    Widukind's defeat

    Lately I've been thinking a lot about the impact of Widukind's defeat (785 A.D.) at the hands of Charlemagne, especially in regards to Scandinavia.

    Newspaper Boy in The Old Days

    I noticed that the newspaper seller always mentions "Extra, extra", but I never catch anything after that. How did they used to appeal their newspaper to the passerby? Also, were news about royals' activities (such as engagement, divorce, etc) allowed to be printed in them?

    How would you respond to these ignorant claims about African history and bad culture?

    So some moron recently told me this on Trump's shithole comments, his reason why he thinks they are shitholes is due to culture: "The truth is, neither is a positive thing to say, but I think what Trump was getting at is that these countries are unstable and have some bad cultural aspects but...

    Did Hong Kong become a culturally confused society?

    While Hong Kong became economically wealthy as a British colony, the effects to the culture of the society seem to have been altered from China's culture, but not necessarily to the point of becoming western. Today, we see student protests over having to pass tests in Mandarin, but their English...
