I am incredibly torn on this issue.

I believe that means I get 18 armies. So here we go. Please deploy as follows:

1 on Oklahoma
4 on Maryland
13 on Tennessee

Attack Oklahoma to Arkansas, do or die. Attack Maryland to Delaware, do or die. If any of these fail, stop and await further orders. If not, proceed.

Attack Tennessee to Virginia to West Virginia to Kentucky to Indiana to Illinois to Missouri to Iowa to Nebraska to Wyoming, do or die. If I get that far, I want the maximum number of troops in Wyoming. Either way, stop and await further orders.

Whatever I do, it’s going to be tough. Might as well see if I can make something from nothing!

Does obliterating two distinct regions with years of culture and accomplishments not qualify as "scribbling on the Risk board"...?

Well, nothing of the sort would be needed, assuming one hemisphere of the ideological spectrum wouldn't hole themselves up in two of the other regions for years on end, leading to persistent issues for the regional dynamic. Maybe one day, that hemisphere will champion ideas of its own that'll allow it win outside of its fiefdoms, instead of cowering safely in 40% of the country!

I know you're unfamiliar with this principle, but we actually don't tell our members to move somewhere based on political expediency.

Oh, I thought we were still talking about Risk. Because everyone knows the best strategy is North America—South America—Africa.

Starting a land war in Asia would be a better comparison.

So it's just a big waste of time, then? Tongue

One tiny, obscure tidbit from a giant piece of legislation is hardly an example of significant disconnect between the Federalist Party and the People. I'd rather be in our position than yours, because the country basically just rejected your entire worldview.

That's a novel interpretation of these results, to say the least, and an extraordinary amount of weight to place on an Atlasian poll in any case. What happens in the Senate is far more important. Wake me up when your party begins to get substantive bills passed.

What I take from that is basically that TNF is the entire Labor Party (which I don't reject; it's a convenient interpretation for us, too). The thing is, his legislative victories don't reflect a systematic or institutional "win" for the Labor establishment; y'all just lucked out with an extremely productive member.

Unless you think stingray conservation and department renaming are pressing issues?

Well, it looks like the country just rejected a lot of Labor proposals.

I believe so, or else I would've been playing this game a hell of a lot differently. Tongue

113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pornhub: The South watches proportionately more gay porn than anywhere else on: March 15, 2014, 01:24:23 am
Well, gay people face more barriers in places like the South and are probably more likely to stay in the closet. I would assume that a larger number of gays elsewhere don't "need" porn because it's easier to get the real thing.

None. Never will, either. No cheap design is worth living with forever.

I know it's extremely unlikely, but I'm sort of worried we will be seeing this plane again in a not-so-nice way.

Oh please Hagrid, like polls 3 years out mean anything.

Are you really going to try and convince me that the Republican Party is not in bad shape?

My argument is this: Hillary isn't particularly strong; we're just particularly weak. Do you honestly believe Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or Paul Ryan can even hold a candle to her? Not just politically, but in terms of gravitas and national stature. I'll allow myself to take Romney out of the equation, but just on the individuals alone, there's no way Rand Paul beats Hillary Clinton. Save these words and hold me to them if you really want to.

Please deploy as follows...

2 in Tennessee
1 in Texas

Please attack Texas to Arkansas to Mississippi, moving the maximum number of troops each time. If anything along this line of attack fails, stop and await further orders. If it's successful, attack Alabama from Tennessee. I want you rolling with the highest number of dice possible, but if I win, I want you to move the lowest number of armies possible into Alabama.

Refortify by moving four armies from North Carolina to Tennessee. End turn.

Thanks!

I think the more interesting discussion is this:

If you were a North Korean and legitimately had the choice between voting "yes" or "no," how would you vote? It seems like citizens do have a choice on their ballot... it's just reported that they all voted yes.

Would you have the balls to vote "no?" I probably wouldn't.

Hmm. I don't know if he'd still be my top choice in the primaries (although maybe he'd have to be just by default), but I could likely support him in the general.
