The Right to Bear Arms - A Repudiation
So it turns out that the right to bear arms was actually only intended insofar as the usage by paramilitary militia groups in the event of a prolonged and protracted occupation by an enemy. The modern day interpretation of our gun laws is a fallacy perpetrated by the gun lobby to keep people dying, and keep their coffers flowing.

Multiple coasts question
So in a live gunboat game, as Austria I had armies in Serbia and Rumania, and a fleet in Greece. So I set my orders for Gre-Bul (SC) supported by both Ser and Rum.

Is there a place for Diplomacy statistics?
I've been casually reading through Richard Sharp's "The Game of Diplomacy" and he keeps referencing statistics he got from somewhere. I know the book is very dated but I was curious as to if there was still somewhere I could find these statistics and if they've been kept up to date.

Is it possible to have exactly one electron sent through an electric circuit somehow?
What I ideally want is two power sources which send one electron each at the same time into one single electric circuit, observing which route is taken (indirectly).
Thoughts on whether this is possible? Thoughts on how to do this?

How statistically possible is it to only get France or Turkey when you play on classic?
Throughout my 20 or so games that I have played, I have been France and Turkey a disproportionate amount of times. I'm not complaining, it just seems weird. In 2 recent games that just started, I drew Turkey in one, and France in another.

So I met this girl
She is moderately attractive, and plays board games. She is very close to my age and is a soil scientist. I was thinking I would play it slow and do the whole friendzone thing for a while intentionally but with an M. Night Shamalyan twist at some point and I surprise her with a new board game we can play or something.

It is that time again - to see how the citizens of webDip would run a country. Let's plan on starting after the Mafia game, but we can get our ducks in a row now. We will need a volunteer(s) to help run the show. This could take some amount of knowledge and dedication, as well as an unbiased nature.

I don't understand Jamie. You're a skeptical asshole except for when it counts. Especially with someone like wjessop, you should have had at least a little doubt. And stop PMing the GMs so much. Sometimes it's better to have your doubts than to ask the GMs to confirm every little thing.

Yeah jamiet, the problem with such actions is that people start reading into them. Looking for ways for it to make sense.

Because honestly i still don't understand at all why you did it

game's over now Jamie, I've suggested that perhaps you need to lighten up and accept more responsibility about how you handled the situation, and to your credit you have. Whether or not you play the same next game is down to you, it won't affect me either way. If you're calmer, people will no doubt try and draw conclusions about 'Jamie playing out of character' etc. Nothing you can do about that, I'm afraid.

Any way. Let's move on to fun times in the next game.

@Maniac
"@jamie - I just think when people play games, even for big money like football, the players should not be concerned with things they can't affect, just concentrate on your own performance. They amount of times I see footballers/managers earning millions blame a linesman for a poor decision. It serves no purpose. People make mistakes, calling a linesman blind/corrupt/incompetent and doubting their parentage is a waste of time. Concentrate on the things you can affect."

I just got the call. Youve been traded to mafiascum.net for a 7-year 435 million dollar contract. Pack your shit buddy you just got rich.

It amuses me that no-one is being told off for complaining the set-up was unbalanced. Isn't that also something outside the player's control, Maniac?
Maniac (344 D (B))
04 Apr 16 UTC
I'm all for constructive criticism after the game. I think the yoyo PM confirmation issue drew the GMs into the game and confirmed the PM was sent, that is something that shouldn't have happened, but continueing to press it at the time made matters worse IMHO.

With regard to the set-up I didn't think it unbalanced when we started and whilst we ran away witsuspect lish it in the end forcing a concession, we did well in some departments - lynching vash and Demon (obviously) and yoyo shooting ND turned the game. At that time he had 2 from 7 chance of being right. If he had of been wrong, then he wouldn't have been clear and we're looking at more difficult game.

I also think some scum contributed to their own downfall. Reading the mafia thread some were on point with their reads. Perhaps they weren't a team insomuch as they followed HR too easily.
