As Raiju already announced, I’ve been made Quaestor of this house. How will that affect you? Hopefully, not a lot. I am not a fan of change for the sake of change, but will rather slowly implement improvements.
I like to think I’m easily approachable, so if you have any questions, just shoot!
Unfortunately, I’m taking an LoA right away. I’m taking a bunch of scouts out camping for a week. I’ll be using some of that time to come up with some crazy competition idea’s, and those who’ve seen some of my comps before (or even an entire Vendetta) know they are usually of a unique kind. So be prepared!
Also, you might notice I did not announce any awards in here. You are absolutely correct. there’s a good reason for that: I plan to go over every single one of you in this house, and make sure you get the rewards you deserve. So, please hold up until I get back from camping. :)
To close up, I received some questions. Mako asks: Do you have any animal that you are particularly attached to such as Gizkas? Yes. One of my earliest memories is riding an elephant when I was around 4 years old. I remember it all: the texture of the skin, the roughness of the hairs, and the power of the elephant. That stuck to me. So, my answer is elephants.
Mako also asks: what are your plans/hopes/dreams for Imperium, the houses battle teams, and yourself? Firstly, to get things stable. Less leadership changes, people getting promoted steadily, etc. once that is in place, we will see where things go. Fictionwise, things will broadly still the same.
Jorm asks: Purely for the laughs I challenge you to design, 3D-Print and program a report typer for you within 3 months - do you accept the challenge? I will get back to you on this in my next report. First, I’ll have to figure out if this is even feasible.
For those of you wondering what prompted this question: I recently got a 3D printer, and if you want to see the results, join us on Telegram. I’ve been spamming results there every now and then. :P
Raiju asks: What's with your country's love of dikes and tulips? Oh and carrots Let me start by saying that only a raw carrot is a good carrot. Boiled it becomes.. meh. Besides mussels and other shellfish, boiled carrot is one of the few foods I really can’t stomach. And I’ve stomached a lot..
about the dikes: we don’t love them. We absolutely need them. Without dikes, half this country would be underwater. don’t believe me? Try this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Sea_flood_of_1953 . that’s what happens when our dikes break. Yes, that was a once-in-a-100 years perfect storm, but we really don’t want it to happen again. So, since then, our dikes have been worked and improved on.
Personally, I live in a province that’s entirely below sea level. If a big enough dike breaks, my house will be two stories underwater, leaving only the attic above.
About the tulips: if you think the US invented capitalism.. you’re wrong. The dutch did. First, the VoC, the first multinational stock issuing corporation. You might remember them from Pirates of the Caribean. Yes, they did trade in slaves. And many, many, other things. During that time, there was a Tulip Mania. They became highly sought after, and prices soared. Compare it to the Internet Bubble collapse: practically overnight, the whole economy built around tulips collapsed.
However, ever since then, the dutch have grown a lot of tulips, and became quite renowned for them. Kinda like wooden clogs, I guess. And these days, they still sell. So, that’s why we’re still crazy for them. :P
So, that wraps things up for now. I’ll be leaving in a few hours, though I might pop up on telegram occasionally. PM me if there is anything you need!
