    2285) when made to pick between newly purchased white bread and old moldy white bread you think about eating the moldy "tiles" because it's got flood plains and 3:food: and the others are just empty desert "tiles"

    2286) when you meet someone you haven't seen for a long time you think about "reestablishing diplomatic relations" and "renegotiating trade deals"

    2287) you try to explain real world affairs and geopolitics in terms of civ4 (ah, the June 2009 protests in Persia were the result of Ahmadinejad's defiance of the UN nuke ban resolution... in order for Brazil's economy to really take off, they have to cottage up the Amazon... the root cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict are the two shrined religions in Jerusalem... :crazyeye: )

    2290) Whenever you read a clue after 2000 you realize that it has in fact been posted before. Then you can from memory point out the exact clue that was identical to this one in the thread's past.

    2291) You are genuinely surprised that a there has been a two month gap between posts on a Civ IV thread

    2292) You dig up a two-month old civ IV thread to give 3 clues that aren't even funny

    Sorry to bump, but:

    2295: You wonder why whoever's leading China is stupid enough to use police state in a time of peace...or maybe they're planning for a war!!!!!!

    2296: You don't notice any military units in your city and freak out; surely any random guy with a club would easily raze your large metropolis, its citizens and its police force with ease! Not even a reinforced bunker could stop that!
