Uganda Deployment
Now don't get me wrong, the LRA are some nasty fuckers and I doubt anyone on the forum who is familiar with their handywork sympathizes with them, but why this deployment and more importantly why now? Am I missing something?

How do you clear the Unread Messages icon in a gunboat game?
This is driving me crazy.
The messages are from mods letting people know about players who got banned (I just took over one of them).

How about that Gunboat
Question: In a "No chat, Anonymous" game, is it acceptable that one player is seen to be supporting another and, if so, how are they communicating??

Anwar Al-Awlaki
The United States has assassinated an American citizen, never having been charged or indicted; this has sent a precedent that anyone the government deems a "threat" by a legal analysis the government won't even release can be blown up from the sky. There is no outcry or even discussion among most Americans; he is a terrorist. When people exchange liberty for security, they deserve neither.

Deleting supply centers
If I was to delete some supply centers on the map to improve balance and to make the map less unit-crowded, I would delete centers in Rumania, Denmark and Portugale. What do you think?

Ulysses, James Joyce
So, I'm reading Joyce's Ulysses this week as part of my studies. It's a renowned and controversial text so I figured many of you here would have something worthwhile to offer me on it. Although I expect and welcome a fair amount of comments of ridicule - I hope some of our more scholarly contributors might be able to offer me an insight/judgement or two.

"If *I* Say Its Too Hard, Joyce Has Clearly Failed.*
^True quote from a guy so pompous even *I* can't stand him (who claims to know all about...everything, and knows nothing, INISISTING English people wore no pants or anything of the sort until Henry VIII, and that tarring a guy's ball's is ESSENTIAL to understanding Huck Finn...not kidding, he said this)
1. If a work is "too hard"/unclear to you, your fault, authors's fault, or both?
2. I argued you should read such works twice, he said bull--opinions?

my favorite that i have been able to make myself is a fuzzy screwdriver or fuzzy screw- (peach schnapps, vodka, and orange juice combining the spirits (no pun intended) of a fuzzy navel and a screwdriver)
I like caipirinha, a sugar cane rum drink from Brazil.

StP Fleet NC in Builds 1901
When would it make sense to build Fleet StP 1901 instead of an army there? Isn't the army there much more flexible and useful? My point is that Russia cannot hope to mount a full offensive on England this early - and certainly not a naval one, so isn't his best hope in the North to mount a flexible defense while spooking Germany into helping him? Even when he succeeds in doing so, wouldn't Germany play the major naval part with your original fleet supporting from the Norwegian?

Iran-U.S. Relations
The Iranian government won't provoke the US into war because Iran would not win. Iran's nuclear ambitions result from a regional struggle with Saudi Arabia and having a weapon would increase local prestige/power; Iranian possession of a weapon is certainly not a threat to the US, and is less of a threat than to the US than Pakistan's weapons are.

NFL Week 5 Pick 'Em
Cocnkey topped the field of WebDip NFL Experts--sure, we're experts, right?--with 14 games picked correctly...congrats! (Full standings inside!)
But its a new week! The Jets and Pats enter a game neither can afford to lose with the upstart Bills at 3-1! Buffalo can drop Philly's Dream Team to 1-4 with a win! Oakland, Houston, Tampa, and San Fran all play as upstarts trying to gain standing! GB@ATL in the nightcap, and DET@CHI on Monday Night! Week 5...PICK 'EM!

Player collusion in anonymous, nil message games.
Do people think that it actually happens much, in games with no messaging at all, that two players decide before the game to help each other. I'm not complaining, or accusing, I just wanted to know what people's thoughts are about this. I have only come across one game where I suspected that the two players were in cahoots from before the game started, but whether or not it happened, the actions of two players kind of ruined the game.
