Because I need to geek out, and I'm at work on Turkey Day . . .

You land in my latest CivV bizarro world. I am playing Egypt, who shares a continent with Denmark and China. Some time in the Classical Era, Denmark, which didn't have access to its Berserkers yet, tried to start some shit with me. He must have been overconfident from removing China from contention. After my shore defenders picked his invading force clean and the target city was on the verge of building walls, he sued for peace, offering me Beijing. Because I didn't need the happiness hit right then, I Liberated it. China was back in the game, technologically backward but back.

Fast forward to about the 15th-16th century, and I have Knights and Trebuchets, Pikemen, and a few Musketmen. I proceed to de-liberate Beijing and come down like a swarm of Egyptian locusts on Denmark. Mind you, i have Total Kills turned on just to make things interesting, so I still have a Chinese naval unit pounding on Beijing, until I bring my Frigates around the horn to make her sue for peace.

Meanwhile, I think the other continent has taken a similar turn. The Mayas don't have much, Sweden is over there along with England and Poland if I remember correctly.Poland and England tend to fight, and I'm pretty sure the Mayas are without a city like China. Once I unite my continent, my trade goes entirely overseas, where I must take care not to get owned by Queen Elizabeth's Ships of the Line.

"My name is Trisha Hershberger, and my eyes are up here." That should be your intro from here on.

I don't know where to share longer, deeper thoughts lately. There's always the corpse of LJ, and is anyone on Dreamwidth any more? They keep sending me updates. Where is your favorite blogging presence? Wordpress? Blogger?

"'It's wedded to an epistemological humility,' he told me, 'that proceeds from the assumption that we don't know as much as we think we do, and so you have to be really cautious about policies that seek to completely reshape the world. It's better to run trials and experiments, as John Stuart Mill talked about. The whole point of America-and this is an admixture of Saul Bellow and Heidegger and Jim Morrison lyrics-is that it's in a constant state of becoming, constantly changing and mongrelizing. We're doing exactly what free minds and free markets allow you to do. Part of why I'm a libertarian is that if you restrict people less, interesting stuff happens.' - Nick Gillespie

This is what it sounds like when a libertarian cannon goes BOOM and fires for effect. This is exactly my argument with much of the Left. They claim to be so smart and so educated, but the wise man knows that he doesn't know what he doesn't know.
An excerpt from Robert Draper's August 7 cover story in The New York Times Magazine about the ascendance of libertarianism.

Only in Canada? Really?
No one has written a Wikipedia article on Dominion Arms' Grizzly 8.5 magfed shotgun yet, and no one has given me a Dominion Arms Grizzly 8.5 mag fed shotgun yet, so all I can really say about it is that from the very first time we locked eyes online, I
