I would be interested in suggestions for specific success stories coming out of the work of the UN - and any of its constituent agencies... I am not implying that I think the UN is a failure, just trying to get a list going. It is for a discussion.
I have a fleet at Mid-Atlantic Ocean moving to Spain south coast. I have a fleet at Gascony. Can the fleet at Gascony support this move? Could the fleet at Gascony only support a move to the north coast and not the south coast of Spain?
How does one resign oneself to the fact that some players in gunboats are short sighted morons who can't see the freight train coming from afar and are more interested in trying to snag one more center than in stopping someone else from soloing?
I'm not leaving any of my games in progress, I might note. That's just lame.
If I have a GR of 50 and I enter a game that takes days to complete... but meanwhile I am playing live games and my GR fluctuates...

Rich countries are rich because they exploit poor countries
Take consumer electronics for example. I can afford to buy a cheap television because some poor person in China works for 12 hours a day on very low wages. Those of us living in first world countries need poor countries to remain poor so we can maintain our lavish lifestyle. My housemate tells me this all the time. What do people here think?
