I hope John McCain does change is mind. It would send a big signal to the party establishment and possibly help get the ball rolling.

Well, it's over for now. But it'll be a different story in three years when the Taliban is back on the up-and-up.

About what I'd expect from someone with an Oxford education.

Is the game your life?

Well, I've never been moved enough to impersonate a legislator and vote on a phony abortion bill, so I'm gonna have to go with no...

Disagree. Not a critical issue. Question should be scrapped.

Well, windjammer also doesn't have an off switch, so that probably helps.

What gets me is that aren't Protestants supposed to believe in "faith, not works?"

Oh, you're allowed to. But if all they are is a gallon of nonsensical, dogmatic hatred, you should expect to feel the backlash of a public that is fortunately learning to be more progressive in its treatment of people who are different.

I'm really sad. My school placement is going well, but living with my parents away from everyone is so awful. My guyfriend got to stay in our university town and today he told me he had one of the best days ever. I'm happy for him, but... I feel weird not being a part of it. Sad It's hard... I miss him, but he's keeping busy enough to not miss me as much. I just want this next chunk of four weeks to be over.

The Iraq War is what all the casuals point to. I doubt most Americans even know what half the other things are.

Homosexuals, like all people, are certainly capable of going to Heaven if they repent and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Unrepentant sinners don't go to Heaven; and thus, an unrepentant homosexual will indeed go to Hell, just like how an unrepentant adulterer or unrepentant fornicator (to name two examples) will go to Hell.


What a sad world we have that it can create people like you. It just breaks my heart that someone with such obvious potential (I mean, you know how to spell at the very least) is so unable to exhibit real critical thinking, all because of the weight of a goddamn book. Best of luck out there.

I've been numb all day. I mean, it's basically a strike at the centre of our national consciousness. Very hard to stomach. I've been teaching all day without real updates. It's tough. My thoughts go out to you folks in Ottawa.

Got back from homecoming. Spent it with my guy. We were late for all our engagements because we were busy doing other stuff. Oh well!

Dubya, Clinton, Johnson.

The New Right is probably closest to me. If only because of foreign policy.

^Cool, are you hot? Tongue



Also, I just completed my first day of practicum in a grade 4/5 class! It was pretty nerve-wracking during the weeks leading up to today, but in all, I shouldn't have been nervous. I'm doing my placement with an awesome teacher and the class is great. I'm excited.

The only problem is, I'm living at home with my parents for six weeks. This isn't ideal. I've loved teachers' college this year, and it sucks to give up my independence and my bachelor apartment for so long. I also hate being away from my guyfriend. We spent, like, the last four weekends together. We usually see each other every day. So... it's weird not seeing him, even though I've only known him since the beginning of September. I'm also worried that I'm probably missing him more than he's missing me, but I guess that's an insecurity that most people deal with...?
94  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What do you make of Leon Panetta's comments on Barack Obama's leadership? on: October 12, 2014, 10:14:52 pm
It's nice to have people like Panetta legitimize my existing opinion, but he doesn't really change anything. It's very clear Obama isn't the best decision-maker when it comes to foreign policy.

I was coming here to complain about something, but that's damn tragic. I'm sorry to hear it. It definitely puts my six weeks away from Tommy in perspective.
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: What's wrong with secession? on: October 10, 2014, 02:00:40 pm
The thing is, a ten-person senate is probably the best makeup for a legislature. We can't sustain five 10-person senates, and with smaller legislative bodies it's hard to keep interest up.

There are five at-large seats at the moment and five regional seats, right?  Why couldn't we just remove two seats (one regional and one at-large) each time a region chose to secede.  I'm not advocating secession or even saying you're necessarily wrong about the ideal size of the Senate.  My point is simply that there is a relatively easy and logical fix if Senate size is your concern.  Another hypothetical possibility would be for each region to become it's own country (with a 3-5 person Assembly as it's sole legislative body) which would eliminate the need for a federal Senate.  Again, I want to stress that I'm not advocating secession; I'm merely considering how the game could adapt structurally to the secession of one or more regions.

You aren't reading Hagrid properly.

He's saying that if all of the regions were to be different countries, then they'd each have their own 10 member senates, which would mean at least 50 active players.

Now I think you could probably make do with a 6 person legislature, but you'd also need to factor in governors, justices among other things, so the point still stands.

Couldn't a five person Senate work just as well?  That way you only need 25 active players.  It is still a lot, but it seems much more doable.

No, that's why the regions fail.

Maybe all the attention-seekers who thrived in the chaos could actually try and seek positive attention by contributing to the game when there's not a vacuum to fill.

I don't think it was your timeline so much as Labor's complete incompetence.

Anyway, I suspect the recent turmoil has plunged the country into complete economic turmoil with a seriously downgraded credit rating, etc.?

But, of course, this is "the most fun Atlasia has ever been!!1!!2'"
