Oh, Cry Me A River (And then Have Jesus Walk On It Already...)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/14/christians-persecuted-archbishop-canterbury-carey Yeah, no, sorry--you don't get to pull the "Stop picking on me!" card when you're the dominant view in the West, have a billion-plus followers, and, oh yes, have kicked and killed and demonized and persecuted countless millions of Jews and Muslims and Atheists anyone ELSE who dared disagree with your opinion over the last 2000 years.
Favorite (Short) Poems? (And Perhaps We Can Put A Few Of Our Own?)
I think we did this a while back, where we posted different things we'd written...and I've definitely had a "Top ___ Works Ever" thread (or two or four or four thousand) before... So here they are combined--favorite short poems (ie, no Iliad/Paradise Lost/The Waste Land, good as they are, they're longer poems and in another category) and, for the brave...perhaps we can get a Poetry Corner going? :)
I want everyone to private message this guy as he was too rubbish to win when anyone else was playing so he didnt draw even though russia had helped nim all the way through (russia isnt me) he is the worst type of player and nobody shud play with him ever again.
So, that thread on Ubuntu made me want to try again on my laptop. I installed 11.10 and I have the same problem as before. On windows, my computer idles at 33-49degC. In Ubuntu, it idles around 82degC. What's with the 40degC increase? Thoughts?
Who would win in a gunboat between seven of yourself?
A fun little exercise that has been helping my play style recently was to learn what bias I have in game. So pull out your dip board and make what you think is the best gunboat opening for each power, then play each power to the best of your ability to win. Who wins? Who gets eliminated first?
There are countless super-long convoys, and every single one of them is done just to go "wow, look at this!" Honestly, I don't see the point. The best convoys are the navy/army switcheroo when the opponent isn't expecting it.
One of my first games. http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=17528#gamePanel. It was a short convoy, edi to london but I was really proud of it because I saw the attack coming and saved myself. Sprin 1904-autumn 1905.
