There's only one way to find out.

There's a contradiction in what you wrote. First you explicitly say it's hard to fight several person but in the following lines are implying it's actually not that hard as they can be beaten with threats and some pain. This is basically the same what I wrote, the crowd consisting of average children got beaten by someone with actual knowledge and experience (but with bad chinky grasshopper technique).
>You talk like you have a clue when you clearly don't.
This is a very bad way to start a serious discussion. The one who was accused by something like this has two options: 1. acknowledge he doesn't know anything and defeating himself with admitted incompetency; 2. make a counter statement that he truly knows stuff but then proofs can be demanded from him which he can't present (noone will expose himself on imageboards, also what proofs he could present?!) resulting with his discredition. In short this is an ad hominem argument and as such I'll just ignore it.

There are several other stuffs to write I'll go through it the way these come to my mind. First let's talk about hitting/punching strength.
Yes it is based on muscle mass and the contracting-stretching ability of the muscles and tendons and whatnot but every "martial art" instructor will tell you that it is not enough to hit with only your arm, if you want to throw a real punch you need to start your punches from your body, which means a certain turning movement of the body as your fist moves forward. This movement will guarantee that not just the muscles on your arm will be behind your hit but the muscles of the chest, back, and the core muscles. Some "martial art" instructor will tell you that you have to start your punches from your leg, heel, foot which is also kinda true as thigh muscles give energy into the turning also you need a solid base to execute the move.
Now if you watch both vids...
this: >>9605
and this: >>9628
then you can observe that both the man and the kid hits mostly with their arms. In case of the man it's harder to judge thanks to the angle of the camera and it seems he leans back, also he's fast so not the easiest to follow. Nevertheless most of the kids punches (with the exception of his jabs and the last few punches from about 0:18) aren't proper hooks but swings started from his shoulder and moved by his arm muscles and it seems the man's punches are somewhere between these swings and proper hooks. The real difference is that the man has the muscles to get away with it. Of course he has less distraction to be precise and sit his hits on the chin of his adversaries (and he has the skill to do it ofc). (On the view of Nth times of the vid, his last punches on the third dude are kinda half-assed).
The situation with the kids is clearly not a spontanious conflict or a mugging. From their uniformized wear we can safely assume they know each other, they may learn at the same school, they are siblings or go to the same chess club. They might be instructed by the same kung-fu master (but in this case the five are extremely green beginners). Who knows. So they know each other and the five know the skill of the lone.
So the fight betweem them is not a spontaneous it's not evolved from angry exchange of words on a random pattern but it's a prearranged one. It's clear from their initial starting position and how they are advancing together into the fight. Maybe they had a disagreement and made arrengements to resolve things but even then they would stand less orderly, maybe they had a bet they can/can't beat him, maybe it's some kind of a showcase because the whole thing looks like someone said hajime. Too bad we cannot see their facial expression due to quality, also too bad we don't have longer vid with the pre- and post-fight habbenings. They all stay in the near none of them runs away, even the little one in the back on the left stayed, even after he got a kick in his face in the end. Sumbission but no fleeing. It was important to stay there for some reason so it was probably clear: after the fight no more enmity.
Interesting how they not try to wrestle him. It seems two of them are somewhat bigger than him they have weight advantage they could just hug him and force him to spend his energy on wriggling. Also they didn't try to catch his leg which would send him on the ground with those jumping kicks he does he would be trapped. I can imagine they forgot this but the holding him down was ruled out previously by an agreemen or custom.
Erm I forgot where I wanted to go with this.

from your contry or wherever

the arbitral tribunal finally announced rulings regarding border disputes between slovenia and croatia. however, croatia claims they will ignore those rulings because they don't see them as legitimate ever since a year ago when some phone calls between one of the members of the tribunal and some irrelevant slovenian official were leaked. however the arbitration was accepted as part of ultimatum to croatia regarding eu membership.


besides the sea border dispute, most land border disputes were results of anomalies where one republic or a municipality governed land that was nominally on the other side of the republic border.

see pictures in article. it was ruled out that:
1) gulf of piran belongs to slovenia (except for a narrow strip next to croatian coast, as opposed to border going along the centreline) and the sea border continues straight out to italian waters; slovenia doesn't get a direct contact with international waters but instead a 4.6km wide corridor is assigned inside croatian waters that slovenia gets full access to
2) land border follows the dragoña river; this means that a couple of houses (most notably, joško joras, who wrote "here is slovenia too" on his house in 2002 and had some publicised breakouts with border officials) and fields, altogether 113ha that were part of slovene municipalities and were infrastructurally connected to slovenia, stay on croatian side
3) 70ha of forest on snežnik plateau forests that were part of hungary before ww1 but was anomalously reassigned to slovenia during treaty of rapallo for no reason whatsoever, remain part of slovenia
4) 335ha large piece of clay around village of drage (northern bela krajina, foothills of gorjanci), mostly forests, that was anomalously part of croatian cadadstres goes to croatia. this is right next to the worst example of bordergore on slovene border, however the ruling does nothing to resolve that. such cases.
5) the army objects on trdina peak (in gorjanci) that were seized by slovene forces during independence war get split following the internal republic borders along the ridge within yugoslavia; the radio tower is therefore on slovenian side while the barracks on croatian
6) the border along mura river follows its old riverbet from the 19th century and not the modern-day regulated course (leaving a larger part of land on croatian side)

croatia is expected to send army on its borders and slovenia is expected to go crazy on border control to prevent tourists from reaching croatia until croatia gives a statement regarding agreeing with the outcome

I wrote in the vidya thread about how I found Anno 1602 on PC mag's CD and that gave me an idea. I tried to look for my few CD's acquired the same way but I couldn't find mine however I found others I got some buddy of mine once. Actually he gave me a roll of 50 CD's, these are partly PC mag's appendices, partly pirated material, partly other stuff, like GNU/Linux distributions or Nero disks.
I found for example Baldur's Gate II pirated from somewhere also an original factory made Shadows of Amn expansion disk beside it. Pirated NHL 2002 but original Alone in the Dark 3. Nice. I went through all of these once long ago, I can see my scribbled notes on the CD's what works what not, but never took the time to use any of these. I'm not intend to. At least not now.

Right now the more interesting stuff is on the PC mag CDs. I'm gonna review one here with you, Bernd.
If you'd like please post your findings if you own such CD's or DVD's. I'm sure Bernd has some secretly in the corned of his basement.

So this is Chaos Ultra 23/24 running in Dosbox.
It has mouse, music, and bookmarks. It even has a range of charsets and theme music (with shut up function luckily, on the long run it gets tiring) which are easily accessible from any article. Btw the music was created or stolen by one of the editors of the Chaos Ultra mag.
The text of the main menu always has some kind of theme or at least they name the same options differently (still it's recognizable what's what). For example: in CU23 the words get -us suffix so they sound Latinish or in CU24 the last option (Exit) got the name of "Now you can turn off your computer" (which probably I don't have to explain).

Every issue has a shorter-longer Introduction, and a credit. Generally has a short stories/novels section (all of them their or the readers' works sent by mail, some fanfiction), a resident DnD (well ADnD at that time) column, other rpg columns under several different options in the menu (WH40K, BattleTech, ShaRun, Rifts, Call of Cthulu, etc, etc... and of course M.A.G.U.S. the most popular Hungarian rpg, some LARP). There's always some adventure or at least adventure ideas for less imaginative DMs. Or for those who run out of ideas. Stuff (NPCs, items, spells etc.) for games. Humour and untranslatable (usually lame) wordplays everywhere. Reviews of books, films, music, rpg systems, and rpg contests. Reader's letters, questions and answers. Interviews. Meta stuffs. Also every page has line counter for reasons.
No reason to make more screenshots, just texts in Hungarian.

August 20, Birthday of Hungary Bernd 08/20/2017 (Sun) 08:45:44 [Preview] No. 9639 [Reply]
It's the 1017th birthday of the Christian Hungary, a national holiday. Last year I made a thread for the commemoration, today I'll keep it shorter but still.
Why August 20? Our first Christian king, Saint Stephen (reigned 1000-1038) was canonized this day in 1083 by Saint Ladislaus (reigned 1077-1095). This day was chosen as a representation of statehood as we aren't sure about the precise date of the coronation of Stephen.
Customary celebrations of the statehood are held all over the country, and in Budapest the Holy Right (a relic, mummified right hand of Saint Stephen) is carried around during a precession. Of course our leading politicians give speeches, usually some nonsense.

Jobb literally means right (as oppositon of left). Szent can mean saint and holy both in this case probably the holy is the correct translation. So it's Holy Right.
For example:
Szent István = Saint Stephen
Szent Korona = Holy Crown (of Hungary)
Szent Jobb = Holy Right
Holy Hand might be a better translation I dunno.
The hand isn't rotting, its mummified and kept in such micro-climate which prevents further degrading of the organic material.

I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it.
It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream.
Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.

Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.

I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

>infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years
I'm not so sure about accurancy of rifles in 1700-until breach loading became popular in military.

Hm I'm seeing a few flaws in that experiment. To kill one soldier sometimes you need just one hit. Meanwhile in one salvo one soldier (that on front line) could get multiple hits, dying but also serving as a shield for those behind him. Also ball could have gone between soldiers landing somewhere where it have done little harm, while on a 100 metres long target it would show a hit. Line infatry didn't neccesarily stand in super tight arm to arm formations, right? Also also you will get different results while doing a prepared experiment in calm conditions then in real battle when bullets fly everywhere, people around you are dying violenty, gunpowder is gettin wet, your weapon is failing, officers are nowhere to be seen and you just shat in your pants.
So I'm not totally convinced about those number differences.

I'm a bit late to discussion and I haven't read entire thread yet so please forgive if it was already adressed.

Bernd 08/10/2017 (Thu) 11:05:10 [Preview] No. 9514 del
Another problems I see there.
1) Black powder weapons fail sometimes (as any weapon tbh). And when they do it takes fuckload of time to make it werk again. Often it would mean weapon is out of this fight. Maybe breech-loaded rifle could be cleaned more easily, but for muzzle-loaded gun it's a huge broblem.
2) When in formation where everyone is shooting, there's a lot of smoke and light and noise, you could sometimes not notice that your rifle didn't fire and load it again after pulling the trigger.
3) It seems there was much more discipline in firing in those times. No fire at will whenever you think it's ok, everyone is loading at the same rate, firing is done according to officer instructions, so no firing as fast as possible and no grabbing weapons from the dead.

Bernd 08/13/2017 (Sun) 09:00:07 [Preview] No. 9552 del
While all points are valid they aren't contributing so much to explain the difference.
On the other hand I left out such facts as in practice the opposing forces many times fired at each other from much closer distance then 70 m (sometimes they fired shots after shots from a literal few steps inside a room without any result - only hoping the other will forced into submission with superior posturing).
Or while I took under consideration of artillery fire contributing the sum of losses in my calculation if I remember right I downplayed it's effectiveness (maybe to third instead of half), moreover I did not calculated the role of grenadiers who were the most effective troops of the infantry. These soldiers weren't equipped with just rifle/musket but with grenades which was so successful weapon that eventually all infantry troops were equipped with that (rendering "grenadier" to a simple title used to elite troops). We can't calculate how much percentage of the total casualties were caused by grenades but we know this was the preferred killing method of infantry during WW I and II (a WW II battalion used up about 500 grenades on a good fighting day). Why? Because it's easier to lob an iron knob (or and iron knob on a stick) into the vicinity of the enemy and waiting for fate to run it's course then actually target a fellow man, pull the trigger then watch him fall.
Also don't forget that the times of line infantry while the grenadiers lobbed grenades at the enemy lines the other troops stood and fired on the enemy... from grenade throwing range which is somewhere between 20 and 30 m.
All in all with rifles infantry killed much less then what I calculated.

Also you're not late I'm going to continue I'm just more interested in the content of the CD right now.

Let's see your TOP 3 open source community driven games.

I personally love games involving strategy:

Warzone 2100: https://www.wz2100.net/
Great tech tree with a balance on power, research and production with a tech tree you will never complete.

OpenRA: http://www.openra.net/
Now with near complete Tiberium Sun support and RA2 soon.

Unvanquished: https://www.unvanquished.net/
An advanced FPS with a strong emphasis on team play and tactics.

Yeah, last update in February. And yeah, it looks like Anno. I might give it a try.

The gameplay is straightforward, once you know what to do just rinse and repeat.

I remember, my first character reached old age, turned into necromancy to prolong his life because my son was a retard and wouldn't carry the business and shortly after that moment I lost interest.

Also I'd like to say that I tried Dark Messiah and it's really fun game. Story is meh, characters are meh, but the gameplay is great. Fighting feels a bit like Skyrim except it's much better done here, also it's not open world rpg but action game, so levels are this corridor type like Call of Duty. So I guess you could say it's a mix of those both games.
There are various tools how to destroy your enemies, and without using environment like randomly placed spikes fights can be really tough. Of course the best, most fun and most overpowered is the kick, hence sometimes game is called "Orc kicking simulator". Use it as much as you can.
I really recommend this game for Bernd.

I think you might mistake Anno with The Guild.

I kinda remember playing with Dark Messiah somewhere but I just can't touch that memory. It's liek a presque vu feeling.
