We don´t celebrate Thanksgiving - but we have at last Cyber Monday on Amazon now!

Speaking of Germany beating France, what happened to Poland? I've got relatives there.

You're just going to have to make more Poles (Phunny - you can laugh.).

I lived 3 levels down and a short distance (spinward) from The Imperial Palace.

And Trantor is still not on your list!. I'M WAITING.

Never mind, I'll settle for अमेरिका के संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका as where I live now. (Forget Klingon, I like Hindi better)

Is there a good side and a bad side?



And I'm from the planet Trantor in the Galactic Center. It's a whole world covered in a metal building. How could you leave that one out?

I'll just post that where I live now, Erewhon.

What! That's not there either? And to think that I thought that you were a nice person!

attention, attention, professional agitator here!!!

Like I need more stress right now.

Tell you what. Poland borders Germany, have them sign in there.

I'd suggest Russia, Belarius, the Ukraine, The Czech Republic or Slovakia, but those aren't listed either!

You could cut your work down if you can inspire another Napoleon to take over Europe. But this time have him wait for spring before visiting Russia. Get a Greek to take over Eurasia, etc.

Or take the easy way out and just call the whole darn thing Pangea, and tell everyone to stop picking on you.

Now, thats an interesting concept of the world.

With everything squished together like that, all the resources might be evenly divided.

Wonder what people would find to fight about then?

Oh, look!!

Canada is ahead of both England AND Australia....not that I'm keeping count or anything....

And poor France........just lagging behind, even tho I went to both the French and German forums to invite them personally......in French and German, no less.

Of course, using babylon and google translators, who knows WHAT I said!

You probably insulted the French members' families and then invited the German forum to invade Poll-land!

Careful. She might show you the sun and we all know what that does to native-born Trantorians .
