How common actually is hanja mixed script in Korea nowadays? The impression I get is 'not very'. What contexts is it still used in, if any, and why did they stop using it very much?
Hanja: 修道 (spiritual discipline), 囚徒 (prisoner), 水都 (city of water), 水稻 (paddy rice), 水道 (waterway), 隧道 (tunnel), 首都 (capital city)
Hangul: 수도 (spiritual discipline/prisoner/city of water/paddy rice/waterway/tunnel/capital city)
What was it that allowed the British to become as dominant as they did?
Why didn't the native americans tame this shit and ride them instead of genociding them?
They rode horses with no saddles and zero guidance.
have you ever tried riding a Paraceratherium? They're pretty cantakerous and because they are so big and strong you can't really control them.
One of my mates fell off and got his skull crushed by a stray foot when he tried to ride one.
The skeletal structure on all the animals listed is actually worse, both calorie and juke wise, than the homo sapien, so there's no point in riding them. The only thing they can do better is top speed, and that's fucking worthless in a winter fucking hellscape where the meta is finding dead corpses and fighting over them, where packs of homo sapien cannot be contested at all.
It would take a few hundred thousand years of domestication for them to be useful in battle, since their psych doesn't have things like honor, and the natives didn't have that...

What went wrong? Militarily, these guys were shit. Asses kicked in WW1 by Austria-Hungary multiple times at Isonzo, and then were utterly fucked in WW2 by the allies. The only times they really won a war was their annexation of Libya and I guess the Austro-Prussian war.
okay, /his/, i need help. I am in denial of religion, but i feel i must belong to a group. suggest me some religions, /his/
Patton was right in wanting to attack Russia after WWII avoiding the Cold War and the Berlin Wall?
Why do humanities majors say this?
What went wrong with the decolonization of Africa? Did they rush it or did it not come fast enough? I noticed that Francafrique still acts as the french empire lite
Colonization was the problem. It established economies that were dependent on exporting to the western world, and installed or supported governments that would keep it that way. Nothing much about this changed over the course of the twentieth century.
Where should I start and focus to get a good grip on Evola?
Is Rome series historically accurate?
how historically accurate does a film, show, or play have to be to be considered historically accurate?
Would a movie that is 75% historically accurate be considered a historically accurate movie?
Let's talk food history.
Any favorite TV programs or books about historical food/food in history?
Supersizers Go was one of my favorites. I wish they would have done it for different countries as well.
Back in 2012 I went to a Titanic dinner where they recreated the 10-course dinner meal from the first class. Not my pic, but it was good times.
Ive always had an idea for a book, that tells world history through certain dishes/ ingredients and features historic recipes.
I think dumplings should be one, With heavy emphasis on China and the silk trade.
Perhaps the humble potato or tea for the colonial era.
Anyway what do you think /his/?
How come they called it the holy Roman empire when it wasn't holy, Roman or an empire?
I'm sure you already know this, but that soundbite was said after the empire had decayed into a sad collection of german princedoms surrounding austria.
It was a little bigger when it started.
If you could live your life in any time period in human history pre-1900 which time period would you choose?
I'd like to go back to around 1000 A.D. Scandinavia when vikings were becoming Christians, not sure why. It just seems like an interesting time

I have huguenot ancestry. Tell me about my people.
How on earth was my question directed to muslims?
I'm reading the Phenomenology and I guess I'm not entirely sure exactly what is being said.
I'm up to the chapter on force; so I'm pretty early in the book. I'm using The Logic of Desire as a secondary, but I'd like a second source as well that maybe spells things out for me.
Like what exactly is he saying about absolute truth in the introduction and early chapters. Is he saying that we can know the thing in itself by studying its appearance, or is he saying that there is no such thing as a thing in itself at all and that we can only...

Look up H.S. Harris's "Hegel's Ladder", which is a comprehensive two volume study of the entire Phenomenology. It goes paragraph by paragraph, and it spells out pretty anything you could spell out in every passage. You can find it on Bookzz, though, as a heads up, it's a .djvu and not a .pdf.
