It isn't? Oh right, i changed it to my other email but havent validated it. 2 seconds.--il'Dictator Mikal 05:29, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
That would explain this, then. (And sent, btw.) Peter Urist for Mod! 05:50, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Arab Spring[edit]

You began this "conversation" by reverting without an explanation. Reason demands that you explain why you prefer Islamist dictatorships in Arabistan to secular dictatorships? Perhaps you hold women's rights in contempt? - Thorvelden (talk)

Well, i decided that your support for assad and the other dictators wasnt going to doil'Dictator Mikal 17:29, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Wasn't going to do what exactly?

Thorvelden (talk)

Why can't you explain yourself? You hold yourself out as a graduate student in history. Academics explain. So explain.

im a graduate already?--il'Dictator Mikal 19:00, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Book repository[edit]

You mean like a kindle? We've legitimately had real trouble getting people to export them to here.

I've been trying to read a couple of books that I can't get in hardcopy lately. It would be really nice if I didn't have to get my laptop out to do it—I kinda get distracted. Maybe that's it? Peter Urist for Mod! 07:54, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Reading online is sorta a problem, why i try and do it in a way that doesnt involve having the internet. --il'Dictator Mikal 04:53, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

So, reading from your post, I see you play CiV. Have any interesting stories from the game? The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 20:05, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Not really interesting, but theres never any uranium where you need it -.- Also, I learned that when you have to Kingdoms of Israel (David and Solomon) they absolutely hate eachother. --Mikal Harass Follow 20:18, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
Is it worth the money to buy? I'm still on 4 - not sure i want to switch to 5. (and no, i don't use roman numerals. they are very dyslexic UN FRIENDLY)--Green mowse.pngGodotL'important c'est d'aimer 20:27, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm still on Civ 3. ТyAsk me about frog-backed securities 20:32, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
Hubby likes 3 more than 4. I want one that really does focus on diplomacy and religion far more than warfare. but i guess i'm just not a real human. ;-)
I have 1 & ToT around here somewhere. ТyAsk me about frog-backed securities 21:01, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
TOT? i'm doing Cesar as a city building. I want something inbetween city building and the non war aspects of civ. but - don't exist.--Green mowse.pngGodotL'important c'est d'aimer 21:06, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
Test of time, civ 2 with fantasy mode, sci-fi mode, and you kept playing once you reached alpha centauri... on Alpha Centauri. ТyAsk me about frog-backed securities 21:24, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
I have a copy of Civ 3 complete somewhere in my room, i have civ 4 installed on my desktop but i havent played it in a while and my favorite is personally civ 2. However, i think its worth the money, and they redid diplomacy and readded religion into civ 5's expansion. I also rarely do anything involving war unless i have to, or want the resources they have :D --Mikal Harass Follow 21:09, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

I've played all the main Civs, some expansions, and Alpha Centauri (original, not Alien Crossfire). Civ1 and 2 I got free download online (needed a special MS-DOS program to run Civ1). Civ3 and Civ4 (and their expansion packs) I kept in a red CD case along with World of Goo and other games I really liked, but I lost the case a couple years ago (probably losing over $100 in the process) and haven't seen it since. Probably will need to get them again when my budget permits. Civ5's on Steam, so no need to get a CD. My computer toaster doesn't really like fun games (yay Minecraft). I'll probably be getting an Ultrabook soon or something. Are giant death robots worth building? o_O

(Oh, and did they really add Solomon to the game? There's no evidence of a kingdom of his magnitude in his temporal period. If he existed at all (which is very unlikely), he would've been a goat herder or something.) The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 21:28, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

I downloaded a mod for it (Both Israel factions i have). I also have to make sure when i play mod games i turn off the ancients (playing against a civ that gets wonder build rates of 1/20, a unique Death robot (which arent actually that practical on account of being the last thing you have in the tech tree before future tech) and a Monument that gives +3 faith, culture, science food and production...)Mikal Harass Follow 21:34, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
(ec) Call me an old-timer, but Civ II is also still my favorite. Although putting all your research into getting Leonardo's Workshop early game does kind of break it. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:28, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
If civ 2 had borders, i'd be pretty content to stay with it, as modding civ 5 is... not as fun as civ 2)Mikal Harass Follow 21:34, 28 July 2012 (UTC)


65 what? Bodies? Million dollars? If the latter, you forgot the 'way' in 'getaway.' Peter This is not my first temporal anomaly 07:26, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Speed. Testing via not caring about speed limits at 11 at night and normal driving has led me to discover my car is in dire need of work if i want to actually use the interstate to cross town instead of the normal streets.Now if i could have 65mil that'd be pretty awesome as well. --Mikal Harass Follow 07:47, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the block sir may I haz another? Must be nice to fuck with people who cannot defend themselves! Matzosphere (talk) 18:09, 9 September 2012 (UTC)


I unblocked this user because it's not clear if the user was trolling or was making a joke at the expense of the Religious right. New users should get the benefit of any doubt. Proxima Centauri (talk) 14:25, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Same as the other ones here.--Mikal Harass Follow 14:43, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Ayn Rand[edit]

It would seem your ideology is generally opposed to philosopher's like Ayn Rand. I was wondering if you could detail why dates and ages weren't important in biographies? I think your worldview is getting in the way of your objectivity. Guidedog (talk) 17:15, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

"I think your worldview is getting in the way of your objectivity.", "It would seem your ideology is generally opposed to philosopher's like Ayn Rand." I don't know much about rands philosophy, i truly don't care to learn either. And my worldview has nothing to do with me saying "we aren't writing a biography on Ayn Rand, Theres No need to go into the minute details of her exact age and the date when it happened". (Dates like death are different) --Mikal Harass Follow 20:11, 22 September 2012 (UTC)


I don't expect you to stop deleting my additions, but could you at least attempt an edit summary so I can see what the supposed problem is. Peterdjones (talk) 12:08, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

I agree. There is too much deletion going on without giving proper reasons and some of it is just trolling. Proxima Centauri (talk) 12:18, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
^Go away, this doesn't involve you or your own very self-inflicted problems. ^^That was 14 days ago, why would you ask me once i forgot about it?--Mikal Harass Follow 16:09, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Not true, you responded by continuing your demagogy, now explain what the demagogy is about.Okasaki (talk) 23:48, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Request for input[edit]

As a student of American history, whaddyathink? Anti-Fed crankery was the official position of the Democratic Party in 1912 ("We oppose the so-called Aldrich bill or the establishment of a central bank), essentially Ron Paul's woo-economics.

Are you fucking brain-damaged?[edit]

We don't block people for being trolls, especially when they haven't made any real edits yet.

Theory of Practice Still tryin' to figure it all out. 15:37, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

When did we decide what constitutes "offensive speech"? This isn't a pedophile apologist (so far), as far as holocaust deniers are concerned...they exist and odious as their "ideas" are maybe deleting their castle user page only reinforces their idea that the powers that be will stamp out "truth" (as they see it), simply because that is what power does.

I thought it was pretty funny. Inquisitor Sasha Ehrenstein des Sturmkrieg Sector 04:08, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

It made me chuckle a little but but... thats about it. Though the "Ha?" was more of a "i don't get why" and not "funny?"--Mikal Harass Follow 04:22, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
I suppose it's not really that funny. It's probably more the potential humor if someone did something with it and it took a long time for the Antiwomanists to catch onto what it is. Inquisitor Sasha Ehrenstein des Sturmkrieg Sector 05:26, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
