>Are you really that desperate? Argentina's future prospects aren't all that good but as it is your plan is much riskier than just living through its decline.
I'm not able to find jobs here, the economy has completely stagnated. Plus I need to move out of my house since in any time everything will implode from within.
I told my mother about my project and she ended up supporting me on going here. Gave me something akin to 1800 reais which should help to sustain myself in the first month. The only issue now is how to nationalize myself there.
I talked about Floripa since it has the most argies in there which would help give a hand in the beggining, perhaps even share room with them. But I don't plan living there, it's more of a stepping stone.

Actually, they didn't really conquer Armenia but they were mercenaries there. They ruled Thrace and parts of western Anatolia however, meaning that at one point, Aragon alone stretched three continents before the Americas were even "discovered".

>So Romans, yet again. In-fact, they were the ancestors of Augustus. Now you can trace that further, all the way to Troy and then to the Roman gods.

So basically it seems that the roman gods were demons that they were worshipping. I've been doing some reading and the pattern with greek mythology, egyptian and the roman is almost identical.

This is disturbing.

Rome I think was just the practical implement of greek philosophy and worldview. Almost feels like it was all rigged.

That's what the Catholic church was pushing for 1000 years. Roman gods were more likely real people who were deified and worshipped. The whole Saturn myth with Jupiter castrating him is identical to Noah.

She is just unsure. Work relationships are also risky.

It doesn't mean that she is interested in relationship but afraid, nor that she just want to be "work friend". I guess she don't really know what she wants. We often think that people have some hidden plan, but really they don't.

Typical situation that may or may not result in something. Pretty bad if you are emotional, because it involves waiting.

She's young, all over the place and doesn't sound too serious, methinks. Maybe try asking yourself what exactly you want in a relationship first. If she doesn't fit in to your life, you're better off with someone who does.

>Btw we work together

Unless you plan on leaving your job soon DO NOT GO FORWARD WITH THIS Read what >>34588 says. This is more than likely to end badly for you. Work and relationships are best if kept separate. Really risky for you if things go sour between the two of you True story: already happened to me with a buxom, French looking, grey mouse a few years ago. Shit ended horribly between the two of us. Been there, done that. Best idea is to not do it at all. I'm warning you bernd

Obviously, act on your instincts, but... only read if you are not a paranoid self-conscious type: I would say she's not interested. She fancied a quick bydlo bang but now she is trying to friend zone you because you were nice to her. She can keep you around with the promise that one day she might notice you but she has no interest in relationships, only banging.

>We often think that people have some hidden plan, but really they don't.
I think it only practical to never completely believe the words of a Jew or a woman, both lie as easily as you or I breathe. The only problem being, you will never know what was a lie or truth so your only choice is to act as if you trust them anyway. Best advice is to have as few of them in your life as you can.

I once knew of an arab (friend of a friend) who took three wives. He imagined three times the sex but it mentally scarred him having so many women. In the end he had to buy three houses, when one wife hurts his head too much he would go to the next house. The moral being, three women was three times the head trauma.

Reminds me. Being friends with a grill is highly misunderstood on the chans. Grills rarely fuck strangers just like that, they usually need a dating app, or some party with booze/drugs to do that. So in other circumstances, in the everyday life, they seek someone in their social circles whom they like for some reason, so being friend with them is one major way to get in their pants. Skirts. If one is seen by a grill as friend that bloke is thought to be a person whom that grill enjoys to be with. So a potential sex partner. But when a grill thinks as a friend of a dude, that dude shouldn't stay around waiting that maybe his turn comes next, that's the worst thing to do, either he has to make a move, or make friends with other grills (he should anyway) and make a move on another.

Virgin vs Chad Bernd 08/18/2020 (Tue) 18:40:51 [Preview] No. 39353 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It's far from kc specific meme, but I see it here and there and it bugs me that people are missing the point that these supposed to be ironic. These morons just call - both on image or just in written form in their comments - their preference Chad and the opposing side Virgin. Probably they can't even grasp the concept of irony.
>hurr it's funny because of name calling
The core of the joke comes from the swap between the obvious superior and inferior choices. This needs a healthy amount of self-irony, but worth it because in return it emphasizes the banality/absurdity/stupidity/etc of the inferior side by setting it up as if it were the better.
Instead of directly saying "that's stupid", "you are stupid", etc. it plays a jest which alleviates the harm that an insult would cause. I think it's a playful and lighthearted meme with still great potential I can't promise I could produce them on a BONG level, but an OC or two maybe I could squeeze out.
Note: there might be exceptions from the rule above, we'll see.

ITT post Virgin X vs Chad Y pics, requests, images that needs fixing, or your OC, Bernd. For the latter two preferably the captions to add and explanations as well.

Picrels: first two are templates, feel free to use them, last one my first attempt with this meme mayhaps will update it hence I insecurely named it v1.

Post interesting things about etymology

In Turkish the father-in-law or mother-in-law of one's child is called dünür which derives from tengri (like tenger, denger, dengir, tanrı etc) (spelled with nasal n)

krgyz and uygurs call tengri kuday (might be derived persian hüda), they also call co-in-laws kuday.

I always thought it was interesting.

Also the word thor or donar might be derived from tengri

Amerikáner is a hand-cranked drill, usually with a "transmission", some with two gears. Also called furdancs (from the verb fúr = bore/drill). From the -er one can easily tell Amerikáner is a word of German origin, and it means "American". After short consulting with German Wikipedia, I could not find this expression there, just Bohrkurbel or Brustleier.
What is so American about this machinery? I've no idea. Even electric drill is an invention of the (late) 19th century - and it comes from Australia. There must be something in the system how it works that compelled craftsmen to call it like that, lots of craftsmen here were German in origin I suspect it was in their slang.

Let's jump back to the river toponyms for a bit. Recently I dived into a book of Hóman Bálint, a historian who served as a Minister of Religion and Education for about nine years in the interwar and WWII era. This book offers a bit of addition to the various versions of the Don.
Dnieper = Dana-per = "rear river"
Dniester = Dana-ster = "first river" or "near river"

Maybe we could take a look at the Greek names
Don = Tanais - a Greekified form of its local name; Plutarch (or someone else using his name) called it Amazon river or Amazonian.
Dnieper = Borysthenes - the Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine says the name has local origin, and not Greek
Dniester = Tyras - also a Greekified name of Scythian origin, tura supposedly means "rapid"
Danube = Istros - in Latin: Ister; again local in origin, supposedly the Thracian word means "rapid" again.
Thracians also called the Dniester Istros/Ister, and its name is a combination of Don + Ister. I know this seemingly contradicts the first statement but these are just a bunch of speculations. It could be Ister also means "first" in Scythian. Or whatever.
These Greek names also identified cities as well, which laid about the mouth of those rivers.
Note: close to the city called Istria, there's a small river with the same name, flowing into the Lake Istria. Today a Romanian village lays nearby, called Istria.

Wrong thread.
The funniest-sounding city name I have found is Jijoca de Jericoacoara but sadly it has a straightforward Tupi composition: ji (frog) + oca (home) + yurucuá (turtle) + coara (nest). Judging from the "and" in the middle one might be a qualifier from the other. Or is it a frog home belonging/within the turtle's nest?

This is a completely mainstream Wikipedia article and I see no mention of any Spanish flu that led to the armistice being signed.

They stopped fighting.

It played a part in the wartime exhaustion. Just having the sniffles drops people's performance.
Also it is acknowledged superinfection killed most people not the flu itself. So were they victim of the flu, or the superinfection they suffered from? They had a compromised immune system to begin with, bad hygiene and malnourishment both in the trenches and back at home tired out people which allowed infection of all kinds. The flu itself was more aggressive tho, we know from the example from countries not at war, like Spain.
