I will be away all weekends from now on so I can't constantly ask for a 3 day pause. So I'm looking for a sitter. I'm in two games. one wta game with high pot (700+D), in which I'm almost defeated and a C1 summer league game (doing well there). Anyone interested?
Rumor mill speculates a forcible evacuation from the gulf coast. Normally I dismiss martial law rumors pretty quick, but given the toxicity of the water, beaches, and even air from texas to florida (some symptoms of corexit (sp) poisoning as far north as N carolina (unverified) I think this is a real possibility What do you think? http://beforeitsnews.com/story/78/024/Gulf_Coast_Evacuation_Scenario_Summer_Fall_2010_Martial_Law_Alert.html
The Tales Today That Will Be Classic Legends Tomorrow
We look into the past in the West and see a lot of heroes and stories and mythologies that still are important to us today. The Epic Of Gilgamesh. The Old Testament of Adam and Eve, David, Moses. The Iliad, Oddysey, and Aeneid. The Oedipus Cycle. The New Testament and The Story of Jesus. The Arthurian Legend. The Arabian Knights. Robin Hood. We have so many franchises and stories and sagas today- which ones will be/should be remembered and revered as classics in the centuries to come?
This Time On Philosophy Weekly: Science vs. Ethics: What's Wrong With
It's the tale as old as time, "scientific progress" vs. "what's right." On the one hand, we have stem cells and other such biological and engineering works that could potentially improve life for mankind drastically, cure diseases, make man stronger, more versatile...man can literally improve his design. But then you have the other side, and the powerful question, "Who are WE to play God and alter such things?" Should we be afraid of "playing God?" Is there a line? If so, what?
One of the main reasons why Republicans want to build a border fence is because of all the drugs illegal immigrants are bringing in, and when they do, they generally trample upon the land close to the border. (Continued)
All we read on these threads is some ancient philosophicla bullshti about this or that or the other thing. Fuck all that. You people constantly rehashing old arguments. None of us contributing new ideas with our asinine, pompous posts! FUCK THAT! Somebody tell me something NORMAL!
What the hell did you eat for dinner? And how's your dog doing, for God's sake????
....that I must leave the site for a still undetermined amount of time. This last week I began working long hours at a new job so now I have almost no time to log in WebDiplomacy. That being said, I need to drop from the leagues and also need someone to sit my account for the time being. It is only one game, a TMG Masters game.
Yup, I'll be next. School starts late September and I will almost certainly have to cut down my chronic live game playing. Wow it'll be like quitting smoking or something. Sorry to see you leave, Steve. Hope it works out. Come back for a live game every now and then in the weekend.
"Retirements never last as long as you think they will."
my high school teacher showed me this website a few years ago. I am not even the same person anymore. The only two things that are still the same in my life are my mother and phpdiplomacy. or "WEB"diplomacy to all the whipper snappers. I dont talk to any of the same people or do the same things or wear the same clothes or think the same things.
I couldnt get away from it if I tried. And honestly I think it's all you folks, I'm not even always in a game. and I dont even actually know if I like diplomacy. but I know I cant stop
I am a firm believer in hard determinism, and my beliefs in determinism (and cyclic universe theory) lead me to believe that god does not exist, not vice versa. I assume that there are quite a few people on this site that aren't determinists, so who is willing to argue with me?
One of my History teachers in middle school had our whole class play it. I think we were making two moves a week or so, and his plan was to actually grade us on how well we did. I was Germany and was kicking ass... until someone snuck into the classroom one day after school was out and knocked over all the pieces. Our teacher hadn't written down the positions so the game just ended. It was lame, but some friends and I started playing on our own.
