Cookie Monster Solutions
Instead of regulations, (YAWN), lets have unrestricted gun laws and limitless purchasing. The only rule is the retail employees *must* dress like cookie monster to make gun stores more kid friendly. Offer gun buyers a plate of CoOKiEs.

Mansplaining and manscaping
I heard people use the term mansplaining recently. It was negatively stigmatized but what does it even mean? Also I head people saying something about manscaping and I wondered if that was a type of yard work. Any input is appreciated.

Spring 1901 NMR
What provisions are there in general for dealing with players who NMR on the first turn? Should we simply agree on a draw and try and rebuild the game with new players? Is there a way to bring in replacements?

New York is the best.
Now that I've gotten everybody's attention, would anybody be interested in playing a game of American Empire where everybody plays as the region that they are from? I think that might be kinda fun and could be a way to release some of this clearly geographical tension that is brewing in the forums.
I'd have to claim NY

While I'm disappointed and not surprised in the slightest that all of the JFK files didn't get released, there is still a lot of gold in them.

Our prime minister then (Deifenbaker) allegedly refused to be bullied by America into cutting trade with Cuba and was looking to make some extra bucks off Cuba while no one else traded with them.

The CIA naturally didn't like this and wanted to punish us.
Deifenbaker was a badass.

Canada is pretty much just the 51st state of America in terms of foreign policy tbh.
Less so with Trump in office. Canada's FP has been drifting more towards Europe as of late. The TPP is also probably continuing without the US.

One of the enduring propaganda myths of the Cuban missile crisis is that Russia and Cuba "started the provocation" by placing missiles in Cuba. The truth is that this was a response to the USA putting missiles in Turkey first.
The agreement reached to settle the crisis was that the Russians would remove their missiles from Cuba first, and that after that was done, the USA would remove it's missiles from Turkey, which they did.
Of course it had to be presented to the people of the USA as a victory for JFK so that's how it was publicised, and the removal of the missiles from Turkey was given no publicity by the government of the USA, or that "Liberal" media we hear so much about.

Canada seems to have a tradition of making a few dollars when the opportunity arises. It's distilleries & breweries did great business during the prohibition in the 1920's.. Most notably a small distillery across the great lakes from Chicago.. Well they were a small distillery at the start of prohibition..Seagram ~~who are one of the larger distillery businesses globally these days..& it was that decade, the 1920's that gave them the opportunity, which they seized, and built themselves up into a major operator and was the basis for their continued growth.

Yeah, the Guess Who were one of the first bands I "discovered" from my parents LP collection. BTO and Rush are also favorites from Canada. And I have a soft spot in my hard for Kim Mitchell too. Go for a Soda got a fair bit of airplay when I lived in New Jersey. Any relation?

Perhaps an extremely distant relative of my player name LoL.. Like Joni Mitchell LoL. I picked MajorMitchell as a player name because it is the name of an Australian Galah...loud and noisy, and in Australian slang a galah is used to describe a "flaming idiot".
But I am a fan of The Guess Who & knew about the BTO connection.

What does Bhm. Sea stand for in the modern map version?
In the modern map, there's a territory named Bhm. Sea. What does that stand for? I always assumed Bohemian Sea though that doesn't exist (and the sea isn't close to Bohemia). Perhaps it is Bornholm Sea (after the Danish island in the Baltic in that area)?
