It's March 15 again, national Holiday in Hungary on the occasion of the Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-49. I wrote about this event before both on March 15 and October 6 while both date offer a different perspective. I also wrote how the country's present-day political groups injects their narration into celebration and commemoration, but especially those are obnoxius the most who have major influence on the media, like the Fidesz now. And elections will be held on April 8.
I'm not sure what to write now. I wrote about the arch of the events in the October 6 thread and I don't want to specify that more. So...

Now that I post this I know more or less where to go, and have some text already. I'll post stuff throughout the day in small blocks, I'll keep it short (and sweet) as I have other things to attend as well.

>In the mid-19th century, Hungary's middle class consisted of a small number of German and Jewish merchants
>After 1890 the government succeeded in Magyarizing educated Slovaks, Germans, Croats, and Romanians and co-opting them into the bureaucracy, thus robbing the minority nationalities of an educated elite.

Where did you find these?
While the first statement holds lots of truths. All notable towns had large population of Burghers of German origin. Jews congregated mainly in Pest I think but I'm not sure.
The second sounds like an outright lie and makes no sense. Even all before that, in the days of the Austrian Empire, when even the Hungarian language wasn't used as official (Latin and German were) the heroes of the Slavic and Vlah national awakening were sat in high ranking cozy jobs.

The article don't give exact source of that second passage you quoted (citation needed hehheh). I think it's a baseless statement, they should prove with actual data.
But while some stuff in that paragraph sounds something which can be backed up with documents (for example about laws and such), the quoted on the other hand sounds something very anecdotal and hard to prove - but emotionally very mobilizing for those who are members of the said groups. I think that line is there for exactly this reason.

Yes! They finally came. The delivery guy was a total cunt, too. I used to deliver pizzas myself and if I was late I’d apologize. He was trying to make me feel bad about calling to store to ask about the status of my delivery and shoved the pizzas in my face and literally said, “Here!”

So for the first time in my life I did not tip. Uncivil behavior shall not be rewarded.

I am not an expert on art. /disclaimer

Part of one of my high school spanish classes dealt mainly with learning about various "spanish" artists in spanish. The first of which was El Greco was probably my favorite. What led me to re-visit this subject was a hand symbol in one his portraits that pops up in a couple other of his paintings and what it's meaning is. My teacher explained it as being a secret sign christians used during their persecution, but that didn't make too much sense to me for a variety of reasons, and it seems to be a mystery still.

This site seems to go quite in detail into the matter.
His most notable peculiarity in painting was when depicting religious scenes or figures they'd be normally quite elongated and sometimes downright unnatural looking which drew the ire of some at the time but his natural scenes were depicted in a natural and realistic manner.
Included are a couple of triptychs:
>A work, such as an altarpiece, consisting of three painted or carved panels that are hinged together.
These are attributed to him and are circa 1568. They lack the elongated figures of a lot of his works but pre-date a alot of the ones I found with such features by about 10 years, so they may in fact be his after all, like I said I'm no expert.

I came to find out looking further into it that he, and probably other artists as well, who would paint or sculpt for churches were usually involved in much more than just doing some paintings or frescoes. He did a lot of wooden sculpting and created altars and other decorations for various churches reportedly, but they were wood and none of them apparently survived. Wikipedia says there is a sculpture but I couldn't find a picture of it.

I'm not trying to hijack this into a book thread but I don't want to create a new thread for my question and literature is an art.
Does Bernd feel sometimes emptiness after finishing certain books and feels a bit sad it ended? Time to times I have this feels and not necessarily with books I enjoyed the most. Maybe it's something to do with the characters like I used to them "being around". Yeah something like this. The books I find awesome I read fast but on the all rightish books I can sit for some time (if they are long like several volumes of ~600-1000 pages) so it has time to be absorbed into my daily life for a longer period then I got to an end and a part of my life vanishes with that. I'm not saying I'm mourning it for days but it's an unexpected pang when I read the last lines.

That pic is an illuminated miniature in a copy of Quintus Curtius Rufus' book about Alexander the Great. There are quite a few, the original existed up to the 9th century. By that time it become pretty gappy the iron teeth of time and the storms of history demanded a few pages out of it. Surprisingly it has an easily accessible Hungarian translation.
The conception and the birth of Alexander was at the beginning of the book (shocking), sadly those parts have the most hole. From the summary of the first too books reveals nothing about the fidelity (or the lack of it) of Mrs. Philippos. So the affair with the dragon most likely the product of the illustrator's imagination or opinion.

Dragon Worship in European Noble families Bernd 02/25/2018 (Sun) 18:19:53 [Preview] No. 13830 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Don't know if I should post this question on Fringe or not, I don't want an esoteric religious fag perspective. Just a historical one...

How come in noble families such as the degenerate Bathories for example we see Dragon Worship and in general how come we see wide usage of Dragons in family emblems, crests and so forth? I'm gonna be frank here aside from a very CURSORY understanding of Norse mythology, and knowledge about the Greeks and Romans, Eureopean pagan mythology is something that completely alludes me.

>The Macedonian queen Olympias, mother of Alexander the Great, sits holding her belly as her ladies-in-waiting leave her bedchamber, unaware of the ram-headed man slinking into the room. This strange figure is actually the magician and Egyptian king Nectanebo. Most versions of the legend of Alexander claim that Nectanebo, the last native Egyptian pharoah, prophesied for Olympias that she would be visited and conceive a child by Ammon, an Egyptian god with the body of a man and a ram's head. While King Philip was away on military campaign, Nectanebo disguised himself as Ammon, visited the queen's bedroom, and impregnated her. The resulting child was Alexander, whose legendary life was widely celebrated in the Middle Ages. In the Getty Museum's copy of the Mirror of History, Alexander's popular story is told in a series of eight miniatures.

explains why I've seen Alexander portrayed with ram horns, but why is, if that's supposed to Ammon or a priest impersonation Ammon I wonder why he's depicted as a dragon in that particular work.

The 13 Martyrs of Arad Bernd 10/06/2017 (Fri) 16:27:19 [Preview] No. 10930 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Its 6th October the commemoration day of the 13 Martyrs of Arad. It's not a national holiday but schools for example usually do some form remembrance.
On this day in 1849 twelve general and one colonel of the Hungarian Defense Force was executed as part of the retaliation of the Habsburg Court after the 1848-49 war of independence. On the same day suffered martyrdom at Pest the prime minister of the first responsible government, Count Batthyány Lajos too.

To go on in larger extent what went down during the revolution and the following war would be long and wouldn't really fit for the subject so I'll write little this and little that.

He is easily googled, and looks like he is relatively known person in Buryatian historian community at least. Although sometimes he looks "fringy", he located gold of Kolchak in Baikal etc, i.e. articles about him have some "shock" value. Or he just likes PR much. Although he looks like scientist, not pseudoscience freak as many others, but he has some freaky style if you'd read about his discoveries. I couldn't comment of his authenticity because I'm not into archeology.

Here is some large article about him personally: http://nbrb.ru/?p=24217
He found multiple archeological things like ostrich eggs in Buryatia, something related to Baikal water levels etc. Petefi is also in list.

Here is interview about Petefi: http://ulan.mk.ru/articles/2016/08/10/buryatskiy-kraeved-aleksey-tivanenko-naznachen-sopredsedatelem-mezhdunarodnogo-instituta-petefi.html
He says about some documents that were found etc, also about Petofi at all, his life and poetry.

Here is pretty large (26 pages) document about Petefi with images, some docs and links to other works: http://uuchurch.ru/Petefi.pdf

He also wrote a large book: D0%A2%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D1%83%D0%B7%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA_%D0%A1%D0%B8%D0%B1%D0%B8%D1%80%D0%B8.html?id=jgn2jwEACAAJ&redir_esc=y">https://books.google.ru/books/aboutD0%A2%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D1%83%D0%B7%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA_%D0%A1%D0%B8%D0%B1%D0%B8%D1%80%D0%B8.html?id=jgn2jwEACAAJ&redir_esc=y
I couldn't easily find it in internet, libgen has only his other works. They also say that Hungarian version will be available (or available already).

I didn't really fully read this, it is pretty large topic. From a first look: some local sources, metrics (that were lost after) and documents say, that Petefi was alive in Barguzin, had a wife, got kids. Some poetry were found too, and "Hungarian scientists said that they are real". About female bones: expedition that said this had some political issues.

There is also link to this related book: https://www.antikvarium.hu/konyv/armando-lucifero-petofi-sandor-sziberiaban-341506

Duolingo could be better I think. They need to, in addition to their current "lessons" need a general vocab thing similar to how an Anki flash card system would work and I feel like, at least for the language I'm studying, but probably all languages would have some benefit to it as well, if they had exercises where you'd diagram sentences so you could familiarize yourself with the grammatical structures better.
I fucking hated diagramming sentences in school but it really drilled that shit into your head.

Because you nihilistic fuckwit, some of us don't want to die without leaving some sort of mark behind. Whether it's a tangible accomplishment, memes, or just a positive impact towards those we love. For most though this doesn't stem from altruism, but as evidence that they were alive and managed to do something with their fleeting existence.

In my opinion, both those who do it for altruism, and selfish proof of existence are in the right. Life may have no meaning, but that doesn't mean we should be mindless parasites floating through the noisy cacophony of space. Nor does it mean we should be mindless virtue signaling sycophants with no distinguishing traits.

I talked to my dad about the cryogenics. His response to it was negative. "What's the point of living if everyone you know is dead?"

I found that statement to be strange since there's always people who you will never encounter again anyways whether they're dead or not, so what difference would it make? Like moving to a new school or graduation.
