  1. 53 here. None of us is getting any younger With respect to my late 20's comment, I was thinking specifically of the kid who founded Nueva Vida when he was 13 or 14. The typical CNer circa 2006, however, was about a decade older,I think.
  2. FTFY, friend. Hate to see you sell yourself short.
  3. Well put. I keep considering that the very youngest CN players I knew in 2006 are now in their late 20's. An average, college-aged player from 2006 is creeping up on 40. The 'external distractions' facing long-time players now are things like families, children and businesses, as opposed to final exams or finding that first post-graduation job. EDIT: Even the Mods are too busy to pay attention most of the time. Once upon a time a person who posted without having a nation would find themselves banned within minutes.
  4. Agreed. Working with him -- albeit briefly -- was one of the few highlights of my CN career.
  5. *waves* A few of us are just waiting for the lights to be switched off.
  6. I think that going forward, all threads should reflect the demographic changes forced upon us by the sheer passage of time. A hidden sub-text to the conversation, if you will. We're discussing foreign affairs but what we're ACTUALLY talking about is how we as nation rulers literally manage to get enough sleep each night, what with all of the soul-crushing realizations that come with middle age.
  7. The beautiful part was the way everyone thought of them as some great, huge unknown. A lot of alliances were tied to them at one time or another. And then they turned out to be the most inactive people ever. The night they were attacked, we tried to find out what the hell was going on because my (then) alliance was allied to them. We waited the amount necessary to cancel our treaty before it dawned on us that they were never going to get back to us, so we considered our deal null. It was weeks -- and I do mean weeks -- later that their great leader finally messaged us. My weirdest experience in FA damage control. But there was literally nothing else to do. If they'd said all the spying charges were BS we would have been happy to fight. Instead, we got silence. It turned out to all be true, but we found out when everyone else did and after the mea culpa we got from Terry. Got flak for sitting on my hands, but I wasn't about to push my face into a buzzsaw for someone who wouldn't even take my calls. /derail Yes, smash things! Go <checks thread title> oh....I only sort of know what's going on, honestly. The world is stupid and awful. Sadly, given the sorry state of my nation all I can do is watch it burn. Anyway, yes, smash things!
  8. Thanks! Now, let's see....historically, bloated alliances that were found to be utterly useless, collapsing with the weakest shove. Hmmm.... My personal favorite of all time is probably the Illuminati.
  9. The bit about NoR abandoning DT is true, but not for the reason suggested. The sad reality is that NoR's Kaiser at the time had basically 'checked out' of CN and couldn't be bothered maintaining friendships and, well, it showed. Also, I think this may be a record in terms of forum necromancy.
  10. It's remarkable to see someone with zero sense of history repeatedly trying to pull the "Who are you?" card. And, speaking from the peanut gallery, it seems every person he's pulled this nonsense on could say, with some justification, "I was greater than you could ever hope to be, you medium-sized fish in a minuscule pond."
  11. *shuts down monitoring stations* I'm sorry, what failed test?
  12. Eating is awesome, but tyranny has its moments. Mebbe combine the two? Oh wait....that would just make you an unbearable restaurant patron. On a more serious note, do you have any goals that you would like to share with the group? I mean, beyond punishing the usurpers for stealing your flag.
  13. Everybody has been aligned with everybody else at some time or another.
