    2539: Clearly it's an English civ, just like the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore.

    2536. Or if were in RFC, just a bunch of Independent cities allied with the U.S..

    I always settle Christchurch. It's a way better spot.

    2540. You dare to try that new abomination some call The Successor. But after a few hours with the abomination, you quickly realize that you didn't play civ4 too much yet... you still have plenty of one-more-turns.

    2542. When I see all those corn, wheat and other fields and farms surrounding my town and 6 temples built, wondering what will be like when Great Profit arrive.

    2543. When you're playing FIFA 12, and you hear the announcer say that Barcelona certainly has divine inspiration, and you're confused because Spain is Catholic and obviously didn't get to Divine Right first.

    2545. When your yardstick for a good game is thousands of hours played, not some pathetic 100 hours.

    2548. You think Byzantium, Constantinople and Istanbul were 3 different cities in 3 different locations.

    2549. Clue 551 is false. Redcoats has bonuses against gunpowder units.

    2550. Because they could no longer see submarines once upgraded.

    2551. Then you bring along a horse just in case that person is being hunted down.

    2552. And you try to do it without any source of water, since you claim to know biology.

    Too much factories, coal plants and forges, obviously.

    The Arabs, and later the Mongols, pillaged Babylon.

    But RFC has the Russians start with General Winter.

    It was gifted to them, obviously.

    An RFC one would be infinitely better.

    It's a mix of horse archers and keshiks.

    Then add the leftover fallout from Soviet times.

    FTFY. India's area is too small.

    2553. When you have given up, you thought that the Internet is not yet fully built.
    2554. Then you wonder who is building the Internet.

    2555. You know it takes ten turns for peace treaties to expire.
    2556. Then you wonder how Russia was able to declare war against Japan with the latter making peace after losing Khalkin Gol badly. And the Russians against the Turks multiple times, with peace only lasting for a year.

    Sort of guilty of 1744, and my ongoing story is a manifestation of 1745 (1746 never happened so far), so it leads to:

    2557. You actually write a story about how you fell in love with [insert name of female leader here].
    2558. Then you constantly imagine yourself rescuing her after traveling back in time (Realpolitik CIV players who are constantly concerned over Cathy are guilty of this).
    2559. After that, you challenge her RL husband to a duel to death (if she's not Elizabeth of England, who died single).

    Some people do it all the time.

    2560. When Billy Mays also died, you knew that another GA is coming.

    2561. Actually, they're independents/rebels/whatever you like to call them, otherwise they're already invading their neighbors since they are always at war against everybody.

    2562.You have tried to draw the equivalent diplo screen.

    2563. Then you tried whipping yourself.
    2564. Several broken bones later, you realized that you're doing a project, not a wonder/building/unit.

    2565) You have succeeded in doing so.

    You read through this entire thread to make sure what you are about to post hasn't been said yet.

    2568 You uninstall the game to make sure that you do not play it constantly, and still you lurk in this forum.

    2567..

    You wondered when the North Korean Leader died IRL, What 2 traits will his son have, and what tech will he research first? will he still be furious at us or just annoyed now?
