Alright Ancient, I'll try and help. About the SimVac...

So I guess if the loss of relationship between robber and victim is only slight, there is no reason not to use it to ...ahem... 'borrow' a skill-point or two if a promotion hinges on it and there is simply no time to build the skill the regular way?

Can a sim use it on any other sim? I mean, can an adult use it on a teenager? I know, it sounds mean, but the teenies don't need the skill-points quite that urgently, unless its for scholarship reasons and the age-transiton is too close for them to re-build the skill.

My only worries were in the relationship department. I did not want to ruin a parent/child relationship, nor a explode a marriage, unless I feel like doing that on purpose. That's the reason I have so many silly questions, I have never used it before, you see. It never occured to me to use it on townies and NPC's; told you I need a vacation :D

Well, our Prime Ministers aren't quite the same as Presidents - we vote for a particular party, and we just get the leader the party chose as part of the deal

Zephyr, that's pretty much how it works here, as well. The major parties nominate a candidate and no one besides those two people has a chance to win. I have "protest" voted in the last couple of elections.

And speaking of Bush, I read a quote by Clarence Darrow recently that seems very fitting.
"When I was a boy, I was taught that anyone could become President. I am beginning to believe that is true." It's an embarassment that that buffoon is our "leader".

You'd think it would have been a case of once bitten twice shy!  After all, his father wasn't exactly Brain of America!  But I suppose, unless you have more than 50% of your voters with IQs above 100, you are going to get the lowest common denominator of President since there are more voters in that category! 

The problem with out present administration is they seem to be mostly made up of lawyers, and they all want to rewrite the statute book to make more work for their lawyer friends!  One example of this is that sevreal very effective lanti-terror laws were introduced during the IRA campaign, but now with the Al Qaida threat, we somehow seem to need a whole set of new ones!  Presumably to provide employment for numerous lawyers in drafting them!

I don't think I care much any longer what the government does, as long as it doesn't affect me personally - and that's a terrible admission for me to make!

Well, that's just how politicians work. Like the saying goes, "If pro- is the opposite con-, what is the opposite of progress?"

That sounds essentially reasonable to me. It's not like you, personally, can affect the outcome. That's pretty much what I do. I cast my token vote for the third party candidate of my choice, and lose, thus reaffirming the futility of the system, then go back to my hermit-hole and wait for the Revolution, Armageddon, or what-have-you.

I know,, it's the only sensible thing to do, but I still feel cheated!  It's the empty promises at election time that really get to me!

Meh. Our form of democracy doesn't really do what it's supposed to. Country is generally too large of a level of social organization to do anything really useful except get on people's nerves. Decentralization actually works surprisingly well. Just ask ants. They've taken over the world without anything resembling a leader. Even the queen is much more like the germ cells of a single organism than any sort of administrator.

They get to you only if you believe them. It's the same deal with EA hypemongering. I don't believe a word of that shit, so it doesn't bother me when they don't deliver. I just go, "Meh, they always lie anyway."

I vote, though it doesn't make a difference. American politics are fubar. I vote for candidates I know can't win. And also know that even if voting main party, my vote doesn't really count. The elector votes. He is Supposed to vote in the interest of his constituency, but is not Required to. In this digital age why can't we have a true democracy? Or, at the Very least, aim for something closer to the republic that we claim we are.


Bush is an idiot. I would be very amused at the ridiculous things he says and does, if he were anyone other than the president. I am ashamed to belong to a country that would elect him, not once but twice.

 "I want it to be said that the Bush administration was a results-oriented administration, because I believe the results of focusing our attention and energy on teaching children to read and having an education system that's responsive to the child and to the parents, as opposed to mired in a system that refuses to change, will make America what we want it to be - a more literate country and a hopefuller country." -George W. Bush, Jan. 2001

How can I not be proud of this guy?

The whole thing makes me worry....

Pssh. Snow is good. In a few years when global warming causes everything down south to BURST INTO FLAMES from the sheer heat, up here it'll still be quite tolerable. THEN who's going to be laughing, hrm?!? Besides, what's the value in going out in short sleeves? You can be just as comfy going out in FULL BODY ARMOR, when it's cold, and be better protected, too. You should ALWAYS wear body armor!

And if you're a girl, body armor is sexy when paired with a gun and a lead pipe that goes KRONG!   Wink  Even girls should ALWAYS WEAR BODY ARMOR.

Crowbar, not lead pipe. Better for getting a purchase.

But the lead pipe makes such a satisfying noise when it bounces off skulls or shins....  Wink

Well, then take your lead pipe, break the end off so it's nice and sharp, and bent it. Toolmaking.
