It's not like someone will invest time into persuading you that what you're saying is a gross simplification if not downright distortion of facts.

Re: Asian politics

Keep in mind that you discuss this matter with someone from a country with strict caste systems. A society that allows for a 5% chance to succeed with an individual endeavour, e.g. social ascendancy, is obviously better for an individual than a society that rules out this opportunity. The idea of &q...

Re: Asian politics

Some Chinese regional governments are marking those who complains of them as "covid positive". Those "covid positive" can't enter any shop, hotel, bus, and may be send to hospitals by force at any time. It's just like how the empire hunts the Jedi, and it's even more ridiculous....

Re: LaMDA Google Chatbot, Sentient?

One thing that's scary about this is imagine someone using this technology to create say a Twitter bot farm to influence political discourse. As AIs become good enough at emulating humans which they now seem to have become, no one will know the difference anymore. Where exactly do you see the probl...

Re: European politics

In Germany, e-cars have a market share of roughly 12-15% among newly bought cars (~30% increase compared to last year). Overall its much less and e-cars make up maybe around 2% of all cars in Germany.

Oromo are great actually but just like cuirs early on they can hardly justify their price. After the card and with a bit of mass it's easily one of the best cav in the game. I'd use them in melee pretty much always.
Which card do you refer to? The 20%dmg/10% RR one?

Re: Ideas on Ethiopia

I'm curious about hearing anything positive about Oromo Warriors. To me, they are one of the worst units in the game. They are as expensive (both res/pop wise!) as a cuir but perform worse in the most important melee cav statistic: hp. They have a range of 12 but their ranged rate of fire scales bet...

Re: European politics

Wait, where is my fucked economy? Germany is at full employment as well as the rest of the former HRE. And the other EU members don't give me the impression of having fucked economies. Even Greece halfed its (brutally high) unemployment rate over the last decade.

Re: Can Germany 13/10

Of course Germany can, technically. But I think see two problems with this. On the one hand, German eco will be worse than its French counterpart due to CdB's pop efficiency. 12 CdBs are worth 15 normal villagers. Germany starts with 6 pop already and can only build another 3 villagers before sendin...

Re: European politics

We should recognize that we don't really know what the majority of Russians think because people in Russia could as well be afraid to publicly announce a non-conforming opinion, e.g. due to telephone lines being systematically screened by security services. The large number of young Russians who fle...

This isn't question of who committed war crimes, you committed far too many for that matter, it is about reality of what happened.
I'm fairly sure that I didn't commit a single war crime. Didn't read the rest, because I expect it to be the usual PoC trash.

What we know as "the allies" today wasn't forged deliberately. It was just the combination of countries that happened to be declared war upon by Germany/Italy/Japan. Germany didn't declare war on UK, or France. You are now going a step further and revising the already revisionist western ...

Expecting a victory based on Putin's illness/death is coward's manner. The whole Russian civilization is activated by the desire of expanding territory now, and only a TOTAL failure can cool them down.

Your country is an invention by colonizers, Ukraine is not. It's understandable that you have difficulties to grasp the differences. Still your use of blatant propaganda ("lands which belonged to Russia") is a poor showing.

Re: Chinese Newspeak

Developments like these are not very promising. The ruling elites might very well either dig their own graves in this way or make the country become another North Korea soon.

Anyway, I hope you and your family stay safe for the potentially turbulent times ahead.

Re: Ukraine Invaded By Russia

1) Lithuanians pay taxes, 2) Lithuanians view Russia as the single threat to the defense of their own country and 3) Ukraine is currently being attacked by Russia.

1) + 2) + 3) = taxpayers pool their money for their own defense
