Does anybody recognise the film this comes from?
I saw this in a film long ago and, being the father of daughters, decided to remember it, but I can't remember which film it's from. Does anybody recognise it?

Scene:Man meeting daughter's new boyfriend for the first time:-
"Remember this: I own a shotgun and a shovel and there's 300 acres of woodland behind the house... soft, loamy, soil... rich, earthy, smells..."

What to do when detecting cheater in anonymous/no ingame message games?
I just want to know how to handle if 2 team players join a anonymous/no-ingame message game.

Is there any way to prevent people doing such stupid things or are there any consequences for them?

Whoever is Germany in "A Fish Called Walrus"
You need to click the "Ready" button, not just the "Save" button for the game to progress. You are slowing up the whole game unnecessarily.

How do you know he is holding up the game unnecessarily. I realize it is a gunboat, but maybe he quickly entered provisional orders, with the intention of coming back later and rethinking? Don't forget players here are from timezones all around the world.

Because he has saved for all the turns that I have remembered, including retreats with only one possibility.

Please do not discuss ongoing games in the forum. Especially not gunboat games.

Maybe it is okay to discuss some things about ongoing games in the forum? It is not as if he is influencing move choices.

That is my point.

I wouldn't have a problem if the game weren't gunboat. Pointing out that one person isn't finalizing could influence other powers to attack him.

Not a huge deal, by any means, but it's somewhat inappropriate, in my opinion.

Any statistical wizards here?
I've always been poor at methods. I'm trying to analyze a pooled time series of various countries to see the effects of war/militarized disputes on state strength (as measured by taxation, institutional 'coherence', military spending, military personnel and some other factors). Any clue as to how to do to do a panel-corrected standard error procedure on a program like R or Stata?

Variant Elimination Game
Each round, add one point to your favorite variant, and subtract one from your least favorite. When a variant runs out of points, it's eliminated. When you post, put a (+1) and a (-1) next to the ones you change, so it's easier to follow.

What are you reading at the moment?
I just finished reading "Why the west rules for now" by Ian Morris. And now (continuing with the theme of historical determinism) I am about to start "The next 100 years" by George Freeman. He predicts Poland, Turkey and Japan will become super-powers (and maybe Mexico also).

Can a mod please check the webdipmod email?
I have sent a multi accusation there that needs swift action. The cheating is so obvious by the players' names, but the turn runs soon and I don't want the game destroyed by a cheat. I'm doing too well in it.
