The Irish Potato Famine

https://youtu.be/4nL_RsAjxhg Some good lessons from the Irish potato famine show that supply chains, farming luck, and power structures can cause problems. We took a tour of the so-called 'coffin-ships' the last time we were in Ireland and the conditions were horrendous.

How to Prepare For (And Survive) Nuclear War

It’s technically possible, but it won’t be easy Image credit “It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” — JRR Tolkein A few years ago, while making a documentary on human trafficking, my wife and I visited Switzerland. When we arrived at our host’s house, the first thing he did was take us down into the basement to show us his nuclear bunker. It was fantastic. Concrete walls… several weeks of food… a nice little library of books… a totally sealable door. It even had a well in the concrete floor so…

Those About To Die 14 – Twelve Beautiful Young Girls

UP UNTIL THE SECOND CENTURY A.D., there still remained some sense of fair play in the games. A gladiator had a chance to leave the arena alive. He could even insist that the lanista put a price on him and if he could raise the sum he was free. An animal generally had a good chance to kill his human opponent, so the contest was often fairer than a modem bullfight. There was at least a pretence that the games were still contests—bloody, brutal and cruel but still retaining some idea of giving the contestants a sporting chance unless they…

Those About To Die 13 – Where The Multitude Of Animals Came From‌‌

YOU MAY WONDER where the Romans got all the animals they used in the games. You'll wonder more after reading a few statistics.

Those About To Die 12 – The Variations In The Games‌‌

MARCUS AURELIUS, the great Roman emperor and philosopher, remarked: "I wouldn't mind the games being brutal and degrading if only they weren't so damned monotonous." Although the Romans devoted an enormous amount of ingenuity to ringing in variations, there is no doubt that Marcus was right. But the mob had developed a morbid taste for the spectacles which had to be gratified. Nietzsche believes that the great driving power which had made the Romans masters of the world had to be given a vent. With no worlds left to conquer, their force was dissipated in watching these holocausts. So I'll…
