  1. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Fine...but come on...Cersei jealous of Brienne?That was soap opera tv.
  2. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    They definitely want to portay her as sneaky, considering all of her spies and fake smiles in season 1.Still the point stands with Oberyn, no one who plays the "game" should be so blunt and in this...
  3. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Sansa is the exception, everyone else is older in the show.Anyway, that is the reason why the characters are growing up so much in the show, puberty, indeed the timeline is basically the same, a year...
  4. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Good episode.

    However I didn't get why they changed the motive for Florent's burining, IIRC in the books he was burned for treason.Perhaps they really want to make Stannis into a villain.
  5. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Good episode, I am still not conviced of having Jaime arrive before the wedding and Jon meeting Slynt and Thorne so early.
  6. Re: The most influential person of history..

    Rome was bound to be ruled by one man anyway, just considering this severly undermines Augustus over Caesar.
  7. Re: The most influential person of history..

    1)You have to understand that the campaign in gaul was a terribly hard campaign, if Caesar is defeated Rome could be very well incapable of conquering Gaul.Might be someone else conquers it a few...
  8. Re: The most influential person of history..

    Correct but Caesar paved the way for Augustus.Furthermore, Caesar's legacy is actually about getting Rome in central Europe, would the world be so influenced by the west if Rome stayed under the alps?

    Re: Vikings - New History Series

    I love King Ecbert, closet heretics were not rare at all (don't know in his specific case or in saxon England) and people being so affected by the past makes sense, his character resembles Uthred in...
  11. Re: Direct Link Between the Roman Saturnalia Festival and the Medieval Feast of Fools?

    I believe so, I mean festivals and even figures passed on from pagan Rome to christian Rome, look at lupercalia.
  12. Re: Leak of Turkish attack plans for Syria prompts youtube blocking

    Agreed but in this case (Turkey vs Greece) the idea of war is very very ludicrous.
  13. Re: turkey false flag attack in syria

    Paranoid much?

    Greece and Turkey are both in the NATO and there is very little to gain for Turkey..

    You have a good point here.Only when Nomad transformed into settlers they made a lasting impression.I mean, the huns were decisive in driving people west, but in they end they were defeated while...

    That was quite absurd, something like that could be expected by a paesant but the guy who made that comment was obviously a noble/courtier.





    Probably, but I think Ecbert is curious about...
  20. Re: A forgotten holocaust ---- The Mass Killings of Halabja in 1988

    I wonder, Saddam had further plans to persecute Kurds or the community living in Northern Iraq was fairly pacified (subjected)?Did Saddam continue with the killings between post 1 gulf war and 2?

    Which is quite absurd, to get this kind of beating the saxons should have been militia but they have the equipment of professional warriors..

    Throwing users in jail is obviously not working, but can we say the same about the rest of war on drugs?Would the use of legalized hard drugs be higher or lower than today?

  30. Re: Could the Mongols have taken Europe, if Ogedei had not died?

    In this scenario an alliance would be improbable.
  31. Re: Did a Mediterranean fleet ever meet a Viking one in battle?

    Viking fleets had good swift ships excellent for raiding, even inland by using rivers, but they had no business fighting big naval battles.

    All of this is simple conjecture, furthermore the druid was a public figure; they didn't use writing because celts used writing only for ordinary purpose, not for literature or much else.

  39. Re: Did Jesus have genitalia? and If so, why?

    Pseudo?What?

    That is indeed the general consensus by historians.
