St. Patrick’s Day

Well another day where people will be getting drunk on green beer and celebrating based on if their ancestry included some frisky drunk Irish whore at one point.

And just think there’s a whole island full of those awful people.

Anyway, here’s videos on Irish mythology and legends. Go ahead and culturally appropriate for your stories, nobody gives a shit.

Cu Chulainn's a lot less impressive when you realize his real name's Sétanta, and when he was playing hurley and killed someone's dog, he took on that dog's job of protecting the old man and the new name, which is the equivalent of "John's Dog".

Didn't plan to. On the plus side, Ireland won the Grand Slam, which means we beat every other team in the big internationl rugby championship, so it's a grand day. If you didn't know, Rugby's like American Football, except it's not made up of soft cunts and we don't name teams after people we exterminated

You’d have to exterminate a people first.

I don't see how that would be a good thing anyhow.

Arguably genocide eliminates the potential of groups of people becoming a problem in the future.

For example if the Euros had been even more thorough in their extermination of native populations, they wouldn’t have had to worry about uprisings and losing the territory they conquered.

A good thing for the conquerers, not a good thing for the conquered of course, but they would be dead and it wouldn’t matter.

Now you could say such a thing would have cost more time/resources and deprived them of manpower to get shit done immediately since they either outright enslaved native pops or just heavily exploited them to do their bidding, which is true, but that’s the trade off. Either gain the short term benefits of slavery or the long term benefits of genocide.

True, in the long term there arguably are benefits to genocide even for the ones being genocided. All the tribes that got wiped out by their more warlike and efficient (ie: superior) neighbors prior to European arrival didn't have to later face having their world turned upside down by whitey, their children never had to get smallpox or exploited, robbed, enslaved, etc. This principle applied pretty equally all over the world.

Organized, systematic removal of a population is a lot more humane than the terror and uncertainty of outright warfare of course but, it's rare a population is dedicated and efficient enough. There's always some bleeding hearts trying to throw a wrench in the works too.

I feel it'd be a bit of a waste of time to start listing ALL the peoples rugby-playing countries have exterminated, but Incas, Aztecs, Aborigines, Herero, Nama and San all haven't done real well.

This is true.

 

But regardless, its still not made up of soft cunts wearing body armour.

Cotton polo shirt and shorts is all you get. Maybe a leather cap if you're in the scrum.

Yeah, was a bit disappointed when my dad told me about the rugby result. "Because they needed another reason to get pissed tonight" was more or less my response over the phone.
