The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

Haha, yea. Gandhi is exceptionally hard to declare war on. In my first game i was against Genghis Khan. He declared war on some City states that i was aligned with so i went back at him. Got a peace for one of his cities and a bout 50 turns later he tried it again so i took his capital. the AI is half decent!

Personally, I didn't touch CiV 5 much beyond release, I didn't like it very much. I've been told the expansions make it decent so I'll probably try it again once I pick them up, but I have other games I'd prefer to play/get right now.

All the expansions do is add a couple of new scenarios and maybe new civilizations, but that's all.


By the way, who's planning on getting RTW 2? I can't because my PC isn't very powerful and would probably not run Rome 2 smoothly.

I will be pre-ordering very soon. I WANT THOSE GREEKS!

I have my plan organised:

2) go to my dad's work where my mother would have picked up my copy and install it on my computer which shall also be waiting.
3) install and play tutorial
4) take computer home
5) play until about 12pm
6)(i have Wednesday's off) wake up at 9am
7) breakfast
8) Rome 2 Marathon until 8pm

Decent plan i think

I've just seen your photo online - looks pretty sweet. If I ever went larping it'd totally be historical. Guy I mentioned before has invited me a few times, but the problem with doing fantasy larping is that you have to spend a lot of time with the kind of people who do fantasy larping.

It was definably leaning to fantasy, with most of the enemies' flavour feeling like they came out of a warhammer sourcebook, but there was also inter faction stuff too.

It was like being in a computer game which had a million and one plots, all of which work against each other. The other players are mostly better than you, most of the time not because they have powered builds but because they're better at swinging a sword or are in groups they've worked with before, which seems fair, but when teamed up with others and not being a hero when a newbie can do some damage and feel valid.

I actually spent most of my time gathering information, most of which was because I was completely new and had to ask a lot of questions to make sense of things. When commanders wanted to know what was going on, then, I usually had a ton of information they weren't previously aware of, which was nice

Historical re-enactment somehow sounds much more respectable... even though I'd wipe the floor with most of the re-enactors I've met on their "history". But of course, it's completely different because re-enactors spend most of their time performing for a lay crowd, while larp is more of a closed group...(?)

I aren't really fussed about how respectable it is, it's more that the three people I know who larp are terrible, and they're *very* similar to all the people who were on my CS course who were equally terrible. Stereotypical nerdcore types are are just the kind of people I hate being around.

It's like with D&D - I like playing D&D but apart from the friends who I first played it with (who now live like a million miles away) I've never found people who both want to play D&D and who I actually get on with.

I wouldn't be too sure about that. The Royal Navy (although powerful) is a shadow of its formal self (no full blown aircraft carriers for a bit yet!)- its army would need time to mobilise and equip. The British would need American support to pull of a sea invasion of Spain at all. Not to mention British shipping to Gibraltar has to go all the way around the coast of Spain with the threat of bombing massive. And don't not give the abilities of the Spanish soldiers no credit.

But that is just my two cents. And count me out in a Gibraltar game- it would be a kafuffle.

I'm inclined to think that this is all posturing and that no military action will ever come of it. Besides, as both members of NATO, I would expect the U.S. to step in before any such action was even seriously considered. After all, the U.S. doesn't want its allies engaging in squabbles between themselves.

Spain thinks the time is right now that Margaret Thatcher is dead. I'm thinking it would be as sad an affair as Parsley was if they did anything; Iwo Jima with The Muppets. You'd think that if the residents of Gibralter wanted to be part of Spain they would have voted to be so in the, how many years has it been exactly?

Ouch. I know how that feels. I remember before I learned to put my wrist guard on properly and to turn my wrist how many marks I got. Big learning curve between 10lb youth practice bow and 30-35lb target bow. Nice little arc-shaped welts all along my left wrist...

I'm looking to move up to 45-50lb ATM (have to keep it low, the ranges here would not be pleased if I showed up with a 90lb+ longbow, also arrows aren't exactly cheap) but, as always, the place I want to buy from is all sold out as soon as I decide I want to buy. Arrows I can get at allwoodarrows.com, not too pricey, but woodbows.com does not want to cooperate.

If the Spanish could be absolute dears and save any open warfare until 2017, when the ships required to recivilise them will be ready, that would be terribly grand of them and we'd appreciate it. Until then it's limited to burning down Cadiz for the umpteenth time. In Victoria II terms, they're trying to trigger a crisis to regain their core province, but they will need backing from one of the eight Great Powers (in the 2013 game, this is the USA, Russia, China, Japan, India, Britain, France and Germany) in order to escalate the crisis and gain consessions

I've heard quite a lot of terrible stories about life in Spain from people I know there. More than half of under-25s are unemployed, and the policemen have set quotas on how much money they have to raise through fines in order to keep their jobs, allegedly.

I was kidding about an actual game. It is amusing to imagine what a war would be like, but I think it's fairly obvious such a thing could never take place. I find it hard to consider Gibraltar as anything other than a British colony on Spanish territory - despite it having been British longer than Spanish, if you think about the dates of the reconquista... It's just so obviously Spain. But of course it's no good telling the Brits that, let alone the people of Gibraltar. All the same I would very much like to amend its constitutional status.

Eight great powers? Japan won't touch anything outside their sphere of influence, they're still effectively an American protectorate; China could but also really doesn't, India is bound to support Britain and thus leaves all that to us, and Germany's army could fit in an egg cup. That leaves the traditional world powers of the USA, Britain, France and Russia... of these, Britain is one of the disputing parties, France backing Spain would only make us more determined... so it would depend on the USA. Putin probably couldn't care less, but Russia's links to the City of London make me suspect he would back Britain if either - especially if the USA backed Spain in its self-righteous role as Overseer of Global Decolonisation for Everyone Everywhere Whether They Like It or Not.

... this is a fairly interesting thought experiment.
