Part of me wishes I never saw those videos just because I'm so impatient. If anyone gets wind of a beta release, do share.

Re: Alternative History (Northstar Republic Stronk!)

That's awesome. Thanks for pointing that out. I love stuff like this. I used to play Victoria 2 and find ways to break away and start a separate country out of Minnesota/The Great Lakes.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Regarding flags, how would we go about changing them? I love how in Chicago you see the city flag all over. With all the talk about "branding" I feel like now is as good a time as ever to get the flag thing rolling.

Re: Twin Cities' National and Global Image

Anyone familiar with the website wikitravel? Out of curiosity I looked up Minneapolis and noticed the "Stay Safe" section is pretty... ridiculous...? Its worth noting the same section for Lagos, Nigeria is like 3 paragraphs less. Dial 911 for emergencies and 311 for non-emergencies. Despite its prog...

Re: MSP Airport

Delta service from Rochester-Detroit will be coming to an end April 9th. Instead they'll be adding another frequency from RST-MSP. Also A while back I had dinner with someone from the MAC through work and I asked a few questions about future int'l airlines. Don't hold your breath for Korean anytime ...

Re: Rumors: A Historical Record of Mystery

Wow I know I’m late to the party, haven’t been checking in as much as usual, but I’m not surprised at all by any of this.

Re: MSP Airport

Not sure if anyone is interested in this kind of news, but on Sunday 11/30 Delta is gonna be flying two 747-400's domestically between MSP & ATL. One coming in at about 630am and leaving around 10am the other coming in around 145pm and leaving about 530pm. Granted, that's one of the busiest travel d...

Re: Andrews Hotel site (4th & Hennepin)

It's easy to look back now 100 years later and say this is a landmark, this isn't, this should have been, etc etc. But it's not so easy to say while you're building what it's fate is going to be in 100 years. That's why we need to bring back the ruin value concept! Sure the building may not look th...

Re: Cannabis Law Reform

Yea its really hard to label Cannabis reform as a Democrat or Republican issue. Following both parties ideologies, they both should have strong reasons to support its legalization. However, just look at the medical bill we got this year despite having an all DFL legislature and governor :/ Unfortuna...

Democracy 3 also on sale. Democracy 3 was a ton of fun when I first bought it. But then you kinda run into a wall with it. Maybe if the Modding community were more active. I agree with EUIV though. Definitely an awesome game with an even more awesome mod community. The new(ish) expansion for Victor...

Re: 2014 MN House Election

This confirms what I suspected: Will Morgan (Burnsville), Yvonne Selcer (Minnetonka), and Ron Erhart (Edina) are in trouble...though the latter may be less so. Ron won by a very comfortable margin in 2012, and I suspect enough constituents may still view him as a centrist (former R) to overcome his...

Who will control the Minnesota House? This thing is awesome.

Why do you think you see commercials for Boeing or GE? Think the average consumer is mulling over whether to buy a 737 or A320? Its for raising their profile.

The cul-de-sac really isn't a cul-de-sac anymore and it serves as a driveway to Standard Heating (Although if you're looking for culs-de-sac look off Lyndale & Plymouth. There's a few over there.)

Regarding the steel framing. There are a few reasons wood studs are chosen over steel, none of which have to do with future flexibility. Those reasons are- Typically wood is cheaper, cheaper labor knows how to work with wood, and in general America is just obsessed with wood. The steel frame here re...

"Punishing drivers" is a bit tounge in cheek, but why not just clump everything against the LRT station and have the wetlands along Shady Oak Grove. Is there anything in that area that a person could walk to (for lunch or something) where being against the LRT rather than Shady Oak Grove would be a...
