Personally, I've never been fond of exact dates. History should be about knowing how various events relate to each other, not memorizing when something happened. Chronology works well enough.

Sept. 1 1939 is fairly simple to remember though.

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

Well, the date itself doesn't matter. But I think it's important to know that WWII started well before Pearl Harbor.

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

I simply try to remember the year, not the date. I've no clue when Korea or Vietnam were though.

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

Vietnam: 1959

Korea: 1950

It should be noted, however, that U.S involvement came after hostilites between other countries first started (though it could be argued that it was capitalist/nationalist vs communist the whole time). For Korea it was North vs South, and Vietnam, it was French vs Vietnam Rebels, which then turned into North Vietnam vs South Vietnam, too.

Be afraid, kiddies. I'm really back, but I'll only be playing Omentus for a while.

Aw, come on! If you're posting in the procrastination thread, what's there to be afraid of?

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

Navi007, do you think you could stop using purple text?

Maybe limit it to the first letter, to make a statement about color...but then leave the rest default, so that it's actually readable?

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

Speaking of which, Scooty. I can't read your signature.

But I can read Navi's text just fine. Maybe it's because I'm in temple.

You should all choose the Blue skin so there are no problems.

Indeed? That's interesting. I figured the only skin it'd be unreadable in was white, since the text is white.

...You haven't noticed how bright the Temple skin is yet?

On that note, what skin do you use?

Re: The OoC Thread: KABOOOOOOM

Guys it would be cool if we all used default text colours.
