How much you know about the effects of the weather and it's changes on the human body?
I have a pal with a bad knee he was probably an adventurer which hurts in certain circumstances like when storm comes and such. But I think about other stuff as well, joint and headaches, lack of focus, blood pressure etc.
What could be the cause? The changes of atmospheric pressure? Humidity? Something else?

Air pressure I don't think is the factor, because then you'd have similar problems when going up or down. Air pressure generally varies by about 25mbar, that's approximately 200m altitude difference. It's probably linked to humidity. Or could it be from electrical effects? Humid air is much more conductive, and convection affects atmospheric electric field (which is why lightnings occur).

>What can you do really when you get a notice an a-bomb is coming your way when some grinning gentlemen decided to push buttons?

USSR technically had bomb shelters with stuff (gas masks, food) in every proper city, these shelters must be located in close vicinity to everyone. Every factory had shelters (they often used them as dump storage though), metro was designed to be a shelter etc. Really it wasn't so good everywhere, but big cities had relatively good shelter coverage, although some basements of commieblocks aren't really good protection from nuclear bombing. After collapse many shelters were abandoned, some replaced by stores, some remained. Some years ago government decided to fix this but situation isn't much better.

But it is actually ok, especially in Moscow. There are so big amount of bombs targeting it, so it is better to burn in nuclear fire than die slowly in half-collapsed basement or metro. But it doesn't matter at all, because most people couldn't get into shelter in 20 min (time until American rockets hit the city). I guess I'll spend first 10 minutes just to deciding if this is a drill or not, and then will happily die.



Battles Bernd 07/16/2017 (Sun) 10:27:19 [Preview] No. 8950 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

All right, let's move forward a bit with the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.
These annals follow the years from Augustus (with an honorary mention of Julio Kaiser) to the last Norman king Stephen of Blois. I used a copy from the Project Gutenberg which is a compilation of several copies, of course neither of which the original one. The storms of history and such.
The original and the first copies were probably written at the times of Alfred the Great then they continuously logged new events into them. This makes the post-Alfred stuff contemporary observations and the pre-Alfred events second-hand information added from other sources. This shows in the length and detail of the records ofc.
I only gathered the notes on battles and a great divide can be observed in the style of these descriptions about Alfred's time. I grouped the quotes by this divide.

First I'll post the not so interesting lines. Well, lots of good stuff can be found in those too but neither mentions any fleeing.
Next I'll post those which I found interesting for some reason, most of them mentions some kind of fleeing and pursuit.
Would be nice to post pretty pictures as illustration sadly I lack of suitable ones.
Also most likely I won't finish this today, there are some conclusions waiting to be concluded.

Here comes the first half of the "boring" stuff, the short notes from Roman, Briton and pre-Viking Anglo-Saxon times. They lack of details and most looks like this: "someone fought someone else at somewhere".

''B.C. 60. Gaius Julius the emperor ... he crushed the Britons in battle, and overcame them
A.D. 189. ... Severus came to the empire; and went with his army into Britain, and subdued in battle a great part of the island.
A.D. 455. ... Hengest and Horsa fought with Wurtgern the king on the spot that is called Aylesford. His brother Horsa being there slain, Hengest afterwards took to the kingdom with his son Esc.
A.D. 465. ... Hengest and Esc fought with the Welsh, nigh Wippedfleet; and there slew twelve leaders, all Welsh. On their side a thane was there slain, whose name was Wipped.
A.D. 473. ... Hengest and Esc fought with the Welsh, and took immense Booty. And the Welsh fled from the English like fire.
A.D. 485. ... Ella fought with the Welsh nigh Mecred's-Burnsted.
A.D. 495. This year came two leaders into Britain, Cerdic and Cynric his son, with five ships, at a place that is called Cerdic's-ore. And they fought with the Welsh the same day. Then he died, and his son Cynric succeeded to the government
A.D. 519. ... Cerdic and Cynric undertook the government of the West-Saxons; ... they fought with the Britons at a place now called Charford
A.D. 527. ... Cerdic and Cynric fought with the Britons in the place that is called Cerdic's-ley.
A.D. 556. ... Cynric and Ceawlin fought with the Britons at Beranbury.
A.D. 571. ... Cuthulf fought with the Britons at Bedford,
A.D. 577. ... Cuthwin and Ceawlin fought with the Britons, and slew three kings,
A.D. 584. ... Ceawlin and Cutha fought with the Britons on the spot that is called Fretherne. There Cutha was slain.
A.D. 628. ... Cynegils and Cwichelm fought with Penda at Cirencester
A.D. 652. ... Kenwal fought at Bradford by the Avon.

The interesting stuff from the previously mentioned era which contains some details making them more exciting.

These lines tell us about losses.
A.D. 457. ... Hengest and Esc fought with the Britons on the spot that is called Crayford, and there slew four thousand men.
A.D. 603. ... Aeden, king of the Scots, fought with the Dalreathians, and with Ethelfrith, king of the Northumbrians, at Theakstone; where he lost almost all his army.
A.D. 607. ... Ceolwulf fought with the South-Saxons. And Ethelfrith led his army to Chester; where he slew an innumerable host of the Welsh; ... There were also slain two hundred priests, who came thither to pray for the army of the Welsh. Their leader was called Brocmail, who with some fifty men escaped thence. (Oh I remember something similar from Bede here: >>12611)
A.D. 614. ... Cynegils and Cwichelm fought at Bampton, and slew two thousand and forty-six of the Welsh. ("2046" is a very specific number)

Some pursuit, not really relevant for our topic tho.
''A.D. 568. ... Ceawlin, and Cutha the brother of Ceawlin, fought with Ethelbert, and pursued him into Kent.
A.D. 658. ... Kenwal fought with the Welsh at Pen, and pursued them to the Parret.
A.D. 661. ... at Easter, Kenwal fought at Pontesbury; and Wulfere, the son of Penda, pursued him as far as Ashdown.''

This is more like it, still not very helpful with the lack of info. They also look too standardized to base any arguments on them.
''A.D. 514. This year came the West-Saxons into Britain, with three ships, at the place that is called Cerdic's-ore. And Stuff and Wihtgar fought with the Britons, and put them to flight.
A.D. 552. ... Cynric fought with the Britons on the spot that is called Sarum, and put them to flight.
A.D. 752. ... Cuthred, king of the West-Saxons, fought at Burford with Ethelbald, king of the Mercians, and put him to flight.''

After the restoration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire two great nation found each other, the Polish and the Brazilian. Unquestionable support of the True Faith and hot grills are just two of many values these countries share not to mention economic similarities between North Brazil and Eastern Poland. Don't forget to invest there, good people.
Top level diplomats on both sides recognized the necessity of unification of the two countries. However Divine Signs imply the time isn't here yet the process has to be postponed until the alignment of the Statues of Christ is right.

You know what soap opera this is from, right?
The whole premise of that show is cultural enrichment.
https://www1.wdr.de/daserste/lindenstrasse/folgen/2006/folge-islam-100.html
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindenstra%C3%9Fe

<Due to the frequency of social problem topics treated in the series, a high proportion of the characters come from minority groups of diverse kind or live in patchwork relationships. From the Greek Restaurant with its family and a Vietnamese which were there from the beginning, characters and whole families with migration background have come and gone from Italy, Turkey, Eastern Europe etc. The current cast counts three male homosexuals, two of them living in marriage with an adopted son, and one female homosexual with a test-tube baby. There's a homeless man, a man in a wheelchair, a child with Down syndrome and so on.
<Fans of the series have proclaimed in mild jest that a "normal" family wouldn't survive the Lindenstraße. As if to prove this, the model bavarian family Stadler which moved to the street in September 2008 has only one member, the contrarian Grandfather, remaining in the street as of early 2013. He "occupies" a room in a commune otherwise populated by twens. His son, the family father, fled the street after the family mother had a love-affair with his brother. The mother then broke up with the brother and started a new affair with a young immigrant from the Balkans who hid his visa-less family in an apartment in the same house. The younger family daughter, who became a teenage mother after a Lindenstraße resident of her age purposely broke a condom, fell in love with the same immigrant and left the street in shock after finding out that he preferred her mother over herself. The mother and the immigrant then left the street together. The older teenage daughter had more luck and married a widely liked Lindenstraße resident in Las Vegas with whom she started a successful business in the street, only to suddenly die from a food poisoning originating in the Greek restaurant in February 2013.

I except they start fighting with each other soon, maybe even tomorrow, while ISIS will occasionaly bomb a car or a tank on both sides.

ISIS in eastern Homs are getting gradually removed and hopefully soon they will be containet in the east.

There was something about Israel entering Lebanon air space and Syria reacting with anti air defence but sadly I lost link to proofs.

It looks like rebels launched a counterattack behind the main SAA force slogging toward the airfield. They might want to ambitiously cut them off or they try to divert attention and bait the government forces to commit more units on that part of the front which could delaying the airfield's occupation and slow the northward advancement. This would give some time to the rebels for evacuating their forces from the eastern pocket.
Too bad I dunno how units are deployed.

So in the west on the Khuwayn front the rebels has the upper hand for now and on the east side of the Abu ad Duhur salient ISIS became active attacking both government and rebel forces. SAA advances stopped it seems after they gulped a big green blob NE from the airport. They want to control that road coming from Aleppo and cut through the rebels along it. Might be the only usable supply and transportation route there.

Idk, from what I read of opinions, a lot of people like one album but not the others. They vary in style a bit, and several in last case (Kodama) he went just the opposite direction from what he has stated he wants to do with the last album (Shelter) and he doesn't care what fans think about it (many of them hated it).
But idk, so far I have liked all the albums. There's some songs that stand out a lot for me (Sur l'océan couleur de fer, Les Voyages de l'Âme, Éclosion), but even overall it's I'd say one of my fav bands.
Les Discrets has two dark shoegaze albums similar to Amesoeurs, and one dark synth album. I don't know what I think of the last album Prédateurs, it has really nice atmosphere but it simply doesn't feel like it has enough material for a whole album.
Peste Noire is a nationalist black metal band. I'd recommend to start with the self-titled album.

The other side of the story: what Madrid can do.
They should prove to the Catalan people that they do better within Spain than outside of it. Encourage people to have more personal and professional (work related) connections with other parts of Spain. Give opportunities to form these. Place greater emphasis on the similarities of the people of Spain, on the common historical background (preferably not on the Franco era), for this they might need some foreign scapegoats, a common enemy to unite against (this migration crap could be a good opportunity, just look how the dialogue changed between Northern Hungary and Hungary, too bad - for Spain - Spain won't play that card). This is hard walnut to crack as meanwhile all these they have to be understanding toward Catalans and their wish to be distinct from the other people of Spain.

How's the mood there, mi amigo? Would the Spanish people support an armed conflict, if we assume a worst case scenario?

I won't make a separate thread for this and it fits here what I wanna say.
So.
The question of the Székely's autonomy is always a headache for some Romanian politicians. Now here's this dude, the Romanian PM himself, and says (I'll try to give an exact translation) during an interview when asked about the topic:
>My answer is the same, when they tried to fly the flag on the occasion of I don't know what day. Back then I made it clear, if that flag is gonna be waved by the wind, the responsibles will be waved next to it.
So basically he threatened with execution (by hanging).
Now the Hungarian people both in Transylvania and in Small Hungary didn't take it nicely, not the media, not the parties (not even the left-liberals), and of course not the government. Now the tune of the Romanian leadership is this: the Székely autonomy is anti-constitutional as it is a danger to the unity of the country which is guaranteed by the constitution.
And this is where this topic is related to this thread: they try to play the Spanish-Catalonian card. They use the same reason what Spain used when declared the referendum illegal: the Catalan independence is anti-constitutional because it threatens the unity of Spain. And this is what shows the negative IQ-ness of these "people". Probably they don't even know what autonomy is: Catalonia is an autonomous part of Spain, autonomy isn't a threat to anything.
What can we do (beside talking)? We can veto their joining to Schengen. And maybe that's it.
It's nice that the Fidesz has to do something because all (most of) the Hungarians in Transylvania vote for them during the elections and they could lose them or worse: they can vote for someone else. Next parliamentary election is in April.

Here's the story in short:

I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it.
It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream.
Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.

Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.

I had the luck to eat some very good pickled mild chilis then bought another brand with other type of chili to test it out. It taste like paper with vinegar... Pfej

Peanut with or without salt?
By default I would choose salty, but without it it's a much more versatile food product. I could add into muh oats for example.

So the past week I utilized some leftovers for a dinner, some cooked rice and a chicken drumstick left from a meal which weren't entirely enough for one person. I also found a few weeks ago a can of kidney beans expired half year ago (the can seemed ok, both ends were deflated still) so I decided to combine the three into some kind of rice and beans.
I scraped the meat from the bone and tore/cut it into small chunks then added it into the rice and heated them up. I opened the can, the beans was in mint condition. The only thing was missed is the spices. I added some grill mix and also found a bag of cayenne pepper powder expired in 2014... we usually use Hungarian hot pepper or fresh hot paprika so it was continuously overlooked and finally forgotten, I don't even know which of my relatives could have bought it. So I opened the bag, tasted it and it was fine too.
The result was quite edible almost tasty. The meat didn't fit into the flavor for some reason.

I've never eat rice and beans before. Well it's not entirely true, some type of rice and beans are part of Hungarian cuisine. For example rice and peas (= rizibizi) is fairly common, sometimes other veggies (carrot, corn) go into it, or "layered green beans" is also a somewhat popular dish which contains rice, green beans and minced meat (with sour cream on top).

It's that tiem of the year again, Bernd. I'm not sure how the next two days will go, but I'll check back time to times, maybe even continue what I started when I'm not terribly busy... umm, so just as always.
I hope you'll get nice presents from Little Jesus, Bernd, or at least a bite of good food and some rest.

We associate Grandfather Frost with New Year more than Christmas, although it is one big holiday week so nobody cares.

There is two shitty photos I made at 7th when I was on walk in Moscow's center with a woman.

>Where did grandfather frost come from?

"Official" Ded Moroz now sits in Veliky Ustyug, but this is modern invention: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veliky_Ustyug

Technically Ded Moroz is created as answer to Santa in 19th century on basis of old pagan winter deity/spirit Moroz/Morozko, and he just lives "in the forest". He wasn't friendly or evil, and acted like typical chtonic spirit, but modern image is mostly Santa-like, with required attributes like bag of gifts and spruce tree.

People rarely care about it though. But most of NY/Christmas items now are about Santa, red hats everywhere (Ded Moroz has blue clothes and different hat), blue are rare. Although reindeer symbolics are rare, only in small gifts (Ded Moroz also has no reindeers) and no chimney with socks - gifts are placed strictly under tree (or just given to person directly of course). People don't care about it either, although purists notice this every year with rants about "Santaization" of NY.

We are americanized now. I blame Coca-Cola.

Intradesting, thanks.

In region where I live we also have non-santa Christmas time old fart who gives good kids presents (and charcoal to bad ones). He's called Gwiazdor (translated as Starman, Christmas is sometimes translated as Gwiazdka - "Little Star" so his name probably comes from that). I have actually no clue where his story comes from, maybe I'll stop being lazy later and check wikipedia and report about my findings.
Gwiazdor is unique to my region, other parts of Poland get other present bringers. I also remember he had a wife or some sort of female helper, not sure, also I don't remember her name.
Anyway we're also a victim of americanisation and red hats and fat red dwarfs are everywhere (although I'm not sure if Gwiazdor looked differently in original, probably not).
I'm glad feast of st. Nickolaus is on 6th december and you have excuse to expect presents twice in this month, even if Nicky brings more modest ones.

I think it was discussed back on 8 but our Father Winter concept is fairly new. Somewhere about the middle of the 19th century some poets used the term as an anthropomorphisation of winter, frost and snow. Then in the first half of the 20th was viewed as a person, then the communist regime pressured to use the name instead of St. Nick as some kind of an atheist Santa. I believe he doesn't have any old Hungarian roots and his figure was entirely loaned from Germans and Slavs. I should check folk tales but those are just way too many and I don't have access to enough collections.
