Such a regal shade

Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.

Congrats pop, you earned it

Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.

When you follow your heart, love is the answer

  1. Most won't but if you ever get a chance, check out Annie Jacobsen's Operation Paperclip, that woman is a history nerds dream. She writes 300+ page books of investigative journalism and history, with 100+ page reference sections, fucking incredible work she does

  2. I don't think history nerds hate other history nerds, shit, this is one of the few places we can congregate and feel at home. If you're a douche who knows a lot, you're still a douche. If you're arrogant or say controversial shit without evidence, it makes you look extra dumb. Kinda really just depends on the people, fucking 5 million at this point, who knows what you're gonna get

  3. Given his size, Gronk would also be the perfect template for Peter the Great

  4. Totally agree. Hell, even years after the Progressive Era, FDR still got his medical cocaine, where the hell is ours?

  5. Don't forget jokes about Hitler getting kicked from art school or the bombing of Japan in WWII

  6. Luckily they banned the former not long ago. "Those who know, Those who don't know" needs to be banned as a template IMO, it's so lazy but gets click-bait traction half the time

  7. How about banning less things and just letting people get bored? Have we learned nothing from history?

  8. This sub would be incredibly boring if the hot page was the same five jokes every single day. People still repost like crazy, but forcing people to try and be original or getting rid of spam karma posts isn't the same thing as censorship or book burning

  9. Operation Snow White was a criminal conspiracy by the Church of Scientology during the 1970s to purge unfavorable records about Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. This project included a series of infiltrations into and thefts from 136 government agencies, foreign embassies and consulates, as well as private organizations critical of Scientology, carried out by Church members in more than 30 countries. It was one of the largest infiltrations of the United States government in history, with up to 5,000 covert agents. This operation also exposed the Scientology plot "Operation Freakout", because Operation Snow White was the case that initiated the U.S. government's investigation of the Church.

  10. A cult started by a sci-fi writer a few decades ago that is surprisingly powerful politically

  11. In 1899 there was very little market for oil. Cars were extremely rare and there was little commerce in oil compared to now.

  12. In 2013 there was zero market for Dogecoin. He bought up kerosene as well. Gladwell's Outliers makes an interesting argument about a lot of these Titans of Industry in the 19th century being motivated businessmen, but lucky in terms of when they were born and the massive opportunity their context provided them

  13. Marat was in his bathtub on 13 July, when a young woman from Caen, Charlotte Corday, appeared at his flat, claiming to have vital information on the activities of the escaped Girondins (Marat’s political rivals at the time who he had crushed) who had fled to Normandy. Marat asked for her to enter and gave her an audience by his bath, over which a board had been laid to serve as a writing desk. Their interview lasted around fifteen minutes…Corday rose from her chair, drawing out from her corset a five-inch kitchen knife, which she had bought earlier that day, and brought it down into Marat's chest.. close to the heart. The massive bleeding was fatal within seconds.

  14. Varsity athletes don't eat that, it's too full of fat and nitrates

  15. I find it funny how most defendants of Eugene Deb's speech quote very little from it, and try to make it out that where he says "If war is right, let it be declared by the people – you, who have your lives to lose." is why he was arrested. In reality what got him arrested;

  16. He paraphrased Marx at points. It's political speech. He never says how he expects this to get done or what he wants people to do nor* does he call for them to attack anyone or anything in particular, he's stating how he thinks the world should be. It's fiery, sure, but political speech is the most protected form* of speech there is for a reason

  17. Nothing wrong with that. I didn't provide his speech verbatim. Respect the humility if anything tbh

  18. I learned something and you used a dank template with the most legendary golfer in history hanging out with Tiger Woods? Good shit OP
