This is happening in Huddersfield a Yorkshire town again. Why are the authorities hiding this latest crime against our girls? Where is the outcry? Why are they hiding it? Are they embarrassed that their multicultural experiment has failed miserably? Are they worried nationwide riots could break out?

  • If the Nazis had dinosaurs, could they have won WWII?

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone. The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat.

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone.

    The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat. You could feed them human casualties, but using Allied dead would provide a propaganda weapon and using Axis dead would cause morale problems, so that would leave Holocaust casualties. Shipping the bodies from Poland to the front would be unsanitary, and murdering victims (or providing them to be devoured live) at the front would be bad for morale, logistics, and secrecy.

    The main problems are that dinos 1) don't use ranged weapons and 2) are stupid. Raptors are fast and *might* work for fights where they can get close enough (like nighttime or against forest partisans), but wars are won with logistics. My own choice would be cloned mammoths to pull supply wagons through the Russian cold & mud, provided I could feed them.

    Best answer: There was no USA till well after 1776.

    Systematic European colonization began in 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sailed west to find a new trade route to the Far East but inadvertently landed in what came to be known to Europeans as the "New World". Running aground on the northern part of Hispaniola on 5 December 1492, which the Taino people had inhabited since the 7th century, the site became the first European settlement in the Americas. European conquest, large-scale exploration and colonization soon followed. Columbus's first two voyages (1492–93) reached the Bahamas and various Caribbean islands, including Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba. In 1498, John Cabot, on behalf of England, landed on the North American coast, and a year later, Columbus's third voyage reached the South American coast. As the sponsor of Christopher Columbus's voyages, Spain was the first European power to settle and colonize the largest areas, from North America and the Caribbean to the southern tip of South America.

  • Explain differences between playing violin and guitar?

    So I’m not a master violinist of any sorts but I played in school and am lucky enough to own one to play for fun every now and then- which my friends think is pretty cool (a plus).

    So I’m not a master violinist of any sorts but I played in school and am lucky enough to own one to play for fun every now and then- which my friends think is pretty cool (a plus). Well one of them is pretty musically inclined (they play guitar) and wanted to jam out together. I told them I do t really do that- it’s hard to just break out a violin, like you need space for the bow and if your on the couch you sink in and it’s hard to play etc etc. I’m also not the most confident in my abilities. Anyways we end up kind of doing it but they got increasingly frustrated I wasn’t able to “go with the flow” and saying as long as it’s in the same key it’ll be fine. Anyways my question is: is there really a difference in approaching playing guitar vs violin? I feel like violinist are expected to play more complicated melodies and guitar (especially acoustic) is meant more so to accompany- which is probably where the disparity came from. Though I’m sure my barely average playing abilities contributed. Still I found it very interesting. Thoughts?
