all beliefs are in equal parts heretical that label others as such.

no greater harrisy exists then the mesaginy of saul of tarsus.

anchovies love pasta and olives however.

no idea about paradox games, which is probably obvious from the above.

just hunch back flute players, dancing raindrops, and snerks riding unisnerkles.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

Im doing a lot better in this attempt at a british campaign in ironman, nabbed the Do you Mined achievement, though the 1000 mines ive placed in the Eastern North Sea have failed to sink literally a single ship for the half a year they have been there, British Engineering am i right, or they are just broken in this expansion at the moment.

Ive done a lot better in Africa against what appears to be literally the entire german tank army but fuel once again, brings everything i try to do to a halt, with only my convoy defense fleets in action, it will take me 5 years to get a full stockpile again, and putting any airwings into action removes all the fuel i have left. Mass producing new refineries and silos seems to be doing nothing to help. So my army is acting on its own now because the navy and airforce literally cant do anything, god damn it.

I honestly feel like that eddie izzard sketch on ww2 for everything except my army lol

Seduction is fucking annoying. It just spams the same "Oh they're too far away"/"Oh I don't have time"/"Oh they're never around"/etc. messages like non-stop, probably hoping I'll just stop.

Like, fuck no. I specifically selected this specific character to seduce; why would I want to back out? Fuck off and let me seduce them, Jesus.

Even the apologists of industrialism have been obliged to admit that some economic evils follow in the wake of the machines. These are such as overproduction, unemployment, and a growing inequality in the distribution of wealth. But the remedies proposed by the apologists are always homeopathic. They expect the evils to disappear when we have bigger and better machines, and more of them. Their remedial programs, therefore, look forward to more industrialism.

Yeah I never use it myself, personally. I mean it's good for increasing your fertility, and there's a neat little event where you can take on a secret lover who will help you uncover plots better, but other than that it's not very appealing to me.

I only use it when I'm playing gay characters as a form of RP. My current Emperor is gay and has good Intrigue so I'm using it for him just because. I mean, when there's no chance of having bastards then the risk of discovery for infidelity is reduced substantially. Plus it pretty much nullifies the fertility nerf that the Homosexual trait gives you.

I don't recall if I've posted this before in a previous thread or not.

The background. Two friends and I playing the Cold War mod for Hearts of Iron 4, forming an alliance of imperial powers. We got into war with the Cominform, which was the Warsaw Pact nations and then Communist China joined in. We had a front line from the Pacific ocean to the Baltic sea.

So, in my Eire game, I have elective monarchy in place. And the only other electors are two independent petty kings who hate me. And I don't know if this is just their way of fucking with me, but they keep swapping their votes, from voting for themselves (that is, each one is voting for himself) and both voting for my son (who I am not voting for), so the heir position keeps switching between my eldest daughter and my son. And yet, despite their apparent ability to work together, at least for a week, they have never, not once, just both voted for one of them, even though it would dethrone my dynasty. AI logic is some weird shit.
