New Poll in The Stone (Pray for Norte Dame)

Apologies for not posting a debate yesterday. I had a problem trying to find a debate to talk about. Luckily I finally found one:

"Do you believe floating communities could be a viable concept that could be put into practice?"

Engineering: https://www.engineering.com/BIM/ArticleID/18941/UN-Brings-Back-Controversial-Floating-City-Concept.aspx
Nat. Geo.: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/04/floating-cities-could-ease-global-housing-crunch-says-un/

Also, my condolences to the French nation who has suffered the burning of Our Lady Notre Dame today.

Official RP Map for Aircraft Manufacturers

To gain some good land for yourself telegram Lockheed Aircraft, Republic Aviation, or Convair Aircraft.

Ruuls fer teh roelplai:

1. Only land in the disputed zone can be claimed, and the borders of the Three Superpowers change constantly as a result of the perpetual war. No land can be claimed from any of the Three Superpowers (Lockheed, Republic, and Convair).
2. Randomly expanding isn't allowed, you have to conquer an existing nation or arrange to have land from an existing nation transferred over bloodlessly.
3. Do NOT fight ANY of the Three Superpowers. You will be obliterated by the superior forces of Lockheed, Republic, and Convair, and, boy, will you regret it.
4. You can be no bigger than Madagascar IRL in the disputed zone.
5. Only nations in Aircraft Manufacturers or its Embassies can request land. (i.e GTFO anyone but Aircraft Manufacturers, The Embassy, Bus Stop, The League of Socialist States, Allied States of the New Europe Union, and nationstates dot net)

Don't forget Australia and New Zealand

And yes, the map is based on the map of 1984

Well, hopefully next week we'll be back to our normal schedule. I honestly didn't plan on stay for as long as I did at a relative's house for Easter. Anyhow, whether or not we've already done this topic:

"Should President Trump release his tax returns?"

The New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/22/us/politics/trump-sues-congress.html

I honestly have no idea what's going on anymore.

What are your thoughts on global warming?

We at the Nambian Covfefe Company hope that it will finally enable us to begin production in Antarctica.

Speaking of which, try a free sample of our Antarctica-Style Covfefe made with ethically sourced penguin milk!
