Is Playing Diplomacy a "Right?"
How many teenagers and twenty-somethings fritter away their days playing diplomacy instead of making sure they get an education or aren't a burden on society?

Sorry :-( I am incredibly happy to be a member of the UK, and love that I was at the right time to get through our education system. Right now I'm mainly digging for a response from TC having replied to his comments in 3 or 4 threads.

And seriously engineering - thats like some intelligent shit, damn I knew you were clever abge but ;)
I for one would like to point out how TC's time on this site allows him to leach off society. TC might have a business and employs some folks. Shouldn't TC be looking to provide more folks with jobs being the benevolent corporate giant he is? Isn't his time berating us on this site a waste of time an effort that could be spent bettering himself and his country as a whole? Couldn't his business be that much better if he put more time into it (after all all a business ever needs to succeed is hard work, and the harder the work the more successful you are) shame on you TC for your greed and laziness. Think of all the Americans you have let down. A complete pity.

Why is America in so much debt?
The size of America's debt is staggering and it is really hard to imagine it ever being paid off and the long term negative consequences are very worrying. How did a country run by smart people allow itself to get into this awful predicament?

variant idea
Has this been tried before?

So I'm thinking of attempting to design some kind of randomly generated map to stir things up and avoid the same old alliances and same old outcomes. Would the community be interested in something like this? Would the powers that be support it if I was able to develop a good one?

HEY! So I am in gameID=64922 its no messaging whatsoever but I have a global message to look at, I assume it is something about a multi getting kicked but I can't read it to get the little message at the top to go away, so how do I get it to go away?

Why is the colonial variant disabled?
I noticed that there are four other variants that are on the server yet are disabled. What is the purpose of this? Wouldn't more variants mean more gameplay for the members here? I know I'm new here so if there was a good reason before I left, I'm interested in hearing about it.

Sort of a Goodbye
School will be starting soon, so I'll have trouble keeping up with all of my games. I will definitely be taking a break, so you might not see me again until December. By then, I'm sure I'll have several new people to argue with in the forums and quite a few of you will have forgotten about me. But that's great! Wouldn't it be nice to have some worshippers on WebDiplomacy? That way I'd win every game!

Am I being naive here?
I never understand why people would ever want to have one-night stands/casual hookups. If you're attracted to someone enough to fuck them, why wouldn't you want to date them? I mean, I'm sure sex is fun, but wouldn't a relationship+sex be even more fun?

Portland, OR
Had some time to explore Portland, OR today. It was really nice. Clean, not congested, I never had to wait to cross the street. Overall, a much "happier" city than Boston. Oh, and a cute chick was dancing around flashing people, so no complaints there.

England's Riots
Does anyone oever there--or over here, for that matter--know what's going on, ie, why these folks are rioting?

All I get in searching for it are notifications about England's...cricket team...? And a friendly? Is that it, is this all one big "soccer riot," so to speak, or has Yahoo's serach engine failed once again, and there are real, important reasons behind all this?
