  City Block - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Because each city block is an independent unit in its own right, a sense of patriotism is often attached to them by their residents and wars can break out with "enemy Blocks" over the most trivial matters.
Indeed the madness, which came to be known as "Block Mania", was caused by a Sov drug which had been put into Mega-City One's water supply by Orlock, the East-Meg One assassin.
As the Western Judges were about to find out, Block Mania was just a prelude to the Apocalypse War, as the Sovs began their nuclear assualt on a weakened Mega-City One.

Block grants shift program and financial responsibility for these public social services to the states.

 Juicy Studio: Div Mania
Run a div mania document through an automated markup validator, and providing the document is structurally correct, the validator will confirm that the document is valid (X)HTML, as validators are unable to determine whether or not the most appropriate element has been chosen.
There are many factors that contribute to div mania, including a lack of understanding of markup elements (beware deprecated elements), the CSS box model, inheritance and cascade, and choosing appropriate selectors.
Talking with developers who have a reasonable grasp of CSS in order to create a div mania document, it seems that the greatest contributory factor is a poor understanding of selectors.

 Puzzle Games: Cyberbox, Hexxagon, Minesweeper, Sleuth, Tear Down the Wall, and many more!
Block Man 2 is a slightly strange but fun puzzle game from Soleau Software, makers of dozens of classic puzzle type DOS games (and now Windows games too).
In Block Man II, the object is to direct your block-carrying character around the various puzzle rooms using your mouse, stacking and jumping on the blocks until you're able to reach the exit.
It is a normal puzzle game in the sense that the object is to reach the exit to each level by pushing blocks, collecting keys, etc. The difference here is that there are two "player" characters, whom you move at the same time, who both must reach the exit.
