    Wasps are an important part of the environment!
  5. Re: Why Easter is less important to western societies compared to Christmas?

    It would be more interesting if we used the Liturgical Calender. Easter might be more important than Christmas. However Winter's Yule is more important than Spring's May Day.

    Verr, if that was...

    Re: Remastered Age of Mythology!

    Well if you're like me and you aren't sure where, two moves and ten years later, your disks are, its kind of nice to get your favorite throwback in an improved form. If you already have AOM and AOT...
  7. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    If giving money and support to a politician who has a platform which you favor and which benefits you in some way is bribery I think you're basically calling for an end to democracy.

    Re: The most influential person of history..

    I still think the Chinese identity has more historical currency than the Christian or Muslim Identity. People can change religions easier than they can change their nationalities.

    Re: The Most Terrifying Event of WW2?

    The holocaust was the worst part of WW2, but I still think the worst event in human history was the 1258 Sack of Baghdad. The lowest estimates (i.e. skeptics) are estimating 200,000 civilians put to...
  11. Re: Would a Scottish warrior have used a falchion at the battle of Stirling Bridge?

    Well I'd argue that Scotland was English by the 7th century as well, but everyone wants them to be blue woad raiders because they were cool in AOE.
  12. Re: Was Operation Barbarossa a winnable campaign for Germany, regardless of how it was carried out?

    It's important to understand that Hitler was not planning to start his main war aims, that is against Britain, France, and Russia until the mid 1940s. The annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia...

    "The only thing the French like more than teaming up with the Muslims to fight Catholics is to team up with Catholics to fight Muslims. To be honest one must wonder if in fact the French just like...
  14. Re: Why did Japan stop using helmets after the Boshin War- before the Second Sino-Japanese war?

    I'm pretty sure Jingasas were not made of metal for the most part. I'm thinking wicker, leather, or lacquered paper. These provide fairly good protection against a glancing blade but are basically...
  15. Re: Would a Scottish warrior have used a falchion at the battle of Stirling Bridge?

    I know. The same old German term appears in the Vlachs of Romania. My point was that Cumbria is one of the British areas where the British held out as a distinct people. Cumbria was the British area...
  16. Re: What would actually happen if Russia invaded the Baltic countries?

    It would be foolish for Russia to risk a global war with NATO over the Baltics. Unless they were planning to take Paris it wouldn't be worth it.

    However I predict we'd be singing the Marseillaise...
  17. Re: The disconnect between the 'Leitkultur' and the actual society

    They can't be more obsessed than the History channel was before it stopped making history programs.
  18. Re: Vkings were like the SS, and Scandinavians should apologize.

    I'm not apologizing for my distant Jewish Bessarabian relatives killing your distant Romanian relatives.

    Maybe they shouldn't have betrayed the motherland?
  19. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Poll Test.



    I would think that is the definition of failing at politics.

  22. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    I've never heard of anti Indian sentiments in the US (tech support people excepted). They're generally considered model immigrants. I mean obviously a racist is going to be a racist, but outside that...

    Re: McDonald's Under Pressure in Russia

    I could eat 3 happy meals a day for weeks and I'd probably not suffer real consequences. I'm a 2500-3000 calorie a day sort of person. But obviously that's not going to fly with a 5 year old. So yeah...

    Why does McDonald's care which Russia controls the Crimea so long as the Turks are kept out... I doubt McDonald's regular fare is Halal and changing the menu would be a pain in the ass.

    Re: The new E.A.Poe statue in Boston

    The monument in Baltimore (where he died) is far better. He is a Bostonian so he should have a statue, especially in his eponymous square, but I'm not in love with the one depicted. It's a bit over...

  34. Re: Why can pikemen run in phalanx?! And why cant hoplites run?!

    No, Alexander's Foot Guards appear to have done a quick march, and stormed the enemy line, but calling that running is silly.

    Hoplites definitely carried javelins in most sources so yes, they...

    Yeah the monuments to traitors suspected of war crimes against the US are kind of weird. But you know, Mississippi is pretty :wub:ed up in general.

  39. Re: Would a Scottish warrior have used a falchion at the battle of Stirling Bridge?

    Contrary to popular opinion the only different between the two sides at Stirling were the size of forces and the colors of their surcoats. We're talking mail armored professionals for the most part....
