I have arrived, and I intend to play

I wouldn’t expect anyone to be too excited about this.

Welcome! Even though I’m idle. If you have any questions I’m sure almost anyone here would be willing to help you out. An admin will add you soon.

Adding…

Added.

Welcome to BlogNomic! We’ve had a small influx of new players lately; would you happen to know, in real life, OddRon and/or Alzhaid?

Nope, not as far as I know. I just stumbled upon an article on Nomic again today, and remembered the last time I read up on it, I intended to find and join a game. I never did, and this gave me the kick in the pants to get out there and do it. You’re listed in the Wikipedia article for Nomic, so I showed up here, read the house rules, and joined. Now I just have to figure out some good rules to propose. ;)

I found Nomic through stumbleupon as well.

I found nomic ultimately through the Generator Blog it lead me to Kevan’s the Surrealist site, which in turn lead me to Kevan’s main site, which in turn finally led me to BlogNomic.

(I suppose you could say I found nomic ultimately through Google, as it lead me to the Generator Blog…)

Definitely found it while wikipedia-ing “Calvinball.”

Also, I love the name, noone. In my Latin class, we all had to have Latin names so I picked “Nemo.”

We all have to have Latin names in my Latin class too. I picked Canis Latii (which literally means “dog from Latium”, but is Dog Latin for “Dog Latin”).

Also, here’s a link that I think NOI might like.

Heh, nice one. It brings to mind Odysseus and Polyphemus.

Also, I’m compiling a list of countries which I know citizens of. So, what country do you live in? (And are you a citizen of any others? I know that might sound strange, but Ienpw III is a citizen of both Canada and Ireland.)

Just the US. Kinda boring. :)

Klisz:

To an Englishman, England is boring. To an Australian, Australia is boring. Et cetera.

Sorry, I meant that the sole-citizenship part was boring. California is awesome. :)

But… I choose Nemo as MY latin name! No wonder she wouldn’t let me keep it!

Klisz:

Wakukee: “She”?


...

I seem to recall you calling each other “brothers”...

Qwazukee:

She = the Magistra of that class. But why did you choose Nemo, Wak, the name wasn’t even on the list; I just pulled it out of the air.

The only things I remember from Latin class are:
1) The meanings of “nominative”, “accusative”, and “genitive”.
2) The meaning of the phrase “Vos ne es sanum.”

NoOneImportant:

Surely someone remembers: semper ubi sub ubi

Klisz:

11-29-2009 21:53:18 UTC

Um. That translates as “always where? under where?” If i’m reading it right

Qwazukee:

DC’s means “Surely you are not sane,” I believe.

And NOI’s is a joke that only makes sense in the English mistranslation “Always wear underwear.”

Klisz:

Mine means “You are not sane”, though I use it to mean “You are insane”.

@SemperUbi: Ah. I knew it sounded vaguely familiar.
