Why did man never domesticate other animals for the purpose of riding? It took a long time to breed horses to do this task and there are animals with much higher birthrates, cheaper, and hardier that could have done it. Why not breed to make ridable extremely large war pigs or rams even bulls?
Is Aegyptus a name that was completely made up for the region, like Greece and Persia, or does it actually resemble whatever the ancient Egyptians actually called their country?
>The ancient Egyptian name of the country was km.t, which means black land
Tell me about Toulouse. Was it involved in anything notable?
no stormfag memes please
At the point of his election he was a boring party bureaucrat with predictable policies, why would anyone give a fuck about him being part of a underground movement in the late 40s? He didn't kill random people or women and children, just used violence in the pre-state period like other american allies that came to power in their countries.
Do you know anything about your heritage, and do you take pride in it? Do you identify with certain cultures or civilizations that existed in the past?
As a Canadian with little knowledge of my heritage, I envy people who live in countries with long and expansive histories
People often argue about who was "last true knight" or the "last true Roman."
Who was the last true Bolshevik?
Why did the British evacuate Boston, surely they had the capability to cram it with troops and just break the Americans with sheer numbers.
Was there any example in history when one person's foolish action leads his country into total destruction ?
What is all of German history.
What went wrong? Was Mao a military genius of some kind to win against them?
nah, they just ended up having less rice farmers than the other side as the war progressed
nationalist armies that are actually fighting at least in principle for the nation will tend to have an advantage over 'nationalist' armies that are really just pawns of foreign business interests.
Mao's communists weren't 'world-wide revolution' types. They were hardcore chinese nationalists with communist social and economic views.

i know they go for about 0.60 to about 20 dollars AUD but i look some photos of the bottle and my one has numbers the top and bottom. look at the photos for more detail.
So... What is religion with the best afterlife for the follower? I want to convert. But in Christianity you could suffer in hell, if you don't follow like hundred of a pointless rules. I want something more "noob friendly" so to speak, without horrible punishment and other things like that. Easy life, easy afterlife.
since they don't believe in hell
not according to the orthodox
but I am sure you could be considered some form of a jew since the Torah allows slave converts
or just explore your family tree like all those "newly discovered" jews do in America and say that your great-grandmothers cousins gardereners wife owned a menorah and start wearing a yarmulke while changing your name to Moshe ben Yisrael or any other stereotypical name
What was his problem?
He wondered why birds and turtles looked different depending on their environment and came up with a neat little solution.
Can someone explain how random nigger tribe in Africa can use language with dozens of cases or absolute direction system instead of relative, but powerful nation like America uses casual as fuck language that is simplified beyond believe from a proper English that is also degenerate version of whatever was before in Middle Ages, which also probably just some horrible, twisted pidgin Latin.
When you do nothing all except nigger about and pick berries, you have the time to make up all kinds of mumbo jumbo squiggle shit.
The West is too busy building great things and exploring the universe to worry too much about language.
because complexity of a language does not depende upon complexity of the civilisation and because as languages get bigger and come into contact with more people then superfluous features get dropped as people have to communicate with each other and don't have time for random rules. This is especially true in the case of English which is basically a creole.

Who is wrong here ?
One is pure ressentiment.
The other is soulless capitalism.
How close did the belligerents of WWII come to using gas?
Found this early war training film for US tankers and the amount of time spent on prep for gas attacks was surprising. Starts around 3:05;
Japan used gas weapons in China early in the Second Sino-Jap War.
Since they missed out on the main action of WWII, they were noobs in it. They used the canister gasses instead of gas shells and shitloads of friendly fire incidents occured when the wind blew the direction of a gas cloud to Japanese troops.

>"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."
- Matthew 10:34
>"But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."
- Luke 22:36, NIV
Jesus was a warmongering psycho, of course. That's why he also said things like;
>A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
- John 13:34
And inspired his followers to say things like;
>We love because he first loved us.
-1 John 4:19
Why did they make the fighting in Marco Polo ridiculous?
Making the fighting look like some fantasy chow yun fat dbz shit?
Like really? That skinny faggot beating that swole nigga with some dainty ass moves. Like shit nigga this aint supposed to be some fantasy chinese martial arts movie. this is meant to be realistic
Could/did ancient chinks really fight like this back then?
>Like shit nigga this aint supposed to be some fantasy chinese martial arts movie. this is meant to be realistic
I didn't watch it, but doesn't it have the Pope fucking around in Central Asia for some reason?
So apparently Islamic scholars used some sort of seven-clime system for categorizing peoples based on the environment they lived in, but I can't find any good sources on how it worked, or even what the climes were. Anyone have anything about it?
pic not really related?
Pages 101-122, there's a bit of discussion on how the zones were determined preceding it (ctrl+f "zone" should help)
Was Electoral College a tool of tyrants ?
Which country do you save /his/?
What's so special about this?
why is he wearing a meme blade from the AC games?
I guess the Germanics have always been kebabs, huh.
Reminder that hitler was outnumbered by germans, confirming his race tgeory as true.
ITT: We discuss our favorite obscure historical empires. Pic related, it's the historic borders of the ancient Judean Empire.
Did he secretly disdain his German allies?
It is fairly well known that he was not a fan of Hitler, especially early on. He was one of the few leaders that stood up to Hitler during his first attempt at Anschluss. There is also documentation of him criticizing German racial theory. He only allied in order to secure lands. As German dominance grew, he basically became more subservient to Germany
