Re: 1063: "Kill Hitler"

Mao would have been a better target - he's responsible for a total of 77,000,000 murders. Stalin is next with 62,000,000. Hitler is far behind, having murdered only 21,000,000 human beings. http://democraticpeace.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/reevaluating-chinas-democide-to-73000000/ I'm sorry, is there...

I don't agree that the first thing you should do is kill Hitler; that's probably one of the last things I'd do.

There's no such thing. Every human being goes through a time in their life when they realise that you're always going to tie. Tic-tac-toe then becomes much less interesting.


As long as you start in the middle, and they don't do a diagonal, you can always win.
