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 don't have tips Gobble, but I can tell you that whenever I don't play Germany, it is the country that I most expect to be reliable in the sense that it doesn't stab me and communicates intelligently.
sealion and stay friendly to the french....if you work with england against france. you basically have your back exposed when you start moving south...if you sealion, keep a fleet in the north to keep yourself protected against french attack, always leave a troop in munich and berlin if possible. make good relations with russia.
Never stab austria until france gets into italy, negotiate with russia to take swe and he takes norway...two northern russian fleets or any combination adds extra *interest* to work with france and stab...ALWAYS convince turkey to attack russia...that way he won't be a threat...
If turkey and russia jugger...form a WT. England north, german middle and french south...but make sure your relationship is strong with england or france....keep a few northern units to deter england from attacking....with france, keep pressure on england as well...unless of course you make a few good DMZ's
Germany used to be my weakest country, it's now one of my strongest.... :)
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?
