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.

Why this? Nothing is actually changing and his remarks, as all his remarks seem to be, have been 'clarified'. LGBT people are still in the eyes of the church guilty of a 'moral evil'.

Actually, I think you're bit off here. The Church believes LGBT people are probably guilty of a moral evil in God's eyes, but it is also slowly coming to the conclusion that it is not the Church's place to judge. I think that is a marked and clear improvement. It's that type of thinking that could eventually make homosexuality a non-issue in the Church and realign the institution's focus down a path that indiscriminately offers its love to everyone.

116  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS3: Canadian Province Annexation Act [Final Vote] on: March 09, 2014, 11:27:18 pm
Ah. I don't know if I'm welcome to give my two cents here, but I might as well. Tongue

I'm not comfortable with a bill that professes to annex Canada's sovereign territory. The common market legislation passed under President Marokai does not transfer Canadian land or citizens to the government of Atlasia; it provides stronger representation to Atlasians living in Canada. The current language of this bill makes it sound like the IDS is quite literally taking over the Canadian maritime provinces. I'm not necessarily opposed, but given that the Atlasian government has not sanctioned this type of action, I'd argue that this regional government is out of line to take foreign policy actions on its own, without the consent of the federal government, with this bill.

I know what the intentions behind the bill are, and I don't mean to hold things up over a logistical dispute... but the way we're doing it here doesn't sit well with me. Maybe my interpretation of the Atlasia-Canada common market is off, but I don't think the Imperial Dominion of the South should inadvertently cause war by annexing Canadian provinces if this is not an arrangement the Atlasian and Canadian governments have condoned.
117  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: where would you rather eat? on: March 09, 2014, 04:15:06 pm
Option 1 (Italian)

Cracker Barrel (not a pretentious hipster who thinks he's above food with umph!)

The Italian restaurants that me and my family dine at are usually little hole in the wall family run joints that have mold oozing out of the walls. Far from pretentious, and the food certainly has umph!. Wink

My comment was more of a counterbalance to OP's insinuation that it was "uncivilized" to go to Cracker Barrel. I'm kind of tired of the overgeneralized hate for the South.
118  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: HuffPo hates the South (with maps) on: March 09, 2014, 04:02:07 pm
Yet we keep electing the same right-wing governments we've been electing since Reconstruction ended. We do it to ourselves. Very frustrating.

I doubt that's the cause. My part of the country is an underdeveloped craphole with many of the same problems as the South (except race). We keep electing governments significantly to the left of the Democrats... yet somehow, we're still an underdeveloped craphole.

If you're saying that Mississippi is as well off as Nova Scotia, all I can say is thanks.  I really wish that were true.

Go to Cape Breton.

Am I the only one who thinks that tmth is in a really good position, provided that he plays his cards right?
Wait, what? lol

I may not be in as bad of shape as BK or MB, but I don't see myself in a better position than Hagrid (still) or Vosem.

Maybe it's too early to editorialize, but I do think the game is Vosem's to lose now. I took a gamble going for the South for a few reasons. First, I didn't want to go on a big rampage elsewhere and spread my armies thin. Second, I really thought Franzl would want to go for a bonus of his own either in the northwest or with his recently-lost states, rather than attack me. I think now the two of us will be preoccupied by a mutually-destructive back-and-forth that will allow Vosem to sweep in through the rest of the rust belt. We'll see. Maybe I shouldn't post this stuff in public, but obviously I am a bit miffed at the situation. Tongue

Well, this thread turned into exactly what one would expect.

Well, congratulations, Vosem. Tongue

With the registrar general officially accepting registrants in Canada, I believe it's time for this party  to properly recognize the contributions of Atlasians living in Canada by holding our convention in Calgary, Alberta, a huge conservative stronghold to our north.
124  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination X: Round 3 (Hagrid) on: March 07, 2014, 05:49:41 pm
Please deploy as follows:

2 on Kansas
6 on Arkansas

Attack Kansas to Oklahoma, do or die. Once won, please move the maximum number of troops into Oklahoma. Next, attack Arkansas to Texas. Once won, keep two armies in Arkansas and put the rest in Texas (keeping two armies in Arkansas might affect dice rolls, but hopefully my forces won’t deplete enough for it to be a situation we have to deal with Tongue).

Fortify by moving the maximum number from Mississippi to Arkansas.

We’ll see how it goes. I guess there are other options, but I don’t really see how it benefits me to go on a wild goose chase and leave my holdings undefended…
125  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination X: Round 3 (Hagrid) on: March 07, 2014, 09:58:33 am
But no pressure. Wink

I'm in class now. I'll take a closer look at things later in the afternoon.
