    I kind of want to do something loosely based off the old Revolution America idea. Everyone would be a Governor of a State of their choice and they could pick between 1: Democratic 2: Republican 3: Socialist Party 4: Nationalist Party and the background is the south is ready to secede again and start a second civil war so each state will have three options to choose from 1: Stay loyal to the Union 2: Stay Neutral or try to Leave Peacefully (There will be laws put in place to make it hard to leave without a lot of burden of debt) 3: Join the Resistance. Each person will start out as a Governor of the State they choose and this will be a full on "Second Political Sim" like Capitol Hill but different and I will be hiring people to help me build the idea and the forums up but I do want this to remain hosted on TedderVision. Please reply if interested in playing a game similar to this so I can gauge interest.

    Well, you won't die without Web access. They have these things made out of cardboard with sheets of paper in them on the big long metal things off to the side at the public library where the computer kiosks and wi-fi café are. They're called "books" and that's how people broadened themselves before there was an Internet. A first class airline ticket costs more than a Business class or Coach ticket. Should the government force airlines to charge the same for all seats?

    I'd like to run a small divided U.S. game where each person can choose a color and come up with a new government and play as the president and legislature (if appropriate) , they are also responsible with naming their new nation and more. i will play the light blue which will represent what is left standing of the old United States. We'd need a sign up subforum, a announcements subforum and one for each colored region which we would request later after applications have been approved.

    This sounds like it would make things more fun and also realistic

    I use the term anti-abortion instead of "pro life" in order to specifically focus on the issue of abortion and avoid linguistic semantics. I believe that life starts at conception as defined both by science and metaphysics. As such I believe that no human being can be denied the basic right to life that is guaranteed under the U.S constitution and basic natural rights.

    Well, I don't really hold with resolutions as such, but I will offer a few comments about the year closing and the upcoming one. -It was a year of endings. I'm sure everybody noticed this Parker isn't a Veteran. 2017 was the last complete year I will wear the Nation's cloth; I have reached mandatory retirement. And it was the first complete year we were without "Richard Candler." VUSA vets will remember he was a memorial to a very close RL friend of mine that passed on in 2016. Sim-wise, this Parker only shares a name with Parker 1.0-5.0. I retired from simming as I got tired of fighting with the Cool Kids and being a Party of One. Thinking I'll see how far I can go playing within the rules instead of just ignoring them when I think they're stupid.

    Actually, the national polls at the Presidential election were pretty good. The issue was in the way the media presented what a small popular vote lead actually means in an election that isn't decided by popular vote. On the subject of what we over here call the "Shy Tory Factor", it is sometimes the case that online and automated polls show a different result to in-person polls, although the size of that issue is disputed, and those types of polls are not necessarily more accurate due to other factors such as low response rate. I'm a maths and stats guy, so I'm a bit nerdy about this sort of stuff!

    I want to formally apologize to @Kyle Fitzgerald and @Shiggy for the way I behaved last round. I don't apologize for making a third party because I think it was fun (at least for those involved) but I do want to apologize for the way I left the party and for any hard feelings. To answer any questions, no I still don't intend to play next round but that has nothing to do with the player base and everything to do with how Tedder is choosing to run this game and we've had discussions about this. When the time comes Tedder is ready to fully commit to running this site as a Gov Sim and he hires a team of dedicated Admins I would be happy to either be one of the Admins or a player. Either way my involvement going forward is entirely based on whether or not Tedder chooses to take his Govsim seriously.

    Made this last weekend. Rum icecream 2 cups heavy cream 1 cup whole milk 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar, divided 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg 2 large eggs 1/3 cup dark rum Equipment: an ice cream maker PREPARATION Bring cream, milk, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and nutmeg to a simmer in a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add cream mixture in a slow stream, whisking. Return to saucepan and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until mixture coats back of spoon and registers 175°F on an instant-read thermometer (do not boil). Immediately strain custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a metal bowl. Stir in rum and chill custard at least 6 hours. Freeze in ice cream maker, then transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden, about 2 hours.

    Always thought it would be fun to play a made up country at a founding where you didnt play a person but a political party and lead it in its way into the future. a mix of war,politics, briberly ,media and everything else in between that you can roleplay out.

    I was thinking of using a mocked up version of Ancient Greece -- obviously, it would be too difficult to find the kinds of statistics I would need to be able to make it truly historically accurate, but I could create a set of statistics based on broad generalizations which would apply to each of the various countries. I hadn't really thought of the idea of using the era transposed onto a fictional world which might help alleviate some of the realism issues. I'll give it some thought and I'm open to any kind of suggestions anyone might have.

    I'm thinking on a Roman Republic simulation which would combine character-based RPG stat elements with political and military simulation. Still thinking on it, though. Another idea which might garner some interest and is probably more fleshed out would be a nationsim type of thing set in Ancient Greece. Players would choose a Greek city-state and submit actions as well as responses to "scripted" (by the admin) events. I would operate this game in a sort of turn-based way saying that each turn would last three days; actions must be submitted as well as responses to the private and public events of the turn. At the end of the turn, a list of results would be released (some privately and some publicly) and would effect future events and results.
