Well, I'm about to start with the faux-outrage if these votes are actually going to be voided...

Lol, Griffin.

Anyway, it clearly says EDT. It is 0:00 EDT.

Atlas time at the top of my browser shows 12:29 a.m... I was just about to vote myself.

Am I the only person who's getting sick and tired of the Ice Bucket Challenge?

If you care about ALS, just donate some ing money to ALS research. Sorry to pour cold water on this exciting trend, but pouring cold water on yourself does no good to people with ALS.

Well, you have to admit it has spread awareness much better than almost anything else could have.

It really is amazing how he managed to build a stable nation on an idea as opposed to an ideology. The idea of a republic, not the ideology of prole rule.

Indeed it isn't, but in order to get from the Baltic to the Sea of Japan you can't really avoid going around India and if you can't use the Suez Canal, then you have to go around Africa as well.

So I think the sentence is wrong in grammar.

"Around Africa and India" is not describing the Baltic Sea; it's describing the journey to the Baltic Sea.

Just because they disagree with you doesn't mean it's "blind support."

Likely the extremism has made the game inaccessible to some.

Being on the wrong track and being dead are two different things, though I understand why some would try and sell the failings of one Atlasian as a "flaw in the system!!1"

the Mideast is literally dead though. JCL is the only one in the legislature.

Death is irreversible.

I'm incredibly torn. If the worst happens, I think we need some kind of contingency, but on the other hand I don't want to give them an inch and have them take a mile instead...

I'm honestly just looking forward to the gif at the end. I can't believe how much I've moved around the map.

Refortify by moving the maximum number from CO to OK. End turn.

Phew.
91  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination XI: Round 7 (HagridOfTheDeep) on: August 21, 2014, 01:25:43 am
Attack Kansas to Colorado.

Attack Pennsylvania to New York to Connecticut, do or die.
92  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination XI: Round 7 (HagridOfTheDeep) on: August 21, 2014, 12:58:21 am
Attack Mississippi to Arkansas to Oklahoma. Await further orders.

So, you guys will recall that I used the situation with my cat to, um, "playfully accompany" what I thought was more important news, but it turns out that her health was much worse than we thought, and our family has made the decision to put her down. She's home now and I don't think we have a date yet, but it was kind of spelled out to us as the only solution. Sad

It's just very hard to deal with, because I have so many thoughts racing through my head that you tend to also get with a sick relative. The denial. "Does the vet actually know what he's doing?" "Are they only interested in making money?" "Are we sure there's no other option?" "Why not let her die naturally?" "Couldn't it just pass?"

It's a tough one. Euthanasia throws an interesting wrench into dealing with the emotional aspects of this. I mean, she's laying right here and "looks" fine...

And as silly as it sounds, contemplating the death of a pet who's been by my side for 12 years has made me think a little bit more about mortality in general. A bunch of swollen organs and fluids are going to do her in. It's scary to actually confront the fact that crude matter is the only thing holding us on to life.

Sad

How do you unprod someone? Tongue

Missouri to Tennessee to North Carolina to South Carolina to Georgia to Florida to Alabama to Mississippi, all in, do or die. Await further orders.

Hmmmm... that's an odd attack, I mean... sure, you've taken away a regional bonus, but left yourself vulnerable as SS can place new armies as easily take your gains away.

It looks like Hagrid's come to the conclusion that he can't afford to concentrate on either SS or Matt and has picked the third of the four options I laid out. The only thing I would disagree with is that unless he was forced to play two sets, I'd have only played one set: Missouri, Delaware, and South Dakota.  He would have had a reasonable chance of getting and holding onto one or both of Louisiana and Texas and getting 2, 4, or even more additional armies if he could turn in a mixed set.  He'd have been taking a slight RISK of getting knocked out before he could use those armies, or of not having enough to keep Matt and SS from getting much in the way of bonus, but deferring 4 armies now in the reasonable expectation of more later would have been worth it.

I know I'm not done my turn yet, but yes, that was one of my dilemmas. I went with the sure thing, and maybe I'll regret it, but ultimately I decided not to hold onto a mitt-full of cards and take my chances as is.

Anyway, my next orders are coming soon, but I have to figure out what direction to do my little loop-around in. Tongue

Congrats, and good luck. This is an important one.

All right. In addition to the three base reinforcements, this gives me 14, for a total of 17. I believe I get another two on Missouri as well.

Please deploy as follows:

3 on Iowa
14 (+2) on Missouri

Iowa to Illinois to Kentucky to West Virginia, all in. If the attack on Illinois somehow gets me down to less than four armies, await further orders.

Iíll have more to do after I get to WV, but please stop here so I can get the lay of the land.

Thanks Joe, and sorry for the delay.
