  2. They still have friends. They'll still jump into wars. It might give them a political out to avoid a loosing war, but other than that, it's not functionally much different than having treaties.

  5. I live in Austin, Texas which is definitely facing displacement from gentrification and not abandonment. I agree about historic buildings but it should be limited. For example in Austin, "historic" buildings only have to be 50 years old and they do things like label a house historic because the current mayor grew up in it. NIMBY's often abuse it because they just don't want it to change.
  6. 122. Probably didn't help that I was doing it at 2 AM.
  7. Mostly negative, but it's complicated, depending on how you define gentrification. In many cases it's historically marginalized communities being displaced by rising housing prices. This is often brought about by NIMBYism when generally wealthier folks fight against density in cities and don't allow supply to meet demand, driving up housing prices and pushing the middle class into formally working class areas. That's at least what is happening in Austni. Pro-tip: In city council elections, the candidate most focused on "preserving neighborhoods" is probably a NIMBY and someone you shouldn't vote for.
  8. Hiking. Voted it under walking.

  10. There's a difference being brash and being honest. He's flip flopped quite a bit on immigration, he's just sticking with the current anti-immigrant shtick because it plays well with a lot of racist/xenophobic white people. His scandals aren't generally about his "honesty" unless you mean honest in the sense that he doesn't have a politeness / decency filter to contain his ego and pathological need to strike back at anyone that criticizes him. He's proven time and time again that he's not above flip flopping (he's significantly worse than even Clinton) or spouting complete bullshit.
  11. Which country? I've been on 3 big trips in my life. France and the UK with my family about 10 years ago. A 6 week trip by myself from Turkey->Germany with a bunch of places in between last year. And an 8 week trip to Japan/Taiwan/China/South Korea a few months ago. They were all really great in their own ways. There's somewhat more history in Europe which I like. Asia was more culturally different from the US which I liked. It's really hard to say which I liked better. I just want to highly recommend travel to everyone here! Do it while you're young and can go for several weeks. It's not cheap but it doesn't have to be super expensive, both trips including airfare cost me about $5000 each and you could probably do cheaper (like not eating out for most meals like I did.) Stay in hostels, do your research on cheap airfare and internal travel (busses are cheaper than trains), go minimal on tours and just walk around taking it in. If you have a little extra money, spend it on travelling, not nice cars or nicer housing or other material things.
  12. A week to a few weeks. Fresh water is the main limiting factor initially but you say that's there. The body can go at least a week without food. I don't have any experience hunting or fishing so I'm not sure how that would go. I have experience camping but not foraging. I've never made a fire without matches or a lighter, I'd give it 50/50 that I'd be able to figure out another way successfully.
  13. Skyrim is my favorite.
