How difference is the standard of beauty in ancient time compare to modern time?

I live in a time when the germ theory is accepted. I wash the razor, and often apply antiseptic when I get cut. Also, have you looked at the kind of razors that were used 100 years ago?
Oh yeah, and I have hot running water to wash the razor with.
They're a turkmen dynasty
No, modern persian is called farsi in persian as well. What the turk mocks is precisely this: the fact that some words have lost their p sound. He and others using this are probably trying to imply that the sound disappeared completely, which is false.

What I want to know is: why the Egypt fixation?

African Americans of slave descent come from the Atlantic coast of the African continent. Sure there weren't big time empires like those along the Mediterranean sea in that region, but there were plenty of respectable mid-tier civilizations with distinct languages, religious traditions, political systems, arts and architecture etc. Some of the sculptures in city-states located in what is now modern day Nigeria were unarguably more lifelike than that made in western Europe during the same period (see pic related).

So why not focus the "kangz" narrative on Mali, Ghana, the Yoruba nations, etc.? You have West African kingdoms right there. You don't have to appropriate Egypt.

I was watching this chink movie set before the inauguration of Empress Wu (689 AD) and they have a Roman general visiting. Did such a thing actually happen? I can't find anything about it, but seems like something really random to make up as he's not a relevant character.

Humanities coming through..

What if, with the technology we have, we could give everyone an oculus rift through which they can experience the world how they like? Example: a feminist might programme every politician to be a woman, and a neo-Nazi might turn their president/prime minister into Hitler. All problems regarding the formation of society would instantly be eliminated.

1000 words with actual content, anon, not just writting crap. I mean citing authors to give substance to your argument, that kind of stuff. Just the time you take to pick 3 different authors, find their works, and read them you already blew 3h (assuming you gathered articles, not books) of the 1 you had.

>It isn't, by definition.

Why ? Just because they're not on wage?


Time/energy management, of course. Why would they spent 10h a day doing labor to get home, do chores and spare maybe 10h to study and get rest? With our sanitized 8h it's hard enough, let alone 10h on inhuman conditions.
>Being an economist isn't really a 'proper job'
An economist can be an academic research economist publishing papers to the major journals with their findings... like any other academic. How exactly is being a researcher not a "proper job"? Most economists work in industry, and can be found working in almost every industry. They can work for multi-nationals, government, utility companies, oil, the big-4 accounting firms, or banks, central or private etc etc.

Malthus, and J.S. Mill both worked for the East India Company as economists, Ricardo was a businessman, investor, and stockbroker. Keynes worked in the civil service and made millions in the stock market. He was first in India working as an economist and bureaucrat, and then worked closely with the government in the civil service.
I don't get this meme.
He wrote stuff on political science, how is that not working?

I'm pretty much a Great War noob, but I have heard that the war was contentious throughout, and that while things didn't look good for Germany during most of the war, they were competitive through the first part of 1918. So much so that US forces were afraid of a large-scale German offensive in 1918 and were planning on a major offensive themselves in Spring 1919. How did things collapse so much for the Germans? The fact that their allies fell apart and/or internal problems?

Did you forget the fact trenches only really became relatively static after Germany lost the Marne? The Battle of The Frontiers was fought in the woods quite often
I'm also forgetting these elite ambush troops, so please refresh my memory on that
>implying Afrocentrist bullshit isn't like 1/4 of /his/ at various times
Elite British ambushing units seems borne from that anons mind but the BEF (whilst numerically insignificant) was highly professional and trained, and capable of checking otherwise undefended advances by the Germans, thereby being part of the reason why the French were able to stop the Germans at the Marne, which obviously prevented the Schlieffen plan from working. Which basically marked the end for the Germans, now that I think about it.

People have different tastes anon. Like your mom's pussy tastes pretty good to everybody but you.
I wasn't defending the Soviets, just trying to point out that their country was a pile of crap that Khrushchev covered up with his bluffing rhetoric which the American government took very seriously.
He was the leader of a big country that had lots of enemies. A big part of his job was saying cheesy, inspirational, and overly-optimistic things to motivate the people. There are lots of American politicians projecting wishful thinking about the US being the greatest country in the world and similar memes. It's nothing new.
