    I just watched a movie about the Irish Civil War. It was pretty sad.

    When the main character called someone he had just been shooting at by his first name, I just about felt like crying.

    Some civil wars are about important shit. Like how likely the government is to rape and/or murder you, or whether you can own black people, or how much it costs to mail a letter. But the Irish Civil War was just stupid. Really fucking stupid.

    Not really.

    you can make <2 carriers or 3 void rays for one mothership.

    The problem is they take forever, which means you have to use chrono boosts

    Carriers are pretty bad and I would rather chrono boost my immortals out or something else. Also when you say you can make three void rays for the cost of a unit, that is expensive as hell.

    Boooo.

    The Tornado had an advanced ground-tracking radar system called TARDIS (Tornado Advanced Radar Display Information System).

    This is what happens when you let geeks design avionics systems.

    This happens in Civil Wars. It's often why they tend to be cited as the nastiest kind of war.

    I know. It was Professor Snape versus Oskar Schindler. How could you support anyone else?

    But yeah, for the layman, having to break bonds of friendship like that is not fun, and I hope I never have to do it.

    Given my understanding of your general location, I'm going to assume that was a joke, and refrain from having Kevin Spacey shout at you about being incorrect.

    Only downside is that it completely changed how I interpreted the character in the book.

    Carrot, it reads a little stiltedly to me. I think it's the use of the phrases identifying the speaker: "I asked", "she spat", "I returned"; in my opinion it kind of throws the rhythm of the dialogue the way it is currently.

    That's not so bad.

    The trick is to get your apology in early, and accompany it with a gift. Make nebulous references to some kind of family stuff coming up. Nobody ever probes too deeply into stuff like that.

    ... Dangerous flooding will continue across northern portions of
    Shelby County due to a levee break along the Big Creek...

    A levee has breached along Big Creek and continues to flood areas
    from Shelby Forrest to the Fayette County line across northern
    portions of Shelby County. At this time... five feet of water has
    flooded the Naval Air Station in Millington and water continues to
    rise quickly across portions of the city of Millington. Live water
    rescues continue and upwards of 200 people have already been
    rescued. In addition... 200 to 300 homes have been flooded in base
    housing at naval support activity in Millington. This is an
    extremely dangerous situation. If water begins to quickly rise in
    your location... move immediately to higher ground.

    doot doot
