Clean wood energy
All this talk about clean coal. Why bother digging up energy when we have so much wood ABOVE ground! As a bonus, we get more farmland. Let's retrain coal miners to be lumberjacks!

Where is the Coke ad where...
I want to see a Coke ad where a Kendall Jenner look-a-like tries to stop a riot by presenting a can of Pepsi. After a dramatic pause in the melee, both sides ask her, "You got Coke?" [Then they resume fighting].

1901 Country Assignments
Does anybody else constantly get assigned the same country or countries? I've entered into maybe 15 games and every time but one, have been assigned either England, Germany, or Russia.

(Note: this is not a complaint--I'll never bemoan a free game of Diplomacy!!! Just curious :-)

Game Start Date - any way to know?
I know you can see the date a game finished, but is there a way to look and see when it started? I am curious to see how long a game took to finish in real time.

I looked for this for a while, so I'm the dunce if someone immediately points this out...

Accidentally hit Clean a few days ago. Cancelled it because there were things in the oven. Haven't been able to open it since. Have had it unplugged for 24 hours, hoping the electromagnet that allegedly locks it loses strength soon. Will update as warranted.

The IRS employs regressive taxation for independent contractors and the self-employed
I paid my taxes in the States the other day like a good citizen. And I'm pissed. Is it actually true that the States has regressive taxation for people categorized as self-employed/independent contractors?
Annual profit $0–$433.12: 0% tax rate
Annual profit $433.13–$128,316: 14.12955% tax rate (including on $433.12)
Annual profit $128,317–: 2.67815% tax rate (including on $128,316) + $14,694

* Income tax (with half the above tax as a deductible) is added on top of these figures

as much as i have problems with the progressive tax rate, i have even more with the regressive tax rate. this isn't even an all-sweeping what you get out is what you put in, so therefore what you put in should change as our constant output is constant... it's idiocy.

any true conservative and liberal should be against this. the corruption in this country annoys me

in theory i guess i could see this as an incentive for people to produce more, to lower their tax bracket. still, up to 128,000$ is exceedingly high

This is especially unfair for low-income workers who were expecting a W-2 in the mail and instead got a 1099-MISC. Instead of paying little to nothing in taxes, they have to pay 14.12955% of their profit, easily over $1,000. Plus they have to take the time to calculate all business expenses they incurred over the last year for filling out a Schedule C form when they weren't keeping track because they thought their employer – you know – considered them to be an employee.

@Hauta, ehat is a sovereign citizen?

Is that like the guy who claims it is legal to drive without a license, because the interstate commerce rule prohibits the states from regulating certain things. So he can't get driving fines for speeding and such, or lose his non-existance license??

(I believe he won in court)
Hauta (1212 D)
Fri 21 Apr UTC
Yes. Prior to passage of the 16th amendment, there was a question whether the federal govt could tax people's income. Sovereign citizens refuse to pay fed income taxes because they ignore the 16th amendment.

I was self employed and had to file a schedule SE every year for 11 years. Yes, it's completely true. Welcome to the Land of the Free. The taxes were so brutal even though I was making a poverty-level income that I had to break down and get a W-2 job a couple years back. Even though I'm no longer filing a schedule SE, I'm still paying half of that tax (my employer now pays the other half). It's still infuriating to know I'm paying massive amounts into these programs I know I'll never live long enough to see a dime from.

"This is especially unfair for low-income workers who were expecting a W-2 in the mail and instead got a 1099-MISC"

Depending on the nature of the work you do and your relationship with your employer, this may be illegal. Employers often do this to sleaze their way out of paying payroll taxes and stick their employees with them. If you can afford it, you may want to consider talking to a labor law lawyer.

It looks like you are referring to Social Security tax (12.4% for self-employed - for employees, half is paid by the employer and half is paid by the employee) and Medicare (2.9% for self-employed - again 50/50 split for employees/employer). Yes, it is insane. It is only setup this way because, unlike in other countries that provide a pension, people believe that Social Security is not welfare (it is). Thus there is an income limit for the tax as the benefit is supposed to be proportional to the tax you pay.

Two players from one IP?
Is it allowed to have two players playing from the same household - in different games? I know they cannot join games together, and that is fine with me, but can two players from the same household play different games?
