Why does Germany go to Sweden in Fall '01 so often?
I can understand moving to Denmark in spring to keep the threat alive as diplomatic leverage, but by moving to Sweden right away, Germany angers Russia. Germany's usually going to be able to take Sweden away when he chooses anyway if Russia doesn't open strong to Scandinavia, so why are people so eager to make an enemy right off the bat?

Vaftrudner's statistics
Hello all!

kestas has been kind enough to give me a dump of the database with all personal details removed, but all game data is intact. This means that I can produce statistics of any kind, and you can request what you'd like to see here. Ask me for anything, and I'll see if I can make it happen!

So beer turns men into Conservatives...
This study (http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/beer-men-smarter-study-article-1.1059752) shows beer makes men smarter.

Therefore Conservatives are smarter.

Original 1958 Diplomacy is a trip.
Have any of you played on that map? It looks CRAZY. You can only build in one or two places. It allows for more than one unit to occupy the same space, and there are all those crazy extra provinces! WOW.

So is this a new one because you only want to play 25h? Because I was really only asking if you were open to another phase length in the other thread, I wasn't expecting you to drop the game. I'm fine with whatever and I'll join this one.
Sargmacher (0 D X)

Vaftrudner, there's no problem here. I got messages from other people saying they preferred 25 hour and so I created this game. And I googled to make sure it was a prime number, just for you :)

rokakoma (18688 D)
14 Apr 12 UTC
Yeah, but if I lose a lot of points, I have to go back to low bet games and build up my "wealth" again. It was enough doing once.

I'm currently playing with 2500 D, I'd love to see at least a few of them will come back, then I'll join the next 7k challange.

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? :)
