What have you learned today?

Postby Minoriteeburg » Sun Nov 14, 2010 6:12 pm

Today I learned that you can revive a nation and come back to a forum after at least 2 years of absense. I'm back, if anyone on here still remembers me...



So what have you folks learned today? Share it here.

Yesterday I learned most of my friends would rather get drunk than even talk to me.

Every day NationStates tells me I have one issue. I am pretty sure I've got more than that.
