WebDiplomacy and The Final Crusade? (Game Proposal/Invite)
I think it's safe to say one of our most discussed/popular/maddening discussion topics here on the threads has been religion--one vs. another, atheism vs. theism, discrepancies between definitions of those identities (see: SC and I having a near-Jewish Civil War) so...anyone up for a game? Represent your denomination/branch of agnosticism/branch of atheism, we'll chat...have some wine...last players standing "win" The Last Crusade...? ;)

What's the story on Fag-Naur?
Did he give any reason for his latest return? I'm curious.

I just got my Suzuki GS850 up and running (it's almost as old as I am), and am going for a ride today! Anybody else got a bike and glad to see some nice weather?
Since I duffed up my hip some years ago in an accident I quiet literally can't get my leg high enough to get onto a proper motorbike (there are directions my leg just wont go - I can't bowl or play squash any more either). Sadly this means I'm currently reduced to riding a Piaggio 250 step-through scooter (hangs head in shame).

My hip's still improving though, so with luck, I'll be back on a proper bike again this summer.

Hey 250 is freaking massive for a scooter though.

Not anymore... three wrecks, barely survived the last. (Despite having narcolepsy and not knowing it, none of them were my fault.)

Deer tackled me on the Blue Ridge Parkway, then your typical stopped rear end. Last one was a woman in a giant ass Ford truck on I-77 bolting into my lane on top of me, went under the chassis, thank God it was light traffic. (Talking on her mobile of course.)

A year later my brother bought a crotch rocket... I damn near strangled him. (And then in eight months he tore his leg to the bone).

Fuck motorcycles and fuck bad drivers. It's an amazing feeling, but there are plenty better ones that won't kill you so easily.
=( Sorry to be that guy, but with plenty of reason.

@Geo - you rear ended someone else who was stopped but claim it wasn't your fault? I find that hard to believe. Hitting something that isn't moving is *always* the fault of the person moving. How could it be otherwise?

I used to ride a little Honda Roadster, the predecessor to the Nighthawk. I loved it. But then I got married and started a family and I could not justify risking my life over it.
@YellowJacket:Hey 250 is freaking massive for a scooter though.
I weigh 20 stone (280 lbs) so I need something with a freaking massive engine.

I owned a Honda Spree in 1989...badass ride, that, I tell ya! If It did 10 mph I tell you it could do 27! Get a guy across campus in a flash...mobs of girls with whiplash from snappin' their heads to see who that was....Ahhhh, yes....
Draugnar (25 D X)

"typical stopped rear end" isn't obvious to a non-biker. :-) I didn't know who rear ended who. That must have hurt, though.

Here is an interesting non-two wheeled accident tale... In my years of drivign my Corvette, I only ever had one accident. Some guy pulled up too far at a red light, put his ugly ass truck in reverse and destroyed my front facia even pushing the car backwards a bit. He didn't want to call the cops but I said "uh, no way dude". When the cop got there, he tried to claim I rear-ended him. I showed the cops the skid marks on all four tires moving backwards and the cop cited him not only for the accident but for lying to a police officer. Lucky for him, he didn't damagae my tranny or read end with the push backward, but I made him put four new Goodyear F1s on it as well as the front fascia repairs. He was uninsured, so my insurance company did it and then they sued him. I wonder if he ever paid them back or not?
Draugnar (25 D X)
02 Apr 12 UTC
Oh, and the new tires were because he flatspotted my current ones. and when you go through a set of tires every year at more than a grand per set, yeah, you want them replaced.

I owned 2004 Honda CB400 Super Four Spec III Hyper VTEC for two seasons until 2009 when I have slipped on nothing on the empty road at 100 kmh and broken my shoulder in a very bad way.

In 2008, more US marines were killed on the motorcycles they bought right after their tour than the number of US marines that were killed in combat.

As a former rider, I know I'm lucky to be alive and there's nothing I could have done to decrease my dependence on that luck. Driving is pretty much the most dangerous thing a person can do. Riding is just asking for it.

Player kicked out?
Looks like a player in our game got kicked out and someone took their place. The game is here: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=84494 The player in question is India, who was eighnjel or something like that, and is now timgard. India didn't log in all weekend but Argentina has never logged in and has not been kicked out. Is there any way to reverse this? Why did it happen? How do we replace Argentina?

How about I mod the forum. Any hate, trolling, etc... I see I silence. If the op posts it again because I silenced the thread, I ban. Maybe then you guys will appreciate the freedom and stop trolling and crapping up the forum. Thoughts?

In Defense of mapleleaf, krellin, and All the Rest...
We've created them.
They have as much right to speak their mind and spew as much vitriol as I spew Shakespeare...the same way we've made me into the seeming embodiment of the long-winded pseudo-intellectual Ivory Tower elitist, we've created these trolls, too...you pay them heed, and you lend credence to their creed. Respond, mute them, ignore them...but they have their right to speak, too...

Mod-a-Day Program
After listening to your suggestions about self-moderation, we've decided to try something new. Basically, we will give a user with a reasonable record mod privileges for one day to help keep order in the forum. We hope this will prevent any one person from going crazy with power, as it will only be for 24 hours. If you're interested, please post here.

Azawad
Just curious if anyone here has any thought on the situation in northern Mali/Azawad. It seems extremely unlikely to me that 2,000 ECOWAS troops are going to be able to fight the Tuaregs unless the MNLA splits, and I haven't really heard anything indicating that that's going to happen. At the same time, all of this seems to be happening kind of quickly. Are they prepared to set up a government?

Have you ever made a horrible decision and not realized it until after you've done it?
Well I have. In fact, there are only two things in this life that I've done that were incredibly stupid. The first is not putting oil in my vehicle until the engine blew when I was a kid. The second was un-muting Krellin. Not sure why this guy hasn't been banned yet but, like the damage to my motor, ability to not hate idiots will never be fixed again.
