>An osteological analysis of the young man from Byrsa, or Ariche, as he has become known, determined that he was approximately 1.7 m tall and aged between 19 and 24 years, and a craniometric analysis indicated likely Mediterranean/European ancestry as opposed to African or Asian [5, 6]. A full reconstruction of the young man was undertaken and this was part of an international exhibition organized by the National Heritage Institute of Tunis and the Carthage Museum. In 2014 the skeletal remains of the young man from Byrsa and...

Was Ivan the Terrible really 'terrible'?
He committed many horrible acts but was actually a great ruler. He expanded Russia by conquering several steppe khanates and transitioned Russia from a kingdom to an empire as the first tsar. He probably deserves the moniker for incidents like the Massacre of Novgorod, killing his son, and his policy of purging nobles, but he set Russia on a path for greater power.
What would the ancient Greeks think about the modern idea of a hero?
the word hero has gotten so abused that in my country girls who got bullied for being fat or some shit like that now are automatically hailed as heroes by the press and all the other weak-minded people that they'd probably think we deserved to be driven into the sea
How would one craft a compelling case for caring about virginity (especially on the female side) without resorting to "morals" ?
The more men a woman has fucked the likelier it is she is promiscuous and she will go fuck someone else outside your partnership, leading to you risking having too raise someone else's offspring.
This also means women should avoid promiscuous men. A promiscuous man is more likely to father children outside of the relationship which could drain attention and resources away from your children.
The Tsar Bomba was detonated 55 years ago, and had the power to raze entire cities with a radius of nearly 50 miles. They didn't even test the most powerful Tsar Bomba (100 megatons) but instead tested one half the strength, for fear of any ramifications of such a huge blast.
How much have our weapons of mass destruction evolved over the past 55 years, and what kind of implications does this have if World War III were to break out? Would nukes immediately be the go-to tactic instead of boots on the ground?
nuclear yields haven't changed since the 70's.
hell, I'm pretty sure most of our missiles are from the 70's, which is why we've started a nuclear missile replacement program.
there's also the B61 tactical nuclear bomb, also quite old by now, that baby can be dropped from F-16's, and soon the F-35.
Muslims are the only people who practice their faith in accordance to how Christianity and Judaism is meant to be practiced. Why do chubby neo Christian keyboard crusaders hate Muslims since they stand for all of the traditional principles of Christianity?
How would one craft a compelling case against wonton sexual acts (especially on the female side) and the occasional consumption of drugs without resorting to "morals" ?
Drugs directly harm your property (your body) while making you lose money, which is also your property.
A woman that sleeps around has a low marriage value because people perceive she cannot settle into the role of motherhood. This means no children. Children are the best shot at preserving a part of your ego and someone to give your propety to when you die.
Start thinking about things egoistically and it actually starts making a lot of sense that you wouldn't destroy your life for a few cheap thrills.
After reading some Illida I found it strange how after being killed the body of the dead soldier was so quickly looted of weapons and armor. Were people really so keen on looting the bodies of enemies quickly on site or is the Illiad not a credible source for such things.
Also looting during battle thread
People really have way too romantic view of warfare. Arms and armor were expensive more and more the further back in time you go. And the Trojan war was during the bronze age and bronze was expensive as hell since you had to trade to make it.
You wake up in Manhattan in 1933. What do you do?

When I was a little boy both my father and uncle raped me nearly everyday. I now need enough depression and anxiety pills to kill a horse and I want to kill myself.
So do you guys think that wars are started for religious reasons or is religion just an excused used to wage war for political reasons?
Also, I'll be bumping with some stale /his/ memes
What drives a man to absolute political obscurity?
he was on the losing side but wasnt involved in a war, so nobody remembers
it's like asking the general american public who william jennings bryan was. he was all over the place in his time but nobody remembers him now
Nationalism was a good and progressive idea for its time. Instead of, say, Bavarians and Prussians fighting each other or Franks and Saxons fighting each other, different Italian cities...
...these people eventually came together in a long and often painful process.
Unlike what many left-wingers and right-wingers say, "Globalism" and "internationalism" aren't really the opposite of nationalism but only its logical successors we should continue.
>Lets take all these different people who have wildly different moral systems, ancestral backgrounds, cultural upbringings, and beliefs about religion - all of this, ALL OF THIS while they literally cannot even communicate with each other and, and GET THIS GUYS - FORCE THEM ALL TO LIVE AMONG EACH OTHER AND TREAT EACH OTHER AS EQUALS
>IT WORKED FOR YUGOSLAVIA DIDN'T IT??
These are different things.
The kind of people who support imperialist actions (like the US destroying Iraq, Lybia, Syria...) are the same kind of people who are opposed to globalism.
