So Help Me God...Naw--So Help Me WebDip Physicists, What's Higgs-Boson About?
Leaving that "God Particle" title alone--and if anyone brings God into THIS thread...shame on you, we have a debate coming up, for once, let's have a discussion sans the rhetoric, eh?--can any of our brilliant scientists here explain this? I've heard of it, and apparently it's important, but...what's it all mean, this particle...why would it hep give proof of...things? (Note my very technical jargon there.) ;)
And for that money you can do what I do and get the corrupt Mod (say no more) to change what Tourney teams you get, as you can see it made all the difference for me in the last Tourney ...... where do I sign ?
Zmaj raised an interesting point. We can slander and insult and wrestle and mock politics and religion without end, but as soon as someone starts in on personal histories and former cheating cases, it becomes very hush hush and people start tiptoeing around. Not that I disagree necessarily, but what makes personal history and former cheating cases et al. more taboo than politics and religion, the latter of which is supposedly deeply personal?
SOUTH KOREA JOINS JAPAN AS A NATION THAT WILL HUNT & KILL WHALES
South Korea announces it will resume "scientific whaling" Boycott all South Korean products and services and let the "shopkeepers" know it's Whale Hunting by South Korea that has driven your decision. and what a "contradiction in terms" -- "scientific whaling" is a propoganda phrase
A multi or three seems to have got caught out in a game I was playing - but the actions dont seem to match the notes in-game. Have mailed the mod account - I see that one of the caught/accused is still playing?
The obvious way to do a category-specific Ghost-Rating is to restrict the games you use in the rating to that category, unless I'm very much mistaken, that is how it is currently done. This does not necessarily give the best outcome, or even a better outcome than do the regular ratings.
I wasn't going to do this but I was convinced to so here goes.
Today I donated stem cells from my bone marrow to a patient with leukemia in need of a transplant. The whole process was very easy for me and the registry needs as many donors as they can get - it relies on specific genetic matching. www.bethematch.org (more details and a picture inside)
I Saw The Greatest Posts of My Generation...Destroyed by Obi's Poetry Corner!
Alright, you cool daddy-o's and wanna-be-Byrons... Post your poetry below so we can all snap our fingers in derision, er, delight! (My poetry's bad, but then, I can always just do what my professors do--become a bitter professor and force my students to by my poetry and write essays about how awesome my awful, trite, piece of shit work is...but maybe we have an Eliot or Plath in our midst?)
I would like to challenge the 34* eligible players on the site who have more than 3000 to a gunboat game with a buy-in of 3043 . This is my current total points and as such this game would take me "all-in". Does anyone want to see my bet? This would also be the biggest pot of any game played in the history of Web Diplomacy. WTA, 48 hour phase, Anon, Classic Gunboat - whose game?
