Give the people twice as much food as they need, and they turn into Americans.

Damn. NotMyselfRightNow's post didn't use as the main link, so I didn't get a red flag when I submitted it. Though as soon as I posted it, I realized I should have done a keyword search....

In the same vein.... the New Zealand Air Force has these hippy military games. It's not like Tom Clancy could write a novel/game about their missions...

The installer for the Mac version wanted to start up Classic, so I scrapped it. Is there no native OS X version?

It was worth it just for spacewrench's very accurate comment. ;-)

Man, that's was a fast download! Upward of 1500 kbs. The U.N. has some nice servers, huh?

In the last mission you don't even need to give them food and you can still max out all of the bars. I think there might be a bug. :)
