    Damn you Hans!!! I curse you and hope your cold drink tomorrow is warm!!!!

    Kidding, you just got me to start looking through old ABBA songs on YouTube, again....if someone mention ABBA somewhere or I hear them on the radio,
    I start checking them out again. Because I love ABBA, as I have been on their journey since the beginning. But I was about to play something tonight,
    I suppose it will be lazy YouTube night, haha.

    I still think I have a crush on Agnetha. :)

    Also a note to the group A-ha and Take on me, still a song I love.

    Morten Harket, lead singer, is the only person in pop history that can reach 4 octaves.

    It was either Ed Beach or Strenger; in the livestream where flooding was shown off, they denied wonders are ever affected.
    Nothing about the achievement's wording is a reason to even suspect that wonders can become disabled, so the Word of God remains authoritative.

    Flooded tiles can be saved with Flood Barriers, but submerged tiles cannot be redeemed.

    Or A Man A Plan A Panama Canal, at least

    It's a rather complicated palindrome.

    A man a plan a canal Panama/ amanap lanac a nalp a nam a

    I added the phrase and the reversal to my previous post. Do you see it now?

    Palindromes can make good fodder for achievement titles. In addition to "A man, A plan, Panama." in any game with Napoleon, who could resist "Able was I ere I saw Elba"?

    More obscure would be something like "Live on time, emit no evil" for a culture victory in which you generated no grievances during the game.

    And who could forget "oozy rat in a sanitary zoo"? Maybe all achievements should be silly palindromes!

    Problem is quite difficult to maintain them in localized versions...

    As nice as the palindrome is, I must still insist it does not follow canal placement rules :p
