  1. 20 questions! We've played this a few times in slack Somebody is thinking of a person place or thing (we've usually played with people) and everyone else has 20 yes or no questions to figure out what it is.
  2. My vote wasnt actually for bettlejuice >_> I was just running with the joke. I vote Gattaca
  3. I'll take Sweden. First time doing multiplayer so no real opinion on the rules
  4. I think I am going to buy Stellaris. Wednesdays work for me.
  5. Yeah, there definitely have been some, luckily with 0 deaths. Do you know what the time frame is for that 23? According to WSJ 11/180 of the terrorist attacks that have happened since 9/11 have come from the 7 countries.
  6. I'm pretty repulsed by what he has done so far, but none of it has been surpising either. Shame the Democrats had such a weak candidate in Hillary 1) His appointees, I find to be horrific. Putting a climate change denier in charge of the EPA would be laughable if it wasn't so terrifying. Climate change is the biggest threat this country, and the world faces. Putting oil executives in charge of key posts, so much for "draining the swamp". 2) The Wall: Sure lets waste $15 billion on constructing a wall when immigration from Mexico already is and has been on the decline 3) Killing TPP: This is something I actually support 4) Weakening Obamacare: A shame and a move in the wrong direction. This doesn't have any immediate effect but if it continues it will be ironic how it will heavily affect some of Trumps' biggest supporters, poor whites. 5) The travel ban: A continuation of the fear mongering that got him into office. There has never been a fatal terrorist attack by an immigrant of those 7 countries he banned. He conveniently left out countries he has business ties to. The terrorist attacks that do happen in this country result from people who already lived here and were radicalized via online propaganda. Not to mention the overall threat of terrorism is hugely overblown with regards to the actual damage done. There is always room for more anger
  7. I don't know much about Italian History post Roman Empire, so Micchan will have to give you that. But you're right many states considered themself successor of Rome like the Holy Roman Empire. Also when the Western Roman Empire collapsed the Eastern half (which we call the Byzantine Empire) lived on for another 1000 years. They never stopped calling themself Roman even though they controlled no Italian territory. Even Russia tried taking some of Rome's shine by labeling themselves as successors through the Orthodox Church (which was the church of the byzantine empire) and by calling their leader Tsar (Ceasar). Note: Germany did this too with Kaiser. More on this idea of a "Third Rome" can be found on this wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_Rome
  8. So basically, even in modern day Italy there wasn't really a central "ethnicity" in the empire/republic. The basis of the Republic was unifying all the different tribes and different groups. Think of it maybe like modern day UK with a united nation but strong cultural identity among different groups. Being a Roman was just a mark of citizenship and not of background
  9. Is Sterllaris noob friendly? I haven't really played many strategy games outside Paradox ones and the Total War series. Don't think I've ever played it 4x one
