A rather eclectic channel. Videos include many 'points' about ancient and medieval warfare and technology; rants to the camera; dance-related stuff; animated films; evolutionary psychology; silliness.
The most major project is "Built for the Stone Age", which I'd rather like to see made properly for television. My major work-in-progress is a steampunk comedy "The Adventures of Stoke Mandeville, Astronaut and Gentleman.

I love your channel Indy, but you seem to have forgotten the early years of the war when the Wehrmacht drove the BEF out of Belgium & France; & Rommel’s Africa Corps pushing the British out of Libya & back into Egypt.

I suspect that the choice of which to carry was mostly dictated by the rank you fought in. The guys at the back would likely carry the light ones, and throw them over the heads of their allies. The guys at the front, with a direct shot, would use the heavy ones. Seems logical, at least.

lindy a recent convert after watching you on little wars tv, i have to say a really considered and thoughtful watch. human life no matter what colour, race or creed is precious, I also think we tend to forget about the 20++ million russians and the 15++ millions of chinese killed by the japanese in WW2

Oh lord I just thought of something potentially unsettling... If half-breeds cannot have children, wouldn't that make them the ideal sexual plaything? I can see the majority of prostitutes in a fantasy setting like this being half-breeds because you can have sex with them without fear of pregnancy. It would give half-breeds a whole new level of stigma if that were the case; if you recognize a half-breed, they might carry a cultural and societal funk with them because people are familiar with the common profession and stereotype of half-breeds being prostitutes. Plus, in terms of attraction, I can see them being appealing to a wide variety of people because depending on what they're a cross between, both attributes are seen in them.

Rattle snakes , rattle and it freezes you to the spot. I was actually shot in the head with a high powered slug gun , it was in my head for 6 months before they dug it out , my mother was mortified, she thought she was a much better shot than she was , or I am not that good at balancing an apple on my head , hard to tell really why she was so upset.

One question I have about this is how the metallurgy of the modern armor, and the modern arrowhead for that matter, compares to authentic period armor. An arrow might not have a chance against modern steel, but it might fare better against the relatively primitive metallurgy of middle age armor plates... maybe.

Aside from the stress soldiers have to deal with having done something so incompatible with the moral system most humans have, conditioning a shoot to kill reflex likely also causes more civilian casualties and makes it harder for soldiers to re-integrate into society when they come home. Maybe the first step in recruiting infantry should be to find those 2% who don't need to be reconditioned. Either those who can shoot to kill without provocation are dangerous people and we should prevent them from signing up, or not needing to recondition them would prevent the issues caused by our current methods.

The Ha-Go was a very good tank. It was not designed for taking on other tanks, it was designed to support infantry in attacks on Chinese positions. The Chinese, lacking anti-tank equipment, and the terrain not being suitable for heavy and large tanks, so they chose to use a small, light and fast tank. The Japanese were never actually prepared to go up against other tanks, however, a Ha-Go can easily destroy an M3 Stuart. The best Japanese tank that actually saw service could take on a Sherman. However, during the battle of Tarawa, a Ha-Go disabled a Sherman tank by actually knocking out the Sherman's gun. But when you look at what the Japanese designed the Ha-Go to go up against, and it's performance in what it was designed to do, it was a great tank.

It takes way less energy to step back and avoid parrying at all. Large sweeping blows require recovery time where you are extremely vulnerable. The vast majority of swordsmen would have a shield as well to block with. A shield was far cheaper and easier to make for the common soldier so that would be the go-to defense. Sure in a pinch someone would use their swords to defend, but they would use other defenses. And for many smaller blows, armor was more than sufficient to block it. Bronze weapons and early iron/steel weapons were much weaker and prone to chipping than the swords of the middle ages/Japan, the army compositions also forced men into densely packed areas requiring all out attacks to survive and this is why so many swords of the ancient world are chipped.

7:33 In every language there are orthographic rules, very few languages are written down with the regional dialects, it's not only a characteristic of English, for example, a sentence in Spanish: - Me gusta mucho ir a la playa por las mañanas - Me guta musho i a la playa po la mañana The last example is the dialect of Andalusia, in southern Spain (probably not very accurate). The first one is the one that is use in all the Spanish speakers countries, and the same happens with french, German, Russian... Then, you said that English has a very useful way of reading because the ambiguity of the words doesn't exist, for example two, to or too. Well, sorry but that's a very stupid argument, if, for example 2 is written as "to" if you read "I will go to a house" your are not going to think that "to" is refering to 2, because the sentence will have no sense, most of the words that sound the same refers to totally different things, and anyone can know that. A writing system needs to be easy and practical, we don't need to know the history of the language by reading it, because the only thing I want to know is what the book, web, message, letter... Is telling me, I don't care about the story of the language at this moment, and If I were interested in the story of English I would to Wikipedia or I would study linguistics. The written language needs to be easy and precise, and English is not. English is not the best writing system in Europe, in fact I think that is one of the worst of Europe as far as I know.

They are working on what you describe. If you have lots of moving pictures, then you can use time to map changes and guess at what's going on. The faster the movement the better to a point. To fast and the camera can't keep up. Too slow and there's not enough information for a guess. But it's still a guess.

If the name "Spandau" or "MG34/42" causes such a controversy, why insist on calling it by a name that is controversial and technically incorrect? Wasn't the original intention to compare the MG34/42 with the Bren gun? Instead you undermined what might have been a reasonably informative video. Say slowly after me... "MG34"... now "MG42"... it's not too difficult, is it? Forget F***ing "Spandau" already. Please! :D
