For the record: I set up the forum and the website for Ralph, and I have not, repeat HAVE NOT pre-banned anyone. Neither has Ralph (who, as best I know, has left the administration section of the board completely up to me - thought he can use it, of course). If anyone gets banned on the new forum, i...

<sigh> So much for the moderator nominations. Looks like the allure of free time not spent moderating the forums wasn't enough to overcome the horror at having me nominated. :lol: Thanks for the nominations, anyway. I'll be going, STRyker; time to see if I'm pre-banned from the new fora. :) Yours t...

1. Bond 26 atoms of Nitrogen into a single molecule.
2. Produce until you're satisfied with the amount.

Congratulations! You've just made the most powerful explosive substance ever formulated in the lab (to the best of my knowledge).

This actually goes towards my point that discontentment and poor living conditions cause violence, not guns or religion. Look at Washington; it has a lot of poor neighbourhoods, uneducated people, and a generally unhappy population outside the actual capital hill area. The factors of a poor standar...

Then there's the benandanti; people who leave their bodies at night, journeying into the underworld to battle the evil witches and preserve the fertility of the farmlands. The men become animals, while the women ride animals. (The witch trials had a field day with them in Italy; in Livonia, not so ...

Arguably, EVERYONE on this board could fail requirement #2. Including you, and including me. It just depends who's judging the requirements.

Wonder how your tailored 'incident' goes off when two ships allegedly of the same navy start duking it out, one claiming the other is an imposter? Soemthing tells me the wheels are about to majorly come off this plan. Worse case the Heglanda gets disabled and captured, allowing the Imperium and Pri...

Not to mention 'where the heck did the water come from and vanish to?' Back in Physical Geography class, I had to do a report on the answer to that. Basically, a scientist pointed out that there was over 10x the volume of Earth's oceans sitting in the mantle and core as steam. And no, the informati...

I looked through my notes and some of the original manuscripts for verse 28 have 8,300 instead of 8,600. The 22,000 would work with that answer. The Ezra numbers don't present any real issue to me: basically there's a list of stuff, and then they say "This is the total amount of stuff they took", wi...

It would be to our benefit to take a page out of the human's own book on diplomacy. When the humans wish to make treaties with another human kingdom, they send an individual empowered to make decisions on behalf of their respective governments: an ambassador. He usually is accompanied by his family ...

Here's the FBI report broken down by state. And Lazarus is right, to a degree: there are more things than just the availability of firearms that stop crime. The biggest thing, in particular, is the moral and religious quality of the people to stop possible criminals from deciding upon their course ...
