I feel like this law is weirdly specific and useless to be honest
Hmm, we in Dennisov don't always agree with our Delegate's chosen direction, however on this issue we fully support the vote against such an intrusion of personal freedom.
Hmmm, doesn't the new News just make you want to go out and create a new nation? We haven't had a new nation in over 8 years. It might be fun to try and create one you like initially versus having to work very hard for 13 years and still not have it be right. What do you think Texas? Are you going to start making new nations based off the new technology?
I usually use NS++ to create nations in 5 seconds, but I might try it once or twice.
Not really, too much of an hassle.
But If Ill return drunk from a night out and wont have anything to do, I might be tempted to create a new nation and since I notice "Godzillas tokyo" ceased to exist several hours ago
Ill make a nation and will call it "Sharkando Texas".
Hopefully "A technomagical redesign means Ill be able to see the effects of my ideological name choices".......
I'm thinking about it. But not right now.
I tried it after BT talked about it
The new nation is called Caribbean Venture
***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****
WooHootie! Its is not only Saturday breakfast time, it is BaconFest! Man, oh man, is there any more glorious food than bacon? Bacon, bacon, bacon as doggies and kitties alike say! We could stop right here and everybody would probably be happy with all-you-can-stand bacon. However, we have some special treats for everyone today. We will start it off with a Rolling Stones favorite - Brown Sugar Bacon, Deluxe. We take genuine Texas thick-slab bacon, dip it in genuine Canadian Maple Syrup, lay it out on a rack, sprinkle it lightly with cayenne pepper and heavily with brown sugar and pop it in the oven until it is all ooey-gooey-chewy yummy. Mmm! Don't like chewy - not a prob - we have borrowed plenty of well-seasoned, jet-black, cast-iron skillets from the Skillets of Doom peeps and are frying both thick and thin to impeccable crispiness. Need a little more pig with your pig? Got it - we have bacon-wrapped L'il Smokies, bacon-wrapped sausage links, bacon-wrapped sausage patties a 'la filet mignon style and the mother of all pig-on-pig recipes - the Bacon Explosion! This beast is a lattice made of two pounds of bacon interwoven into a nice blanket and then wrapped around a roll of spicy hot whole-hog sausage infused with diced bacon and grilled to smoky, crispy perfection and sliced to order. We have single slice, double-cut, half-roll and the "Gimme A Whole One" - four pounds of pig-on-pig glory. Need a little something to go with your bacon? Not a problem. We have bacon bowls - bacon fried up into bowl shape and filled with your choice of egg - scrambled, baked or we will even fry an egg in that sucker. Don't forget to add a side of Bacon Cheese Grits to go with those babies or make it a whole meal. Grits don't get much better than when loaded up with bacon and cheese. Got a sweet tooth? We have you covered with our Bacon Glazed Donut! This buddy is a light as a feather yeast donut that is dipped in a sweet sugary glaze and then dipped in chopped bacon - think bacon sprinkles! Woo! Bacon Waffles round out the menu for BaconFest with Texas-shaped waffles chock full of extra-crispy bacon that is still extra-crispy after it is cooked. Top it off with maple syrup and your eyes will roll back inside your head over how yummy this is! Since we cannot think of a single juice that goes with bacon, there is No Juice Bar today. Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. Of course, The Never Ending Urn of Coffee is full and ready to help you wash it all down. Come on down and start your day right Texas. You know you want to!®
***** Texas Chat Reminder *****
Today is an amazing Texas Chat #600! That means for 600 Saturdays in a row (roughly) for the last 12 years Texans and friends from around The World (both IC and IRL) have been meeting on Texas' Chat Board. We have not missed a one. Frankly, we somewhat stunned ourselves. We have met a lot of kewl peeps over the years. Most keep coming back week after week. If you want to meet some too, Big Tex sez, check it out.
The Texas Weekly Chat Session will be Saturday (TODAY) at High Noon Texas Time (CDT) ***Saturday***. And, if you can't be there right at Noon, that is Ok, Texas Chat usually runs 3, 4, 5 hours with some Chats running as high as 7 or 8 hours. The current record is a marathon nine hours and fifty seven minutes on July 9, 2016!
The Texas Chat Site is here: http://texasregion.net/blab70/login.php Please register with your nation name. This is a great opportunity for nations old and new to Texas to find out what is going on! We chat, we debate, we talk about the weather, we talk about stuff we like, stuff we hate, random stuff and more stuff. But, it is never stuffy. Usually, it is about meeting your fellow Texans and talking about the latest and most interesting stuff in NationStates at the moment. But then again, sometimes NationStates does not even come up. It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 599 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 12 years! Check it out! Good stuff!
