Welcome to Baka-Updates - Manga Division

Manga is basically the Japanese equivalent of what you might know as comic books. They have a very unique style which has developed over many years. We hope here you can learn to appreciate the art that is manga and become an avid manga fan!

New Poll - Single Government
I took a suggestion from jacob66 and simplified it. Should there be a single government that controls all of humanity? You could look at examples in science fiction such as the Hegemony in the Ender's Game universe (Enderverse) by Orson Scott Card, or the Atreides Empire in Dune by Frank Herbert. Or instead of spanning the universe, or the Federation in Star Trek. Maybe it could be just a global government that's united against an alien threat. Can't think of any examples off the top of my head that's outside the realm of science fiction...

New Poll - Game Show Risk
jacob66 gives some good poll suggestions. For the scenario, just imagine you've already won a good amount of money (like $50k USD) and you're potentially doubling it.

Wow, haven't had a close split like this in a long time! Seemed like most of the people in the comments were fine with it, but then there's that non-vocal majority that says no
