Where did the idea off angels with wings come from?

It is because of their shining grace. The radiant light coming from their spiritual essence appears to be as wings when observed. It's also the same reason saints and other holy figures were depicted with a halo around their heads. It is a visu representation of the light of their grace.

Egypt. The worlds but load of animist cultures plopped all their chimera gods and goddesses on Egypt’s front doorstep, and they entertained themselves playing mashup with these features for ages. Later, the Persians made a fun spirit mashup representing their kings spirit, using aspects of the lion, eagle, squirrel and orangutan, though I’m less sure about those last two, and carved sculptures of the beast & adopted it as that kings (&his city) symbol, which then got cooped & carried on by every successive dipshit wandering around in the desert waiting for their turn to get sacked by the Greeks.

There's one (only one) example of an angel in the Bible that is described as having swan's wings. I think it's in Ezekiel, might be Isaiah... All other angels are not described with wings, save maybe a few Revelations ones but I can't recall any.

Ezekiel and Isaiah are very old books, and likely the source for winged figures across the globe. Previously cherubs were depicted as the Heavenly winged creatures, cherubs are some sort of beast with odd features.

Wikipedia is shit. But it's also normative. For instance AmaryllisGardener almost singelhandedly vandalied the concept of scots. (He can't speak it. So he just wrote english with an groundskeeper Willy accent.)

India is The Motherland of the european whites as well as the arabic-semite whites.

India is the Motherland from which the both यूरोपan whites and the semitic Whites were born.

isn't history a mad thing? it's like look at this crazy shit these people did and they'd do it again and they're doing it now. then its like, 99% chance none of it matters when you die so why would bother? its like, have humans changed at ALL? i mean really have they? I don't think so, it's only our environment that changes, technology and urbanization are the present state but if we were broken up into small, SPACED cities without modern transport and communication or we'd be blowing eachother up to smithereens, prove me wrong

Do what mfer?
Look, it’s not that hard. You can take any group of apes, separate some of them off into a separate group and wait, and then reintroduce them to each other, they will fight. Humans are simple animals. Only slightly more intelligent than most species, but less so compared to a couple others, the jury’s still out on whether you could call this species intelligent at all. If it is intelligent enough to create biochem, nuclear & environmental weapons and eliminate all its predators but not intelligent enough to avoid poisoning or irradiating itself or destroying its ability to survive in the natural world, well then that makes it considerably less intelligent as a species than any other, and what it considered intelligence is a mental illness, an OCD-like ability to hyper-focus on details but completely fail to function in a greater perspective.

Romanian vampire hotel built under Ceaușescu? Historian 21/09/20(Mon)09:45 No. 15527 [Reply]

File 163212390947.jpg - (18.33KB , 612x474 , bela-lugosi-eyes-hair-color-1.jpg )

I saw it on a documentary, but don't recall the name of it. The core of the story was something like this:

>party boss sees the benefit of building a Dracula-themed hotel or at least a hotel in Dracula's home turf, because it could attract foreign capital in the form of Dracula-tourism
>goes on a hunting trip with Ceaușescu, because you're a big deal
>asks indirectly if it wouldn't be a good idea to build a hotel in the region
>gets an OK from Ceaușescu

PLOT TWIST: The hotel wasn't in the exactly correct position, but OTOH, the protagonist of Stoker's Dracula doesn't know if he's Vlad III or any of his sons that later lived in Transylvania.

So, does anyone please know the exact details of the hunting trip and the hotel?

We need a giant battlefield movie, set in any period with gunfire... preferably the Seven Year's War, this would be the best way to vicariously live in the most interesting parts of all of history

With all the funds... GoPro's in the actors playing the cavalry, artillery, officers, rankers, battlefield observers.. jumping to the king's point of view ( in some cases the General himself ) showing BOTH sides of the conflict. or third parties like nearby villagers or deserters

The scale will need to be huge, 40,000 ideally...

With so many perspectives (goProCams) you'd get a like a movie in the third dimension, you wouldn't necessarily sit down and watch it, though it could be edited that way for multiple movies within the battle, or you'd click on different cameras while the movie is playing throughout time and choose what you are watching and from who's point of view

6 hours worth of a continuous acting on a battlefield with high tech special effects and scripting would produce the most content ever

If Europeans are considerate to their ancestors they could work together to make it happen, i mean by god! they've been doing it for 300 years, this is a minor project to them!

The expense with live actors would make such a project absolutely impossible, these days. I doubt you could make 'Braveheart' today. CG could take up a lot of that slack, but only if it was WELL done.

As for the conflict, I always enjoyed the Kurasawa flicks, and would love to see a sprawling, stormy, action-packed treatment of Sekigahara...especially if it made Tokugawa Ieasyu into the vicious, treacherous bastard he really was. As OP mentioned 'Waterloo', I will note that the real trick, apart from tens of thousands of trained troopers to the the marching, fighting, and drying, is finding actors of the calibre of Rod Steiger and Christopher Plummer. Could Japan prodyce a Takashi Shimura or a Toshiro Mifune today? Big boots to fill, chief.
