  1. [quote name='Hime Themis' timestamp='1328590484' post='2915926'] Gentle Persons I am of the firm belief that if this was done for propaganda it was brilliant because a very worthy real(OOC) organization will benefit from a realm of imagination. Digiterra can be proud to have made this effort. While my friends in MK may not always view things in the same way as we on Digiterra this is one place where their efforts deserve praise regardless of perceived motivation. Respectfully Dame Hime Themis [/quote] 100% agreement on the above. As an informal follower of the NGO-sphere and what does and does not work therein; I think that MK initiating this move is a masterstroke. Everone has an opinion on MK. Opinions that are often divisive and polarizing, and very very rarely "meh". So the CN Grand Give inspires comments from both sides. This more or less ensures that the topic stays on the front page. MK is doing what many alliances could not do. And while I love my alliance, I can see where if we started this we'd get a pat on the head and a quick exit from the front page and it would all be forgotten because we "always play nice" or some such silliness. Controversy raises awareness, NGO profile, and cash. And MSF has real need for the cash. Good Job MK!
  2. [quote name='Zoomzoomzoom' timestamp='1328065538' post='2912084'] This deserves a sticky [/quote] Completely agree! Meropis pitched in a few Roubles Thanks to MK for organizing this and setting up the donation platform...MSF is on my very short list of truly badass NGOs [sub](waits for comment about strange bedfellows) [/sub]
  3. Here is a website with a ton of online interactive geography games: Sheppard Software I worked in international transportation logistics for many years and am something of a geography junkie. I applaud your willingness to admit what you don't yet know and take steps to address the situation. Rather different from one dim-bulb I worked with in international logistics who asked me if Italy was a part of Europe or another who asked me for a rate quote on ocean freight from New York Port to "China" (which could mean any of 100+ different ports and customs zones) Keep up the good work!
  4. Don't know if anyone has been following developments of the Costa Concordia story. In a world where everyone gets a trophy just for showing up and sensitivity for "feelings" trumps buckling down and getting the job done, no matter how unpleasant; Italian Coast Guard Captain Gregorio De Falco (great name!) rightfully busted a cap on Francesco Schettino, the putative captin of the Concordia. Audio Translated full transcript Here Choice Excerpts: De Falco: "I understand that, listen, there are people that are coming down the pilot ladder of the prow. You go up that pilot ladder, get on that ship and tell me how many people are still on board. And what they need. Is that clear? You need to tell me if there are children, women or people in need of assistance. And tell me the exact number of each of these categories. Is that clear? Listen Schettino, that you saved yourself from the sea, but I am going to … really do something bad to you … I am going to make you pay for this. Go on board, (expletive)!" Schettino: "Commander, please …" De Falco: "No, please. You now get up and go on board. They are telling me that on board there are still …" ------------------------------ Schettino: "I am not going because the other lifeboat is stopped." De Falco: "You go aboard. It is an order. Don't make any more excuses. You have declared 'abandon ship'. Now I am in charge. You go on board! Is that clear? Do you hear me? Go, and call me when you are aboard. My air rescue crew is there." ------------------------------ Schettino: "But do you realise it is dark and here we can't see anything …" De Falco: "And so what? You want to go home, Schettino? It is dark and you want to go home? Get on that prow of the boat using the pilot ladder and tell me what can be done, how many people there are and what their needs are. Now!" -------------------- Schettino .... "to schettino" -: to act like a sniveling pantywaist. Antonym of : "to sullenberger" De Falco should run for Italian PM in the wake of bungacsoni. Me? I want the T Shirt ... Livorno edition
  5. [quote name='Viluin' timestamp='1324283494' post='2881745'] Call it the Ragequitter war. Everyone I've fought basically gave up immediately and stopped logging in, not even to nuke me. [/quote] That and being served cold stale leftovers for CBs rather than fresh and piping-hot tasty drama..... [size="3"]The Bore War [/size]
  6. [quote name='Avery du Troiseau' timestamp='1322467362' post='2854663'] Planting seeds is fine, seeds go in the ground and make me food, like women yet another thing for seed to go in. [/quote] How incredibly and ham-handedly vulgar, Monsieur du Troiseau. Next time, do try to be syntactically amusing. A pity really as I was going to comment on how little you understand that the CCC is rather heterodox...encompassing the spectrum from those who eschew keggers altogether to those who break out the vodka shots immediately after Paschal Liturgy...in church. And we all very much get along and accept one another.
  7. if ever in your area. Saw his show over the weekend and nearly blew my gin and tonic through my nose.
  8. Oh, and Alterego..... snow acts rather differently when falling upon trees which have not yet shed their leaves... like 75 year old oaks and all that. clue....get one.
  9. Power out 29 October @ 1700 hrs. Lasted 5 days w/out heat & electric thanks to some mighty fine fire-building by one of our household members & the propane grill on the deck & gas water heater for showers. Succumbed to the need for heat & news and intarwebz and now household is at hotel for next night or two. "They" say 99% or our town will have power by Saturday. WMECO sort of sux. Anyone else out there get thwacked? I sorta felt like I was back in my camping days....but that was long ago and I had a functioning back. Now I just want a full body transplant.
