I find pre-columbian native history fascinating, the most interesting thing to me is the parallels between old world and new world history. Seeing as how they're completely separated by a massive ocean and had (most likely) no contact, it's really a great study in how humans deal.

Today I'm going to talk about the origins of the Inca and the similarities between it and Rome.

And yes OP I do have maps for you.
Here's one with the whole of north Asia divided into Russian, Independent, and Chinesian Tartary from early on in Russia's eastward expansion.

And here's one from a few centuries later that shows how the concept evolved as they got more knowledge of the area and the Russians expanded. It now shows a defined region of thinly populated steppe and mountain border countries that served as the buffer between China and growing British Indian and Russian interests from the north and south.

The flag is a lot closer to the Khanate of Kazan, a remnant of the subdivided post-Golden Horde time of nomadic empires. The tartar empire was possibly a thing as the cultural environment was hostile to feudalistic consolidation of resources. Its also difficult to exactly recreate what the size or scope of the kingdom or empire was due to the fact that nationalism wasn't a thing back then, and cultural norms were also way different. Thus they wouldn't have thought of themselves as Mongols, and certainly not Turkish or Chinese either, making for none of those powers to defend them in their time of need. Russia noticed this and took full advantage of it by waging several expansionist wars against the Tartars, eventually exterminating their political independence and making them subject to Russian Imperial vassalage, with the exception of those who fled east to China or south to the Ottoman empire. This exodus of sorts is how you get a distorted view on what the geographical size or makeup of this historical kingdom or empire was.

Has anyone watched Oliver Stones "untold history of the united states"? I really enjoyed watching it. It's pretty dry history series but I think a lot of the /pol/tards on the internet should watch it as it really breaks down the whole illusion of right and left and shows how the USA is not at all what they've been told.

IIRC, Neanderthals possessed a much better memory than Homo Sapiens, due to a large brain (specifically in the area that governs memory). What this meant in practice is that a neanderthal would never have to navigate their route by the stars or by trail markers; they just knew the exact way they had come. Homo sapiens, by contrast possess a much greater capability for creativity, which allowed us to be more innovative.

For instance, a neanderthal would be able to remember the exact placement of food stocks or firewood after a heavy snowfall, without having to dig around for them. A homo sapien would be able to create things to prevent useful items from being buried by snow.

Neanderthals used fire, tools, and had cultural burial practices, but little art.

No one ever talks about how Homo Erectus was faster and stronger than modern humans and were the dominant species of mankind for a couple of million years. We coexisted with them and they could have crushed us, had they been smarter.

based on where they found it, in a site with neanderthal bones or with tools and other material goods that we associate with neanderthal sites, and vice versa

like you'd expect there's a lot of debate over it, there are more than a few controversial supposed neanderthal works of art that aren't generally accepted as either neanderthal or art by most experts

So lately I've been Indiana Jonesin, looking up lost treasures to be found.

For instance, near me in Illinois, USA, there's supposedly gold hidden in a place called the Sweetin Mansion.

Guy built a mansion around the time of the American Civil War. When the war broke out, he didn't trust banks to hold his earnings, and so hid his stash somewhere on his property. Later on he broke his neck horseback riding and his stash was never recovered.

Folklore says his stash is in a cave guarded by ghosts and rattlesnakes.

I'm thinkin about checking it out.

What treasure legends are around you?

Here in Arizona we have a large mountain range that separates the inhabited phoenix metropolitan area from uninhabited desert wilderness called the Superstition mountains. Legend has it a dutch miner found a huge vein of gold and hid his stash somewhere in the mountain range. I have heard different versions of the story but usually people say he told his sons where it was on their deathbed, but they could never find it, or that he died before telling them the directions, or whatever. I've hiked around there a few times but never found any treasure. People been lookin for years though for the lost dutchman's treasure.

I'm from a town on the Illinois side of St. Louis. There is small party of archaeologists that believe the tomb of Alexander the Great resides in a cave system in Marion County, Illinois. A collector named Harry Hubbard had acquired artifacts that were looted from the site and has put his reputation at risk for getting this idea into circulation. I think it is pretty outlandish, but the concept and the research they did is still worth looking in to. The radio interview with Hubbard is pretty interesting and has all the deets.

Why do US retards think that the US won WWII single handedly? I drive uber and had some army guys in my car the other day and they were SHOCKED, MORTIFIED that I suggested that the USSR was both the superior fighting force and were the ones who defeated Nazi Germany (if any one force can be thanked it is indeed the Red Army).

I think its really important that Americans be told that their military is actually shit and they havent contributed a single fucking significant thing to the good of humanity in military terms besides an ASSIST in WWII. The rest of the entire military history of the US is predatory imperialist meandering around the globe and has been a net loss for humanity.

ITT we discuss good ways to teach americans that their military is evil and they are stupid to support it

>but I would counter that by simply saying the the allies (the US in particular) had in four years gone from operating in North America and parts of the pacific to operationing on a truely global scale
And now they have to go from that, which was already a tremendous undertaking, to a deep interior plain where mud, sleet, snow, and hail become factors far more than France or Germany. The Pacific theater was islands. It could be resupplied easily by navy. The European Basin is not so easily resupplied. This is the exact same problem the Wehrmacht ran into during Barbarossa and Stalingrad. Air supply has its limits, even if you have air superiority. The Stalingrad airlift was an unabashed failure. Train lines can be sabotaged, and most were during the Eastern Front as it stood. This leaves trucks as your main supply vehicle of choice, and they have significant drawbacks in a war scenario. They are caught in mud. They break down. They can't carry as much per load, and they are subject to enemy sabotage. America has it better than Germany did due to the sheer quantity of their trucks, but pushing beyond East Germany is an eexponentially greater task that is hindered by the four years of war already fought across Eastern Europe. America's supply lines are also longer than Germany's supply lines are, by many factors of degree already as things stood at the end of WW2. America has mighty logistics, but even America's mighty logistics have a limit, and that limit was where they stopped in history.

The most likely scenario is a costly stalemate that leaves both sides of the Curtain far more bitter than they were in history, potentially leading to a hotter Cold War and even limited early nuclear exchanges.

No, black people basically got their shit kicked in by everyone who ever happened across them. Whites, Arabs, Asians, and Jews all totally dominated blacks all throughout history. Nowadays, as whites are leaving Africa in droves, the Chinese are going to show blacks what real oppression looks like. Unfortunately for black people, the R word doesn't work on the Chinese communist.
