An excellent historical account.

And, Orm doesn't have to worry about execution.

Indeed. Excellent fiction.

To bad that some important facts were left out or changed to fit the story.


I beg your pardon? Are you suggesting that Warspite's research is ficticious?
For shame.

And Steiner for President? Puhlease!!!

We do not execute people. Not even traitors.




This could be a good time to make an exception!

If you excecute someone how can you then ridicule and taunt him?



Just remember, we're not laughing at you, we're laughing with you.

Steiner already owns our hearts so it is time for him to rule our hearts as well. Steiner would be the best President ever.



Edit: I suggest we make Steiner King instead. Then he would be our Monarch for life.

I certainly hope not - the story of the Goteborg Rifles / the forerunners of ABBA - took me minutes of intensive research....

Yeah, we tried that whole monarch thing. It just wasn't for us.

And isn't this in the wrong thread? We've got to keep all this sensitive political stuff in the other thread.

And yet you missed the fact that Fernando was first written in Swedish by Stieg Andersson. And that it was sung by a female vocalist Anni Lyngstad. The song was about Fernando who had lost the love of his life. This bittersweet song inspired the two gentlemen to write their version of the song Fernando but their version was a story about war instead of love.

Here is a part of the original song translated to english: "The sorrow can be hard to bear, but the fact that friends let us down is something we all have to cope with". "Long live love, our best friend, Fernando. Raise your glass and propose a toast to it, to love, Fernando. Play the melody and sing a song of happiness. Long live love, Fernando".

Edit: Here is the original version in Swedish with English subtitle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys4lyJiqG8E

And do you know what my research has also dug up? I did a double take and fell off my chair when I unearthed this gem; one of the long distant relatives of Stig Andersson (who, for the avoidance of doubt, didn't write Fernando, but did play a part in the creation of ABBA) actually fought at the Battle of Rio Ferdinand - for the Russians!! Yes, UNBELIEVABLE isn't it? Captain Sergei Lergei of the 5th (Peasant) Battalion, the St Petersburg Peasants, actually fought against the Goteborg Riflemen. He too survived the battle and later settled in Northern Sweden with a moose named Gertrude. The union (unsurprisngly - and thankfully - produced no offspring) but after Gertrude departed for the great moose house in the sky, Lergei moved south and shacked up with some dubious sort from the wrong side of South Central Stockholm. The rest (allegedly) is history!!

Does anyone know anything about one of the lesser known battles of the G7YPBW - The Battle of Lago Poopó (1805)?

I am trying to code this lake on the computer map, but everytime I try, HAL just laughs and spits out the code. He thinks I am making the name up, but of course that is not the case, and indeed was the sight of a famous, albeit little known, battle. Any help would be appreciated.




In other words - Steiner, nate or Orm. One of you get your finger out and come up with an intensively researched account of the battle....

Here is the general battle area


Interesting little known detail is that local boat rowers had to be hired to get the attacking forces across the lake which smelled alot like poo which caused nausea for many of the troops. Rare picture below of one on the local boat rowers.

Good work Yogi (nice to know there is someone I can count on). I think there are a couple of items of note:

a) Re the local boat rower - I would
b) The map is perfect in its scope. The battle started on the outskirts of the town north of Villamar and spread to the banks of the Poopo. That is why in some war books it is known as the Battle of Alota Poopo.
c) I will do some research and see if I can drum up some old nonsense about what allegedly happened in 1805 - well m'colleagues arn't exactly falling over themselves to assist are they

Sorry, you're right, Warspite. I must completely re-prioritize my life. The game comes first.

Warspite1

No - the scale is set - we are too late in the day for such changes.

Anyways, how about youse guys giving me some help around here? I thought you might have volunteered to do the names and details of everyone living in the US between 1800-1825? Nate did the Germans, Austrians, Russians, Spanish and French. Just because you have lent me the use of HAL, that does not mean you can put your feet up and expect to share in the spoils. Based on advance orders so far I can tell you, this game is going to be so big, it hurts.

Check your work email, I have sent you the names of EVERY living person in the United States between 1800-1825. Hope that is helpful. I have also included each person's Nike Zoom Hyperenforcer Basketball trainers size, this should help us when playing Quartermaster.

No - the scale is set - we are too late in the day for such changes.

Anyways, how about youse guys giving me some help around here? I thought you might have volunteered to do the names and details of everyone living in the US between 1800-1825? Nate did the Germans, Austrians, Russians, Spanish and French. Just because you have lent me the use of HAL, that does not mean you can put your feet up and expect to share in the spoils. Based on advance orders so far I can tell you, this game is going to be so big, it hurts.


Check your work email, I have sent you the names of EVERY living person in the United States between 1800-1825. Hope that is helpful. I have also included each person's shoe size, this should help us when playing Quartermaster.

Okay sorry - I just checked with HAL - he was witholding the info in order to make you look bad. Please accept my apologies. However, you wasted your time on shoe size.

The US army of the period wore Nike Zoom Hyperenforcer Basketball trainers. I need the trainer size (normally one-size different) NOT the shoe size please.

Okay, HAL is really staring to freak me out now. He changed your post to read shoe size......

Should I be scared here? It's getting so I can't sleep nights - not that I sleep anyway with all this research and coding, and Disney polls and stuff.

Hal does not tolerate much. You must be doing something he does not approve of. I never had any issues with Hal.

Well I'll start conversing in German and see if that settles him. He's normally okay once I've sung him a lullaby at the end of the working day - he just gets so cranky for no apparent reason and flies off the handle....I wonder if HAL is a female computer?
