Civilization II

-The ice caps have melted over 20 times (somehow) due primarily to the many nuclear wars. As a result, every inch of land in the world that isn't a mountain is inundated swamp land, useless to farming. Most of which is irradiated anyway.

-As a result, big cities are a thing of the distant past. Roughly 90% of the worlds population (at it's peak 2000 years ago) has died either from nuclear annihilation or famine caused by the global warming that has left absolutely zero arable land to farm. Engineers (late game worker units) are always busy continuously building roads so that new armies can reach the front lines. Roads that are destroyed the very next turn when the enemy goes. So there isn't any time to clear swamps or clean up the nuclear fallout.

-Only 3 super massive nations are left. The Celts (me), The Vikings, And the Americans. Between the three of us, we have conquered all the other nations that have ever existed and assimilated them into our respective empires.
I've been playing the same game of Civilization II for almost 10 years. This is the result.

Paper size

Many paper size standards conventions have existed at different times and in different countries. Today there is one widespread international ISO standard (including A4, B3, C4, etc.) and a localised standard used in North America (including letter, legal, ledger, etc.). The paper sizes affect writing paper, stationery, cards, and some printed documents. The standards also have related sizes for envelopes.

i can summarize Group C thusly: you should cheer for Ireland and not for Italy.

from the easiest to...

THE HARDEST. This is where the big dogs play poker. This ain't the kiddie pool. This is where big ol' dogs play poker in the deep end of the pool. welcome to your OFFICIAL 3E GROUP B PREVIEW AND ROOTABILITY THING Poor Denmark. In group A they would actually be right in the mix but here we got what are probably the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the whole tournament in The Netherlands and Germany and Portugal is no slouch either. I guess It will be the Neths and the Germs in some order getting out. You should cheer for the Dutch, they're orange. Cheer for Denmark, ya know, rootin for the underdog is popular these days. Do what you want, i don't care. Germany isn't really that likeable but they're not actual nazis or anything. Portugal are greasy and they have Cristiano Ronaldo. 1. neth 2. den 3. germ 4. port

flags: they're all pretty good.

nevar forget

hey remember when...

I did that flag thing for the world cup? I'd do something like that for the Euros but I hate the blogger layout so much now that I don't know if I could stand it. Instead, I'm doing this! Group A starts today so here's your official 3E GROUP A PREVIEW AND ROOTABILITY RANKINGS. Anyway we got Poland and Greece kickin it off and then Russia and the Czech Republic in the afternooncap. This has gotta be the easiest group. Gotta be. None of these teams are really that good. Greece is probably the best. Poland is at home but it probably won't matter. I'm going to pick Greece as group winners with the Czechs runnin up. As far as who you should cheer for, Greece used to be deplorable in their tactics and were unwatchable at the last Euros. I hear tell they're better now but they're still hairy. They have funny names though so that's something to think about. I'm biased toward Poland, being 1/8th Polack and all. I kinda like Russia. I don't know about the Czechs. As a 1/8th Slovak, I don't trust em. So rootability will go (i guess) 1. poland 2. russia 3. greece 4. czechs. there you go!

ps if we were doing the flag thing, Russia would win and Greece would pip Poland for runner up.

Sports conspiracies

Maybe I know exactly how many envelopes accounting firm partner Jack Wagner conspicuously bangs against the side of the clear plastic drawing cylinder. (One, and only one.) Maybe I've committed to memory the precise moments when Stern appears to thumb the bent corner of the winning envelope he's plucked from the cylinder, after grabbing and flipping and discarding two others. Maybe I can tell you that upon exposure to room temperature of 70 degrees, a plain manila envelope stored in a home freezer remains cold to the touch for 52.3 seconds.

None of this makes me crazy.

No, a crazy person would accept the lottery at face value. A crazy person would review the entire fortuitous chain of events that produced Patrick Ewing, New York Knickerbocker, and chalk everything up to dumb luck. Coincidence, even.

A sane person doesn't believe in coincidence.
