ok so I looked up what the actual color of the shoe is. Turns out I am one of the 27% who see its actual colors (and one of the 18% who see the actual colors of both things!)

I clearly see the shoe as pink and white though I did perceive it as grey and eggshell blue for a brief moment yesterday before my vision "snapped" back

I have always seen the dress as black and blue and I have no idea how people see white or gold at all

Both of the following images are optical illusions that appear as different colors to different people. I have created this poll to determine what correlation may exist between the colors people observe in the two images. Please look at both of the following images and note which option more closely matches how the article of clothing appears to you (if neither description is an exact match, vote for whichever option is closer).

Vote in the poll above only after looking at both images.







THE SHOE: GREY AND TEAL, OR PINK AND WHITE?










THE DRESS: BLACK AND BLUE, OR WHITE AND GOLD?


4  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Halter vs. Southeast on: October 05, 2017, 07:54:44 pm
Greetings Honorable Justices

My client Dr. Denis P Halter located out of New Castle Delaware was fined for issuing three illegal abortions and has had his license since revoked. All three abortions took place at 15, 18, and 19 weeks.

Dr Halter alleges the act that he was disciplined under directly violates Section 5 of the Atlasia constitution. Specifically along the lines of a persons right to liberty. Halter alleges that by restricting abortion at 14 weeks a persons right to liberty is violated. Halter also alleges the act in question violates the previous precedent set in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Both cases held that abortion can not be restricted up to the point of fetal viability. Halter alleges that fetal viability is around 24 weeks; thus this act violates past precedent.

Halter is asking for the court to rule the South Aborting act as unconstitutional and reverse all fines Halter has had to pay plus reinstate his license.

Quote from: Section 5.
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.


Quote from: uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=257339.25
1. No medical facility or medical professional in the South may perform an Abortion after 14 weeks except to save the life of the mother.
2.Surgical Abortion subject to existing regulations is available throughout the 14 week mark. Medical professionals may refuse to perform an Abortion.
3. Any medical professional that performs an illegal abortion will face a $50000 fine per instance of illegal Abortion. Medical professionals will have their medical certificates rescinded after three illegal abortions performed.

Thanks
BK

This is a problem I've noticed intermittently for years though personally I haven't noticed it since the upgrade but I haven't spent any extensive amount of time on the forum since then, either.

One thing I do know, which I assume might be the cause of some of these experiences, is this:

  • You make a post and complete it, becoming the most recent poster in the thread
  • After you finish your post, another person completes an edit on a post they made earlier in the thread
  • You click to go back to the board
  • The thread you just posted in shows the [NEW] flag even though you're the most recent poster, because the other poster completed their edit in the interim between the time you finished your post and when you clicked to view the board.

I assume this is working as intended though in the past it caused me some confusion. It might be what some people are actually seeing?

So what's the protocol if schwampel doesn't happen?

Minority government? New election? If AfD really is shattering up, maybe CDU/CSU/FDP could round up 29 AfD defectors to reach a majority (but even if they found the numbers for that, would they even want to?)

There will be 709 seats in the Bundestag.

709

That means 111 overhang and balance seats.

111 is insane, that has to be a record, right?

What's the maximum possible number of overhang/balance seats? Like is there even a legal limit? If not, what is the largest theoretically possible size the bundestag can get?

14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: October 2017 Federalist Party Convention - PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY SCHEDULE POSTED on: September 18, 2017, 06:10:37 pm
Lol. Rando lefty Adam Griffin cheerleader conveniently joins a party immediately after a rule change, then proceeds to complain that said party is being unfair to him because of the rule change that predated his membership. Is there a reason you didn't register until (seemingly) the moment you found out you couldn't vote in the primary? Were you aware of the primary and just sitting around waiting for the last possible moment to register or something? That doesn't sound like someone with a sincere interest in the Federalist Party. I don't see how this change is particularly unfair to a poster who the party did not even know was interested in crossing over, due to that poster's deliberate decision to not register.

I don't want to air dirty laundry in public but in recent months Adam and I stopped seeing eye to eye and had a bit of a falling out. That's why, as you may have noticed, I almost stopped participating in Atlasia completely not too long ago.

Honestly I have joined the Federalists, in large part, because of the influence of several friends from #southernchat in IRC that I've become close with recently. I also greatly respect the Federalists's efforts at game reform to promote Atlasia and help it to thrive. I've invested years into this game and I'm tired of seeing "establishment" parties that stay in power, essentially, by finding a status quo that puts them in charge and then sucking the fun out of the game, keeping new people from joining because it upsets the apple cart.

I've invested a decade into this game, I want to see it live!

I've expressed interest in joining several times to dfwlibertylover and others, and in fact, late last night dfw directly urged me to join as soon as possible because he was worried future registrations might be restricted in some manner (I wasn't clear on the details). I decided to take the plunge and join, and here I am Smiley

I am interested in participating in both the convention and the primary because I'd like to take an active role in the new party that I'm excited to join. I've already been collaborating with several Federalists with regards to a potential lawsuit that I might file, so I'm not exactly all by myself. Smiley With regards to the primary, I am undecided because I very much like both candidates, I am leaning towards oakvale at the moment but honestly I want to wait until after the debate to make up my mind for sure.

I'll admit I jumped the gun, the circumstances didn't seem to add up and I assumed the worst. When I made that post I was concerned NCYankee had acted specifically to stop my participation but I suppose that was just paranoia. Him and I have a long and checkered history and I feared he didn't want me to join. Honestly I look up to the guy and I have ever since we were in the Senate together some eight years ago. A major appeal of joining the Federalist Party for me, in all honestly, is for us to finally be on the same side. I suppose honestly I'm just upset at myself for not registering sooner.

I am the one who tracked Hurricane Irma in game with full permission from the GM, so yeah I'm aware, the options that were presented were to move the primary up and then hold the rules stuff in Boston,MA (which may also be hit by a TS), or postpone all of that, we are still in the process of deciding. Thanks for the fun logical mind games dear.

Thank you for the info! I was unaware Irma was simulated in-game. I was only suspicious because your explanation confused me, any mind games I played were on myself. If you don't understand what I was trying to point out then I must have misinterpreted your post.

19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: October 2017 Federalist Party Convention - PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY SCHEDULE POSTED on: September 18, 2017, 02:43:31 pm
Hi Poirot, if you need a true justification for emergency, the city of Jacksonville has requested that we clear out quickly as they are trying to recover from Hurricane Irma, thus we have agreed to speed things up on their behalf. As for why we didn't move the Convention, Jacksonville still wanted our money and our money that we paid for the convention will help the city of Jacksonville recover from the Hurricane, thanks for understanding and be sure to donate to the effort!

I am very concerned about this aberration from our party's schedule per our bylaws and this explanation is only making me more confused

Until just a couple of days ago, every member of our party was operating under the assumption that the October convention would, you know, be in October? This justification for the emergency does not make sense because why would we immediately decide to hold our convention weeks early, AFTER that city had already been hit by a hurricane? Do you have a source where the game moderator has mentioned the decisions of the Jacksonville local government on this issue, or even anything mentioned about hurricane Irma at all?

Why would we go to Jacksonville early, knowing it had been hit by a hurricane? If the city wanted our money, wouldn't they advise us to hold the convention at the time we are scheduled to hold it?

This seems like circular logic - we had to declare an emergency and move the convention forward because of the situation at our convention location that we have to deal with because we decided to move the convention forward?

I joined this party because I thought it stood for the rule of law, but this peculiar convention is causing me to worry I have made the wrong choice. There appears to be no actual emergency that would require the convention to be rushed and held so far in advance and I don't understand any sort of reasoning why this happened.

I feel that this is unfair to me as a new member, that I am now not allowed to participate in a convention that shouldn't be happening until two weeks after I joined? I wanted to run as a Federalist candidate for the legislature, and I think I could have campaigned well and delivered our party a new seat. Why have I been excluded and what "emergency" is denying me the ability to serve my party and country?
