      Thanks, I appreciate it, but it probably won't happen. Christmas with my family is a very lengthy affair, that can easily stretch from noon to midnight between lunch and pleasantries and Wii.

      Thank anyway :)

      Yeah, it was actually nice. Thanks.

      He's nice to watch and listen to, he just doesnt say anything substantial mpst times. Most videos are basically just saying "this is awesome" but taking five minutes and all detours possible.

      I followed the Nerdwriter until I realised he was just making empty words look pretty 90% of the time.

      I think this new forum is not a good idea. Who will battle the white supremacists, fascists and deplorables on Civfantatics when you're all in a different place? I understand it's easier to sit in a safe space where you don't have to defend your ideas, but you shouldn't just leave the place to them, as Civfanatics is frequented by many young people who may be impressionable, and buy into the far right stuff.

        That's why you weren't invited.

      I'd be all for that to be honest.

      We mostly quibbled about small stuff. On the big stuff, you're on the side of the angels so far as I'm concerned.

      As to OT, if I wanted to debate fascists and their fellow travellers I'd have joined Stormfront. TBH posting on OT made me bitter and angry. It's probably why I was so disagreeable (to put it mildly) on there.

      In any case, It's a good essay and I might chime in to help out.

      I graduated from Georgia Tech with a BS in Civil Engineering in December of 2010. I passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and so am technically an Engineer-in-Training but have not actually worked in that capacity yet. (I neglected to pursue an internship opportunity before graduating during the recession, couldn't find an entry level position near home, and was not open to moving away until after my father recovered from leukemia and the side effects of chemotherapy.)

      thanks, cutlass

      Yes it was. I'm still going through with a couple of other interviews with other companies as SpaceX is in the process of generating my official contract and I won't leave any stone unturned until I sign. But the job I got at SpaceX is not only the kind of thing I am really good at but I also really enjoy that kind of work (technical writing - which, despite the name, is an engineering job that requires an AE degree). So I'm really excited!

      Glad to hear, man!

      How's the leg?

      It's really awesome.
    15. JohannaK
      All right! Yeah, that's a really outstanding album. I put it besides or just behind Rumours.

      Thank goodness. I was worried. :run:

      This quote is so awesome that I have to share it with someone:
      “Those who wish to seek out the cause of miracles and to understand the things of nature as philosophers, and not to stare at them in astonishment like fools, are soon considered heretical and impious, and proclaimed as such by those whom the mob adores as the interpreters of nature and the gods. For these men know that, once ignorance is put aside, that wonderment would be taken away, which is the only means by which their authority is preserved.”
      ― Baruch Spinoza, Ethics

      The charity thing is pretty intimidating. I feel like the obvious effects of our actions are not always apparent.

    This is not a civ game forum. Sections include general discussions, depression support group, writers workshop, pictures and artwork, machines and games. I hope some of you would have an interest in taking a look.
