    112. You like to space your cities really, really far apart and build cities on 1x1 tiles in the middle of an ocean half the map away.

    113: You nag the human (or another AI no doubt) for RoP agreement, and even enter without permission if you have to, just to send one or two settlers across their vast land to grab that peninsula on the other side.

    114: When in peace or when you have a ROP, don't panic when huge armies appear next to your 3 major cities. Really, they're there for training, so don't worry.
    Humans are to be trusted.

    115. Don't worry when the human is building a palace right next to his or her current capital and Feudalism is only a few turns away. Obviously, the human wants a new palace and would never, ever pull a stunt as cheesy as prebuilding.

    116. You agree with everything that has been written so far.

    note: not really, it's just a sign. ;)

    117: A human's puny swordsmen can't stand up to your numberless archers when you use them one at a time.

    And the ultimate sign:

    00: You never, ever read the War Academy nor the Forums. Why bother, when you can't make use of them?

    kk (the "00" is supposed to be infinity; can't make out that there is a character for it & am too lazy to bother!)

    Try Alt + 236 : ∞

    And to be fancy:

    118: Never, ever disband your mighty fleet of triremes, not even when you have already discovered the entire map. Who knows what you might need them for? Always keep moving them throughout the world's oceans.

    119: Always make sure to eradicate all barbarian units, even when they are close to another civ and not anywhere near your cities.

    Win 3 straight attacks against fortified veteran Mech Infantry having artillery support with your Mech Infantry, do it again 3 turns later to destroy New Bad-Tibiria again. Your SAMs and Fighters never miss. Your fearless tanks win against the MI's mentioned above routinely.

    Edit: is it the name or the location? New Bad-Tibiria dies again, situating it on a hill doesn't work either. Slowed it down, but still doomed.

    What are they now, Galleys? :crazyeye:

    120: Losing a war with several Modern Armor units thrusting deep into your territory. An immediate counter attack with a stack warriors is the best option.

    Oops, I didn't even notice something was wrong, when I first read the "Trireme" post... Looks like I'm still thinking in Civ2 terms, too... :old:

    121. When you've got nukes you think the best way to use them is to bombard your enemy's smallest city several times in a row.

    122. You think that signing a Military Alliance with an island based, one city civ with spears against a continental, 30 city civ with Infantry will help you win that war.
