    Isn't Bohemian HRE completely pointless since you're giving up a free German culture union for a West Slavic culture union, which is completely pointless since you don't have any other West Slavic pops but you sure as hell have every single stripe of German pop.

    I had the entirety of the West Slavic culture group, and idea groups for accepting 90% of the German groups.

    EDIT: I had intended to keep the vassal swarm, but we were wrapping up so I just hit the button.

    How are we not keeping you in the loop Joan? If you're feeling that way, you should drop by #nes more often!

    Academic institutions are lies, the earth is flat, god is dead. I advocate running screaming into the forest and asserting your dominance over the local squirrel population.

    You humano-centric imperialist! Squirrels have a beautiful culture of their own you're oppressing! All humans should just kill themselves. Every human is guilty! Their mere existence is an acceptance of human priviledge!

    Well, you know, the last three sentences aren't all that wrong. Maybe the one about all humans killing themselves.

    Well I for one am excited at mankind's efforts and ability to stick mother nature's face into the earth, boot on her neck, while we fleece every ounce of potential profit from her once-virgin lands that we can reach. Thank you kindly for my dose of human privilege, fellow human under subserviant situation known as employment, NOW GIVE ME ANOTHER! And make it flashier too! *sip*

    It's always amazing to see how some people really manage to always be pet and cuddled by institutions throughout their entire lives, such that when people criticize institutions (the state, organized religion, racial identities, etc.) you get this "Yeah well, you just ... uh, you just want to save the squirrels, or some stupid crap like that, you loony!"

    I'm not a bleeding heart y'all. I'm just angry :rolleyes:

    You know, I was going to try to say something funny and relevant, but honestly I can't see how your statement is relevant at all. EDIT and in fact am somewhat baffled by it.

    You didn't criticize any institution and advocated squirrel imperialism, I posted a sarcastic response (even remembered to add the /s at the end of it) as befitting some rhetoric I see floating around in general, Tolni posted something bouncing off mine and I clarified something closer to my actual position, except with humorous overstatement to match the mood.

    Unless someone responded like that "in real life", and you're trying to take out your frustrations with humor here and I missed it? So it wouldn't be relevant to the back and forth above your post, but just something that happened IRL?

    In that case, I hope you come to terms with your anger somehow.

    To be fair, he kind of did

    It seems like Lord was trying to say that school isnt worth it to tolni, and to drop out. Then he got a bit tounge in cheek with the the rest of the post, but the meaning behind it was clear.

    Not going to throw my own hat into the ring in re if I agree with LoE or not, but I wanted to clear up the confusion before things got nastier.

    @Omega124 I'm saying academic institutions are lies, I'm not saying school isn't worth it ;)

    @Terrance888 I appreciate the thought but it's not that serious. I was just riffing off of what JohannaK said. Mostly I don't feel qualified to give advice to @Tolni at all. I think it depends on what your (his) personal situation is. Personally, I think being associated (if just briefly) with higher academic institutions like universities still has certain benefits that don't rely on your getting out with a degree and a job. I'm definitely not telling anyone to just drop out. Sorry to make it political, I wasn't trying to make a political statement in earnest.
