Talk, or die! Reboot
"Talk, or die!" game got cancelled due to 3 NMRs before end of 03. Here's an attempt to start a new game with more or less the same settings.
Full press, 48 hours, (semi-)anon, DSS, 50 points buy-in, RR 90%.
Active players of the old game will have priority to sign up.

Banning Jenetically Modified Organisms
I think we should probably get rid of Jenetically Modified Organisms. For a while I thought they were gone but they seem to be making a comeback. Our health is at risk people. Do you wanna sit in your moms basement eating old cheese? Are you tired of being tired? Does your back hurt?

Getting Mexico to pay for the wall
Why doesn't Trump just impound Mexican land on the other side of the Rio Grande? -- land with a value equal to what it costs to build the wall. As a bonus, the wall could be built south of the river. That would make it easier to build.

Everyone be careful. There are a group of people who know eachother inviting people to their private games and metagaming to take coins. Just thought I should get the word out there.

Rise in diabeties in Dwarven and Halfling communities
Recent spikes in Type 2 diabeties have led to dramatic dietary changes in many halfling and dwarven communities. The diets consisting mostly of ale, salted pork, and pipe weed have finally started to erase the accepted idea that these races were rich in longevity. Gout, Obesity, and Type 2 diabeties have all risen. Recent additions of Mountain Dew and Doritos in Dwarven Mine Snack halls may also be to blame.

I mean I just actually want to understand, Brainbomb, why you logged into a Diplomacy website to invent a news-style story about hobbits? Are you satirising a recent real news report about diabetes? I mean what is your motivation? Why did you think anyone would want to read it? I'm honestly just struggling to understand.

It was a genuine question about why dwarves have lifespans of up to 350 years despite having horrible diets, lack of melanin from being underground. And ya know a diet thats literally meat, weed consumption and booze. Shouldnt they - based on BMI and height die around age 45-60 ?

"It was a genuine question about why dwarves have lifespans of up to 350 years"

They're fictional. They're not real. So, let's say that they have magical metabolisms. Aulë the Smith designed them so as to be able to live underground without melanin. Glad I could answer your question.

The average lifespan of an oompa loompa was probably worse than a factory worker in a meat packing plant during the industrial revolution.

Dwarves arent meant to be creatures that defy all logic and science. One would assume an elder dwarven king would have to check blood sugar regularly and eat citrus to avoid scurvy and immune deficiency. You never hear about dwarves eating any form of vitamin c.

Also... Dwarves are real Jamie. They dont carry axes or do tons of mining but there are lil people out there who can confirm if you were under 4' tall but weighed a shitload like sam gamgee or gimli youd have very severe health problems

You're assuming they have the same nutritional requirements as humans. Based on the observation that they do just fine eating nothing but meat, weed, and booze, that's not a good assumption.

Humans with dwarfism are real. "Dwarves" of the Tolkien variety, which is what you were talking about, are most certainly not.

Option to Publish private messages at end of game
