Meteor Watch Day

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

To celebrate Meteor Watch Day, hope for clear skies and spend some time star-gazing. Or why not find out when the next meteor shower is going to take place. Remember if you see a shooting start make a wish, the Gods may answer it.

When space debris, for example, pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the surrounding air becomes scorching hot because of the friction. Therefore, you see a ‘shooting star’ that streaks through the sky, with flaming air surrounding it. This is what is known as a meteor. Most of the meteoroids that result in meteors are merely the size of a pebble.

Meteors tend to be viewed during the night. They are at their most visible when they are between 34 and 70 miles above the Earth. Once they reach between 31 and 51 miles above the Earth, they usually disintegrate. Their glow time tends to last for around one second.

Although it may seem that we are able to see a big number of meteors, we actually only see a very small percentage of them. This is because only a very small number of meteoroids will hit the atmosphere of the Earth and then skip back into space.

Different hues in the light can be caused because of the speed and the chemical composition of the meteoroid. This means that you can see some exciting color combinations. This includes…

• Red (silicate)
• Purple (potassium)
• Green or blue (copper)
• Yellow (iron)
• Yellow or orange (sodium)

The Perseids is one of the most active showers in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been named after Perseus, which is a constellation whereby most of the activity occurs. The comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle releases particles that result in meteors showering down on the earth.

The display that is put on is truly magical and dazzling. The Perseids are active during the summer months, typically from around the middle of July until the end of August. On some evenings, when there is a new moon and a clear sky, those watching the sky are able to see more than one meteor per every minute. Pretty impressive, right?

There is no better way to celebrate Meteor Watch Day than to get outside and look to the heavens in the hope of seeing the glow of a falling star! Why not host a meteor-watching party with all of your friends and family? This is a great way to get everyone that you love together and enjoy something different from the norm.

Whether or not you get to witness an entire meteor shower or simply a few stray falling stars, you are bound to have a fun time together. This is also a good idea if you are looking for something romantic to do with the one you love or the one you are trying to impress!

You can also celebrate Meteor Watch Day by reading up on some of the biggest and most interesting meteor hits. There is only one place to begin when it comes to meteors, and this is with Allan Hills 84001. This lump of rock did not make a massive impact because of how big it was.

In fact, it did not weigh a lot at all; it was only around 176 grams. However, the reason it caused such a stir is because NASA scientists believed that it featured signs of alien life. This was no small conspiracy theory. In fact, the United States President Bill Clinton even gave a press conference about it on the day that it was discovered.

The researchers who assessed and evaluated the rock spotted what they believed to be deposits that contained iron, organic molecules, and tiny cells, which appeared similar to some of the bacteria that is produced on Earth. Unfortunately, these claims have since been explained by natural mechanisms, and so the belief that it was alien life has since died down. However, it was certainly a massive deal at the time, and so it is interesting to read all about it.

You can also spend some time reading about the biggest meteors that have made an impact. We will start you off with one of them, and this Morokweng, which is an ancient and massive crater that is located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

It has been weathered away considerably. In fact, so much so that it was only discovered due to the circular magnetic anomalies within the rock, which were located in the 1990s by mineral prospectors. In 2006, this crater gained notoriety, though.

This is because a 25-centimeter fragment of a meteorite was founded when researchers drilled about 700 meters down into the crater. This was a massive shock. The crater was 70 km in width, and before this it was presumed that an impact that was large enough to create a hole like this would have melted the meteorite to the point where it could no longer be recognized.

So you have a new embassy with The Paris Accord? That's great news for you and us! And, we can ensure that this document is your guide to understanding how our embassies work!


Link


Current Embassy Policy

It's our job to ensure that all of our embassies are open, transparent, and working. Any region or group that wants an embassy is allowed to get an embassy! If we fail to ensure our promises to you, then you are fully allowed to deny or revoke our embassies that we have together!

We are more than just a region on NationStates, we are a family, a group, and an organization. With your help, we can grow our family!

Official Current Embassy Policy: Open {To All}


Current Embassy Program

As we stated above, we think of our embassies as family. One really big family. And family is together, no matter what.

To ensure that we can commit to our promises, we have established a program that allows us to work and grow openly with our embassies. Our goal is to serve you, and for you to serve us. We need you to commit full effort, not to help us grow, but to ensure that you can grow. If we can't help you, then what's the point of having an embassy with us?

Start small, and grow big. That's a promise that we can ensure and keep!

We run a committee that works with many other regional governments, to run and host a series of continuous events, to promote and advocate for many topics and issues, and to run programs to help spread and grow others and ourselves.

Official Current Embassy Program: Open Alignment Program {Commited To All Embassies}


Current Embassy Information

If you ever need help or want to get in contact with someone from our region, we are ready to help! The easiest, fastest, and most reliable thing to do would be contacting either our owner and founder of our region, (Eco-Paris Reformation), or to get in contact with the diplomat or ambassador that was sent to our region! You can also try your luck with other members of our regional government if our founder or your diplomat or ambassador is not currently active or responding!

All information that is stated above and below is what will forever stand by! Embassies are a pact, a connection between one region and another. But as we said above, we consider ourselves to be way more than just an embassy!

You should most definitely read the information about the Open Alignment Program! It allows us to help you, and for you to help us. But, one thing is for sure, we care more about helping you then you helping us. Stick with us, and we can help you to our fullest!

Our region stands for more than just advocating and promoting ideas and such... It stands for change, a change that can happen, and change that will happen. And, working together is an amazing way to see our goals and dreams come true. Our region has fun, we govern, and we live.

In no way do we want to push and spread our ideas and ideals onto you. Instead, we want to leave topics and issues to be discussed and plans to resolve and fix them. To ensure fairness, we promise to only post on your RMB every other week (unless we clarify and get permission from a member of your regional government to do otherwise). And, to make this even fairer, open, and more transparent, we allow you to post on our region whenever you feel like it. Can you even call us a region if we're not fair?


Current Embassy Diplomats and Ambassadors

One of our more major beliefs is that we can help you and you can help us grow by working together. How do we do that you might ask? Simple answer: we allow you to send us diplomats, and or ambassadors, to our region, and you can expect something similar in return. No, you're not required to send any diplomats or anything like that to our region, but you're welcome to do so. If you send diplomats and ambassadors, they will be permeant residents of our region, relaying information about what is going in our region so that we can help you and you can help us. They can help us both in many ways, and you get to decide what you want them to do. We give them a site guide and rules to follow, and you can expand that in whatever way you want.

Current Embassy Count

If you didn't know, embassy harvesting is a term for a region that collects mass embassies here on NationStates. The most iconic region of which is no other than The Embassy!

We have no goal currently to embassy harvest, but as stated above, we are open to all regions and groups.

Official Current Embassy Count: 46

Meteor Watch Day

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

To celebrate Meteor Watch Day, hope for clear skies and spend some time star-gazing. Or why not find out when the next meteor shower is going to take place. Remember if you see a shooting start make a wish, the Gods may answer it.

When space debris, for example, pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the surrounding air becomes scorching hot because of the friction. Therefore, you see a ‘shooting star’ that streaks through the sky, with flaming air surrounding it. This is what is known as a meteor. Most of the meteoroids that result in meteors are merely the size of a pebble.

Meteors tend to be viewed during the night. They are at their most visible when they are between 34 and 70 miles above the Earth. Once they reach between 31 and 51 miles above the Earth, they usually disintegrate. Their glow time tends to last for around one second.

Although it may seem that we are able to see a big number of meteors, we actually only see a very small percentage of them. This is because only a very small number of meteoroids will hit the atmosphere of the Earth and then skip back into space.

Different hues in the light can be caused because of the speed and the chemical composition of the meteoroid. This means that you can see some exciting color combinations. This includes…

• Red (silicate)
• Purple (potassium)
• Green or blue (copper)
• Yellow (iron)
• Yellow or orange (sodium)

The Perseids is one of the most active showers in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been named after Perseus, which is a constellation whereby most of the activity occurs. The comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle releases particles that result in meteors showering down on the earth.

The display that is put on is truly magical and dazzling. The Perseids are active during the summer months, typically from around the middle of July until the end of August. On some evenings, when there is a new moon and a clear sky, those watching the sky are able to see more than one meteor per every minute. Pretty impressive, right?

There is no better way to celebrate Meteor Watch Day than to get outside and look to the heavens in the hope of seeing the glow of a falling star! Why not host a meteor-watching party with all of your friends and family? This is a great way to get everyone that you love together and enjoy something different from the norm.

Whether or not you get to witness an entire meteor shower or simply a few stray falling stars, you are bound to have a fun time together. This is also a good idea if you are looking for something romantic to do with the one you love or the one you are trying to impress!

You can also celebrate Meteor Watch Day by reading up on some of the biggest and most interesting meteor hits. There is only one place to begin when it comes to meteors, and this is with Allan Hills 84001. This lump of rock did not make a massive impact because of how big it was.

In fact, it did not weigh a lot at all; it was only around 176 grams. However, the reason it caused such a stir is because NASA scientists believed that it featured signs of alien life. This was no small conspiracy theory. In fact, the United States President Bill Clinton even gave a press conference about it on the day that it was discovered.

The researchers who assessed and evaluated the rock spotted what they believed to be deposits that contained iron, organic molecules, and tiny cells, which appeared similar to some of the bacteria that is produced on Earth. Unfortunately, these claims have since been explained by natural mechanisms, and so the belief that it was alien life has since died down. However, it was certainly a massive deal at the time, and so it is interesting to read all about it.

You can also spend some time reading about the biggest meteors that have made an impact. We will start you off with one of them, and this Morokweng, which is an ancient and massive crater that is located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

It has been weathered away considerably. In fact, so much so that it was only discovered due to the circular magnetic anomalies within the rock, which were located in the 1990s by mineral prospectors. In 2006, this crater gained notoriety, though.

This is because a 25-centimeter fragment of a meteorite was founded when researchers drilled about 700 meters down into the crater. This was a massive shock. The crater was 70 km in width, and before this it was presumed that an impact that was large enough to create a hole like this would have melted the meteorite to the point where it could no longer be recognized.

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

To celebrate Meteor Watch Day, hope for clear skies and spend some time star-gazing. Or why not find out when the next meteor shower is going to take place. Remember if you see a shooting start make a wish, the Gods may answer it.

When space debris, for example, pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the surrounding air becomes scorching hot because of the friction. Therefore, you see a ‘shooting star’ that streaks through the sky, with flaming air surrounding it. This is what is known as a meteor. Most of the meteoroids that result in meteors are merely the size of a pebble.

Meteors tend to be viewed during the night. They are at their most visible when they are between 34 and 70 miles above the Earth. Once they reach between 31 and 51 miles above the Earth, they usually disintegrate. Their glow time tends to last for around one second.

Although it may seem that we are able to see a big number of meteors, we actually only see a very small percentage of them. This is because only a very small number of meteoroids will hit the atmosphere of the Earth and then skip back into space.

Different hues in the light can be caused because of the speed and the chemical composition of the meteoroid. This means that you can see some exciting color combinations. This includes…

• Red (silicate)
• Purple (potassium)
• Green or blue (copper)
• Yellow (iron)
• Yellow or orange (sodium)

The Perseids is one of the most active showers in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been named after Perseus, which is a constellation whereby most of the activity occurs. The comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle releases particles that result in meteors showering down on the earth.

The display that is put on is truly magical and dazzling. The Perseids are active during the summer months, typically from around the middle of July until the end of August. On some evenings, when there is a new moon and a clear sky, those watching the sky are able to see more than one meteor per every minute. Pretty impressive, right?

There is no better way to celebrate Meteor Watch Day than to get outside and look to the heavens in the hope of seeing the glow of a falling star! Why not host a meteor-watching party with all of your friends and family? This is a great way to get everyone that you love together and enjoy something different from the norm.

Whether or not you get to witness an entire meteor shower or simply a few stray falling stars, you are bound to have a fun time together. This is also a good idea if you are looking for something romantic to do with the one you love or the one you are trying to impress!

You can also celebrate Meteor Watch Day by reading up on some of the biggest and most interesting meteor hits. There is only one place to begin when it comes to meteors, and this is with Allan Hills 84001. This lump of rock did not make a massive impact because of how big it was.

In fact, it did not weigh a lot at all; it was only around 176 grams. However, the reason it caused such a stir is because NASA scientists believed that it featured signs of alien life. This was no small conspiracy theory. In fact, the United States President Bill Clinton even gave a press conference about it on the day that it was discovered.

The researchers who assessed and evaluated the rock spotted what they believed to be deposits that contained iron, organic molecules, and tiny cells, which appeared similar to some of the bacteria that is produced on Earth. Unfortunately, these claims have since been explained by natural mechanisms, and so the belief that it was alien life has since died down. However, it was certainly a massive deal at the time, and so it is interesting to read all about it.

You can also spend some time reading about the biggest meteors that have made an impact. We will start you off with one of them, and this Morokweng, which is an ancient and massive crater that is located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

It has been weathered away considerably. In fact, so much so that it was only discovered due to the circular magnetic anomalies within the rock, which were located in the 1990s by mineral prospectors. In 2006, this crater gained notoriety, though.

This is because a 25-centimeter fragment of a meteorite was founded when researchers drilled about 700 meters down into the crater. This was a massive shock. The crater was 70 km in width, and before this it was presumed that an impact that was large enough to create a hole like this would have melted the meteorite to the point where it could no longer be recognized.

Meteor Watch Day

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

The researchers who assessed and evaluated the rock spotted what they believed to be deposits that contained iron, organic molecules, and tiny cells, which appeared similar to some of the bacteria that is produced on Earth. Unfortunately, these claims have since been explained by natural mechanisms, and so the belief that it was alien life has since died down. However, it was certainly a massive deal at the time, and so it is interesting to read all about it.

You can also spend some time reading about the biggest meteors that have made an impact. We will start you off with one of them, and this Morokweng, which is an ancient and massive crater that is located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

It has been weathered away considerably. In fact, so much so that it was only discovered due to the circular magnetic anomalies within the rock, which were located in the 1990s by mineral prospectors. In 2006, this crater gained notoriety, though.

This is because a 25-centimeter fragment of a meteorite was founded when researchers drilled about 700 meters down into the crater. This was a massive shock. The crater was 70 km in width, and before this it was presumed that an impact that was large enough to create a hole like this would have melted the meteorite to the point where it could no longer be recognized.

Meteor Watch Day

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

To celebrate Meteor Watch Day, hope for clear skies and spend some time star-gazing. Or why not find out when the next meteor shower is going to take place. Remember if you see a shooting start make a wish, the Gods may answer it.

When space debris, for example, pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the surrounding air becomes scorching hot because of the friction. Therefore, you see a ‘shooting star’ that streaks through the sky, with flaming air surrounding it. This is what is known as a meteor. Most of the meteoroids that result in meteors are merely the size of a pebble.

Meteors tend to be viewed during the night. They are at their most visible when they are between 34 and 70 miles above the Earth. Once they reach between 31 and 51 miles above the Earth, they usually disintegrate. Their glow time tends to last for around one second.

Although it may seem that we are able to see a big number of meteors, we actually only see a very small percentage of them. This is because only a very small number of meteoroids will hit the atmosphere of the Earth and then skip back into space.

Different hues in the light can be caused because of the speed and the chemical composition of the meteoroid. This means that you can see some exciting color combinations. This includes…

• Red (silicate)
• Purple (potassium)
• Green or blue (copper)
• Yellow (iron)
• Yellow or orange (sodium)

The Perseids is one of the most active showers in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been named after Perseus, which is a constellation whereby most of the activity occurs. The comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle releases particles that result in meteors showering down on the earth.

The display that is put on is truly magical and dazzling. The Perseids are active during the summer months, typically from around the middle of July until the end of August. On some evenings, when there is a new moon and a clear sky, those watching the sky are able to see more than one meteor per every minute. Pretty impressive, right?

There is no better way to celebrate Meteor Watch Day than to get outside and look to the heavens in the hope of seeing the glow of a falling star! Why not host a meteor-watching party with all of your friends and family? This is a great way to get everyone that you love together and enjoy something different from the norm.

Whether or not you get to witness an entire meteor shower or simply a few stray falling stars, you are bound to have a fun time together. This is also a good idea if you are looking for something romantic to do with the one you love or the one you are trying to impress!

You can also celebrate Meteor Watch Day by reading up on some of the biggest and most interesting meteor hits. There is only one place to begin when it comes to meteors, and this is with Allan Hills 84001. This lump of rock did not make a massive impact because of how big it was.

In fact, it did not weigh a lot at all; it was only around 176 grams. However, the reason it caused such a stir is because NASA scientists believed that it featured signs of alien life. This was no small conspiracy theory. In fact, the United States President Bill Clinton even gave a press conference about it on the day that it was discovered.

Meteor Watch Day

Today is Meteor Watch Day! A meteor or “shooting star” is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere; it is also call a “shooting star”.

Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. It is believed to have originated in Greece, when a Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around AD 127-151, wrote that the Gods occasionally, out of curiosity, peer down at the Earth from between the spheres.

When this happened stars sometimes slip through the gap, becoming visible as shooting stars. It was thought that because the Gods were already looking at us, they would be more receptive to any wishes we made!

Did you know that these shooting stars are actually very small? The size of the meteoroid can vary the size of a closed fist to the size of a pebble. Thousands of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis, but very few of them actually reach the surface; but when they do, they are called “meteorites.”

To celebrate Meteor Watch Day, hope for clear skies and spend some time star-gazing. Or why not find out when the next meteor shower is going to take place. Remember if you see a shooting start make a wish, the Gods may answer it.

When space debris, for example, pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the surrounding air becomes scorching hot because of the friction. Therefore, you see a ‘shooting star’ that streaks through the sky, with flaming air surrounding it. This is what is known as a meteor. Most of the meteoroids that result in meteors are merely the size of a pebble.

Meteors tend to be viewed during the night. They are at their most visible when they are between 34 and 70 miles above the Earth. Once they reach between 31 and 51 miles above the Earth, they usually disintegrate. Their glow time tends to last for around one second.

Although it may seem that we are able to see a big number of meteors, we actually only see a very small percentage of them. This is because only a very small number of meteoroids will hit the atmosphere of the Earth and then skip back into space.

Different hues in the light can be caused because of the speed and the chemical composition of the meteoroid. This means that you can see some exciting color combinations. This includes…

• Red (silicate)
• Purple (potassium)
• Green or blue (copper)
• Yellow (iron)
• Yellow or orange (sodium)

The Perseids is one of the most active showers in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been named after Perseus, which is a constellation whereby most of the activity occurs. The comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle releases particles that result in meteors showering down on the earth.

The display that is put on is truly magical and dazzling. The Perseids are active during the summer months, typically from around the middle of July until the end of August. On some evenings, when there is a new moon and a clear sky, those watching the sky are able to see more than one meteor per every minute. Pretty impressive, right?

There is no better way to celebrate Meteor Watch Day than to get outside and look to the heavens in the hope of seeing the glow of a falling star! Why not host a meteor-watching party with all of your friends and family? This is a great way to get everyone that you love together and enjoy something different from the norm.

Whether or not you get to witness an entire meteor shower or simply a few stray falling stars, you are bound to have a fun time together. This is also a good idea if you are looking for something romantic to do with the one you love or the one you are trying to impress!

You can also celebrate Meteor Watch Day by reading up on some of the biggest and most interesting meteor hits. There is only one place to begin when it comes to meteors, and this is with Allan Hills 84001. This lump of rock did not make a massive impact because of how big it was.

In fact, it did not weigh a lot at all; it was only around 176 grams. However, the reason it caused such a stir is because NASA scientists believed that it featured signs of alien life. This was no small conspiracy theory. In fact, the United States President Bill Clinton even gave a press conference about it on the day that it was discovered.

The researchers who assessed and evaluated the rock spotted what they believed to be deposits that contained iron, organic molecules, and tiny cells, which appeared similar to some of the bacteria that is produced on Earth. Unfortunately, these claims have since been explained by natural mechanisms, and so the belief that it was alien life has since died down. However, it was certainly a massive deal at the time, and so it is interesting to read all about it.

You can also spend some time reading about the biggest meteors that have made an impact. We will start you off with one of them, and this Morokweng, which is an ancient and massive crater that is located on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

It has been weathered away considerably. In fact, so much so that it was only discovered due to the circular magnetic anomalies within the rock, which were located in the 1990s by mineral prospectors. In 2006, this crater gained notoriety, though.

This is because a 25-centimeter fragment of a meteorite was founded when researchers drilled about 700 meters down into the crater. This was a massive shock. The crater was 70 km in width, and before this it was presumed that an impact that was large enough to create a hole like this would have melted the meteorite to the point where it could no longer be recognized.

Does this read like a challenge to anybody else? Also, The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is definitely one of my favorite people and they would be a fantastic raider.

2 and 2 is Fish Since nobody answered your question, I would like to answer your question directly. The first step is to develop a reputation and circle of friends. I was invited to the East with the idea that I would become delegate. I honestly didn't care for the region at the time which was saturated in sexual banter and deviancy. That brings us to the next step: Fall in love with the region. Genuinely make it your home and sincerely do good for the region. It has to be real. Do what is best for the region and do it with energy and enthusiasm. Sometimes you take the unpopular positions because it is the right thing. Because of step number 1, your friends from around NationStates will see what is going on and they will want to be a part of it. That's step three, where you start to consolidate power. Step four is pushing the boundaries of acceptable use of power while remaining within the law. At this point, you have a soft coup and the idea is to let it always build. Think of it like a string swell with no discernible crescendo. This all has to do with step 2, though. Bringing the most citizens into active involvement and being included in the "story of the region" will almost always be pushing the boundaries of your authority but should also ingratiate you to the majority. Keep in mind that the most influential people will be against this.

I hope you enjoyed my TED talk.

Yes, it looks like it, but I dunno.

The first one is more chest-thumping and less challenge. But I don't really know their thinking.

2 and 2 is Fish: To add to the second one, a soft coup is very different from a raiding or takeover coup. A takeover coup is more violent and usually with a bad intent (at least as far as the current regional powerbrokers are concerned). As Fedele said, a soft coup has to include a love for the region and putting their best interests first. Remember that when things came to a head, Fedele had been in the region for over 2 years and other involved people (myself included) were in there for at least a year. We were in Step 4 when the people who used to be in power (before Yuno and Fedele) decided to form their own Oligarchy to take on the existing Oligarchy, who remember, had been peacefully in power and had won numerous legal elections for 2+ years. That other Oligarchy employed tactics more similar to a takeover coup than the Fedele-led oligarchy ever did. In the end, they won, we attempted a last stand, and that gave them the justification to call it a coup.

Yeah Cthulu is one of my favorite people too also Can you explain more about the sexual banter and deviancy thing?, I'm curious

The basics first. Not being snarky, just want to make sure we are on the same page.

oligarchy: (1) a small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution.

When we were in TEP, the Fedele camp could be called an Oligarchy. There was a small group of people who were in control of most of the Government institutions. Yes, we were all legally elected (heck, I was Provost for 2+ terms) but the fact remains that our group was a small group of people having control of a region.

The current government (for simplicity, the Marrabuk Oligarchy) was formed from a group of about 5 or 6 people who had been in power before Yuno and Fedele and wanted to be back in charge. The excuse was that we were evil, but the reality is it was only about power. After they took over, they had to add new people of course (if for no other reason than to replace the people they kicked out or didn't trust), but the original Marrabuk Oligarchy were in control of all the important things. They speak well about opening things up, but look at the current Delegate election. Marrabuk made a grand decision to not run again under the premise of not wanting to be seen as a permanent fixture. Tons of people ran but the top 2 (and the only ones with a reasonable chance to win) are both Marrabuk Oligarchy members.

That is how Oligarchs operate. They give the masses the veneer of Democracy while the Oligarchy keeps the actual control.

There are a lot of deleted discord accounts from that time. It became a culture that normalized some pretty unacceptable behavior and even ended up being fertile ground for an adult sexting with a child.

To the best of my knowledge, all of those elements are gone now but it got pretty bad.

Aivintis If you read carefully, you will see that I covered all of those things.

Not being snarky at all

There is one thing I don't understand you say Marrabuk's oligarchy was made from before Fedele and Yuno were in charge, but Marrabuk is newer than both of those, Is it Marrabuk's Oligarchy?

Thanks for answering by the way!

Oh Yes I heard about that, but was it the whole of TEP or just some specific people?

I'm using Marrabuk as the name since he ultimately became the leader of that group. He actually came in near the end of Yuno's term. But most of the others are much older and had powerful positions in TEP before that time. A few have been in TEP for 5-10 years or more.

As for your question to Fedele, I can say that an environment was created in TEP where that deviant behavior was tolerated and even accepted. You can never say the "whole" of a group as large as TEP, but allowing and even encouraging a group like that to flourish tainted the entire region.
