Re: I have health insurance now!

One regular "extra" bit of health cover I do pay is about $Aus 180 per year to the St John's Ambulance Service, which gets both myself and the Fire Breathing MemSahib "full ambulance" cover including Air Ambulance flights.

Re: I have health insurance now!

Health care services are one of the reasons I am damn glad to be an Australian. Our public health care services might not be perfect, but I support the policy principle of having a decent taxpayer funded public health system and therefore don't engage in excessive tax minimisation & pay my taxes.. E...

Re: Civil Disorder..players in a game should get the option of switching from their country to one that has no player

Today's joinable games..60 on 6 pages ??? Except there's only two games on half a page. "Fled in fear " ??? I think Capt Brad is watching too much TV and is possibly non compliant with his "meds". They're only games Capt dopey. If I choose to shun a game it's car more likely to be an expression of d...

Re: Civil Disorder..players in a game should get the option of switching from their country to one that has no player

What about the joinable games joke ? I definitely think there should be a points buy in unless the game is unranked. Joinable games..I look, it tells me there are fifty odd games ( 57 I think today ) on six pages..but the reality is there are only three games, two only with the spectate option, and ...

Re: US Government Shutdown

Don't worry Jeff, Trump is not a "properly functioning" POTUS irrespective of whether this short term funding bill gets through or not. I watched a few US PBS TV news programs, and Trump's Twitter "jibber~jabber" demonstrated his ignorance with one example being his getting completely wrong the deta...

Civil Disorder..players in a game should get the option of switching from their country to one that has no player

I'm suggesting that players already in a game should have the choice of switching to a country that has no player because it's gone into Civil Disorder, or the mods remove a player. Other players outside the game get to join for free now, no extra points going in to the pot. Why shouldn't players al...

Re: I Regret I will have too retire form webdip.

Hang on, who says they are leaving ? Jmo or Smokey Gem ? If Smokey Gem has the illusion that he'll be busy with the latest X Witcher & 111-Box gizmos he's apparently aquired, I recall his multudinous offspring & predict that they will soon interfere with that caper.

Re: Oprah For Prez bitches

There's been speculation for at least a decade about Oprah running for the Presidency. This current frenzied interest is a product of the news/commentary/multi platform media & the "chattering class" having an insatiable demand for "things to broadcast & discuss" ..and Trump's performance as Preside...

Re: School of War - Fall 2017

Big thanks all ( with perhaps one exception ) who participated in this Skool of War game and forum discussion. The player and their mentor with Italy deserve credit. Italy is perceived by many as a most difficult country to play. The "exceptional?" Kansas Boyd with England took the game into unusual...

Possible option of Diplomacy games with not "enough" players still starting & being played

Games are cancelled when not enough players join. What if there were an optional alternative ? With Classic Diplomacy there are ways to play with less than seven players, eg with six players Italy was nuetral (no player). There were other ways to play with (I think) three, four and five players. I w...

Re: Does Chicken Really taste like anything

Well there is that old joke about licking something that smells like fish then finding that it tastes like chicken. But I don't think I should be any more specific. I'm sure there is an equivalent joke (or series of jokes) about something that looks like a pork sausage...

Re: Do we all now have the same webdip birthday?

Happy birthday & Happy New Year Maniac. Maybe, just like Skool of War, we need a Skool for Almighty Mods & you could get a leg up into an Almighty Modship via that.
