Total War is probably my favorite franchise of all time. Across the games I own I've easily played 3000 hours. I have 1400 hours in Rome (<3 Roma Surrectum), 1000 on Empire (Darthmod), 580 on Medieval 2 (all TATW), 380 in Shogun 2 (Darthmod), 200 on Napoleon (aaand Darthmod again, with a Prussian ca...

I gotta go with Putin and maybe Merkel, although the latter probably owes her success more to German economic conditions than her actual political acumen. I think Putin handled the Snowden situation superbly, and his ability to maintain his hold on power over a nation of that size and history is imp...

Blarik Odina was not the most heavily decorated of Arda's 25 Knights-Marshal, but he wore his share of metal. Most of his service had been in the Northwatch, where men and machines were always needed to battle off the remnants of Morgoth's orcs. He was still a green recruit at the time of the revolu...

I would be lying if I said the "DI incident" doesn't still rustle my jimmies. Immediately before leaving for work, I had ruled that the word "tranny" wasn't actionable by itself; by the time I returned apparently I had somehow become Public Enemy #1 despite having virtually nothi...

I don't have a problem with market socialism. But, as I understand, no individual markets would really exist in communism. All resources would be shared. Well the way I see it, people are status seeking. It would still be technically communism as the resources are share, however, you'd still get a ...

Because increasing employment did nothing. Because increasing the total amount of money in the hands of workers did nothing. Because more workers with more money buying things in a consumption based economy did nothing. Because we totally paid for WWII as the spending happened. Well to be fair, jus...

Incidentally, the ACA has the potential to end my healthcare benefits through my employer. Our contracts are up for negotiation this year (I work at a UPS hub, so I'm a Teamster) and apparently it might be cheaper for the company to just kill the part-timer's health package, give everyone a one-tim...

Yup. To be honest, I chuckle a bit when I hear conservatives rage about Obama. In 2008 I predicted he would be another business-as-usual president and I was right. My mother can't stand him, and while I'm not exactly a fan myself, I find it hilarious that Republicans suddenly "care" about...

Point of order: any modern president would have passed TARP and the auto bailouts had he been in office at the time. Those were both middle-of-the-road political maneuvers. You mean similar to how any modern president would have equally passed the various spending bills that Obama passed? Yup. To b...

Wow.

I think "Rebuttal" is an overly generous term for how that point was answered.

Naiya sat cross-legged on one of the white couches in her new front room, eating a rice dish she’d experimented with in the kitchen earlier. She’d started with a base of things she’d picked up while in Arda, using the spices and style, and adding a twist of her own with a touch of citrus in with the...

I wouldn't worry about it. Threads can meander; if the 'threadjack' arose out of honest discussion about the OP/topic and stays productive, we may decide not to bother with it.

I'm not saying there won't be plenty (more) of shootsings soon, it really depends on how many nations take an active interest in the Xinguese revolt. Some governments might not care, others might. It's certainly different and more morally ambiguous than the revolt against Morgoth, it could upset ner...

There are a few things that have happened (chief among them being the confrontation between Nadia and Naiya) that required some changes of which I was unsure. Anyway, I've got 2 sc...
