>The secret of realizing the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment of existence is: to live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius! Send your ships out into uncharted seas! Live in conflict with your equals and with yourselves! Be robbers and ravagers as soon as you can not be rulers and owners, you men of knowledge! The time will soon past when you could be content to live concealed in the woods like timid deer!
Did Nietzsche invent YOLO?
I read somewhere that Greek legends were often much more lighthearted & silly than people make it seem today, how true is this?
What have you learned from the study of history that you are able to apply to enhance your own life?
Why would somebody like Nietzsche, the faggot who didn't drink alcohol because it nulled pain, and put it equal to Christianity as such, be fine with masturbating like his doctors said. (they thought his illness was due to fapping, but their autism isn't the subject)
So just wondering if anyone had any idea on the language used on this globe or how old it might be I'll post more pics I found it at my local goodwill
What is the difference between German blitzkrieg and Soviet deep battle?
To summarize: deep battle / defense in depth is about setting up multiple lines of defense rather than a single, beefy line so that any force that breaks through the first line has to deal with the second line, any force that breaks through the second line has to deal with the third line, etc.
This was possible mostly due to the Soviet's immense manpower advantage, and the idea was about breaking the momentum of the blitzkrieg by exhausting the attack the deeper it went - until eventually the attackers were so worn out that they could be pushed back and their progress...

How the fuck does National Bolshevism exist? I know it's Russia but I still can't believe there were enough retards to transform this mongoloid-tier idea into an actual political party.

The first part is dumb enough but combined I don't
Of all the gifts God could've given me, he made me really good at shitposting.
What is the theological explanation for this?
I know little of Maltese history but am interested to know which native person /his/ thinks was the most influential in shaping Maltese history. To put this post into context I am interested because i am currently working on a Civ 5 mod which adds Malta as a playable Civilization. My current choice for a leader would be Gerard Thom but am interested to hear what /his/ think.
It's probably to late but lucky for you i know my Maltese history. The island has had many leaders but direct leaders the top two would be these men one had the capital of the island named for him (Valette) and the other led the nation into freedom after no struggle and a polite talk with Britian.

What's the best argument against subjective idealism? Berkeley has pretty much convinced me.
So many of the thread here have been about different types of warriors. (mostly samurai vs knight stuff) but there is an entire academic field dedicated to studying warriors and marital arts from the prospective of anthropology and history.
But while universities are constantly adding new courses and even phd programs in various subcultures this, arguably more important field has sadly remained small with only a few scholars practicing and teaching
So hoplology thread time.

If you want to waste your time...
If you want to know about warfare(including historical) go to military college. They may have retarded doctrines like interdiction and other shit but it's still better than those half-assed biased "studies".
Mostly because it gives you very, very focused and specific knowledge about things very few people care about and on top of it majority of this knowledge is based off retarded biases your profs had, since hard facts about let's say - historical fencing, are hard to get outside of Western Europe because elsewhere the art of fencing died, was poorly documented etc. etc. etc.

What happened at the Battle of Sinai? Are the Jews behind this?
Why do Arabs suck so bad at fighting?
If our empirical perception of reality is questionable, if not mistaken or even completely wrong...
If what I see, taste, feel, believe, if these things I call real and objective are merely a product of eletronic signals going forth and back across my nervous system - a product of my imagination...
Then why shouldn't I, acknowledging this sad, inevitable truth, use my imagination to, instead of trying to comprehend and interpret this uncertain reality with the so called empirical senses, imagine for myself a reality where I'm happy?
If you don't understand biology you shouldn't be making appeals to biological reductionism. If you imagine yourself happy you'll become happy. There's no ontological gap here. Just stop whining.
What's up with Odin? According to traditional PIE religion, Thor should be the boss god because he's the most associated with the sky, shouldn't he? How did Odin displace him, and is there any analogue for him in other religions?
Were the Romans right in associating him with Mercury? They also called the Celtic god Lugh Mercury, but Lugh seems closer to Loki and Prometheus than he does to Odin.
Odin is the God of Wisdom. While Thor is mostly occupied with warfare, Odin is mostly occupied with postponing the Ragnarok, an event that takes place anyway, destroying the world and then ushering in a new world. He's basically a tragic hero, who is fully aware that he's stuck in an infinite loop of creation and destruction, but tries to postpone Ragnarok anyway, because why not
