High replacement bets
Hi
Somewhat new to this site. I've helped put as a replacement elsewhere and would not be against doing so here but I get turned off with what seems to me to an inappropiately high bet for terrible positions. I assume there are difficulties making this better. Thoughts?

Capitalism and D's
I like the connection. The richer (and better Diplomacy players) get richer, while the poorer (and worse Diplomacy players) get poorer. Maybe, after all, D's IS the best ranking system?

Retreat rules clarification
Can someone retreat to the spot from which you attacked them?
Example: Austrian A Vie attacks Italian A Tri (A Vie supported by A Bud). A Tri forced to retreat. Can they retreat into the now vacant Vie SC?

Turns out, world smartest people are Asians. Why would that be?
In one the numerous "political debate" threads haunting this forum, Fasces posted a list of countries by average IQ. The entire top 7 is Asian, and on 10 there is Mongolia (which is weird, because you never hear anything about Mongolia). Why do they score so well?

The game is for trolls and semi-trolls. It is anon and global chat so will be focused on humorously trolling on one another anonymously. Then in the end we find out who's whom.

But I believe. Either (a) Tebow is the son of God or (b) God has taken an active interest in the NFL

It could be both.
If Tebow is god, then what is the Broncos defense who are actually responsible for Denver's success

Its not about trying to rationally explain the Broncos' record. Its about appreciating what is one of the best sports storylines in a long time.

“Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!”
What do people get for all their hard work under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth never changes. The sun rises and the sun sets, then hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles. Rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows out again to the sea. Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.

History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.
4 Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
7 All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.
8 All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.
11 No one remembers the former generations,
and even those yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow them.
Storylines are created by the media. How is the focus not on the defense who allowed 10 D and forced a 3 and out after a onside kick recovery and got the ball back when a first down would have ended the game.
Frank (114 D)

The defense is great! Caleb Hanie is awful! Marion Barber lost the game not once, but twice!

Who cares? Take some joy in the story of Tim. How can you not love this story of the plucky underdog finding ways to win?
great story, yes and I enjoy it and laugh about it. But if this was any other person or team ther focus would be spread on a much broader front than just the Quarterback.

"But if this was any other person or team ther focus would be spread on a much broader front than just the Quarterback. "

Yeah.... definitely. This is the first football team that has focused on its quarterback in explaining its season.
its the first football team with a QB with the skills 2000 Kyle Boller who focused on the Quarterback

"Nothing under the sun is truly new. "
No one has ever posted those exact words in that exact pattern on this thread before. That poem is completely new to this thread. As long as there are people to find something new, it is new to us.

it is new for you, but it is certainly a few thousand years old. And you could have read it somewhere else. So nothing new about it. It is like saying the wheel is new because a new born baby never saw it before. It is new for him, but it isnt new at all.

My problem with Tebow is that he spends too much time thanking God and not enough time thanking his defense.
