It feels like a topic that would be right up his alley, you've got politics, war strategy, lots of different perspectives.
Also this might just be me but I also dont feel like napopean gets as much attention as he deserves.
I've been watching the show from the beginning while I work. Some people miss a parameter or two by accident in terms of length or an edge in some episodes, but this was just terrible. They were asked to do ladder pattern damascus and....all of them just failed horrifically. they tried to turn in 3 and 7 layer "damascus" then wondered why their patterns didn't show up. I wanted them all sent home.

Hey! I recently purchased a napolean 1450 pedestal woodstove and will be installing it shortly.
My question is about the hearth pad. My ceiling in my basement is pretty low. About 7' 2", the manual says i need 7 feet from the bottom of the stove to the roof. So i dont have to many options for a hearth pad. I have been looking at the black metal pads that are pretty basic. From the manual it looks like it will have to be 41.5" wide and 53" deep.
Im having a hard time finding any that are this big. Anyone have any suggestions for where to buy one? Im located in Ontario as well
Ordered this to replace an old Weber Spirit gas grill. Ordered from BBQGuys and freight shipping took about a week (they shipped next day). Got it assembled today just in time for the rain, so sadly probably won't get to use it until the weekend. Here's an imgur album of unboxing and assembly - https://imgur.com/a/ixsqyKF
Just wondering if Napolean was well-liked or disliked (especially in France) or if he's another historical figure you just read about in History class. Is there any nationalism in France thinking about Napolean?
Im on mobile, bad formatting. Napolean in is prime and Alexander in his prime.
Round 1: The R6 operatives must defend a mansion. The Vietcong are outfitted with Vietnam-War era weapons. The Vietcong have no current knowledge of the enemy, and have a month of training. Napolean does not have knowledge of any modern tactics. Alexander doesn't know about the Vietcong either. Napolean and Alexander have no planning time.
Round 2: Same scenerio except the Vietcong have to defend now. They have modern day weapons and full knowledge of the current modern warfare tactics. They have had 6 weeks of training. Alexander the Great has full knowledge as well, but does not traim the operators.
Round 3: Napolean trains the vietcong for one year, they are outfitted with modern weapons and gear. Napolean knows everything about the Operatives, their skills, weapons, abilities and attacks. The vietcong must defend a JUNGLE for a week to win. The 50 Vietcong may engage in guerrilla warfare. Operators have an infinite supply of their gadgets and ammo, the same applies to the Vietcong. Alexander only knows the Vietcong tactics from the Vietnam war. He has trained the operators for 6 months.
im 40...felt like i was 30 yesterday. time flies and it speeds up as you age(somehow). DONT wait to quit, or start trying now(at least to cut back heavily!) The amount of regrets and the time ive wasted is staggering. And NOBODY to blame but ole me. DONT BE ME.
IF you r here, its cause you know this is the right move, dont be obstinate and stubborn like me and wait until your fucking 40 or older to let it go...
LET IT GO...life is waiting on the other side..TRUST
I'm about to upgrade my 12 year old Weber Spirit and have the Napolean Prestige 500 sitting in my cart just waiting for my credit card info. Stupid me then looked for reviews and saw some on Amazon saying the build quality is poor and the heat uneven. I know the Rogue line is made in China, and Prestige in Canada, but otherwise I can't find a lot of actual reviews of them. Does anyone have the Prestige 500? Love it? Hate it? Am I better off sticking with Weber (budget is $1500 and I do want the rotisserie).
(I know that Spain loses these territories eventually to the US in the American Spanish War, but how did Spain specifically keep control on those islands?)
He's hated because hes got so much SWAG!!!!!
Napoleonic Wars : Gain Access to a unique Casus Belli at the Nationalism Civic, “ Napoleonic War”. The target must be denounced for 5 turns AND within 10 tiles of a French city. During this war, French units cost -1 maintenance, gain +1 CS every turn, and ranged units have +1 Range when near a Great General. French cities do not incur war weariness, and only Civs present on the Target’s Capital Continent incur Grievances, which are halved. The war ends automatically after 15 turns, and the CB cannot be used again until the next era. Cannot enter / renew friendships or alliances during Napoleonic Wars. Artifacts retrieved from Other Civs lands earn double culture and Tourism. If Napoleon is a living leader when the “Napoleon Bonaparte” general is available, it’s renamed to “Jean Lannes”.
Agenda : Napoleonic Code : Likes Civs that launch Wars with Casus Belli. Dislikes Civs that declare Surprise Wars, or have not declared war at all in the last 100 turns.
The Idea : I actually didn’t think France’s Civ 5 ability was a great fit for Napoleon, so I made something up. Besides, both Catherine and Eleanor can take France in a Culture direction. Sometimes you just wanna destroy your neighbors lives, though.
It’s France, but … angry, and I thought a unique CB was a cool idea. It’s limited by it’s late appearance, the hard 15-turn limit, and the fact that you can only use it, maybe 4 times total.
It looks like a lot, explaining what the idea for the CB even IS, but it boils down to "a powerful unique, though more restrictive, Casus Belli, and buffed stolen artifacts"
The collapse of the Soviet Union unleashed a storm of chaos and uncertainty across Russia. Long forgotten ideas were made anew, the hopelessness of the second great patriotic struggled with the idealism and opportunity of the chaos that followed, and amidst it all the humble did their best to eke out an existence, and pray that the sun would shine a little brighter tomorrow.
A few of the warlords might have seemed born of ideas -- scions of evil, of idealism, of faith, of madness -- but most of them were more philosophical mongrels. It should not be unexpected that the eventual victors in the conflict were men who represented the contradictions of Russia -- its history and its future. Its poverty and its grandeur. From a horde of tin-pot tyrants and little kings ruling over little hills emerged two great empires: in the East, the Grand Principality of Siberia, ruled by its “Tsar” Rurik II; in the West, the Russian Soviet Federative Republic ruled by Grand Marshal Mikhail Tukhachevsky.
In some respects, the two men were polar opposites. The former was a Tsar, whose legitimacy he had wrested from long forgotten forebearers. Although his kingdom was austere, the Tsar himself never let a day pass without emptying a bottle, and though his armies had proved their prowess on the field many times over, their supreme commander greatly preferred the power and pleasures of his imperial palace.
By comparison, the “red khan" had swore off all material vices the day he became supreme commander. When he could have been feasting on fine wine and venison, he instead ate gruel and stew besides his men. For him, thee new Soviet sate was merely a means to an end: the great and inevitable global destruction of the bourgeois and fascist imperialists.
After the defeat of the last of their immediate opposition, the two leaders sent out spies, and could not help but admire the other. Tukhachevsky was reminded irresistibly of his old commander Voroshiliv, while in his cups Rurik would wistfully compare the bold, brilliant commander to the west with his own squabbling children. As the armies mobilied song the long frontier, each alternated between threats and promises, as if desperate to avoid initiating the impending conflict.
However, Russia could only have one ruler. And so, despite the misbegotten efforts of Prince Yuriy in the East and the remnants of Zhukov’s clique in the west, the storm broke, and the great armies clashed. Tukhachevsky's men were lean and practiced, Rur... keep reading on reddit ➡
Who knew life could be this hard
Zulu tribe a beating heart
Pusuing life until I meet a God
Green lights but don't need a car
We tight and can be apart
Reach the End when you see the start
Earning stripes or those Addidas bought?
Some at an advantage just for being born
But could never manage what we endured
Blame yourself if you're not reading more
It's wide open why would you need a door?
You going bully until you need a dork
Settle differences you just need to talk
When we talk of modern democracies turning into dictatorships, there is much recorded dissent and resistance like in the cases of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. While comparisons of France of Napolean to these two states are not without problems, were there voices of dissent and the form of ideological warfare which were a staple in Nazi Germany (atleast before Hitler becoming dictator) which were later suppressed by Napolean.
