Re: 20 Questions - Game #22

I rather like it, to be honest. No harm in casting a wider net, as long as it's treated as a question and not a guess

Re: Southern Boarder

Was wondering if anyone was able to varify the following? I'm not particularly familiar with the Africa Facts Zone so it's entirely possible that it's a nonsense. If not, it's pretty grim viewing.

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Ora, what exactly is the point of that opinion piece? I can see why you want to put some distance between yourself and the ludicrous idea that adoption is worse than death, but I have no idea why you'd post such drivel in the first place.

Re: Southern Boarder

I confess I don't know enough about the history of the enclaves to make an informed comment. If there's a long established period of Africans who consider themselves Spanish living there for generations then it's hard to conclude that giving their home to another country, or moving them to the Spani...

Meanwhile at the other southern border wall that doesn't get anywhere near as much attention because its built by Europeans who are the enlightened liberal good guys.... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2022/6/24/hundreds-of-migrants-storm-border-fence-in-spains-melilla At lea...

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Pretty grim reading. It's hard to disagree with the reasoning behind it, but as problematic as Roe v Wade was it was nevertheless a sticking plaster that served a purpose. Without it the world becomes significantly worse for a lot of people. Still, this sort of radical policy shift is what you get w...

Re: 20 Questions - Round 19

Is it Robert the Bruce? As a Scot, I fully approve of this question! (but why Robert the Bruce???) He's my great great great (and so on and so forth) grandfather, and after discussions back in the early games that he's the chap I'd have picked if I hadn't already mentioned him I've become paranoid ...

Re: War, what is it good for?

As the war continues to rumble enthusiastically onwards, it is worth a look at how European public opinion stands regarding the conflict.

Re: Your worldview is cancer

For example to state that the shortage of almighty mods is due to the burdens of managing the bwave new forum with more decorum and nothing else is simplistic and innacurate in my opinion. The problem with this analysis is that I didn't state this. Not so much getting the wrong end of the stick, bu...

Re: Your worldview is cancer

It was less about being scared away, and more that the powers that be foolishly came to the bizarre conclusion that people who love a political board game set in the early 20th century don't have a natural interest in politics, and hid the political forum away. Starved of new blood it mostly died, a...

Maybe Robert the Bruce is a Well known character in the english history, but for example in Hungary It would be hard to find 10 people on the street knowing him. )(But on which street?

Re: 20 Questions - Round 12

A man is not dead while his name is still spoken, some have said, although for the purposes of 20 questions this is not particularly helpful.

Has this man had his works converted into TV and/or film?

Re: It's gay to walk fast

I've heard that lots of unreliable gays are known to regularly engage in breathing, clearly suggesting that gayness is an airborne affliction. A follow-up study on the issue discovered that gay men who have refrained from breathing for over a week week rarely express interest in sexual activity or d...

Re: It's gay to walk fast

What Fluminator appears to have been observing is that, when approaching a group of reliable gays, they invariably move with remarkable speed in the opposite direction. I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of this observation, but suggest perhaps that there is value in adding various control group...
