ok, time for some contraversy: Is Cereal Soup?
I haven't posted much this last week; So i thought i'd post this rather polarising topic.

No, of course cereal isn't soup.

If you're going to ask a ridiculous question, you may as well be pedantic. Cereal is just a term for a variety of food grains. What you're really asking is cereal combined with milk a type of soup.

I think that would necessitate us calling milk itself a soup, with cereal just being an accessory to the soup. So yes.
No! Soup is made of broth.

Once again ora is completely out of touch with the common man. Who gives a damn about ivory tower intellectual arguments about soup and cereal when the real issue the people actually care about is when soup ends and stew begins.
orathaic (1009 D (B))

@abge: Well if soup comes from the word meaning to soak, then even without milk cereal has the ability to soak, so i could call it a soaker...
orathaic (1009 D (B))

@TrPrado, then would you prefer cereal to be a salad??

To soup or not to soup that is the question.

Ramen is the answer

The real controversy: how to spell "controversy"?
steephie22 (182 D (S))
27 Sep 15 UTC
Contraversies can be used to counter supposed controversies if you think they are not controversies:
"Controversy" is spelled "controversy". There is no controversy about the spelling of the word "controversy".

That's how you do a contraversy.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
27 Sep 15 UTC
How do you traverse a question? if not a contra-versial one...

contra- from Latin contra ‘against’.

What is so controversial about my spelling? Is it not phoenetic enough for you?

Pish, the real controversy is how to pronounce it!

Yeah, why the hell would you want soggy cereal? I do not understand people who put in the milk after.
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
27 Sep 15 UTC
I do a bowl with cereal with milk poured on top, then I pour more cereal on top of the residual milk once the former is finished, with preference given to the latter.

9,364,271 subscribers, and 875,778,804 total video views; puts this channel at 49th (sorting by total number of subscribers - not even in the top 100 by video views, as the 100th has a little over 2 billion)

So, eh, yeah. Apparently there is a website which gives quantitative backup to my qualitative claims... (see: https://socialblade.com/youtube/top/100 )

I guess we could segway into webdip's favourite youtubers...

Autumn 2004 Russia F Ukr - Pol ???
How is it possible for a fleet to move from the Ukraine to Poland over land?There is no mention of any water way in the map variant or elswhere. Impossible move in my opinion. It would seem you are now allowed to move fleets from the black sea to the baltic???

Newbie Question
Hello, me and some office mates have just discovered this massively awesome game but we're quite intimidated by the level of skill that people have.

Is it possible to create a game with less than a full team of players, such as 5 man in the regular map. Or playing 10 man in the world map that says 17 players?
