How's everything been going here?

Just made an Olympics Poll! Go Vote in it! Happy Olympics everyone! (Idk if that's something people say or not but it seems appropriate).

I only watch the Summer Olympics so...

I buy the tapes and watch the Summer Olympics the following Spring, the Winter Olympics in the Summer.

Every third Olympics I switch around and do the opposite, except on Thursdays, when I watch pre-runs of TV sit-coms that have yet to air.

You won't be missing much if you shoot your TV right now.

I'm more of an Internet Person than a TV Person.

I'm not really a person at all, I just play one on TV.

This is the last week of our three-part debate series on Globalization. This week we're debating Economic Globalization. Economic Globalization is the spreading of goods/services, labour, and capital to other countries.

Some view it positively, seeing it as a war deterent. a way to lower prices, among other things. Others view it negatively, seeing it as becoming economically dependent on other countries, a detriment to the health of workers, among other things.

What do you think? Come to the Worldly Debate Region to vote and post to your heart's content. Good luck!

Now releasing ❎. ❎ Is XOIN. Xoin can be yours. An initial amount of 350 XOIN has been released. You will receive a wealth of XOIN to trade in the command post and in the entire Nation States where accepted. By joining the the command post you will receive the citizen rate of 10 XOIN. Administration will receive a base of 10 XOIN and 1 XOIN for every metric met in the administrative position. Mined XOIN distribution will be posted on The Command Post WFB

You will hold XOIN in your Nation Factbook Wallet: nation=exiled_amin/detail=factbook/id=974194

When making a transaction, you will give the XOIN necessary to your debtor. Those cheating the system and not taking accounting in the Factbook will be interrogated and proper punishment will be administered at that time. When asked on the RMB how much XOIN you have, you must be transparent.
