Hamsters are pests and fish is food.

I'm going to sleep.

Cats are fine with me also

Good night. Fortunately for us, there are many loving and tame cats out there. I would obviously prefer owning a cat over a dog.

Infact, I would even prefer a cat to lick me than a dog because (although a cat's tounge may be rough and dry) at least it isn't gross like a dog's tounge.

Well, I read both articles and they sort of brought up valid points.

Finally, elections are outlawed and robots control the government. And 25% of the population now have a thought-control collar. Yay!

And, a new flag. Red and blue for electronics and a moon, meaning the night. The moon is sometimes associated with dark times, which it definitely is for the humans!

That's interesting. But I typically associate black and blue with electronics.

That day when your dog tells you: ok you do your thing, I'll wait here until it out of your system...

Or: save me from that one (me) they want me to play agaaain.. I'm knackered. (The dog is looking at my spouse)

And? Cats keep pests at bay. Dogs protect property. I prefer cats. They don't bark and they don't require walking outside at 6AM.
I hate walking. Driving car or whatever is okay, but not walking. Walking is too slow and too much energy with little result. Even if I spend more energy on a bike, I prefer to be actually moving or going somewhere with a decent speed. Average speed of walking person - 5km/h. Average speed of casual biker - 20km/h. My average - 35km/h. Top speed - up to 50km/h.
What's the difference? The same as between wasting your time to walk 25km(which is 5 hours) in one direction and total of 10 hours to return or to go to the beach in 1 hour, have a breakfast, return then go somewhere at noon.

Honestly, I don't really have a preference. Dogs are great for people that like walking and are energetic, and cats are great for people that aren't as energetic and love cuddling. (In my opinion, cats are better to cuddle with.) (I have two cats and a dog.)

Sorry, canine lovers, but according to a new study, cat lovers are smarter than you. Researchers examining the differences between “dog people” and “cat people” found that feline fans score higher on intelligence tests and are more introverted, open-minded, and sensitive, LiveScience reports. On the other hand, “dog people” are more outgoing and energetic, and they prefer to follow the rules. The results, presented at this month’s meeting of the Association for Psychological Science, were collected after surveying 600 college students.

I'd say that a combination of that (Luxize said they had no preference, so I'd say they're a combination of cat and dog people) would be better than just one of the options. Personally, I prefer cats because they're less active then dogs (I'm not an athlete myself).

So that means I'm smarter and more energetic than an average person? Nice.

Today's Activity: Weekly Puzzle and Werewolf Wednesday!

We're continuing on with playing Werewolf on Wednesdays in the Discord and launching our next weekly puzzle: a cryptogram.

Cryptograms are basically coded passages where the true letters of the message were replaced by other letters. The goal is to search for patterns and crack which letters represent which so you can see what the real message is. Here is an example below.

The solution is: Style and structure are the essence of a book; great ideas are hogwash.

You'll have until next Wednesday to solve the puzzle and enter for a chance at a free Legendary card!

To celebrate Earth Day 2021, TRR will be going green in our WFE and all of our ROs will be sporting environment-focused flags! Residents are encouraged to decorate their nations similarly and enjoy a series of fun events lined up for the day.

  • For gameside, everyone is encouraged to share their favorite environment fun-facts on the RMB and chat about Earth Day!

  • On LinkDiscord, we'll be hosting a Theme Thursday (instead of Tuesday) focused on Earth Day in addition to a nature-themed Popmaster game. Popmaster is a popular song guessing game so brush up on your nature songs!



TRR's Birthday Bash - April 27th

Did you know The Rejected Realms turns 18 on the 27th!?!

We're going to have ourselves a Birthday Bash to celebrate our regional birthday and all residents are welcome to come party down both on LinkDiscord and gameside:

  • Expect some fun regional history trivia hosted on Discord at 7 PM EDT on the 27th, with Legendardy card rewards

  • A a S1 Crazy girl Trading Card Pull Event from 3 PM EDT to 5 PM EDT (19:00 - 21:00 UTC)

  • Help create our regional Spotify playlist by submitting your songs Linkhere

Events:



RMB Events

RMB Events are for our gameside friends to help generate RMB activity and positive discussion. These events could be anything from asking people to contribute their best fun fact to writing a one-sentence story together on the RMB.

RMB Events offer a lot of variety and will show up consistently throughout the month on both Mondays and Fridays. The staff member running them will announce them accordingly on the RMB and discord when they start one.



Theme Tuesday

On Tuesdays, a theme topic is set and we judge who can fit the theme best!

We have done this for a while on Discord - based on the theme, members of the Discord server change their nicknames and profile pictures to fit. At the end of the day, the Delegate and Officers consult with each other to decide whose picture and name they liked the best out of everyone who participated. Creativity is encouraged! You can join our Discord server here: Linkclick here!

We are also going to run a gameside version this month. You can change some aspect of your nation (flag, motto or pretitle) to fit a theme, and the Delegate and Officers will pick who they think fits the theme best. Make sure to mention my nation on the RMB (Grea Rejectopia) so I can see you are participating!

Winners of the Theme Tuesday get a free random epic trading card sent to a nation of their choice!



Werewolf Wednesdays & Weekly Puzzle Day

On Wednesdays, we'll be trying to encourage playing our beloved Discord game of Werewolf, which is a game of social deduction. Be sure to join our Discord (Linkclick here!) so you can play along and try to save the village!

Wednesdays will also be for the weekly puzzle for gameside. The weekly puzzle will be some kind of crossword, sudoku, cryptogram, etc that will be more of a long-term event for those who get tired of fast-paced events. You will have until the next Wednesday after it's released to complete the puzzle.

Puzzles will be released in this dispatch, and those who complete it and submit their completed work to me (either to Grea Rejectopia or via discord to Hailu#3271) will be put in a raffle for a free Legendary trading card! Don't spoil the answers for anyone else though!

Cryptograms are basically coded passages where the true letters of the message were replaced by other letters. The goal is to search for patterns and crack which letters represent which so you can see what the real message is. Here is an example below.

The solution is: Style and structure are the essence of a book; great ideas are hogwash.

Sudoku is a number puzzle wherein there is a 9x9 grid with 3x3 sub grids where the goal is to fill the digits in using 1 through 9 such that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 subgrids that compose the grid contain all of the digits from 1 to 9. Here is an example below.



Game Days

Game Days are going to be more relaxed days where you'll be invited to play IO type games or other various games depending on the event. Some of these will take place in the Linkdiscord but, if possible, they'll be advertised for our gameside friends to participate!

Hopefully, the game will rotate to be something different every time, however, there are some player favorites that will return regularly!

Some games you might see frequently:

Linkhttps://tetr.io/ has become increasingly popular across NS, offering Tetris competitive play and multiplayer modes where you play against your friends.

It's quite literally Tetris online, with options to try to screw your friends over and prove you're a Tetris master!

Linkhttps://skribbl.io/ is an ever-loved drawing and guessing game where you attempt to determine the word that the player is drawing.

When it's your turn to draw, you will have to choose a word from three options and visualize that word in 80 seconds, alternatively when somebody else is drawing you have to type your guess into the chat to gain points, be quick, the earlier you guess a word the more points you get!

Linkhttp://slither.io/ has come back into popularity after a few years and offers some fun distraction while you try to get the largest score possible!

I like both, and rats, cows, horses, birds, pigs, goats, sheep, snakes, rabbits etc.
And to be fair, 06.00 AM is only because I like to walk/ run an hour before breakfast with all offspring/ spouse who then have to go to school/ office. And at 6.00 AM, the world is peaceful and glorious.
My dog, who was slightly overweight when we got her three weeks ago, is nicely slimming down to healthy weight. She can always eat/ drink. She just doesn't. Oh, well yes if I offer snacks or other tasty tidbits, she'll eat.
My half cat, who decided herself that the neighbours are a better hotel, is slowly adapting to the presence of the dog.
My dogs used to catch mice and rats as well and flies.
My cat "caught" a mouse AFTER it was trapped in the mouse trap...

Of course, without dedicated graphics card and second hand.
If you don't want to do things for pennies, then start to learn something helpful.

I can't work until I'm 16 (Cherokee County laws)
Even if I drive down to the county seat it would still be much higher than the places in North Carolina. If you're talking about off-the-books purchases, it wouldn't be much cheaper (probably 1 grand for 256 GB or 2.5 grand for 2TB. footnote: The internet service here would crash of over ~2500 GB)
And it's still a 20 minute drive to the county seat.

I too like horses and pigs...and cows. You don't know how good sausages you can make from them. Or steaks.
It is good that you like rats. Rats are one of the main reasons, because of which the plague wiped at least 50% of Western Europe. Also, there is a difference between rat and mouse. Rats are pests and can even attack you and bite you. And carry diseases. Mice are pests too, but at least don't attack people.

Rats also tend to be a bit larger than mice. However since both Mice and Rats are preferred targets for cats, it's a win-win.

I mean, like you said Mice aren't as aggressive as rats. However, they can still indirectly spread disease and prove to be a nuisance as well.

So, cats do a great job when it comes to both mice and rats.

Why is there no option on the poll which is you do nothing?

TopiaLands wrote:Rats also tend to be a bit larger than mice. However since both Mice and Rats are preferred targets for cats, it's a win-win..

Adult rats are actually quite large, can become almost as large as a cat. And can be a threat for the cat itself.
Cats can deal with them, but not as easy as with mice. I also tend to "adopt" street cats or their offspring.
They know how to actually get the job done, they are not spoiled and they are grateful.
Not to mention that with so many cats on the streets, you have to be quite insane to pay for a cat.
