Person who lives in Europe here.
Whenever something happens in the US and becomes trendy, whether it's a political event, a fashion trend or whatever, the youth in Europe immediately copy and paste it to Europe. And now recently with the protests about racism in the US. Europe has problems on its own, there are countries at Europe's doorstep (Syria, Libya, etc.) where there are active genocides, femicides, massacres and so on, yet people never go out and protest or bat an eye, at least not at the right direction. They will protest and say refugees welcome but they will not protest the governments in Europe who fuel wars and destabilize these countries which lead to genocides, they will not criticise the support for criminal fundementalist governments like Saudi Arabia either. Or in Iran people who are hомоsехual are executed and are being persecuted, in some North African countries females go through female circumcision, etc. yet our Facebook partisans never go out and protest these t... keep reading on reddit ➡
People in other countries don't realize just how enormous the USA is. There are so many different people and places that its ignorant to lump them together. The population of just California would make it the 9th largest European country. It's like something happening in France and saying all Europeans believe or act this one way or Europe as a whole sucks.
I would love to get a thread started everyone talking about their experiences in their favourite city in Europe and their least favourite city. I will start...
My least favourite city I have been to in Europe has got to be podgorica in montenegro! (sorry) found it pretty soulless to be honest.
My favourite I have two (cheating) hear my out.
Sarajevo. Was only in Sarajevo for one day and stayed overnight and it was awesome. Really charming city and full of soul as well.sarajevo was alot bigger than I thought it would be and the city centre has a really nice modern area.
Budapest. Me and my partner went to Budapest in February for a week and we really loved the city. Great people we met there.enjoyed learning the basics of the language too!! (hard!!) beautiful architecture and the city pretty big as well. Plenty to do!!
Places we plan to visit and have interest in ( Kiev, Moscow, Belgrade, Minsk, St Petersburg.)
Cant wait to hear all your replies 🤞👍 (edit)

Hello, I have this impression that as the armour technology grew, swords werent that useful on the battlefield, I think that soldiers and knights carried axes, maces, clubs, polearms, pikes + daggers etc. to battle much more often than they would do swords. Im not talking about some special situations or units but a general idea
I dont have to explain this because this is a common knowledge that a spiked weapon (or a blunt force) is better in dealing with an armored opponent.
So a simple 1-handed sword might be better as a self-defense weapon or a status symbol of wealth and power also used for dueling.
But there were times where we see units with short swords a lot because they often clashed in shield walls and needed a short precise weapon to stab enemy people in huge crowds of battling soldiers.
And armour for general infrantry wasn't as developed as in medieval times, it often covered few of the most endangered areas but had a lot gaps that could slashed so I think it was

Currently in an argument with a British redditor who claims up to 50% of women in certain European countries are topless when sunbathing (beach, pool, lake, etc) in public.
I don't think it's that high, and put my number at less than 10%.
What's your opinion/experience?
Back when I was in high school, basically everyone had iphones. It was really only the techky kids who were more interested in specs that had androids. The exception was the international kids (mostly from Germany, Italy and Spain). A good chunk of them had android phones (maybe like 50%). And I don't think that it was really because of price because most of these kids came from pretty well off families as it costs like 30k to do an exchange.
But digging into the numbers (source), it seems like it seems to be the case that android is more popular in Europe than NA. NA is about 55% to 45%, whereas Europe is about 70 to 30. Sure there are some countries that aren't doing too well in Europe but even in the rich European countries like Germany and France, there are a lot more androids than iphones. The only countries I saw with more iphones than androids were the UK and Norway (though there could be others though as I didn't c... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hi all, I wanted to put together a brief overview or sort of wiki thing for one of the biggest groups I see on here: Americans wanting to move to Europe. If you have questions or more to add (or you disagree!) please leave a comment and I can edit my post accordingly.
DISCLOSURE: I'm just an American guy who did it myself, and I see a lot of people who seem to want to move to Europe. Your experience may vary... dramatically. I'm sure plenty of people will take exception
#So you want to move to Europe, huh?
Welp, you're probably not the first person to think of that. Before you make the leap, I think it would be helpful to hear a few things from someone who has done the leap before. Twice, actually.
My background: I am a 35 year old college degreed (Bachelor's degree only) man with a wife and two kids. When I moved to Germany in 2014, I was only a US Citizen, though I was pursuing Italian Citizenship via Jure Sanguinis. My first move to Europe had me qualifying vi... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yes, European (not referring to UK) schools hand out degrees for a very cheap price or almost free. But please please don’t decide to study in Europe only for the price factor.
also, general public opinion toward US politics and America in this political climate is negative. If you are a staunch supporter of Trump, I wouldn’t count on meeting a lot people with a similar sentiment.
In my opinion the best non-UK places to study is:
Edit: ok i get it america is the bad guy irl but im talking about movie tropes you knuckleheads

The pandemic has disrupted our lives throughout the globe, and Istanbul has been no exception.
We as the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality are responsible for providing and maintaining services in transportation, infrastructure, environment, utilities, arts, culture, social aid, sports, and a lot more to a city of 16 million people.
My team and I are now dealing with unprecedented challenges in each of our areas of operation, along with a few rare opportunities.
We have been working round the clock for the past few months to help limit the contagion of the disease and provide relief for those bearing the brunt of the pandemic. Simultaneously, we are taking advantage of the lockdown as an opportunity to cleanse and disinfect public spaces, repave major roads and squares, upgrade our drainage systems, continue the construction of our new metro lines, and enhance cooperation with our international partn... keep reading on reddit ➡
The erdstall are tunnels that dot the map of Europe. Around 2,000 have been discovered across Europe, with the largest number being discovered in Germany (and to be more specific Bavaria) and Austria.
There are a few different types of erdstall that have distinct patterns, but most of the erdstall have a few traits in common. The tunnels are incredibly narrow (around 24 inches or 60 cm in width) and short (around 3'3" to 4'7" or between 1 m and 1.4 m). A good number of tunnels include a "slip" which is a point where the tunnel becomes even more narrow as it goes to a deeper level. These "slips" are impossible for less nimble or overweight people to pass through. These "slips" are important to bring up, because some of these erdstall tunnels are quite complex, with multiple layers like that of a modern subway system with different chambers and numerous offshooting tunnels. Only one entry point exists for these tunnels, and this entry point is frequently concealed in some fashion. The... keep reading on reddit ➡
