Agreed. "Oh we are so peaceful"

Need to think of a witty signature.

If I remember correctly, that stemmed from a bug in the first Civilization game.


In the original Civilization, it was because of a bug. Each leader in the game had an “aggression” rating, and Gandhi - to best reflect his real-world persona - was given the lowest score possible, a 1, so low that he’d rarely if ever go out of his way to declare war on someone.

Only, there was a problem. When a player adopted democracy in Civilization, their aggression would be automatically reduced by 2. Code being code, if Gandhi went democratic his aggression wouldn’t go to -1, it looped back around to the ludicrously high figure of 255, making him as aggressive as a civilization could possibly be.

In later games this bug was obviously not an issue, but as a tribute/easter egg of sorts, parts of his white-hot rage have been kept around. In Civilization V, for example, while Gandhi’s regular diplomatic approach is more peaceful than other leaders, he’s also the most likely to go dropping a-bombs when pushed, with a nuke “rating” of 12 putting him well ahead of the competition (the next three most likely to go nuclear have a rating of 8, with most leaders around the 4-6 region).

So the next time you see the AI lay waste to an entire continent, and wonder if it’s just co-incidence or a quirk of the game that it’s Gandhi, know that it’s not. He’s meant to be an asshole, because he’s programmed that way.

Never knew about the glitch. I know in later versions he was made to favour population expansion and I figured that just put him on a war path by default. Either way, he's on my "genocide upon contact" list.

In Spanish there is a veiled term used for lesbians, pan con pan, or bread on bread...meaning there isn’t any meat in the sandwich.

A woman shot herself in a Wal-mart parking lot recently. Skilled in the use and handling of firearms, so she's safe open-carrying in public.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
