    Corona Virus Sanity Pool

    After @stehilton94 (RIP in pieces) took one for the fora and was the first to officially contract Corona, we need another pool. Who will be the first member of the fora to demonstrably lose their mind due to lock down? Key symptoms to watch out for are talking nonsense, spamming gibberish in every thread and a general detachment from reality. @-idyb- has now of course sprung to pretty much everyone's mind at this point, but please note that he has been doing this for years - this must be a demonstrable consequence of Corona lock down i.e something that happened recently. Who have you got in the pool? State your nominees and rationale below. I'm going for @berzerker101. He's already fairly close to the edge, and is now banned from even smoking on his balcony. Madness is inevitable.

    @VertFTW diagnosed him remotely. Actually you're right though, he didn't test positive. So i guess it's still open.

    Absolutely. Regardless of your view on his politics, Cameron delivered some classics in his time. I loved how he went after Ed Balls all the time.

    Politics thread

    A lot of this back and forth about the media to me highlights the flaw you have in the political system that the "opposition" party doesn't get a chance to hold the president to account. Consequently the media takes that role, instead of reporting what is happening. In the UK they have a weekly time in parliament where the opposition gets to ask the Prime Minister a number of questions. It can be on any topic, but is usually used to hold them to account on the key topics. It's also used to actually show support where things should go across party lines. Of course it's far from perfect, but it seems a much better system of accountability than letting the media do it. You also occasionally get some comedy gold....
  5. Seeing as though the nerds are getting pippie about me posting in the gaming thread I thought i would start my own. Any others welcome if you're giving and active. We're going to war twice a week. Current clan: SpartaUK75 Tribal Fury (me) - Leader Encya (wife's brother) - Co-Founder and elder. Sacked as co-leader for not reading messages and being the worst war leader ever This is Sparta (me/Greek kid with goats) - Co-Leader Baguette (mate of Kylo's) - Co-Leader Teemu (UFC fan Teemu) - Co-Leader Chirrut (Kylo's brother) - Co-Leader BatDaddy (UFC fan BDD) - Co-Leader Kylo (arrived from Assassinators) - Co-Leader Chewie (Batdaddy's mate, from Assassinators) - Co-Leader KK (works with Chewie) - Co-Leader The Arrow (Batdaddy's alt) - Co-Leader TUF (UFC fan Rustled_Jimmy) - Co-Leader Crangs (UFC fan Crangs) - Co-Leader TSU (UFC fan TSU) - Elder Max (irl mate of mine) - Elder Littlearmy (Max's missus) - Elder Matt (my painter) - Elder Shimi (UFC fan Genki) - elder ChrisK (random, but good guy) - elder Old V (former leader of assassinators) - elder Umbreontk (random from global) eVaporeon (Umbreontk's brother) CJ (UFC fan Smooth Criminal) Young Savage (Teemu's nephew) Daft Vader (Matt's alt) Nyte (UFC fan Nyte) Brandon (colleague of Chewie and KK) Shi (former member of assassinators) Nickobar75 (irl mate of V) Orin (brother-in-law of Chewie) Winterfell (just a GOT fan) RobMD (Chewie's hubby) Just V(Old V's alt) Adam (former member of assassinators) Mimikh (KK's mate) Honorary members: Juice (UFC poster Juice). Occasionally wars BKRandySavage (????). Joined and then disappeared. Some say it was Patster....others say it was Banham's mate. We just don't know. Mascot: Omoplatypus, living his coc dreams vicariously through the clan. Top 5 Wars (in no particular order) 13 out of 14 first attacks were 3 stars. Comfortably beat a clan with 3 guys with infernos v our one. Matt and kk both got 3 stars. The one where their th10 needed to 3 star crangs for the win. 12 l5 dragons descended with fury...and parted like a wave under the onslaught of his newly upgraded air defences. He lived. We won. The one where neither side wanted to do the last attack. Their top guy brought lavaloon to bats with 10 seconds to spare. With 4 seconds to spare winter unleashed mass dragons on their th10 bristling with infernos in a yolo attempt. Both attacks were one star. We won on damage. . crangs defending x4 to save a potential war losing 3 star YOLO 2 star on #1 KK hitting the game winning 3 star Top 2 players (Tribal and Cox) get a grand total of 3 stars between them. War leader Chirrut thinks screw this, I'm gonna 2 star a max TH10. TUF follows with a 2 star on the number 2, but they still only need 5 stars to win from two attacks by a TH10 on Crangs/KK. 98%, 99% and one uninstall later it's over and we've won by two stars.

    Watch UFC 249 get cancelled.

    Yeah, it's over. Russia is now in lockdown. Khabib is in Russia....Ferguson is not in Russia. Unless they meet on the Finnish border or something, i don't see how this happens. I blame @Banham.

    SN43's Movie Discussion Thread!

    Watched the original Mad Max yesterday in keeping with our current post-apocalyptic theme. It hasn't aged well. Can't believe it's over 40 years old though!!!

    Corona Virus Thread

    Not quoting this to score any points, as the maths was completely valid at the time; I think this shows though that in some countries they have already started to flatten off a little bit. As of today there are 708,000 cases, and 33,529 deaths. So that implies the rate has slowed down a bit since this was posted a week ago. Just looked at a couple of the big hitters - Italy had just under 6k new cases one week ago, and had virtually identical number of cases today. I make it about 3 weeks since they went into some kind of lockdown, so they might see a decrease in the daily numbers during the next week or so. Spain also shows some tentative signs of slowing down, although they locked down a week later than Italy. Germany and France will be hot on their heels i think. UK a further week or two behind. Looks like you guys are another week or so behind, but in the absence of the same measures I suspect you have further to go before it flattens off. Stay safe fellas.

    Good luck trying to catch this particular falling knife mate. Entirely coincidentally, i sold all my shares just before Christmas and am thanking my lucky stars. So much volatility atm that it's all guesswork right now.

    Can you use more than one super troop at a time? Or do you basically initiate them individually? Feels like this is going to be kind of gimmicky but we shall see.

    So as well as Prince Charles catching it, Boris Johnson has also got it. The queen is still in good health though, so there is still hope!

    Sweden's in danger of slipping out of the top 20. We were briefly top 10 a few weeks ago. Not that they're actually testing anyone unless they are hospitalised. Very fake numbers.

    My thoughts exactly. I need to get my spreadsheet out but if each does almost 2000 dps before they're visible you won't need many in there to take down the town hall
  18. General view seems to be that the league will finish at some point, so there's no pain at the moment. If they declare it null and void like all the bitters such as Ferdinand suggest...yeah, that will smart a bit.

    Who's telling anyone off? I just have a feeling there's a backstory but can't recall it. Didn't you too have a spat over islam once or something? Now go to the naughty step and think about what you've done ?

    As official fora historian, I'm ashamed to admit that i forget where the Stanley/OzPride beef originated. Can anyone fill in the blanks? @stehilton94, did you get your results back?

    Yeah, probably. Plus we only have 2 cities with more than half a million people so it's pretty sparsely populated.

    Sneak peak of the super barbarians. They're kinda like raged barbarians, but with 1100 HP's. Take up 5 spaces though. Look like they'll be decent funnellers. Not a game breaker though. And apparently they will cost DE to unlock, so that's something.
