...and why on earth did I leave the library at 5:30 am? I know exactly what I produced by the end of that time, but it's literally been 12 hours since I left class... how did I manage to spend that much time doing what I did, in the library?

I'm confused. Did she want them to pledge allegiance to the United States or to Israel?

Why am I still in the library at 10:30 on a Thursday? And I've spent most of my time doing clerical work as opposed to anything substantive...

Okay guys, can we stop being absurd for a moment and be serious? What exactly are you accusing Tmth of? I know that Tmth is a very real person who very much exists- people (although not me) have met him so he obviously cannot be Mercado. Unless there's something I don't know here. Please explain.

Otherwise I don't know what this is; it certainly isn't funny, so I'm at a complete loss.

i think they're saying he was aware of napoleon's identity and intentionally kept it a secret? not sure

Well then let's be fair about this, and when I say fair I really mean fair- for the malefactor in the following case shall be myself. In a now deleted thread that can be seen through Google Cache, Oakvale made the following post:

So, yeah, Simfan has made some kind of strawman sock with whom to debate. That's interesting.

Curiously enough, I was eventually banned (and then, of course, unbanned) for creating two sock accounts, one of which was the one Oakvale was referring to and thus correctly identified. Now as Al posted on that very same page, it is all but certain that he saw oakvale's post. Why did Al not immediately contact the relevant authorities? Was Al engaging in "collusion and conspiracy" with yours truly? Should Al also be arrested and tried for treason, if we are to apply his logic to his own case? Oakvale? Who else was made aware of this yet did not take action until months afterward?

And before anyone asks what I'm getting myself into, keep in mind I've already served my time!

Okay guys, we had a good election last time around, let's have another one!
6  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Governor Varavour on: January 29, 2015, 06:40:25 pm
The first moment I thought "have we been doing it wrong all the time?" Tongue
Anyway, the Council Election there is, and great to see we already have two declared candidates! Who knows, maybe we'll have a competitive election this time, as well?

Considering we had, what, six candidates last time around, I hope we can have an equally competitive and exciting election again this time, and further establish the positive pattern of active government and an active region that has been my and pretty much everyone else's hope and goal for the Pacific.

However, I think it is imperative that we establish the willingness and ability of candidates to remain fully active throughout the full length of their term. We've done much to improve activity but absentee MLCs remain a recurring problem and quite seriously affect the process of governance in our region. Considering there are only 3 members of the Legislative Council, for one to be missing effectively results in a shutdown of the legislative process. (Paleobrazilian, are you reading this?)

Since we are actually three weeks out from the election as of today, I'd like to see more candidates declare soon, and hopefully we could set up a debate between them so that... well, so that we get all the good things that one gets from a debate which I doubt I need to explain to you-- but most importantly so that they can be asked about their ability to serve consistently and actively.

Yes, I knew something was amiss. I was baffeled to see that Flo had posted we had an gubernatorial election coming up, which I hadn't remembered being there, but I suppose I took it for granted since we have so many elections as is. No wonder I "just realised" it, it was never the case.

Very well. We still have Legislative Council elections coming up, though!
9  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Office of Türkisblau - Endorsement of Potus/Maxwell on: January 29, 2015, 01:11:46 pm
I want to now take the opportunity to endorse Turkisblau for re-election to the Legislative Council. He has done a fine job as speaker and quite a fair amount of heavy lifting, not to mention taking me to task, when necessary, and keeping us all accountable. I cannot express my support for the Speaker strongly enough and I exhort all Pacificans to give him another term!
10  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Intell for Pacific Council- The People's Party on: January 29, 2015, 01:04:06 pm
Endorsed, although I hope there are no surprises. I am elated to see fresh blood although it must be the right kind. Best of luck!

I hope to propose some laws that will help support our region's families in the coming days.

And I also would like to add that, in conformance with the Patriation of the Pacific Recovery Act 2014, any sort of armed movement will be rigourously regulated and expected to fully comply with the laws of this region. As all of us normally are.

Furthermore elections are coming up, I encourage all those considering running for the Legislative Council to do so, and soon! I've also just realised that this position, unlike any other gubernatorial office in the country, has a three rather than a four month term...

I mean, Napoleon was awful, no?

Yes he was. But some people on this forum will inexplicably like people no matter how awful they are. It gets stunning sometimes.
It all comes down to friendliness...which even hamilton is better at than you, Gustaf. 

Uh, that's utterly false.

This explains his behavior as President, actually. It really was just trolling.

Just wondering this.  I remember myself and all my Asian suburban friends getting slapped for our infelicities through age 10.  Thinking back, it truly does seem to be a very Asian and suburban thing.

Oh no, it's something that happens to me too. Perfectly normal. Maybe the fact white people don't get hit explains certain things.

So you all want him coming back as someone else, messaging you and making friends with you without knowing who you're talking to at the time? Kinky. No thanks for me - I'd rather know exactly who I'm talking to on here.

This is the same reasoning people give for opposing gun laws, and it makes no sense here either.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: PA3: The Clarification of the Practise of Rights Amendment on: January 28, 2015, 11:36:41 pm
Can someone tell me Section 17 of Article IV... wait, wait. That should be Article VI, not Article IV. Could someone please introduce an amendment to fix that?

Anyway, Can someone tell me what Section 17 of Article VI of the Regional Constitution means? "The enumeration in this Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." It essentially says that there are "secret rights" not listed in the constitution that still exist. Now I'm well aware this is copied verbatim from the Federal Constitution but it doesn't make the clause any less nonsensical.

EDIT: Oh, you already fixed that. Thanks! Smiley
