>all your achievements all your ideas and thaughts and memories are eternally lost
>dont even have consciousness to reflect upon the loss of everything

Why modern united arab nation project failed?

You're in the club and these two walk up to you and slap your gf on her ass. What the fuck do you do?

I think I've met a total of 3 people in my life that are Czechoslovak decent, but literally the majority of people I know are Ukrainian.
Ukrainian immigration to Canada happened back in Austria-Hungary days since Eastern Galicia was extremely overpopulated and life there was pretty shitty. Ukrainians from the Russian controlled territory migrated Eastwards to Siberia and Far East generally, there was a lot of them back in the day there.

Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and Caesar got nothing to honor their name and yet Amerigo Vespucci can't be erased from the maps ever. How it is even fair?
>be greatest all around genius in human history
>be born in the stone age
Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and Caesar got nothing on Ugruk son of Asdruk, yet everyone knows them but not him. Perhaps opportunity is the greater part of success, eh anon?
Who was the most evil person in history? Who's actions had the worst consequences for humanity?
>inb4 morality is a spook
The bombings on german civilians was pretty horrible. Hamburg, dresded and berlin being the largest I think. children, babies, mothers, burned alive in a blazing inferno.. And after that Bolsheviks came in raping an estimated 2million woman and children.
Stalin is prob the most known evil but Churchill is the lesser known evil
Do we do art analysis here?
