    Hey guys, I always like to build each and every WoW (even the useless ones) in my cities, so my flatmate asked me why I did it, after all, you can conquer cities with WoW's later on, right?
    Well, when I'm playing, say, the Germans, and the Americans manage to build the Piramids, I could conquer Washington, but the people living in that city are still ethnic Americans even though they're part of my empire now. I just can't stand the idea of some fat-*** , hamburger-swallowing, ignorant, sunglass-wearing-when-talking, redneck Ammies enjoying the marvelous Piramids in their city, even if they pay taxes to me.
    Does that make me a nazi? Please help me on this one guys!

    No, but you're beginning to sound like a certain European who fantasizes about bombing the crap of out NYC.

    Did you happen to use Americans as the example, or is it part of your statement?

    It no more makes you a Nazi than it makes me a Nazi when I use nukes on civs that don't have gunpowder yet for the sheer joy of it. It is a GAME, dude!

    Good point Fearless. I just wanted to know if I'm the only one doing this (building WoW's in cities which originally belong to my own civ for the reason described above) or if you guys do the same. Sorry if I offended anyonwe, just think of the word "Americans" being displaced with "Babylonians" (there isn't any Babylonians currently browsing, is there..?)

    Well I build the Wonders where I need them the most or where it's easiest.
    I once tried a game with only one city and that one city build all 28 wonders - it was fun trying but it's something that I would do in a real game.

    point 1 all americans kiss my grandfathers glittering toenails.
    2 all ancient wonders are not very interesting so i build king richards first and bang the rest in the sam city. So i mostly end with a city with 18+ wonders.
    point 3 who is mig21

    point 1 I can't believe so many of you don't know who MIG21 is. Doesn't matter now, since he's banned.
    2 All scandanavians were cool until you, Mad Melkor

    Hey hey Vlad, MadMelkor isn't from Scandinavia - he's Dutch = The Netherlands, and that is definitely not part of Scandinavia.
    MadMelkor - you give your country a bad reputation in here - you should be more like Woke23, now there is a cool Dutch guy.

    So i have stirred up some juice here !!
    that is a good thing, but vlad proves it again The Netherlands is NOT in Scandinavia

    And Shadow i would say that beside the fact that i like too give a certain people a kick in the butt so once in a while, and if that is a problem i think one of the moderators will tell me and i will be a very nice guy.
    And why so many people don't know mig21 is easily explained when you look at the time, the people who asked became active here !!!

    Mig21 is a person that had to insult everyone in every post he made!
    and he was strangely fasinated and Idolized a freak called HARDMAN who himself could not spell and called everyone "fag or gay".
    they were both really anoying and seemed to only be here to insult people!

    Mig21 was not as bad as hardman, mig only really started getting anoying when hardman was banned!

    Retraction on my butt kissing post to Macchiavelli, it did seem like you were talking about Americans. Sorry, I should have asked before jumping all over you.
    And MadMelkor, kiss my big American butt. Also, why do your Grandfather's toes glitter? Is there something we should know? Is this a family thing?

    I think I'm just one of the happy few that didn't stop after the Lord of the Rings and also read the Silmarillion, Melkor!

    Sorry about the insults Pale.
    But...I actually do find Americans silly...but then again, so are all foreigners;
    -the Swedish (including the tiny province of Denmark) for being socialist,
    -the Germans, for not daring to cross a pedestrian crossing when the light is red, -the English, for believing they still control an empire (hahaha),
    -the Belgians...hmmmm better not go there, -the French; for not being able to build cars...and so on..

    And we, the mighty Dutch? We'll talk again once we've purchased your countries!

    Hope you guys still like me?
