    It’s a fun inside joke at the expense of some truly reprehensible human beings, that’s all. It’s not meant to be some kind of massive own that will swing the needle, politically.

    It’s a wink, nudge and smile for those who get it and gives us some sort respite

    help a fellow forumer meet their mental health care needs because USA healthcare sucks!

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better

    Started listening to the audiobook for “An Army at Dawn” which covers the North African campaign in WW2. Been interesting to far as it’s something I don’t know much about.

    It’s pretty hilarious hearing the people at the time complain that the American recruits, the “quote unquote greatest generation”, are a bunch of soft, unruly, leftists that could never make a proper army.

    It’s always a bit funny how cyclical so many aspects of history are, and what a constant the olds complaining about the indulgences of the youths are throughout all of history.

    The US Army in Africa did get taught some very tough lessons. Kinda crazy that some wanted to invade France in 1942. That would of ended badly.

    Terracotta Army-Ancient China-Real Faces-Part 1 5:52
    A first look into the world of ancient China, examining, recreating the soldier's faces in the Terracotta army, that was buried 2221 years ago to protect the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang in the afterlife. Done with digital painting and the help of several animation software.
    I was very intrigued by their very interesting Asian face features as I have never done something like it before. Surely, it was a very exciting experience!

    Pretty unique channel

    Point of order: there are at minimum 3 dynasties before the Qin so calling Qin Shi Huang "the first Emperor of China" is incorrect.

    Isn't it called China because of the Qin dynasty? Isn't that what that they're getting at?
