talking about TWG, I have an idea for a theme but it isn't really complete and I don't have time for hosting.

It would be a beatles themed TWG. Instead of wolves, you'd have blue meanies who are undercover.
some roles i thought of:
blue meanies= these are the wolfs and get a kill every night.
mother superior= the GA, can protect one person at night.

I also thought of some items:
maxwell's silver hammer= if you possess this you can make a kill during the day wich will replace the normal lynching.
glass onion= if you possess this you can look through it at night and it will reveal the role of person you are looking at with it.

everybody also gets to choose a character from the beatles catalogue (e.g. eleanor rigby, rocky raccoon, mean mr. mustard). and the murders and meetings would take place in places like penny lane and strawberry fields.

If anybody wants to develop this further into a decent TWG feel free to do so
You're so vain, you probably think this sig is about you

So in my class on the Executive branch, we were given a game to play where you try to get your candidate elected. The rules are simple, money is spent on each state in various forms, states with no money spent on them cannot be won, and states favorable to your ideology create multipliers for the money spent in them. The obvious strategy is to consolidate your base, try to undermine theirs, and then duke it out over the battle ground states (Ohio, Florida, etc). Both sides write down all their spending, then the game is played out based upon the initial setup (it's more meant to be fun than accurate).


I was assigned to elect a Republican into office, and I decided to take a different approach. I spent no money in any states outside of the North East (the Virginias was the but off), and those poured all of my assets into his strongest base. I'm guessing that he won't expect that much put into the area, and I should be able to sweep the region, but it means I will lose every other state, and thus the election. However, I figure that any candidate, regardless of what they call themselves, who takes the inter-mountain west, the south, as well as middle America, while losing the North East, is far more Republican than the candidate who loses the rest of the nation while sweeping the Democratic strongholds. Thus, as far as I'm concerned, I will win.

I doubt the teacher will agree with my reasoning, but I'm looking forward to class today to see the look on their faces!

Strange, just tried speedtest.net from work and it's been stuck at the start of "upload" for several minutes, no activity. :?:

DSL reports speed test works though. Image

A. Using the wrong font.
B. Using the wrong image hosting site.
C. Using a location that's already been used.

:P

I didn't even use a font, I just drew it in paint with my mouse. Haha

Mars has already been used?
Darn.

It's obviously fake anyways, who cares that I used imageshack?

Because that site is evil and should be avoided at all costs.
