It is, just don't want a war today
Do I need to intervene? I doubt either nation wants Draosian warships to enter the skies of their cities because your militaries combined could not threaten them.
This does not concern you......yet
Any internal bickering is my concern and I would not recommend attempting to threaten me when my flagship is likely larger than your capital
We are seeking to get rid of our current Eastern Overlords, but not at the price of being taken over by another superpower.
Also, do not underestimate the military might of the East. They have nukes. And ICBM's. And Spaceships.
To be fair I've got like 8 billion more people so I'm probably larger but nobody is going to war at the moment. Also you're the one that started threatening me and U Crane
I honestly have no intention on starting anything, I was just seeing what reaction I would get. So far it's been negative
Yes, U Crane is just biding its time until our Eastern occupiers get tired of their casualties and just leave us alone
I donít go by NS stats also youíre ignoring the fact that my nation is an alien interstellar empire with a massive fleet so.
Question of the Week:
How did you come up with a name for your nation?
(If this question has been asked here in the past, let me know and I'll delete this post).
With mine, I decided to model my nation after Ukraine, and came up with U Crane as a word-play.
For the life of me, I don't remember why I settled on this name. I think it was an inside joke or something like that.
The nomination process for Second Seat of the SJC has begun here:
I spun a globe with my finger on it. It landed on Caracas, I misspelled it by accident and put Ono in front of it. Onocarcass is definitely better than Onocaracas Though.
How's everyone doing?
I started a new job at my company this week (different division). Aside from the general stress of learning new responsibilities, it's actually pretty good.
I reunited my Siege comp team recently, we're 2-0 currently, and it seems likely based on our upcoming opponents that we'll be making the playoffs.
I just got back home an hour ago from a weekend vacation at my sister's. I was given the task and the honor of reading out the Weekly Torah portion in synagogue, a task I'm pretty good at but which requires lots of preparation.
Went exceedingly well. My brother-in-law said I should record myself reading it (not in the synagogue, of course. That's not done). I wish I had time.
I haven't been feeling too well this week. Just beginning to recover and have a lot of work to do!
On other news, the fight of the U Crane against its Eastern invaders is going along quite favourably, in spite of the heavy casualties on both sides (or perhaps because of it), in spite of 14 million refugees fleeing the country (these are just the elderly, the young children and their mothers), and in spite of us losing one of our eastern districts.
We are no longer just the Borderlines of U Crane. We now boast 500+ population. Cheers!
The elections for Second Seat of the SJC have begun here:
How did everyone's day go?
I visited my brother this morning. The visit went well.
I gave him the things he asked me to bring him: Pocket money, cigarettes, two pens for writing (in case he loses or breaks one, which he often does. These pens are cheap), batteries for his portable radio, stuff like that.
We also exchanged wrist-watches, since he is obsessed with having a perfectly-accurate watch. I carefully set my own before the visit, and now did the same with his.
I worked in the afternoon and made some progress in the book I'm translating.
My roommate is getting dismissed from his hospital and moving to a hostel, so his family are coming tonight to pick up some of his belongings. I hope he manages to get acclimitized to the new place and likes it there. if he settles down there, I'll be getting eventually a new roommate.
Question of the Week:
What is the farthest place (from where you live now) you've been to during your lifetime?
Mine was NYC, USA, where I was born. I moved with my family accross the Atlantic at the age of 5 and live now in Israel.
Even though I've never been back yet, I still have cousins in America and try to maintain a keen interest in American politics, culture and language. I chat daily with American friends on IRC (shout out if you know what that is, lol) and follow the news from there.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I've not gotten much opportunity to travel thus far as my family was desperately poor for most of my life, I'm hopeful to get to visit places like Alaska within the US. Outside the US I'd like to visit 'I'll give one from each continent' : Norway, Indonesia, Australia, Ghana, Chile, Belize
I've been to California, which is on the opposite coast of North America from me. It's probably not a place I'd visit again, but I'm glad I went.
