I know some things about Soviet medals & orders awarded in 1920-1950. But it's really hard to become expert in phaleristics because your knowledge about awards is built on market surveillance, and forgeries are becoming more tricky every year.
There is a lot of 50-80 year old men who spent more than half their lives collecting medals and undocumented information, some of the grandpas gain immense authority in collector communities and can singlehandedly destroy the reputation of any particular award. The situation is aggravated by the fact that a lot of useful information exists only in Russian.

Keyword: Chill

Most people have no idea how to do sex and the first time between two people is always more of an awkward fumble at the best of times. What Jerry says rings true as well, sex is fun and should be approached with jovial enthusiasm even if you have to fake it.

Let's say you did find the dumb courage to tell her you're a 40 year old virgin trapped in a 30 year old man's body though - what will happen? She doesn't seem like some slag who will laugh at you for it or otherwise kick you out of bed in the knowledge that you will become infatuated. Why worry?

>That would reveal a lot of weakness

Literally everyone has been rejected. This isn't far off thinking you look weak by drinking water in public.

I sent a girl a letter. I had no way of contacting her as I met her at an outpatient psych treatment facility. We spent two hours skipping the groups outside, since she invited me to share a cig with her. We were so concentrated on talking her cig went out. She had a rare name, and she had told me what street she lived on since she lived close by. So I googled her first name, found her last and yeah.

I scribbled on a ripped piece of paper. "I couldnt contact you with the roam roam, heres mine 148888888"

she didnt have any social media and use phrases that fascinated me. instead of "yes", she would say, Do birds fly?

Im killing myself in 10 days so i needed to make sure I saw this through.

What do you think of this gentleman? First thing I saw from him was the ascent of money, and I learned quite a lot from it, saw the docs some 5 times, but ever since then I never read anything good from him. Maybe the good stuff from Ascent of Money came from his sources, from pre-estabilished theories that he borrowed from, not from himself, I'm downloading the book to check the sources.

Have you ever felt after reading anonymous post "Oh, what a cool poster that is", but later remembering that it was you?
And vice versa - at first you were "It's my post", but later - "Wait, it couldn't be my post"?

Slavic women do take the piss when it comes to makeup. I would even suggest that all the stuff they plaster on is the chief cause of young babushka syndrome.

You're completely wrong. Slavic women have access to normal makeup and skincare for less than 30 years. Young babushka syndrome came exactly from that time, today even 30-40 year old women can be hot

Have you at any point had a countryboo phase? (If you feel that way still there's no shame).

Who was it and what exactly did you like about them? Your reasons can be complex or shallow, it doesn't matter.

I'm way more interested in your posts because mine is going to suck. I only did this in high school.

First it was Scotland and this honestly wasn't from muh heritaging. I started to play as them in Medieval 2 total war and the style of their units really appealed to me. I remember thinking the voice actor that informed me of things was the only one in the game that didn't sound like a faggot, and he sounded so mean whenever we won.

Then I really liked how they formed pike walls against English cavalry. We watched some documentary about the French and Indian war, and there was a very costly battle for the English where they tried to capture this fort all day and were getting slaughtered at the wall, the video made it a point that a unit of Scotsman managed to actually make it inside the fort and hold their position for hours. Well that made me tingle in history class. It was overall really shallow, I think my angry insecure metalhead teenage self just found them masculine because of a videogame. Thankfully I never even watched Braveheart until after this phase was over.

I think their are similarities. Swedes like their queues, so do brits. But in Sweden, they queues are more subtle and not as readily visible to the outsider. Swedes aren't as direct and in-your-face as Germans, same as Brits. You can talk bullshit in it's purest form and voice the most retarded opinion, and a Swede or a Brit won't call you a retard. The Brit will pretend to agree and backstab you later, the Swede will offer a foul compromise.

>The whole mentality around things being clean and tidy was also, I think, a reaction against the austerity and horrors of war
This is an angle I hadn't considered-why American pop culture was so squeaky clean. Viewing 'Father Knows Best'as a finger in the ears denial of complex emotional issues is worty of more attention (later, I don't want to derail the thread any further.)
Your point on America and Germany seen as post war victor vs vanquished also has me thinking about how they both moved to change. The Civil Rights Act was looking within to demand better of ourselves(for Americans); while rolling across borders can be viewed as Germany looking at the outside world as the problem. Again, I'll have to think more on that later.
I appreciate your response to my elaboration, as well as your original post calling out my knee jerk thoughts on history. If I can get away with lazy analysis, it's a slippery slope into sh*t-posting.

Swedes are (or maybe used to be, i don't know if they have changed recently) overly polite, Anglos only appear to be overly polite.
>The Brit will pretend to agree and backstab you later, the Swede will offer a foul compromise.
Backstabbing vs. seeking for compromise. That's pretty different.

>Etiquette (/ˈɛtɪˌkɛt/ or /ˈɛtɪkɪt/, French: [e.ti.kɛt]) is a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group.

British etiquette is largely based upon the same formalities as Swedes such as personal space, silent disapproval, overly elaborate dinner party ritual etc. This is why our humour is similar as we both enjoy the farcical elements that result, hence why British comedy remains popular in the country (https://www.thelocal.se/20061219/5854).

I also object to our class system being presented as something it is not. Workplaces have hierarchy but our social contract centering on the jury trial has always been anti-authority and brimming with protestant frugality. You have fundamentally failed to grasp the intricacies of British class relations or why British and Swedish societies remain divergent over the question of individual/communitarian thinking.

So to summarise, you're either trying to get my tits or you really are this thick. Neither of those option btw is a good look as you're expecting me to fight you over who is Sweden's bf.

No. The only thing it might change is cook time and the sauce. A large zitti is going to taste different in that regard because it will be full of sauce as opposed to fettucini which will have less sauce taste.
