  1. I am a firm proponent of the First Pizza Amendment, whereby anybody can do anything they like to their own pizzas, as is their constitutional right. Personally, though, more of an extra extra cheese guy.
  2. I find a lot of these discussions are rooted in a flawed definition of omnipotence - omnipotence means one is able to do everything that can be done, whereas it is often instead framed as "nothing is impossible." There is a key difference. An omnipotent would have infinite power to enact change, but this change would still need to be bound by what could actually be. The theoretical stone would have to be infinitely large to defeat an infinite amount of lifting power, but such a large and heavy rock is a contradiction since material objects cannot be infinite. An omnipotent could create a stone so massive that by our perception it is infinite - but it logically does have an end point, just one impossible for us to even comprehend. At such scale, does the difference really matter? This ultimately boils down to the point that a being of omnipotence cannot create a contradiction, which doesn't detract from said omnipotence. At least in my opinion.
  3. I was absolutely insufferable in high school. I was also absolutely insufferable for a while after highschool, as some of my older RMB posts will attest. I'm very happy to have met my wife after the fact, for her own sanity.
  4. I do like fruit salad. And the ability to turn most foods into a salad by means of presentation. I'm sure the question Gods won't take kindly to gaming the system, though. Water it is. It's good for you, anyway!
  5. Здравствуйте, Мосраест! Добро пожаловать на форумы. Пожалуйста, сделайте перевод на английский язык, если сможете, для удобства всего сообщества. Пожалуйста, дайте мне знать, если у вас есть какие-либо вопросы. Спасибо! Hello, Monsraeste! Welcome to the forums. Please provide an English translation, if you're able, for the convenience of the community. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
  6. Oh God, is kill me an option? I can't dance, so probably a no-brainer choice.
  7. Money can be exchanged for things to ameliorate a bad job. (Like bribing a doctor for a paid leave of absence!) Enjoying one's work doesn't help a ton when coming home in -7 weather to a building that doesn't have any heat - or with mine and my wife's penchant for fancy dinners
  8. I work with animals every day, and being able to communicate with them would either be fantastic for my productivity (Hello, mister sheep! What's bothering you today?), or absolutely terrifying (being surrounded by 2000+ chittering mice). Either way, I'm only really upset when it's super hot outside, so I'd definitely take the more novel experience of knowing what my cats are up to when they meow at nothing.
  9. My eighth anniversary as an actual citizen of TWP was a few days ago, I think. I had meant to write something, and completely forgotten.

    Compared to a lot of folks here, 8 years is a small drop in the bucket — especially since I was inactive for at least three of them. Still, the continued endurance of Nationstates as a platform is a wonderful thing. Here's to another two years, to round me out at a nice ten, and then many more thereafter.

      Happy citizen anniversary Nox!

  10. "At the end of the day, nothing beats the relief of coming home, even after a fun vacation. When all’s said and done, simplicity is strongest"
  11. I spent the holidays this year staying with my family — it was nice, of course, but with another week to go I find myself missing home very very desperately. I think next year I'd like to have visitors instead of being the visitor, not least because our family house trends towards the negatives this time of year. Brr.
  12. I would love to make something special for all my friends. Totally impractical with my hell schedule, but absolutely the ideal.
  13. Our shelves are already more than packed, so it's one big gift for me. Then again, our closets are pretty full to bursting, too...
  14. When I was young, my mother acquired sole executive tree decorating privileges. In her words "every time you people touch the tree it looks like a mess, and I'm the one who has to stare at it all month." She bought a tonne of silver ornaments and lights, and made a consistently good looking tree every year thereafter. Tyrannical? Probably. Nostalgic? Absolutely. I can't decorate any other way nowadays.
  15. I, Occidius, swear that I have, to the best of my knowledge, been completely truthful in applying for citizenship in The West Pacific and that I have no other NationStates identity that has not been made known in this application. I swear my allegiance to The West Pacific and its citizens, and I swear not to engage in hostilities against The West Pacific or to violate The Manners of Governance, or any laws made pursuant to it.
