Forest Regional Message Board
It probably depends on what your tax rate is. Once you get to 100% there's nowhere left to go.
Good Saturday, everyone!
There are over 110 custom flags among Forest's nations, but there are only 2 entrants so far in the new regional flag competition over on the off-site forum. Let's see those creative minds put to work to help out the region! There are 3 weeks to go before voting opens, so there's plenty of time left for designing and drawing. But there's no time like the present. Got nothing to do this weekend? Design a flag! It's good for the brain. :)
The contest could probably do with some more publicity. Perhaps a note in the WFE?
I know there's only about ½ hour to go but I'm surprised and disappointed Forest is voting 5-12 so far to oppose the repeal of one of the most reprehensible of the WA's resolutions I've ever seen. In it's sneaky, weaselly way the original resolution fully condones execution by government. Only uncivilised nations still use the death penalty. (Oscar Wilde once described America as the only nation to go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening period of civilisation.) Thankfully, the repeal looks about to succeed.
To be fair I only read it quickly, but I interpreted it to mean that the original resolution imposed limits on who could be executed, and this repeal was going to remove those limits. The ideal situation is no capital punishment, but without the original resolution I don't know whether the current situation is that there are unlimited executions or no executions.
I had to think it through quite a bit before voting against a repeal. The legislation places limits on executions - or rather it did. If there was a reasonable chance of bringing in legislation that either placed even more restrictions on execution or banned it outright I'd have voted for it. As it stands, especially with summer approaching (always brings out a fair few ultra-right wingers for some weird reason), I can't see such a replacement getting anywhere.
There was a school near-ish where I used to live that once had a massive riot... because the school began enforcing its smoking ban. I met plenty of people who went there... they were diverse characters, but were unanimous in their opinion that they went to a crazy school.
Seems odd to me. My high school was of the sort to say go smoke out of the way, where we can pretend we don't see you...
Colleges may be different, but I was under the impression that this was the norm...
