    Re: Political Cartoons

    Universities are gulags of the mind.
    Why won't you apologise for someone else?
    We must militarise!
    I am only intolerant of SJWs because one did a mean tweet therefore Popper
    OMG [someone] are...
  2. Re: Google is officially a threat to democracy. Executives exposed admitting the company is trying to ''prevent another 2016''

    Wait OP is quoting Project Veritas as fact now? What's next, quote WH40K codices as evidence of US military trends?
  3. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    I don't think Cleese can hear you though over the sound of his unpaid taxes.

    I think if you dodge taxes in your own country you should lose your citizenship. Its a form of treason to benefit from...
  4. Re: Google is officially a threat to democracy. Executives exposed admitting the company is trying to ''prevent another 2016''

    This sort of divisive online behaviour is often seen as successful Russian interference (and these idiots do serve Russia's interests by weakening the US) but the US has always had a plentiful supply...

    Re: Political Cartoons

    Can we have an addendum to Godwin's law about the probability of Popper being mentioned?

    Interesting guy, I googled him because I'd only heard the name vaguely (I think he was a mathematician,...
  6. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    My pet theory is that it takes thousands of years for a group to get itself sorted with alcohol. I could be wrong though, the Gin Craze in London (a mix of new tech and increased sugar resources...
  7. Re: Oregon Republicans flee and hide to delay vote, police sent to find them

    Well I believe that there are standard parliamentary rules (and even the quaint broken systems of government in the US have something like them) that allows the Sergeant-at-Arms or equivalent officer...

    Re: What ethnic group is this supposed to be?

    ...is that his helmet or does our hero have a severed head tucked under his arm?

    Anyway i'd say his ethnicity is computergame Eastern.
  9. Re: Oregon Republicans flee and hide to delay vote, police sent to find them

    This has happened before, some Texas Dems went into hiding to prevent the undoing of some Gerrymander or other longstanding injustice.

    US politics is a dropped plate of mash.

    Re: 2019 Iran - USA War... Almost

    Bizarre to think anyone imagines Trump acts rationally on questions of foreign policy. The man accused Qatar of being a haven of terrorism on the say-so of a Saudi prince, and has claimed victory in...

    Re: Political Cartoons

    Cartoons are not good or bad in and of themselves. If the NYT wants to change its format that's their business.

    The Netanyahu cartoon has a context of old Jew-hating propaganda. Maybe its not in...
  12. Re: Kulturkampf: Bismarck vs. Papal Infallibility

    I disagree. I don't think you're required to try and find legitimacy on both sides of a argument, especially such an extreme point as papal infallibility.

    The Catholic church as a whole struggled...
  13. Re: Kulturkampf: Bismarck vs. Papal Infallibility

    Bismarck is a staggeringly powerful figure. I think he is best known for his statement "Not through speeches and majority decisions will the great questions of the day be decided—that was the great...
  14. Re: Iran stopping part of the implementation of the nuclear deal

    I don't think the mullahs are using the same playbook, there's a chance some of them actually believe in paradise.

    The tanker attacks are Gulf of Tonkin level bulldust and IMHO damage US...

    Is their a less pronounced carbohydrate digestion enzyme/gut flora/tolerance issue with the Mesopotamian/Anatolian farmer wave? I imagine the "barrier" to eating a cereal diet for HGs is lower as it...
  16. Re: Jo Brand did nothing wrong, but the BBC and police did.

    Cool rant, nice you can get an internet connection back to reality from wherever tf you are living.

    I have to say you fall into a very sad stereotype, the humourless ideologue. Everything is black...
  17. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    I wonder if wine played a part. Alcohol in naive populations causes havoc. No doubt Galli and Germani had mead etc but the Hellenes and Romans were producing the sweet stuff on an almost industrial...
  18. Re: Jo Brand did nothing wrong, but the BBC and police did.

  20. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    I wonder why the preferred elite culture along the Rhine changed from a Gallic to a Germanic one? Certainly it wasn't Caesar's invasion as the process is in train before then. Perhaps there was a...
  21. Re: Kulturkampf: Bismarck vs. Papal Infallibility

    Its very true when you say the Catholic church had a very weak hand in the 1870's. With the failure of a return to Catholic Ultra monarchy in France despite the election of McMahon as President, the...
  22. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    This is why I love this site, that is news to me. The state of play when I briefly studied the European Iron Age back in the 1980's was that the increasingly militarised Gallic culture was falling...

  24. Re: Commie terrorists BTFO. Bakery awarded $11 million after being targeted by student activist protests

  25. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    Edit: has anyone made the point Rome did conquer most of modern Germania under Augustus? It was not worth the Hispania/Illyria/Vietnam style manpower drain to hold at the time. I think Conon's point...
  26. Re: Tucker Carlson: "almost every nation on Earth has fallen under the yoke of tyranny — the metric system"

    Imposing a common system of weights and measures is usually part of a conquest. That said the French haven't conquered the US. The British voluntarily adopted metrics while retaining pints, and no on...
  27. Re: Commie terrorists BTFO. Bakery awarded $11 million after being targeted by student activist protests

    Its a fair point that these stupid smears get thrown around. US politics is full of lazy smears, some Republicans were calling Obama "Socialist' while he pumped free money into Wall Street, we have...

    Your best post ever. 2/10.
  29. Re: Commie terrorists BTFO. Bakery awarded $11 million after being targeted by student activist protests

    Irrelevant off topic garbage. Your inability to use English correctly makes your posting unintelligible. There is no logic in your assertions, your OP or your thread title: its a mess.

  31. Re: Commie terrorists BTFO. Bakery awarded $11 million after being targeted by student activist protests

    What a stupid off topic question. You have stated some whining Uni students are terrorists: aside from indicating you have a very low fear threshold, thats an very immature and disrespectful bit of...
  32. Re: Commie terrorists BTFO. Bakery awarded $11 million after being targeted by student activist protests

    Point 1-3: "Commie terrorists"
    Point 4-6: "sue all universities"
    I can't be bothered reading through all your guff but it looks suspiciously like you're following the book yourself.

    I have to...
  33. Re: Could the Gauls have won the Gallic Wars? And how?

    Roman politics included the cursus honorum, which required conquests and victories for up and coming officials. The system was clattering and breaking down when Caesar abused it to get his 10 year...
  34. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    1. Rome did conquer, and civilise, some regions of modern Germany.

    2. Roman rule was typically based on cities, where local and imported elites were persuaded to enjoy the benefits (and shoulder...
  35. Re: Did the Romans know there were other lands such as in China, Russia, India, Mongolia, Southern Africa, etc?

    Obviously Russia only became a toponym in the last few centuries of the East Roman Empire (c. 1000?). We know East Roman missionaries travelled in those parts in fierce competition with the much...

    Old man yells at dark cloud? "Its not like it was when I was young". He used to mock what he has become.
