ITT: We post wars where the wrong side won
>vikings liked axes xDD
when will this meme end? Most of the axes archeologists found were woodcutting ones and that's also the reason why they found women burried with axes - they were fucking farming tool used by people who were fucking farmers, later on they indeed developed thinner axes meant solely for war (and such battle axes WERE NOT found in female graves) but still their most common weapon was a spear and most priced one was a sword
so in other words they loved axes as much as Navy Seals like spoons and this retarded...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
when will the memes of vikings end? Im fucking sick of them on tv, in the movies, and in video games. NO they were not epic warriors that could destroy any enemy they came across, NO they were not a group feared around the world, they were a band of savages that got BTFO by stone age native americans
what do u guys think of him ?
What a fucking nut job. He had made a pledge to God that he would make a river of blood from the Persian army if he overran it. When he could not find enough people to make a river out of their blood after he defeated them, he killed the captives and opened a dam into their bleeding bodies.
Mental illness isn't contagious. Religion is.
What do you guys think of
>Albert Camus & existentialism?
>What is your philosophy?
I like Camus' philosophy, even though I can't really see much difference between it and just plain old existential nihilism. I think existentialism itself proposes engaging in a wilful act of self-delusion that will ultimately leave the individual worse off than if they had just come to terms with, rather than trying to overcome existential nihilism.
I'm not rightly sure I have one. At the moment, Stirnerian egoism seems the most consistent to me, and seems as though it could present a useful framework upon which to build further beliefs.
What's the best reading material for understanding colonialism and decolonisation?
Decolonisation is a false term. After the countries only gained independence nominally and entered the sphere of influence of either the U.S. or the U.S.S.R. and entered into a long period of proxy wars between the two. The Cold War was cold for Europe, it was hot as fuck for the rest of the world.
These are our terms;
>we dictate your country's domestic policies
>you become our proxy satellite state
>and we have a free pass to rape your women
>Sign the document in the dotted line here to keep the apparence of legality or we nuke you into extintion
What could Japan do in face of American Enlightened values?
> I know people think I'm stupid. Because I get bored easily. Because I have no interest in strategy or logistics or contingency planning. But see, I've learned a lot over the years. And now I see planning doesn't matter, fuel doesn't' matter, strategy doesn't matter. Only two things matter: Force in as great a concentration as you can manage, and style. And in a pinch, style can slide. In any battle, there's always a level of force against which no tactics can succeed.
What did he mean by this, /his/?
>Because of power
No, because of how it exerts its power; i.e. because of the energy of its force.
Power by itself is useless if it is not converted into energy, and energy by itself is ineffectual if it is not modulated into required force.

Does your drink of choice have interesting history?
Dr Pepper. For a soda yes
Whisky. Yes. As for mixed drink, if you haven't had an AK47 you aren't living. No. Not talking about the meme bydlo Kalashnikov thing you find on Google images.
What does /his/ think of Oswald Spengler?
Why do people think they need to cling to such preposterous theories to remain faithful in their Lord?
If anything, I'd say I were a pantheist. But I chalk it up to chemistry we have yet to understand.
So, what we still refer to as "alchemy" is the source of life, the possibilities are limitless, but our frame of understanding, based on impermanence, is what separates us from godly knowledge. And there is no reason to assume intelligent design is behind it.
I remember my wifes 6 year old son coming back from school one day telling me that God made the world. From her point of view, the teacher had told her, therefore; it was absolutely true. I was rather angry about that, to say the least.
You'd think a teacher would know the difference between education and indoctrination
Is this an accurate depiction of Hadrian's wall?
What did people (mostly adults) do for fun before electronics? Were there lots of plays being performed all the time? Did everyone just get drunk? Were there more children's games that included adults? Were people too bust to actually be able to slack off?
