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

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

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

yeah, i mean its not like the golden horde ruled most of modern day russia, belorussia and ukraine for almost 300 years. oh wait...

VikingSkull posted:

well, they never really fought the Mongols

steppe peoples fighting steppe peoples surely happened, but Mongols and the contemporary Russians were very similar at that point, so the Mongols just assimilated them

:catstare:

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

Didn't native Americans use to set huge Forrest fires in the areas that would become the great planes?

as in the mongols got their kill on so good it had an actual measurable effect on the carbon levels. they slaughtered so many people and depopulated so much cultivated land that was then reclaimed by nature, that they were responsible for removing 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere

Does anyone know where historiography has settled on Italy in WW2?

Depending on the decade of publication I've seen everything from: "They were hopelessly incompetent" to "Lions led by Donkeys" to "Brave but poorly equipped" to "They were betrayed by the Germans strategic blunders" to "Finest fighting force of the war, man to man".

all i know is they had the most adorable tanks

quote:

Archaeologists have made a sinister discovery at the top of a Greek mountain which might corroborate one of the darkest legends of antiquity.

Excavations this summer on Mount Lykaion, once worshipped as the birthplace of the god Zeus, uncovered the 3,000-year-old skeleton of a teenager amid a mound of ashes built up over a millennium from sacrificed animals.

Greece's Culture Ministry said Wednesday that the skeleton, probably of an adolescent boy, was found in the heart of the 30-meter (100-foot) broad ash altar, next to a man-made stone platform.

Excavators say it's too early to speculate on the nature of the teenager's death but the discovery is remarkable because the remote Mount Lykaion was for centuries associated with the most nefarious of Greek cults: Ancient writers including Plato linked it with human sacrifice to Zeus, a practice which has very rarely been confirmed by archaeologists anywhere in the Greek world and never on mainland Greece.

According to legend, a boy was sacrificed with the animals and all the meat was cooked and eaten together. Whoever ate the human part would become a wolf for nine years.

If he were carved up I wouldn't expect the skeleton to be lying there looking pretty much intact. Curious if their examination turns up cuts on the bones that don't show up in the picture. Seems strange they wouldn't go for the marrow too, but maybe that wasn't so popular by then.

maybe they boiled him then his meat just slid off the bone :yum:

Yeah, that usually involves dismemberment, which is why a complete skeleton properly arranged is weird.

maybe they cooked him in a human sized trough like the thing they found him in. i mean, when youre the sanctioned religion you can get away with some weird poo poo my dude
