Friends,

We know Jamie, your spelling of the word "color" gave it away.
Jamiet99uk (202 D)

You mean the word "colour".
Steephie and I probable will get in a big fight over Holland and that'll give it away :)

More importantly, can we agree on the rules for the Mountain? The rules we used for the Mountain 3 were:
Solo -> winner advances, everyone else kicked off.
Draw -> Biggest and second-biggest power advance, everyone else kicked off.
Ties settled by RR, then GR.

I propose to keep all the rules, except change the tie-breaker rule to either a fixed sequence (Italy > Turkey > Germany > Austria > England > France > Russia or something), or to use ssorenn's rule: in case of ties, both players are kicked off.

I know Jamie, I'm actually on your side with that one :P

I was merely joking since it's obviously the uk-bit in your name giving it away..

I agree to these rules:

Solo -> winner advances, everyone else kicked off.
Draw -> Biggest and second-biggest power advance, everyone else kicked off.

I prefer ssorenn's tiebreak rule

I'm fine w/ ssorenn's tiebreak rule too, though I wouldn't be opposed to a fixed sequence tie breaker either. I don't like the RR or GR b/c my RR got screwed up early using this site, b/f I understood about NMRs and such.
Jamiet99uk (202 D)

I do not like the fixed country sequence tiebreak - there are too many potential arguments about the sequence.

My plan was to get the sequence by asking ATC, Tru Ninja or goldfinger which country has the largest chance of becoming biggest or second-biggest in all games on the site. But I'm happy to play with ssorenn's rule too.

my rule will give the option of the stab in the end game if theres a tie ---some will succeed some will die a miserable death
@ Steephie: I'm holding up the game intentionally. I want to make sure everyone agrees with the rules before we start. Do you agree with ssorenn's tiebreak rule?
Jamiet99uk (202 D)

"Why aren't we playing yet??"

I see, basvanoupheusden.

Does anyone get to make the call? Otherwise we're just discussing endlessly..

I agree with everything, don't care too much about specifics as long as I know what they are.

So yes for ssorenn's rule, yes for anyone's rule.
Ok we have 4 people now in favor of ssorenn's rule: when two players tie for second-biggest, neither advance. I suppose when two players tie for biggest, they both advance. When three or more players tie for biggest, fuck everyone and get a new set of seven.

Let's get confirmation from krellin, phil_a_s, and Glen_Alexander. I'll PM them.

Also let's not wait until we're in agreement on whether we're in favour or in favor.

We have a large majority in favour/favor of the rule, so can we just join and play? We'll state the rules again in-game, it's not like we'll play with different rules if one guy isn't in favour/favor..
Ok I joined.

Constitutional Rights for Embryonic Americans?
In the GOP debate last Thursday, unsurprisingly, abortion was a point of discussion amongst candidates. Obviously they were all pro-life to some extent or another, but Mike Huckabee went so far as to say that abortion was already illegal, because unborn children have the rights to equal protection under the law and due process. Right from conception, they have constitutional rights, he argues.

Regardless of your position on abortion, is this a valid argument?

It's due tomorrow night and I have to do a 12-15 page paper on how the internet of things and the third industrial revolution will affect society and more importantly the work force and employment.

I'm up to around 10 pages and I have no idea what to write for the last 2.
And no, increasing the font size of each period isn't allowed.

Risk taking
http://youtu.be/vBX-KulgJ1o
Great video, but the first thing i think of is relationships, (and given that i was recently dumped, this is no surprise) Naturally you could also apply this to diplomacy; but the probabilities get a little messed up, and in Dip not taking a bet means taking a different course, which may also be risky.
