01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves!
01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: When Britain first, at Heaven's command
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter of the land,
And guardian angels sang this strain:
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

The nations, not so blest as thee,
Must, in their turns, to tyrants fall;
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful, from each foreign stroke;
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame:
All their attempts to bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine:
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair;
Blest Isle! With matchless beauty crown'd,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."
01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Let's get this Russia, France, England, Austria alliance on! SO EXCITED!!! I think we are all married to each other's cousins by 1906 anyway.
01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: An old bull and a young bull stand on a hillside, overlooking a pasture. The young bull says to the old bull, “Hey, let’s run down and fuck one of those cows.” The old bull replies, “let’s walk down and fuck ’em all

England, you just made a classic the classic young bull mistake.
01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: WTF are you talking about? And stop stealing Inserra’s stories.
01 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: That's a Phil Hopkins' story, Russia
02 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ready up!!! I' getting bored
02 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1905: A man staggers into the emergency room with a concussion, multiple bruises, and a five iron wrapped around his neck. Naturally the doctor asks him what happened. "Well, it was like this" said the man. "I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows. We went to look for them, and while I was rooting around I noticed that one of the cows had something white in it's rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it stuck right in the middle of the cow's butt. That's when I made my mistake." "What did you do?", asked the doctor. "Well, I lifted the tail, pointed, and yelled to my wife, "Hey! This looks like yours!"

If you didn't like that cow joke don't worry, I've got udders.
02 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Did you hear about how the circus is closing down after all these years? Well it's because of a bad fire.

It was in tents.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: If someone could ask the gentlemen from France to log in and disband his unit I would appreciate it. Thank you kindly for your consideration.
09 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Will someone please attack Russia in the north? Asking for a friend.
09 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Looks like AH can have Turkish centers whenever they want them, just saying . . .
09 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Moves! Let's finish this damn game before the new year.
09 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1907: mine are in
10 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Set to green!
13 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: As an outsider now this game is comically idiotic. You are all stabbing each other and attacking in each other while Germany romps to an easy win. Jason deserves it but good god at least make it hard on him.

AH attacks Warsaw for no reason instead of Berlin? Huh?
England attacks St Pete when they could work together to make things difficult for Germany and now the Germans have all of their boats in position to attack the British isles.... wtf?
Turkey attacks all three of the other countries and yet lives to fight another day... what?
Italy is still sitting in the same locations as 1901!!!
Russia tries to ally with AH last year when he could have had Munich and or/Vienna when my unit was alive and now is on parity with AH and they remain in a strong position?

LOL... French Tyrolia and Piedmont laugh at all of you and await or German overlords soon.
13 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: And I fully recognize I am out first so what this says about me I don't know.
13 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: MOVES........
21 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Did anyone else get the wedding invitation for the impending nuptials of the heir to throne of Austria-Hungary and the sultan’s daughter? Just curious who was going, it will be interesting to see who wears the pants in that relationship.
21 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Some questions: Am I the daughter of the sultan or the sultan? If I am the daughter then is it weird if I wear the pants or don't wear the pants? Is the heir a man or a woman? Is your analogy designed to break gender stereotypes or reinforce them? Are you more upset about losing before Russia or after France? Do you believe you failed because of our strong alliance or because of your own poor play?
21 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1910: BTW - I am just kidding. In all seriousness it was a pleasure playing against you this game. I am fairly confident I am going to fall next. Hope there are no hard feelings and I look forward to working with you the next time we play (as long as I get to wear pants)!
23 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: We just need you and Peters to play like rationale actors. This whole 'we know the South guys are in cahoots' is stupid. If Peters had adhered to our agreement we could at least give Germany a run for his money. Instead he gives up centers like his mom gives up the goods and despite having no pressure on him in the south he can't crack me with a 10-7 tactical advantage. Meanwhile Grandma Germany plays like his mother gives up the goods, cautiously and not very well. So I have to try and figure out WWPD, in other words think of the opposite of what makes sense and defend against that. So, congrats to Germnay and Peters don't forget... if you ain't furst, you're last...
23 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: oh... and Happy Thanksgiving
23 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: I believe rationality (like all things) is in the eye of the beholder. Happy Thanksgiving y'all
23 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia had his crack at Germany back in the spring of '05, specifically Berlin, and he was turned back. Is it Germany's fault that Russia didn't have the stomach to mount another offensive into Central Europe? No sir. And as for caution.....well, diplomacy is a marathon. Slow and steady wins the race. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
23 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Here is my Thanksgiving manifesto since everyone else is contributing.

Looking at the board I chose what seemed most rationale. Russia's refusal to move towards Germany led me to believe that all the Czar wanted was for me to get into a war with Germany so my troops would be split in a two front war (some leaders never learned that lesson but I know a little history and a two front war is not good) at which time Russia could attack Austria Hungary after finishing off Turkey (who doesn't want to finish off some Turkey this weekend).

England has criticized my moves as well but leaving St. Petersburg open for a number of rounds when you could have had a build was not in your long term interest nor did it inspire confidence in me that you really wanted to ally with Austria Hungary. I am pretty new to this game as well so when Russia criticizes my moves it is party because I don't know all the rules. You and I both need to learn the rules/strategies. #207learn

Italy's promise to transport my armies to Tunis instead of taking Naples is illogical at best. I love the effort though.

France, what can I say, you still hold Piedmont and Tyrolia but your success in this game is much like France's successes in most war (complete and total failure). At least "we'll always have Paris!"

Germany appears in the driver seat and headed for victory. Congrats!

Turkey, I hope you get gutted today as everyone gets their fill of you.

Happy Thanksgiving and I enjoy playing with you all.
27 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1912: Would someone remind England to get their move in?
28 Nov 17 UTC LOL Turkey. Let me guess: Stab Naples, Ankara and Greece. Claim victory.
28 Nov 17 UTC I am not looking for victory from this game - just a draw. Once Russia is dead I think the other players may be amenable to that!
28 Nov 17 UTC Whoops. Game over
28 Nov 17 UTC فظيع - روسيا ستسمح بدلا من ألمانيا أن تحكم
العالم أكثر من تخسر الإمبراطورية التركية
28 Nov 17 UTC Translation: Somehow I managed to stay alive in the game but by doing so destroyed any chance of anyone but Germany winning the game. I don't really play to win, I just like backstabbing people! God is great.
28 Nov 17 UTC COngrats to Jason!
28 Nov 17 UTC Yes, congrats to Germany!
28 Nov 17 UTC Thanks! I hope any bad blood from this match dissipates as we begin the new game.
28 Nov 17 UTC Congrats as well. It was a good game.
