  1. This will endure as the quote of the series, like, "I drink, and I know things," from GoT.

  2. Except the actual quote is “I had a black mare once…”

  3. There are estimated 100,000-200,000 Zoroastrians around the world and their population is declining fast, they don't allow conversions to their faith and most of them don't even recognize children of mixed marriages. They are destined to mostly vanish, in a couple of decades to half a century.

  4. Only Indian Zoroastrians don’t allow conversion. The result of centuries of living in caste based society. As far as I know, Iranian Zoroastrianism is stable, and there is a recent Zoroastrian movement among Kurds in Iraq which has only just started to grow post-ISIS.

  5. But my lord! There IS no such army…

  6. The world’s too big, none of us will ever see it all. But if you’re a hiker or you don’t mind a nerve wracking mountain flight in a small plane - you should go to Nepal. It’s kind of out of the way, and it’ll take more time than may initially seem worthwhile, but you will never forget the power of a sunrise over the high Himalaya. Could be Everest itself, but any 8000+ meter massif will do the job. Other mountain ranges and other scenes of immense natural beauty still don’t quite compare, in my experience.

  7. The Maní was part of the Ottoman Empire. It’s a modern nationalist myth that it was never “occupied” by the Turks. The peninsula was awarded special privileges of autonomy but that wasn’t terribly uncommon in rugged parts of the Balkans. Maniots fought alongside the Turks against the Venetians as often as the other way around. They even resisted being incorporated into Greece until the 1870s.

  8. Mani was forced to pay 15 purses a year from 1769 that would last until 1770 (keep in mind a very small amount) when the ottomans were routed from mani so bad that "The Maniots had nowhere to bury so many corpses, so they threw them down wells. The plain later got the name 'Vromopigada,' which means 'Dirty Wells'."

  9. They were part of the Empire though… don’t know why you don’t include them. Beys appointment from Istanbul governed the Maní, and the peninsulas autonomy was officially sanctioned. That’s an official status within the empire, not outside of it.

  10. Literally no other country is as shitty as Egypt even when they have way worse dictatorships, poverty, lack of government care and education

  11. It’s the extremely high population and density. Been to India or Pakistan? Only other places that compare

  12. Nah I’ve been to China and nobody there was ever like that despite being canned like sardines in the metros

  13. Well Chinese tourists are pretty infamous for their bad behavior abroad. In China itself, maybe lack of ability to communicate with foreigners helps with the harassment

  14. I have 50 bucks can I get 2000 dollars please?

  15. I am not sure about the U.A.E but Oman definitely has wadis that flow all year around. You can even swim in the small dam reservoirs. I would personally call them rivers but I am not sure what defintion you used for this map.

  16. If they have to be dammed up to hold water all year, they’re not really naturally permanent. And though water may flow all year, in the dry season it’s not enough water to be considered a river. That’s my take anyway.

  17. THeRe iS No RAciSm iN EUrOPe, oNLy iN AmeRiKKka

  18. The way she phrased “your education level?” makes me think she may be from India/ South Asia, where this sort of education based stigma is extremely common unfortunately :(

  19. Not in the same way. Europeans began kind of “fetishizing” antiquities in the 18th-19th centuries and that’s what really kicked off large scale looting throughout the eastern Mediterranean. It is a colonial practice.

  20. They didn’t collect antiquities for the sake of collecting and displaying them. The Romans didn’t have museums or antiquariums in the way we do. Sure, wealthy individuals bought and traded works of Greek art, and Emperors moved huge obelisks from Egypt, but they did not plunder and trade antiquities in remotely the same way as happens today. Nor the Ottomans and definitely not the mongols. These people hoarded valuable objects as a store of moveable wealth, since they didn’t exactly have credit cards back then. The idea of historical artifacts being valuable because they are historical is a relatively recent European idea, and one deployed to support ideas of European exceptionalism and colonial ideology.

  21. Offshore registration, well thats always a good way for "The City" to get stuff done. Not going to go around to bush here. If its not incorporated on mainland, less likely it has a honest style to it.

  22. I understand what you mean, but offshore registration just means they want less interference. Usually that’s bad, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be.

  23. THEY ARE USING ONE OF THE BEST PAYING POSITIONS TO COVER UP THE FACT THE LARGEST CHUNK OF THEIR WORK FORCE MAKES $16 A HOUR.

  24. Exactly. You’ve got to put in years of brutal low paid work to land one of the $95k driver jobs. And even then internal politics determine who gets the cushy routes.

  25. Ok so while there’s always room for nuance, surely you’d agree that how well liked you are has an effect on how shitty of a route you find yourself on. I’m not a driver but I’ve worked during peak for years and I’ve heard it told like this in multiple centers.

  26. There have also been studies that shows this effect also occurs when done in VR. One day people living in large cities might need VR to maintain their mental health.

  27. Do you have a link to these studies? I have a hard time believing VR can even remotely approximate real nature.

  28. I'm currently writing up my PhD on this topic. Even the low-quality VR nature I was using (smartphone-based) was enough to invoke significant reductions in negative affective states in my participants.

  29. Really interesting stuff. Can’t say I support it though. I’m worried what our society will be like if too many start to substitute immersion in real nature with VR. Won’t that make it that much easier for us to ignore the destruction of what’s left of our planet?

  30. I mean using a Spanish name for a Swede is just about as ridiculous as using a Latin one, so why not?

  31. You don't need to be in humanities to have critical thinking skills? dafuq

  32. Says the guy who can’t spell or write coherent sentences

  33. Westerners in the 1st half of the 20th century: "A land without a people for a people without a land!"

  34. Europe after two millennia of brutal anti-semitism:

  35. It's one thing Islam has going for it, they're all expected to read the holy text in the original language it was written in. So it leaves little room for "what if it was the translator that snuck that bit about hating gay people in there?"

  36. Dude, the Bible was written in Greek. (New Testament)

  37. Is the site open ? What prevents people from taking those pottery shards, or destroying them by walking on them ?

  38. The vast majority of pottery sherds are effectively useless for archeology and there are billions of them. When I was on a dig we had an enormous pit where we would dump and re-bury 99% of the sherds we excavated. Only “diagnostic” pieces were kept, those which had some feature which allowed the type of ceramic to be identified.
