Civ fanatics didn't like resurrecting old threads, that should be a 5 Star recommendation for us Resurrecting.

I offer my humble apology. When you bring back these old threads it's a little bit creepy though I'm just sayin ;)

No need to apologize.

Everyone had their preferences (and their right to have them).
To each his own.

Am I the only one who considers it creepy when these ancient threads get resurrected?

A lot of ppl change their opinion over time-you know.

After a decade, it's ok to go ahead and start a new thread... imo


No, not creepy at all.

I appreciate the continuity, and being able to reference the previously linked articles as they were originally reported. Gives a good perspective on cause & effect on the large scale, and helps sharpen future predictions of similar events for those who keep such tendencies in mind.

"Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it", after all. :P


My bold emphasis above.

And that is why I prefer resurrecting old threads, when appropriate.

And in reply to ABradley’s Civfanatics comment.

Yeah, I recall doing that a few times at that forum (and the threads that I necro’d were relevant). But they seem to have their rules which are set in stone. Do it their way or the highway; perhaps why I rarely post or even visit their anymore.

I think it's kinda cool seeing what 8 year old me used to think about things. ;)

Student Loans Will Cost Taxpayers $36 Billion: Thanks, Obama

Debt: The federal student loan program was supposed to make money. Instead it will cost tens of billions of dollars, forcing hardworking Americans to subsidize college-educated deadbeats. Who do we have to thank for that?


I'm shocked I tell you ! Shocked! You could have built the border wall all the way from Calexico to San Antonio...and fund the rest with a tax on Mexican beer.

Federal programs NEVER go over budget. :lol: Medicare, Big Dig in Boston, F-35...all well under budget.

This thing was INTENDED as a give-away from the start. You look into this and will find 42% of the "debt forgiveness" went to recent graduates of the Compton School of Cosmetology and Hair Straightening

But is it true? ;)

Perhaps I will dissect this whopper later, busy now watching Il Bianconero vs. Spurs Champions League game.
