Fun fact when switching between the Julian and Gregorian calendars, they had to completely skip over like two weeks or something to bring them in line again. People went to sleep on like March 4th and woke up on like March 16th.

It ended up not working out because coordinating the schedules of six other adults is a fool's errand. Next time I'm just going to invite fourteen people and see who shows.

Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.


I bought the diplomacy board game about 4 years ago.

played it for about 1 turn.

Never touched it since except to move it.

I'm thinking about how to best fix my board with Milan. I'm kind of surprised there isn't more documentation on that. Has Avalon Hill ever updated the board?

Diplomacy would probably be an easier sell without player elimination, but also player elimination means we could play other, better games!

Diplomacy is a rare game where remote play by post/email works better, in my opinion, than in person. At least for casual play.

there is only one hell:
the one we live in now


Dr. Oszkár Bárány

In the Summer, the Russians broke through the German lines and occupied Prága. They stole our food and violently quelled a protest in the old quarter. The Germans rallied and forced the Russians into a retreat, but not before they destroyed the Charles Bridge and set fire to our crops. Now it is winter again, and we have no food. The rabbi has slaughtered the goats and what few chickens we could find, but it is not enough for one family, let alone seven. The whole city aches and moans in pain.

I am not a religious man. Still, last night, I prayed to G-d to grant us deliverance. I begged him for manna, or a sign, or something, anything to tell me we will survive this trial in our desert of war. But there is nothing. We sit in a snow, alone and afraid.
