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?

How about what is the best thing about any country yo do not presently live in?

For instance I loved the old churches in Germany. I was sitting on a hillside one Sunday morning when I was there and the crisp morning air and church bells ringing was an awesome and memorable experience.

I can imagine church bells ringing all the time could be a pain when you live there, but as a visitor it was charming.

The national park system in the US, the Uffizi in Florence, Kruger National Park in South Africa, the rain forest in Brunei, the view from the Sacre Ceur in Paris, schloss Neuswanstein in Germany, the old town in Tallinn, the fjords near Stavanger and the Waddenzee in Nl jump to mind

Let me corect on Paris: the best view is the view from the Tour Montparnasse, since that is about the only place where you cannot see the Tour Montparnasse.

The ancient temples in Egypt stand alone as the most impressive buildings I have ever seen. Nothing matches them in majesty and beauty, and the views over the desert from the top of one of them will stay with me forever (and not just because I had to bribe a guard with a massive gun to let me up there, which as a young teenager felt really cool).

The best things about living in Britain from my perspective are:

- The outdoors. We have a lot of green space in the UK and it is very accessible thanks to a our ancient system of public rights of way. In the UK you have a legal right to walk over thousands of square miles of *private* land because of the public rights of way that run over it. Plus the fact that Britain is an island, or rather a series of islands, means there is a vast amount of beautiful coastline.

- Pubs. NOT bars. Pubs. The difference between a British pub and a "bar" is something a lot of people who've never been here don't grasp, but it's quite significant. On a cold winter's evening, nothing is quite as comforting to the soul as walking into an old pub with an open fire, friendly company, and good ales.

- Our superb National Health Service. Not being political but it's truly an achievement of civilisation and that's why we defend it.

- Privacy. In Britain people are good at minding their own business and it is comparatively easy to enjoy personal time, and personal space.

- No guns. Again, not being political, but one of the best things about the UK is that basically nobody has a gun, and nobody feels unsafe as a result of not having a gun. Most of our police are unarmed and this makes the place feel *safer*, not the other way around. On the occasion that you do see an armed police officer in the UK, you instinctive reaction is to think "oh shit, what's happening!?" because it's generally a sign that some sort of threat is expected.

==========

Things I like about other countries I have experienced:

Germany is full of beautiful women and their beer is different to ours, but also good. They are also very fond of heavy metal music.

Italy has some of the best cuisine on the planet, some of the finest wines, and in the summer the landscape is really beautiful.

In Iceland everyone is mad, but if you stay there for a few hours, the climate and culture drives you mad as well, and then you have a nice time. Finland is a bit like this too.

Our National Health Service. It was once truly an achievement of civilisation, and that's why we continue to throw good money after bad to try and stave off its inevitable decline.

Jamiet99uk (25 D)
19 Nov 17 UTC
@Croak: I wasn't trying to be political I just couldn't not mention how good our health service is. It's under strain at the moment and still great compared to most of the alternatives. I speak from experience. The NHS saved my life. I have a long term medical condition due to which I've spent weeks in hospital, and I can attest to the excellent care I received, all paid for via taxation, not insurance. Decent healthcare is a right, not a product.


I'm not criticising anyone else's health system, but ours is good and it should be applauded.
CroakandDagger (706 D)
19 Nov 17 UTC
Your experience contrasts with mine. My father was misdiagnosed as "fine" by an incompetent NHS jobsworth "doctor" and the next day he was dead before noon.

If decent healthcare is a right, the NHS does not deliver it.

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.
