Left my oven on all night
Set at 415 after cooking a pizza. I forgot to shut it off. It was on nearly 20 hours. I feel lucky I didnt burn my house down.

NHL sucks
I honestly challenge anyone who obviously knows nothing about hockey to keep high morale when the refs are literally maliciously trying to throw the game. I've never seen worse reffing in a series, and anyone who doesn't realize these are humans that actually get effected when the ref delibrately tries to blow a series against your team, should realize that it makes your team feel like they are skating though glue.

How can I become a crappier person
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.

Win Or Bust
Draws are for sissies. Who would like to join me in a game where, by agreement of all participants, no "Draw" votes shall be permitted?

I think it'll be fun.

I probably won't join, but what happens if you have a stalemate line? Everyone loses if no SC changes hand for 2 year?

Confused how Jamiet has no idea what lusthog is
Jamiet99uk (64 D (B))
Tue 18 Apr UTC
I saw a post about it once but I've never played. Is it just "you can't vote draw" or is there more than that?
VashtaNeurotic (1044 D)
Tue 18 Apr UTC
Lusthog is you can't vote draw...unless a stalemate line has been held for at least a year. Avoid the, waiting for someone to CD strategy, which will happen under your rule set
Lusthog is also no-press, isn't it?
Gen. Lee (7452 D (B))
Tue 18 Apr UTC
That's why he wants to play lustfrog
Gen. Lee (7452 D (B))
Tue 18 Apr UTC
But if it's not draw after 2 years stalemate then we should put a year time limit on it. 1925 or something.
Jamiet99uk (64 D (B))
Tue 18 Apr UTC
I would propose that voting draw is acceptable *only* after two complete years in which both of the following are true:

1. No SCs change hands.
2. There are no retreats.
3. There are no builds.

How's that?

I'm very tempted to do this. Fits my play-style and cuts out a lot of the problems with WTA scoring. A bit scared of being in another game that reaches the 21st Century, though.

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?

Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?

Coup in North Korea
I was trying to think why Trump would engage in such brinksmanship with North Korea. Sure, it could be just more inexperience, etc, but then I was thinking that maybe the goal is to scare the generals there so much that someone bumps off the Great Leader. Then I started thinking, that's probably why he rubbed out his half-brother recently.
