    TIL that average height in Europe is still lower today than it was in pre-Neolithic times. https://ourworldindata.org/human-height#mesolithic-times-middle-ages-subsistence-societies-and-modern-foragers

    https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/influence-of-mongolian.2588910/ Apparently the Russian words денги (money) and лошадь (horse) are Mongol loanwords.

    Ornithology Updates

    Hummingbirds are total goddamn bastards. So, due to the drought here in Colorado, my dad has set out some hummingbird feeders on the front and back porch. The hummingbirds, wasps, and chipmunks flock to it, because there is nothing else in like 12 miles for them to get delicious, delicious sugar from. Now, there are two kinds of hummingbirds in the area: rufous hummingbirds and broad-tailed hummingbirds. Rufouses have orange coloring and a flourescent red/orange throat and broad-tails are bright green with red throats. Both are attracted to the feeder, but there is one key difference: RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS ARE COMPLETE ASSHOLES. There are two rufouses and about a dozen broad-tails that gather at the feeders, and whenever a broad-tail goes to the feeder, the rufous (one of them stays at each feeder) comes and chases his ass away. If there are two, he chases both away. if there are six broad-tailed hummingbirds, the rufous will chase every single one of them off one after another, stopping only to eat for himself. I have seen this occur at least once at each feeder. I knew rufous hummingbirds were more aggressive, but jesus... This is why the Aztec war god Huitzilopotchli's name means "hummingbird of the south". This is why the rufous hummingbird is my new avatar.

    Fencing Thread

    Oh, fencing. Used for so many hundreds of years to resolve quarrels, disputes, and arguments. There are so many writers talking about so many styles of so many schools with so many swords, it's hard to pick a favorite. My favorite, personally, is German longsword fencing, so much power and finesse is required.
  13. Comrade Dogski is greatest Soviet agent!
  15. Trump has such great voodoo magic that he can randomly tweet out his campaign slogan and get 124,000 likes.

    TIL that Douglas MacArthur was a descendant of Commodore Matthew Perry. I couldn't think of a clever joke about an gene that makes one an enemy of the Japanese.

    Reviews of Movies I Haven't Seen

    Fanney Khan Fanney Khan is a pretty simple action/drama movie. A young Mongolian/American woman with an interest in history discovers as a result of the intervention of an old, wise mentor character that she is the last living descendant of the Genghisid dynasty. She travels to the Kashmir region, and settles the India/Pakistan dispute by declaring the Kashmirid Khanate as an independent state. The locals are fully supportive of our protagonist, as they are allowed to live in peace under an iron-fisted, but fair Khatun. When world leaders (all obligatorily portrayed as evil, old men) discover this, they conspire to destroy the brutal authoritarian state utopia that exists in Kashmir. The Khanate then invades the extremely aggravated nation of Pakistan, and succeeds against all odds as a result of Fabian tactics. The population is subjected to normal nomads-invading-settled-people assimilation tactics, slaughtering the men and absorbing the women and children, you know, normal stuff. After executing the high-ranking government officials, the new conquest is stabilized. They proceed by annihilating the Taliban and conquering Afghanistan, again, with much brutality. The Knanate's next move is to invade Iran, and with support from the Kurds and other Iranian heretics and persecuted minorities, they succeed in a dramatic scene that concludes the siege of Tehran. This move alienates Russia, who condemn the Khanate, but the brutal and fast conquest of Iran attracts the attention of the Saudis, who decide to send considerable amounts of money in support. Our heroine then invades Iraq and Syria, clearing those countries out quickly with her experienced and loyal army, aided by the allegiance of the Kurds whose independence she guaranteed in an autonomous Kurdistan province. By invading Assad-controlled Syria, our hubris-ridden hero officially poked the bear, and Putin declares war. The two armies meet on the battlefield of Idlib province, strangely accompanied by the two heads of state. It is then revealed that Fanny Khan and Putin secretly agreed to engage in single combat to resolve the war. The movie ends in a climactic Dune-esque scene where our protagonist kills her opponent, and is then declared Khan of Khans and finally brings peace to the Middle East by destroying the Sykes-Picot borders of her imperial provinces and sensibly re-arranging them. And the whole time, Trump watched all of it on his giant evil White House surveillance screen.

    This song is a perfect analogy for the election of Donald Trump.
