Identification Methods
For a story I'm writing, I need an adult who has lost his memory to not be easily identifiable. How do I make this feasible?
For instance, I expect the Dutch government to have the fingerprints of Dutch citizens. Do legal immigrants or people with a refugee status have their fingerprints taken as well? Would illegal immigrants or tourists from countries that don't take fingerprints make for a solid storyline? Are there other options?

Known World 901 - Playable?
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm fairly new around here. I'm looking through the variant maps, and I see one that looks like a lot of fun, the Known World 901 map. On the Variants page, it lists it as active, but when I go to create a new game I don't see it as an option to select.

An open discussion about elaborate ways to restore reliability rating
I was thinking how there are members on this site who ruined their Reliability early and can never restore it to the 90th %tile. What if we did a series of experiments on these people. Hook them up to machines. Or perhaps put them in a room full of rats and see if they survive. The goal being we develop a way that someone could go from a 13% RR to a mighty 78%

Whether or not I agree with Kansas, the more he says “facts and stuff” the more I want to make him the first player I’ve ever muted.
Kansas, I don't see how that's relevant to the fact the OP stated. In general, it is easier for someone to buy a gun than a puppy. That's pretty much a fact
KansasBoyd (25 D X)
07 Nov 17 UTC
It’s not a fact though.

I had friends a couple weeks ago whose dog had puppies. They were begging us to take a puppy.

That would have been a heck of a lot easier than going to Canelas and buying a gun.

You know, facts and stuff.

The shame on Kansas is pretty exclusively because of how he carries himself as the defender of all fact. He’s the conservative variant of the pompous elitist liberal stereotype.
MajorMitchell (991 D)

Well if he's the pompous elitist Conservative stereotype, or not, he appears to fervently believe that must know more about gun control laws than anyone who dares to disagree with him,
What-if there was a successful Conservative politician who was a National leader for a decade..like that John Howard chappy, who.implemented National gun law reforms in Australia and two decades later they are demonstrably very effective ... ( facts not KB's stuff ) Would that example of a Conservative National leader implementing gun control laws that work well sort of knock into a cocked hat the proposition that "gun control laws don't work" ? An example that has a unique irritation in that Menzies and Howard are regarded as the greatest two Conservative Prime Ministers of Australia.
KB is certainly gaining a singular reputation here at WebDiplomacy
CAPT Brad (2521 D (B))

the pompous elitist liberal is not a stereotype, it's a ubiquitous description of people telling you what to do who don't do it themselves. Like members of the California state (democrat controlled) legislature. They drive taxpayer funded gas guzzling SUV's and sexually harass their staff and lobbyists .
