If my opponent moves his army from Tuscany to Piedmont and I convoy my Piedmont army to Tuscany via the gulf of lyons at the same time, will they swap places?

Interesting read
I'd like to hear what the right wing thinkers (and not trolls) think of this article, as well as the liberals here.

Mostly a criticism of market liberalism: https://jacobinmag.com/2017/05/handmaids-tale-margaret-atwood-trump-abortion-theocracy

Tax dodging and capital flight
Ok, this youtube video discusses it. In brief, company extracts mineral wealth, sells for a low price to parent company based in a tax haven, declares no/very little profit. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ocm42ytXto )

Probably not in the Bible but...
Before Jesus took over John's ministry what did people think of the fact that a man in his upper 20s wasn't married and had no children? Wouldn't that have been exceedingly rare at the time?

I am retiring from Trolling
I will henceforth focus my efforts on promoting games, offering opinions on actual issues and an occasional contribution that may be amusing. My goal was never to see the forum overrun with nonsense. Sadly its becoming unreadable and the threads are so abundant that trolling is now all thats happening. Sorry webdip for ushering in this era.

Completely unrelated thought
You can easily walk out the door and abandon your life, start over and become a new person. But can you do the same to your mindset? Can you drop all previous prejudices/perspectives/opinions, (but not facts) and build a new world view? A new model for interacting with reality?

I seriously lost my cool last night, and I'm quite sorry. Although we discuss very serious, and sometimes life or death issues for some, that tone is way out of bounds.

About those earth rays..
Years ago, I started a discussion (and an infrequently used meme) about how I used to have severe headaches as a small child until a small metal device that my parents can't describe very well was buried in the frontyard and my headaches disappeared overnight. My parents cited mythical earth rays as the cause of the problem. The brilliant minds of webdip saw a placebo effect as the only possible answer. I found another possible explanation and would like your thoughts.

Barron von Trump just got admitted...
to middle school at St. Andrews Episcopal in DC. "Melania Trump cited the school’s diversity and academics as the reason behind the selection"
This was reported by Time Magazine.

Is anyone here aware of what kind of diversity a school with 38k tuition has? Even CAPT_Brad can't afford that!

Unanswerable Questions
Lets play a game. In this thread you may post only questions which have no right or wrong answer. If you post a question which can be answered with empirical evidence you are eliminated. Example: Are aliens real.

Okay, it's time to look who is eliminated by brainbomb's rules.

1. "Was Jesus real?"

Jesus was an invention of the secret service of the Roman Empire to make Zealots in the Judaean Province become more peaceful, so this is no unanswerable question.

-> Q answerable, ComByr's out.

2. "Can prayer cure disease?"

Try it! Unfortunately you cannot talk about it anymore, if you've died by (any) disease, coz you didn't trust in your physicians.

-> Q answerable, bb's out.

3. "Is Satan real?"

The believe in Satan presumes a believe in God or any other higher Being Whom you revere, so let's ask Boole. He says, the conclusion of something false is both true and false.

-> Q answerable, bb's out (but he/she/it was before, see Q2).

4. "Do you know shit about the Congo?"

Fo'shizzle: NO!!!!

-> Q answerable, 2ndWL's out (but he/she/it was before, see Q2).

5. "Can prayer cure Brainbomb?"

-> For answer see Q2, MM's out.

6. "Who is the most dead?"

-> Hrm. Okay. That's hard. Most of you may say "God". So see Q3 for answer.

7. "Let's suppose a starving canibal decides to eat himself. After he's done, will his weight have doubled due to eating his entire body, or will his new weight be 0 since everything he was got eaten?"

-> Pretty kewl question, but easy to answer: No. Sev is out and may search for "Conservation of energy".

8. "Does Trump know what he's doing as president?"

-> It doesn't matter. The last president, who knew something about what he was doing was Eisenhower. Maybe JFK, too. But then he was the last one. "Kill one and warn a hundred", as you know.

9. "How many roads must a man walk down, before you can call him a man?"

-> Q answerable: none, VN's out.

10. "Who is brain bomb?"

-> Brainbomb knows, so answerable. MF's out.

11. "Why is brain bomb?"

-> Brainbombs parents know, so Q is answerable. JK's out.

12. "Is the follow statement true or false? This statement is a lie."

-> Q answerable, see Q3.

13. "Bump?"

-> Q answerable by: "WTF?"

14. "What is the ultimate question for which 42 becomes the answer to "life, the universe, and everything?""

-> Q answerable, but you gonna wait for sum Billion years or so. (Sorry, TP.)

15. "If we demand justice will we ever get it?"

-> Q answerable by history, pjm's out.

16. "Who is the best partner for Austria?"

-> Q answerable (Italy), so Bua's out.

17. "Should we kick a tin can down the road?"

-> Q answerable (why not?), so CAPT_B's out.

Who remains in?

Why does paper beat rock?
brainbomb (345 D)
14 May 17 UTC
Rock bashes scissors
Scissors shred and annihilate paper
But paper changes nothing about rock which renders rock any less deadly, useful, heavy. Virtually nothing about rock is changed other than it may resemble a gift now (which ny my estimation makes it even more dangerous.)

So why does paper beat rock?
