2019-12-03: We regret to inform users that the archiver stack FoolFuuka&Asagi on Rbt.asia, Desuarchive, Archived.moe, and others are suffering reduced accuracy and missing posts in scraping 4chan. New, efficient, and more accurate scrapers are in the progress of development, but needs assistance and testing from C# .NET and MySQL/Percona developers to be ready for use. On behalf of all archivers, unless FoolFuuka&Asagi is replaced, we will now be unable to scrape properly under the strain of deep software inefficiency and unsustainable costs (like fireden). More details here.

Were the Huns who attacked Europe the Xiongnu who were driven west by the Chinese Han dynasty? Some western historians thought they were.

The incompetency of early Asian firearms

No.8373899 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Chinese gunpowder weapons were extremely awful and impractical for combat. In the 16th century, Ming China had to buy muskets from Spain and Portugal instead of using native gunpowder technology to match https://books.google.ru/books?id=esnWJkYRCJ4C&pg=PA144&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false
>In 1519, while the Portuguese awaited the outcome of their embassy, they erected buildings and stockades a few miles down the coast from Guanzhou, at Tunmen. "They relied on their firearms to maintain themselves", says one Chinese account; "each discharge of a gun made a sound like thunder."5 The Chinese were not pleased. To make matters worse, rumors spread that the Portuguese were cannibals and that they had come to China to buy small children to eat. Relations were tense.6
>The story of how the Chinese first acquired Portuguese firearms technology is reported in a Chinese source as follows:
>He Ru, the police chief of Baisha in Dongguan county, had been to the Portuguese ship before because he had been assinged to collect the customs duty. He had seen Chinese people, Yang San and Dai Ming, who had lived in that country [actually Southeast Asia] for many years and knew all about their methods for building ships, casting guns, and making gunpowder. [Wang] Hong ordered He Ru to send someone to them secretly, using the sale of alcohol and rice as a pretext, to talk with Yang San covertly, order them to defect, and give them great rewards. They happily agreed, and arranged for He Ru to secretly row a small boat to bring them to the shore.7

Han Chinese - the largest ethnicity that never was

The Han Chinese never existed. It's a mainstream theory that all pre-dynastic Chinese rulers were fictional, and the dynasties preceding the Shang were also likely fictitious with there being almost no evidence to support the existence of the Xia dynasty. The Shang dynasty (where the Oracle bone script whcih would later become the modern Chinese script originated) was an irrelevant rump state that inherited a land hardly connected to the the rest of the world at all; consider that China was mostly desert outside of the Yellow river valley. Only through the conquest or assimilation of Caucasoid tribes in the region did China even gain any relevance to the rest of the world; the southward expansion only happened under the Qin and Han dynasties which originated in the 3rd century BC, as did the conquest of the Tocharians after the War of the Heavenly Horses against the Greeks, in 104 BC (which led to the establishment of the Silk http://en.protothema.gr/ancient-greco-chinese-war-of-the-heavenly-horses-photos-video/
Let that sink in, by 104 BC, Carthage fell, the Greeks in the west were losing their dominance to the Romans, in the east to the Parthians, Germanic tribes started expanding into Roman territory. Pompey was already alive, Cleopatra's father was 15 years old, the Seleucid empire was about to fall, and the Achaemenids, Neo-Babylonians, Neo-Assyrians, and other groups fell before that, the Phoenician navy already circumnavigated Africa before later the balance of power switched in favor for a Mediterranean dominated by Greeks (all of whom were already trading with India), so on so on. Nearly the entire early Iron Age let alone the Bronze Age passed when real "Chinese" history actually started to get relevant, let alone the fact that most of Chinese history before that was not only irrelevant, but completely fictitious.

You know what the French really wouldn't have seen coming?
Attack Paris from the South after marching your army through neutral Switzerland.
The French would have less defences there, plus since you'd be going downhill as you travel from Switz to Paris you'll have the higher ground

If general intelligence or "g" is so subjective and IQ tests like the Stanford-Binet 5, WAIS-IV, and Raven's Matrices (which show the presence of a bell curve) are "flawed", why don't you develop a better IQ test that doesn't show a bell curve? I'm waiting.
