    Question What would happen?

    I wonder....

    Lets say for just a moment that we had a large amount of members on this board from France, and another large amount from America.

    Then lets just say for a minute that America declared war on France, and the two countries went to war (although that is probably not going to happen...but use your imagination)....

    What would happen to the board?


    [EDIT]
    Dangt...I wanted to add a poll, but its too late for that now...so I will just write it in with text...

    A. Bitter rivalries would appear on the board
    B. Being a family here at the CBoard, things would stay cool
    C. We would create our own cyber nation of CBoardia and forfeit all allegiances with our current nations...

    I think it would depend on the issue that has caused the war to take place... and then I would go on a killing spree... hehe.

    France would have surrendered before we even began mobilizing our millitary.

    That really depends on how many board members actually watch CNN. I'd wager the war would have ended before we realized anything had happened

    It looks like you haven't heard of leet French h4xors.
    You all Americans will be rbooted off this site and it will be renamed as Le cprogrammia.com or whatever it is in French


    I'll also go with

    Nothing will happen here, we have Kermi to protect us.

    I'd wager that a thread would be started about it with a few hot headed, but relevent, comments, then someone would introduce religion and it would go off into lala land like so many others.

    The war would start over wether or not Jerry Lewis is funny.

    [hot headed comment]
    France would nuke the US for breaking up Martin and Lewis (they have been practicing down here with their nukes, the evil little garlic munchers. If there are any French reading this, go test your nukes in your own hemisphere not ours), the US would respond and there would be no more board.

    France wouldn't nuke america because if it HAD a nuke, it would surrender to itself.
