    Global War Peace Terms - Discussion

    Guess it's been awhile since some of the people proposing these terms have won a war. They better hope they don't lose one again any time soon. At one point we had some friends on the other side of this one, but that is clearly no longer the case.

    Good luck Durmij! You can "retire" like some of the rest of us who mostly lurk and just drop in to sometimes chat and tear shit up once a year or so...
  3. I see two problems here: 1) We are consistently smarter than this game, and whenever we prove it, Alex looks for ways to keep people from outsmarting him. This is not a winning strategy long-term. 2) Alpha are the sorest, whiniest losers this game has ever known. Their entire strategy is to lose with lots of fireworks. Virtually every member of Alpha has terrible, terrible kill/death stats. Have they ever actually won a war?

    Have to remember tho that Alpha's strategy is to lose and then lob nukes. It's their only play.

    Rose Update

    Sad to see this. Hopefully Rose is strong enough to make this work, I'm happy to have played a small part in sustaining Rose by sealing the Mensa/Rose alliance and hope that its new incarnation survives to decide that our side is the right side after all ;-P

    An end to SK's Bizarre Adventure

    Good luck guys, appreciate you being reasonable about exit terms and hope you can impart some of that reason to your fellows.

    Goodbye from Greatnate

    Sorry to see you go, Greatnate. Even though we were rarely on the same side of anything, you always seemed like a cool guy and a bright scientist. Good luck!

    Master Baiter - Worlds Dumbest Criminals

    Yep, I had the same opinion. Pretty cool theme.

    Master Baiter - Worlds Dumbest Criminals

    Looks like Ellio or someone fired about half the Bloc Death government, and then Ellio quit his alliance.

    Issues in school

    School shootings aren't a new issue. There is lots of training out there for mass shooting / mass casualty events. I'm sure you remember bomb threats from when you were in school - the school reaction was to basically slowly and lazily walk kids out of the building into the adjacent parking lot, wait for a few fire department reps to walk through the school and give the all clear, and then everyone went back to class. The modern protocols to respond to threats are drastically different - electronic lockdown of classrooms (no evacuations), police sweeps through every inch of school buildings, significant training to teachers on how to minimize risk, hardened physical plants (strong doors with puncture resistant and opaque windows, video monitoring equipment, etc.), and so on. Bottom line - smart people have spent decades working on this issue and have developed a deep book of measures to mitigate risk. Don't assume that there are no useful and effective steps that can be taken other than painting a social target on one kid by having him frisked and surveilled indefinitely by police.
