other countries, why was it the only contry so far to call on article 5 of NATO? Or begging other countries to take Guantanamo Bay people? You need goodwill. The US can be said to have done many things in ...

There's been speculation for at least a decade about Oprah running for the Presidency.

It's a place in Wales famous for its silly card games. Apparently they used to play dice there, but stopped because it was shite.
