Hey! What happened to the cat who says Oh Long Johnson?!

That Place Over There

Ooooooh Long John.....

So now we know how Daleks get around:

"Yo, dude, I've got a better idea," says Elizabeth Plath while executing a complicated 360° spin over your head. "What if skateboarding was the only way to get around? Wouldn't that be cool? Skateboarding is cheap, healthy, and fun! Everyone should do it! You could improve, like, the quality of life for everyone by banning vehicles and making skateboarding the only legal way to travel. People'd love you for it, man. Well, apart from the guys who make cars and the like, I guess."

Aw, he's gone again. :(

My fellow Torslanders, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Brasilistan forever. We begin nuking in five, four ... oh sod this, I hate counting! (BOOM)

Well I have done it again. I created a science fiction novel for National Novel Writing Month in November that could as well be yet another time lord revision of my nation's back story. (Or it might not; I really haven't asked the story yet.) I even managed to get some nice person to give it a once over edit. Now I put it up on Amazon to download onto your kindle. Only a dollar. (Yes, I know I could have charged 99 cents but I like nice even numbers, this isn't supposed to be a marketing ploy.) The name of the novel is "Thorium Land."

2nd International Cheese Festival

“Hrarroom!” (= “Greetings”),

Ten years ago the International Democratic Union hosted the first International Cheese Festival.
We have now decided to organise a second such event, which will officially start on the 22nd of February this year.

Competition categories =
‘Best IDU Cheese’ (open only to IDU member nations)
‘Best Cheese imported into the IDU’ (open only to non-IDU nations) --- last time around, won by Yelda.
‘Best Cheese-related Product’ (open to both IDU and non-IDU nations)

Post your entries, by the festival’s starting date, at: http://s10.zetaboards.com/IDU/topic/7560196/1/

Even if you don't want to enter, please make a point to stop by after Feb. 22 to vote on the cheeses! :)

The first invitations are being sent to regions that already tend to interact with the IDU, or that I think are particularly likely to be interested in this event anyhows, but this would be a great chance for other nations / regions to establish a trade relationship with the IDU too.

OOC: What does it say about this region that our "least corrupt" government is ranked at only 56’610th in the worlds -- which is almost a third of the way down the list -- for that trait?

^_^

Tzorsland is ranked 1,176th in the world and 1st in The Pleiades for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 13,676.72 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.

Like a good neighbor, Tzorsland is there.
