Yep.
He worked in my dorm and I played DnD with him freshman and sophmore year of uni.

That really depends. With this nation, I'm really pushing for primitiveness. I'm not really sure why, but I'm pretty sure it's the novelty since not many people seem to want to touch that stat. I could probably do eco along the way, similar to how Ransium has done it, but I think it would take quite a few months.

Congrats on the legendary find!

Edit: If you're down for some chicken and parmesan made of plants, however, I'm absolutely down for summoning some of that in.

Understandable, Ill start a chicken parmesan plant farm asap.

You are too good to me.

Founding and running a region proved to be too hard for me, so I'm rejoining Refugia.

No worries, I was just making a joke. In all fairness, I've been incredibly busy lately, so I haven't had as much dedication to mindlessly h*ckposting per normal 😜

I agree that trying to run a region on NS is a little bit on the stressful side. There's a lot of pressure to keep things up, especially when people in other regions are watching to see if you'll flop. The thing that gave me a lot of motivation for running Refugia last year is that it's always been difficult for me to feel like I fit somewhere if I don't make a place, myself. So probably other people feel that way too, right? So naturally, the biggest goal in Refugia is that this is a place where you're allowed to be even if you're not blowing people out of the water with everything you do.

Outside of that, may we can do something interesting that people aren't expecting every now and then~

I would, but it looks like Refuge Isle left the region ;-;

Looks like she has a sweet new repeal though page=UN_view_proposal/id=refuge_isle_1596349264

I just saw a video of what happened in Beirut, Lebanon with an explosion at the port there in the city and it is absolutely jaw-dropping. I was wondering why it was such big news because explosions do happen from time to time at facilities such as those but that explosion was on a whole other level. Allegedly it was felt and heard all the way in Cyprus which is 180 miles away from the port. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93tV6-0Ugwk

The only giant explosion I had on my bingo card for 2020 was Yellowstone. I saw just the before/after pictures for this on a news article and it looked devastating.

Oh my god that's messed up. It's really wrong what happened there.

Flohovistan wrote:Oh my god that's messed up. It's really wrong what happened there.

What's worse is that it appears it could've easily been prevented if the substance that caused the blast which has been identified as ammonium nitrate which was stored at the port after being taken off a Russian Moldovan-flagged ship MV Rhosus which had docked at Beirut in 2013 (the ammonium nitrate was stored in 2014) had been safely disposed of in some way rather than in a big 2,750 ton pile at the port.

Ammonium nitrate is a chemical vital for fertilizers and explosives which can only be set off in this form via explosives or fire (fire in this case caused it to explode) so it was highly irresponsible of the port authorities in charge of storage to leave it there in such massive quantities. The blast left a massive crater in the port. https://newscdn2.weigelbroadcasting.com/EPhW4-1596645408-171116-blog-hypatia-h_6e7433f9171ff0c6cf45429f89eb4b46-h_39e07d778d16ef93187f4510f36cede4.jpg

The blast damaged most of Beirut either through directly impacting it with the explosion or causing damage with the massive shockwave and damaged hospitals throughout the city making some of them unable to treat patients normally. One hospital had to resort to treating patients outside in the elements due to the extensive damage that killed several staff members and injured many patients. The blast also destroyed much of the country's grain (and they were already experiencing food shortages due to the economic collapse from the COVID-19 pandemic) and it was reported that it left Lebanon with less than a month's worth of grain in reserve.

I can say that if Yellowstone exploded it would be much bigger than this. If I were to think there would be a massive explosion I would imagine it would be related to Iran and/or Saudi Arabia and their Middle Eastern Cold War.

Be careful with endorsing me I'm only 1 endorsement behind Sylh Alanor.

Yellowstone erupting would definitely wipe out the entire left half of the USA and possibly cause a catastrophic cascade of events that could kill ~5 billion people. My 2020 bingo board is helping keep me optimistic. Oh, new species of hornet mercilessly decapitating friendly bees? Well, at least Yellowstone hasn't erupted!

My other way to stay positive is by logging on to nationstates and allowing as many immigrants in as possible, but sometimes I don't have issues in my queue, so I make do.

Yellowstone's not gonna erupt in the near future. It's a possibility, but it probably won't erupt within our lifeftimes. By then, we'll have developed technologies to counter the effects of the hypothetical eruption. So rest at ease... 2020 won't be the year of the apocalypse.

Are you saying my intentionally comedic 2020 apocalyptic bingo board filled with exceptionally improbable and definitely impossible outcomes is unrealistic?

Impos
