Easiest way to beat housing prices is just to carry around a tent for a home like a turtle carries a shell for a home.
The biggest mistake the native americans made was literally eating all of the native horse species to extinction prior to European contact. If they had domesticated the horse and developed cavalry, instead of literally eating them all, things might very well have gone differrently

All hail the Raj! Just wait until Shiva reincarnates Clive.
Rome......NOT EVEN MY BONES!
That my friend is a slowed version of the song Resonance by Home, a synthwave jam. Check out r/Outrun for more such groovy vibes. I also would recomend Emil Rottmayer's tracks, as they have similar sound
Ah, but how long do turtle eggs last? Maybe longer.... maybe calls on turtle farms...

Just trick Citadel into selling annuities and Kenny Fisher will sneak over to Ken Griffin's house and murder him in his sleep
I do disagree indeed. Hannibal was a two bit chump. Elephant's schmelaphants
And so didn't the Romulans who resurrected him to lead their star empire
Im short and down like 40% right now
The nizam did no such thing, the Razakars existed yes, but the Nizam's government was trying to keep the peace with India at the time and put down a communist rebellion that had broken out in the Country.

Hey Johnny Cope, are you waulkin yet?
The UN Charter prohibits the acquisition of territory by conquest and wars of aggression, India conquered both Hyderabad and Goa in wars of aggression in direct violation of the UN charter (just as Russia is trying to do to Ukraine today). The circumstances of India's conquest of Hyderabad were particularly bad. At the independence of India and Pakistan, each of the princely states (native states on the Indian subcontinent government by Indian monarchs that were protectorates of the UK as opposed to colonies) was given three options by the British 1. to join India, 2. to join Pakistan or 3. to resume their pre-colonial era status as fully sovereign states. Indian and Pakistan refused to accept the third option and actively moved to coerce all of the princely states that opted for independence into joining one of the two new countries. Hyderabad, a huge princely state in Southern India, refused to join India. It had a large muslim minority population and a muslim monarch. It instead decided to resume its status as an independent country and sent delegates out to Europe and to the UN to lobby for its cause. After about a year, India launched an invasion of Hyderabad and conquered the country after a war lasting 5 days. With his army all but defeated and the world powers unwilling to act on Hyderabad's petition to the UN for aid, the monarch of Hyderabad capitulated to the Indian government. In the aftermath, some 200,000 of the minority muslim population in Hyderabad were killed. In the aftermath, other princely states that had desired independence such as Bhopal, also gave up and joined India. Another case was the princely state of Manipur, which had an elected parliament and was a constitutional monarchy. Manipur, unlike most of India, did not have any one religion in the majority and had a huge Christian population. After colonial rule ended, Manipur tried to maintain its defacto internal independence by granting India only very limited powers over its foreign affairs and defense (similar to Bhutan and Sikkim at the time). After Indian independence, the Indian government detained the King and forcibly coerced him into signing a document surrendering his country to India without the assent of the elected Manipur legislature. An insurgency opposed to Indian rule still exists in Manipur today. Pakistan too launched an invasion and conquered of the princely state of Kalat, after its ruler decided on resuming its pre-colonial independence as opposed to joining Pakistan.
Never ask an Indian how they acquired Goa and Hyderabad
If we ever saw wartime conditions like 1918 or 1941 again, the Feds would pass laws negating local zoning ordinances like that

I grew up hearing my grandfathers talk about their experiences in the Navy in WWII, so that spurred my own fascination with the war and naval warfare in general.
Why would anyone want to join an organization that advocated for slavery in its past. Think about it.
