    274. You can actually sympathize with Chairman Yang from time to time.

    275. Every time you see a "Staples," (an office supply store chain in the US, for the uninitiated) you begin to wonder just what our government is really doing...

    276. You think the Netherlands was created by Formers.

    277. Planet Busting is your primary form of stress relief.

    278. Having done everything else, you try to conquer Planet using only Scout Infantry.

    279. ...And succeed.

    280. You have nightmares with russian planet busters going on your city.

    281. You go to Brazil, to the amazonic florest, and when you see a snake, you run and begin to shout "there's a mind worm there"!!

    I am new here. My name is Slaughter and i am from Brazil. Nice to see some brazillians here... GO GO BRAZIL !!

    Hello :wavey:

    There's a new member intro's here:

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=111008

    282: You think about modding [civ4] so that it looks like SMAC.
    283: You rename ICBM's "Planet Buster"
    284:You wish that firaxis will make a expansion for [civ4] so that there is a game of SMAC at the end of a normal game.

    286: You are delighted with the idea of 284, and seriously consider learning to mod just so that you can do it yourself.

    Hey guys!! I am the Slaughter and i began playing civilization when my big brother, Neto, showed it to me, i loved Civilization II. After that, i got Alpha Centaury, and recently, Civilization III. Any ideas of where i can find the expansions of civIII on the internet?

    By the way, you can call Filipe, Augusto, Sebastian(my cogname in School, people love to call me Sebastian there), guy, great general of the Brazillian army(?), biggest lover (of woman!!) of the world, but I prefer Slaughter anyways.

    EDIT: Can someone PLEASE planet burst this BIZARRE POST??
    I was to be post in my introduction thread, by i missed the target.

    299 You download the updates for Alpha Centauri, and now it can play on both Macs and two of the others, and your parents say this is better than an Xmas present. (Currently fighting with DOSBOX to make it play Ascendancy in XP too...)
