On my drive into the office this morning I got to thinking about how much I hear these various phrases in conversation:
To be honest
To tell you the truth
and I started wondering if we've declined so much as a society that we now have to advise people when we are making a factual or truthful statement. Have we become so good at lying to one another that it is the rule rather than the exception?
Is it so easy to speak in flasehoods and… Continue

I meant to post something a few weeks ago, but real life interfered and now I'm behind.
I love college football. Big school, small schools, intermediate schools. The fans at the games are usually pretty enthusiastic, and the players themselves are trying hard, at the very worst. Only a small proportion of the players will ever make it into the professional ranks, and most of them know it. For those players, they know that college football is, at best, a way to get their degree paid… Continue

Given the recent upsurge in spammers as new members, I'm testing functionality that requires new membership requests be first reviewed and approved by me before they can officially join this network. This will hopefully cut down in the amount of annoying spam posts we have encountered recently. Let see how this feature works out....

Is there any interest out there in a card game of the campaigns of Napoleon?
Briefly, each campaign you are dealt an objective card; your goal is to march to your objective; along the way there are obstacles, enemy formations and other annoyances; when an objective is reached, the campaign is over and points are totaled.
A full game is three campaigns (Austerlitz 1805, Prussian campaign 1806 and the Polish campaign 1806-'07); each campaign takes about 45 minutes to an hour;

The People's Republic suffered a severe famine, due to Mao Zedong's rapid modernization and the… Continue
