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.'"

I was more concerned about if there was any damage to the bow than my arm but seeing as it's still only about 30lb I don't think there's likely much happened to it, atleast, not that I can see. I wouldn't want to have done the same with a 40lb+ seeing as mine left a nasty enough mark. I usually don't hit my wrist with recurve, it's usually when using longbow I do.

I chose 8 because that's the mechanic in Victoria II.

The USA wouldn't support Spain over Britain and would want a quick end to a dispute between one of the leading members of NATO and one of the somewhat substantial, but weaker, members. So, the conclusion is that, unless Russia sides with Spain, the Crisis would fail to gain interest from the Great Powers.

Gibraltar is just that. It's a British held piece of Spain. It was given to Great Britain in the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 after the War of the Spanish Succession, which saw the Bourbons able to take the Spanish throne as well as the French (it was previously Hapsburg), but the Spanish King renounced all claims on France and vice-versa, which was considered a victory for the Grand Alliance which seeked to prevent a personal union. It was taken by the Royal Marines in 1704, and the treaty confirmed several territorial gains made by the British, Dutch, Savoyards, Portugal and Austria which were made during the war.

I'm not so sure on Russia backing the UK. If they back Spain, they could use that precedent later on reclaiming other formerly Russian territory. There is also the whole national integrity thing to think of. Russia, like Spain, has separatist movements, so that could also be a reason to support them, as those movements would no doubt make use of the hostilities for their own benefit.

They wouldn't need to as Britain is already a GP. But if Russia backs Spain, then other countries that don't like Russia will back Britain in the crisis menu. It's all rather confusing.

I'm inclined to agree with Punic's assessment of Russia's motives. With the Chechens and other separatist movements inside their own country as well as places like Georgia, they're more likely to support Spanish efforts to retake what they could try to claim was their own territory back. After all, the Spanish don't recognize the existence of certain nations, like Kosovo.

Yeah, unlikely to damage a 30lb with dry firing: The biggest risk is to yourself when theres no arrow to help guide the string and it moves erratically, like absentmindedly plucking a guitar string.

That's why I try to get longbows with an arrow rest on them. An extra bit of distance between you, the arrow and the string. Not historically accurate as far as longbows go (technically that makes it a target bow but I'm not looking for historical accuracy: What re-enacting society am I in?) but great for anybody that prefers traditional archery. You should check out woodbows.com and browse for a minute and check back every few weeks if you see something you like. Like I said earlier, it's all sold out right now but it should be back up soon. I'm waiting for the American style target bow to come back up, personally.

Punic, Dom, scruff and I were just discussing our old map game on facebook- about the stuff we would have done next and the like. Lets just say it would have been interesting over in the western half of the Map to continue..

Someone mentioned EU4 and the demo? Playing around with it at the moment. Game certainly looks beautiful, even more so than CK2 perhaps. Still learning some of the basics, like trade, playing as Venice currently, but it seems quite enjoyable so far. Think I enjoy it more than EU3 at the same stage in its development many moons ago, so it should be interesting to see what behemoth spawns with DLC and mods.

I doubt Ed wants to have to deal with the stress of handling the game again, and most of us are too busy with work, studies and other activities to handle something that requires regular attention like a map game on top of everything else.

Looking back at it, I'm honestly surprised you ran it as long as you did, especially with some of the more unrealistic/unreasonable actions/moves that went on (of which I admit I may be guilty of one or two).

@Scenter


Interesting idea, but it would probably be very difficult to manage.


A 'tactical' simulator would be good though, being a commander is better than having to approach things from a Head of State's point of view. And it's much, much more easier to manage.

Oh, and @AE Sorry, thought it was the WW1 one.

it would be the same thing over again. We would get into it- people/ the host would get bored or even more likely- Someone would just blow the world to smithereens because they want something interesting to happen. So count me out.

Hmm, that might be cool. Pick a Battle/ make up one- craft a specific map. Then divide into teams with an overall commander. Each team communicates in private(Email) as to their plans for specific parts of the battle. The commanders then send the host their orders for an hour or 2 periods of the battle- with the actions posted in the forum after both have sent it to the host and the results accompanied with it.
Elaborate and time consuming i know- but that could be fun. Could also have people commanding the wings on each side- with the winners choosing their team and field type next. Could be something to pursue. Hell- i might even have a crack at running it after the 23rd. It would be fun and only require 2 people with others able to join. Could even make a competition- with the teams randomized after a battle and a table of statistics noting the number of victories of each commander.

You did very well Ed. Very well indeed.
