    Why I really have a hard time taking global doomsday from climate change seriously

    I believe the article can be summarized as "click bait journalism and activist sensationalism creates more bad than good." I agree. I'll take policy based on reason over those based on knee-jerk reactions any day of the week. The 5 second news cycle that the Internet gave us makes that a...

    Lock your rooms!

    Must be time for a new version number so the trolls end up playing with all the old timers instead.

    Hatten Armour Leader vehicle swapping not allowed in refit.

    Not sure I've ever tried moving armor leaders around but as a mostly VASL player yes that is how I've played it. e.g. THIS tank has THIS Armor Leader on it.

    How does one code a pic into VASL using dropbox

    Dropbox exited the image hosting business. You can try the instructions here but I didn't have much luck with the redirect and VASSAL's HTML support. YMMV.

    Entrenched behind a Low Seawall

    Actually, I think I found it? G13.622 says the the wall doesn’t block LOS and I presume that is meant to be an override mentioned in G13.62. Exception being entrenched in a Beach hex.

    Entrenched behind a Low Seawall

    Can a unit in a Trench behind a Low Seawall see non adjacent hexes past that wall? I think myself, and some others, imagined the Low Seawall like a small Cliff but I’m not finding the rule to support that. Could be looking in the wrong place. Taken from Facebook post about AP101 playing.

    Random Selection--light to dark dice arrangement

    It's not the colors, it's the order. I can imagine the French might go Blue, White, Red assuming they have a phrase similar to "the red, white, and blue"? Dunno enough French lingo. I always forget the middle color, and usually only remember the first color when someone grabs any ol' dice and...

    Driverless farm tractors are here... and working well

    There are thousands of them sitting in cages right now. ;)

    Random Selection--light to dark dice arrangement

    I like Red, White, Blue because it's easy for Americans to remember the order.

    Fair enough. I meant desirable models. :)

    Driverless farm tractors are here... and working well

    Most people would work, at something. Some might be painters, musicians, etc. The current economy is already not a zero-sum game. I'm sure I speak for Paul when I say we're open to competing ideas. Basic Income seems the main player on the block. Have you heard of any others?

    Driverless farm tractors are here... and working well

    Well, I think you summarized the most obvious answer in your followup. I'm not sure Basic Income is the best option, but I haven't heard of anything better yet.

    The British European Referendum

    Authoritarian regimes and Trump go hand in hand, you’re backing the wrong horse if you’re trying to get to Liberty. But move this to a relevant thread.

    Routing towards the enemy

    Yes. I was explaining to the other person why out of LOS hexes are perfectly reasonable rout targets even in a reality argument context.

    The British European Referendum

    50K candidates! Dang! Do you guys have like multiple candidates from the same party running for a seat because that averages to > 1.8K candidates per country? Or are there just a lot of individuals/groups vying for particular seats but 1 from each organization?

    Cannot Create this Map

    To expand on von Marwitz, I found this was a more natural way to layout. I also haven't cropped yet since I didn't install VASL with the crop bug fixed yet.

    5G thoughts

    Since it’s been framed as a national emergency, figured this might be an interesting opinion piece to get any discussion going.

    The British European Referendum

    Ah, so to paraphrase, the idea is that NoDeal would be more detrimental to the EU than the UK and that the EU would want to cut a special deal to avoid that pain. Since the EU already has lots of special deals with other countries and the UK (presumably) rejected a similar arrangement to them...

    The British European Referendum

    Can someone give me the high-level talking points on why the EU would feel forced to offer a good deal? What's the EU got to lose by letting a No-Deal-Brexit happen?
