Greetings, members of PIPtalk. I have a large favour to ask of you. Skyfire and I are creating a country. It is going to contain British Colombia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, and Yukon Territory. We have decided that once we are in possession of said country, called Nothing (see my signature), we will create a town called PIPtown. We are wondering where this town should be, and looking to you all for input. We could simply take over an existing town, or create a new town. Your input is very valuable in this decision, so please voice an opinion, even if your opinion is that it doesn't matter. Thank you very much,

Sincerely,
Kielo,
Empress of Orange,
oranges,
all things orange,
and the universe in general,
and the future ruler of Nothing.



I'm making my own country, and calling it Nothing. "We're our own country, and Nothing will save us now!"

For good measure and effective planning, I suggest you build a tower leading up from the center of Lake Winnipeg and overlooking all of Nothing...

PIPTown would be at the very top of this tower, the city of the nobles of Nothing.

And because I was so brilliant to think of it, I would be its mayor...

Ok, but I'm still the lemon, right?

"There is a major war going on in the US. Send nothing to help us!"
"We need Nothing!"

Can I have my own town? I want to call it "A bathroom."
"Where do you live?"
"In A bathroom"
"In A bathroom where?"
"In A bathroom in Nothing."

I will stop this now.

Wait, can we include the moon in nothing? Then PIPtown will be on the moon

Yes, we are bringing Saskatchewan. Think about it. BC has fishing, forestry, tourism, and film as major industries. Alberta has oil and agriculture. Saskatchewan and Manitoba both have agriculture. If they have anything else, I am unaware, having never had the pleasure of studying either in depth. North-west Territories and Yukon Territory have minerals, oil, and other related things. We don't want Quebec or Ontario, because the only things there are manufacturing plants and the Canadian Shield. We don't want Nunavut because it has permafrost, and the goodies in the ground are useless. The Maritime provinces are too far away to be convenient, and are not particularly valuable in any way since the unfortunate collapse of the fishing industry on the Atlantic Coast.

Oh, and don't complain. We only included Manitoba because we had sympathy for it, and because Flin Flawn is in it.

I thought it was Flin Flon... Someone chewed me out... *shrug* I'll take your word for it. Ok...

And yes, you are reason enough to include Manitoba. But we're keeping Saskatchewan. Sorry.

Thank you for the invitation!

I just got to thinking however...
can nothing truly exist? If it is nothing, then it is a void, but if nothing is a void,
then there is no void, for a void is nothing,and now both are something...contradicting the ability of both to exist... now I am all confused..

Oh Chris, how could you compare this to our plan to take over the world?! They merely want Canada! (I thought Nothing was the name of that place up there anyway!) :P

LoveBug? I didn't say we were going to stop at Nothing. In fact, Nothing will never stop us. It can't... You don't know our plans, save that we are going to create a country so we can create a city for poets...

*grins at Skyfire* They want the world.

Can our national crop be peanuts?

Ok, I am now officially in charge of the economy

So far:
National Crops: peanuts, pineapples and everything else that would never grow in Nothing
Empress of the Oranges and ruler of Nothing: Kielo
Mayor of PIPtown: Local Parisite
Queen of the lemons and A Bathroom: Wind

Ok, here is our Nation Anthem:

Oh vast lands of Nothing,
Horizons of stars,
Nothing is as good as Nothing,
Not even Anything, so far

And our constitution:

We promise to represent Nothing, and in our mission to bring Nothing to the world, nothing will stand in our way. We swear to be loyal to our Empress, the orange ruler, And to our capital, PIPtown. To prove our loyalty, we will partake in the consumption of 100 rasberrys a day. We will also Be loyal to our Lemon Queen, because she is really awsome.

Riley: let me tell you a story


There once was a little girl, born to the owners of a lemmon farm. They named her Liz, but she called herself Wind. She worked on the plantation as a child, and the lemons were the best in the whole country. The fammilly grew rich, but there was a lot of trouble and fighting between the children. Finally, a war broke out in the country, and the father was sent to fight. He died, and as the mother grew older, she decided to divide the plantation evenly between the children. They fought over who was to inherit the plantation, and the mother grew tired of it. The youngest child, Wind, was the only one who wanted peace. She was her mother's favorite. But the plantation must be divided evenly. she told them "I give each one of you three lemon seeds. Go forth and plant a lemon. Each one of you will soon have your own plantation, so that you may leave me in peace." The siblings ventured out to begin their farms. The oldest, Isabella, went to the desert. She stuck her lemon seeds in the soil, and waited for it to sprout. They dried up and died, and Isabella starved to death. The second child was smarter. But not much. Douglass threw the seeds in the river, and they were carried away to what is now the delta of the lemons. No one knows what happened to him. Before Wind left, her mother told her "Remember this, if you have good intentions, you have a greater chance for success." Then she died of exhaustion. Wind put the seeds in the soil on the plantation. One took root, and the whole plantation became hers. She remembered what her mother told her. By herself, wind gained control of an entire empire, which she called Lemon.

The point of this story is that it takes years to become a good ruler. Even if you are only thirteen, you can still become something great.

Never be normal!
