I played the Allies and handed the (inexperienced) CP player his rear on a platter. His big issue was in the East, where I isolated and exterminated a large part of the Austro-Hungarian army, after which his southern flank was wide open. He moved stuff from the West front to plug the gap, and managed to hold on in the east - the Germans are tough to crack - but I pushed in the west with the British and French, into German territory. We ended in late 1917 with an autowin for the Allies. I would have won due to VP, but he did firm up at the end.

He wanted to play the Central Powers, so I let him. I probably should have taken them myself.

I personally enjoyed the lost Leni Riefenstahl film that debuted on TV last night. Little long, though. And the costuming was crap.

I think you had to be there at the time - it plays as dated now if you didn't watch it back when it was the best science fiction ever to appear on television. But it's still my favorite.

And check out the look on Delenn's face during the speech. She's like, "holy shit dude."

Actually, I know two or three people that have been successfully converted to this series in the past five years. Faith... Manages!

I swear I would hate the Internet if it weren't for Wikipedia and Snopes.

Watching, slowly, SyFy's Dark Matter. It's a lot like Firefly except without the good actors, quality writing or charm. But I haven't given up on it yet.

That it could well get better is why i haven't given up yet. Lots of shows start rock but get stronger.

Speaking of amazing, redefining covers. I think this is by far the best version of this iconic song.

Overrated. Not a bad restauant, but a terrible _German_ restaurant. Schmidt's sells itself as such, but the best sausage in the place is the distinctly non-German Bahama Mama - which is admittedly very good. And the creampuffs are amazing. The bratwurst, however, is of vending machine quality, and there is simply no excuse for that from a place with the pedigree of Schmidt's
