(Just waiting for someone to bet one beer that somebody will take this bet...)
Just to keep track of things in one place I owe 2metra 1 beer because SpAp accepted the peace treaty offer
Well, to keep record, I owe 10 beers to Bistrita for the random hidden order, 2 beers for RB's choice of Pacal, 2 beers for..mmm.. I forgot for what was those, and 1 beer for the 10 gold increase from Pacifism.
So bistrita will be hosting the Team CFC meetup then?
lol, another lesson from this ISDG: Don't bet against bistrita!
Hmm, I also thought that Spaniards would never accept 10 turn NAP and I also may owe 2metra beers for that, although I lost track
Continuing the trend of keeping tabs.
Yossa, do you consider this resolved or do you want to wait after the game to check UCiv forums about their intentions?
Oh, I completely forgot about that
Yeah, you definitely win that one. That is one ale redeemable whenever we cross paths, so let me know when you're in LA!
I still don't understand why people live in America... tornadoes and a government (+ everything weird inbetween) that does not care. Why? Can anyone explain?
I think the main reason people live in the United States (or anywhere FTM) is because that is where they were born/where their parents chose to raise them. I'm not trying to be a smart@ss, I honestly just think that it's really that simple for most people.
It's tough to expect people to up and leave the country they grew up in where their family, friends, hometown, language, favorite foods, culture, church, college, job etc are... regardless of volcanos, tornados, earthquakes, blizzards, tsunamis, hurricanes, fascists, racists, sexists, bigots, criminals, communists, socialists, capitalists or anything else they don't like... Home is home
Not only that, but even within a country, people very seldom move far away. Most people live their lives within 100 km or so radius of the place they where they were born.
I'm pretty much rootless, so there is nothing called home and I find it comfortable. Tomorrow I may be sleeping on your couch suddenly
I was not born in US and I live here and do not have plans to go back to Europe anytime soon, although I miss my country a lot. In my case, it was not planned, I came here for an open-ended work contract that kept being extended . In my case, I guess convenience was the main reason, and more than 10 times as high salary for doing almost the same job I was doing in my country, only more interesting Tornadoes are very local, of course, my father who has been visited with me for more than 1.5 years total in the 10 years I have been living in US really wanted to see a tornado, but even though we traveled a lot within US I was able to treat him only to the dirt devil ;-)
And I actually prefer US style government to European ones, in Europe I was have an impression that they do not treat people as adults. For example, in my country the law is the the doctor has to confirm that you are in shape to do the work you want to do. My sound nice but I found it rather annoying and condescending, and in practice it was pure formality anyway, even if there were genuine health considerations related to the job.
And the simplest answer, Arki, is that if there were not good reasons to live in the US, there were not be some many immigrants flocking there Former Soviet Union had the opposite problems, a lot of people wanted out, but you need a special "exit visa" to do so :-( And when one guy - If I remember born in West Berlin - asked for a political asylum in Soviet Union, he was accepted, but the put him into a closed psychiatric ward immediately ;-)
Come and visit US one day, it is very different than what it appears to be in the movies
Do you got a couch? Btw, I am not thinking about movies... I am watching and reading news.
Btw: 2 Beers on us not caching in The Pyramids in our Succession Game. I don't think we make it. Anyone dares to counter?
Funny you mention that, because I will soon move back to stay permanently within 20 miles (32 km) of my birthplace after living hundreds of miles away for years.
I live at least 2000 km from where I am born. Never going back
I am putting 2 beers bet that before this turn ends, we will have a mail from French asking us what we want.
That won't happen, so I counter that one
Arki wins 2 beers from me, it is our half of the timer and we have no letter from French.
Now I got a reason to travel to Bulgaria!
