I seem to remember a Twitter post joking once that humanity's "good" is whatever helps us make as many stellar megastructures shaped like dinosaurs with lasers on their heads as possible. In a vague sense, I think this is about right, actually. Humanity's goal is to do as much weird, amus...

Soda and pop aren't really slang, just regional lexical items. Pop is slang, but soda is not, because "soda" comes from the sodium compound that carbonates the water (ie: Club Soda). The origin of "pop" varies depending on the source -- some say it comes from the "pop"...

Being trans myself (and at 33 going on 34, probably considered a "previous generation" of trans people), I still in 2019 don't understand why "transgendered" with the -ed suffix isn't okay, syntactically or otherwise. Well they totally do not get it. Being transgender and a man o...

My belief is that: 1) if a religion attempts to explain a scientific occurrence that hasn't yet been explained (and even a number that have) as "something God did", then it's incompatible with modern society 2) if a religion completely denies the existence of a proven scientific occurrence...

I'm using the DonJon world generator to come up with ideas for what I'm going to use for my nation's layout, but haven't settled on one yet.
Once I do, it's gonna take a while for me to apportion the areas within and name them. :P XD

It's amazing how much more lively and intelligent (or at least intelligent-sounding) discussion/debate there is when you-know-who isn't around to be an obnoxious single-note jackass.
kudos :clap:

WOW, it took me a while to get through all the pages here. And by the time I finished, Trad was gone! I think it bears mentioning that not ONE single person in the entire 30 pages of this thread has said that they agree (at least, not 100% anyway) with Traditionalism on his specific belief in God an...

I haven't yet divided any of my 3 Nations into individual States yet, but right now I'm posting as a reminder to myself of this thread so I can post when I DO do that.

While I consider many moral codes mostly subjective, I do happen to believe that there is one objectively universal "correct" moral on Earth, and that is "Don't be a-holes to each other", which is disappointingly not held by enough people. I think *most* (not all) of the rest is ...

Can we get a "text size" option in our settings?

I would like to be able to set the size of the text that shows up on my NS's main page to something smaller without having to change my global browser font-size settings. It's a little thing, I know, but it makes a difference to me to be able to change what size my text is. I hope I'm not the only p...

So my question would be: what's the reason for having the Nuclear Option being offered with EVERY non-Nuclear choice? I mean, I'm at the "they surrendered, now what?" branch, and it's STILL asking me if I wanna nuke them, even though I kinda made it clear with every choice beforehand that ...

While I'd love to see it in physical form, my Jykku flag is a shopped version of a thing by EgoRaptor, and while Arin Hanson's generally a pretty chill dude, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't appreciate somebody stealing his content for use like that.

I have an issue with the new version of the Liberal and Conservative themes, as well as with the Antiquity and Mobile themes. For the Liberal and Conservative ones - I don't like that the "Switch" button is on the left-hand side of the screen, and then the actual login popup is on the righ...
