  1. I've had an epiphany. You see, I was basking in ignorance and have recently been enlightened. I have truly experienced revelation. You see, here I was, fumbling around CN, bored, seriously considering letting my nation finally die. It's been in the works for several years. I've found no motivation. No desire. I feared that CN no longer offered anything to me. It is, as we have all noted, slowly dwindling into nothingness. Then, TBC, as nothing more than a few loudmouths (Yes. I'm talking about me, so don't read this into my ongoing feud with Gibsonator21, a feud brewing since the CSN/DT spat about reps that I never got) spouting a desire to make something happen, declared chaos. It is a valid CB. I stand by that !@#$. This is where the epiphany happened. I was lurking around, looking in the most half-assed possible manor, to sew chaos. A target, presented itself. It was easy. I declared for the reason that I would be bored before the end of it. It was a self-fulfilling prophecy. I lost interest. It was boring. I didn't finish it. I logged back in after like 5 days (somewhere around that mark) and found that our (the collective our) mutual acquaintance... ...one that it would be rude to call out, so, let's come up with a pseudonym...one that nobody could possibly name...lemme see...I was going to go with Junktard, but that is trademarked....how about Princess Tiny Hands...yeah, that'll do, Princess Tiny Hands.... Sorry, I got sidetracked. Anyway, I found that Princess Tiny Hands doesn't give two !@#$% about his nation, but if a person points out the moronic dribble that rolls incessantly from he and his ilk, he loses his goddamned mind. I mean, like pubes on fire, running for water, falling just left of a can pineapple juice, loses his mind. So my apology to the whole of CN. For several years, I have seriously missed out on the opportunity to use logic in the face of delusion. For several years, I have seriously missed out on what really bothers Princess Tiny Hands: Contradiction. My apologies to the entire community for missing what is so obvious. I'll endeavor to make it up to you. Apologies in the sincerity of harmonious contradiction, Smurthwaite, a humble servant of the peoples of CN, on who endeavors to bring a new motivation.
  2. I came for the hookers and blow, but left dry and low.
  3. Mostly it is the butthurt from the methface coalition that I find hilarious.
  4. I feel like the kid from Big Daddy. "What's the name of this game?" "I win." "Why's that?" "Because I win."
  5. I came for the provocotive titled and stayed for the great story of perservence and sticktoitiveness in the face of adversity. It was a nice break from my day. Thanks. I appreciate the sharing.
  6. First, my complements on the work that went into the OP. I always appreciate Rush's incites, even when I disagree. I was government in a now defunct AA and feel I can share a bit of what was OPSEC at the time, as a member of the oa coalition. LoSS came to NPL and wanted to roll with us during that war (it was the newest treaty each AA had and we were in the "I love you, man" phase). As the coalition was planning, LoSS also indicated they would really like a shot at NG, which fit in nicely with the undercurrents (that I was actually too naive to see) that Rush touched on. The only way anybody would make that happen was the VE signing. Please note, IRON threatened to hit LoSS in retaliation. I sincerely believe they would have. However, they were smart enough to see what would happen if they did. I, for example, threatened to hit them with NPL. While NPL's NS was no match to IRON, it would have been the end of the coalition and would have caused defeat, ultimately. On a completely different note, I would be curious to see what you have say about several other AAs. Please expand your OP, as it is rather delightful
  7. I have had some experience with this topic on both sides of it. I think the bigger issue isn't the poaching that happens between friends (i.e. MF telling me just to get SRA to merge into R&R: what is clearly a dig at somebody for the purposes of sport, which both parties go along with as sport isn't the issue). What is, however, a problem, is when the poacher(s) are unwilling to listen to No answers or are using the idea of poaching as a form of espionage. Even then, I think the former is worse than the latter.
  8. There is some truth to this. It used to be the winning side would press its advantage, roll the losing side before it could rebuild again. Lather, rinse, repeat until enough people got pissed and did something about it. The cycle doesn't work.
  9. Ok, I have made a decision. I will tell you that many of my friends have strong-armed me, telling me where I would be a good fit. I'm simply waiting on approval from the AA, before I announce it officially. Thanks for the fun everybody. Maybe I'll do it again in 3 years. EDIT: I have joined SRA. In part, my decision is to spite all those people who thought MI6 was a forgone conclusion. You can't tell me what to do, so heh! o/all the creative fun that went into my narcissistic vanity and those who were willing to play along.
  10. You are the second AA to offer a made up government position.
  11. NPL was a micro when I joined it. Also, this is interesting...
  12. Ok, guys, I think honestly, I have narrowed it down to 5 AAs. MI6 - because of this: http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?/topic/121112-user-smurthwaite/ SRA - because of this RIA - because of waffles R&R - who owns my soul (allegedly) Guinness - who I know nothing about, but seem like they could be a good micro to work in
  13. Smooth, Xanth. Moving up in the rankings with that move.
  14. This is a c/p of earlier, as I wanted to update and keep it fresh. Here is what I have thus far, in no particular order. IRON - Warrior hinted at a job. SRA - Dr3amW3aver chatted me up on IRC for a good long while and Xanth sent me multiple messages MI6 - Probably the most epic recruitment message I am aware of; then Mogar, a know rogue, promised to fight beside me in the next war if I join RIA - typically fun random and insane message in game + plus they offered waffles NPL - Wally told me that if I don't join, I have no balls Holy Roman Empire - Sir Kindle sent the world's most generic recruitment message and told me to change my color to pink MCXA - SuperCoolYellow used impressive understatement, jrkee also hinted at a job R&R - WarriorSoul has a claim on my soul and Ava beguiled me with a coup attempt NpO - Irish says it will feel like home. CRAP - "Think of all the puns you could use" Atlas - Johnap says they are good guys Guinness - BEER So many quality and a few not so quality choices. Any 3rd part input would be considered.
  15. Yeah. To be honest, I think NG is one of those AAs I would probably not be a good fit for.
  16. True man. To be honest, there are a couple of AAs where I think I would really be a bad fit, but for the most part, as long as I can be myself, swear at everybody else, and rail against stupidity, I'd probably be happy. I really am enjoying the wooing attempts though. Pretty fun. Here is what I have thus far, in no particular order. IRON - Warrior hinted at a job. SRA - Dr3amW3aver chatted me up on IRC for a good long while and Xanth sent me multiple messages MI6 - Probably the most epic recruitment message I am aware of; then Mogar, a know rogue, promised to fight beside me in the next war if I join RIA - typically fun random and insane message in game NPL - Wally told me that if I don't join, I have no balls Holy Roman Empire - Sir Kindle sent the world's most generic recruitment message and told me to change my color to pink MCXA - SuperCoolYellow used impressive understatement, jrkee also hinted at a job R&R - WarriorSoul has a claim on my soul and Ava beguiled me with a coup attempt So many quality and a few not so quality choices. Any 3rd part input would be considered.
  17. Don't worry. DT wasn't an option really, what given asinine trolls like you being there. Tell SOM hello, though.
  18. In all honesty, I won't be making any decisions tonight, but based on the past few hours, the front runners are in this order: MI6 - by far the most creative SRA - by far put in more time than anybody else R&R - apparently own my soul
  19. I typically don't respond to you, but since I moved to None about 2 hours ago, I'm not really worried about it. As for IRC, my tag is simply non-existent, rather than, as you claim, recruit me. Now that I am not in government, I feel safe to tell you, sir, to go $%&@ yourself.
  20. Thus far, I have been received the following in terms of provocative. I think we can up the anti a bit: I am also fond of this one, even though I stole it from AT years ago and passed it on to NPL I have also received messages demanding I go to IRC and as well as the typically lame "Change your Nation Affiliation to 'insert lame AA here.'" Keep them coming. I'm actually a narcissist at heart.
  21. I am looking for the most interesting, provocative, or creative message. I spent 3 years in CSN as the minister of $%&@, a diplomat, and all around pain in the ass. I 993 days in NPL as the Warhead of Foreign Affairs, the Warhead of Communications, the Deputy Prime Minister, and Trium. Still an all around pain in the ass. I have left NPL for reasons given to NPL membership. So. Go ahead. Recruit me. http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=170471
