Good afternoon, I'm Schattenmann, your humble fact-checker for this mini-presentation of Os's World, your number one source for news from that land beyond the clouds, that happy land somewhere over the rainbow where the sky is green, the sun is purple, and trees grow down. Today, we visit that wonderful land again, beckoned by the claims of His Backwardness that:
To do homage to the man, I say : :::::::chortle:::::: : Opposition is Action Let us first channel that biggest jerkwad of phil
I'm looking for a drink
In 2005, I was in Moscow, and we went to this restaurant called Myu Myu; it was like a Russian Golden Coral, buffet, big fiberglass cow on top of the roof.
I accidentally picked up the translator's glass and drank his drink, and he gave me a weird look, like he was expecting something. I asked what it was and he said it was kvass and apologized. I said what for, it was really good, which amazed him.
Now: The drink at Myu Myu was thick, pink-ish, kind of sweet, and a

Your summary gives a half-treatment to the issues.
NPO didn't just "adopt" responsibility for the coalition, they were responsible for the war; they organized it for like 4 months prior. Then they did the exact opposite of take responsibility: They announced that they weren't anyone's boss. Then Brehon disappeared.
NPO is not simply some passive object "example of the conflicts of interest." NPO actively schemed with its Umbrella-aligned
Be warned: The links in this blog discuss nudity and have photos of a man in his underwear.
So, today I accidentally went into battle against a famous internet idiot when I didn't realize he was actually Facebook friends with the person whose status I was commenting on.
In case you're unfamiliar, Brian Zulberti emailed the entire Delaware Bar Association with a cocky, stupid email looking for a job. Attached to the email was a photo of himself showing off his arm muscles.

The Schattenmann Fanclub's Founder/President Prototyoe Ruler has been away for several years, and I'm kind of shy, so the club hasn't been doing much. However, I think it is important to recognize a dedicated fan who has, for the past 2 years, made his devotion to me known more conspicuously than any other fawning fan on the planet.
I speak, of course, of none other than Crymson. Through his years of unwavering dedication to steering every conversation towards Schattenmann rather than the top
Yesterday, the world witnessed a cancellation years in the making: The withdrawal of the Viridian Entente from the 2-member Balkan Entente bloc.
The Balkan Entente was signed in 2008; it's constituent AAs being Argonaut, VE, and GOD. Argo was a smallish Green alliance with a really complicated and silly government structure, which later merged into VE leaving GOD and VE the only parties to the treaty.
For whatever reason--disbandment denial, bad breath, dumb leaders--VE was never w
Ok, so, as is often the case, a discussion about politics turned into a discussion about Schattenmann; it's a cross I bear for celebrity But I find politics more interesting than Schattenmann, and I don't like to de-rail, so, ta-da!: blog.
I just want to stop right here with the "rage" thing. I get this a lot, AirMe and some other folks in a ~very exclusive~ IRC channel from time-to-time give me a ribbing over my being angry, and we all have a laugh about it.
Let me assure you, I'm "ani
We both knew better. I have rearranged your post to organize it by topic.
You made some rather dashing personal attacks, but you can't demonstrate them and they don't merit response. But this is the part of your post that I most wanted to address.
I myself am always amused by the people who level attacks that boil down to Schattenmann is a lunatic has-been who is sad, and Cult of Justitia is a bunch of idiots that Schattenmann has hoodwinked into worshiping him. The insult is oxymoronic to

I'm working on a thread in the vein of Hawk's unrealized project, so I invite you all to "ask me anything" over the next couple days. Questions that are chosen will be answered in the thread, not here.
For reference, I've been around for ~5 years, been a member in GOONS; operative in Hidden GOONS while a member of RoFL, Purge, Browncoats, and TOP; a founding member of Vox Populi and later host of Vox's weekly news journal This Week in Pacifica; and then founded Cult of Justitia. http://cybe
While kingzog's Zog Blog has been chronicling his frustrated (and -ing) efforts to create a new super-duper, lightening-fast, liquid-cooled, impossibly-small 1337 computer, here in Schloss Eggenberg I have just spent the last couple hours on this baby:
For those of you who are less than 20 years old and not a hipster, that thing on the top is a record player. The black disc on top has grooves with bumps in them, the arm extended over it has a needle which translates the bumps into sound. Ri

I love primary documents.
Whether you were ~already~ going to make a separate peace with Avalon before you decided nukes in a war you declared were escalation, you threatened to derail a month's worth of peace negotiations when Avalon fought back against your giggling, bandwagoning tails.

Please look up the word sovereignty in a dictionary before attempting to talk to me about sovereignty.
That is all.
PS. If you feel OWF discussion about politics is interfering with your ability to control your own alliance, then you have bigger problems than the OWF.
OsRavan has suddenly and inexplicably started claiming that it is CoJ which has rejected peace, not ODN who has refused it, in flat contradiction to all reality. Because some people are not as smart as others, rather than depend on everyone to understand that Os just now started making this claim after taking a public punch on the nose and it's fishy, I will provide here for you all the exact terms which OsRavan proposed himself, and which CoJ accepted.

I started my nation in Feb 07 when I saw the link on Fark.com. Irony tag assplodes by the time this blog is over.
I didn't read the Fark thread about the link, though, so I wasn't really aware that there was a Fark alliance or that they were in the deathgrip of a war with GOONS. In fact, I wasn't really aware of any alliances; I knew there were alliances, but I didn't see any reason to join one, I just collected taxes every day. I never got techraided because I never bought tech--why buy som
I eat lunch at a little North African joint called al-Kawthar about twice a week. I like the food, so I had already been eating there a lot, but they play al Jazeera on the TV so since the protests I've been eating there a lot more ot catch the news. It's never very busy (I actually think they're in pretty dire straits) so it's usually just me and the cook sitting in the lobby watching TV while I eat.
Today they were showing a lot of coverage of Libya and also a bit of protests in Aman, Jor
I've been getting a lot of question about CNTC so hopefully I can get you all off my back.
CN Trade Centre is no more. The owner moved halfway across the world and CTNC was not one of the things he decided to keep.
CNTC was probably the most revolutionary tool to be developed since MFO's calcs. It put a powerful trade tool into the hands of the individual. Unfortunately, by the time we shut it down, pea-brained "trade coordinator" bureaucrats had managed to destroy its usefulness the same w

In the past week, I have received [several] PMs and queries from individuals. These individuals all say the same thing: That they are ready to (or have already) joined the reformed Vox Populi, and in doing so they were directed to contact any of the 5 Senators contemporary to the suspension of Vox Populi's charter.
This concerns me chiefly because it represents a security threat to each of these individuals, and most likely to many others unknown to me, in that the 5 last Senators of Vox Popul
A week or so ago Triyun wrote the blog "The Post Karma Lie of Multi-Polarity." You may have missed it. Like all serious blogs are (as will this one) it was quickly knocked out of sight by the daily swarm of "I'm gay look at me," "What I had for dinner," and "My favorite band" blogs. Ah, well.
I didn't completely agree with the argument as laid out, though the thesis was correct. The idea that there is more than one power pole is a lie. And tonight, with C&G's magnificent acrobatics to
How's it goinnnnn? I'm good, thanks. I hope everyone's enjoying the war, I know I am.
Nothing really deep or interesting to say, I'm just sick of the dueling war webs knocking interesting blogs off the front page so I figured I'd knock a war web off. Anyone else think that the second two guys should have let well enough alone?
