this doesn't have much to do with the current discussion, I just found it hilarious and wanted to share it with you.
nationstates wrote:"It's not our war? It's not our war?" cries (in)famous Grythyttan-born fascist Buffy Frederickson. "Well maybe it's time it became our war! Grythyttan should take a more active, and by 'active' I mean 'hostile', role in international politics! This ethnic squabbling will be over when the war is over, and WE can end that war and purge the impure! Science, it works bitches!! Sieg Grythyttan!"

Having the human as your national animal can have some unintended repercussions...
The Issue
In a bid to provide a new revenue stream for Loons House's Beef-Based Agriculture industry, it has been suggested that humans could be added to the menu.

The Debate
"The fact is, the human population is out of control," says Beef-Based Agriculture spokesperson Jean-Paul Longbottom. "We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have human kebabs, human pies, human-on-a-sticks--the possibilities are endless! Let's not pass up this golden opportunity to provide a feast, if you will, for our economy."
[Accept]


"I agree that something needs to be done about human over-population," says random passer-by Prudence Barry, "but eating them? That's kind of gross. Let's just shoot the ones we have to and shovel their bodies into ditches like normal."
[Accept]


"I am shocked and appalled!" declared SPCA President Max Dodinas. "If anyone needs to be culled, it's us humans. The humans were here first, remember? We need to take this as a sign to get our industry--agriculture in particular--to back off. The human is part of what makes Loons House a great nation!"

Go to http://nationstates.net/Metty and click on "Location: xkcd".
Then click "Like what you see here? Click here to move your nation to xkcd" (something like that). You'll now be in xkcd.

Oh, also, Calski - we're under quite a lot of strain to keep NS secret, so your 'sorry coincidence' will probably keep you from the forums for a while yet. Stick around, though, the above (not the first bit, but the one that begins with "However") applies to you too.

And I'm quite annoyed that I don't get to see my xkcd rich/poor results...

On the subject of our recent paranoia in banning a bunch of people - it's over. Our enemies have been crushed, and we've moved on. Even if they infiltrate us, there's no damage they can do; and, let's face it, they're idiots. We'll catch them.

So, newbies, don't feel scared away from joining the community in the private forum. And if you were banned before, nows the time to reapply.

Apologies if I seemed a little harsh, but I'm paranoid about everyone and everything. My opinions don't really affect your ability to join NS anyway - It's up to the admins of the regional forums for that.

The first Senate is in the beginning stages of being formed. This democratically elected group of members will be able to govern over internal regional issues, as well as influencing foreign policy. To run for government, or vote, sign up to the regional forum: http://z15.invisionfree.com/NSXKCDR/index.php?act=idx

If you haven't signed up yet, nows a better time than ever.

If you have then post in the Mask Requesting thread so I know who you are and that you've joined. Or if you've done all that and I've missed it then tell me what your username is so I can sort it out. Don't just join and expect me to know who you are and let you in (if you've used a different name, that is).
