If it was August 1939, and you were a German, Aryan male aged 22 and were offered to join the SS (and you had no knowledge about what was to come) do you think you would have been smart enough to say no? Or would you have been sucked in by the lucrative notion of getting to wear that stylish uniform?
This one's bugged me for a while, really, and I've just got to ask it:
If you believe God sent Jesus to die for our sins or that Jesus wanted to die for our sins and save us and all that...why? If he/they/both are God, ie, almighty, why not just "waive the debt," rather than self-mutilate? And why would either care at all? (and "because he loves us" is NOT a valid answer...somehow Hell + Pain On a Cross =/= LOVE to me...)
It's been 3 years, and still Germany will not accept offers for a cease-fire in this long war. All the other sovereign nations have ratified the pledge and are supporting each other. When will Germany accept that he cannot break the combined will of Europe? gameID=63769

This Time On Philosophy Weekly--Grouped Stars or Dividing Stripes: Nationalism vs. Global
Now, this one I DEFINITELY want, if possible, folks from other nations outside the US to contribute to, as I'd be keen to hear what someone might have to say who actually IS part of a greater-than-a-nation-union, such as the EU, but it's a pretty simple question: Politically AND Ideologically, which is preferable--Nationalism or Globalization/Unions, and which do you believe is the "future" politically?
Hey, i have a game going on, and we scheduled a pause that was to end onf July 10th. Everyone has voted to unpause, except for France. Could a Moderater please unpause the game for us?http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=62410#gamePanel
In order to promote good playing behavior, I'd like to introduce the concept of "Death with Honor", which I suggest to be included as a tie-breaker in tournaments just after the number of wins. Definition follows:
He won the LPTPW thread with the following: "The zombie plague was but an elaborate decoy to allow my american troops to move into key locations around Belgium, such as Burgundy with the support from the rest of Europe to eliminate the zombie threat."
I know it is a little early, but I am curious. If the American presidential election were tomorrow, who would you vote for and why? You can pick Republicans who have not announced their candidacy yet. You can also pick a Democrat that you would pick over Obama.
Others, like smiley, do it because they are greedy bastards... And damn, I didn't know that you would only get 18 SCs (a little more than half of the available points). Maybe that's why I like WTA. Except I don't win...
Yeah, I was looking at that and it is funky a bit, even when computed with 31 SCs (it's 31 total owned, alderian, not 29). Rounding occurs in odd places so a variance of 3 to 5 is nothing, but it did give him the full 20 SC credit (or 19.33 SCs worth at least).
Last I checked, the equation counted all owned and active SCs, potentially stealing extra points. And if you take the 131 and divide by 18, you get 7.27 per SC210/24 is 7.24 which multiplies to 130.3 and rounds up to 131 (it's not a true rounding but a ceiling function). This also computes correctly for the other two with the ceiling function. So it is Points / (Total Owned SCs - Extras from the win) to get a non-rounded PPSC. Then multiple by number of SCs, limiting the winner to 18 and ceiling function the result.
