      Do you know anything about what's happened with Flying Pig? I miss the guy.

        I do too. He said in the summer that he'd be away for a while and I've seen him in passing maybe twice since then.

      And Constantinople, although the center of the Byzantine empire, is the capital of Turkey today, so the author was probably explaining it the way he understood it. It's a minor error.

      Middlesex was a historical region in England, encompassing London, Westminster and Westminster Abbey. So Henry I did actually marry Matilda in Middlesex. The spelling may be wrong, and the lineage is questionable, but don't dismiss it entirely. And Constantinople WAS the birth place of many of the Byzantine rulers.

        I'm British, so I know where Middlesex used to be, but if the writer is going to insist on using a historical place, why list Constantinople as being in Turkey?

      Re-reading IOT4 for historical archiving, and completely forgot you'd been shadowing the game. If only you'd been a mod back then, we might've stood a chance against the spam. :P

        Close. In Norwegian the 'd' is actually silent, so it's 'Tor-val', though to English speakers it'll sound more like 'Tuhr-val'.

      Annoyance: my game as the Umbranmare Hive has to end due to a bug which crashes the game should a science vessel owned by the player either get destroyed or retreat; naturally my Ironman save was set just before one of my science ships kicked the bucket.

      Shame: I was looking forward to face off against space UKIP...

        Well, yes. It's another anime avatar in a similar style, so I think it fits with your established MO.

      I believe I think that most things I can say in any given situation is uninteresting to whoever I'm speaking to

        I suffer that problem too, but then that's because I find history, quantum physics and terrible puns to be interesting and not many people do too. That doesn't usually stop me boring people though. :p

      If it gives me an opportunity to make an offhand remark about how no one expects the Spanish Inquisition, then I'd be okay with it. ;)

      You can say what you want abut him, but he certainly has a way to elicit a reaction for people, no? Me personally I always imagine him as a king from many generations of incestuous love, who needs many Jesters dancing in his court at the same time to entertain him.

      That my friend, is down to my on/off activity level here on CFC. When I first joined I only frequented the civ4 sub-forums and my activity was fairly sporadic. Eventually I became active in forum games like mafia, but posts in that sub-forum didn't register in the stats back then. I've always posted some in OT but never been super active there either. Then a few years back I went on a CFC hiatus for a couple of years with just about zero activity. So my post/day stat is bound to be pretty low yeah.

      I just detailed why Palestinian society is different (and other than home demolitions there's literally no way to deter suicide bombers, which I don't think the IRA ever had).

      Nassim Taleb is an advocate of this policy, btw, and so far no one's labeled him a war crime apologist like they did with Benny Morris. I suspect that's because Taleb didn't mention Israel in particular.

      I don't see any difference between "can't keep its own citizens safe" and "wouldn't be able to keep its own citizens safe without this policy." In the Palestinian case, there's a huge social incentive to do terrorist attacks, the society is basically tribal (one person's actions reflects on relatives), and attackers, along with their families, receive money from various terrorist organizations. Even without going into specifics, that's strong evidence that the rate of attacks would be a lot higher without the home demolitions.

      Do you or don't you think demolishing homes is ever justified? You're confusing me here.

      You're looking at God's own country. Totally different.

      Google "God's own county" and any confusion will be cleared up. :D
