    124. If there is a stable, your people will be more productive as they can now ride to work on their new sheep.

    125. It may require up to half the iron in a mine to supply one army with simple swords. Supplying your army with machineguns requires no resources.

    126. Working on an active volcanoe wil earn you money and also make your people more productive!

    130. We could have won the world by now if we just dished out gold to small countries (city-states).

    rofl, good one. Also note than an entire battalion of crossbowmen will take about 30 years to take down a single artist. (I imagine that artist being like Tony Montana in the final scene of Scarface)

    First, I love the thread. Interestingly enough, there are a few that I could see being true in the real world (New Yorkers rioting if the Metrodome were destroyed, for instance).

    I was wondering what this comment was referring to, however. I've only recently begun playing CiV, so I may not have encountered it yet.

    Actually, the stealth bomber is subsonic. As is the stealth "fighter". Supersonic speeds make it less radar stealthy (the shockwave has some reflectivity). So, it's not really that much more implausible than hitting the B17. Those old trebuchet-ists just had good eyes & timing. They don't make'em like they used to!
