  1. "Simply put, if you’re attracted to ideas that have a good chance of being wrong, and if you’re motivated to prove them right, and if you have a little wiggle room in how you assemble the evidence, you’ll probably succeed in proving wrong theories right." Kettlerian methodology.
  2. Truth and Foxnews do not mix: Their headline right now: URGENT: Nuke Meltdown in 3 Reactors Of course following the link leads to an article fanning the flames for a meltdown with cherry picked quotes to pre-report the catastrophe that it is not.
  3. John Kettler - aka 'Captain Hindsight'. http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/360430/captain-hindsight
  4. With all the Western Leaders demanding Ghadafi stand down, seems to me they are painted into a corner requiring action. As to moral outrage; yeah we would have to go to war all the time, and some of that would be with ourselves.
  5. Panzer/88 etc are being redone. Google up GMT Games Panzer.
  6. Now that I have those keylogs, I can now get into the Nazarctica Base. Thanks, John!
  7. Oh, hell, I can find these things when I want to. I bet a couple of dozen are in my yard under rocks or in the brick pile. I do kill them each time I see them, and I am very careful to be on the lookout. Here in the Carolinas, pretty darned common. When I used to do apt Maintenace and had to turn off the water, step one was to torch the water shut off box before I reached in to turn the valve handle.
  8. Yun is a fellow IT worker who is now in China for a month to visit family. Before he left, folks were asking him about souvenirs from China. It go tiresome. Eventually Yun told folks 'Go to Wal Mart'.
  9. I grow flowers - cut flowers is MURDER. Really - would you hand your GF the cut off head of a kitten to put on display? So, we take these pretty and healthy bits of nature, cut their heads off, and display the corpses to 'brighten' up the room and signify 'attraction'. Crap.
  10. http://****mykidsruined.tumblr.com/ Too funny! Dang it - seems the BBS software here does not like sh!t. so, just go replace those astericks in the above url with sh!t - and replace the ! with i. Jeeesh! A wargame forum that screens out the word sh!t? you gotta be f^cking kiddin' me....
  11. http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1935115 This video is both humorous and shocking. A spoof of Inglorios Basterds French Villager Hiding Jews Act.
  12. Had a friend in high school - Paul Bates. We called him 'Master Bates'.
  13. Enjoy this guy's reviews - he nails it... http://www.youtube.com/user/RedLetterMedia#p/u/7/uJarz7BYnHA
  14. What the hell!!!!!???? http://www.boingboing.net/2010/02/17/school-used-student.html I guess this is pro safety - no privacy and lets hope you are not caught doing the nasty at home...by perv school admins...
  15. Thanks, John! Though after reading what I just did about the attack at Fort Hood report and everything esle in recent terror news and the US, I can't help but think we are acting like we are ashamed to defend ourselves. Maybe we should have our soldiers and politic ans sport these Scarlet 'D's on their lapels.
  16. I have obtained at least 10 games using this system. works very well - only one turkey, and it was not a wargame per se - Blackbeard. This pre-order system is used by others as well - MMP does it, and I got three games last year using theirs.
  17. The Eden War Room is a separate structure - a 800 sqft Apt above a two car garage. No cats live there - they live in our home. Right now, the game of choice is Case Blue, the Enemy at the Gates scenario, covering Operation Uranus. The OCS system is rather good - wish they had some of the titles still in print - all I have are CB, Baltic Gap and DAK. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/29285/case-blue On another table is War Between the States - a Decsion Games remake of the SPI monster covering the ACW. Favorite short plays abound - I really like CDGs - Card Driven Games - Wellington, Kutuzov, Wilderness War, Empire of the Sun, etc... and I like Operational Level Games in general, then strategic, and the occasional tactical. We have 3 regular players, including me, and 3 other irregular players, and an extended group of 6 more in the area. Almost every Saturday is a gaming today, and one night a week with my best friend. John, we don't have DNO, but we do have its offspring - Fire in the East. Many monster games exist in the EWR library - including the biggest of all - DG's War in the Pacific.
  18. Social and wide topics - also, I have a War Room - separate apartment above a garage on my property. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/images/user/143148/wilhammer/page/1?username=Wilhammer
  19. They are playing War in Europe - Westwall was one of the quads. For me, PC gaming is now a rarity - I am full bore back into boardgaming conflicts, and of my 250+ games, half of them are SPI titles.
  20. Some of you all might know this already - it has been making the news at CSW and BGG for a couple of days.
