so i think we can all agree pic related best president
Pretty much, yeah
Top-brass military generals (that achieved their position through actual meritocracy) and have been through times of wars always make for the best leaders of countries regardless of time period or system of governance.
Is a place like 4chan detrimental to the mind and its ability to learn?
>use of made up internet slang
Do you guys feel like you are on the same threads every day for the past couple of years or no?
Do you guys think people actually come on here to discuss religious ideas?
Two people arguing, both sides just end up with the same opinion just stronger.
On D-Day, why didn't allied warships bombard the beachhead with white phosphorus rounds to create a smokescreen for the landing infantry?
The plan was to bombard the beaches with HE to outright kill the defenders.
This worked for some beaches, but the bombardment on Omaha was ineffective due to Navy weenies being unwilling to get close enough to the shore.
Anyone else fap to /his/ paintings?
When I was younger, I imagine I was these boys fucking those women to submission and pregnancy before enslaving them. I also fapped to plump women and horse paintings. It's how I developed my big butt and milf fetishes and how I got into straight shota and MLP. So, which /his/ paintings do/did you fap to?
Does he have a point?
Would Russia still be shit today if the revolutions hadn't succeeded?
If there were no revolutions and Russia still had a Czar, then yes.
If there were no revolutions but Russia eventually became a democracy, then maybe
If russia had the one democratic socialist revolution, and only that one, then probably no.
What are you meant to do with your life?
To put a more historical slant on it, what did people do in their spare time in the past?
I spend most of my time shitposting on 4chan, playing vidya, and watching religious debates on Youtube. There's probably more to life than this but I can't quite figure out what. Furthermore this kind of time wasting wasn't possible in the past, so what did they do? Did the Romans shitpost in the real life forvm? Did they just not have spare time?
I think this is an area where philosophy is lacking. We can argue...

Eat. Sleep. Maybe have sex. Perhaps even reproduce. Maybe get really good at something that you'll be remembered for it (unlikely given your statistically guaranteed to be another boring average schlub). Count yourself lucky that unlike 99% of your ancestors you have the time and comfort to ponder such questions.
What did the Austrian-Hungarian Empire do during ww1? I remember back in high school that we just learned that they started WW1, but then it became Germany vs the world.
They beat up Serbia (eventually) and then did little of effect.
They spent most of their war effort on the Eastern Front, usually losing to the Russians and needing the Germans to bail them out. They sent a few large siege artillery pieces west, IIRC.
They also fought the Italians up around the Alps, in a front that really didn't move much at all.
I think they also had some submarine action in the Med, but I don't know about that theater too well.
Plus they suffered a lot of nationalist insurrections that eventually tore them apart. This was mostly down to three things:
>the entente governments supported governments-in-exile of all the nations of the empire, even the ones that did not have popular mandates from their own people
>Slavs on the eastern front did not like fighting other Slavs to further a German cause
and obviously the good old extremist Balkan nationalism that we all know and love.
What was it like living in the Soviet Union? Sounds fucking awful. How accurate is this btw?
Which country was the biggest JUST of WW1 and why was it Russia?
I haven't posted here since /his/ first started. Nice to see that it hasn't turned into /pol/ 2.0 against all expectations. I'm amazed to be honest.
Err to keep this on topic and avoid a ban why is it that in 1870 blacks were allowed to vote in South Africa but in 1970 they weren't?
different country, and different people
Question for people who know about SA. What about the considerable minorities of indians malays and mixed/colored people. were they allowed to vote?
Welcome to the Salty Spitoon, how Übermensch are you?
>Dieu et Mon Droit
What did they mean by this?
Also general monarchy thread
>Dieu et Mon Droit
God and my right
Crusoe that shit next time
Also, does a monarchy cost or create money?
Why did Amedeo Avogadro look like such an ayylmao?
Will they be looked at with reverence, in the same strain of Persia, China and Rome? Or with the controversial distaste of the Ottomans? Or will they be remembered as a footnote when they're stomped out of their meagre 400 year existence
