 :x My exams haven't even started yet. They only start January 19th. I hate it when people say the Christmas break is coming up, because for me it means I'll have to study for my exams.

You guys need to be introduced to the wonder of the block system, rather than semester system.  Ready?  Imaging taking one class at a time, for 3 1/2 weeks, then getting a long weekend at the end.  It avoids having all your finals at once, and I know that it helps me concentrate.  Unfortunately, teachers tend to assign a lot of homework.  I've had over 500 pages to read in one night.

It's sweet though!

In Belgium there's only 1 college using such a block system. They have 2 or 3 classes for 6 weeks and then exams. I guess it's a bit easier, because you can fully concentrate on those classes, but on the other hand by the end of the year, you have probably already forgotten what you learned in September-October.

I'd agree with Weaver there. Can't beat it, but it's hard to find pure.

Your lucky you have snow. It only snows in Louisiana once every 5 years. Its considered a miracle to have snow here.

At least you don't live in Richmond! Every year we get snow in nearly every part of Virginia except Richmond. Last year, schools in every county surrounding mine got 2 days off for snow, and we didn't get the slightest millimeter. It's like the snow is tormenting us.

Thumbs down for alot of things: in nor particular order..

WMDs: People generaly take no notice of reality in their quest to get WMDs, its gases, viruses, germs, nuclear weapons etc that seriously ISENT researched for a moment, how hard is it to read in a book or on wikipedia on for instance Mustardgas.. is it that wise to use in a building in a town?

Lets look at mustardgas, Skin affecting gas, primerily affects Eyes, exposed skin, Lungs, takes about 1-6 hrs for first symptoms to occure. Area is (if outside, depending on temperature and wind) affected for about 12-48 hrs, after the primary gascloud drops of the gas remain.

Unit sizes: What sized of units do you use? Many players still use the term Armygroup for what is most likely army or corp. Corp is already that a REALLY big unit. Nations oftend dont havearmy groupsdepending on the sheer size and logistics required to move them, not to mention the sheer number of people in one.

How fast do your units move? A army unit dont movefast, period.. The larger it is the slower it moves. If it comes under fire it moves even more slowly. Navies dont move that fast either, lets say all your ships moves at 20kts, you dont go round africa in a day..

Thumbs up a possible solution? Read, study, think. Do my contry really support 5,6,7 army groups? Can you at all times have over 5-10 million men hangingaround in barracs? How fast do mustardgas dissastipate? Is it wise to use it? Can i really transport humongous quatities of x to y?

All thease answers and more can befound on theinternet, if you cant find it ask some oneyouthink can have the  answer?

I can't find Super Ninja Death Panzers on the Internet anywhere!  Does that mean I have to get rid of all 364 trillion of them guarding my capital?

I live in North Carolina so we only get snow like every 5 or so years(At least in the part where I live).It didn't snow this year.
