    Re: Vikings (Season 5 Trailer)

    I think it's mostly based on sagas, just with no gods or other supernatural elements. Otherwise, the show seems to have some good acting, so if you can stomach the awful costumes/armours, misplaced...

    Re: Some professors are idiot savants

    Which is funny considering that there are enough non-military historians who are lacking intellectual nuance and exhibit wildly unprofessional behaviour.

    To be sure, there is a rather large subset...
  3. Re: Yet another disaster for the UK labor party

    I think the bigger problem for Labour is that they despise the working class and cater to the woke upper-middle-class urban crowd instead. There are only so many votes to be gained from that. And...

    The problem is, that's not likely going to happen even if Turkey were to do as you said. Germany and Western Europe (and even the US, Canada, and Australia, or so I hear) have acknowledged and...

    Re: Godfather is the Best Drama Ever

    That's basically the "Seinfeld is unfunny" trope. I.e. the trailblazing IP is seen in hindsight and judged with the standards of the present.

  6. Re: Is BLM more racist and dangerous than the KKK or Q Anon or Antifa

    Cool, that doesn't really tell me anything but whatever.

    I don't know, I'm not into that kind of thing. Why don't you tell me instead? Who is this "Q" friend of yours and what does he want?

    Possible yes (minus the stupid blonde wig Farrell had, no idea why they gave him that. Should've gone with his natural hair). As for likelihood, the best bet is to go for the looks of people with...
  12. Re: Changes in the phenotype of Swedish and Europid individuals and implications thereof.

    The OP is Chinese, how do you infer he's a "white supremacist"? Just because his approach to population genetics is flawed? I'm sorry but we Europeans are not responsible for arguments made by...

    I'm going to miss the oblique accusations of white supremacism launched by some posters here.

  15. Re: Changes in the phenotype of Swedish and Europid individuals and implications thereof.

    The issue is sample size (and methodology). Having just a few pictures is too random to indicate much of anything.



    I doubt that has much to do with the landscape tbh.

  20. Re: ‘Soup Nazi’ joke is no longer funny, a restaurateur learns - After an outcry, the owner of the new Soup Nazi Kitchen in downtown Everett is changing the name.

  23. Re: Changes in the phenotype of Swedish and Europid individuals and implications thereof.

    I don't understand what you're trying to say here. Black Americans are bigger on average than regular black Africans, I'm sure there are statistics on that.
  24. Re: Changes in the phenotype of Swedish and Europid individuals and implications thereof.

    I think most of it has to do with nutrition - until recently, (if my memory serves me correctly) Euro-Americans tended to be taller and altogether larger than their European relatives, due to being...
  25. Re: ‘Soup Nazi’ joke is no longer funny, a restaurateur learns - After an outcry, the owner of the new Soup Nazi Kitchen in downtown Everett is changing the name.

    Do you think it's OK to assault people or damage their property because you're unsure of a (probably culture-specific) symbol or word they use, and suspect it to be something offensive to you?
  26. Re: ‘Soup Nazi’ joke is no longer funny, a restaurateur learns - After an outcry, the owner of the new Soup Nazi Kitchen in downtown Everett is changing the name.

    As a German critic wrote ca. 30 years ago, the resistance to the Third Reich is growing by the day.



    Yeah, he obviously miscalculated the ratio of pop culture nerds to criminals in the area.
  27. Re: Massive Rise In Racial Attacks in the United States
