i cant say for sure because i wasnt even an itch in dads nuts in 79, but it wouldnt surprise me

keep in mind were talking about the country that spawned mondo films and during the 70s and 80s were pumping out some of the best trash cinema ever known

they were also trying and convicting the people who were making those mondo films

i dont think anything other than a temporarily revoked film license came from the cannibal holocaust stuff. the main controversy with that was the brutal violence, no one gave a poo poo about the nudity. they actually filed murder charges against the director until he wrangled up the actors to prove they were alive

porno holocaust is a better movie imho

Let's all remember when Italy arrested and prosecuted scientists just a few years back because they didn't predict an earthquake.

Actual history. It's a bit long but it's the story of a man with gently caress all prospects going into the British army, trying to avoid trouble at all costs and getting into some deep poo poo. It's also my father in law Bill, 92 this year.

the murder charges were dropped but they still got convicted on obscenity and animal cruelty charges (with a suspended sentence)

point is Catholics are nuts, ground zero for Catholics is batshit crazy..... you get both incredible artistic expression and amazing religious repression simultaneously

Warhammer 40k was basically created by a bunch of goon neckbeards who watched Dune and read 2000AD, basically everything Rogue Trader and 2nd Edition is a mashup of that + their fantasy line. Then 3rd Edition it was that, but now unironically.

The models are fun as gently caress to paint and the fluff is still fun, but holy gently caress if you're at the game store every weekend playing competitive games. My best friend and I just build what we want and play like twice a year when he visits his parents.

How about that time the Navy built a loving battleship in a NYC park? Complete with crew, quarters, and standard onboard duty schedule.

Steinhardt & Bros, the building in the background, was a company that bought up whiskey from distillers and mixed them into their own multitude of brands, including one Mountain Dew. They were out of business some time in 1918, so these photos are no later than that. That building is still there, but now houses a Petco.

I'm bored as poo poo so here's Olga/Helga of Kiev.

quote:

The following account is taken from the Primary Chronicle. Princess Olga was the wife of Igor of Kiev, who was killed by the Drevlians. At the time of her husband's death, their son Svyatoslav was three years old, making Olga the official ruler of Kievan Rus until he reached adulthood. The Drevlians wanted Olga to marry their Prince Mal, making him the ruler of Kievan Rus, but Olga was determined to remain in power and preserve it for her son.

The Drevlians sent twenty of their best men to persuade Olga to marry their Prince Mal and give up her rule of Kievan Rus. She had them buried alive. Then she sent word to Prince Mal that she accepted the proposal, but required their most distinguished men to accompany her on the journey in order for her people to accept the offer of marriage. The Drevlians sent their best men who governed their land. Upon their arrival, she offered them a warm welcome and an invitation to clean up after their long journey in a bathhouse. After they entered, she locked the doors and set fire to the building, burning them alive.

With the best and wisest men out of the way, she planned to destroy the remaining Drevlians. She invited them to a funeral feast so she could mourn over her husband's grave, where her servants waited on them. After the Drevlians were drunk, Olga's soldiers killed over 5,000 of them. She returned to Kiev and prepared an army to attack the survivors. The Drevlians begged for mercy and offered to pay for their freedom with honey and furs. She asked for three pigeons and three sparrows from each house, since she did not want to burden the villagers any further after the siege. They were happy to comply with such a reasonable request.

"Now Olga gave to each soldier in her army a pigeon or a sparrow, and ordered them to attach by thread to each pigeon and sparrow a piece of sulfur bound with small pieces of cloth. When night fell, Olga bade her soldiers release the pigeons and the sparrows. So the birds flew to their nests, the pigeons to the cotes, and the sparrows under the eaves. The dove-cotes, the coops, the porches, and the haymows were set on fire. There was not a house that was not consumed, and it was impossible to extinguish the flames, because all the houses caught on fire at once. The people fled from the city, and Olga ordered her soldiers to catch them. Thus she took the city and burned it, and captured the elders of the city. Some of the other captives she killed, while some she gave to others as slaves to her followers. The remnant she left to pay tribute."

It's even better that that. The Mongols just passed right on through, because lol if a slav had anything of value then

by the time the Mongols were that far west they were after riches much greater than other steppe people could provide

yea i guess the 75000 rus and their allies that died at kalka river didnt really fight the mongols, it was more of a massacre than a battle

or when batu khan came back 13 years later and sacked at least 14 rus cities and killed half a million people

nice little primer here, maybe you should take a look

also lmbo at the idea of mongols assimilating other cultures into their own rather than the other way around

the rus and mongols were actually pretty dissimilar as well
