Memes aside, what were the best swords?
It's really hard to say. Swords were a reflection of defences at the time. There is no one universal "best sword." They were best in situations. Piercing swords for armored foes, fast ones for duels. It was cleave or stab, heavy or light. Each one suited its own purpose.
inb4 Nippon steel, folded over 1000 times.
how would you rate this?
I'm sure people will disagree, but that's kinda what the thread is for.
Make alterations, add channels, make a list of /his/ preferred historia channels, based on accuracy, information and interestingness.
Where is HH? I know it's a bit of a meme podcast but it's very well researched and a great introduction to the topics he discusses
Also, just wondering why you put The Great War at good tier. Is it because they don't go into much depth? I personally love their Out of the Trenches and Where Were They episodes.
What human invention has caused the most net harm to humanity as a whole?
To clarify, by net harm i mean the negative consequences that outweigh the positive consequences.
Why did he invade Poland? It was unnecessary.
The fall of the Ottoman Empire was a mistake

Happy anniversary, you guys!
ITT: Historical figures who seem like they were good people.
What was Orwells goal with 1984? Was it really a warning or satire?
He was just writing about what the world was turning into. Furthermore, he was also entirely right. Newspeak is a thing, soldiers on overseas occupation missions are called "peace troops" etc.
Considering that he figured our future could best be described as a boot pressing down on a human face forever, I'd say it was a warning brought about of his thorough pessimism resulting from how the spanish revolution went down for him.
He wasn't right, in no way are we near the levels of 1984.
I'm on an Orwell binge right now and its interesting to note his optimistic leftist views slowly transition into bitter cynicism of any government.
People you wish you could go back in time and annihilate
>anything outside of the Hellenic or Latin classical period Europe was stone age apes
>2cool4school pseudo-linguists saying things like Proto Indo-European not existing, or English not being a Germanic language
>people taking cultural terms like Celtic/Germanic/Slavic/Latin to be genetic rather than ethno-linguistic
What grinds your gears, /his/?
>Christians will defend this
Also: I just love how you supposed to "love your enemies", but you're always offensive, shitposting and telling others how they'll go to Hell.
Are you like pic related?
Are you a "good person"?
Very few Christians will defend this actually.
Being repulsed by sinners is nothing wrong with it, same as there is nothing wrong with being concerned for the eternal souls of sinners.
You don't sound like a good person to me.
Do your love your enemies?
Also: I didn't say I'm not a Christian, by the way.
Why do you think I wrote "Christians" and not "Christcucks" in OP, hm?
What I'm trying to say is, Christians on 4chan are very agressive.
God is love.
Many of you / us sound hypocrite.
Maybe many of these so-called Christians are just "memeing"...
True believers would never act like this (or like in OP's...

Anyone who's read the Bible knows that Jesus and Paul pretty much worship the poor
Once again, Bible says not to gossip
WILL SOMEONE THINK OF THE GAYS?!?
Pretty sure it says to treat animals nicely
You're an idiot if you made this
Former Christian here. I can't really go with this faith anymore. I've narrowed down my option to two choices: Judaism or Islam. Which one should I go with?
Which one is better at backing up it's theological claims?
What are the pros and cons of each?
Why were the Ancient Greeks so based? Everything about them is awesome. They're like the most wonderfully autistic people of all time. I mean, Socrates pretty much invented shitposting.
Imagine the different city states like the different people in a cliche highschool romcom drama.
I find it an affront of the highest degree to people who have studied Greek to reduce them to such a level, but it's the only way to explain them to someone who has never studied them.
How does it make you feel that future generations from now will view media such as pic related as being accurate portrayals of history, or, at least, how people in our time viewed the past?
