Girl Scout cookies are the universal exception to any diet.


I like the girl scouts, I like giving them money. I like eating thin mints, it's a bad combination.

Much like the local zoo, I do that as well.

I like the cookie program, getting the kids to do a group project to go out and support their organization, teaching the sales and marketing, and to go out and sell, are all positives that I wish to support. The best way to do that is simply for me to indulge in thin mints, giving the kids an immediate reward for their efforts, till my blood simply becomes sugar.

I feel like everyone on NSG is hiding under their bed or something. This is at the top of the "View your posts" list, but everything seems so dead.

But why would I be under the bed? You don't lay under the bed, you lay atop the bed, atop the bedding and with some pillows along the headrest.

What if YOU are the bed and the bed is actually sleeping on top of you?

So someone goes through the list of nations, and does a purge.

When I was modding, I chained my DEATs in a row, on offensive nation names, etc., if my script caught a bunch :blush:

It's been a slow decline for a few years now if I had to put it in a time frame. It happens, it's an old forum, and forums aren't particularly the height of fashion themselves.

That's not to speak of the overall health of the site, mind. Gameplay looks like it's still doing okay from an outside perspective.
