This x100, I know a lot of fags know him because of Clontarf but his life is honestly one of the most overlooked stories in my opinion. Absolute madness, spent his entire life removing norsefags, united Ireland, started reforming and then fucking died in one of the biggest and most important battles of Irish history.
Boru was pretty badass, shame what happened to the O'Briens after though. Red Hugh O'Donnell best life-story for sure.

Founder effect
The yamnaya were not the ones who started corded ware. They were r1b-l23 and colonized the Balkans anatolia and central Asia.

The r1a and celto-germanic r1b clade indo euros were in the wooded areas and colonized the steppe after the Yamnaya abandoned
it's real simple, Yamna weren't the only PIE
another steppe group that got folded into PIE is the source of R1a in CWC
>CWC is R1a
chris chan?
Yamnaya R1b destroyed various local Uralic hunter-gatherer tribes. A few of the R1b men became elites after conquering a few primitive Uralic R1a tribes, and then the Uralic Corded Ware were slowly being acculturated to be Indo-European.

Yeah they basically got kicked out because China had demands from them that they did not want to uphold. I never said they specifically got banned. All I said what that they had no access to google services because google doesn't operate there.
>And Google, Facebook etc.
Do you just mean in general or just China? Because China doesn't have Facebook or Twitter, to name a couple.

In 1735 Manchu bannerman A-er-xi murdered his wife in Ningguta suspecting she had an affair with his nephew Cha-na-bu so he killed his wife and nephew with a knife.

In 1736 Han Chinese Bordered Blue bannerman Sun Hei-zi killed his wife Wan with a kitchen knife after suspecting she had an affair with his younger brother and because she insulted him and his parents and disliked him for being poor and ill.

In 1736 Han Chinese bannerman Zhang Yang-cheng saw his wife and younger brother making eyes at each other while sitting on a kang and suspected they had an affair. When he went to sleep he woke up to see his wife sittinfmg on a kang smoking and she said she went outside to urinate and he suspected she had sex with his brother so he killed both of them with a kitchen knife.

Manchu bannerman Rui-bao injured his widowed sister in law Zhai with a kitchen knife after he suspected she had an affair with a distant Manchu relative, An-zi who moved into their house. Zhai was previously married to Rui-bao's elder brother Kui-lin. Zhai and An-zi were chatting and laughing by the door and that was enough to make Rui-bao think they had an affair. Zhai's mother was called to court to testify and said it was normal for Zhai and An-zi to make small chat and they didn't have an affair.

In 1773 the Bordered Yellow Banner Manchu Chi-ba-er and his wife killed their 19 year old daughter by strangling her to death for having pre marital sex when she stayed away from the house overnight. The coroner confirmed she lost her virginity so Chi-ba-er and his wife were aquitted and not punished, being excused as committing a crime of passion by losing their temper in an honor killing.

Manchu women resented these Han Confucian influenced new controls on their sex lives and personal lives and wanted to continue their old Manchu ways.
based han anti-thot patrol
The slits were made in the abdomen and the testicles squeezed out there.

Manchu Empress Longyu (born 1868) was 8 years older than her Han Chinese eunuch lover Zhang Lande (born 1876). He became a eunuch at 15 and was quickly promoted to a harem eunuch. Longyu let him do anything he wanted after she became empress dowager. He pilfered state coffers for funds, insulted dukes of the imperial family, took 4 wives and a mansion and Empress Longyu always sided with him.

The Qing did not apply castration to Han bannermen or Han bondservant (baoyi) bannermen or Han banner slaves in the banners. Han Banner slave Chen De attempted to assassinate the Jiaqing Emperor in revenge for being fired from his job. His two teenage sons were hung to death instead of being castrated. Chen Luer, 15 and Chen Duier, 13. Disgruntled Han bannermen helped the Eight Trigrams White Lotus attack on the Forbidden City and their sons were not castrated.

However all non-banner commoner Han Chinese boys who were sons of rebels and mass murderers who were caught were instantly delivered to the Imperial Household Department for castration at their licensed clinics and palace service. Sometimes if the number was over 100 the Qing had the Han Chinese boys delivered to Beijing in batches of 16-40 at a time. The Qing warned the authorities sending them not to let a single boy escape because they wanted as many Han Chinese eunuch boys in the imperial palaces as possible.
Some eunuchs were already married and had children when they were castrated in their late teens and twenties but the mortality rate was higher for older people.

Han Chinese boys over 15 some of whom had wives and children were also castrated if they were sons of rebels and mass murderers, the law also applied to grandsons meaning their sons. The difference is that Han Chinese boys under 15 were sent to the Qing palaces but boys over 15 were banished into exile at Ningguta in Heilongjiang and Urumqi and Ili in Xinjiang where they were given as slaves to Evenki Solon families in the Eight Banners. The reason was that involuntary eunuchs older than 15 especially sons of rebels were difficult to control while sons of rebels under 15 who were castrated were easy to brainwash.

Voluntary Han Chinese eunuchs older than 15 were accepted into the palace in the later half of the Qing.

The introduction of the law on castrating sons and grandsons of rebels and mass murderers coincided with the finishing of the renovations on the Summer Palace, the Yuanmingyuan. The Qing wanted to furnish and decorate the renovated Summer Palace with Han Chinese boy eunuchs for aesthetic purposes and had a major rebellion with hundreds of boys captured and mass murder incidents recently so the law was passed. Hundreds of Han Chinese boys got castrated immediately.

What's the ultimate architectural pleb filter and why is it Brutalism?
111 replies and 35 images omitted. Click here to view.
When my university built a new campus in the 60s and 70s it was all brutalist buildings. Now thankfully the newer buildings have things like windows and wide hallways.

The old buildings feel like fucking prisons. The hallways are too narrow and the classrooms have little to no natural light.

Brutalist buildings look like they're built to demoralize the people inside
I don't know, anon, there are some pretty aesthetic examples.
And it looks better when you add greenery.
Barbican (>>6479875) is especially comfy when you consider that it was built as pleb housing. I mean, houses for the masses have never looked /comfy/ in any period of history, and most brutalist boxes don't either. But Barbican actually tried, and you can't say that cities wouldn't look better if the ProleHoles of giant glass dildos were replaced with other such examples of Brutalism.

The big problem with it for me isn't that looks evil, it just looks... unfinished. Like the architect was showing off with the shapes they could turn into standing structures, and then ran out of money before they could add the final elements that'd make it look like a building.
Add in some Gothic touches, or Art Deco/Nouveau; put some hanging gardens in the plan to give it that babylon aesthetic.
And most importantly, don't spend all your budget trying to test the limits of a standing structure.
Brutalism is unassuming, functional, autistic, based and the ultimate style to rattle up both the bourgeois and the hippie. It rings so well with me
Brutalism looks good if there is significant vegetation present
Nice appeal to pathos

The battle, if you read, was to get France to stop attacking American shipping. France agreed (at least on paper) to stop and hostilities ended. England was asked to stop its council in orders and England refused which led to the war between the 2.
Zzz it was the representation meme when it suited them, they liked it most because it sounded noble never mind that it was non-sensical were one to spend even five seconds thinking about it. It was raised once during the stamp act (repealed in less than a year) and once again almost eleven years later with the tea act. Neither of these were direct taxes (in the case of the tea act it would've lowered the cost of tea for most colonists), they were more akin to sales charges that many non-citizens pay in modern countries for goods today. By magical coincidence all the men involved in protesting these "taxes" were phenomenally wealthy (even by the standards of the time) and many like John Hancock were smugglers who stood to profit from jipping their own people out of cheaper local competition. Isn't history pat!
Ah right, yes, it was just France attacking American shipping with no provocation was it?
>Basing alliances of of ideology instead of what benefits your country most
