It's that tiem of the year again, Bernd. I'm not sure how the next two days will go, but I'll check back time to times, maybe even continue what I started when I'm not terribly busy... umm, so just as always.
I hope you'll get nice presents from Little Jesus, Bernd, or at least a bite of good food and some rest.

We associate Grandfather Frost with New Year more than Christmas, although it is one big holiday week so nobody cares.

There is two shitty photos I made at 7th when I was on walk in Moscow's center with a woman.

"Official" Ded Moroz now sits in Veliky Ustyug, but this is modern invention: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veliky_Ustyug

Technically Ded Moroz is created as answer to Santa in 19th century on basis of old pagan winter deity/spirit Moroz/Morozko, and he just lives "in the forest". He wasn't friendly or evil, and acted like typical chtonic spirit, but modern image is mostly Santa-like, with required attributes like bag of gifts and spruce tree.

People rarely care about it though. But most of NY/Christmas items now are about Santa, red hats everywhere (Ded Moroz has blue clothes and different hat), blue are rare. Although reindeer symbolics are rare, only in small gifts (Ded Moroz also has no reindeers) and no chimney with socks - gifts are placed strictly under tree (or just given to person directly of course). People don't care about it either, although purists notice this every year with rants about "Santaization" of NY.

We are americanized now. I blame Coca-Cola.

Intradesting, thanks.

In region where I live we also have non-santa Christmas time old fart who gives good kids presents (and charcoal to bad ones). He's called Gwiazdor (translated as Starman, Christmas is sometimes translated as Gwiazdka - "Little Star" so his name probably comes from that). I have actually no clue where his story comes from, maybe I'll stop being lazy later and check wikipedia and report about my findings.
Gwiazdor is unique to my region, other parts of Poland get other present bringers. I also remember he had a wife or some sort of female helper, not sure, also I don't remember her name.
Anyway we're also a victim of americanisation and red hats and fat red dwarfs are everywhere (although I'm not sure if Gwiazdor looked differently in original, probably not).
I'm glad feast of st. Nickolaus is on 6th december and you have excuse to expect presents twice in this month, even if Nicky brings more modest ones.

Nice grill on the right.

I think it was discussed back on 8 but our Father Winter concept is fairly new. Somewhere about the middle of the 19th century some poets used the term as an anthropomorphisation of winter, frost and snow. Then in the first half of the 20th was viewed as a person, then the communist regime pressured to use the name instead of St. Nick as some kind of an atheist Santa. I believe he doesn't have any old Hungarian roots and his figure was entirely loaned from Germans and Slavs. I should check folk tales but those are just way too many and I don't have access to enough collections.

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 wish we had a Polish and a Brazilian poster who could check it out with a compass.
Jokes aside. The wiki pages don't have this piece of info surprisingly. I would think it's an important fact. Some bearings can be symbolical. It might be an urban legend but the equestrian statue of Jelacic in Zagreb pointed toward Budapest with his sword in the past but he was turned toward Belgrad during the Yugo Wars.
Aren't there any sites in native language about these statues' bearings? Or a downloadable document of the specifications?

It's all right. Those are just

incapable of attacking.

I thought Trump is a pawn planted by Putin. Maybe Putin wants to invade Ukraine and ordered his pawn to create him a casus belli.
Also maybe the Jews are manipulating Washington and Kiev to create a new conflict zone so Ukrainians have to leave their homes and migrate to west into Poland, Northern Hungary and Hungary. Then Russia expands onto the Ukraine and churkas will move onto the empty areas contributing to the Islamisation of Europe.

Can modern rifles shoot homemade paper cartridges if they're the right dimensions? I know "modern" shotguns can since early shotgun shells were paper cartridges until plastic ones become much more feasible. But can modern rifles shoot them? I know you have to "nitrate" the paper so you can avoid cook off. But do you need to add a metallic striker bottom to them?

Yes, just going to a local gun store or pawn shop is properly WAAAAAYYYYY fucking cheaper, I'm just bored and curious.

Those needle guns are fairly old constructions. Maybe you could change the pin of a modern rifle. Here are some pics of the cartridges.
You would have problems with the shape as well. It should be fairly similar and very exact size to fit snugly into the chamber.

I don't know nigga but I just wanted to say that I love rifles. There's something very attractive about that mix of wood and metal. I wished technology would stay at level where semi-auto is highest rate of fire avaiable so they can focus on developing only those beauties. I hope one day they relax gun law in poland so I can buy myself some of them. So far I only had chance to fire some medieval blackpowder weapons.

I'd say yes considering you can shoot blanks, then again it all depends on if you have the proper dimensions cut out and the material being used. It would likely shoot like a blank, but I wouldn't expect it to shoot too far. Really all depends what kind of rifle too.

I have a friend who shoots BB pellets from a regular AR rifle, and I've seen it work. You might just try that instead. Cardboard/paper/cheap plastic could really fuck up your gun.

>January 18, 2016

>TEHRAN – The world is abuzz with the lifting of sanctions on Iran after the latest nuclear deal it had struck with the west. Many states and leaders have offered congratulations and expressed optimism about a sanction-free Iran, however some have also expressed caution, while others see this as the worse development in modern history.

>The United States have expressed content about the current deal. President Barack Obama said: “Yeah I guess it’s ok, I mean we can always bring back sanctions if we feel like it,” and added that “making friends” with the Islamic Republic shows the United States’ consistency in its Middle East policy.

>“It’s another strong boost to our ‘WTHAWD?’ (What The Hell Are We Doing?) Middle East policy. After being hostile to Iran for over 30 years, backing Saddam against Iran, backing the proto-Taliban in Afghanistan against the Soviets, then bombing Saddam, then bombing the Taliban that we supported, then bombing Saddam again and deposing him, then supporting Israel in its threats to Iran, then backing Jundallah terrorists in east Iran, then fighting ISI(without the L) in Iraq between 2006 and 2010, then pulling out of Iraq, then backing Libyan rebels who then killed our ambassador, then denouncing Assad and backing the Syrian rebels, then not backing islamist Syrian rebels but backing Gulf monarchies that back islamist Syrian rebels instead, then wanting to bomb Assad, then not wanting to bomb him, then supporting moderate rebels, then those rebels themselves supporting or being overrun by Al-Qaeda, then supporting moderate rebels controlled by Al-Qaeda again anyway, then bombing Al-Qaeda in Syria (Al-Nusra), then returning to Iraq to bomb ISIL, then bombing ISIL in Syria, while completely ignoring ISIL expansion in Libya, then not bombing them in Iraq because we don’t want to directly help pro-Iranian Shia militias, then making a wide anti-ISIL alliance in which almost no one but us bombed ISIL, then supporting the Kurds and later the SDF in Syria, while still clinging to Turkey which supports Al-Qaeda and ISIL and attacks the SDF that we support, and ignoring ISIL where it threatens Assad (Palmyra), while also sometimes bombing ISIL where it threatens Assad (Deir ez-Zor), while at the same time supporting Israel which periodically bombs Assad, and in the end trying to make friends with Israel’s enemy Iran, which supports Assad, who is supported by Hezbollah, which is controlled by Iran and is hostile to Israel, while of course still calling Israel a key ally, we can indeed say that the ‘WTHAWD?’ policy has been a phenomenal success,” – President Obama said.

>Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu said that he had been crying non-stop for days, called the entire world antisemitist and said that lifting the sanctions on Iran is “worse than the Holocaust”.

>“All of the people in the west and east involved in this travesty of history are no different than Josef Mengele,” – Netanyahu said through tears. “Lifting sanctions against Iran is like operating on living Jewish babies, there is no difference! Soon these western countries that have betrayed us will even start complaining when we counterfeit their passports to covertly kill Iranian scientists and allies in Iran and other countries. Now thanks to these people Iran can make a nuclear bomb unopposed and this will spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East!”

>When Netanyahu was asked how is it that Israel’s own few hundred undeclared nuclear warheads have not sparked a nuclear arms race, he responded: “We have always said that we may or may not have nuclear weapons. Well, the lack of a previous nuclear arms race is obviously proof that we don’t have them! But we reserve the right to retaliate with nuclear weapons if we are attacked. This is of course not admitting that we do have them, because we may or may not have them, but we will definitely use them if we think that we need to!”

I wouldn't think so. Hungarian joke repositories have labels and a joke can have more then one but these labels are just

type of categories.
I'd assume English collections work the same. I dunno maybe German sites.
