2019 Summer Infinity Cup


The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:

Why did the Jews want some desert wasteland and not some place in Europe?

The Germans felt so guilty after the war and the western allies were on such a war path to punish the Germans that I'm sure they could have gotten a piece of Germany. Or at the very least they could have gotten the Soviets to give them a piece of Poland or Hungary or Czechoslovakia. They could have had a nice Switzerland/Luxembourg situation or a city state and they wouldn't have to deal with suicide bombings, rocket attacks, being surrounded by countries that want to wipe them off the map and facing constant calls for their destruction by Muslims/communists.

Instead they opted for a desert shithole in the least stable region in the world. And Zionist Jews are not even religious so the whole biblical/religious argument doesn't even hold up because it's irrelevant to them. Actual super religious/orthodox Jews hate the state of Israel and don't think it should exist.

Was the Principate really that great?

I made the realization today that the Augustus treated the loss of 3 legions or around 20k men as a huge thing that forever stopped rome expanding into germania.

And compare that to Cannae where the romans lost 80k men, continued to demand unconditional surrender from Carthage, and eventually won the war. In fact I heard they replaced all the legions they lost from Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae in a few days. And surely the middle republic had a far smaller manpower pool than the principate. How did it get that bad so quickly?

Anno Mundi

Kia Ora.

Just found out about this wonderful (((old))) dating system called "Anno Mundi". Literally: The Year of the World, as calculated by old testament records, given king lists etc. I cant figure out if it's exactly the same as the "Jewish year" or not as there appears to be some discrepancies, probably due to leap years.

So day 1 of genesis is AM0, the flood is AM1656, Exodus was AM2448 and jesus was AM3896

Apparently we are in the year 5779.

Pretty unreal that everyone was way more awful than we have been since 4123BC, since God hasn't water nuked us again since.

Russia used the calendar up to 1700AD and I think the Byzantines used it too but i'm not clear on that.

The imperative of progress, momentary fashion or human innate quality?

Throughout the vast majority of history, as a species we have simply existed like other animals. Eat, breed, survive. Norma. Then came religion and philosophy, which dictated how to live. It regulated social relations and explained the unexplained, but it was still about survival.

However, somewhere at the end of the Middle Ages a different approach to improvement began to emerge in Western Europe. Not to survive, but to improve, to check. Change for the sake of change, not necessarily. This new way of thinking developed slowly and exploded with all its might in the 19th century. Eccentric people, inventors, crazy people discovering something became "pop stars". Inventing and discovering became fashionable. This lasted until the middle of the 20th century and became commonplace.

In my opinion, inventiveness is not fashionable nowadays but only desirable to satisfy consumers, so in part we return to thinking from before this revolution only at a different level. We expect that there will be inventions, but the people who design them are not famous, and these are just another anonymous work that we do not worship but demand.

Admittedly, there are universities, pop culture productions promoting slogans: "all the time forward", "don't give up", "it's up to you", "you make your way", but how many people listen to them?

There is no longer such pressure on these slogans and I am afraid that we are entering another period of stagnation, so much so that at a higher level of development, which in turn is more difficult to maintain in the case of "misfortune".

What do you think about the present imperative of the progress that our civilization has made. Why was it possible to create it? What do you see its origins in? Is it really burning itself out or has it just changed its form? And if not, how far will we go with the fumes?

Or do you think that it is a feature of our species and we were condemned to technical development?

So I'm sure some of you are familiar with this screencap on Jesus's Sermon on the Mount.

One particular point is explaining the "going the extra mile" verse, based on an alledged old Roman law which would apparently allow soldiers to force the conquered natives to carry their backpack for one mile.

I have tried searching for sources on this alledged law, and I found out it was supposed to be called lex angeria. The problem is, the only websites discussing this subject (that I could find) were Christian blogs, and none of them provide any source for this law either, they just appear to parrot each other.

A list of Roman laws (like https://www.unrv.com/government/index-of-roman-laws.php) does not bring up anything either.

Worse than that, from what I can tell, it would appear angeria is not actually a real Latin word (it does not feature in any of the dictionaries I looked in).

Does anyone have a real source for this law, or more information on this? Did I just search wrong?

What If: Cnut Goes To Vinland

1016 A.D.

Cnut is defeated in his attempt to conquer England, he sits despondent and at a loss of what to do until one of his men mentions that he had been on an expedition with Lief Ericsson sixteen years earlier across the Atlantic to a vast new land populated with only a handful of savages and maybe Cnut could make a kingdom there.

Cnut seizes on the idea and packs up the remainder of his men (some 5000 Norse warriors and a handful of allied Poles and all their families, tools, seeds, animals, etc) and loads them on 150-odd longships and sets sail for Vinland.

Arriving at the Lance aux Meadows settlement at the northern tip of Newfoundland Island during the height of the Medieval Warm Period, Cnut quickly sets his men to building a secure camp and exploring the Canadian Maritimes region, up the St.Lawrence and down the N.American coastline.

Horror in the East

This was an incredibly frustrating documentary to sit through.

Listening to the British narrator and British people interviewed criticize the Japanese for the exact same shit the British did was incredibly frustrating and hypocritical.

The entire segment put in to show what a prosperous and wonderful place Hong Kong was just for being a British Colony, while lambasting the Japanese for attempting to colonize mainland China and in turn causing the deaths of millions of Chinese.

Without a single thought to the irony that the colony of Hong Kong was acquired 100 years prior by the British illegally trafficking Opium into China to induce an epidemic that also killed millions of Chinese, and the British government responding with war to the Chinese government destroying captured illegal Opium.

Not to mention the complaints of Japanese camps for civilians that weren't well equipped, for Christ's sake the fucking Second Boer war happened just 40 years prior and the British concentration camps used for the Boer women and children were as bad if not worse.

I'm not a hardcore Japanese nationalist, I thought the annexation of Taiwan and Korea was justified, however it almost always ended there for me, but this documentary made me borderline agree with IJA policy in the '30s.

Where I was supposed to feel sadness over the Japanese crimes in Hong Kong and to the British POWs in Singapore, it instead made me feel catharsis over the British frankly getting a taste of their own medicine, being treated as they had always treated others, all while they don't understand the irony of it all.

Fuck the fucking British.

The World's Fair

When I was younger I used to watch a lot of movies and animation from the '30s - '60s, and one constant throughout, whether it was Looney Tunes or something I caught on TCM, they'd always reference "The World's Fair" like it was the biggest fucking event in history, yet I'd never heard of it before.

For years I assumed they stopped sometime around the '70s, and only discovered a couple years ago what actually happened:

>International Exhibition as it was usually called starts in the mid 1800s

>It is literally a show where every country comes together and unveils their masterpiece of architecture/technology/whatever

>Event is officially called "World's Fair" literally 5 times, 3 of them in the 1980s

>Yet is informally referred to as such for the better part of 50 years

>Clearly the most memorable name

>Cucknada gets it for 1967 and decides to call it "Expo", which sounds faggy and nu-maleish as shit

>Focus gradually shifts from man's achievement to whatever the globohomo agenda advocates that year

>In either the '80s or '90s (part of me wants to say 1984), that year's "Expo" is a massive bust

>Event gets scaled down into nothingness, and persists to this day

>Nobody gives a shit about what was once The World's Fair anymore

Could we conceivably have a modern day World's Fair with huge structures and mindblowing innovations, somewhat like the Olympics but for human achievement? Or is it just not possible? I'd imagine the budget would be enormous and our ability to connect with one another effortlessly has basically nullified the entire purpose of the event.

Sup guys. So I've been pondering something recently and thought it would be an interesting topic.

Why are European/European descended people comparatively and historically so much less violent and brutal than other races of people? If you look at European wars, yes they were extremely bloody and violent but they usually did not involve mass slaughter of civilians (women and children) and mainly involved military deaths. Europeans never bayoneted babies, gassed civilians or tortured POWs either. POWs kept by the Germans in WW2 were treated very humanely as were POWs kept by the Americans. We never locked them in cages and poked them with bamboo or executed them.

Europeans also don't have a history of sex slavery/concubinage. European kings did not have huge harems like Asian (mainly Muslim) rulers did.

Nowadays it is much the same. You don't see Caucasian/white people sawing each other's heads off or strapping explosives to our bodies.

European countries are by far the most peaceful, safest and most advanced in the world and always have been. I'm curious as to why this is.

US Civil War

Lincoln shouldn't have violated habeas corpus and used it to indefinitely imprison journalists for wrongthink opinions. That was authoritarianism.

The Founders agreed in 1816 that the Federalist Party had a right to secede, and that it would go against American ideals to use to force to keep people under your boot from afar. Opposing secession was also authoritarianism by American standards.

But really, the South had a culture centralized around slavery, and they fired first. We'd be better off without them.

Who We Are and How We Got Here

Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past


David Reich is one of the lead geneticists participating in the Ancient Genomics revolution, which started in 2015 when a new way of sampling Ancient DNA - damaged, hard to work with - was invented, and the subsequent DNA analysis of all ancient human skeletons started.

This book has many aspects, and David Reich doesn't get everything 100% right (there are other geneticists who disagree with certain aspects of his conclusions of the data, and some of the data he uses to write this book is still too fresh and unreliable) and this book is basically divided into 2 parts:

>1. The Genetic History of Mankind (so far)

>2. A politically-correct apology and lots of "I'm sorry"

His social views are on the Left, so, although Part 1 dodges that, Part 2 is filled to the brink with that.

He's also a Jew.

So far, there were many reviews and things written about the book. I'll also post here these articles written by him, and some analysis of his book by Gregory Cochran.

Macedonia was a Greek kingdom for the reasons below.

Ancient Macedonian, the language of the ancient Macedonians, either a dialect of Ancient Greek or a separate Hellenic language, was spoken in the kingdom of Macedonia during the 1st millennium BC and belongs to the Indo-European language family.

The name Macedonia derives from the Greek Μακεδονία[1] a kingdom (later, region) named after the ancient Macedonians, who were the descendants of a Bronze-age Greek tribe.

Their name, Μακεδόνες (Makedónes), is cognate to the Ancient Greek adjective μακεδνός (makednós), meaning "tall, slim".[1]

Alexander III of Macedon (Greek: Αλέξανδρος Γ΄ ὁ Μακεδών; 20/21 July 356 BC – 10/11 June 323 BC), commonly known as Alexander the Great (Ancient Greek: Ἀλέξανδρος ὁ Μέγας, translit. Aléxandros ho Mégas), was a king (basileus) of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon[a] and a member of the Argead dynasty. He was born in Pella in 356 BC and succeeded his father Philip II to the throne at the age of 20.

Alexander's most immediate legacy was the introduction of Macedonian rule to huge new swathes of Asia. At the time of his death, Alexander's empire covered some 5,200,000 km2 (2,000,000 sq mi), and was the largest state of its time. Many of these areas remained in Macedonian hands or under Greek influence for the next 200–300 years. The successor states that emerged were, at least initially, dominant forces, and these 300 years are often referred to as the Hellenistic period.[2]

The name Ἀλέξανδρος derives from the Greek verb ἀλέξω (aléxō, lit. 'ward off, avert, defend')and ἀνδρ- (andr-), the stem of ἀνήρ (anḗr, lit. 'man'), and means "protector of men".[3]

Boer concentration camps

>The British denied pic related her rations because her father didn't surrender

Are the British even human beings?

How did America manage to stay neutral through all this? When the same Empire they fought for independence over was invading two free Republics to steal all their gold and diamonds and exterminating women and children in death camps?

I know we were in the Philippine-American war at the time and doing similar shit to the Pinoys, but they weren't a white Republic.

The only American I know who put a large effort into fighting for the Boers was John Young Fillmore Blake, and he was Irish-American so that was partly out of heritage. He was still a fucking badass, though.

Instead most Americans who participated were faggots like Frederick Russel Burnham being the antithesis of an American and fighting alongside the British to genocide free Republics.

Can we talk about how badly the Germans got fucked over after WW2? Regardless of how you feel about the Nazis I think that we can all agree that what happened to the Germans after WW2 is in itself an atrocity on par with the Holocaust.

Mass ethnic cleansing of Germans from all over Europe. This was especially bad in Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and elsewhere in eastern Europe. Random Germans with ancestors dating back hundreds of years in those countries were just rounded up and killed, raped, tortured, interned and displaced. These weren't Nazis at all. Just random people who happened to be German.

Worst mass rape in history. German women and girls (and I'm sure quite a few young boys as well) suffered the worst mass rape in human history at the hands of the Russians and their allies. Women were gang raped in front of he children who were often times murdered if they tried to interfere. They were raped with empty bottles, knives, broom handles etc. Some 2 million German women were raped, many ended up being killed or dying from their injuries. Here is a disturbing description of some of the violence they faced at the hands of the Russians https://einsamerkrieger.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/horrors-beyond-imagination/ (warning: VERY graphic)

Destruction of German cities. Major German cities were absolutely leveled and destroyed by allied bombings. The firebomnings of Dresden and other German cities were easily comparable to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in terms of devastation and loss of life.

East and west split. Germany was split in two between communism and democracy. This would last until the Berlin wall came down in 1990.

Mass starvation of German POWs in American run concentration camps. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheinwiesenlager

I would also add the current state of Germany today with mass immigration and leaders like Angela Merkel who actively hate their own country. It's a continuing symptom of the neutering of the German people and their post war humiliation.

Americans in the Japanese Army, 1874 Taiwan Expedition

I want to inform those who have not yet learned and remind those who have that two White Americans who were Union Army Veterans from the Civil War were promoted to Officers in the Imperial Japanese Navy in order to properly advise the Japanese on combating the Taiwanese Aborigines.

I also want to inform and remind that one of these two American Officers, Douglas Cassel, had been involved on the failed American Expedition to Taiwan three years prior in 1871, and that despite hiring foreign advisors the ex-samurai volunteers largely ignored all advice and blatantly disobeyed orders, and that Saigo utilized Cassel's plan for a main offensive but took credit for himself.

Update on Neanderthals

Big stuff here

It seems that previous models, which indicated a continuous decrease in Neanderthal admixture in Europeans due to natural selection against such variants, probably because they were harmful one way or another, is being contested.

Svante Pääbo, the very and only guy who works with Neanderthal genomes, is reviewing his findings.

He discovered that, by comparing Europeans to Sub-Saharan Africans to see how much Neanderthal ancestry Europeans got is now a failed method, as we now discovered that Eurasians with Neanderthal admixture had return into deep Africa, with people such as Taforalt's Iberomarussians in West Africa and as found in the Mota Cave in East Africa.

What does it mean?

It means that it wasn't Europeans losing Neanderthal admixture over time, but Sub Saharan Africans gaining it.

So, when you compare one to another, one would think that Europeans were losing Neanderthal ancestry.

Not the case anymore.

Today, the estimates of Neanderthal ancestry in Europeans has been calibrated to 1.5~2.5%, after initial overestimates of 4~5%.

But now we're in a situation where they will have to calibrate these percentages again, and we could jump back to 5% or even go as high as 10% Neanderthal. Actually, who knows, really, everything's on the table right now.

Anons help me with the Meiji restoration

So I made these bullet points to grasp the event. Is this the gist of it?

> Samurai of old battle the imperial court, defeat the Emperor and establish the first shogunate. The Emperor becomes a figurehead.

> After a century of battles between the Daimyo (warlords) for the title of the Shogun - "the Sengoku period" - Tokugawa Ieyasu restores peace and establishes the Tokugawa Shogunate.

> He decides to close the country from the white gaijin devils.

> Hundreds of years later, Matthew Perry comes with big battleships and demands to open the country for trade or face war and also be there for you.

> Shogunate decides to open the country and signs treaties with many different foreigners. Daimyo are displeased and split on the issue.

> "Shishi" - the southern samurai of Satsuma and Choshu regions are particularly unhappy, they see Japan as sacred ground and didn't like the treaties signed without the consent of the emperor (a figurehead). They ask to revere the emperor and expel the gaijin.

> The emperor agrees, orders to expel all the white pigu. But the shogun doesn't consent.

> Shishi then start to attack the gaijin themselves which results in gaijin ships bombarding their cities. They then try to take the imperial city of Kyoto but are defeated by Shinsengumi. Shogun suppresses Choshu.

> Shishi, in order to expel the gaijin, decide to first learn their ways - "Japanese spirit, western technology". After traveling abroad and arming themselves western style, they retake Choshu and drive the shogun away. Satsuma and Choshu form the Satcho alliance to dethrone the Shogun.

> The Shogun pusses out, steps down and decides to serve under the emperor as the head of council.

> The Satcho alliance is unsatisfied and forces the newly crowned boy emperor Meiji to declare the complete restoration of the emperor's rule and strip all titles and privileges from the Shogun.

> The Shogun is outraged, calls upon his Daimyo to retake the capital back.

> Boshin War. The Satcho alliance imperialists battle the Tokugawa Shogunate.

> Despite being outnumbered, imperialists are well modernized and are able to defeat the Shogunate. Centralized Japan is established.

As far as I know the neanderthals got a pretty advanced 'technology' for that time, but beside tard and obsidian knives, what other advantages did the neanderthals had? did they use tattoos or jewelry?

Another question is what kind of wildlife was in the iberian ice age. Did it had a mixture of african prehistoric animals and european prehistoric animals? in particular wooled rhinos or wooled mammoths. Also if neanderthals were still arround when the temperatures began to rise up.

I probably have many more questions, but those two are the ones I have in my head right now.

So during my idle time, I came to a tricky question. I was reading about anthropology and, usually when I want to know something, I first go to my everyday (((search engine))). So I can come up with some articles or even books, that would give me an idea, of what I'm trying to end up shoving into my head. Anyway, when taking a look at anthropology and its most recent developments, I noticed that most of its proponents, most notable scholars Like Émile Durkheim, Ernest Gellner and Eric Hobbsbawn(Age trilogy) all shared some particular (((heritage))).

Does anyone know if there are any other sources that do not suffer from this? That tries to bring this subject to light in any form?

I mean, wouldn't a field that focus on the social development of humans and its ramifications be a little bit biased when the most influential studies, in the last 150 years, are all comprised of people who share the same (((ethnic))), economic, religious and social background? I mean that all of them would write from the perspective of believing to be a persecuted, discriminated and an underprivileged minority?

Tell me about China

Evaluate the following statements:

a) Until the 18th century, China had the richest culture of the world

b) Until the 18th century, China made the most accomplishments in terms of science and technology

c) Until the 18th century, China had the longest and most formidable history of all nations/societies

d) Until the 18th century, China was the protagonist of mankind, the pinnacle of human civilization

This is not homework in anyway, it's just that I often have arguments with friends about China vs Europe. They claim that Europe has given the world more and better culture, achievements and societies, but I think that was China. Yes, there are endless civil wars, famines, and foreign conflicts China lost, but I think China has always been the most culturally prosperous and advanced nation/society/etc, until the 18th century. Since then, China has been looted and dominated by barbarians (Europeans). But just as barbarians invaded and looted Rome, it doesn't mean barbarians are better than China. In recent decades, China has been growing very rapidly and the west has been declining, so I believe it will soon return to its rightful place as humanity's shining beacon, ahead of everyone else.

Please educate me and share your opinions upon China and this matter as a whole.

Middle Kingdom Upper Egyptian mummy has North European DNA.



>On October 18, 2009, the American Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (MFA) opened an exhibition called The Secrets of Tomb 10A: Egypt 2000 BC. One of the most intriguing items in the collection was a mummified human head discovered over a century ago in the necropolis of Deir el-Bersha (also known as Dayr al-Barshā). The site is located on the east bank of the Nile River in close proximity to the city of Mallawi, approximately 250 km south of Cairo. Deir el-Bersha is known for tombs cut into cliffs of limestone that date back to the Old Kingdom (2686–2181 BC), the First Intermediate Period (about 2100–2040 BC) and the Middle Kingdom (MK; 2040–approx. 1640 BC). During the MK 11th and 12th Dynasties (2040–1783 BC), it served as the chief cemetery for the governors or regional lords (a.k.a. nomarchs) of the 15th Upper Egyptian Nome (a.k.a. the Hare Nome).

>The mtGenome profile independently obtained from the tooth by the FBI and HMS laboratories were identical and can be found in Table S2. The haplotype (deposited in GenBank under accession number MG736653) belongs to mitochondrial DNA lineage U5b2b5, but the specific sequence has not been previously reported in the 35,942 mtGenomes stored in the NCBI GenBank database (as of October 2017). The sequence closest to the mummy’s belongs to a contemporary individual from Lebanon (KT779192 [67]); however, the two haplotypes still differ at five positions, three of them in the control region (CR). A comparison between the mummy CR and the 26,127 CR sequences from the EMPOP database produced no match.

However, it is spread widely at lower levels throughout Europe. This distribution, and the age of the haplogroup, indicate individuals belonging to this clade were part of the initial expansion tracking the retreat of ice sheets from Europe around 10,000 years ago.
