Um... they study... the very few "primitive" societies we have left?
And they kind of also do archaeology, only limited to the recent past and humans?

Not sure what they do otherwise, though.

There's linguistic anthropology too, studying the development of languages and all that.

Technically, archaeology is a sub-field of anthropology, but I try to forget about that. It's really just the study of people, and every little thing about them.

Wait... ok, I think my definition was a bit too broad there.

The contributions of the field are... drum roll please... the ethnography, and field work as a research method component.

I really have no idea what that could mean.


I assume that's not the same thing that, say, botanists do?

Sadly, enough, no. Essentially, figure you're studying a society, or in the case of Anthropology, a culture. Fieldwork involves actually doing your own observation for a protracted period of time, immersing yourself in the life and... then you cross into the ethnographic method.

Really, I don't like the field much.

Well hey, if you can find a relevant contribution of Poli Sci besides game theory and the Prisoner's Dilemma, you're in luck there as well

I've been busy the last couple of days? Want to know why? Well here is a speech I wrote about it, because I do things like that. Also, Orp Alliance should totally join in.
------------------
Hundreds of cumulated hours of work organising more then three thousand people have led us to this day. This hour. This moment. The largest assault in the history of CyberNations is under way, the largest single conflict ever known has seen its dawn. This day, this hour, this moment is one that will live in memory forever.

We walk down a path that is dark, but as I look to the future I don't feel fear. What we fight for will carry me through the darkest hours that approach. This is the day where we have drawn a line in the sand and cried out in one voice "NO MORE!" This is the hour where those who would bring tyranny, destruction and oppression upon us all have been confronted and told in a mighty voice "WE WILL NOT LET THIS PASS!" Now is the moment when those who would struggle for freedom and justice unite and strike down our foes crying out "WE WILL FIGHT!"

As I look around at me, I am filled with pride that I may say I am a part of The Legion. Knowing I am surrounded by so many fine people fills my heart with a joy that words alone can not define. What ever the future may hold for us all, good or ill, I simply hope that I may do credit to my fellow Legionnaires as side by side with our heads held high we stride into battle!

Know no regret what ever tomorrow may bring for we fight with all our heart and we are The Legion!

AVE LEGIO!

EDIT: Never mind. Best of luck to Legion and GATO.

The Initative attacked GATO, so most everyone who isn't Initative attacked them.

Meh. CN has way too many actors for me to bother keeping aware of. Hope you do well, though.

xkcd has been Spotlighted in the past, but I'm doing it again in this comic. Damn I hate this guy for talent.

If you put him under the spotlight too much, he might melt.

xkcd is wonderfully awesome. I think the "What am I doing here?... Can I write on your chest?" comic one is also good

Thee YouTube videos about The CyberNations Great War 3 (the one currently being waged)

Video 1, using Halo sounds. I quite like the view of the Legion in this.
Video 2 This is images to Breaking Benjamin - Blow Me Away
Video 3 This one actually quotes a part of my first speech at the begining.

Video 3 was the best of those. Two was relatively lame, although the beginning started out good. Too bad it didn't keep going.

I like Video 1 just for the MC "I need a weapon" and flashing up the Legion Declaration of War and when we caught FAN and TOP by supprise - even though they knew we were comming. That moment alone makes me like number 1.

Totally are. Especially when it came to invading Germany in WW2. The USSR totally rocked America's/Britain's scissors.

Napoleon was a master Rock/Paper/Scissors player. Lost his touch, though.

Going back a ways, but what is that song in the beginning of #3?
